    Hikvision NVR password reset

    Hey all, I got an NVR from a friend of mine, and they don't remember the password, and the NVR is not one that was sold thru Hikvision here in north america, so the password reset page from Hikvision is of no help to me. I'm wondering if anyone on here can help me out with it. Thanks, Kevin

    Camera installs and builds.

    Here are some photos of those Non-penetrating roof mounts that I could have used the parapet mount for. I told the PM that the camera's wouldn't see over the edge like he wanted, I told him how to build a wood one that would work, and this is what I got... LOL I didn't care so I installed the...

    Camera installs and builds.

    Not exactly an install but definitely fun to share. Rented a greenlee 555 bender to bend 1 length of 2" EMT for a custom camera pole... so we bent 5 of them. 3 identical ones, one small parapet style mount, and one large one. I would have had 2 large ones if I didn't kink the first bend I...

    Camera installs and builds.

    Here's the last thing I did today before going home. I put together these power boxes for an install I'm doing next week. All they are is a 60 watt 12v DC power supply inside an enclosure to power a Ubiquiti radio and a PTZ camera. I had the option of using PoE injectors to do this, but I'd have...

    Camera installs and builds.

    This was my morning job, relocate this camera I installed back in August or July or something. These cameras were pretty much already built but they got some extra goodies and reworked and tested before being installed again. Basically the same as the canal cameras, except we were planning on...

    Camera installs and builds.

    Here's some more photos of the Canal Cameras. I have the enclosures with the camera mounted to 2" EMT using our time lapse camera Pole mount bracket and I fastened it to the pole with my stainless steel banding tool.

    Correct they do not include the box. You want more info on the fiberglass enclosure the camera is installed on? Sure. They're made by Allied Molded. I don't think they're called fiberglass on their site. I think they're resold by Hammond manufacturing too. They're not cheap tho. The box this...

    Camera installs and builds.

    Nope. The camera goes directly into the cellular router/modem. There's a VPN tunnel or something on the cell modem. That stuff is above my pay grade tho. No, it's a DS-2DE3A400BW-DE. It comes with the wall mount. It's a little crappy tho as the wiring is only just long enough to get to the box...

    Howdy everyone. I work for a company that does lots of construction site CCTV and commercial grow op facilities. In this thread I will be posting photos that I am permitted to that will not break the terms and conditions of my non-disclosure agreement. Attached is an image of 1 of the 3...

    New installation

    I'd say thru the concrete is the best way right now. After the pour is done I'd vacuum a string in to ensure the conduit is still usable (sometimes Conduit gets crushed or pulled apart during pours). Option 2 and 3 are good for things that got forgotten or damaged and needs another or new lines run.

    Best way to join 2 Cat6 cables

    Those big black things you see are poly pipe (AKA water pipe) that the former IT guy used for running all the network cables... Suprise Suprise some of the runs don't work and had to have radios installed to make the connection work... I told them next time something fails, dig a trench around...

    Best way to join 2 Cat6 cables

    Man, it sounds like the guy that did that started at your facility, learned from his mistakes with the grease, and moved to this one! The former IT guy had to have all top of the line stuff (Axis cameras, fluke equipment, etc) but cheaped out on the actual install and didn't even know how to...

    Best way to join 2 Cat6 cables

    Mine won't. Although if they're inside a junction box you can get away without using anything but the coupler portion. Don't use an indoor coupler outdoors, they corrode and break down. I had to replace an indoor one in a junction box with an outdoor one (I just removed the junction box)... not...

    Best way to join 2 Cat6 cables

    I use these... I flood them with dielectric grease. They also use split glands so they can be used on cables that are pre- terminated. I buy them wholesale but here's a link for the retail site...
