    But which one?

    Listen I was only commenting on the view in your picture your 40 mile from Scottish boarder so I was not far off. ..... reason for asking your location is we have a customer doing the same thing ..... he has a ptz camera on his pub just out of Gretna green
  2. 20m works out around £6 toolstation 304m £62 then you need baluns check your pm .... there only a few miles from you And you will get everything

    Oh ok I thought Scotland and Wales was United Kingdom. it was only a friendly start to your post 😂 no the url will be on your website directing back to your video on YouTube you could use ftp stream from your nvr to YouTube account

    Sorry thought you was in the uk. £1000 budget is way more than what you need for your project. you also need to take into account Squarespace don’t host video direct you will need to also need something like YouTube and use the url from there 4k camera will do what you need I would also use a nvr for easy setup of your camera and for downloading footage to upload on a page

    hi. Tim can’t make out if your Snowdonia or west Scotland location nice views it all depends on your budget .... it is a good location to use a ptz camera and if your looking at making it public on a web page you could have it doing a slow tour. what is your budget
  6. Ok we’re are you located ? there is patch cable and solid cat5 .... it’s the solid you need
  7. Hi. Yes that is the idea .... but I would not use that type of balun that last used in the description What length of cat5 are you looking for ?
  8. Hi I would do it in cat5 ..... saves doing any more cable work in the future cat5 will run analog HD analog and IP cameras you can also run more than 1 camera down cat5

    Looking for advice

    Hi. A system that best meets your needs is called a IP system 8 channel NVR 6 IP cameras 2 IP cameras with audio 1 reel of cat5 cable (comes in 300m) 16 RJ45 plugs you don’t need any port supplies as the NVR supplies the power down the same cable
  12. Hi. cable kits not good ...... not even 75ohm. Your faulty camera will be one of the yellow bnc there are 100s of posts on here about those cable kits.... no good for power no good for video can you change the leads easy ? How far are the cameras on the yellow leads
  13. Ok try some more tests. we’re are you based ? just noticed two other things in your picture first you are showing remote login pictures. Do you have a monitor connected plus it looks like your connected to cloud and your camera ID also shows Cam1@793593... which looks like XMeye server. also in your picture you camera shows OSD (on screen display) and it’s showing POC (power over coax) is this how your cameras are powered ..... coax and power cable to cameras or just coax

    Hi Paul ..... good budget it will come under that. POE system is best for you and it also means no extra power to install or add to the stables POE is also a lot less cabling

    Looking for advice

    Hi Paul It is getting that way in the uk with livestock. what is your budget for this install. mid this is your first install then go with a IP system plug and play and much better than hd analog With coax 1 cat5 cable to each camera back to the recorder no power cable needed. I would also make at least two of your cameras with audio... you can hear your horses if in distress don’t buy cheap of the likes of eBay or amazon ok it’s to look at your stables but it also becomes a health and safety tool I have a post on here a few years ago at a racehorse stables and we also installed sensors on the barn doors that alert you when ever a barn door is opened .... it sends a text to your mobile phone
  16. Hi yes it sounds like a power problem .... they do get weak over time also 5amp for 4 cameras is in tolerance but does give some problems sometimes say cameras are 1amp run in day time colour =4amp ...... but at night switch over cameras need more power to switch IR on and to move the lens filter 4 cameras with only 1amp left .... a surge takes your 5amp to its max ..... you can till if this is a problem ...... at night hold your power supply and instead of warm it is hot. I would get another 5amp power supply and run two cameras on each. another test you can do tonight is remove a working camera from your power supply and leave the rest including your faulty one and see if it stays on all night
  17. How many cameras do you have connected to your power unit
  18. Hi. Yes it can also be cables if the conductor cables are thin but this would give you problems if long runs. what size power supply are you using

    Control of CnM Secure 8 channel recorder

    Your recorder is 10 years or More. I know CnM (Alex)They used to be on the forum till they closed. Check the date they were last on https://www.cctvforum.com/profile/17128-cnm-secure/ now your mouse problem ....... again your system has not had a update to update drivers for newer memory sticks or a mouse control to get past this just insert your memory stick and mouse then reboot your system and your mouse will come back i also have the CnM player here if you need it

    Control of CnM Secure 8 channel recorder

    Hi Katie. CnM. Went bust nearly 20 years ago and ther units were sold after that under sentinal name. and that stopped 10 years ago you need to ask your insurance company on how much footage they need. they may want the full day The CnM unit may also be priority software which means burn onto a memory stick but you will also need to also supply the file player. And that will not load on a computer now as it’s to old and the licence will have run out. depending on your type of business it might be better to buy a new dvr and just send yours to your insurance company old CnM s units are on eBay for £5 ...... you will pay more than that for a memory stick
  21. Hi switch your unit off for 20mins then switch on and try your code again
  22. Hi. You have a power supply problem in colour you camera uses less power than night mode with IR on. as soon as night comes your camera is not getting enough power to even switch to night mode

    New NVR

    You need to remember how firmware works it’s not a full software it’s an update or repair of the units existing software you list firmware of unit that is 2 years older than your unit 2018 will not be accepted if you have a China unit which I think you have as the firmware is old than the unit. YOU CAN NOT USE HIKVISION SOFTWARE. It will only brick your unit. Genuine hikvision software will not work on China units. you need to know if you can get into your system as it is PM me your serial number and time and date on the screen

    New NVR

    Hi. Your firmware does not match your model number it’s out by 3 years. for years forums have said don’t buy from eBay for hikvision .... even hikvision issued warnings in your case it looks like you have bought a unit that has already been messed about with and has the wrong firmware. the history of the unit is also important...... did it start off for the uk market .... is it a real hikvision or a copy or China only and someone has tried to change the language with firmware. your problem now is it needs to be 2019 firmware but it will not load unless your unit has 2017 already on the unit which yours has not. big paper weight is what you have don’t waste time on it
  25. Hi. It would make sense to use dahua since you are already using it. Your smartPSS will run everything nvrs and cameras. which country are you in ? Dahua and hikvision in government buildings
