  1. If your credit card company can see it ...... as in telling you it needs an update .... then as far as a secure network ..... it’s not. who owns the network you or credit card company

    Hi. Your recorder is not forward comparable your new cameras are 4mp and your system only uses 1.3mp (720p) you will need a new cvi recorder for 4mp
  3. Hi sounds like a scam first your credit card company would not have a clue on cctv or if needs update or not. If you are taking customers card detail then you Must make that side of your business more secure. GDPR is something you need to look at. It covers cctv and cash management I would get a network guy to look at making your network for credit cards more secure. I would check with your recorder manufacturer if it does need a update and not take the word of a 3rd party who should not have access to your cctv....... who owns the internet side ......you or the credit card company

    DVR + Cameras recommendations

    Hi. It all depends on your budget .... hd cvi unit are good as well as tvi hd systems ..... problems is they go out of date quick..... two years ago we had 2mp cvi and tvi ..... next year 3mp now it’s upto 8mp but none are backward compatible also you are using cat5 so on cvi and tvi you would also need to power cameras and have camera power supplies for cameras. Also dvr and cvi / tvi will use more power. you will find going ip will be cheaper much neater install as everything is from cat5 from camera to nvr (poe) ip is also backward comparable I would look at 5mp camera with a nvr what is your budget

    Outdoor PIR sensor.

    Hi. We’re are you located ? for a business I would stay with the professional route. Like I said you can use £20 texecom alarm sensors sealed with silicone but I would only do this for low risk home use as it is much better than motion from the camera. For a businesshe he would hold you responsible if anything goes wrong in your case I would only look at gjd or redwall but you also have another option for around £40 which are beam sensors and will give you better coverage

    Outdoor PIR sensor.

    Is this for home or business use ...... if your looking for something to use which is better than motion detection on camera then any alarm sensor will do you just have to be good with a silicone gun. if your looking for better protection then GJD sensors are the best http://www.gjd.co.uk/products/security-lighting/opal-xl-gjd020 we have used the above for over 11 years both wired and wireless

    No joystick needed with building rs485 address .......01 protocol ......Pelco d baud rate ........2400 set on both your camer and dvr on your dvr .... Hit menu at bottom and I think PTZ settings are second down on left of window

    Wiring configuration

    Your analog will ....and HD will only show in analog. So 16 IP cameras ..... 10 of which are PTZ ...... Good luck on that with that recorder ......and you will not get 32tb into that. you know when you have bought junk when you read the box ....look at paragraph 2... Intergrated entertainment features such as playing games and HD moves i would also question the p2p location and security. your not going to get 16 IP PTZ cameras on a low budget.
