  1. Hi. Why would it be an issue. he would still need a pc or laptop to view the camera he wants to move. other options using a network joystick. But you will have to make changes at ptz ...... camera needs to go into a switch before it’s connected to nvr. So he can have direct link to ptz from remote location other is moxa rs232 to USB ..... this you would use on the remote pc and it turns a USB port into command for ptz control via com port ..... but his remote software needs to support this option what make is ptz and nvr in use
  2. Hi. Yes it’s simple and has a few ways of doing it. first way has no cost ..... most nvr remote software has the ptz control built in for all devices windows / Mac / iOS / Android option 2 is install a nvr of same make in his home and call all cameras to that. this option also gives your customer a off site backup recording giving his system a bit more security
  3. Hi. Yes most cameras are both h264/h265 and also auto detect
  4. Hi. Don’t use a 3rd party cloud you will save a lot of money installing your own and hiding it take a look at the WD cloud unit. It will do what you want and also other benefits like photos / video / music storage from your other devices

    A CALL FOR HELP !!!!!!!!

    Hi. Two problems stand out from the start. First is your cat cable stranded cat6 should not be used for that distance only for patch or locations that may have movement...... also you can’t clip stranded cat6 other is power cable over that distance 0.75 or 1mm would be better how many cameras do you have on each cat6

    CCTV setup for farm

    Hi. With a budget of £500 going the Poe switch option and your cabling your budget is not much. how many cameras do you think you need 4 in 1 shed and 2 in the other ? an nvr is now only the size of small dvd player a box would only be a few £s to house it in. you can buy cheaper options from eBay or amazon ..... but you need to look at how the audio is configured some need wired mics back to nvr some the cameras don’t have built in microphones so that’s an extra cost

    CCTV setup for farm

    Hi. Cable from house to shed will limit your data from cameras (running all data from switch back to nvr on one cable) install nvr in shed and run your network cable from house to nvr in shed. this will save you a lot of money as no switches are needed and you won’t be limited to resolution of cameras

    CCTV setup for farm

    Hi. I would look at 6mp cameras with audio with your budget. 4 cameras in a shed will give you most cover as 6mp will give you more detail than a 2mp

    CCTV setup for farm

    Hi. We’re are you located and what is your budget. 360 camera might be best for your barn areas plus it would keep the cost down for your remote location barn as they are very low power use. your nvr would be located on the house which would give you view of all cameras

    Waves on monitor

    Hi. Baluns or ground loop devices will not help you. you can’t alter ntsc format cameras you are fortunate that you can change the format on your recorder for each format ... not all dvrs give you that option Larnaca. North old Cyprus

    Waves on monitor

    Hi. Forget about ground loop that would not fix pal/ntsc format problems ..... and ground loop is not a problem with HD anyway noth Cyrus is going to be our location

    Waves on monitor

    Not only do cameras have switchable pal ntsc in there menu dvr also has the option on each channel they need to match so if your having to run some cameras NTSC then regional setting on that channel is set to NTSC

    Waves on monitor

    Hi. Some countries have different broadcasting formats also different hertz your in Cyprus which is PAL system and is also same for rest of Europe PAL NTSC and SECAM are also know as regional formats PAL Europe NTSC is America SECAM is Russia China India but also use PAL but secam and pal cant be used on same system. always buy PAL for your region or at least a system that can be switched. Always check when buying. we will have a outlet in Cyprus soon.

    samsung cameras dead pixels / dark spots

    Hi. Dead pixels would not show like that and is something that does not happen. Having 11 cameras out of 15 is also a indication that it’s not dead pixels there is only two reasons to have images like yours and it’s an easy fix first one is a common fault when you remove and install a system .... and I’m 95% this is your problem on standard analog you also have on each camera a regional setting. NTCS or PAL You will see these settings under camera settings NTCS = America PAL = Uk/ Europe second is in image settings which is called either Denoise or wide dynamic both of which if set to high will give you the same image as yours .... but unlikely to be on a analog system

    Strange flickering lines on the screen

    Harsha500 why redirect from this forum to your own and then your fix on your forum is the biggest load of crap some of your quotes ...... CAUSE: Another thing you can do to find out the cause of the security camera image flickering is to disconnect the coax at the camera output. Check if the flickering still continues. Or 1.CAUSE: The first thing that you will need to check is whether the video input to the monitor a loop through with a video output to drive for example video tape recorder. video tape recorder ???? Your 20 years behind And you want people to pay you with PayPal Reading your forum is like reading a joke book
  19. Hi. This might explain it better. http://www.encam.info/downloads/manuals/IP Camera Quick Start Guide BD.pdf network share is on your pc settings
  20. Hi. That’s your router giving it the pv4 IP address 169.254.-.- you need to connect to the camera direct on your pc but you need to disconnect your pc from the internet and set the network properties to same as ip camera. open the network and share program on your pc then click local area connection. on pop up window click properties then select internet protocol click.......use the following up address From the ip you have posted you need to enter these settings on your internet protocol page. IP address——— subnet mask ———- default gateway ———— preferred DNS ———- once this is done enter your iP cameras address into your browser camera user is admin password is 123456 what nvr have you replaced it with ?

    4k over coax

    Cyprus nice. been asked to supply a outlet there a few times. your right HD analog is limited over cat5. Once over 4mp coax is better for distance. done HD analog over half mile with no problems when looking at 4K analog always pick 4 in 1 cameras and 5 in 1 recorders ..... this gives you the option to use all formats
  22. tomcctv

    4k over coax

    We’re are you based ? your best option is to use your existing cable HD analog has less problems than old analog over cca cable try using your existing cable first before having another experience you might not need
  23. Hi. I would look at a hybrid system you can still use your existing cameras plus upgrade and add in time. avermedia cards and the pc software are no longer supported but just by using a hybrid your existing cameras will also give you a better image. Avermedia cards limited your cameras. wireless systems are not a good idea and don’t last. A hybrid system will also allow you to use ip cameras ........ you don’t need to get cables to them you just need a power supply at the location and that allows you to send the video down existing power cable hybrids are cheap now and allows you to use up to 5mp

    AVH1109 and DGH1109

    Hi. Most recorders are sold as 4 - 8 - 16 - 32 reading both specs they are only 8way recorders. also there is a little difference between both models you have listed ..... size of mp cameras you can use and the other difference is notifications. Avtech have two types of push notification..... push video and push alert. One sends notification without video the other sends video ........ which is a bit out of date to other manufacturers NVRs i am not a fan of a 3rd party involvement in a cctv system ...... using a cloud service in another country and the last few years it has not been good for avtech your moving up from a analog to HD mp cameras is your old system on coax or cat5 ? have you looked at any other make and also HD analog

    WWV-SF332 Alternative?

    Hi. Selling you discontinued cameras is a bad start. as for £2000 cost ... that would depend on the camera install .... distance of new cable and how installed ie conduit or groundwork. is this a private school ???? Your right local authority schools would not have that expense. as far as avigilon..... it is not a plug and play system and you will find that your system will have a system manager either school IT or school has a contract with the install company. either way the manager is the only person who can add cameras. yes avigilon system can run other makes of cameras cheaper than your Panasonic...... I don’t know what licence costs you have but I would ask the question why your install company is not using avigilon cameras....... there same price as your Panasonic But better and no charge for licence
