    That is not a 360 camera. And if you think that cheap crap is better than IP for $100 then your wrong. table top cameras are pointless. People need to think and reaserch what they need. table top cameras can not see who comes to your door.... Can't detected any damage to cars outside......can not see if damage don't to gardens of home exterior and that table top camera for $28. What about in home privacy. Why have a camera in your home living room that footage and sound goes off to a 3rd party could be 100s of strangers watching you in your own home day and night so is $28 home security .....NO. STAY AWAY FROM CHEAP GEEK CRAP

    I bought Dahua DH-IPC-HFW1320S IP camera on eBay, and I have problem setting up FTP upload of recordings to FTP server. Here are my settings: For remote directory I used "/", "/test", "test" or leave blank and results are always same. This log entries shows that motion detection was triggered For first I used ftp server on internet, later I started filezilla ftp server on my pc. This is log form FileZilla FTP server.

So, communication is ok, camera can access and login to ftp server, but why that camera wont upload anything? I also tested NAS as storage, and everything that I got is that camera can create folder on NAS. What can be wrong here?

    Hi Folks, I forgot admin password of Hikvision dvr. Could anybody please help me with this I am using Hikvision 2 series DVR. Thanks

    Hi. It depends on which nvr you are going to use . It needs to be compatible some nvrs are only 2mp recording some are 5mp or 4k

    As far as I understand, FreePBX is simply a project adding a working webIf to asterisk. So everything should work as it does with a base asterisk. I run a asterisk on raspbian, no special version, just the stuff that you get with apt-get.

    Hi. No need to take anything down .....your network is only used for remote viewing with only using two 5mp your ok but I would look at adding later 4mp and even 2mp is small areas or you will need to drop FPS also remember you can use any tvi camera or 4 in 1 camera does not need to be hikvision if you have not bought anything yet I would pic TVT over hikvision security industry had another report yesterday on hik hack

    Hi either use ip cameras or get yourself a capture card and use analog .....analog is out of date so I would look at ip cameras. but a nvr is always better

    There are two ways to go about this: Find the output current rating on the power supply (I assume the Lorex NVR powers the cameras?) and multiply that by its output voltage. That will give you its approximate max wattage. UPS' are rated in VA (volt-amps), but it'll be close enough. The other way is to actually measure the current draw on the AC side using a true RMS ammeter. (That's the best way.) Then multiply the measured current draw times the line voltage. Next you have to determine whether the point is to protect your surveillance system and allow it to survive short-term outages, or to have it stay up for an extended time when there's an outage. (I note you list a "12V 10" PSU. If that's 12V at 10A, which would probably be about right for an 8-camera system [assuming about 15W/camera], then your want a minimum 120VA UPS. Depending upon the design, that may give you anywhere from 5-10 minutes of uptime [SWAG]). To a degree you can extend uptime by going with a higher-than-recommend-VA UPS, but there are diminishing returns with each bump in VA capacity. Reason is reduced efficiencies as UPS VA capacity goes up. For truly extended runtime you need an "extended runtime" UPS. They don't have greater VA capacity, but more battery. (They also take longer to recover because there's more battery capacity to charge back up. There ain't no free lunches.) E.g.: With a 120W load, a 120VA UPS may give you about 5-10 minutes of uptime, but a 360VA UPS won't necessarily give you 15-30 minutes. In fact: My old power-hog Dell 1600SC server had a 700VA APC SmartUPS on it. The computer + peripherals drew about 200W. The UPS had a runtime of only fifteen minutes with brand new batteries. Speaking of batteries: Make sure to buy a UPS with user-replaceable batteries. They have about a three-year lifespan. Also: Get in the habit of doing run-time tests about every quarter or so, to extend battery life. The UPS manufacturer should have a chart listing estimated run times for each of their UPS' vs. expected loads.

