  1. Wow, I never thought I would see the day that Mobotix got in line with the rest of the industry. It would appear that they have a complete line of cameras that support both h.264 and ONVIF! Is this a sign of the apocalypse? https://www.mobotix.com/eng_US/Products/Camera-Line-Mx6?
  2. L-com sells bulkhead style connectors, you can pick up a standard 2RU blank plate for a network rack and drill the holes in it in an hour or two. Just lay out a nice grid and maybe make yourself a little jig to keep them even.
  3. If you never plan to use the digital zoom features of your camera then you are correct, if you plan to use zoom of any kind you will need as much resolution as you can get.

    Do POE cameras with Motion Detect need a 2nd cable?

    Normally motion detection is sent as data, the alarm outputs on the camera are generally to trigger a physical device (relay, light, chime, etc.). Same with the alarm inputs on the NVR, they are generally to receive a signal from a physical device.

    Thermal Cameras

    Lots of folks! Mobotix, R-Vision, Keysight, Fluke, InfraTech, Rayheon, and a few others I am sure I forgot.

    What kind of access control and what is your time frame for completion?
  7. I am fairly certain this is what Multicast is made to do, but I have very little experience with making it work.

    HELP - Former Police ANPR cameras

    That is a very specialized camera, unless you wanted to do ANPR stuff at a gate or driveway you might be better off either donating them back to the cops or putting them up for sale.

    Check with L-com (http://www.l-com.com/) they have all kinds of stuff like that.

    IP Camera Problem

    It is possible that the cable run is at or beyond 100 meters, that will cause all sorts of weird issues.

    Adding filters to cameras

    CS to 37 MM??? I am not sure that would work.

    Camera Video Backups?

    How much video will each bus have to transfer per day? I am assuming the video only records while the bus is on, right? I would think FTP might be the easiest way to get everything moved, but I would have to do some experimentation to see how it handles the video for each new day. That sounds like a fun project, but you are going to need a sizable NAS unit! Not to mention that wireless transfer from 30 different nodes is going to take a TON of bandwidth. Have you laid out your wireless network yet? If I had to do this on the cheap, I would be looking at the QNAP TVS-EC2480U-SAS-RP-16G with an expansion unit (REXP-1620U-RP). On the conservative side, this is going to cost $25,000 with spare hard drives and appropriate software. My biggest concern with a project like that would be getting solid wireless signals in the worst possible conditions (rain, fog, obstructions, etc.) so that the transfer never fails.

    CCTV wires

    Did you look on the Super Circuits website for support information?

    2x PTZ Cameras

    If you are referring to the RS-485 port the answer is yes. Each camera gets addressed at the camera and you just put the wires for both in your RS-485 port. Make sure you match your settings int he DVR and on the camera. If your data speeds are not the same it will either act crazy or not work at all.
  15. I cannot help you with this but what are your concerns? Unless your camera network is quite large this is generally not an issue.
