    Andy’s fancy cameras install

    Great install. Thanks for sharing. How are these 2231 cams from Andy holding up outside without any cover? Also, what is the code from the junction boxes you have used for the cams? Are they from Andy? Thanks in advance

    Hikvision nvr and ptz schedual question possibly moving from blue iris

    Is there a big difference in the power usage of BI v a NVR? I've read that there isn't much of a difference. Also the functionality of BI is supposed to be far superior to any NVR. Just curious about why you're changing before I go ahead with picking one of the options.

    Help finding a new security camera

    Help finding a new security camera

    I’m sold that the 5231 starlight turret is the top of the chain. If I wanted to run 5 Dahua turrets outside which NVR from Andy would work with them to full potential? I’m keen on an NVR and not bi.

    Recommendations for home video security system

    I'm not being "lazy" and I'm not "blaming the chair or the wiring". I'm constrained in what I can do so I'm looking for the best solution. I understand you like bi and I'm not discounting bi at all. I'm looking for a solution given the installers won't touch the pc even if it's one wire to connect.

    Recommendations for home video security system

    T Thank you really appreciate it. Looking at the BI setup it’s impossible for me physically to even move or hook up my pc let alone do all the wiring. I know installers will wire my cameras but they won’t touch bi or any component to do with bi. Unfortunately this leaves me having to buy an...

    Recommendations for home video security system

    The point is not that my wheelchsir has a bearing on wiring in relation to BI V NVR. its that if I buy a nvr and cameras from an installer at least they will do the installation. That said coukd you recommend a Hikvision nvr and cameras was my request?

    Hi Matt, Thank you for putting in all this time to help new members. I have been reading for months and went ahead and bought a few things but it all ended up not working out because after reading for months I thought I understood what I needed.
