  1. If you are trying to add a EZVIZ camera you need to do it on a device that is 2.4GHZ on the same network you are.
  2. You can buy a EZVIZ DVR or NVR system that doesnt to audio For the rest of the house. Then buy a standalone EZVIZ mini 360+ wifi cam (has 2 way audio) If you can put it under a eave it is ok for outside use I have done this. Both integrate on 1 app. With EZVIZ you can mix and match their systems on 1 app. I have 2 of these mini 360's in addition to my night owl system. Though i have to use separate apps.
  3. Check all of your connections at the cameras first. Check cabling for breaks, signs of corrosion burn marks and the like. Are any outdoors and are the connections weather tight? Also check all connections at the power supply. A long shot if you have a volt meter check the voltage on the circuit the power supply is on at the outlet AND at the breaker in your electrical panel. While you are in the panel check that the breaker (hot) wire is tight you must turn the breaker off for safety to do this. Also check the Neutral wire as well. A loose neutral wire can cause weird things to happen.

    Night Owl remote app not working today

    My Night Owl HD app has had some issues on my i phone 6s. I couldn't connect at first had to go in settings then hit save. That would work until i open up again then had to do the same thing so my camera's would load. They have a post today 1/2/18 on their Facebook page. they are still working in it.
  6. Looking for some help here as Night Owl isn't much help. There was a update today on their app. All my devices 2 phones and my Tablet updated perfectly. The Chrome book i get "App encountered an exception please exit" I uninstalled the app and removed from the Library. Re downloaded it same issue. My chrome book/ google settings are correct as this app will no longer work. I'm using a new chromebook 3 and yes the OS is up to date. Thanks in advance.

    Routing cables from loft to study.

    A Few of ways to do this. #1 Use a stud finder and mark your studs, Then drop your wires in between the studs to a outlet box which you will need to buy plus cut your wall to fit, and get this box cover or similar: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-1-Gang-0-625-in-Hole-Device-Telephone-Cable-Wall-Plate-White-R52-88017-00W/100356878 I can snake 6 wires easily through this cover. Then a short run from the wall to the DVR #2 call up a electrician that has a infrared camera that can see through walls but this can be costly. #3 If you cant do those above there are cable management solutions (wire hiders you can buy at Walmart online or from other retailers.)

    Not the usual CCTV system needed

    Try the EZVIZ Husky Camera As for mounting you can use 2 small spring clamps, you can get those at Harbor Freight or Home depot. https://www.walmart.com/ip/EZVIZ-Husky-Outdoor-HD-1080p-PoE-Smart-Wi-Fi-Video-Security-Bullet-Camera-Works-Alexa-100-ft-Night-Vision-Weatherproof-16GB-Micro-SD-Included/55126318 Clamp type https://www.harborfreight.com/1-inch-capacity-steel-spring-clamp-39569.html
  9. A few things to try/ check: 1 Do you have 4G on your smart phone. 2 Are you at your mobile data cap? you could be throttled by your mobile provider. 3 What internet speed you have at home. When streaming its recommended at least 5G upload speed for best performance. 4 Age of router or Modem/ Router combo. May need replacement. 5 In your DVR make sure all your settings for streaming are correct (lower rate uses less bandwith)

    Ezviz MINI 360 Plus (Review)

    Ok i bought this camera 2 weeks ago and have been testing it out hard before i decided where i was going to mount it. I must say this is great INDOOR camera for the price i paid. This link. https://www.walmart.com/ip/EZVIZ-Mini-360-1080p-Pan-Tilt-WiFi-Indoor-Camera-Color/55615832?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=250&adid=22222222227075242363&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=188401585423&wl4=aud-310687322322:pla-294359697101&wl5=9002292&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=111838790&wl11=online&wl12=55615832&wl13=&veh=sem It did not come with a SD card from this retailer but other retailers sell them with a SD card (more $). I purchased a 32GB on my own. This has wifi and Hardwired ( Not POE) options for set up. Mine is Hardwired. Set up on 2 devices was easy. 1 on IOS (I phone 6s+) the other on Android. (Alcatel phone) Set up on a desk top was easy as well. As far as operation on IOS it works flawlessly On a Android phone that works well but the response time on the pan and tilt is a bit slower than IOS. Note with Android. This will not work on a RCA voyager tablet (first version) Not a big deal for me though. The Ezviz mobile app has more features than the desktop app. The Desktop is OK but 1 feature is missing that if the camera is in sleep mode you have to wake it first from one of your mobile devices first. You can put to sleep and take it out of sleep from there when program is open. Again not a big deal for me. All in all i really like this Camera. Picture quality is better than what i was expecting. Auto tracking works decent. I would recommend.

    What HDD should I use?

    WD purple series is great for CCTV. I just upgraded my system to a 4TB drive a few days ago. So far so good. It replaced a 1TB that was pre installed on my system. I out grew it that quick.
  13. If this product was bought used you need to register your product with Night OWL then call customer care. If this product is new you have to set up your admin password the first time you boot up your system The pass word has to be 8 characters. Now, when your system is unlocked create another user name with a different password and grant it full accsess . So this problem doesn't happen again.

    Mounting a bullet style camera to soffit

    It will hold. You may have to buy different screws, Sometimes the ones that come with the cameras are cheap quality. If you have small holes in your soffits look into quality self tapping screws.
  15. I run mine 24/7. If there is a power failure i have a commercial grade battery back up that will keep my dvr and power to all 8 cameras running for 6-8 hours.
