  2. Hi! the first congratulations on the forum. I have an ip camera that records videos on the sd card and via ftp to a server. Both sd and ftp record videos in .264 format. I have been able to visualize this format on the PC with a special player, but on Android I have searched a lot and found nothing. Anyone know any player for android where these .264 files can be viewed? Thank you very much

    Hikvision ptz

    Hi guys In the market for a outdoor ptz camera , for a large unlit area . Have vehicles parked potentially 150-300ft away from the camera point so what would you guys recommend for viewing at this distance and how will image quality be at dark with no lighting on site ? Which hikvision ptz would be best suited , budget is about €800 can go a little more if it’s worth it for quality Would love to see some screenshots if anyone fitted a ptz with the similar situation and zooming in on a far away area at dark hours

    IP VS HDTVI/HDCVI/AHD

    i thought hdtvi/hdcvi/ahd were all analogue. there is a new one out or maybe not so new, EX-SDI the cameras are quite pricey.
  8. Hi. Don’t use a 3rd party cloud you will save a lot of money installing your own and hiding it take a look at the WD cloud unit. It will do what you want and also other benefits like photos / video / music storage from your other devices

  15. try upgrading the ptz camera firmware via cloud upgrade
  16. Indoor is ok, basically a babycam situation monitoring sonebody who is bed-bound. BI not such a problem, but IP Cam Viewer seems more particular. Has anybody used something that delivers sound through both apps?

    Which of these 2 Systems to go for?

    Its disappointing to see no responses on this. I have been debating the same thing. The colorvu technology seems nice but motion seems to blur the colorvu image and the 8mp with IR seems to be pretty sharp at night despite black and white. I feel as though sacrificing daytime mp quality and nighttime motion is not worth color at night time. Whats everyones thoughts?

    Waves on monitor

    This is a power issue?
  19. What is your suggestion... Using video power balun with rj45 or using passive balun with power connector?
  20. Using ferrules at the end for the passive balun so the wire don't gettin lose or cut is a good idea?

    A CALL FOR HELP !!!!!!!!

    Many thanks for replying @Tomcctv, I opted for that because of the cable route. The cable was to go through a dry gutter, which required a solid cable for wiring but i made a mistake of using the cat 6 for such a distance. I tried powering them from another close power source with a different cable but it still gives same output. Answer~Each cat6 cable hosts 1 camera to the DVR I need a sure solution that will save me changing of the cables to save me huge loss.

    Hi. Two problems stand out from the start. First is your cat cable stranded cat6 should not be used for that distance only for patch or locations that may have movement...... also you can’t clip stranded cat6 other is power cable over that distance 0.75 or 1mm would be better how many cameras do you have on each cat6
  24. Hi guys, my name is SAMUEL. Am CCTV installer based in Nigeria. i love what is going on here and most testify that your articles and discussions had being of great help to me at different points in the course of my work. Am here today because of a lingering challenge that i have had in one of my project sites. The challenge has taken money,time,energy,sleep and lots from me for over 4 months now. CHALLENGE I hosted 32 Dahua cameras on a Dahua 32 channel DVR using 8mp video Balun, 0.5 flex power cable and cat6 outdoor shredded cable(pure copper). The long distant lines are powered with 30 amps power supply box,the longest in distance is about 400meters and I have about 3 joints on each line, which i used RJ45 connectors to continue the line. After installation i discovered that we have about 6 cameras which happen to be the longest cables of about 400meters not displaying well like the the others. ACTIONS TAKEN I ordered for 4k video balun and its yet to give me a good display. I checked power line and the output is perfect enough to carry the cameras. I have tried 5amps power supply and its still not working. instead of the rj45 connector i used at the joints, i have tried using 8mp video balun for all the joints and its still not giving a good display I tried another model of cameras on the same line, like hikvision came up better but not as the other 26 cameras, hilook was not close to the hikvision camera. I AM IN DEAR NEED OF ANSWER OR SOLUTIONS TO HELP CLEAR THIS CHALLENGE AND TIME IS NOT ON MY SIDE AGAIN TO DELIVER THE PROJECT !!!!!!.
