    Dahua DMSS App.

    Strangely the Lorex home app is the only app out of gDMSS and DMSS I have found that I can actually control my Dahua Motorised Zoom cameras with, on gDMSS and DMSS it zoomed in but never back out again, but with the Lorex Home app, I can zoom in and out with no issues.

    NVR5216-16P-4KS2E

    Hello, am I reading this correct in that it can only run 4 channels at 4k ?. My Lorex can show all 8 channels in 4k at 15FPS. Not that I plan on running 16 all in 4K but I would expect a decent NVR to be able to do such or am I dreaming ? :)

    The Lorex is under 1 year old, once I have swapped out all cameras I will take back to Costco I expect :)

    NVR5216-16P-4KS2E

    I have all my cameras going into Poe switches already with only one internet ethernet going into the NVR but from what I see, if I want my internet on the 192.168.0.x subnet and the Cameras on the 192.168.1.x subnet, I need to buy a NVR with a switch as the NVR switch can be set to 192.168.1.x...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Contact Andy via PM etc, his response times are normally good. I have never ordered via the website, always directly, he sends a PayPal Invoice and the goods are send via FedEx as soon as payment is received. Not sure if theirs any differences in pricing or something via ordering via the...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    I have bought a few of the more expensive Dahua cameras from Andy now. Firmware has never been an issue. All cameras always take whatever firmware is on the manufacturers websites and later firmware that Andy frequently provides. In total honesty the only issue I forsee and have had is if the...

    Hi, I personally like bullets, I think it's more a personal choice. I doubt NVR has as much customiszation as BI but I don't want to run a computer 24/7 and I have NVR at moment but with only 8 channels and since getting the addiction for more cameras I now need to step up as have 9 cameras...
