  1. You are not isolating anything this way...understand that the NVR is NOT isolated on the network. Why are you so concerned about isolating the cameras but dont care about the NVR itself, its just as prone to security issues as a camera...

    Boogie relax

    I think OP just want to separate traffic

     

    Sorry about my ambiguity and confusion in my first post that was trying to convey my desire to not flood my busy home network with the load from newly installed high resolution cameras. Thanks for the help here from all!

    If that is the case, my earlier response is correct....as long as the NVR and cameras are connected to the same switch no traffic passes through the router...this is basic networking 101...the fact that level 1 tech support folks dont understand that is not surprising to me..


  2.  

    Now you have completely changed your issue from the original post. In the op your issue was the camera "load"...

    If you have a security concern about the camera why dont you have the same concern about the NVR? its not adding up..

    If you have want to completely isolate the traffic you will need a switch and router that support Vlan...

     

    Almost all HIK NVR have 2 NIC cards

    One for cameras

    second for LAN

    and your traffic completely separated

     

     

    Exactly what I had hoped for, thanks so much for the reply! Another reason to go with HIK.

  3. I've talked to multiple resellers, TechPro Security Systems and Lorex Tech Support and both gave me the same description of how their NVRs could be connected. They both stated that you home run to POE ports on the NVR (isolateing the traffic off the home LAN) or use and external POE switch that would have to be plugged into the Router first and the NVR attached to the router as well. Without a managed switch, my understanding is that this exposes the network to the traffic of the camera system which they agreed with. TechPro even broke down the cost of the, admittedly lower these days, managed switch VS the cost of additional cabling. Cost is not the issue here, its access for me and single cable drop to the limited NVR location.

    "A Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) uses an Ethernet switch to partition a physical network, thereby creating distinct broadcast domains. VLANs are especially useful when an IP Surveillance network shares the same network infrastructure with other functions or applications, such as a corporate data network. By assigning the IP Surveillance traffic to a separate, distinct, high-priority VLAN, the traffic is assured to pass through the network swiftly and securely."

     

    My concern would be less for the camera data priority than hosing the home network, a concern the TechPro brought to my attention.

  4. Does anyone make an NVR that allows an external POE switch to route directly to the NVR and not the router? It looks like to me that the only way to isolate your home network from the camera load is to home run all cameras to the POE switch built into the NVR or use a managed switch.

     

    Sure would be nice to be able, in my install situation, to home run all of the cameras to a POE switch and then from the POE switch to the NVR and have the NVR have a second port to the router firewalling the traffic from the POE/Camera load. Does anyone make and NVR that will do this or am I missing something? Thanks!

    Every NVR will do this, that is the premise of networking...as long as the nvr and cams are connected to the same switch and the switch is then connected to a router, no traffic will pass through the router unless you are viewing on another device..


  5. I have setup my Hikvision DS-2cd2032-1 camera in SADP and get the live view. When I try to set it up in BI, I can't see the live view. I get the 8000007a error. I have set my server port to 8383 and http port to 1083 in SADP and BI.

    Looking for some help.

    Thanks,

    Skip

    Blue iris does not use the hikivision server port, it uses the rtsp port.

    or use find inspect for the onvif profile.

     

    Thanks for the reply. I have set the rtsp port in sadp and in Bi to 544 and still get no feed. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Skip

    have you double checked the user name and password? log into the camera via browser and check the port settings...blue iris works perfectly with hikvision cameras so you have something set incorrectly...what have you selected from the dropdown menu as you camera?


  6. First of all, I'd say congrats for entered new home.

     

    In fact, the 4mp camera would be much better for your outdoor or indoor otherwise you should go to an expert that they are installing both types of cameras like no wifi & wired system.

    Please stop giving advice when you simply dont know what you are talking about. It benefits no one.

  8. Hi and thanks for the quick reply!!

     

    We currently have 8 outdoor cameras. We are probably going with 6 outdoor and 2 indoor.

    To run ip cameras you will have to rewire with ethernet..(some analog installs use ethernet with baluns at the end so you might get lucky...otherwise, if money is a real issue, look at dahua tribrid NVR's with 2mp starlight CVI cameras..they can use your old coax wiring...


