Welcome to Tech Perfect!

Technology has come a long way since the wheel, but it has a long ways to go before anyone can claim it has been perfected.  No one company or individual has a strangle-hold on innovation, though several individuals and companies may stand out as leaders in their fields.  But the leaders of today can be the bankrupt or laggards of tomorrow: we as technical consumers need to keep pressing for what we expect from our technology: perfection!

At Tech Perfect, we strive to do the following:

  • Never fall under anyone’s reality distortion field
  • Applaud solid user experiences, and call out poor/buggy ones
  • Be nerdy when called for

We plan on following both consumer and enterprise developments in technology, so stay tuned!

  1. Jeff,
    First off thank you.

    I was thinking of using the AC powered UPS system (e.g 2000VA, http://www.upsforless.com/oneon2000xaref.aspx) as he main ‘feed’. One output from the UPS could feed into a 14 A DC power source (http://www.amazon.com/Pyramid-PS14KX-Amp-Power-Supply/dp/B0002JTD20/ref=pd_cp_e_2) which ‘feeds’ the distributed dc power box (http://www.amazon.com/9Port-12Volt-Distributed-Security-Camera/dp/B005BHR776/ref=sr_1_23?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316810145&sr=1-23) which would power the cameras. The 12A DC battery could thus become the backup for only the DC components of the DSC Alarm subsystems, since the BAT/cameras would be powered by the DC power source which itself takes power from the UPS. One could also connect the lead battery to a trickle charger (http://www.amazon.com/Schumacher-SEM-1562A-Speed-Charge-Maintainer/dp/B0009IBJAS/ref=pd_bxgy_auto_text_c) at one end and the UPS at the other end, so the battery could be permanently charged from the UPS system. Since the UPS is only powering the alarm, the total power requirements are likely to be less than 1000VA, so a 2000VA should be sufficient. Unfortunately I was unable to locate a UPS which offers both 12V DC output and 120V AC filtered output. Thanks again and respectfully, Br9
