VCR Record on off

May seem like a stupid question but I want to use a VCR as a DVR for CCTV camera's. Is there anyway of switching the record on and off via existing connections ... ie SCART etc ? Cheers ... jk

I think Optex has an IR interface capable of being programmed to act as a remote for most consumer VCRs. Most surveillance VCRs have trigger inputs built in for hardwaired switching.

There are also some video motion sensing devices out there, but I would stick with a more reliable external such as a door contact ona covered door or an IR/Microwave motion sensor.
