    Who owns the video?

    Hi .. have you a local up address also for the camera and can you logon direct from pc
  2. Don’t think I made a mistake and as for the new revised spec ...... which again is full of crap .... dahua have now invented a FIXED motorised lens over sales on a spec again ...... I’ll get crap from the other two for pointing it out ..... but am only reading the spec posted The camera only has a fixed 2.8 lens ..... it does not have any motorised lens.. and that’s with me playing with one not just reading a spec SB_jim it’s all about when a cctv system becomes a gimmick or something to protect these new cams with flashing lights and siren on motion detection only gives more alert to where camera is located....... which is the last thing you want also you might not want a camera we’re morion is detected a few mass produce companies are trying the all in one cam ..... and some only work on that manufactures recorders optex (redwall) or gjd are both market leaders in detection mans gives a better 20m range

    Who owns the video?

    Hi. That is the way it is with 3rd party cloud system. You would have to take the lawsuit to China and you would be wasting a lot of money. Best option would be to reinstall sometime better and something with a recorder or sd card and stay away from out of country cloud services
  4. You will just be wasting your money cloud only based systems with a monthly fee is wasting money money better spent on a real cctv system. Opening your network up to a company you know nothing about and cameras listed are for indoors only have you looked at cost per year to run
  5. Hi. The problem with the dahua is it’s cheap made and it’s not a ptz like it says in dahua spec. another pointless camera built in pir with siren but can only be used internal not outdoors and cable management is useless mots always best to use separate sensors like redwall or gjd sensors
  6. Hi. Have you imputed the settings into dvr email page ? once all that is done you need to login to your gmail email account .... then security .... then switch off high security you are also best having a cctv gmail account and a different send account
  7. Hi. Sounds like you set recorders resolution out of range for your tv or monitor..... you will need to connect your recorder up to a HD tv or monitor and then change to a lower resolution then connect back to your monitor ask a friend who has a had tv there are no reset settings on a dahua so this is your only option

    Dvr will only show 2 channels

    Hi. It’s could just be something as simple as channels switched off. Last owner might of only used two cameras and switched off the other channels you need to look in menu for camera display or channel display and set each cam or your username and password only allows you to view two cameras ..... go into accounts and see restrictions on your username ..... check all live view is ticked

    Hi the viper unit will do what you need. I can get you a price tomorrow mots a 5mp system with 2 turret 5mp cameras. Do you have a monitor to use ? also another big part of your budget is going to be the cat5 cable ..... there is no point you buying 300m reel so I will sort that out for you

    Sance DVR System

    Ok ..... then let’s test your reason. ...... keep your 4 cameras wired and add another via the wireless......... see if it gives you 5 4 channel has graphics for 4 8 channel has graphics for 8 graphics is via hardware as card or chip it would be easy for everyone to upgrade from 4 to 8 to 16. With your way of thinking

    Sance DVR System

    Why would it be a sales forum ? you can tinker with as much software as you like It’s not just a matter of software ..... software can’t add hardware. So if you buy a 4 channel that’s all you have because that’s hardware for 4
