    IPC-HDW5231R-Z not accessible

    @mikenepa Try this. The address you'll type into the browser is listed above... 192.168.1.08 You'll sign in, make it static and then add it to BI. You'll also have to disconnect all of them except for one and then do them one at a time

    Upgrading to PoE Injector with a separate Switch. Advice appreciated

    Daytime I’m around 46.9 watt Nighttime with IR I’m around 63.2. Night will obviously draw more for longer this time of year given the seasons. This is to power the Switch which powers 7 Hikvision cams as well as one PoE powered Raspberry Pi. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Also, why would a 10/100 switch not be compatible with a gigabit switch? The data coming FROM the cameras is a slower speed going to a faster switch.

    Cat5e Wiring Diagram?

    Grab a tester. Less then 10 bucks and worth their weight in gold. Easiest way to tell if it's the camera or wiring but given you've terminated three times, it may be a camera issue. Or the port in your switch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Small vs Large LED in IR Illuminators

    Will depend on the brand as well as output and the diffuser. Don't assume one cheap illuminator with say 6 larger lights will be better then a more expensive one with say a grid of 30 small lights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hikvisions in new construction

    I've read a lot of people here who have said run one wire, then as you're running it tape a string to that so when it's completely fished, you just need attach the next wire to the bottom of that string, and then repeat with another string and the next wire and so on. Most here recommend a...

    2 IR illuminators and their differences

    Cat 6 cable is laid now I need to crimp it and test it...tool advice requested

    Also, I bought one of these when I was halfway thru and wish I had it from the getgo. It makes sure you don't cut into the wires when you're stripping the thread and provides clean and clear cuts. Def worth the investment. Universal Cable Stripper Cutter for Flat or Round UTP Cat5 Cat6 Wire...

    Cat 6 cable is laid now I need to crimp it and test it...tool advice requested

    Plantium EZ are overpriced for what they provide. Get a regular crimper and RJ45's, take a foot or two of cable and practice. Terminate and then cut off about two inches and do it again. By the fourth or fifth time you'll be fine. It's much simpler once you do it a few times, don't get...

    Video Storage Options

    What will you be using it for? Redundant recording? Transferring everything daily as a secondary backup? Knowing this will determine the type of drive, whether a 24/7 write like a WD Purple or just A regular drive HDD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Long CAT 6 wire runs - repeater or router needed?

    You can't have any one Ethernet cable over 300' (328' as posted earlier in this thread) unless it's fiber optic. It's that simple. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
