    How Not to Plant a Roadside Bomb

    No children died in that video....it is funny when terrorists die..with respect to Sir Flannel's comment, there is not way those guys were trying to remove anything...that is not how its done.
  2. Well... The 2CD3132 is not a PTZ camera, so do not expect it to move much, no matter how hard you click on the arrows. You might want to take the camera (with your hands), and point it wherever you want it to look at. These posts are cute...pop up on various forums every once in a while...

    Help with type of Coax to use

    RG59 Or u can use Solid Copper Cat5 or 6 with baluns which will be useful if you ever decide to upgrade to ip cameras so you dont have to rerun cable.... http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=110&cp_id=11011&cs_id=1101101&p_id=6878&seq=1&format=2

    help please regarding my wireless cctv camera

    Try different wifi channels...try different router...look into powerline adapters or if you want to solve your issue, hire someone to run cable...the pros can do it no problem...about 100-150 per run, all your problems will be solved and you can use better cameras than you have now. What brand cameras do you have?

    help please regarding my wireless cctv camera

    Wifi=problems...run cable to the camera....you can try changing the wifi channel on your router use wifi analyzer mobile app to check what channel has least interference.
  7. You have a good NVR and you are using a bottom barrel junk camera? You are lucky that the video comes through....in general if you want 100% compatibility get cameras from the same manufacturer as the NVR.

    help / advice needed...

    Probably a speco dvr..find out the brand of the dvr then see if they have a player online you can use.. these links are dead but contact the companies and maybe they could give you a download link to a player. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23602

    New member trying to find a CCTV solution

    Magnetic sensors do not need to sound an alarm, they can do anything you want them to do, turn a small indicator lamp on and off etc...regardless, it seems like you want a camera...quite frankly you are under budget for this and it cannot be done reliably with your budget.
  10. maybe its the system...try to figure out why its crashing...
  11. Wait you are using pss to monitor 550 DVRs? at once?

    New member trying to find a CCTV solution

    There is no connection between this forum and malware. A magnetic sensor will tell you whether the gate is open or closed..just like your alarm system detects whether a door is opened or closed. That link was for illustrative purposes use google to find the product near you or something similar. You will not get IR light to go 100m coming from a camera...also you will no need a serious zoom lens to get that far a view...You will need to run cable to get the camera closer or just use a sensor... Again the camera is a poor choice for your situation. You are better off with a device that will alert you without you having to go check.

    New member trying to find a CCTV solution

    There are many ways to do this with a camera but its overkill for your application..You could just use a magnetic sensor at the gate...if you want something more advanced try this http://www.amazon.com/GoGogate-02W-Control-Garage-Opener-Smartphone/dp/B00MOJXF16/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1410458344&sr=8-8&keywords=gogogate you can check from your phone and even get alerts if its left open for too long.

    You need to compare apples to apples. I dont care how good the installer is the 960h system will not produce as good as a picture as a 1.3mp camera...it cant. This is assuming the cameras are both good quality cams. The only installers who say look at analog are those that make more money installing analog or dont have the skill to install ip. Most also run rg59 which makes it more costly to upgrade in the future...
  15. Note, some dome cameras cannot be mounted on a wall, only on an even horizontal surface (unless using a large mount)...For wall mount you need a 3 axis dome. Domes also pose more of a problem with IR reflection. Bullets are not as good looking and also less vandal resistant. Bullets are much easier to aim. You may want to look at a turret like this http://www.hikvision.com/en/us/Products_show.asp?id=9125 No ir reflection, you can mount it anywhere you want. 2.8 will be a wider view but less detail than 4mm...
  16. You can upload to a remote ftp server if you wanted...but realistically no one is looking all over your house for your network drive...just set up a network drive in a remote room or in a closet and you are done..cloud its just bogs down your connection...You can also get a cheap hikvision NVR for a couple hundred and hide that and set it to record 24/7 as a backup if you really wanted. Burglars dont spend an hour in your house looking for NVR's...
  17. You can use any device that functions as a bridge...http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-WR702N-Wireless-Repeater-150Mpbs/dp/B007PTCFFW/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1413846796&sr=1-4&keywords=tplink+mini You can also use a power line adapter... They will not have poe use an injector http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-PoE150S-Gigabit-Injector-compliant/dp/B001PS9E5I/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1413846873&sr=1-1&keywords=poe+injector ...although i believe i saw a poe powerline device mentioned around the forums...
  18. Dont...spend a bit more and get hikvision...you can get the 2032 or the 2CD2332 for about 90 bux ...what NVR? you are going to throw your money down the toilet..
  19. Which camera are you looking at, what nvr are you looking at?...most good cameras support POE. Some do not. You should get cameras that support poe. Tell us which cams and how many and we can recommend a poe switch. Do not get no name crappy cameras or you will just be back complaining of problems..

    If you are not technical get someone to do it. Do not let them install an analog system. Make sure the system is IP and at least 1.3mp a camera.

    Two CCTV systems... I network

    WARNING: you need to remove your ip address from this your post or else anyone can log into your system. Even if you didnt post your ip address, there are tons of folks who use scan the net for unsecure connections like yours. Understand that IP cameras are not secure your password is almost meaningless. You need to be using a VPN. You dlink is on port 80 (that is the default port when no port is added to the ip address) You need to put the other system on another port, say 8585. Then when you login you would use your ipaddress:8585 (ex.
  22. I agree, as stated in the OP I am not planning on purchasing Foscam or Dropcam. I am leaning towards Axis M1054 cameras but also looking at Hikvision & Dahua. Would love to hear from people who have had hands on experience with both. .. Hikvision has a comparable 2432 cube camera, that is 3mp vs the 720p on the 1054. The hikvision also has and sd card slot which the axis does not have. The axis uses a white led for nightvision, when it detects motion the led illuminates vs IR on the hikvision...there are pros and cons to both... The 1054 also does not support wireless..although i would not run the hikvision on wifi either if you want to use full resolution. Finally the hikvision can be had for 1/3 the price of the axis...its a no brainer...
  23. Are you searching this forum? Or google..look through the posts here. Forget about dropcam unless you want a very basic camera and monthly fees....a camera with a dummy tax built in.
  24. Dropcam is a monthly service and you are locked into their system. Foscam is junk, dont even consider it. If you want something decent at reasonable prices look at the hikvision or dahua 3mp cameras...Hikvision and dahua are also rebranded at costco as swann and qsee respectively. There are tons of posts on these cams and systems...start reading...

    Another What camera PTZ?? to choose thread :-)

    The first camera linked by dan732 is not an ip camera...just fyi...I agree that you should be looking for ip cameras. Dahua has some nice 2mp ip cameras in the 600 dollar range. Dahua SD59212S-HN 12x Zoom http://www.dahuasecurity.com/products/sd59212s220s230s-hn-581.html Also, ask yourself do you really need ptz? are you going to set up sensors to ptz upon movement? Why not get two fixed cameras instead? What are you going to be monitoring? Whatever you do, if this is a new system, you should be using an IP camera that is at the very least 1.3mp...not any analog stuff that is generally rated using TVL...