  9. Can you help? I am trying to locate a low-light (NB NOT IR illuminated, zero-glow video surveillance camera. It must have wireless connectivity - I do not want an IP camera only one which will communicate with a DVD recorder base-station. I want something in the $40-60 price range. I'm not trying to count anyone's spots or freckles, just for the image to be sufficient to make a reasonable ID in dim moonlight to a range of say ~30 feet. I need you to provide me with a brand-name and model number, even supplier details would also be useful. I might even consider a used unit if the trader is a reputable one. Thanks for your help.

    Lol, when you find a unicorn, please let us know.


  10. I'm looking to upgrade a 4mp camera running on a Q-See 8816 Nvr 16 channel security system, preferably to a 4k or better camera if possible. I see some 8mp Dahua cameras on ebay (hfw4800e and hfw4830e)..would those work with this Nvr, and/or are there other options?

    What is the 4mp lacking? Higher res is not always better...


  11. God that is garbage...replace with 1080p...start doing your research.

    Thank you for being zero help. Glad you found the time in your day to make this post.

     

    If anyone has something intelligent to add, please feel free to join the conversation.

    It was the PERFECT amount of help. You bought a low end garbage 600tvl system in 2017....you failed to do even the most basic low level research and are therefore in the predicament your are in....there are literally hundreds of threads discussing various camera/nvr options...this time dont be as lazy as you were last time.


  12. At that price point, it doesn't really matter. Go to amazon, and find cameras that fit your price range that have a decent review.

     

    If you are doing WIFI, you need a WIFI router, power to all the cameras (a 12V power supply), and internet service at the site. It needs to be a reliable internet service since your PC will most likely not be on site at a rental property.

     

    Not sure what the rules are in CA, but in the US, landlords can access the house for maintenance. Extension cords and power supplies in attics can be dangerous if not done correctly.

     

    I suggest you re think your strategy overall. I am not clear on what you are trying to do. It sounds like you are trying to monitor a car you park on the street at a rental property, but you don't live there.

    Well, I am renting so I want to spend less and put as less as possible drill holes.

    Please tell me, which one should I purchase from the two links above.

    I appreciate your help and time.

    Sincerely.

    Both garbage...it seems you dont really need cameras...spend your money on dinner..


  13. about 300' is usually considered the max for POE. Personally I like IP systems over coaxial. There are all kinds of ways to deal with really long runs, but since you're right at the limit, Id just try the cat6. If you have problems you can add a POE ethernet extender somewhere along the run (assuming thats possible).

    You like IP over coax? Really? What are you talking about?? Do you know how much it costs to use converters on both ends?

    Its a last resort..

    300f can be done easy..the technical limit is 100 meters or 328f...you can often go much longer with quality cable.


  14. Hikvision's IVM-4200 software is unreliable for me. It will stop recording randomly, or the recorded video is just one frozen frame, etc. Shame because the software uses very little CPU compared to the others I've tried. I've searched around and all I can find are half-jacked programs.

     

    All I want is: a program that will reliably record at least 2 cameras continuously in file size blocks which I can set. Bonus if it can start up with windows and begin recording automatically.

     

    Thanks a big ton.

    milestone essentials is free for up to 8 cameras.


  15.  

    I use this too and love it, except for their seemingly chronic issues around not being able to keep track of the correct time.

     

    So did you get your free license yet for posting this?

     

     

    I noticed the time issue as well when I first set it up. It seemed to have corrected after the second trial period but in either case I can always have an OSD display manually from my IP Cameras or just review when the file was created/modified to get a more accurate time stamp.

     

    Not sure on the free license yet, waiting on a reply. I can update after I receive it.

    Are you saying that you were offered a free license for your review?


  16. Hello. Consider setting both those camera channels back to default to undo any adjusting that might have been attempted to get back to square one. The first camera, you might want to remove its hood if it is removable or just sliding it back. It is indoors and would be OK without it. Also, angling it down so the ceiling is not so much in its view might help with the wash out during the day and the halo it is getting in the dark.

     

    The hood could be a problem? Maybe reflection?

    The problem is garbage cameras...
