  1. Thanks boogie, The camera is in a cafe with a lot of Windows. Never thought thought of turning that down because of the brightness outside. I'll play with those settings today and try and get screen shots. Any other settings I should play with? Esp since it's looking at a window? saturation is one that I had to turn down.
  2. Phew just checking lol The hikvision ip cameras just have way more noise then their hdtvi counterparts, they are just smoother and cleaner video in my eyes.
  3. I have LTS(rebranded hikvision) hd-tvi 1080p 30fps cameras and 2.1 mp 1080p IP cameras also hikvision and I can honestly say the hdtvi has a better quality pic then the IP camera... Does anyone else see this or am I crazy?

    Help buying an old system

    Don't do it. Between LTS's new HD-TVI units and IP stuff... you can get it new and pure HD for that price and you'll 2 generations behind on HD security stuff. My business advise to is to NOT BUY IT!!! tell him you don't want it. he's just trying to juice you for a few extra dollars... for $1250 you can put in a great 1080p HD system. 1 HD camera can cover 2 of the old cameras.

    Problems screwing dome cameras to there wall brackets

    haha i know exactly what your talking about... i had an Acti dome mount screwed into sheetrock ceiling (not to tight) and took forever to get that dome onto the mount.. along with the ethernet cable in the hole it's really really a pain!!! Next time i do one... i think i'm going to put some sort of "spacer" gasket on the wall mount. This way when i go to screw the dome on i don't have to push hard and slightly grind into the sheetrock lol I think my "gasket" idea would work perfectly... it'll slightly raise the mount, will be solidly installed, and then much easier to get the dome mounted. But not to big of a gasket can't have the dome floating lol and the how to screw holes thread was juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust a little off, not sure he understood what you were you were having problems with. those mounts leave almost ZERO room for error... and what if the sheetrock is not prefect.
  7. Not funny ssmith10pn........ ok maybe it is a little bit lol but seriously... this sucks... any other IP solutions that can possibly integrate with POS overlay?
  8.

  9. Still no response from ACti... and their support page has been down for over a month. And i had a regional sales person contact me 2 weeks ago... again with no response from her on POS overlay. This isn't looking good... for support to be down for well over a month
  10. Thanks Buellwinkle their support page is currently down so i'll send email to them asking about it and how it's done.
  11. Can Acti camera/softweare overlay Ethernet POS printer info? Just like the subject says a lot of newer Point of Sale Printers are Ethernet/network based thermal printers. Is there any way to overlay this info onto a camera? i know there were some serial based solutions for the BNC type cameras. But what about for IP Cameras? thanks

    ACti NAS setup/howto?

    ACti NAS setup/howto?

    i guess no way to do it i'll keep the main server and have all storage to to NAS or just buy an acti DVR and get it over it. Just looking to have the smallest/simplest setup for a dvr
  14. Just wondering how you would set up a NAS / acti cameras / then the main software. Would the cameras still record to the NAS if the server software was off? or do i still need a PC running no matter what? just trying to cut out the PC if possible
