    HiWatch

    Well, I had to contact the place where I bought a camera from in order to get new firmware. :confused: Otherwise the camera has been working ok. I think the web control is missing some features that are included with Hikvision branded cameras but I'm not sure.

    Same hardware, different brand

    But the store seems to be very professional and authorized reseller (if that is a thing). I don't think they are Chinese and the shop is based in EU. It looks ok for me but I just want to make sure that they are upgradable. Isn't it usually possible to use original Dahua firmware on rebranded...

    Same hardware, different brand

    The models numbers with those numbers don't exists and seem to be only for the distributor. Those seem not to be chinese models because of information found on dahua website. Both have "S3" suffix. However it too seems to be distributor spesific and no mention on naming table.

    Same hardware, different brand

    Hi. I found a shop selling rebranded Dahua cameras and the original ones. The rebranded are 4€ cheaper. I'm guessing the firmware will be a problem so are the original ones better. I'm not 100% it is same camera but they seem to have identical specs. Which one is better? Are these cameras...

    How many port (forwarding) do I need on DS-2CD4126FWD-IZHZ

    Hei I'm not 100% sure if the router supports it but if there is an option to use Ipsec or OpenVPN tunnel (Not passthrough) it will work. You have to use direct ip if the router does not support No-ip (or another external device like raspberry pi) The tunnel just basically lets you use all...

    Getting Axis M3045-V IP camera to work with Hikvision nvr-208m-a/8p NVR

    Hi. If the NVR tells that the network is unreachable check it's connection to local network and that the camera is accessible from the network the NVR is connected.

    Linux script for motion detect and snapshot?

    Python & OpenCV (I have used SimpleCV because it is easier to use) sightmachine/simplecv-examples Supports MJPEG streams. SimpleCV Cookbook — SimpleCV v1.2 documentation Recording SimpleCV Cookbook — SimpleCV v1.2 documentation I'm sure there are better solutions than this : p

    Securing Hikvision system for May 2018

    It would work against bruteforce attacks. EDIT: actually it's as useful as better password but it's still more difficult to crack because nobody expects the username would have been changed.

    Hikvision or Axis?

    Axis. More reliable and better support in my opinnion.

    IP Cameras with clean HTML5 interface (no plugins!)

    It's weird that Axis still requires Internet Explorer to configure motion detection even though it could be easily done with javascript. Same for Hikvision (at least on newer models). Axis has the best web controls in my opinnion. :D
