These are brand new in the box with the XC22A camera, XM16A power supply, mounting screws, and instructions. The boxes may have some marks on them, but are in pretty good shape. Due to the age of these, I tested each one to be sure they work as they should. Video is not too bad for such old tech. Sound is descent. The focus is good. The instructions say it works in low light conditions--in reality not so much. In my experience, the lower the light, the less viewable the picture.
Actual Screenshot of the Picture from the XX20A
NOTE: The semi-circular lines on the picture are the result of taking a picture of the TV screen. When viewing it live, the lines are not there.
The power supply is remote controllable via an X10 signal thru the AC line. You will need to already have a basic X10 system to put X10 ON/OFF signals on your AC line to switch the camera on and off.
NOTE: These operate at 2.4Ghz. If you have anything in your home (for example a cordless phone) that operates at this same frequency, there will be interference on both. Symptoms of interference could range anywhere from bars in the video, crackling on the audio, to no viewable picture at all. My cordless phone operates at 2.4Ghz. When I unplugged the power to the phone, the interference went away.
