  1. I have a Prama (Indian) 5 mp analog camera setup. Have been getting these horizontal lines in 3 of the camera display. These are exposed to rain. Although they are under a shade and not under open sky. Earlier the line was barely visible only at night. But since it really rains a lot in Goa, India. Now the lines are visible in the day as well. See image. I am hoping this will get resolved with coax video ground loop isolator balun so ordered then.

    Hello from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    Hello everyone, Hope you're all doing well. Just to introduce myself, I am new to the world of CCTV, though I consider myself somewhat tech savvy (I can put together a PC and do light troubleshooting). Mainly joined this forum to learn more about CCTV systems, how to set them up securely, troubleshoot connection issues, and just learn more about this new (to me) technology. I lack experience when it comes to VoIP and CCTV systems. Feel free to ask me any questions about life in Kuala Lumpur, I've just moved back here from living abroad for many years. Still find the country to be an exciting and lively place to live. Have started a family and moved here from Vietnam, previously teaching English in private and public sector. Ian Fun fact about me: I have slightly shorter than normal arms, like a trex, see attached pic for reference (credit to Hotpot.ai for the image)
  3. Hello everyone, good day. I have a problem with a 16CH HD SDI DVR from the Eyeview brand model HID1608HL, it turns out that I bought it on the street without abiding by the problem it brought, since for the configuration I clearly needed a password that I do not have and researching all over the internet I find that It is a Chinese brand that is not seen much and when reviewing the Eyeview page this model seems as if it were discontinued because it does not have any type of manual and I cannot find information anywhere to be able to delete the ADMIN password that it asks for. I have tried with all the possible keys, with DVR key generators with the date, I have removed the battery and changed it for a new one giving it a period of 2 hours without the battery, and it continues with the password and I don't longer know what more I can do please if someone can help me with this thank you very much.
  4. Hi all, We own and maintain a retail unit however the whole premises is leased out therefore we have no premises on site ourselves. We are looking to install a system that covers the whole premises however due to the above, one of the options we have come up with is to have an outside enclosure to house the NVR unit and have electricity fed by solar which should provide at least 100w which should be sufficient. Are there any enclosures that you would recommend or any other suitable solution? TIA!

  7. Hello everyone. Noob here?… and also new to the forum, so I Apologize if I created this topic in the wrong place. I need help figuring out a system that fits our needs. I’m helping/volunteering to install a cctv camera system in our church. The place has two assembly halls with an Audio/Video team in both sides. We want to install one security system for the entire building and have it controlled/viewed by both A\V teams separately. I know That there is the option to hook up two monitors but I’m assuming that it would just Mirror on both sides?So if one side zooms into a camera, the other side will see that too. We want each side to have their own separate control of the system. Is that even possible? Or can there only be one side controlling the cameras and the other side just have the mirrored display? if this is possible, is there specific systems we should be looking at? For example IP cameras? Thanks!
  8. Good day, I began installing CCTV cameras 3months ago and there is one thing I haven't noticed the function all this while which is a motion sensor around a green-like item around the IR LED. So I decided to test it out to see how accurate it is to help reduce storage consumption since it will only record whenever it detects motion but what I found out was not exactly my expectation. I set up my DVR with HDD and a Camera. Initially without recording the storage capacity is 111.8GB while the Rest capacity is 110.9GB so after setting up motion detection on my DVR I then connect a CCTV camera to face the wall where no motion is detected and I start the recording for 30mins. To my surprise, after recording without motion detection the Rest capacity has dropped to 110.5GB. To confirm what is going on I focused the camera on the motion area where movement is and start recording for 30mins I also noticed that the Rest capacity of the HDD has dropped from 110,5GB to 109.6GB. The way I understand how PIR or motion sensor works is that the system becomes active whenever there is movement and deactivate whenever there is no movement but the way this function it keeps recording whether there is movement or not an this will involve unnecessary footage recording and HDD space consumption. Please is there anyone who can explain to me how the motion sensor in the CCTV camera works? Thanks For CCTV forum.pdf

