    Remote Access to NVR

    Thanks Looney2ns. Decided to go the same route Friday so ordered an Asus router based on earlier post by @fenderman.

    Remote Access to NVR

    Appreciate the replies. Have been out of town. We have Centurylink as ISP using a Zyxel C1100z modem/router. Only two PCs on the LAN plus a music streaming box. We can buy a new router and set gateway to bridge mode; I was just hoping to avoid the additional expenditure. Most of the routers I...

    Remote Access to NVR

    We have vendor-provided Hikvision NVR-camera systems at our non-profit. When the vendor installed the systems they port forwarded to the NVR so the manager could remotely view the camera feeds. We did that until I found this site. (I'm volunteer IT support.) Port forwarding is now disabled...

    Thanks.

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    I'm getting a sense that the Lenovo's are seen as second fiddle to the EliteDesks even though the latter's dual drive capacity is not a certainty. Is that correct?

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    I see this EliteDesk 800 G2 for ~$425 but how can I tell if it will securely hold two 3.5 drives? So I still lean toward the $450 Lenovos listed earlier if someone can feedback if they're decent machines at a decent price.

    Are these closer: ThinkCentreM900 & ThinkStationP310? About the only business class i7-6700 towers I've found in the Wiki's $400-500.

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    Thanks for clarifying on the later generation SFF lack of dual 3.5" HDD capacity. I recall your posts that the extra bay in the earlier generation Elitedesks was for a card reader not HDD; was hoping the other posts about later gen HP SFFs having added HDD capability were correct. Shipping on...

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    Still looking for a computer. Would like two 3.5 drives. Haven't seen towers on ebay particularly with sixth gen i7s or better. So focusing on HP G3 & G4 SFF models presuming they can hold two 3.5s: EliteDesk 800 G3 i7-7700 or EliteDesk 800 G4 i5-8500. Will confirm with HP before buying...

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    Looking at this HP ProDesk 600 G2. An ok machine for the price? Can get Win10 Pro very affordably as a nonprofit. Would then add WD Purple drive for storage.

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    BI on the upgraded food bank system will be running the current 10 rebranded Hikvision domes and bullets plus another 5-10 Dahua cameras (mostly IPC-HDW5231R-ZE's). Up to four staff may have camera streaming running on their desktops at any given time. This site convinced me to try BI and I'd...

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    I agree, but unfortunately it wasn't my call as I'm volunteer support. I've got a second PC to put in there once I can get them to free up some space. That will be solved shortly. My main concern for this thread is a PC for the food bank upgrade.

    Ok PC for 20 camera setup?

    Appreciate the offer, but the CPU utilization is not my (immediate) concern. The 40-70% is for full CPU utilization for our thrift shop PC. BI optimization is secondary right now as it's on a multi-use PC: user account #1) BI & teamviewer, and user account #2) volunteers doing ebay, music...
