    Remote control not working

    Hi … not seen one of those for years if your getting the warning on your screen then it’s not the sender units ….. they don’t control any part of your system what happends when you use the dvr remote direct ? how is recorder connected to remote monitor
  4. I forgot to tick reply notifications 😑
  5. hi im using marmitek powermid xl transmitter and receiver for my cctv. We have just changed to hikvision dvr from concept-pro, but for some reason all im getting is "channel doesnt exist ". The notification only goes off when I unplug the transmitter and receiver, yet the remote and marmitek powermid has worked on the last 2 dvr,s we have had. Only change is that this dvr is a hybrid. Any ideas thankyou

    Does the system need to work at night? A batteries voltage drops as power is drawn from it. Once the battery goes below 12, the 12v regulator will stop working and your cameras will turn off.

    Did you mean the solar charge controller side. The regulator will be connected to the solar charge controller and the DVR and camera in the output of the regulator. Why 2.5A DVR and 6 cameras could draw about 3A

    Excellent, I'll keep that option in mind. Thanks a lot.

    Detection systems

    Hi your right to avoid alarm sensors going with a recorder with alarm inputs gives you a very cheap but reliable option that does not give false alarms you can use duel beam sensors …. Both beams need to be broken to activate and your dvr will send you the alerts https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sensor-Infrared-Detector-Outdoor-Security/dp/B07BCBBFYG/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=1O4PM0O50TY99&keywords=External+Dual+Beam+Detector&qid=1660510789&sprefix=external+dual+beam+detector%2Caps%2C47&sr=8-3 or sensors from gjd https://www.gjd.co.uk/products/opal-xl-gjd020/ you can get those wired or wireless we have used the wireless for years …. Work of a standard 9v battery with replacement of battery every 7 years ….. wireless range 100 meters

    Hi yes that is it BUT on install I would put an inline 2.5 amp fuse from the battery side (red)

    I selected this. Please confirm. The battery is 12V max charge voltage 14.4 load cut off voltage 12.2v https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06Y5JHZG2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Thank you, I understand, also my idea was to avoid the alarm sensors for the dogs and the idea of detection would be at night since there are always people during the day. Maybe try one of the recorders I sent earlier and some outside alarm sensor. I don't know if the active deterrence camera model I sent will work with any of the recorders.

    Hi your looking at HD analog the cheap system is restricted to only 1 channel I would look for a recorder with alarm inputs much more reliable as alarms built into camera are very unreliable unless recorder has scheduled setup where recorder can change settings from day to night operation setting up a camera for day is not the same as night

    Hi yes the simplest way is a voltage regulator and connect dvr and camera to regulator output is this for home or vehicle

    Thank you we agree. But we cannot use 24v. is there any other device supply 12v. for example.Car DC 12V 4A Voltage Stabilizer Surge Protector Power Supply Regulator for Auto Truck Vehicle Boat Solar System etc.(DC10-36V Input, DC12V Output)

    Thank you very much for the reply. I am between the following models XVR5108H-I and XVR5108HS-I3, maybe I will decide with the I3 that is cheaper. Since neither of them has an alarm output, I had thought of installing a ME1509THP-A-PV camera to trigger a zone in the alarm system. Can you give me problems with those products? Another question is whether the effectiveness of the detection depends on the quality of the cameras (hd, fhd, etc)? Sorry for my english, i use a translator.

    Hikvision remote viewing "no permission"

    Yes! I have got the solution of this problem... Its solution is check your username and password. You must confirm this there is no space at the end of username or password. After try this you are facing again you send email to me. Thanks shaban6833831@gmail.com

    Most charge controllers do not output exactly 12v, as you have said. This is where you would use a 24v solar system and a voltage regulator device set to output 12v. Using a 12v regulator device on a 12v solar system can be done, but it will turn off if the input voltage drops below a threshold, e.g. 12.5v (refer to the specifications). The input on these regulators always has to be higher than the output voltage.

    Different brands have their own names for smart detection algorithms. SMD and Wizsense (a Dahua brand term) have some differences. SMD is a step up from standard motion detection, to 'Smart Motion Detection'. Wizsence is for analytics like Trip wire, intrusion, etc. For most people, SMD is enough. It just detects if there is a person/vehicle moving within the video. Wizsence is detecting a person/vehicle moving past a certain boundary or entering/exiting an area. The main term for this is 'IVS rules'. Hikvision has their version of Wizsence called 'Acusense'.

    Connecting Control Box To Router

    Hi tony yes a very easy way ….. if you look on Amazon for TP-LINK AV1000 POWERLINE STARTER KIT this is a 5 minute setup
  23. Hi, I am looking at purchasing a home CCTV system but my router is in very hard to get to place with regards to running a LAN cable to it. Is there an alternative way in which I can connect the system to my router so I can view the video stream via an app? Many thanks in advance Tony
  24. Good morning, I am new to the forum, I have to buy a CCTV system and I want the system to notify me by phone if someone enters the patio, but not to give me false alarms due to the dogs. It would have to be mid-range since I can't spend excessively. I was doing some research on the subject of wizsense, SMD plus, acusense, AI, etc. but I'm still not very clear about choosing one. What can you recommend or what system can be more effective? Thanks a lot

    Need to run CCTV DVR and camera on 12v battery can I connect the DVR and camera ( both marked as 12v) directly to a charge controller my issue is when the battery is fully charged the battery/charge controller voltage is 14.4v and when the sun is up has damaged my DVR during this time. Connecting to the battery directly works but i have no control over the DVR draining the lead acid battery
  26. Thanks for the answer. I need to be more clear. I need to use wi-fi as failover connection because the ethernet link between camera and NVR is via powerline. So if the powerline goes down for eletricity fault the camera should detect the ethernet link is down an should try to connect to the router via W-Fi. Obviusly the camera is backed up with a battery and the router, DVR/NVR, VPN concentrator are backed up with an UPS
  27. Hi it would be pointless if you think about it Wi-Fi is local and would need to connect to a router for any remote access ethernet works the same if the link goes it’s also gone from router …… recorder with built in Poe……. Does not matter if network is down it still works
  28. Hi the Mac is assigned to the dvr ….. two things can stop it working second hand purchase this means it has already been assigned to a cloud service ….. you would need the last owner login details to be able to change second a clone system ….. also where the Mac has been used by another recorder quick fix ….. don’t use the cloud service (which technically is only P2P) as the cloud service on many cheap systems does not save footage for you use your recorders local iP and port forward it
