  8. Hi. You would just be wasting your time …. 420 tvl systems finished years ago it would be cheaper to buy a new dvr you can’t burn off to a usable method no internet connection submitting CD to law enforcement is not an option used anymore
  9. Hi it is possible but you will need an encoder which will cost a few 100 so it’s cheaper to just buy another iP camera instead us you willl need the cost of a power supply for your analog camera
  10. Hello, I am dusting off an old workhorse of a security DVR, a GE Storesafe Pro II, aka SDVR-4-80. The old harddrive has died and taken the DVR's operating software with it. I understand that the manufacturer (Interlogix) has gone out of business, however, this site seems to have the operating software (firmware?) to install on the replacement hard drive. https://www.dvraid.com/dvr-firmware/interlogix-firmware-software-tools-download/ I have seen and noted this discussion: " If you are stuck with no way forward then maybe its worth a try. It involves opening up the DVR, disconnecting the hard drives cables, connecting to your PC via USB. See what is on the drives, save a copy of the firmware to your PC drive (except video files). In my case I had a brand new drive & had to: -- format to FAT32, but I suppose you would just need to delete files. -- download the required firmware -- unzip & copy to the primary drive. -- Remove PC cables, reconnect & boot up. WARNING - this is not a recommended method for GE DVR's, only a personal suggestion for more research along these lines to be used only as a last & final resort once all other avenues have been followed." https://www.cctvforum.com/topic/16271-storesafe-pro-ii-firmware-issue/ I may have to go with this method, as I do not profess expertise in the inner workings of these systems. If anyone can confirm this method, or suggest a better one, please respond. My secondary question is, the best firmware package to copy to the SDVR's harddrive itself. As noted above, this DVR is a 4-camera system, and the firmware offered on the DVRaid website was this: StoreSafe_ProII-04_V6_32.zip My thanks in advance for installation instructions.

    Have you guys ever wondered where these panels come from? Here is an interesting article on this topic. I will leave the link here

    I also recommend reading this article about conventional inverters. Find out how they work here

    One of the most useful devices are microinverters. They are connected directly to each panel. There are many different kinds of microinverters at the moment. Here's an article on the subject here - https://www.impressiveinteriordesign.com/tips-on-choosing-the-right-microinverter-for-solar-panels/

    hola pudiste solucionarlo, estoy buscando lo mismo para el mismo problema
  15. Hello and thanks for letting me join! I have a Swann PoE CCTV system which utilises RJ45 connections at both cable ends to connect cameras to its NVR. I've purchased a dome camera, which comes with standard BNC connections (Yellow Video & Red Power plugs)... how do I connect this to my NVR? I don't have a separate power adapter for the dome camera, so assume that the NVR will supply the necessary power, as it does for the Swann bullet cameras that were supplied with the system. Many thanks, in advance. RIFF.
  16. True to that. Plug a standard router into the camera and use a power bank, then connect your phone to the WiFi from the router. It will be as if the camera is connected 'normally' to a network.
  17. Hi. Not going to work just wasting your money…… your note 10 has no way of converting the data to get video….. you would also need the manufacturers app you can get the image that way but only over a network either buy a dedicated iP camera tester …. Which will also power your cameras over Poe or use an old net gear wireless router and a power pack and the app that supports the camera a iP camera is data out ….. don’t get confused with video out

    Use smartphone to testing IP CAMERA

    I'll try it on my samsung galaxy note10 plus, and about power supply maby use powerbank 12v cable. I'll give the result after trying it . This tools I was ordering for my project.
  19. My research last night led me to that conclusion, that you need a light on permanently at night. I was looking at the Reolink bullet camera which comes in at £72, doesn't look as good as dome but they seem to do the trick. Sounds like I need that permanent light given the lack of lighting I have here. The camera being visible isn't really an issue. It's going to be visible regardless and my neighbour already has those top Hikvisions fitted so prompt anyone to look at mine. They'll be fitted at a reasonable height anyway... The build is a pretty straight forward rectangular building with no trees. The only hiding place currently will be the cars .. which is why l was thinking of one pointing back down the side of the house and one on the garage pointing out.
  20. Theoretically an Ethernet to USB adaptor should work. Configuring the network adaptor on a computer and plugging an IP camera in works. I don't know what it would involve to host a network adaptor and change it's settings. I do guess that the phone will require 'USB on the go' support.
  21. Hi any resolution 2-3-6-8mp can be colour but the more resolution the less effective it is. hikvision have there own data stream H265+ for the iP cameras and once at 6 or 8mp they recommend switching to h265 or h264 ….. h265 is standard in the industry h265+ is hikvision down …. Yet there own cameras proform badly yes you want colour at night ….. no camera will do this for you all cameras like starlight and colour view need a light source the one you have listed has white light built in and must be on all the time at night which gives your camera location away from the start. if you have seen the uk videos you will notice in one of them ….. light is always on at the back of the camera (shadows of trees in pictures) which are behind the camera so the video is very misleading they don’t work in complete darkness
  22. I was aiming more for colour night vision - 4k seems to be the standard for that? Two things in my mind, future proofing and making sure I get the best possible night vision, as this is most likely the time when I need the detail. I can't see a TVT cam with colour night vision.. and the UK suppliers seem very thin on the ground. Do you know if they offer the colour NV? It'll only be 4 cameras. One on the front of the property covering the dark private road which has no Street lamps, down the side of the house covering the cars and garage, rear of the property and maybe another on the far end of the garage looking outward. The front door is covered with a ring pro 2, so not needed there...

    Please HELP! Cameras stuck in CVBS mode

    Thanks for the response. Catch 22 indeed! Finally managed to track down the CCTV guy who installed it.
  24. Hi , I need setups to using my smartphone to testing and adjusting ip camera when installing without NVR? I heard can do by ethernet usb adapter to connect with smartphone!! It's working this way ?? Please advise me the correct way .
  25. Hi with the part number ….. that is a very expensive fixed lens 4k camera trade prices between £140 and £190….. that is just not worth it. The cost reflects its Ai ability which is pointless for home use….. and also not for commercial….. in uk it can’t be installed in public systems or government locations take a look at TVT much better than hik also one of the best system app that gives you full control over your system remotely also do you need 4K in all your locations …. Same with audio ….. as both will eat your storage up if 4K and audio on every channel how many cameras are you looking at installing Yes your absolutely right lan connection for router connect for remote viewing or logging in with a pc local I am also in the uk
  26. Thanks again Tom So what we're talking about is using the NVR and plugging all cameras into that. The line into the Lan therefore is purely for router connection for mobile app access? Hence why it doesn't use much bandwidth. Am I on the right track? So the cat6 for the monitor can carry the video and mouse function on one cable? That's a part Hikvision code from their latest cameras. HIKVISION 8MP COLORVU ACUSENSE 2.8MM LENS TURRET CAMERA WITH BUILT IN MIC DS-2CD2387G2-LU . I'm based in the UK and open to looking at anything really. Thanks, Tim
  27. Hi running data over your home network can slow your network down and 4K will 4k nvr POE will not …. As far as networking nvr or alarm …. Use existing lan for nvr and use a tp-link network plugs for alarm (lan over existing house electrics) much cheaper than using switches Not over your network but you can run a cat6 from nvr to main tv and use hdmi adapter for video and mouse control Hikvision is only well known because mass sold by everyone and also China copies… there software is old and they also did a firmware update 8 days ago to incorporate Ai which hik store …… but I already see a problem ….. the camera you list is not a hikvision part number so your buying from unauthorised dealer it depends on your budget and where your based
