    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

    Hi nothing wrong with your camera .... it just means it’s been plugged into the nvr and it’s already been given a ip long way around ..... but I don’t understand why a switch when all is needed is two small patch leads for future testing and getting to know your network I would recommend you buy a cheap tester will save you a lot of time and effort and money and it lets you know what cable is we’re https://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Ethernet-Accurately-Configurations-TC-NT2-x/dp/B0000AZK08

    It is confusing hikvision can’t keep anything simple ... hikvision turbo 4.0 is stated to be POC ... that is not the case when you look at specs .... take your model number HIKVISION DS-7204HUHI-K1 why do hikvision find it so hard to to simply add POC at the end HIKVISION DS-7204HUHI-K1 -POC same with the comparable cameras if you are installing your system coax with power (shotgun) is just the same as feeding coax and does not leave your system to being POC only poc systems you can’t use existing cameras if you have a problem you can only replace with POC proprietary systems are pointless and don’t stay on the market long

    Also note that the HUH can also take more additional IP cameras if desired. So the long and short of it is that the HUH is the more capable recorder.

    To add to this, that 12x Dahua zoom mentioned is really a varifocal camera. It is used during setup of the camera. The zoom is usually painfully slow. And bullet cameras attract spiders that spin a web right in front of the camera, setting off the motion detection. I am out probably three nights a week clearing webs from 2 bullet cameras. My 2 dome cameras have no problems with spiders. I keep them under a soffit and rarely have to clean water spots off, only after a very windy rain blows through. Eyeball or turret cameras are supposed to not have those problems.

    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?"

    Aside from NVR compatibility, when I did my research I found the low-light camera to beat is still the Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-ZE 2MP Starlight. Outdoor usage: Check. Good low-light performance: Check. PoE: Check. $100-$200 USD: Check. It's manual pan/tilt. It has motorized zoom. I'll be using mine with Synology NAS Surveillance Station software... maybe. (Their notification mechanism is currently thoroughly broken. If they don't get it fixed, I'll have to find another solution.) N.B.: I have not installed this camera yet. It's wintertime, here, and I don't feel like hacking on our vinyl soffits and crawling through the attic in sub-freezing temperatures, or tracking snow, slush and mud all over creation.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    No .... if you come on with camera awful then there has to be a reason. calibrating is done on the camera ... it’s done while installing does zoneminder do 4k yet ? does it do h265 ? RTSP ..... I think you will find onvif is the best way explain why you should defend h264 ? Are you using 4k Why ..... because you don’t like to hear that your cameras are not compatible with what you using with them. So your expecting 8mp/4k on equipment that can’t get you there You will need to load software for cam onto pc then go into settings .....being on zoneminder I would also drop resolution down to 4mp .... not 8. Then go into camera zoom and move far out then in and then set it to distance needed then click save

    Well that’s your problem........RTSP stream. Why are you messing around with VCL also no camera functions with zoneminder also running at wrong compression. its easy to blame the product....than to set it up right. and to give you a hint on not setup your images are nothing like 2mp never mind 8mp

    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.

    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.

    Hi. You only need to forward port 37777 and don’t portforward anything else. Also reload your app as another was released Thursday It does not matter re doing ports of passwords if you don’t also change your IP address. If you want someone to phone you at home you give them your telephone number It’s the same with your IP address it’s like the telephone to your Network once someone has it they can use it. A full router reset is also a good idea Which ddns service did you use ...... did you set it up ? Also check your PM I have sent you a message and you need to act on it

    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

    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

    I have to say that the standard of CCTV work I have experienced in the UK is very good in the main. I have learned a bit from remedial works, I have seen the way other's do things and in some cases I have changed the way I do things because I have seen a better way of doing something.
