    Dahua Wizsense confusion

    Hi again. When you talk about "Data" you mean face recognition? Because I don't use that and I don't think I am going to. I also thought that the face database was local. Isn't it? My system cost me about 500 dollars. DAHUA XVR5116HS-I2 + 5 cameras for now + some cables + adapters and more. I am adding 3 more next month. Could you please explain to me a little bit more about the part of "the recorders network" ? I never used ethernet/internet on my previous dahua XVR but now I thought I would start to. Why should we shut it down / cut the connection when in home? Thank you.

    Dahua Wizsense confusion

    Hi. Yes the system is good …. However the data protection is not for everyone that visits your home ……. You can’t control that side of your system dahua does i tell people now to have a switch that allows you to turn off your recorders network while your home and only switch network on when your home is empty if you have not installed it yet I would hold off as you can’t send it back once used dahua sent me some kit offers $125 for recorder and 10 cameras …. That’s a reduction of $600 on same kit last month most countries are still waiting for the ban result

    Looking for camera suggestions

    I can recommend: YI 93010 camera: It has a 360° viewing system. It offers a live video at 1080P and 20FPS, with both horizontal and vertical rotation and works with remote control. Wansview Q6 camera: It allows to have a very sharp and high quality image with a 1080P resolution. It rotates 350° horizontally, and can be tilted 90° vertically. It is equipped with 4 infrared lights so you can have a night vision. ___________________________________________________________ I own the Home Security company / I have a camera circuit throughout my business.

    Dahua Wizsense confusion

    Waste? Omg... Well I bought a DAHUA XVR5116HS-I2 a few hours ago along with 5 cameras and other tools for the setup. I am upgrading btw. My system so far - not thanks to dahua - but due to its existence has helped me in a few cases that people stole things from my yard. So yeah... If half of false alarms work I will be happy enough. I might post here or in a new post my thoughts after a couple of months. Thank you.

    Dahua Wizsense confusion

    Hi. Yes you need a analytics camera and if recorder which attributes your looking for but if your looking at buying wizsense (Ai) I would not buy just yet ….you could be wasting your money
  9. Hi forum, as a follow up to my previous post that hasn't been answered (here) I keep trying to understand a few things about Dahua and their Wizsense system. Reading this page doesn't really clear all the terms how / if / when and why some characteristics are in a device or not. (too many terms god). According to their product selector Wizsense can be found in: IP cameras - XVR Recorders -NVR Recorders. 1. MUST I use an IP Camera to have a "Wizsense" or not? 2. Can I have an XVR Wizsense used with a camera that does not have Wizsense? 3. My thought is that: (tell me if this is correct please) IP cameras with Wizsense integrated > use with any NVR without Wizsense integrated. XVR/NVR recorders with Wizsense integrated > use with any camera without Wizsense integrated. Please someone my head is about to explode. 😩 Thank you.
  10. No, no SD card. Seems like the Beta version of CMS Lite fixed some problems with the greyed out motion button, but the videos are not saved on the local hard drive though. I can see the motion notification and it's beeing recorded, but no file are created.
  11. Hi are you using the SD card for recording ?
  12. Hi guys. Nice to find this place since i have some problems with my Avtech AVM5547. I recently recieved it for free so i mounted it at home, and even if it's old, i kinda like it except the UI So, on to the problem. I can't get the motion record to work properly. First i tried with the motion record via the UI which later on uploaded the recorded files to my server. But the video files are always divided into xx smaller files. Let's say someone are walking by the camera in 5 sec. That result in 15 smaller .vid files that are impossible to play in any video player (yes, even with Avtech own player) Later on i tried with the motion recorder in Avtech CMS Lite, but all the option under Trigger are grayed out (Motion, Alarm, Pir) This is were i'm at. Any suggestion?

  14. I got my new router and the net light on my dvr is still out?? Did I fry my network port. I'm going to try and run a cable from my router to my dvr to see if the cable was ruined.
  15. A tree at the side of my house where I had my fta antenna in, got hit by lightning. It fried my tvs, transformers, stereo and other equipment including only one port on my dvr (all others were ok). I simply switched the camera to a port I had free and it worked. Actually had one transformer putting out 7 vDC instead of 12. Simply changed it and it worked. However, it said that I have no network connected to my dvr. Did the network port if there is such a thing on my dvr get fried? I am getting a new router from my isp as I think the ports in the router were fried. What do you think happened? Did the ethernet cable get damaged? I don't want to switch that out.... Will know more when I replace the router.
  16. My 8 camera Lorex system is finally finished. Because of its remote location in a closet, I added a wireless mouse, wireless Ethernet for Internet, and wireless HDMI to my big TV in the family room. Works great. Just need to add a small ventilation fan to the data box cover and a battery backup.

    Choice of Audio Cable

    Hi Why are you running cable ….. you don’t need to feed cable
  18. I am about to install an Exvist 8.0Mp POE CCTV camera in our village hall to stream meeting to Youtube via RTMP protocol. I need to run a long audio cable from the microphone amplifier at the front of the hall to the camera at the other end as an audio feed and trying to decide on the best cable. I have looked at various cable types including pre-made with included 3.5mm jacks on each end to rolls of cable. The lead will run in some large timber boxing down the side of the room and will be adjacent data and mains cable so it really needs to be screened to reduce any pickup. I am looking on the well known auction site and equally well known large online retailer and there are various versions:- Cheaper single screen 2 core withf metalized pvc wrap, Single screened 2 core with copper woven braid Double screen 2 core flex with metalized foil and copper braid. Single screen Two core Balanced microphone with tinned copper braid In each case one end will be terminated in a 3.5mm stereo jack to go into the camera and a 6.3mm jack or XLR plug Trying to keep the price of install as low as possible but don't want problems with hum or pickup on audio so any advice would be appreciated.

