  1.  

    Is motion detection and motion zones part of the camera or the NVR?

    I'm not too sure about this but I would guess it's part of the software on the NVR

     

     

    Correct. It would be a function of the NVR, rather than the camera. Zones can be set up on the NVR to mask off areas that you don't want to be detected. Like if a particular camera is facing the road, and you don't want it recording every time a car passes through its FOV.

    That is incorrect, with these systems the motion detection is done in the camera.


  2. Is it still possible to use DynDNS with a Hikvision NVR?

     

    I have a paid DynDNS account, but members.dyndns.org is no longer a valid URL.

    Hikvision support is no help, they just say they don't support 3rd party applications and recommend using their HiDDNS service instead.

     

    It seems account.dyn.com/entrance/ might be Server Address (instead of members.dyndns.org), but that doesn't work.

     

    I see some discussion in early 2014 at DynDNS about free hostnames no longer supported.

    http://www.dyncommunity.com/questions/37583/no-longer-be-supporting-free-hostnames.html

     

    If anyone is successfully using DynDNS with a Hikvision NVR, please let us know how you do it.

    Thanks,

    just use your router to update the account.


  3. This system only has 8 reviews. 3 of which are paid - they give them the system for free or reduced rate for an "honest" review...yeah right...

    Thankfully this looks like it is a dahua rebranded CVI system so it should be ok..you should be able to do what you want...someone with a dahua dvr can help you.


  4. boogerman may be a charm school dropout, but his advice is almost always right. A forum search for 802.11 poe injector found this one, recommended by him.

    https://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-PoE150S-Gigabit-Injector-compliant/dp/B001PS9E5I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416977530&sr=8-1&keywords=poe+injector&tag=c24m-20

     

    I saw that injector (can you believe I did the labor of searching google to find it?). I was turned off because of some of the bad reviews posted there, however it's not as if I can't send it back for a full refund with no questions asked.

     

    Also, I have favorite words.

     

    Thanks, I'll give that a shot.

    628 reviews, 4.5 start rating...but turned off by a few bad reviews, then proceeds to buy crap on ebay with ZERO reviews. The logic here is outstanding...

    They would not even let me in. These smarter than thou folks should not be helped. He is obviously extremely lazy in addition to being completely technically inept. Didnt even bother search google and asking if something was appropriate.


  6. It is clear you no nothing of CCTV ..... Do you understand what a standalone is do you even know what CIF is ??

    What you are saying can not be done ..... It's not hate and nothing to do about freedom .

    It's about you saying take your 10 year old unit and change the software

     

    It's clear that you know nothing about CCTV, or grammar and spelling for that matter.

    This unit was made in 2012. It's four years old, not ten. Even if it was ten, I'd still put the effort into it. Why? Because I don't want an overpriced digital online only piece of garbage.

    Stop peddling your "superior" product, thanks. The smart people will take it from here.

    CIF - Common Intermediate Format. Mainly used for analogue cameras and teleconferencing.

    This device is not CIF. It is H.264. And yes, it has network connectivity. Had you read a single line of this thread, you'd know that.

    And changing the "software", as you put it?

    Firmware is not software. Firmware is Firmware. If it was software, they'd call it that. It is entirely possible to create firmware for these machines. People have created some extremely useful firmware for old devices, ie; DD-WRT, Tomato, etc.

    But you wouldn't know that, because you're the guy that tosses money at a problem until geek squad comes over and fixes it for you. I wish you good day, sir.

    Please stop hijacking my thread with your useless nonsense. We were doing just fine without your input, thank you.

     

    I've received a message with some RF remote control codes to test out. Tonight I'll pull out the old harmony remote and see if I can't make it work.

    If I get in, I'll copy everything I can from the box and try to download a firmware file. I also have a couple of manufacture websites I'm going to try for a firmware file.

    Its obvious from your rant that you have no clue...What does "digital online only" even mean? I dont think you understand how DVR's/NVR's work. You dont understand CIF or h.264...this unit produces horrific images. h.264 as ZERO bearing on the image quality that the DVR can record.


  7. So you want him to rewrite the software ??? Or how is he going to get an update for a dvr that's over 10 years old..... You do understand this is a standalone ??
    Nope, I don't expect him to rewrite the software, I'm already working on that (though I would appreciate collaboration with others). I'm personally just in it to collect info on whatever targets are available, currently targetting dvrs based on hisilicon stuff. Already got a booting kernel 4.8-rc4, and getting more working each day.

     

     

    Ok we will wait till you have his unit working ... No point anyone else being involved.