  11. Hi, has anyone used any Artificial Intelligence systems to ID risks? We have 4 business buildings and we simply don't have people to monitor cameras 24/7 . We want to get an alert when certain risks happen in our buildings and want these to be automatically detected examples are: - people entering wrong areas - vehicles entering wrong areas - people standing too close to certain machines - people not wearing the right safety gear ie hard hats etc. any help is much appreciated Toshiro
  12. I have a 4-channel Hikvision CCTV camera system. I want to use solar power to operate them. But I am not sure about which kind of batteries to use. It has been a few years since I installed these cameras for my warehouse; this was done with the help of CCTV installation services in Bangalore. But last year, I changed one of the cameras with the help of my friend's company; they are a few months old startups and have only minimal experience in this. However, it won't be good to go back and get help from the first agency as we drop them in between. Anyhow, we somewhat tried. I used a 100amp hour deep cycle battery, 140-watt solar panel, and 10 amp MPPT Solar controller. The cameras and DVR are all 12 volt DC so planning to connect them all to the controller directly, not sure about the output. How much distance should be between the camera and DVR to avoid voltage drop or, should I have to increase the thickness of the cable to correct this? Also, what kind of solar panel and inverter to use?
  13. Hi, I have the CCTV system placed in attic and is plugged into a TPlink wifi extender which supports only 2.4ghz and a maximum of 300mbps. At times, it loses connection and I am thinking if I should invest in a wifi extender which supports 5ghz as well for better speed and performance. The dvr system is a DVR-204U-K1 (Hilook) which supports Network Interface: 1; 10M / 100M self-adaptive Ethernet interface The question is , I am not sure if I should invest in better wifi extender. Only problem is I am not sure if the ethernet port of the wifi extender will run the wireless speeds or there is a set of protocol.
  14. i have an old 2015 model of sort DVR with system version DVR-G004L-EC 2.0.0000.6 release date 2015-05-06 it'll start recording automatically when you turn it on. and then every 59 seconds itll flash the date 2000-12-30 23:59:59 then it reverts into the system default of 2001-01-01 00:00:00 and then will record and set the recordings time on 2001till it all loops like that, if you even try to change the time and date to the current, itll only keep recording of current time then when the next 59 second hits the clock it still reverts to the 2001 date i've already did a format on the hardrive to clean the files, and did a hard reset on the device to load the default settings and all the box says the name "smart watch" H.264 DVR anybody knows how and where to find the latest software to flash it if possible. cant upload "large files" so i hope the link for some images works... box: version: back of the unit: front of the unit:

    Choice of Audio Cable

    I am about to install an Exvist 8.0Mp POE CCTV camera in our village hall to stream meeting to Youtube via RTMP protocol. I need to run a long audio cable from the microphone amplifier at the front of the hall to the camera at the other end as an audio feed and trying to decide on the best cable. I have looked at various cable types including pre-made with included 3.5mm jacks on each end to rolls of cable. The lead will run in some large timber boxing down the side of the room and will be adjacent data and mains cable so it really needs to be screened to reduce any pickup. I am looking on the well known auction site and equally well known large online retailer and there are various versions:- Cheaper single screen 2 core withf metalized pvc wrap, Single screened 2 core with copper woven braid Double screen 2 core flex with metalized foil and copper braid. Single screen Two core Balanced microphone with tinned copper braid In each case one end will be terminated in a 3.5mm stereo jack to go into the camera and a 6.3mm jack or XLR plug Trying to keep the price of install as low as possible but don't want problems with hum or pickup on audio so any advice would be appreciated.

  19. High definition video on IP cameras is usually mentioned as either 720p or 1080p. 1080p, or full HD resolution, records images that measure 1920 x 1080 pixels; 720p HD images measure 1280 x 720 pixels. The “p” in 720p and 1080p stands for “progressive scan,” which helps minimize blur caused by movement. Older-style analog CCTV cameras measure image resolution in horizontal lines, called TVL. the upper the amount of lines in a picture , the upper the resolution. New IP cameras use different technology, and measure resolution through pixels. IP cameras can fit more pixels into a picture than CCTV cameras can fit horizontal lines, supplying you with a better quality image. HD IP cameras use even more pixels than non-HD cameras, supplying you with the simplest image quality available. cctv camera price in bangladesh To use an HD camera for face recognition , the face often must measure a particular pixel size. you'll also got to consider the lighting and therefore the angle the person is at while facing the camera—bad lighting or too sharp of an angle can make it hard to spot people. For more information on pixel count and face recognition , speak with our surveillance experts for specific recommendations for your project. HD cameras record images during a widescreen ratio of 16:9, which suggests the image is larger and wider than a non-HD camera. This wider image is what allows you to potentially monitor an equivalent area with fewer HD cameras, also allowing you to save lots of money on and time on installation. Non-HD IP cameras often have a facet ratio of 4:3. By recording video with more pixels during a wider ratio , high definition cameras offer you detailed images not available with CCTV analog or non-HD IP cameras.

  21. 1. My company has many office premises. In some of them, UVSS (Under Vehicle Search Scanners) are installed at entry & exit gates. This system has multiple cameras, which help capture faces of the front seat passengers apart from under carriages and license plates of vehicles. 2. For other facilities where UVSS are not installed, we have a requirement to capture the faces of driver and other passengers of all vehicles entering and leaving the premises. 3. Please recommend outdoor CCTV camera specifications for a high-end day / night camera for an office facility entry / exit points to capture faces of driver and passengers during in / out vehicular movement.

    Qvis Password Reset

    First post here. I'm having a bit of bother with a Qvis system I have. Our installer has disappeared leaving me with the system he installed to manage myself. My most immediate issue is that I am locked out! I know there are ways to reset the password from the recovery option and I was wondering if anyone here had the facility to generate the required code? My system is a Qvis Viper and I can provide the date-time information if required.

    4G Solar Powered Camera?

    Hey all, I'm looking at purchasing a Reolink Go PT, I've watched this review and it looks pretty good: https://youtu.be/A7S1zihmF-I However I wanted to know if any of you have tried this camera? Or can recommend any other suitable cameras. I need it to be 4G and powered by solar really as it will be mounted in a remote location and when I'm not there I won't have the generator running. If you have any cheaper suggestions that would be good although I'm not too technical so would need it to be simple as possible! Asking a lot I know! Mainly, this is the first time I've heard of Reolink, Are they a good brand? I've had Swan and Sannice cameras in the past but they were cheaper NVR type systems. Cheers all, Leo
