    QVIS Pioneer Trio MK3 DVR and QVIS 5X-P400-VFG problem

    We have 4 DVRs. I'll download the Viper CMS and see if it'll work with the existing recorders Thanks for your advice

  5. Hi. Yes unfortunately a dvr is needed. if you had bought standard analog cameras then connecting them to a tv would work (as monitor view only) the cameras you have bought are a high def analog using a format called CVI cvi signal will not display on any tv without it going through a dvr with cvi - tvi -ahd you don’t need to buy just a lorex dvr just look for one with a spec of HD analog 5mp they are cheap
  6. I’ll start by saying that I’m completely ignorant of cctv equipment. Now you know. our shop bought Lorex C581-CB-Z cameras based solely on a friend’s recommendation. We have them installed to monitor shop equipment and naively thought we could simply plug the two cameras into two new TVs. How foolish. Lorex tells us that we have to have their DVR also. While I recognize them as the experts I also recognize this forum as a group of experts. is this correct or is there a quick (cheap) and dirty way to connect the Lorex camera to a regular TV with some sort of converter? Thanks in advance
  7. I got help from riogrande75 (thanks a lot by the way !) on the german forum, but I wanted to share the experience here as well. The new VTO2202F-P (or VTO4202F-P) is delivered with a firmware which is compatible with the SIP Server on the Fritzbox. It is now much easier to make the Fritz!Fon ring when someone rings the VTO (you just have to use the SIP server on the Fritzbox) However this is not working well with the VTH. It is possible to connect the VTH to the Fritzbox SIP Server (using some hack) but we still won't have any video this way. So either: use the VTO SIP Server and enjoy the full video experience with the VTH use the Fritzbox SIP Server and enjoy the voice experience with the Fritz!Fon, and forget about the VTH It seems to be possible to have both, but then we have to use an Asterix server and given the report from this thread, it seems to be quite challenging. Has anyone succeeded in having working Fritz!Fon and VTH (including video) ?

    Yes, I understand that the Viper would be of benefit but do you know if I could run all the DVRs (Pioneer and Viper) with the Viper CMS? Its unlikely that I'll get the budget to upgrade all the DVRs at once and would rather not run 2 different CMS packages

    Analog camera issue

    Cat 5 pure copper is best. If you are going longer than 300metres then use Cat6. coaxial is good but can get expensive and also breaks easily if running far.
  12. Hi folks. Needed some help on fixing a ptz corner bracket to a industrial unit with metal cladding. The metal cladding is basically 2mm thick tin and below I’m not sure, from looking inside the unit it looks like it’s Breeze blocks. If any installer has any ideas of which fixings you’ve done send or can advise that would be great! I’m on the job tomorrow.

    Hi yes your right ... 4 in 1 viper will take all your cameras up to 5 mp PSS is a old software (dahua) the viper software and remote software is far better also take into account the viper is h265 which will double your storage

    QVIS Pioneer Trio MK3 DVR and QVIS 5X-P400-VFG problem

    I was only adding 2 additional cameras which takes the total on that DVR to 16 I still have time to return them and replace with the 4x-P400 which I think is 2.4mp or Upgrade the DVR as you say. I'd assume that the 5MP DVR would also allow the use of the 2.4MP existing cameras until they get upgraded too? Would it be safe to assume that the Viper would work with the SmartPSS monitoring software? Thanks tomcctv

    Hi. The problem is your recorder is not 5mp how many are you installing .... it might be better for you to upgrade your dvr to the viper
  16. Hi,We have several 16 channel QVIS Pioneer Trio MK3 DVRs with all attached cameras on AHD 1080p over shotgun cable.I recently bought a couple of QVIS 5X-P400-VFG cameras to add on but, with the camera set to AHD, I can get no stream coming to the channel from the camera.It does work on analogue but we don't want that.I know the DVR port & cable works with another camera.Wondering if there's an incompatibility with the DVR and the 5MP cameras but I've been unable to find any information on this.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks

    AVer IWH5000 Series - software CD

    But you can create a reboot usb from your system. the part I am not understanding is you saying start the system afresh. .... there is nothing to start fresh ..... it’s windows based with the software on the hard drive for the recorder (marked as master) on the hard drive. Software is not the same across the board 4-8-16-32-64 camera channels and also regional PAL or NTCS ... that makes 7 disks Well it does not matter to me ......it’s just the easiest way to change passwords

    I have said from the beginning that I want to use the software CD to create a 'recovery USB', as detailed in the manual. I want to create a recovery USB so that I can start the system afresh. I want to start the system afresh for various reasons. What am I supposed to be achieving by going into the windows side? What results are you expecting? Why does it matter what cameras I'm using? Why does it matter if my system is on the internet? I appreciate that you're trying to help me and I apologise if I appear to be getting shirty, but I don't understand the relevance of the questions you've asked or the suggestions you've made.

    You saying you want to add storage I have also asked you to go into windows side you have not given any results from that 100% your system came from me if your Manchester for 10 years I worked for them .. also do a check on forum search. so the same question is it the units password you need ..... what password are you using to get into settings? is your system on the internet

  24. hello ..I am looking for recommendations for a simple security camera that I can fix to the side of my house to capture 1 full year (continuous, non stop 24 hours a day for 365 days) surveillance of neighbor's activity, no panning or movement, a fixed spot ....I am pretty sure this would have to be AC powered, although I'd prefer battery .....but I am sure battery life hard to monitor if camera mounted on facia board up high .....any help, assist or recommendations highly appreciated, thank you
