    Best BNC connectors ?

    Straight BNC connectors? There are several types, Twist on, Crimp on and compression. My boss uses Twist On. I'd prefer crimp/compression but I can say the twist ons have always worked great.... RG59 Siamese or rg6.... like these https://adiglobal.us/Pages/Product.aspx?pid=GE-3024TP&stb=similarproducts But if it was my house, and you had to use coax... These https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Compression-Klein-Tools-VDV813-607/dp/B008C7ZCN8/ref=sr_1_4?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1534402405&sr=1-4&keywords=bnc+connector If it's your house run cat5 and do a balun.. So you can upgrade to IP a few yrs down the road. If you're going to run analog over cat5, Don't get the cheapest ones. Literally junk Don't buy these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06WW98MYK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Buy these, http://a.co/cZaTOiK There are definitely better ones, We use $10 ones and have never had any issues but hey, The $3 ones on the 2nd link seem to work well too.

    Can we have an HD Analog section?

    This place is so dead I wish I had some admin abilities I'd help out.

    Designing system for my home. ( Looking for help etc... )

    I guess I could update this again. lol New house, same stuff. But now I install cctv so I have more knowledge and access to rebranded Hikvision equipment. I have 6 old 3MP IP Hik vision Bullets and a cheap china dahua turret. I just pulled an 3MP Analog system out of a guys house I put in last year... He upgraded. Been thinking about installing it and using it as a 24/7 redundant system to fall back on if my IP setup doesn't pick up motion for some reason. But that sounds like over kill.... I might sell it and put that towards newer better IP cameras.... Not sure yet

    Hey, Yeah but as a dealer & installer maybe I could liven it up a little bit... I'd like for this forum to be more active, in all the subs... Still can't get ahold of anyone to let me in though.

    You ever get access? I've PMed mods and haven't gotten anything back...
  8. Do you happen to know about the 1012vr? My cable has 10 wire/colors from the board into the cable where it's cut. We install these, but Ive never known the pinout. I can try contacting our distributor. Their just Rebranded Hikvisions btw....

    Im posting in here so I don't have to make a new thread. I don't see this subforum anymore. If it's private, who do I need to talk to about joining. I've been working for a security company for just short of a year now installing Residential/Commercial Burg Alarms, Fire Alarms, CCTV and Access Control so I'd like access to the CCTV portion. Appreciate it.
  10. So I have some Hikvision 3MP bullet cameras. I think their the DS-2CD2032 Chinese versions but everything has been fine and I got them in english. I bought them back in like 2013. Maybe 2014. Is there any update I could do to expect better performance/Image or anything. I plan on upgrading the cameras but I figured I don't want to be missing out on the ones I have. Thanks
  11. Just picked up that computer. Im not sure I'll be able to get around to setting it all up today. I may have to wait until later this week. Definitely looking forward to it though.
  12. Okay thank you, Seriously. Great to know. I'll give that a shot!
  13. Alright thanks So my 3rd link is a no go for $150ish It sounded promising In case it doesnt work. Here it is. http://nashville.craigslist.org/sys/5550595103.html
  14. Alright thanks. I think this one might be worth it... It ends in 6hrs.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-EliteDesk-800-G1-USDT-Desktop-PC-i5-4590S-3-0GHz-4GB-320GB-DVDRW-Win-7-USED-/391473128470?hash=item5b259de416:g:e08AAOSwmtJXUKKK It's an I5 4590, I have Blue Iris 4 so Id install that on it. And throw in a 4tb purple drive... Theres also someone locally selling some refurbed, but its an i5 2400. I'll have to look at bench tests of the cpus. It atleast has a gigabit ethernet port http://nashville.craigslist.org/sys/5614052694.html THIS LOOKS GOOD http://nashville.craigslist.org/sys/5550595103.html
  15. Alright thank you. I was using BI4 on my tower, its an I7 930 with a radeon 5850 1gb ddr5 gpu and the 6 cams maxed the cpu out. That tower will be able to handle 8 of the 3mp hiks I'm using? Thank you for the quick answer and help. I really appreciate it. Edit: Something like this isn't what your talking about it is? http://nashville.craigslist.org/sys/5620268578.html
