    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    My name is Charlie. Due to our location slowly turning into Dodge city I have installed a Konig CCTV system. I have joined to learn more about CCTV so I can help other people in our local home watch association of which I am a member. 76 Yrs but still got a mind

    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

    Hi. It is a mine field ... that’s the problem with online systems and prices are all over the place. a 4 way nvr recorder with 4 x 5mp cameras is £300 cheaper than your quote and is uk based and uk cloud service

    Franky, Im sorry about your dog that is awful. Hikvision Darkfighter and Dahua Starlight cameras provide really good low light performance, watch some youtube videos on them. As far as resolution I would buy the highest you can afford. Good Luck! Louis

    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

    hello! It's called as "remote access". Each manufacturer has its own programs for remote access. What manufacturer equipment do you use?

    Tom, it's clear you were wasting your time with this one from the start. He already knows everything there is to know about everything. Just ask him, he'll tell you so

    I would also think anyone who owned a home .... would like to OWN there home Boarding up windows ..... who in there right mind would do that to there home. Turning home into a windowless box. Guy has admitted to being able to see into the bed room...... so he is already watching...... even the guy admitting it is a problem in it's self

    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 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.

    We have had our units damaged and stolen bNHy burglars in the past. We want to be able to watch the break ins from remote locations. Security cabinets have not worked. In fact, at one store they actually took an atm machine that was mounted to the floor. Hiding the dvr wont work, because employees have been involved in the robberies and knew where to look. My boss wants remote recording. He is not going to be happy until he gets it.

    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.
