  1. Thank you for your response I have submitted hereunder the display that I am seeing on the screen: (Thanks for the clarification also, I had erroneously stated facial recognition what I actually meant was facial detection. ) Camera Resolution 5mp Resolution 5MP Frame rate 12fps Maximum bit rate kbps 2048 Maximum bit rate recommended 1852-3087 kbps Maximum average bit rate 1440 Encoding H.265 The DVR atomically sets the frame rates to 12 fps at 5 MP, 15ffs at 4MP and 18fps at 3MP NOTE The frame rate cannot be adjusted upwards.
  2. Thank you both for your responses Listed hereunder are the specifications of the equipment used (to the best of my knowledge): DVR: DS-7208HUHI-K1 TURBO HD DVR 4 CAMERAS: DS-2CE16HIT-IT3Z 5MP 2.8MM TO 12.MM (MOTORISED LENS) TURBO HD 1 CAMERA: DS-2CE56HOT-ITMF 5MP 2.8MM TURBO HD. According to the PTZ settings and the DVR settings the cameras are set to 5MP (I don’t know if I was expecting too much from the system. The coverage is fairly okay, but facial recognition is not that clear.)
  3. I had a CCTV system (analog) installed at my home a few months ago with 5 5 MP analog cameras. However, I am not quite satisfied with the performance. The Hikvision Technician who installed it told me that IP Systems show up to 4 times clearer than the CCTV. Is the quality of the IP system so much better that it’s worth upgrading from analog?
  4. Thank you for your advice.
  5. I am thinking of adding a camera to my CCTV system. (I know that there are standards or codes in electrical wiring) Are there any colour codes for Video Balun Transceiver and Power Supply wires when using CAT5 OR CAT6 cable to install CCTV HD Analog Cameras?
  6. A DS-2CD2055FWD 2.9MM 5mp Hikvision IP camera to the network but the NVR receiving a VGA signal from it. I tried another 5MP cameras on the same connection and the NVR is receiving the correct 5mp signal. The option with camera to change the signal on settings with the DS-2CD2055FWD on the NVR are 640X480 VGA and lower. The options with the other camera are from 8MP and lower. Does anyone have and ideas how to resolve this issue?
  7. Since normal HD monitor only has a resolution of up to 1080P. (1920 X 1080) Does it make sense installing a 5 MP HD Analog surveillance system if you’re not using a 4K monitor with it? As I understand it the 5MP has a resolution of 5MP 2560x1920.
  8. Thank you for your responses. The manual said the at 5MP the camera could be set at 12.5 or 20 frames per second. The cameras are currently set at 12.5 frames per second, motion detection is turned off and also, it is also set at h265. I neglected to mention I formatted the hard drive also to no avail. I am wondering if changing the frame rate to 20 frames per second would make any difference.
  9. I recently installed a Hikvision CCTV system with 5 5MP Turbo Varifocal Motorised Cameras, and a DS-7208HUHI-K1 DVR with a Western Digital Purple 2TB Hard Drive Although the estimated recording time in days says 16 days, I noticed that It has actually recorded 46 days so far and used only about 5GBG of the 2T Hard Drive. What could be causing this discrepancy?
