  1. you can get a manual online. Usually you would just set up two user accounts with different access to the cameras. For example user1 could see cams 1-8 and user2 could only see cameras 9-16. Login to the system as one or the other and you will have the split as needed.
  2. I just looked at the manual and it appears you have to access the unit with a PCor phone. The unit is no longer made. It looks like you would have to output the pc to your big TV kind of a lot of hardware for what you need to do

    Memory card in CCTV

    AWS lets you rent storage on Amazon's systems for as much data as you want for as long as you want. Aside from the cloud issue and costs it is an option if you really need that kind of storage.
  4. Does this system have a spot monitor option?
  5. look at the mfgs websites and get a drive designed specifically for video. Really anything will sork but you want something that is designed for your specific needs.

    log directly into camera 2 and rename it. cameras usually come with a default camera 1 name or similiar

    Design for New Construction

    Cable is cheap enough. run to every location you think you may use. If the cable does not get used it is still better than trying to install after the building is finished.

    Design for New Construction

    not knowing exactly what you are needing I would reccommend running cat 6 with spares to every location you think you may need a camera,sensor or other ethernet device. most modern systems will run on this cable and it can be adapted as needed for voice video or access control.
  9. sometimes you can use an existing cable as a pull string to install new cables.
  10. If you can run a cable for each camera it would be best. If you run cat 5E or six you would be able to support devices that use the 1000 mps. Cable is pretty cheap and if you can stay within the 100 m length POE should be no problem. A swithch works as well but I come from a cabling background and always try to eliminate as many electronics as possible.

    pac2 network help

    do you know the od IP addre on the computer that quit?
  12. same way with a UPS price will vary depending on how much load on the system and how much time you want the system to run before the batteries go out. Depending on the ups it also protects against power surges, brownouts and flickering. More money=more time.
  13. Cat 6 of 5e will not make any difference with present day cameras but the larger conductors may be of help with the next generation of cameras.

    Cctv tester for Lorex Cameras

    I have had various testers but usually you can just use your smartphone,pc or laptop
  15. If you go to IP you can run POE and probably get withing the 100 meter limit fro what you have expalained. Termination of cat5/6 is not hard and you can buy preterminated patchcords in lengths of at least 100 ft
  16. before i spent the money i would try to deal with the problem on a personal basis.

    Wireless CCTV with Built-in Repeaters?

    Ubiquity has a line of several different networking products at reasonable prices. I would stay away from their line of cctv equipment as it lacks some features.

    camera to read number plates at night.

    look at your local convience store or bank that strip that shows the height of someone entering or leaving the building may well have a camera hidden in it. LPC work best when you can get a straight shot at the plate like at a parking lot entrance or toll booth.

    CCTV Classroom Suggesions

    I would consider a 360 degree camera for the classroom. Not cheap for the high megapixel ones but you would get a lot of coverage

    ieGeek Security Outdoor Camera 1080P

    did you port forward the cameras IP address? and are the correct ports open in your router?

    camera to read number plates at night.

    You will need a LPR camera with the software to read the plates. I know Geovsion has one but have notused it so I do not know how well they work. Check other camera mfgs to see what they have to offer.
  23. we did a small city camera system a few years ago 5 cameras. It was expensive. If you have a budget double it. Also plan on a large maint budget. Once you start working with units of government, power companies, local and state laws things get complicated. You might be better off hiring some more policeman that spending money on a complicated camera system.

    Storage Unit build

    shoul work fine if distances are within POE limits approx 300 ft.
  25. Somebody has something to sell the community. Problems as 51cent has described. solar powered and batteries who maintains that? If you can get a wire to a camera you are probably better off. Are you planning to cover your home or the street?
