    That is not a 360 camera. And if you think that cheap crap is better than IP for $100 then your wrong. table top cameras are pointless. People need to think and reaserch what they need. table top cameras can not see who comes to your door.... Can't detected any damage to cars outside......can not see if damage don't to gardens of home exterior and that table top camera for $28. What about in home privacy. Why have a camera in your home living room that footage and sound goes off to a 3rd party could be 100s of strangers watching you in your own home day and night so is $28 home security .....NO. STAY AWAY FROM CHEAP GEEK CRAP

    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.

    Hi, cameras with DVR would be in more stable connection. IP cameras lose connection sometimes. But IP camera would be good working in the house, not really good for working outdoors.

    Hi. Google is not always right. Pc based is over lan network (dedicated) on switch gear for camera connection. Nvr based camera don’t need to be on lan. Cameras can connect direct to recorder and also be powered on same cable if poe hard drive on your router is not the way you need to do more homework before you waste money. 100% cable is the best option wireless always gives problems. Poweline plugs with ip cameras is the best way to go if cables are a problem

    I found the best security cameras for me and highly recommend it to you! The perks of a light bulb camera are endless, starting from good quality because of the lighting and finishing with WiFi capabilities. Check all the details here https://geeklah.com/best-light-bulb-camera.html

    Hi. Your budget is a big problem $100 for recorder and cameras. Can't be done. just look at the price of a hard drive and most of your budget has gone. either buy cheap junk fro eBay and waste your $100 or build a system each month by adding to it. I would start of with buying a NVR and each month by a camera

    Panoramic view camera? I would recommend ZOSI and EZVIZ: https://www.zositech.com/product/zosi-wireless-security-camera-mini-360-degree-panoramic-wifi-indoor-dome-vr-cctv-camera/ https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?cstrackid=9fc2c034-1eb4-453b-aa7b-3ea501243dba&Item=N82E16881389072&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-ChannelSight-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=7907693&SID=9fc2c0341eb4453baa7b3ea501243dba The latter one is much expensive.

    I have had a DVR system for years but just use the newer stand alone ones fill in for where I have not had time to run the cable through my three roofs and two walls. I would have had 15 stand alone ones over the years and the old ones even the $100 was not reliable. I even bought last year a $140 name brand stand alone but gave it away as it did not take a Micro SD card and only saved to the Cloud. That is good if they steal your camera but I did not want to pay the monthly fee. So the current ones I have are working great and even had one pointed at my security system so I can see if the house alarm has gone off. That has been very handy for years but will put my main DVR system camera to cover that seeing I can now get the eight cameras on my main system showing on my IPhone. I have had the stand alone ones outside monitoring outside the rear of the house where it is close to the router and protected under my BBQ roof. I have had a stand alone IP camera monitoring the front door through a window near the front door and continuously recording to a 64gb Micro SD card until I was able to view my main DVR system on my IPhone. The stand alone ones can always be hacked and people can view and hear what is on the camera. There is good viewing of that on youtube. The DVR system is always the best way but the stand alone ones are good depending on peoples budget and the security required. That is seeing the new ones have proven to me to be quite reliable.

    Maverick, wifi are isn't very reliable do to possible interference from all these wifi gadgets now a days, They will fail right when you need them. 1 wifi camera might be ok, but the more you add the problems. This looks like a good deal, but you will need to buy a hard drive. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?sdtid=12321619&SID=84fd9180038c11e99fd8dee7c78a78dc0INT&AID=10446076&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&Item=N82E16881183095&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL112218&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-Slickdeals LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&ignorebbr=1&cm_sp= My friend tommy found this one... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HIKVISION-OEM-8CH-4K-CCTV-KIT-DS-7608NI-I2-8P-NVR-4MP-Dome-IP-IR-H-265-HD-Camera/263561965076?var=&hash=item3d5d846e14

