I have recently purchased some 360 degree cameras from a boot sale that they use in shops.
There a 6 of them. I am quite technical but can I hell set them up.
Does anybody know how to set them up and or will I need a multiplexer for them.

You need to know several things
How are they powered?
What type of connection do they use?

Then you need to figure out how you want to monitor what they pick up. A PVR will set you back a lot more than the cameras did. These things are available from places liek Maplin and screw fix direct.

It is possible that they can be connected to a laptop, but you will then need software to control the capture.

Personally, I dont think they will be very suitable. The image quality probably wont be the best and the associated problems with getting them functioning means they could be quite unreliable.

As with many things at boot sales, they tend to sell junk that no one else wants. Do you know they even work?

Here is a link for complete system:

Look into it first. It may be quite simple. But I beleive by the time you buy the gear to get them working, the
