    Got a Hikvision  DS-2CD2432F-IW and I can log in to it as Admin OK but when I come to save changes to  the settings it responds with "No permission".

    Any suggestions?


    Hi. You can’t use admin ...... it is for setup only ..... you need to alter admin password to your own password before you can save

    try and set a 8 digit password 

  2. Hi. As good as the axis is your going to have bad night time images it only has a short ir range .... for a sub £1000 camera it should be able to achieve images as you would get with a starlight sensor ( village street lights ) will help with better night images


    have you thought of using a ptz camera

    tying to figure out your location Scotland or north Lake District 

    what is your budget

  3. Hi.

    Please explain why our equipment would communicate to a China 

    Because the software instructs you recorder to connect to China server same issue with hikvision .... that model was designed to do the connection

    I do all networking, we own our routers. No third party. 

    The third party is your recorder P2P

    even if you did not pick the P2P setup once recorder is connected to the internet it will setup

    there is a device called the ARM plug which connects to network cable before it enters the recorder which detects unauthorised connection but it depends on your type of business if cost is viable.... are all systems individual customers or a corporate setup

    what location are you in ?

    for more about your problem google dahua hikvision ban 

    also dahua botnet hack 2013 to 2017

  4. Hi. Looks like a Xmeye system 

    your image looks more like a format type problem or a pal ntsc problem


    format type =. Cvi tvi ahd 

    can you go into menu and look for either above click on it and see if all cameras are the same .... should be ahd

    on some older xmeye systems format type is displayed in bottom left of each camera .... you left click on the box to go though each format

    see if that helps

    1: Will changing the default port from 37777 to a non standard port prevent this particular hack? 

     2: Disabling telnet - it is my understanding that this particular hack is done through the telnet feature although I do not know how do disable it

    Hi. This will only block whoever has access remotely and given the details 

    both your above options are inbound connection ....... changing ports or passwords or even local Ip change every month or so is good security practice 

    but your units build dates and software has outbound connection built in to software and you have no control over that.

    other than not connecting units to internet 

    P2P connection is the main problem ..... setup or not by you ..... the units still setup to a China server and that’s the pathway back to your units..... server is we’re the hack starts....... no port needed no password needed

    dahua have paid a heavy cost over this use of software along with hikvision 

    some of us have had to deal with a lot more than 30 units 

    are all your units at one location or are you talking customers

    I realize i can replace the dvr or all 30 dvrs of the same model that I we have. Was looking for a more technical answer from someone that is familiar with this hack.  Thx

    I am very familiar with the hack problems 

    I did say your not going to like the answer. It is well documented there is no fix ... it is built into the software.  If you still have units working just don’t connect them to the internet. 

    so what technical are you looking for ?

    can you change software .... no ... only updates

    but your system is 4 years out of updates last support from dahua 2017 .... this is why they won’t help

    so what technical information are you looking for on a 7 year old system (2017 last update for 2013 upwards build)

    also using remote apps and pps.... your system comes to end of life using DMSS as dahua will be removing that app this year .... it’s replaced by DMSS plus.. your unit is too old for the change

    2013 to 2017 software build units 1000s got hit ..... not from hack coming into unit .... the unit created the path in and out of your network

    what answer are you looking for

  7. Hi. Not what you want to hear but it’s time for a new dvr

    last update for that version was 2017 ... yours looks like no update since 2015


    your also out of date for all the app updates 

    you can’t repair the early dahua systems 2014-2017 the problem is in the units software..... DVRs are not expensive 

  8. Hi. Can you list your components used 

    your post is a little confusing 

    why can’t you use a small Poe switch or injector for a ip camera

    reason why you can’t find a 24v dc camera is because there all AC or duel 12vdc/24ac

    nano has two Ethernet port just put one into a standard Poe switch

  9.  Hi. Your first thing to do is reset everything back to factory ( your router)

    Factory reset your recorder but don’t connect it to your network till you have your network sorted


    you don’t need a DNS service if you have a static ip BUT you will also need to get intouch with your internet provider and ask them for a new IP address ..... you need this done before you reconnect your DVR

    I’ve tried a number of IP addresses, from the router to one found on the web that advised DNS address Xmeye. 

    This is what has put your network at risk .... you should never add external IP address to your own network except what your isp provided 

    Using a DNS address found on the internet has and will make your network unsecured 

    DNS xmeye .... is only allowing your network a connection to China server....... people think remote view is connection from smart device too DVR ...... in fact it’s .... smart device —— China server ——DVR

    if XInray is a ”legitimate” reseller of HIKvision, when you are ready to order with the part numbers, just asl XINRAY if they can provide the serial numbers of your order to validate with HIKvision , call their support numbers and or look up their website to confirm if the serial numbers are fake or real. International or US or Any country in the world, if it is HIKvision legitimate the serial numbers will tell you the story......simple......

    No such thing as website check for S/N

    ”the serial number of your order to validate”

    Money first .... for order ..... that’s a bit after the fact 

  11. Hi. Your problem is the mounts are power controlled rs485 is data signal 

    a Manchester box con control them box gives a few options on connection 

    problem is you can buy a new full ptz camera for less than a manchester Box and you would need one for each mount


    your other option is amazon .... cheap pan/tilt head

    .. I need an hdmi cable in and an antenna or (I think it is called coaxial) cable out 

    Hi. The first picture above is what you need that’s exactly what it’s for. 
    but how many TVs are you going to be using

    and honestly if you say the best thing is to get rid of the cabling then I would need to figure something out, prefer not to but your the SME.

    Hi. A few years ago ip HD network cameras on cat5 were the best for high resolution cameras

    now HD analog has caught up and runs on coax 2mp upto 8mp (4K) and with sticking with coax you will benefit from hd analog being cheaper

    The style camera I like to stay with are Dome Style.

    Yes you can still buy dome cameras but turret cameras are much better .... smaller and look better ..... domes don’t handle IR very well at night turret cameras remove all problems of dome


    what part of the world are you in

  15. Hi ... yes your right ..... but two reasons why I did not mention it .... first cost .... converting analog to ip is very expensive and limits you 

    second is you have sdi cameras not standard analog cameras which your first picture shows analog which you don’t have ....sdi are hardly used anymore 


    your second picture 

    has not turned anything into a nvr ... in fact it’s a pointless setup ..... cameras out to recorder network connection to router out to nvr ..... only a few recorders would give you this option.... has to be same manufacture

    but nvr is not needed as the analog will have cms for viewing on pc 

    but again your problem is SDI system
