  1. Hey, I have existing cat5e and coax cables. Can I use 4k HDCVI cameras on cat5e wiring with baluns?
  2. Hello guys, I have a Hikvision DS-7116HGHI-F1 and i need to replace my HDD. I was looking at the HDD compatibility list : https://www.hikvision.com/en/Support/Notice/Technical-Bulletins/305934334921709 According to their compatibility list, I can use western digital purple drive WD40PURX There is a newer western digital purple drive model: WD40PURZ Any issues using the newer model WD40PURZ? or should I go with the older model.
  3. I am just using 1-3 feet for each camera to wire to reach in a centralized power box. I am not worried about voltage drop, I was just wondering if it is safe to use the thermostat wire? voltage? according to the centralized power box, each channel is getting 2amp per channel.
  4. can I use 18/2 thermostat wire to extend power cable ? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-50-ft-18-2-Brown-Solid-CU-CL2-Thermostat-Wire-64162140/204862204
  5. Hello, I am installing a 12v DC 18ch 40amp distribution box to power up all my IR array cameras and want to know some more information regarding 40 amps. I am guessing 40 amps in the cctv distribution box is different when compared with house electrical? because this is going to be plugged in a 20 amp circuit breaker. Also will be using a 14 gauge power cord for this box, would that be suffice?
  6. Hello, Just bought a Dahua DHI-XVR5216AN-S2 and used my old 3tb hdd (WD30PURX) and it only detects 1397.13G it shows. The DVR claims: Internal HDD 2 SATA Port, up to 8TB capacity. http://www1.dahuasecurity.com/asset/upl ... 171024.pdf I tried formatting in the dvr but still the same. Was using the hdd from a different brand dvr before. Any advice?

  8. Use a spade bit from the outside going in, find a spade bit size hole that would fit all of your cables ( rem the heads are bigger than the cable). Also since the cables are coming out from that low, will you be using conduit pipe?
  9. Hello, I currently lost my hard drive connector (not the sata cable, the other one) off my DHI-XVR5108HS, anyone know where i can get a replacement?

    save your time and headache, dont use them. I would just go with some cat5e and baluns.
  11. Lost my power supply strip for the dvr, It calls for DC12v 4a, Can I use DC12V 5a or is it a concern?
  12. I was actually talking about 3rd party Analog cameras, AHD cameras
  13. Hello, I am deciding to upgrade my DVR to either Hikvision DS-7216HUHI-F2-N or DS-7216HQHI-F2/N. I was wondering if I can use 3rd party (non hikvision) cameras with these DVR?
