    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?

    What I did for a living once-upon-a-time was design software for machine vision inspection systems, so I know just a little >< about how photo imaging sensors work. And, yes, digital camera photography is one of my lesser side-hobbies, so I know something of how that technology works, too. You can insist that photographic cameras not be brought up, but that doesn't change the fact they use essentially the same technology and are guided by the same laws of physics (as we currently understand them). "your [sic] adding more pixels to the same area...": Bingo! And more pixels in the same area means the pixels must be smaller. QED. Tom, the pixel size directly relates to its light sensitivity. That's the whole point of this discussion. Provably false. (I've already explained why. I'm not going to repeat myself.) It is? Please show us the ™ or ® mark on Dahua's use of the term "starlight." Please show us where Dahua's technology licensees are acknowledging the use of Dahua's patented startlight technology. You cannot, because "starlight" is a generic term for imaging sensors and surveillance cameras that perform better than others in low-light conditions. This is evidenced, for example, in this Bosch press release: Bosch introduces latest starlight technology - The ultimate 24/7 IP video surveillance cameras just got even better, where "starlight" is mentioned with no attribution. And Dahua is using Sony STARVIS sensors, as demonstrated, for example, by Dahua DH-IPC-HDW5231R-ZE - 2MP WDR IR Eyeball Network Camera and other Dahua Starlight products which also prominently mention using Sony STARVIS technology. I'm not going to argue this with you any longer. I have design background, technology experience, facts and documentation on my side. You have beliefs based on what is apparently an incomplete understanding of the technology, which is now leading you to contradict yourself.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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. Rain or snow does not have to have contact with sensor. .... so just sensor under cover will not help I would forget trying to get a pir sensor to work at that distance. I would look at GJD wireless pir heads. Very reliable and last 4 years on one 9v standard battery Mount pir at your gate ..... set detection patern..... also control on and off and schedule from recorder http://www.gjd.co.uk/products/wireless-detectors

    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?

    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

    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 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

    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.
