Dahua NVR with Hikvision Cameras - Big issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So I've had an existing set-up running for a while now with mostly Hikvision dome cameras into a Dahua NVR. At the time of install the Dahua cameras were quite difficult to get, only available from US and on ebay (not the best if they break). So decided to install Hikvision using ONVIF. Great!

I've started to notice, and have reports of the footage having pauses every so often. I could probably live with this but this is for a busy bar and we have about 25 or so Hikvision cameras running over 2 Dahua NVRs. Of course fast forward today, there's lots of Dahua cameras available to buy.

Anyway, has anybody had this issue (screenshot below) and any pointers in fixing it? Other than buying all new cameras or a Hikvision NVR, which I don't want to do.

Thanks in advance.

1. i never recommend you push 2 major competitors system to work together. over these years, i have been so many conflict when dahua work with hikvision.

2. the green bar is for 24/7 recording, it shouldn't have black out, so my question is this is for just 1 camera, right? if so, please check if this camera is on and off frequently.

Yep. I agree but a few years ago, there wasn't many Dahua cameras available in the UK at a decent price to buy in bulk. I picked the job off an electrician who had already bought the NVR.

The green bar you can see if 40 mins actually. This is happening on all Hikvision cameras...
