    Installation & Labor Price

    You want 75+ an hour and you don't have the first clue as to what you are doing? I am also guessing you don't have the proper tools nor insurance to be operating a business, there is more to it than just showing up and sticking cameras on a wall.

    dvr h264 and dyn dns

    192.168.x.x is a class c private non routable network, you would not be able to reach it from the internet. Also ensure your security settings allow login from the internet, this is sometimes blocked as a security setting.
  3. You havent set the DVR to use a static IP have you? If you have your routers DHCP will not assign one to your DVR.

    need help designing a man room system

    If you just want to stream it get a camera and connect it to the RCA port on your TV (The yellow port) If you want to pause and rewind and all that fun stuff you will need a DVR, you have to be able to record to rewind.

    You don't need to be in the DMZ you need to setup port forwarding, which is more secure, the DMZ is just an open area which removes the need to port forward.

    My Camera Renovation

    Really nice, did you run the conduit yourself?

    In all my years working computer forensics and installing CCTV I have never had someone tell me something has been digitally deleted. Its either deleted or its not. Now someone may tell me it has been overwritten but that is a different story. Recovery is usually possible, depending on the operating system and the file system in use on the drive.

    Running 1100' of power for 12v DC Camera

    You have to remember DC and AC are not interchangeable, you can't use a 28V AC adapter to supply power for 12V DC.

    Port forwarding trouble help

    Just a tip don't use port 86 for web viewing, its a registered port, which means another service may attempt to use it by default. You will probably never see an issue its just bad practice to use registered ports for applications other then the registered ones.

    Best Angle

    I am guessing the cameras you have now have a 1/4 or 1/3 lens, try finding a 1/2 lens this will give you a wider viewing angle. Should be able to find something around 70$.

    Viewing CCTV over cloud

    Sounds like what you are referring to is remote viewing, where one can view the DVR from either a computer or a mobile device, this is not the same as cloud storage of the recorded data. Are you looking for a cloud storage solution or a DVR/NVR which offers remote viewing?

    Newbie help with camara placement on 2 story home

    The answer to your question will come down to what does the customer want? I have had customers which say run the cable outside along the wall because they want to reduce cost, and I have had other customer who want all the wiring run through the walls because they want it to look nice.
  13. A product key which has been activated over 400 times for a current operating system sounds like a volume license key, one which is meant to be used by a corporation not sold to individuals. I stopped using new egg because of their crazy stupid shipping cost, and the fact they don't offer a business to business service in Canada.
  14. How about providing a picture of the actual connectors?

    Dash Cams? Suggestions

    Most police forces use the Panasonic Arbitrator system. If you have money to spend go for it

    Help with IP System

    You can use something like procmon from the system internal toolkit. The built in task manger will also show you what is eating up CPU cycles. I have never tried to get different cameras to work under axis camera companion.

    Avigilon may be a very good fit for your needs.

    POE, Switch, and power line adapters

    To me it sounds like you are only saving yourself 1 cabling run, from the switch to the router. Would it be that difficult to run a single run? Also I second the use of a wireless bridge as opposed to the powerline adapters, I highly doubt they will be anywhere near gigabit speeds.

    Problem in my CCTV

    Sounds like a lose connection on one of your cables. If it happens to all the cameras at the same time I suspect its your BNC to RCA cable.

    Please recommend: <$1000 system

    Costco usually has some IP packaged systems around that price range. Who many cameras are you looking to get? At less then a grand you are either going to get a decent DVR or NVR with a couple cameras or a semi decent DVR with 8-16 semi decent cameras in a package.
  22. The first picture looks like the honeywell entry level systems, MindTwist makes a good point, no one uses the controls, and I would assume they want to go for their own look.

    Help with IP System

    I would love to see a process dump to see what is actually eating away at the CPU.

    System Recommendations for a Jewelry Company

    Talk to your insurance company first. Ilkie I have never heard of an insurance company telling a company or home owner they are not allowed to install a CCTV system. From an installer point of view I carry failure to perform insurance from an insurance company so if his jewelry store were to be robbed and my install failed for some reason I am covered, but its up to me to have that insurance, not the customer.

    More for the Installation Hall of Shame

    WELL SAID, the whole point of a junction box is to weatherproof the connections and to make them accessible so the camera can be positioned and focused without the need to move it again. A IP Junction box is our service access point. Unfortunately, some cameras just don't look right with a junction box next to them, i.e those little eyeball domes, and they have a deep ring that replaces their base and creates space for the connections, but there are two things wrong with that too. Firstly it's impossible to access the connections to target the camera and the damn things cost £10 each which is in some cases 30% the original cost of the camera. Finally and here's the killer, they aren't water resistant in the least. They seem like an poorly thought-out jerk-reaction to an installer issue. Whichever MORON thought these out, has never had to install a CCTV camera in their life. ( the far right one is mine) To make these work FOR you, you still need to install conduit and a junction box near the camera to make the connections accessible and thats if the lead from the camera is long enough. On some cheap cameras they are often not long enough to go anywhere except in a JB directly next to the camera YUK looks awful. I see this all the time when people want to install bullet camera outside, they want it wall mounted and they want me to shove the connections in the hole in the wall allowing the cabling to enter the house. I have never done this and never will, seen many people ruin the pigtales from the camera doing this. I usually end up mounting the bullet directly to the junction so they it is sort of hidden behind the camera.
