    Close up ip camera & lens needed

    Hi a standard 2mp full colour turret camera will work fine for you. which nvr are you using and we’re are you located
  2. Hi before you buy anything I would do a little more homework yes the viper is one of the best systems out I have over 80 out. the one you quoted is a bit pricey are you only looking for a 4 channel ? also the camera you currently have is 8 years old and is a Samsung.. Samsung don’t play nice with other systems as far as connecting a ring doorbell yes it can be done BUT again may not play well but the viper does now have an add on which will control all smart devices from ring to garage/ door control. And doing this way keeps the nvr under the new NDAA regulations …. Is this for home use

  4. Hi. It looks like smart record is enabled. This is used to save space on hard drive.. basically your recording is lower res when no motion is detected and switches to high on motion detection as you can see in your video when the little Bunny 🐰 moves it’s high res. mare you recording 24/7 ? also you might want to turn up your pre and post record time … it looks like you have both set to 0 in your video

    New Dahua XVR5116H HDD alarm

    Hi. 34ford i think your problem is your hard drive…. If it’s been used for 8 years then it is at the end of its life with your new recorder …Ai -H265-audio-4K it’s a lot of data …. A hard drive of 8 years will look as if a format cleans it up we’re the fact is it does not ….. it only passes by the bad sectors and the more bad sectors make it hard to wright to. You can’t put a hard drive back to original it will always have data on it
  11. Hi. Can you give your location so as links given can be in your area also is your system used for domestic or a business
