  1. I have been trying to get an answer to this question forever. Do any of Dahua's ip cameras have an mjpeg stream that you can access via an http url? I see in the cameras secondary stream you can set it up for this, but I can't seem to get an http url to work to actually view the stream. I have heard that the Dahua NVR's can now produce an mjpeg stream with an http url, but I cannot on mine. I'm guessing there is a firmware update that needs to be done. Can anyone confirm if it is possible at this time for either a Dahua camera or nvr to produce an mjpeg stream via an http url? Thanks.
  2. I need a good analog wdr camera for the inside of a store which will be focused on the front door. The front door has bright sunlight coming in, and the store is not that bright so there is a stark contrast in light. I am looking for something inexpensive, but something that will do the job. I have access to all the distributors, so I am open to any brand. Since the store already has small turret domes I would like to keep it uniform if possible. Thanks.
  3. I know, but unfortunately all control systems use an mjpeg feed for video. So that means we need it. Axis, iqeye, panasonic, etc all have a separate mjpeg url feeds. I wonder why Dahua does not?
  4. Dex, I know it depends on the firmware. Does that url you posted produce a snapshot, or live video? I am asking for live video that will feed a control system. Thanks.
  5. I need to find the mjpeg URL for Dahua 2mp bullet and dome cameras to integrate with a control system. Most cameras like axis, iqeye, panasonic, etc all have an mjpeg stream url. Does anyone know the mjpeg URL for Dahua IP cameras? Thanks.
  6. I have a client who is look for almost invisible cameras for their home to monitor the children and keep the decor of the house. I am aware of channel vision in wall ip cameras, and the speco tiny cameras, but are there any other options out there? Thanks.
  7. Thanks Matt. I'm pretty sure the Channelvision cams always output to analog too.
  8. I have several channel vision dome ip cameras. They have both a network connection which accepts poe, and an analog out, which can feed the video to an analog dvr. Right now I have the camera connected to a cisco poe switch and it is working fine. I would also like to connect it to an analog dvr. The camera is currently being powered by poe. Does anyone know if I need to power the camera differently if I connect the analog video out along with the network out, or will the poe power work? Thanks.
  9. Does anyone know what the mpeg stream url is? I know it exists, I just don't know how to find it.
  10. http://Www.synology.com, and according to their website they are onvif compliant. I don't have a contact there. I just started using their nas. They are probably the best in the business.
  11. I have a job which I just took over with a customer that has channel vision ip cameras. He does not have any type of recording and would like to. Any recommendation on a standalone 8ch nvr? I would like to use a synology nas to do dual duty as a sas and nvr, but I don't see channel vision in the approved camera list for synology. Anyone know if it will work? If not, any other recommendations for a stand alone nvr?
  12. I am trying to get my cpcam/avtech 4ch dvr to appear on my control4 system. In order to do this I need to have the url path for the mpeg stream. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks.
  13. Has anyone used the newest model Nuvico dvr's yet? I'm not even sure if they have been released. They are on the website. If so, how do you like them?

    AV Tech vs Dahua

    what do you mean? One is that much better?
  15. I have been using Av Tech for so long, but I see on the forum most are now recommending Dahua hands down. I have never had a problem with reliability with AV Tech. Is Dauhua that much better that I should look into them, and is the price point similar? Thanks.
