  1. Either someone else has access to your DVR or you were watching the cams A LOT...that is an insane amount of data to use..something is wrong.
  2. Why would you ever need that kind of look back? You likely dont have the budget for it...
  3. You better refund that money and run.

    avoiding losses over length of cable

    what type of system? model? is it ip? or hd over coax?

    Positioning of CCTV Cameras - Impossible ask?

    You need a lens with a narrower focus...
  6. Are you going to sit there and manipulate the ptz? Scanning is useless, now you have random partial shots...useless, and likely cause the failure of the ptz mechanism.
  7. Very complex issue....hmmmm, why dont you get the LOCAL number to your police department???
  8. Its important to buy from a US retailer who sells US region cameras...many sellers sell china region cameras that are in english but will brick if you update firmware. Look at B and H photo.
  9. way overpriced for a home install...look at hikvision and dahua cameras.

    Hik iVMS-4500 won't connect inside LAN

    Did you not see the above post? You will need to setup a second device on the app using the local ip and use that when at home. Or get rid of your router/modem combo.

    There, in this forum, guys who are obsessed with IP cameras, from Hik or Dahua, even though no way to get direct help from them. You do not need to get mad against them. But remeber always these guys do not help you out when you are in trouble. You do realize that the OP was talking about IP cameras right? Guess your chinese to english translator is not working properly.... You also realize that you can buy BOTH analog cameras and IP cameras from places that provide end user support..right? One thing we do know is that buying from your company or the random ebay/ali crap you recommend will never come with support.

    Will be cheaper to have someone run the cable for you...remember that even if it works most of the time, Murphy's law will bite you..

    yeah, i'm just looking for a rather basic setup with decent view...like i want to be able to see a person walking up the driveway...or coming down the side of the house...at this point i'll be lucky if i see a truck coming up either lol..best case scenario would be...be able to make out license plates or faces clearly btw if none of this works any suggestions on another type of camera system i should get? i was thinking of - https://www.amazon.com/Amcrest-Security-Weatherproof-Cameras-Transmit/dp/B00PMEG8YQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472869545&sr=8-1&keywords=security+camera+kit#customerReviews not sure if it's good or not but amazon #1 seller o.0 with 1500 reviews and seems legit o.0 idk though. That is a garbage analog system that will give you terrible images...its 2016, 720p should be the LOWEST resolution considered...look at a 1080p system. IF you keep trying to "save" money by buying a garbage low end system, you will keep netting the same results..there a many threads discussion good packages out there.

    Grow up. It's a mistake to pull others down .... In your posts .... Well not posts it's more like reading war and peace but still with a lot of mistakes so your not that perfect. Dont really need your advice.....this guy came in here trashing proper advice with nonsense. Hes getting what he deserves...if I offend you, you are welcome to ignore my posts.

    1080p IP Sensor Types

    Its not a little more, its 328...that is more than 200 percent greater than your stated 100 FEET. And when you state a little more than 300 you prove again that you are simply uneducated. Look up meters and learn their size. I never said anything about encryption. I am explaining to your novice mind that a camera streaming 100 percent of the time cannot have packet loss or the image will be corrupt....there simply is no wifi that is as reliable as ethernet. In a large public place, its all more important to have cameras that cannot be jammed with a cell phone app. You are a danger to your customers. You also misrepresent the cost of cable..."****loads" is not appropriate when you can run a basic house for 100 dollars (a high quality 1000 foot solid copper roll).... Also you are NOT an engineer. An engineer would not "mix up" feet and meters...and call it a bit more...a meter is more than 3 times a foot.

    Please tell me how someone who calls themselves a professional installer doesn't now the proper spec for Ethernet or claims that COPPER wire has a limited life span...I doubt your entire story...

    You understand that we are talking about cameras here not laptops? You dont seem to have any experience with ip cameras. Yes, laptops and phones can easily accommodate and make up for packet loss..They also are not streaming 100 percent of the time..LEARN...STUDY...WOW A true green novice. I may have given you too much credit..They shouldn't let you carry the screws....wait in the truck. I did state that we do Surveillance as-well. And basically any IP device goes by the same principals. An IP light switch, thermostat, anything. It works the same. If you have a cheapy camera, you're going to have a bad time. If the antenna has a low Dbi your gonna have a bad time, if your access point is inferior well, your gonna have a bad time. Networking is networking and equipment is equipment. We set up wireless cameras from axis, they work fine. If you know wireless it works fine. An engineer can take the same camera and access point that you had a bad time with, and make it work with little to no effort. I feel bad for your customers...hopefully you are using the edge storage available on those cameras....It seems like you guys have no clue...no worriers...eventually a new competent contractor will clean up your mess. Every statement you made in your original post proves you are incompetent. Not knowing the basic specs for ethernet range? Come on. You are clueless. Sad really. Hopefully you didnt install wifi cameras at fenway and yacht clubs in Massachusetts ...its now a huge security risk...

    EVERYTHING you posted here is wrong -you claim its your "two cents" but its not even worth that, it has negative value and lots of it. If you work for a company that installs wifi you need to be fired. Lets touch on some of your mistakes. 1) You are confusing meters with feet. Ethernet is good for 100 METERS. Thats 328 feet. In fact, that is only the spec maximum and folks routinely get more than that. I have never encountered a home where this is an issue. 2) You are confusing a camera that requires a 100 percent stable connection and zero packet loss or the image will be smeared with your wifi that you setup for a smartphone/table..big difference. 3) yes of course cameras can be defeated, all you need is a mask...but the user can still see what is going on and alert authorities. If used with an alarm system or pir motion and even software with decent analytics. 4) Copper cable does not have a "lifespan" it will certainly outlive you and me. Its not fragile unless you are using crap cca cable...Once installed its good for life...That is really the dumbest statement you have made. You know that phone lines power lines in homes use copper cable right? When was the last time you had to replace it? 5) You are confusing point to point line of sight wireless with standard wifi...Rookie..wow.. You are obviously the guy who carries the screws around for the installer....

    my father said he bought the cam's for like 250? is that considered "low cost"? this is the same unit on amazon that he got https://www.amazon.com/Annke-Wireless-Security-Surveillance-White-Better/dp/B019QCICNE should i return the unit? i don't see the point of purchasing a night vision hd cam...that can't see anything at night. return the unit...annke posts fake reviews...see fakespot...its garbage.
