  1. Want to add sound recording to my ip camera.

    Camera has a red and white connector - which one is for sound coming to the DVR ?

    Since I am using cat5/6 cable, do I need any other connection from the camera or a separate audio line ?

    I may do one way recording - coming in not going out - but planning for outgoing is good.

    Any other info I need to know except legal.

  2. I have Dahua and Hikvision NVR's.

    Both email alert stopped working on Jan 28, 2019.

    Test email indicated "DNS Failed"

    Using and alt

    stmp.gmail at port 587

    Ping on my computer and it is working fine.

    Looks like there is a problem in my network somewhere or the email alert setup needs to be changed.

    Tried other email accounts with the same problem

  3. Problem identified - a virus in the GUI interface - not in the os


    If the nvr is started up going through GUI wizard, then the virus takes control of the nvr and not allowing any change or configure.


    If the nvr is started up and EXIT the GUI, then the nvr is normal with user control


    Working with Hikvision R&D to fix the issue.

  4. Some features I am looking for in a smart NVR without POE:

    No hard drive

    Must support 2 HD up to 6TB each

    Two audio

    Must handle high frame camera 60fps

    Facial detection - IMPORTANT

    ANPR - license plate (from a license plate camera) - IMPORTANT


    Must support ONVIF, Dahua and Hikvision cameras

    NIGHT motion detection or line crossing

    16 to 32 channels

    English version that is upgradeable

    Any other features suggestion welcome

    Price approx 600 USD

  5. My NVR is pre-populating:

    Device name

    Camera name

    with ++++++++++


    Therefore I am not allowed to access or select my cameras.

    Motion detection email is from ++++++++++++++

    But that is not what I have in my email setup.


    I did a factory restore then

    I upgraded to the new version 4 and still the same problem.


    Thinking it is a virus.

    How to fix ?

  6. I have Dahua and Hikvision NVR.

    Both are on the same network and configured the same and working with gmail.

    Last week, Hikvision stopped sending email and cannot figure out why.


    If it relates, the same time paperport scanner software will not start indicating that there is no default email client. But I do have outlook as the default.

    Paperport is x86 and outlook is x64.

  7. I am using Hikvision nvr and smart ptz.


    Motion detection is set for 0000 - 2400

    It is being triggered day and night but I am getting only dat time pictures.


    No motion detection pictures night time.



    I am not emailing it and the buzzer is turned off. Just want to capture day and night pictures.


    Recording is set for 24 hours.

  8. Hikvision digital ptz takes 3 pictures for each motion detected.


    1. Can I change this count to 1 or 2

    2. Can I change the timing between each picture


    Current timing between pictures maybe 3 seconds. Would 1 second or shorter

    I am using it in the LPR mode with motion detect.

    Not sure the proper use or setup for LPR but playing with it.

  9. Just setting up this Hikvision NVR 7616 with several cameras.

    One is a Dahua PTZ

    I can get the networking email test ok but not the motion detection

    I am pretty sure that I did set it up properly according to the manual

    Perhaps some other switch is missing or perhaps that I also have a Dahua NVR on the same network

    But Dahua NVR motion detection is working fine

  10. Hikvision camera uses 24 volts AC power supply at 24 watts max per manufacturer (not dc) or poe

    I have a 24 volts AC power supply with 60 watts (3 amps)


    Can I use the 60 watts power supply ?

    Hopefully the camera will draw only what it needs or will use the full 60 watts and burn up ?
