    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.

    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.

    You're welcome. As for Blue Iris: I can't help you. I try to avoid MS-Windows. As for the "other forum": If it's the forum I think it is you'll notice they sell BI

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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)?

    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?

    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

    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

    A week ago, I bricked a IPC-HFW4300S-V2 after upgrading with standard firmware. I wound up RMA'ing it because I couldn't connect to the GUI. I didn't know I could recover it, even though my router could see it, but I'm glad cctv_007 is developing this info to help other people. From the information I've read on here, it sounds like the V2 inferior to the standard version, is this true?

    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
