    Axis Cameras on Dahua NVR

    Thanks for your response and insight Bickford. Makes sense and sounds like it is definitely not worth such a premium price to use on a Dahua system. My main reason for wanting Axis was purely for ascetics. I will reconsider the Dahua dome options.

    Axis Cameras on Dahua NVR

    Thanks Bigred, main reason I want to get the Axis cams is that I want to mount them inside and they don't need a junction box if you mount them on a concrete ceiling or brick wall. Network cable plugs in nicely into the camera inside at the back with Axis. The Dahua domes on the other hand will...

    Axis Cameras on Dahua NVR

    Hi, I have a Dahua XVR and Dahua cams both IP and HDCVI. I am looking at some Axis IP domes on the remaining slots I have available on the system. Does anyone know exactly how much functionality will be lost on the Axis cameras going through the Dahua XVR? Is it still worth it? Would I still...

    Don't see how pinging a reliable and trusted NTP server poses any risk to your network though.

    Best practise for time sync

    Thanks, yeah I noticed the 1 sec difference despite same NTP server! That does irritate me a bit, but good to know it's pretty normal.

    Best practise for time sync

    I am sure this topic has been discussed a few times here, but would like to know what most think the best practise is for syncing Dahua IP cameras' time with a Dahua NVR/XVR's time? Should the NVR/XVR be set to sync with an NTP and each IP camera also set to sync with an NTP in the camera's own...