    I am a cheap skate or a savvy buyer maybe. So I'll mention the cheap ones I have had but no 360 degree ones. Maybe you are after a DVR box type with IP Cameras but here is some information on cheap stand alone ones. All these you have to have patience and not mind mucking around with the a bit. I have been using the V380 ones for quite a while and been good. I could check the cameras from overseas on my IPhone. You actually search V380 to locate the cameras on sites. V380 Version I have had for years these well in the 720P version and this is an updated 1080P. They may now have QR code to set up but if not they can take a while to set up Sometimes you can do it in 2 minutes. That is set up with an IPhone etc. On my Geek IPhone app I have this exact camera for $22. This one is $35 so go searching. Occasionally EBay have them around $25. https://geek.wish.com/product/5a7518180e39882737375378?&hide_login_modal=true Digoo Name Brand Version. My daughter bought three Digoo BB-M1 IP cameras which look the same as the V380 ones. I set one up for her and it worked great but she moved it and could not get it going again. So I have the three Digoo IP cameras for a couple of months and only today I could not see anything on the Micro SD Card. I just rebooted it and all good again. To get the Digoo cameras going it was quick and easy as it had a QR code to scan. But there are features you have to set up the way you want them. Either record on movement or full time record plus other stuff which takes a while to understand. It is just what you have to do with any IP camera. I think there is a Version 2 - Digoo BB-M2 which would be a bit dearer. Yahoo I just found Version 2 for AU $28 https://www.banggood.com/Digoo-BB-M2-Mini-WiFi-Camera-USB-Wireless-IP-CAM-Home-Security-HD-720P-RTSP-PTZ-Audio-Onvif-p-1097872.html?cur_warehouse=CN I would say that is a good buy but check them out on youtube and review sites. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=digoo+m2 That should be good and worth buying one at least. I have paid $100 for ip cameras in the past and they have been useless. Pity I wasted that money on name brand cameras but these new ones were not around then. See what you think. Col

    See all you want to do is *** your like a woman. Did you try the setting a surgested or is it too easy for you. Trust me I get no payment from lorex I don’t need it. But since you can’t answer simple questions to be able to teach you how to work your system Looks like your only option now is to take lorex to court (your words) Good luck with that when there defence will be your own posted thread..... you don’t listen I bet your one of these people who has lots of lawsuits a year over the most stupid things just to make money.

    There are a lot of forums and only you seem to have the problem. But now you have explained a bit more about your problem people can start to work it out. Which NVR are you using ? Who installed the hard drive What is your pre and post set at. On your schedule what alerts have you set. On your playback screen what colours show in time line.

    Hi. Hight limitations used to be a problem with old D1 res cameras. And got a little better with 1080p. Hight of the camera took away its viewing distance. This is not the case now with 4K as you have more detail at distance. I.E. Camera 8ft high and a person under it you only get top of head shot with old D1 you would not even get a face shot if person was 20ft from camera....... But with 4K a persons face can be detected over 40ft away ...... Mask area sends digital signal to recorder .....it would show up as sensor trigger in playback. Lorex manuals don't explain much ......so you are better looking as the dahua specs as your camera is 100% dahua

    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)?

    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).

    Hi. We do a lot of pos and gilbarco systems ( both pos and pump management) You will find it much easier to use the existing internal network to capture the text. Each cash register is already sending the text data back to back office ( as stock control) which is still to much info for using as text overlay but if you go on the back office PC and do IP config and search pos term all cash registers will show ... Write down each IP address it will show for each. Then go to management service on the pos back office then network and look for port out ..... Look at each IP you written down and look for port 5551 ( cash register1) 5552 ( cash register2) This will give you the same text as recept to customer and these are the IP and address you should use on each camera on your hik NVR Also on gilbarco pump management it has alarm outputs which can be sent to a PTZ camera .... When pump 1 is started PTZ will turn to is or pump 4 .... Capture every pump which starts and this will also show on transaction ( if pump start is on registers)

    This is what I did: Unplug DVR. Remove internal battery Leave unpowered for a few days. (Left mine for a week) Then install the internal battery and power up the unit. Username should be "admin" with "0123" as password.

    Well I need to know the model number from the DVR to see if you can use it or if you will need to replace all of your DVRs with a unit that can support dual recording or remote backup.

    Why do you want to do this? Why not just pull recorded video from the remote site when you need to review recorded video? This also depends on the capability of your DVRs. I have systems the you can do dual recording to two different system and they can also off load video at schedule times. Streaming continuously 47 DVR's over web will take a lot of bandwidth. Each site will be X amount of upload bandwidth and then the headend will need (X * number of sites) download bandwidth. This will not be cheap.
