    16 ch shopping center

    When someone asks you to do a install you have two options .... you can say yes or no. Dont take this the wrong way but in your case I would say no.. fitting a domestic system into a shopping centre is your first mistake. Have your worked out the storage needed for 24/7 with motorised ? That system can’t do the storage you need so how will you retain/ store your talking dvr and nvr and coax so which platform are you installing also 2mp ...... look at something better ....why install something that is already out of date what country are you in
  2. It’s a house install ..... no need for fiber no difference will be seen either with car5 or 6
  3. Hi. With the reset button which is next to power and BBC’s connection .... hold in for 5 seconds .....press again every 5 seconds till it goes into standard analog...... then you will see menu controls again ..... factory reset then click iris +
  4. So I take it you have not worked out a price .? can Linux users add up ....... Sorry but it is not cost effective at all .... Just with a quick work out 4 cameras with PTZ ........... Is over $1.200 a year and only at CIF and only 12 hrs a day and only 3fps. That's cloud now computer software ........$100 a camera a year ....hik or dahua a Tenvis IP (which you buy for $30 .........costs $40 a year
  5. Your service cable will fit the full cnb ranger including HD analog i have 100s of them out ..... even profile picture is the same cam and that’s been there since I joined. Now that it’s apart you can see why I suggested doing settings at night
  6. The brown is for cnb in-line controller. Only altered the back light and dnr.... not worth the extra work if you send cnb a picture they will help
  7. Hi. Very good camera in its day. You cant connect that camera via rs485 only the 50 and 70mm had rs495 and lens protocols all your camera controls are behind the lens you need to remove 4 screws around your lens cover and pull it away ...... you will see the lens adjustment and the dip switches. I highly recommend that you do the camera settings at night for you to get the best result...... saves you removing lens cover all the time.. concept are just a uk reseller the makers are CNB tech
  8. Hi it needs software installed first ..... firmware is added later if needed. You need to talk to who you bought it from
  9. My point ..... fixed motorised lens .... how is that done ..... by magic ? Then the same spec tells you it’s 2.8 i would also trust hands on more than specs
  10. Hi. Is this a new system or has it worked if new it sounds like it’s not had the software loaded

    nvr and dvr camera questions

    ONVIF on cameras has nothing to do with remote view once setup you should be using tinycam into NVR not each camera.. Have you tried another app

    nvr and dvr camera questions

    I think we have had this discussion before. Tinycam is your problem ..... it’s not compatible with every nvr or dvr. Not one app does it all what make is your nvr and dvr.

    nvr and dvr camera questions

    Hi.. instead of setting cameras for remote view it’s going to be much easier to setup your nvr

    Who owns the video?

    Read amazon cloud terms ...... not good amazon also bought uk ring security terms are amazon can use your camera at anytime 3rd party are never private

    Who owns the video?

    Hi .. have you a local up address also for the camera and can you logon direct from pc
  16. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
