FarmerCharlie posted a topic in IP/Megapixel Cameras and Software SolutionsSome years ago I used two different AverMedia cards to record wildlife-related videos. I've been thinking recently about getting some sort of IP-based system, but I have never been motivated to go ahead. At least not until yesterday, when my wife asked me. "Whose truck is that leaving our pasture and going out the driveway?" That motivated me to get serious. Until that incident I had assumed that I would use some sort of stand-alone wired system independent of my computer, but now I think I may need something that could handle some wireless I.P. cameras in addition to wired ones. In the past I have seen some stand-alone systems at pretty low cost at places like COSTCO and BestBuy, but I have no feel for how well they would meet my needs. I think I would prefer something that could handle at least 8 cameras, record if a motion event is detected and would not require a long-term subscription. I'm an old retired I.T. director, so I can handle basic network issues. I do not currently have a static IP address, but I think I could get one if necessary. I know that it would be unreasonable to ask the forum to design a system for me, but I thought maybe someone could point me in the right direction to help me get up to speed. I have looked over the Ultimate IP Camera guide and have started watching the IPVM 101 Training Videos. They have lots of information that I will be studying them in more detail. Thanks for any suggestions. Charlie
Hello All, I could use some advice before I take this project on if it’s even possible. My client has a HikVision (model ds-7216HGHI-SH) DVR. They need two coax cameras fixed that are about 4000+ feet from the country club house for a golf course. They initially had a direct fiber run from the club house but the fiber broke somewhere underground. I wouldn't be able to fix that because it was a direct bury and the layout of the course now. They have a little tennis house around 2000 feet away from where the cameras are located. In that tennis house is a switch and fiber optic cable (see pic) that was trenched from the country club network to tennis house. What I wanted to know is this even possible? My installment thought processes is: 1. Convert the two coax cameras to fiber optic cable OR 1a. Convert the two coax to IP then to fiber. Not sure if you could even convert coax to fiber. Category to fiber yes. 2. Run fiber to the tennis building 3. Convert fiber to Ethernet Cat 6 4. Install Cat 6 into an open port on the switch that runs back to the country club network. 5. Come out of switch in country club network and convert it to coax and into the HikVision DVR The known… Might need to put power on the pool where the cameras are and a waterproof box to store the conversion stuff. I can’t fix the old fiber because they don’t want to. I can’t use repeater to boost signal as wire will be buried Concerns I have… It sounds like it could work but have doubts. Can I take Analog to digital and back and have it work. Can anyone with experience with something like this provide advice. Do you think this would work? Thanks for your suggestions and help, Frank G.
