    Cryptopay swiper push switch (button) issue

    Just installed Cryptopay and new Dixmor LED 9 timers. On one of the bays, it seems like it requires multiple pushes of the stop button (count up mode ) before the Dixmor timer ends the cycle and displays the credit card charges.

    Cameras and security systems

    I purchased a 4k system from backstreet surveillance. Periodically, when I try to remotely view what is happening at the carwash it shows the system offline. The only way I have found to correct this problem is to reboot the NVR. Any ideas on how to solve this? Anybody else experience this.?

    Is 22ga meter box wire acceptable?

    How would I identify that? I only see 24vac to the motor starter coil. The heater portion consist of 3 screw in coils (one for each phase) that react to excess current. Seems to be a mechanical trip.

    I'm rewiring some meter boxes and was wondering what is the correct size (width) spade connector for an electroswitch? The ones at the local box store were too wide. I probably need to order them. Any preferred brand or part number? Will be using 18 gauge stranded wire.
