    Help with running Hik 4MP camera wireless from 175'

    The customer is using a Netgear R6300 Smart WiFi Router AC1750. I have never used any of the Ubiquity equipment. If I understand this correctly I can put one of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004EGI3CI/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza at the garage, and connect to the router in the house, as long as the NETGEAR has a strong enough output. If it doesn't, then I will have to use 2. Correct?
  2. I need to install a 4MP Hikvision camera in a detached garage that is approximately 175' away from the residence. I would appreciate some recommendations for equipment that doesn't break the bank, but that will work dependably. Thank you in advance!!!!!!! I will be running the camera at the following settings: Video Quality: Highest Frame Rate: 15FPS Max. Bitrate 10,500 Kbps

From His Website http://www.networkcameracritic.com/?p=2617#comments Carl, Network Camera Critic- 1956 – 2015 by networkcameracritic It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that Carl unexpectedly passed away this week.

Thank you for sharing this journey with Carl. Sincerely, Rebecca, Charlie, Nicole, and Dalton
  4. I found another DVR of the same model for an exceptionally good price with a 3 year warranty, and then I am just going to go with a 16 channel NVR. What Hikvision NVR do you recommend?
  5. I am sure they would like to keep the analog, just installed. What about going with a 16 channel encoder, and then using a single 32 channel NVR? I am probably going to go with Hikvision IP so everything needs to be compatible.
  6. I would like to get recommendations on a 16 channel Hybrid DVR. Currently I had a Dahua DH-DVR1604HF-A-E installed, but it is locking up on the initial image for all 16 channels, and after about 5 minutes just reboots. Customer mentioned that he would like to add at least another 8 cameras, with 8 channels available for future expansion. I discussed possible options with the customer, and suggested the possibility of going with a Hybrid 16 channel DVR. Opinions? Should I just try and get the existing unit warrantied, and then go with a separate NVR or go with a single unit? Thanks in advance!!!!!
  7. Yeah, but you are not a licensed installer/ Megapixel user.
  8. You need a camera with BLC.

    IP cams make cpu go to 99% usage

    It all matters what chipset you have on the MOBO like Rory said. You can technically change your chipset drivers, but it is a pain in the ass.

    X2. You can not run low voltage wire/cable in the same conduit as high voltage or line voltage.

    Conventional IR VS While Light

    Exact quote from http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-white-light.htm U must be joking of course White light is visible White light is the name given to what the human eye sees when all the colors that make up the visible light spectrum are combined; the visible light spectrum is made up of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet light, and these colors combined make white lighting. When shined through a prism, white lights are broken into the separate colors of the visible light spectrum. Many people commonly refer to white light simply as "light" or "visible light," and it is this light that makes it possible to view one's surroundings. Several sources of white lights exist including the sun and stars, certain types of lightbulbs, and some lamps.
  12. From what I understand, the UK version of the CNB is different than the US version.
