    Hi ..... and this also answers your other post problems .... ip addres is your problem .... none of your cameras or recorder can talk with your network. Is this a home or business network ? You will need to change the IP address on the ip cameras to match your network ..... I don’t know how many cameras you have but you need to give them a ip like this 192.168.50.21 for camera 1 192.168.50.22 for camera 2 and so on till you have changed all your cameras You will need to use a pc or laptop off your network and plug your cameras into laptop 1 at a time to change the IP address. Use a laptop if can ... not connected to any network .... but wright down its current settings so you can reset it back later to see the ip of each of your cameras change your laptop IP address https://kb.netgear.com/27476/How-to-set-a-static-IP-address-in-Windows in this instruction it is for 192.168.1.10 you need to set it to 192.168.0.10 amd the gateway to 192.168.0.1 then plug cameras 1 by 1 into laptop and change each ip from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.50.21 for cam 1 now you will see them on your network ..if this is not your own network ..... don’t do anything and talk to the it people ..... if it’s your network for home then your ok following these instructions

    Not banned outright until August 2019 then imports will be a problem They messed up last month ..... now homeowners are starting to see the security problems and being warned setting up for internet with there own passwords and usernames and one day logging on only to find someone else’s system one couple have found there home cctv system showing live on a website its not just a government problem it’s a homeowners problem which is worse security cctv should not involve a 3rd party

    I think you will find a proper firewall will protect LAN to LAN, WAN to LAN and LAN to WAN. Both inbound and outbound. As i said if data is exiting your highly secure network then i suggest its your exit point you look at. Your lack of knowledge regarding this shows how dangerous it is to have CCTV installers configuring networks without the proper background in networking and network security. And your welcome to have my IP information and logins if i felt the need to install them, However it would do you no good as my network would be secure with a properly configured, good quality firewall. You know the kind that actually can be deemed a firewall which protects all directions.

    I'm sorry, alpalp, but I do not have a recommendation for you. Some of the more experienced guys here I'm certain might have. A lot of people like BI. Maybe it's great. But I don't trust MS-Windows any further than I can spit, so I'll never know. If one of the Linux flavours is your thing, possibly Blue Cherry DVR? I may give that a go if things don't work out with Synology.

    First question: What are you trying to achieve? That will determine what kind of cameras you need and how many. Second question: Is there a particular reason you want an analog system, as opposed to IP cameras? Third question: What do you consider to be "average cost?"

    Yes that's right what will you be using the system for ...home or business use ?

    I have 16 cameras plus an IP camera in the pond on live only I use the ptzs linked to alarm sensors so when a PIR sensor triggers the ptz within the area will turn to the alarm area and home in on the part

    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 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

    Hi there, I just want to inform you in my case I do not receive anymore the notifications on my mobile phone (gDMSS Plus) when someone rings on the door. It looks to be a general issue Dahua must solve after Google has changed the push service , see reply from my vendor : This afternoon it has been revealed that Google has changed the push service for a number of Android versions and this has impact on a large part of the Android devices using IMOU or GDMSS. This implies that Dahua must solve it, just Dahua is currently celebrating Chinese New Year, which makes the solution just waiting a bit longer. Hope it can help you if you are in the same situation.

    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.

    That is not necessarily critical. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to tell you how to build a watch so you'll understand what I'm telling you when I tell you the time Residential power in the U.S. is nearly invariably what's called "split phase." 240VAC (nominal) single-phase power from a center-tapped transformer arrives at your distribution (aka: "breaker") panel. One side of that goes to one side of the panel, the other to the other side. The breaker boxes are designed such that every other breaker on each side is on the same side of the split phase. Let's call them "L1" and "L2". (Because that's how they're actually labelled ;).) Between L1 or L2 and neutral is 120VAC. Between L1 and L2 is 240VAC. 120VAC breakers connect only to L1 or L2, and neutral is used for the "return." 240VAC breakers connect to both L1 and L2. (Either one could be said to be the supply or return. Supply/return really doesn't apply to L1/L2.) Where powerline Ethernet adaptors (and a lot of powerline home automation gear, such as X10) run into trouble is when one node is on L1/neutral and the other is on L2/neutral. The signals often don't make it across very well. With that, now, perhaps, you'll understand this: That your garage has or will have it's own breaker panel isn't quite as critical as which side of the split phase power each adaptor ends-up on. And, with this and my explanation of how a WiFi bridge might work for you, now perhaps you'll understand why I earlier wrote that either WiFi or powerline will work better, depending upon the particular site.

