    Hi I would keep testing simple ...remove camera and plug it into another location ..... if this is just a camera swap to start with it could just be the camera faulty are you using standard analog analog or HD ...... and have you got the right region camera PAL / NTCS

    Sorry just read your post again and seen Coax in the title. Check the termination switch/setting on the DVR if there is one! Using a voltmeter set to Ohms go to the camera and check the resistance of the coax cable as it goes back to the DVR, it should read 75 ohms plus the resistance of the cable so probably about 80 - 100 ohms depending on the cable length/quality. If you are reading in the M ohms range then the cable is un-terminated, or has possibly been damaged, next go to the DVR and remove the camera signal lead and measure the resistance of the video input this should be 75 ohms.

    if it is a fake you probably are stuck with the problem. I have used real Geo for years and have not encountered this particular problem but I never had any need to set pre record to more than a couple of seconds

    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

    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

    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.

    Ubiquiti is expensive and out of date. Plus remember you need to run along side a PC ..... It has no monitor output qvis uk sells well in Sweden...... And the viper NVR is one of the best on the market now. NVR is compatable 720p upto 4K so a long time before its out of date

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
