  2. Hi. The easiest way is to buy a 4 in 1 camera they are the same price as a standard camera but there backward and forward compatible take a look on Amazon and post links on here before you buy
  3. Hi all My work had a system fitted a few years ago. Recently one of the cameras is showing 'No Video' on the display. The Hikvision DVR is working fine because 13 other cameras are all showing video OK. I have tried swapping the camera input (bayonet) cables to different ports at the back of the DVR and it is clear that the actual camera is faulty. There is power to the camera because when I cover the lens the ring of Infra-Red LEDs light up (and disappear when I move my hand). The camera is easily accessible and I want to swap it myself. All seems good up to here... So, I went on Google and typed in the model number (on the sticker at the rear of the cam) and there is literally no info on the cam. I typed it in the manufacturer's name and again I was stumped. Therefore, I would be grateful if (using the information provided below) somebody would suggest a camera that I can simply swap. The existing (faulty) cam is as follows: Manufacturer: Aveesa Model: AV1K-FXG Other Details: Vandalproof IR Dome Camera. Lens 3.6mm Board Lens. TVL: 1000TVL SONY CMOS. Power: DC12v/550 ma Connections: 1 Bayonet and one other push connector. The reason why I am asking you guys to suggest a camera for me is because I want to ensure that any replacement I buy has the same connectors, is IR and has at the very least equal picture quality and better if possible. Thanks for your help all.

  5. Hi. Neither honey or adi made the unit they just put there sticker on the front 2007 is your unit so they got that part right are you looking to use this unit as security ? can’t go on internet software playback (proprietary) only cif record
  6. I have a surveillance hrgx162 Ds80103 honeywell dvr. I do not have the admin password. I am unable to accomplish a factory reset because I am prompted immediately for user name and password before I can enter menu. I tried disconnecting the battery but no luck. There is no reset button or hole therefore only recourse is to start from scratch. Please help me in how I can wipe everything, factory reset, my dvr and go to the default admin password. All help is appreciated. Note: I called Honeywell technical support and they told me my dvr is too old and they cant help. They suggeated I call ADI and they would help. ADI told me they are a distribution center only and cant help. I am at a loss Another thought; would buying a new motherboard help. If so what would part number be?

    poe switch

    Hi. Switches have moved on a lot since that Cisco made. It’s used …. Low data ….. under powered i have been using BV switches for years and never had a problem pass through network sockets extender POE boost switch for longer cable runs also will run a ptz camera on one channel which the Cisco can’t do here is a link to a new Poe switch and much better for a few $s more https://www.ebay.com/itm/391928168402?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D231964%26meid%3Db9e4796b604e4d2e838e5949e6c5f97b%26pid%3D100935%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dgp%26sd%3D363381668937%26itm%3D391928168402%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2332490%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseUnbiasedWeb%26brand%3DBV-Tech&_trksid=p2332490.c100935.m2460

    poe switch

    Hi all, I was looking for a poe switch for just 3 cameras and saw this on ebay. Can anyone tell me if this is a good buy and if it will work with axis cameras? https://www.ebay.com/itm/363381668937 I am trying to use blue iris on a pc. Thanks
  12. ?? Well I am sure it is a T series and I am definitely powering the cam through the Ethernet cable...... Anyways I need a cable that is attached to the camera. 11 wire inside white waterproof ethernet jack with activity LED embedded and a separate but unused in my application 12 volt barrel plug. Looks like the attached photo.

    Old analog system upgrade

    Hi for a system that will do 4K cameras 8 way Poe nvr with 4 2mp cameras is around £410 to add another 4 cameras you need to workout if you want a camera with audio …. These are good for cameras at front door area i am only says 4 to start with because you need to check your cat5 cables from power unit installing yourself is easy but you need the tools and a network tester what I would do next is make up the cable ends and test them all to determine amount of cameras here are some tools you need https://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-network-cable-tester/93219 https://www.screwfix.com/p/rj45-crimping-tool-8-200mm/30318 https://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-rj45-8p-8c-connectors-100-pack/32033 wire diagram

    Thanks - that is exactly what I thought when I saw the system. Will probably install myself. Can you recommend cameras and POE IP recording unit?

    Old analog system upgrade

    Hi. Ok now all makes sense…. There is another box somewhere…….. which is joining coax to cat 5. Used to be called utp splitter this stop you using the coax that is connected to your vms box and also prevents you using HD analog without doing extra cable work. but the cat5 cable going to your power supply can be used and infact makes your job easier but you will have to install a ip system and not analog and this will also do away with that old power supply ………. Ip Poe systems don’t need extra power will you be installing your self ?

    Attached is a pic of the power supply without the cover - it does actually look like the cable to the power supply is cat5 not BNC. I have also attached a pick of the back of the VSM

    Old analog system upgrade

    Hi. Looking at your camera picture you have two cat5 connected its hard to try and sort out with photos can you also take cover off power supply and take a picture looking at what is posted ….. you have a 100ohm system ( which matched the age of the system ) you also have cables missing at the VSM location because your cameras show audio connection (old cameras would loop in out each cam) giving 1 audio channel At the moment using your existing cables is not a option let’s look in power supply

    The COAX is going into the power supply in the bottom left of the picture I uploaded above. Attached is a picture of how the CAT 5 is wired into the cameras

    I can’t see any coax in your picture going to power supply. camera end ..... how is cable connected to camera
  20. CCTV user

    Old analog system upgrade

    Yes at the camera end it is just the CAT 5. Two COAX cables for each camera disappear under the floorboards and must be joined to a single cat5 for each camera. The COAX are not joined together and one comes form the power supply and the other from the video switch.

    Old analog system upgrade

    So at the camera end you only have cat5 your coax is it two cables joined together?
  22. CCTV user

    Old analog system upgrade

    Thanks. Its home use. The COAX does not run as far at the cameras and is joined the CAT5 under the floor boards (both COAX cables for each camera must be joined to a single cat 5 cable for that camera). The cameras are then connected to the CAT5 which carries both the power and the video signal.

    Ok looks like coax to cameras ..... that power unit is a old alarm supply .... not powerful enough so that will also have to be changed Is this for home use or business

    Night time drop out?

    The psu wasnt part of a kit, was bought all separately at the distributor i use, it is however a 2amp psu. Ill get a 5amp see if that works any better.

    A pic of the cables going into the VMS and one of them going into the power supply.

    Old analog system upgrade

    Ok can you post a pick of cables into the vms and cables to power supply
  27. tomcctv

    Night time drop out?

    Hi. Yes sounds like you are right problem with kits is the power supply is too small ( if you look at your psu) it is likely to be a 2amp Also with using pigtails you only need 1 camera to have a fault and it affects the rest best type of power supply to use is separate channel power supply there not expensive

    Old analog system upgrade

    Thanks. Based in South East London. The key piece I don't understand is which cameras will connect to the CAT 5 cable but supply an analog signal.