    Hi, I uploaded to the most recent version I could find, I managed to upload directly and didn't need any intermidiate firmware. Sorry I don't remember which site I downlaoded from.

    Hello all. I'm an electronics tech looking for a video recording system to order either as an all in one system or piecing together the right components to make my own. I wanted to introduce myself since I'm new here and was doing some research for a system for our research dept. I'm looking to present 3 options: a barebone system, something in the middle, and a high end system. As far as the system goes, I am looking for the following: At least 4 Cameras High Resolution Great Zoom (Cameras will be mounted on top of a mast from as far as 10' or closer, but need to be able to have really good focus) One with a HDD The ability to network the system for remote access Durability (It's going to reside in an industrial environment) Remote focusing would be a plus Thanks for any help or routing me in the right direction.

    I can't answer any questions about how many cameras you'll be able to view at once, because I'm relatively new to video surveillance gear, myself, and it'll depend upon your software in any event. But, as a retired Systems, Network & TelCom Admin with over 25 years experience building and maintaining networks (LANs, WANs, WLANs) for a living I'm going to suggest cameras <-> switch <-> powerline <-> router <-> powerline <-> NVR is probably not going to result in a happy outcome. First of all, powerline adaptors have highly variable performance, depending upon a variety of unpredictable factors. At the very least I'd obtain a pair and do network bandwidth, latency and error rate tests between Point A and Point B, then Point B and Point C before proceeding. I'd be surprised if you got sufficient low-error-rate bandwidth to support eight video streams. Secondly: It has been my experience that most routers (and I'm making the assumption you probably have either a common consumer-grade or cable company device) tend to be sub-optimal as network switches. Particularly common WiFi routers. In my opinion, based on experience: Switches to switch, routers to route, and WiFi access points to provide wireless access. Avoid WiFi and powerline where wired is feasible. As to WiFi vs. powerline: Whichever works best, which is highly site-dependant.

    Just an FYI, I took the risk and gave it a try, and I can confirm that V3.4.96 works with CH cams (V5.2.0).

    Boogieman, this is Dahua , not Hikvision! I suggest upgrading firmware to the latest version, setting strong passwords (mix uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters) and changing ports. Works on Hikvision, hope it works on Dahua too. This happens on systems running with default passwords and ports, no special backdoor needed. Newer versions of Hikvision firmwares do not allow simple passwords, and that's it.

    Cheers Tomcctv much appreciated I use no-ip and set it up myself Someone advised I set up a vpn but don't know how much money and effort required. Do i need to update firmware on cameras as well as the apollo?
  23. 1 point
    I don't know about re-loading the firmware, but if you need to re-set the passwords, you can use the clearparam command as described in the opening post. telnet into the camera, then type /sbin/clearparam This will do a 'factory reset' for all of the camera parameters - it will clear any user accounts that you may have created, and it will restore the camera default settings (passwords, ip addresses, overlays, etc). When I ran this the process seemed to hang (as it has changed the camera ip address, and so the telnet session was mangled). But after waiting for the camera to re-appear as 192.168.1.108 I was able to access the GUI using admin and the default admin password. -- Chris Unfortunately, since I changed the Admin account password to a password I cannot recall, I can't enter the SSH/Telnet area to run the /sbin/clearparam command... -EP

    Forget the ryobi if you want to get your work done with tools that can handle it, not ones that are for light duty homeowner stuff. I have 98% makita....here is a link to the vac (yes, they do have one) i have it and it's great...they have either vac only, if you already own makita battery and charger or they sell full kit... http://www.amazon.com/Makita-BCL180W-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless/dp/B0039ITKLU Check out this pic of my enclosed work trailer....2 shelves of mostly makita power tools (cordless)...also have some corded sds drills and what not, not in this pic.. You can see the vac in this pic though
