Hello everyone,

My company has a few Vantech VP3601, Dahua HCVR4116HS-S2, and some old VDtech that i can not read the label anymore as they are faded away.
As for DVR : 1 Vantech, 1 Dahua, 1 VDtech.

It's a mess, i know.
Now my company wants to install more cameras, and Hikvision is preferably going to be a candidate because of recent ratings.
Changing DVRs is not an option because they are still functional.
My question is, is there a software for PC, Android, IOS for those 4 brands all in one as viewing on separately software is nuisance and time consuming.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

P/s : About Dahua, i heard that series manufactured after 2016 have high faulty rates, can anyone confirm on this info ?

Hi. We need more info.

Nothing wrong with dahua .... and as far as going hikvision you have nothing that supports tvi

hybrid recorder is the one that supports analog and digital at the same time right ?

Hi Tomcctv,

OK, after a bit of research, turns out TVI is a very nice feature to have.

But as far as i can see DVR from Hikvision for example DS-7116HQHI-K1 does have TVI support. So i don't know why you said otherwise ?

Hi in your first post .... changing recorders is not an option you said.

I read it as getting more hikvision cameras .... which would be tvi since hik dropped analog ..... and your existing dvr will not run tvi
