  1. Hi this is not the case infact it would do nothing to iP cameras this is the problem with security cameras …. These days there are two types … and diyers get it so wrong there are cctv cameras -analog / HD analog/ and IP these are true cctv with no 3rd party involvement at all then there are the cheap smart cameras …. And should never get mixed up with cctv smart cameras need registration to a server for them to work and some also need a monthly fee for cloud storage and also a fee to collect footage …… lots of money to buy smart cameras and run yet no control over the equipment you have paid for CCTV … or IP system like the quote at top of this post iP systems don’t have any connection to network away from your home ….. you can set a system up in the middle of nowhere with no internet of phone or wireless and they work smart cameras like your reolink need to run on a China server ….. infact 2020 reolink we’re caught storing data from smart cameras ….. and also your original problem audio is also stored by 3rd party
  2. What make is your camera and what app does it use
  3. Hi …. This is very normal with cctv. infact it helps the police ….. it would of also shown someone else or a car in that area if a person or car went past what your looking at in the video is motion detection with pre and post operating…… it saves on disk space and also only records the motion detection area the original footage will also have a signature/ watermark embedded into the video which will tell the police the video settings at the time with onboard clock ….. all systems have it my concern about the video is ……. Cctv is a information collector…. It’s puts together a story from main camera to others around the area even if a mile away but no one has talked about the car that disappeared……. It activates the motion detection 2.30 am as it leaves ….. can see the car top left (break lights) so more video is needed before 2am to see when that car entered that area (could of been sitting there for a while) but what is needed now is video from area of the car …. At that time of night not many cars on the road so should not of been that difficult with a start time line of 2.30 am but unfortunately police don’t investigate to where it’s takes there man power up I don’t know when this was but important cctv will now be lost from other systems also I was involved in a drive by shooting 2years ago when we was asked to download video of we’re they abandoned the car …. Did not show much …. Just them looking for a quiet place to leave the car …. Except some more information on cctv showed one of them was on a mobile phone at the time …… it was 3.10am not many called are being made at that time so cell tower information at that time revealed on 7 people were on cell at that time …… there were caught because of there cell number

    New Guy, refurbish Samsung Techwin SPD-3750

    Hi. It is not a simple as you think infact it’s pointless… you would be better off selling your working ptzs and putting the money towards new iP ptz which is a cheaper option anyway reasons why analog ptz go into startup mode on first power….. head spins for pan and tilt central point then zoom (focus check) this is all done on heads management then allows ptz to operate …. Changing camera head from analog to iP you will loose the zoom central point as the ptz head management can’t read data … analog is done by sensors next problem power difference…. Samsung is 24v so you will need to go Poe on camera head and another supply for old ptz control ….. and this gives you another problem analog ptz controller will not control zoom on iP camera so a analog ptz controller needs to be used to pan and tilt and a network controller or nvr for zoom control … this also gives you the other problem …. You can’t have control at all if using a app for nvr to control ptz as far as replacement domes for camera to fit you will see 10 years ago in forum search it is not that easy and expensive…. We used to make them years ago
  10. Hi. There is always a reason why I ask a lot of questions…. Put them all together and get to the problem. I’ll explain why you think your system has been hacked now knowing your hard drive history without your system not on any network a hacker will first change your password and lock you out cctv that 98% of all hacks in your case it’s not a hack it’s using a secondhand hard drive that is already infected with a malware or spyware that it has been infected with on what ever else it was used in I trying to think of a simple way of putting it look at is this way your hard drive has Alzheimer's its confused also known as corrupt hard drive. bad sectors slowing speed the good new is malware or spyware on your hard drive will not get onto your nvr it only writes to a hard drive there is no storage on your nvr to be infected its always been said always use a brand new hard drive straight out of the packet and into nvr …. Then the nvr will automatically format the drive for it use on that nvr so don’t waste money on a new nvr just buy a new hard drive
  11. Hi your easiest solution is to swap out your nvr …there a cheap solution as far as car on one screen and not the other depends on how live view is configured on your unit …. Some new so called 4K systems like yours needs to be processed (4Kviewing)this also uses hard drive do you know what hard drive you have fitted to your unit

    Security Cameras

    Just one camera 100% security ……. You talk crap €98 but same camera is on Amazon for €19 you also forget to mention that camera needs to be registered to a China server for it to work
  13. Yes it was your question….. secret Wi-Fi chip is your second question the answer to your problem is the same above faulty hard drive and it is common you can also go into your router and look at inbound traffic …. Or contact your service provider for information on inbound constant freezing play back = this can be something as simple as wrong hard drive fittedWriting speed wrong ——————————————- video playback 6 secondsslower than HDD time marker and on and on = sign of bad sectors on your hard drive sectors not in order to read so takes longer because of faulty sectors —————————————- these are your questions in your first post which points to bad hard drive ……. Your system even has a operation log ….which will show everything
  14. Hi without your system being on internet it won’t of been hacked. your symptoms are also the same as a faulty hard drive…… in your case a lot of bad sectors….. this would be my first thing to sort out replace hard drive and also check time and date is constant

    Best 4k NVR

    Sorry but they don’t ….. uk government or Australia don’t use hik or dahua either https://www.reuters.com/technology/us-plans-impose-sanctions-chinas-hikvision-ft-2022-05-04/ your thread was for best 4K ….. good luck on a full 4K from both hik and dahua as both nvrs come with restrictions and limits you have done homework on finding the cheapest systems instead of reliable ones with good apps and software yet not come back on your findings for a TVT nvr …. Well below your budget and one of the best systems out at the moment
