    Is it OK to update LTS CMIP8932-W (Hikvision Cube) with actual Hikvision firmware?

    I have a few LTS CMIP8932-W 3MP cube cameras that have firmware v5.3.0 build 151014 installed on them. I recently purchased a few of the Annke 2MP cube cameras that were on sale and followed a guide to update them using the official Hikvision firmware and it worked perfectly! :) I am wondering...

    NVMS7000 - Is there a way to set up a default camera, unmuted, max volume,fullscreen?

    In a previous thread I mentioned that I was using a cheap tablet as the monitor for a camera in the baby's room. However, this tablet often powers off on it's own (perhaps due to an overheat issue since it is quite cheap) and when I power it back on and start NVMS7000 again, I continually have...

    Thinking of buying a tablet for viewing Hikvision

    I am currently doing this exact thing using a Chinese made tablet (Chuwi HI8 Pro 32GB Intel Z8300 Quad Core 1.84GHz 8 Inch Dual OS Tablet). These can be found on slickdeals at times for about $90 shipped, so not too expensive to try out. In my case I am only monitoring a single Hikvision...

    Re: Recommendations for pulling CAT6e wires in an existing home.. DIY or hire someone UPDATE for those who care: I never ended up paying anyone to run the cables. I already purchased 2000+ feet of CAT6 cable and the parts needed to run the cables myself. I spent between 4-6 hours in the...

    I have two 1000' rolls of CAT6e cable that I purchased online and I am looking to get this CAT6e to all of my rooms and living areas in my home for both an IP camera (somewhere near the ceiling) as well as a box at normal floor level for other devices. So, this would be 2 cable runs leading to...

    LTCMIP8932-W (DS‑2CD2432F‑IW/2) motion detection screenshot to FTP not working

    Thanks for that suggestion @djangel but it appears the firmware this device came with has a bug in it. I updated to their latest firmware and it did fix the issue (now I can get screenshots to my FTP configured), but they are not full resolution. I might try updating to the Hikvision 5.3...

    Blue Iris Dedicate PC specs needed..8 Hik cams, 3MP & 4MP

    What is the best way to catch one of the Dell OptiPlex 7020/9020 i7-4790 machines when they go on a big sale? Do I just need to continually check the Dell Outlet site until I see the price really drop, or is there a better approach?