    Custom view on DVRs

    Hey guys , So the problem is , i have 5 ip cameras lets name them for ease Cam1-2-3-4-5 i want to display the output to three led’s (locally) but the issue is , one from the three ouput shouldn’t show the cam5. so as per my understanding i need another XVR . how could i connect my secondary XVR to primary XVR , or if you guys have any better idea , im all ears . thanks
  22. >> Hi I don’t understand this part >> why using a patch panel Because the stupid cable installer ran the cables through a sawhole in the drywall instead of inside the data/comm box and left me about 12-15 inches of cable coming out of my closet wall when I specified three feet of slack inside. The cables wouldn't reach my NVR. His reply was "just put it on a shelf or something". Uh, no. The easiest solution for me was to hang a small $25 wall-mount 12-port punch-down panel and then use patch cables as long as I need to reach the NVR inside the data/comm box. I couldn't go up (higher) with the cables either because there was a ton of other wiring in that area (phone, TV coax, electrical). It's probably a network tech mentality rather than a IP security tech solution. Lol Btw, the installer also put the wrong data/comm box in (smaller), failed to install a spec'd outlet to power everything, and 3 of the outside runs were left with under 8 inches exposed under the soffits. These were all clearly spec'd out by me, but I missed it in the walkthrough when we first moved in. I've had a lot of fun fixing this guy's work. This is also probably why I immediately suspected bad cables instead of connectors. I figured he probably punched a staple through one somewhere. LOL. That's it. Dave
  23. Hello tomcctv and cctvdude88. Parsimony prevails. After properly installing three bad RJ45 connectors on one cable and two on the other, the conclusive cause was garbage chineseum connectors. I bought a pack of Klein connectors from HDepot, wired them in, and both cameras came alive. This, mind you, after both cables passed every test I threw at it. The connections must have been sitting on the border line of "works with the meter" and "fails miserably with the IP cameras". At least several big lessons learned here. All that's left to do is change out the remaining six RJ45 plugs so they don't fail on the day my cameras would have caught my killer in the act. Many thanks to everyone who helped. Your suggestions got me thinking when I was basically burned out and pointed me toward the problem. Have a great and blessed day everyone and thanks again. Dave in Trinity
  24. Hi I don’t understand this part why using a patch panel
  25. Hi. Yes. I wired everything 568B. I understand about the twists. I even made certain the patch panel ends were as short as possible from the twists (under 3/4", I believe is the spec if I recall). The cables are all under 100ft. The NVR has 8 ethernet ports. The POE and data are all coming from there to the 8 cams. I ran all the continuity checks and everything passed. I tested twisted pairs and individual wires in every possible configuration. No anomalies. I even attached an extra 50ft ethernet cable to the existing in-house cable just to 'stress it" a little. POE didn't change either. I didn't run tests the other direction. I patched in a cable from my router to the house wiring and connected my laptop. No internet. It's too creepy. UPDATE - sounds too simple to be true, but I'll let you know. I had my wife man my meter while I went on the side of the house and started a physical integrity test. in other words, I bent the cable, pulled on the RJ45 plug, stuffed the cable up inside the soffit, etc. Nothing changed. THEN, I ran the TDR function and it's now showing a problem in the 1/2 pair. Maybe, just maybe the plug is bad after all. Now, keep in mind, I've changed that plug probably 3 times now, but all the plugs are from the same batch from a cheap Amazon company. Yeah, I know. I'm going to run up to Lowes and pick up a different brand and try it again. This actually makes sense, so fingers crossed that I just got a marginally bad batch of plugs. If so, problem solved and I'll have to re-terminate every cam cable again (for the future). Thanks for your help so far. Greatly appreciate it. Geez, I'm glad this was for myself and not a client. I'd have lost my shirt on this one. Dave

    IP camera

    This may be down to what's called ONVIF compatibility. Pretty everything in the last 5 years should be ONVIF 2.4 compliant to work on other manufacturers' recorders but there is still a chance some out there wont meet this criteria. Some cameras however will appear not to work but in reality just need some manual programming. If you are using for example, a Hikvision IP camera on a Dahua recorder, you will first need to log directly into the camera using it's default IP address and enabled ONVIF. It may also require you to create an account on some cameras. From there, you would have to manually add the camera to the recorder, entering all the requested details the recorder asks for. If you are plugging the camera directly into the onboard POE of the recorder however, you will need to manually assign the camera an IP address in the switch range that the onboard POE gives out. Most Dahua units for example are 10.1.1.xx. So you will need to set your camera to an address in that range and then manually add it.
  27. Hi Dave, Is the CAT6 wired in T-568B standard? or are they random but the same at both ends? In CAT5/6, the pairs are twisted a different amount of times as you would know, and this becomes important for IP installation as when they are run a significant length they may drop off. Are the cameras run into their own individual POE ports on the NVR?
