  1. Extract from " Forum Posting Guidelines" Have fun. Be Polite. Be Respectful. Be Professional. Use Common Sense. Don't Break the Law. You guys behavior is disgraceful , if you have personal grievances please arrange to meet at a car park and sort it out , I find that both of you are abusing this forum, I'm disgusted , I have to say I have never seen behavior like this since I joined in 2009. I'm sure most people are not interested in your squabble , at best its amusing , sad but amusing.

  3. Looks like you are recording in "motion detection" the breaks in the recording is when there is no motion detected. The status changing from green to red indicates the change from motion to no motion detected.
  4. I have been looking into the same thing recently , Your best bet is to approach the POS vendor who has installed the POS system , they like to control their system and not let anyone make changes that might affect the reliability of their set up which I can understand. Some but not all of them have a way of accommodating text overlay on an ip camera. Some POS units require a separate box to do this and the more modern ones have this already built in. The problem is that there are so many different POS Vendors and their software/hardware are all different. I was hooping to intercept the "text" at the printer as I assume all printers receive pretty much the same data to print , but it seams it is not so simple as I thought. I will be talking to some vendors next week , I will keep you posted.
  5. Also the IR light is more spread out and less concentrated than the conventional ones and they will illuminate up 25/30 M . I like them , they are tough and solid !
  6. I have installed about 15 turrets recently and I have found them the easiest and fastest to install and adjust , that really saves time if you have a lot to install , also you can put them on the ceiling or on the wall which you can not do with a dome without a special bracket . The down side is the reset button is inside the ball , but if you do your job right you wont need it
  7. If you can return it do it as quickly as possible, I have bought cameras from Zmodo and I cannot begin to tell you how bad they were + they would not give me a RMA number to return them they are still sitting on a shelf , there is a reason why they are reduced in price from 200 to 49 . spend 100 on something half decent . To get a camera that has the specs. of that Zmodo you would have to pay close to 200$, Hikvision have cameras like that and they DO everything that they say on the box, if you can afford it you wont regret it.
  8. Thanks MaxIcon, I will contact the different VMS vendors tomorrow to see if their software is compatible with Hikvision , not sure how it all fits together (hardware and software ) I briefly looked into it a couple of years ago with Geovision analog cameras but I was hoping that it would have become easier / simpler to put together with IP cameras. Thanks again.
  9. Just wondering if anyone has experience with integrating pos transactions with Hikvision ip cameras, I have a few clients who would be interested.
  10. If you have 4x hikvision cameras then its always better to use a Hik. NVR , less potential problems and remember ONIF cameras are not always as compatible as they are made out to be. Motion detection very often does not work with a different brand NVR to the camera
  11. Don't forget that the advantage of a separate switch instead of a poe nvr is that you can access each camera individually without going through the nvr. You really dont need a gigabite switch for up to 15 or 20 cameras, a 10/100 is more than enough. D-link have a 8 port Gigabit poe switch for about 100 euro and Netgear have a 10/100 24 port for about 250 euro . Remember you can only put 7 cameras on a 8 port switch , the other port connects to your router, 7 in 1 out
  12. Ok Thanks, it seems such a waste , only a few years ago you wouldn't dream of putting a hd camera in a tiny little store room, mostly because of the price.
  13. Does anyone know if Hikvision still makes VGA ip cameras, I have a few small storage areas ( 2Mx3M) that really don't need HD cameras , they should be about half the price of a HD camera, or even another manufacturer that will record with motion detection on a hikvision NVR
