  1. PoF or Power over fibre is coming ..... Has anyone here used the emerging products to run CCTV and power over the same cable ? The advantage is that its immune to EMI / RFI / EMP and can be run through more electrically hazardous industrial environments. Who has used it and which products / manufacturers did you find ?
  2. I have underlined the words that I would like to emphasize to people that read this. If you can decipher the poor english, you would read "Warmly you to test". I presumed this meant they were offering products for me to test first so I would continue purchasing from them. My response and conversation continued with... I dont want to boar everyone to death so Ill leave it there, but the emails continued back and forth while obviously getting more and more lost in translation. I was assumed they were offering me products to test so I would continue purchasing from them. Not only is it impossible for me to remove this post, I never had any intentions to remove this post on their request, as I thought everyone should be warned about their dodgy products. If anything they were trying to bribe me. Its quite funny how Cantonk continue to insist that they CMOS boards didnt have a problem and they just need IR to work at night. Biggest load of crap. I tried to convince them for months that the cameras had an issue, as a last resort I had to dismantle 12 of the cameras and send them back to Cantonk. Finally I got the answer I was looking for from the sales manager. So to sum it up, I was right and they were wrong. The updated boards did show a lot of improvement but they still have they flickering issue just no where near as bad. Also why would a CMOS board have Day & Night setting options in the OSD if it did not have low lux functionality. Image of OSD http://solidgoldsecurity.com.au/wp-content/uploads/cantonk.jpg Here is a few more video examples of their dodgy cameras. Eo06DhzUovk G4iE6eMWrB4 You lost a lot of money due to the problem which obviously was not caused by you or your power supply , if it was me in your situation I would call it a loss just from my labour of around $4-5000. Cantonk should have compensated you , it would have been polite if they had given you a couple of thousand worth of stock which to them would only be a cost of maybe $500. The wording you used sounded like extortion , where really it would have been a clever choice for cantonk to offer products to you as a win - win opportunity for you both. It is typical from Chinese companies however when they sell you something faulty they duck and run or blame someone else , they just didn't learn yet that if they do the correct honest thing it is a great investment in marketing that can give 5 times increase in popularity that improves many more sales
  3. Hi. The problem is there all different formats. Cvi is digital at camera tvi is converted at dvr same as AHD and SDI We have done it with cvi but it's expensive Cheapest way and as most recorders are now full hybrid ....IP CVI TVI AHD SDI ...... Is to use IP over power were needed thanks Tom Yes , The hybrids are attractive for their flexibility. I am sure it wont be long before someone develops devices to do it for AHD / SDI etc but for now i will go with the IP over PLC or throw a few WiFi channels in the mix where cable runs are obstructed.
  4. There are plenty of PLC products in the market now for IP CCTV transmission over power cables , but has anyone seen the same products in a standalone pack for BNC Coax analogue , AHD , TVI or SDI over power cabling ? What is the simplest way to do PLC with analogue cameras ?
  5. Does anyone have a link to compatibility tables for network PTZ cameras with Blue Iris other than their website ? The Blue Iris website does have a list of products and brands but its very incomplete and it mentions in places that PTZ may not work with some cameras. Blue iris offer a trial version but thats not helping me choose which cameras to buy. I would like to get a couple of auto tracking motion detect PTZ domes so they can be programmed to zoom in on anything that moves , auto focus , hold the shot or follow the target for a few seconds and then move back to wide angle shot until the next motion event. I also have vivotek FD8164 , Hikvision DS-2CD1141-I and DS-2CD2142FWD-I cameras to use on the same system. Has anyone used auto tracking PTZ with Blue iris and advise of issues , or advise which PTZ dont work ? Next question , will Blue Iris allow motion detect to work with all brands of camera ? , i have previously tried vivotek FD8164 cameras through a POE switch on to a Hikvision 7616 NVR but found that motion detect and VCA wont work on the NVR despite both devices claiming ONVIF compatibility.

    fix my install.

    Okay but if you have say 12 cams you still need a 12 port NVR even though you will only be using one port right? Thanks for your help. If you're worried about someone cutting power to your cams have you thought of putting a UPS to give you redundancy for your cameras ? I use a 4500 watt UPS that i picked up at the right price to give backup power to my entire system and i get over 3 hours .
  7. genie 01/07/2017 zzrqz9SQ9 first cam i get these 01/07/2017 qSd9R9r9y9 04/07/2017 Sz9zReQQzQ second cam 04/07/2017 SyzqQeQ9dQ i think what people are doing wrong is they try to use the full serial number from SADP , you must delete the model number from the serial number before you do it.
  8. what everyone has been doing wrong is they use the full device serial number from SADP . you must remove the device model number first and use only the part number which is in red below. DS-7608NI-E20820150306AARR506038794WCVU paste the red number into the link below , use the reset code in SADP tool to reset to factory default password of 12345 http://www.hikvision.com/us/DownloadAgreementPro.aspx?stat=1&c_kind=10649&id=36220&iframe=true&width=760&height=400 The link above gives us the file to download. What does this have to do with our problem? The original link was working but i think you need to ask the moderators what their policy is on this topic. Maybe someone is concerned that the tool could be used to gain unauthorised access to NVR's ?

  10. DS-NVR-V120B20170316-842B2B947477 try it all again using only the serial number in bold above
  11. There are 30 pages of posts in this thread. To begin with the requests were being answered by a member who never got any thanks for it. If he runs a business to put bread on his table then the time he spent in this thread would have him starving to death. Why should he or other contributors spend 100 hours of their time for no gratitude ? They don't get paid to do it and they don't owe any of us any degree of enslavement.
  12. Hey people I think this thread is dead. Deceased . Not breathing .cactus . Stop posting questions . They will not be answered . You are just wasting all the black ink from inside the computer .
  13. Hi. Check your pm Hi Thankyou kindly. I just tried it with SADP tool using the HIKVision serial number generated but cant get the password to work under the SADP 'forgot password' tool or by using the NVR Admin login I am in Australia , i tried using the dates either side in case it was a timezone issue but still shows as incorrect password. What might i be doing wrong please ?