     

    But I will say it again .... Not that you are understanding

     

    It's a proprietary CIF over 10 year old ..... It is CIF crap

    Its amazes me how much time folks will waste to save a couple of dollars, but more importantly end up with an inferior CIF dvr....


  8. 802 compliant POE DOES NOT OPERATE OVER 12v you need more than that for any significant distance..because there is attenuation over the line...but you are the expert and know better...wonder why you need help..I read the post, you acted like a total duchebag....you are on your own...If you cannot figure out what you did wrong based on the information your already have, I suggest you hire someone competent.

     

    I wonder if you know what the function of the word 'operate' has when used in a sentence. Your poor, broken grammar may suggest an answer to that. Thank you for poisoning this thread over your butthurt in a different forum. Way to contribute here. Your ego is hilarious. Thanks for all your (non-existent) help. Have a good day.

    When you use a 12v poe injector to try to power a 802 compliant poe camera, seems to me that your are the uneducated one. It does not operate over 12v...that is fact. Your brain is simply too dense....hire a professional...you are incompetent.


  9. If you would have posted this information in the other forum where you acted like a know it all then you could have been helped. This is basic user error.

     

    I never acted like a know-it-all, I simply stated what I understood. That is not to say I was correct. If the guys in the other forum hadn't acted in the age-old immature fashion of "Firstly, you're an idiot. Now tell me what you did and you'll understand why you're stupid" right from the start then things would've gone super-smooth. Come on, the one guy goes out on the web to get a "You're a douche-bag!" image simply to post it and call someone a douche-bag and makes no attempt to help. That is the pot calling the kettle black. The other guy asserts the a-factual statement "poe does not operate over 12v". Anyway, like I said, I'll find the help I need elsewhere. Back to the subject.

     

    So what do you mean by compliant? As far as I understand the only thing that matters in this case is having a passive 12v PoE injection, which means constant power on pins 4,5 and 7,8. This is where you correct me where I'm wrong (without the condescension I experienced in the other forum).

     

    Or, simply link me to an inexpensive PoE injector that will work. That would be the easiest solution.

    802 compliant POE DOES NOT OPERATE OVER 12v you need more than that for any significant distance..because there is attenuation over the line...but you are the expert and know better...wonder why you need help..I read the post, you acted like a total duchebag....you are on your own...If you cannot figure out what you did wrong based on the information your already have, I suggest you hire someone competent.


  10. I'll have to turn the lights off to see if the LEDs come on. I didn't think of that.

     

    I used this PoE injector:

    Feature:

    Over voltage protection,Overload protection.

    Short CUT protection,Over temperature Protection.

    Universal AC Input

    Efficiency: >80% full load typical

    High MTBF and Long life

    Specification:

    Power Input: 110-240V, 50 / 60Hz, 0.5A

    Power Output: 12V 1A

    Data Pin: 1236

    Supply pins: 45 (+) 78 (-)

    Color:Black

    Dimensions:8.4 x 4.3 x 3cm/3.31 x 1.69 x 1.18""(L x W x T)

    Weight:75g

     

    The adapter I tried is a 12v DC .5A (max) supply.

    Your poe injector is not 802 compliant and will not work.

    Your power supply is under powered. You need 12v 1A power supply.

    If you would have posted this information in the other forum where you acted like a know it all then you could have been helped. This is basic user error.


  11. Trying to setup an inexpensive single outdoor security camera for my garage, which is a good distance from our house.

     

    We have a spare PC which we could load an existing copy of BlueIris recording software on. Being that analog outdoor cameras are MUCH cheaper (eg. $15-25) than ethernet/IP cameras ($75-100+), is there an inexpensive way to bring the analog video to the PC (ie. via a USB adapter) with good quality/results?

     

    Here's just one example of a camera I'm looking at:

    https://www.amazon.com/Annke-Security-outdoor-Weatherproof-Housing/dp/B0169YE894/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

     

    but if there is some other inexpensive outdoor camera that could more easily connect to a PC, I'm open ears.

     

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    You are wasting your time. Buy an ip camera- they 50 dollars wont kill you. You will not get a good image from that camera. Annke also post fake reviews for their products on amazon. http://fakespot.com/product/annke-900tvl-cctv-camera-in-outdoor-fixed-home-security-day-night-camera-ip66-weatherproof-metal-housing

     

    You will futz around with a crappy analog camera and a half baked solution that will never work well.

    Also not that if you are using an old inefficient pc, it will be cheaper to buy a replacement pc or simply use an NVR.


  12. Hi,

     

    I have a new Floureon DVR and have a strange problem viewing the cameras when connected to my wifi and 4G.