    Any time you allow Internet access to anything the threat level goes from "very little" to "a lot," regardless of what you try to do to mitigate it. For starters: Login access to your router from the Internet should be entirely prohibited. Period. Incoming connections should be on a "that which is not explicitly allowed is denied" basis. Proper, explicit port-forwarding rules should see to that. Default accounts should be disabled. Or at least have passwords or pass phrases so incredibly long and complicated they might as well be. If login access has any "break in attempt" detection, that can temporarily blacklist source addresses that get an account i.d. and/or password wrong "X number of times in time T," that will tend to slow attackers down so badly the likelihood of success is vanishingly low. Regarding LAN security: It's wise, when possible, to use VLANs and isolate IoT devices to their own VLANs. Also: If IoT devices do not need access to the Internet (e.g.: cameras talking to a local NVR have no need to swap spit with anything on the Internet, other than to occasionally check for firmware updates), they should be prohibited from doing so, either by putting them on their own network segments, using VLANs that don't have access to the Internet gateway, or by blocking them at the gateway. (VLANs enforced by managed Ethernet switches are more secure than border-router blocking. Separate LANs, isolated with internal routers are even more secure.) Lastly: You have to put it in perspective. Unless you're a bank, government entity or some other high-value target: Odds are anybody taking a shot at you is just what we call "knob-twisting" in the I.T. security field. They'll get in if they can, but it's unlikely anybody will mount a concerted attack against you. You're probably at greater risk from what you receive in email and what you browse with your web browser than you are with your NVR and cameras.

    I uploaded it here: VTO+VTH multilingual firmware I hope the "chinese-portuguese" is better than the "chinese-german"... If you don't like the sounds in your language, you either step back to an old SIP firmware as I did (where you are still able to personalize every sound file!) or you wait for a working V4 firmware, where you are at least able to deactivate the sounds. Too bad, that dahua does not implement a "sound" upload option. I guess, this would not be hard to implement but it would make this little device the only one on the market with such options.

    Hi. That all makes sense yes i would go IP system just put rj45 plugs on end of your cat5 and plug direct into nvr recorder .... no need for power supplies what is your budget ? also what computer system do you use windows or Mac

    We’re are you located dvr or nvr they are both standalone under staires ...... is this like a open plan some recorders give off a little noise so something to think about

    Hi. It is a mine field ... that’s the problem with online systems and prices are all over the place. a 4 way nvr recorder with 4 x 5mp cameras is £300 cheaper than your quote and is uk based and uk cloud service

    Tom, it's clear you were wasting your time with this one from the start. He already knows everything there is to know about everything. Just ask him, he'll tell you so

    There are a lot of forums and only you seem to have the problem. But now you have explained a bit more about your problem people can start to work it out. Which NVR are you using ? Who installed the hard drive What is your pre and post set at. On your schedule what alerts have you set. On your playback screen what colours show in time line.

    Hi. Hight limitations used to be a problem with old D1 res cameras. And got a little better with 1080p. Hight of the camera took away its viewing distance. This is not the case now with 4K as you have more detail at distance. I.E. Camera 8ft high and a person under it you only get top of head shot with old D1 you would not even get a face shot if person was 20ft from camera....... But with 4K a persons face can be detected over 40ft away ...... Mask area sends digital signal to recorder .....it would show up as sensor trigger in playback. Lorex manuals don't explain much ......so you are better looking as the dahua specs as your camera is 100% dahua

    Hi I've got a Dahua IP cam & I need to change the logo that appears while I access through a web interface? Is that possible if I choose to change it from firmware file (the bin file)?

    Problem solved! The daughter bought the same style camera with WiFi and her new boyfriend put up a pole made out of 1 3/4" plastic pipe. He mounted the camera to treated wood and attached it to the pole and placed it right next to the neighbor's camera but in my yard. Now she can't see his camera from the window and she has a great view of his rear patio. Haven't heard a peep from him yet. Nothing illegal and nobody got hurt!

    I got the same error, but everything local. I got one PC and one camera. Downloaded latest iVMS 4200 (2.4.xxx). Installed storage server and format a drive. Motion detection alarms works fine, but I can´t play the recorded. Probably nothing is recorded at all. Can´t understand how to configure this software that seems to be powerful, but a nightmare to config. Thanks, Magnus

    Well I need to know the model number from the DVR to see if you can use it or if you will need to replace all of your DVRs with a unit that can support dual recording or remote backup.

    We have had our units damaged and stolen bNHy burglars in the past. We want to be able to watch the break ins from remote locations. Security cabinets have not worked. In fact, at one store they actually took an atm machine that was mounted to the floor. Hiding the dvr wont work, because employees have been involved in the robberies and knew where to look. My boss wants remote recording. He is not going to be happy until he gets it.

    Why do you want to do this? Why not just pull recorded video from the remote site when you need to review recorded video? This also depends on the capability of your DVRs. I have systems the you can do dual recording to two different system and they can also off load video at schedule times. Streaming continuously 47 DVR's over web will take a lot of bandwidth. Each site will be X amount of upload bandwidth and then the headend will need (X * number of sites) download bandwidth. This will not be cheap.
