  1. Hi. Yes most cameras are both h264/h265 and also auto detect
  2. 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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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
