    Hikvision camera HELP needed

    Look at the Hikvision ultra lowlight cameras. Possibly a less wide angle lens would help too, try a lens calculator. https://calculator.ipvm.com/
  4. This may help somewhat. https://www.hikvision.com/ueditor/net/upload/2017-03-10/4c220b3b-0b85-4e1b-a50f-8250efafe8b2.pdf

    Indoor: Turret vs Dome?

    And please, no political statements, lets keep it about cameras.
  6. To add to this, that 12x Dahua zoom mentioned is really a varifocal camera. It is used during setup of the camera. The zoom is usually painfully slow. And bullet cameras attract spiders that spin a web right in front of the camera, setting off the motion detection. I am out probably three nights a week clearing webs from 2 bullet cameras. My 2 dome cameras have no problems with spiders. I keep them under a soffit and rarely have to clean water spots off, only after a very windy rain blows through. Eyeball or turret cameras are supposed to not have those problems.

    Newbie question

    1. Just look for that camera at a reputable dealer you trust. 2. You can download the video from the SD card without removing it, just log into it with your laptop. You can record on demand. You can use wifi without internet, but still may have interference problems.
  9. On my BlueIris setup I have 2 cameras out front. The wide angle watches the driveway and car. The other is a PTZ watching front lawn. When the motion detection of the fixed camera is triggered, the ptz pans and zooms onto the car, getting a better/different view of the car and possible door checker/thief. That is one use for a ptz.
  10. Look for ONVIF device manager from sourceforge, it might see your cameras. This program has a camera reset option in its software.
  11. Cortian explained it much better than I could.
  12. A couple of notes. Make sure your I3 computer has enough processing power to run all of the cameras. A license plate camera will need to be dedicated just for that, and won't be much use at night for other security viewing.
  13. If the garage is on the same power breaker box as the house you could try powerline adapters. Or something like the Ubiquiti nanostation should work.
  14. Usually when you log into the camera with internet explorer it gives you the option to download thje plugin. I suppose that doesn't happen? Have you tried asking the dealer you bought from? Do you have a link to cameras?

    How about something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Hikvision-DS-2CD2442FWD-IW-Wireless-Security-Detection/dp/B074GQBJ3H?creativeASIN=B074GQBJ3H&linkCode=w61&imprToken=T4M1D8o9yVsXaKNQ67xeDg&slotNum=2 It does have night vision though. And yes, you can create a local network with your router, just don't connect router to internet.
  16. Dated, but it still might be useful for you for ideas. https://www.cctvforum.com/topic/51725-need-advice-for-monitoring-pregnant-mare-in-barn/?tab=comments#comment-295733

    Foggy Dome CCTV Camera Night Vision

    MKdark, a plastic dome exposed to sunlight may get foggy/cloudy. Did you see the Hikvision link I posted above about foggy video?
  19. I used pvc pipe underground, but it doesn't have sunlight/ uv resistance, you will need to paint it. Outdoor rated conduit would be better.

    Battery power limits your choices, no one wants to be constantly changing batteries.Take a look at Arlo cameras.
  21. Axis and Panasonic are excellent, but expensive. Hikvision is very good and more affordable, but may be " phoning home" to China. Dahua is good too, and their Starlight 2mp cameras are very good for night vision/recording. Plus, if doing it yourself, you can find a lot of problem solving with online (forum) help. Do a google search for Dahua and Hikvision OEM's and you will see they make a lot of cameras for Swan, Lorex etc.

    It randomly disconnects because of the wifi, not because of it being an ip camera.
  23. I would suggest one of the Dahua or Hikvision ip cube cameras. Not as cheap as those $29.00 amazon or ebay cameras, but very reliable. Wireless is not usually recommended, but okay for non critical uses like keeping an eye on the cats. To observe all or most of the room, look at a 2.8mm lens.

    replacing NVR with PC.

    Look at Blue Iris, about $60. It does have a free trial version.

    Maverick, wifi are isn't very reliable do to possible interference from all these wifi gadgets now a days, They will fail right when you need them. 1 wifi camera might be ok, but the more you add the problems. This looks like a good deal, but you will need to buy a hard drive. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?sdtid=12321619&SID=84fd9180038c11e99fd8dee7c78a78dc0INT&AID=10446076&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&Item=N82E16881183095&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL112218&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-Slickdeals LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&ignorebbr=1&cm_sp= My friend tommy found this one... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HIKVISION-OEM-8CH-4K-CCTV-KIT-DS-7608NI-I2-8P-NVR-4MP-Dome-IP-IR-H-265-HD-Camera/263561965076?var=&hash=item3d5d846e14