     

    Ports are forwarded, it did work. I can ping it from my PC which is wired, but when connected to wifi which is on the same network using the same IP range it doesn't see it. I also can't see it outside the network even though the ports are forwarded.

     

    Any suggestion would be great as it is sending me crazy.

     

    Aaron

    First you say "it did work"..did it suddenly stop?

    Generally if you can see using a remote network but not on wifi using the external ip address, then you have a nat loopback issue. Commonly a problem when using router/modem combo units.


  13. Thanks I didn't realize I could use a windows pc + software as a server then simply plug an ip camera into the lan. That really makes life a lot easier so now the next consideration is price for the software so I'm starting to Google options. I asked Blue Iris for a quote for their VB-40 utilizing bandwidth management. This forum is great I'm glad I asked before I purchased. I believe I asked for a quote from vemotion also by the way

    Blue iris is a fixed price http://blueirissoftware.com/purchase/ and has not connection to the vb40

    You dont need the vemotion vb40 for your little setup, thats insane


  14. We have been installing the ip cameras for awhile now and have only had one other customer with length issues. we first used the poe repeater off ebay for about 39.00 each and had good luck with them on the first job. The second job (lesson learned) I measured out 275 ft exactly put in a ped. went another 275 put in a ped. I ran cat 5 e from some place out of texas and it was nothing but problems. My buddy had some surplus wire from a job he did for the amory ( thats all he dose) and it was belden cat 6 nice stuff and we re ran all new wires, new ends, verified all connections. the cameras came right up no problems everyone is happy. So I thought well 2 months later the customer called and said we have a couple cameras out. we went out and checked and unplugged the repeaters checked the poe injectors powered them back up and they worked. 1 month later same thing but a different camera.

     

     

    Now we had 4 cameras down put new repeaters on and got all of them working but wait theres more while we were there showing the customer some new things they could do 1 camera stopped working (no video) another lost connection then reconnected then another went out......wtf

     

     

    I guess Im looking for a poe repeater that's not 496.00 each. I know my wire is good and I think me being a tight butt has cost me alot of time and money. thank you for your help

     

    You do not have troubles if gone for analog systems. But please keep posting the message as there are many guys who keep promoting IP camera system might come to the rescue.

    Analog systems have lots of problem...look at the support forum...his problem is using CHEAP repeaters...same issue as using cheap analog gear your company sells. Maybe he wants analog because he needs redundant edge recording or uses it with a PC based vms like milestone or avigilon. Maybe he records to two servers at two different locations? Ever think that some folks needs better performance than cheap analog DVR's. Its 2016 not 2004. Get with the times.


  15. Which systems does blue iris work with is it any system with onvif support? Is there a list of great software on the forum and what systems they work with?

     

    I have looked at a few dvr's and hybrids but I haven't found any other remote software that allows you to view the camera at a lower quality to reduce bandwidth, besides speco hs software+browser and ht series only in the browser. I settled on the hs series because of the supported software multiclient as it allows me to reduce the quality of all the cameras I am streaming, chopping bitrate more than by half. I just want to make sure I'm not totally missing something choosing a system for the wrong reasons but honestly it doesn't seem like many systems have great bandwidth management tools.

     

    Edited, post thought

    You mentioned NVR but my focus is wired not ip. I have a large metal building it is a headache getting ip to work but a few cables and my problems vanished. I just would love 2 ip cameras that are close to base so I chose the hybrid unit

    IP does not mean wireless!!!! Run ethernet to each camera. Use the SAME ethernet cable to power them (POE).

    Blue iris runs on windows...see the website for a demo. You have extreme control of remote viewing bandwidth.


  16. I am looking to install security cameras around my home. There is a huge difference in a lot of the cameras and prices I am getting. I found a company that will give me 1/3 high sensitivity sony CCD chipset 1080p dome cameras. They are willing to do 5 cameras, dvr, and complete install for $1200. Does anybody know if these cameras are any good? I looked them up on amazon and they can be bought for $40 a piece. Some of these 4 camera systems are selling for over $1000. I am all about saving money for a quality system, but I do not want to buy garbage. Please let me know.

     

    Thank you,

    You dont state the make an model. How can anyone help you? There is WAY more to a camera than the two specs you listed.


  17. Ive got Hughesnet and a Lorex 4 camera ultra wide angle camera system, set it up on a thursday went away for 2 and 1/2 days came home and found that I had used about 4 gig of data on a 20 gig allotment per month, needless to say that I have been on reduced bandwidth for almost a week with 3 days to go. I didnt have it setup right but was able to view live video while away. Until I can get a different internet provider my DVR wont be connected to the internet.

    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.
