    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 ? :)

    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...

    NVR5216-16P-4KS2E

    Thanks wittaj nothing wrong with blue iris and I would aim one day to get a standalone machine and run BI, But at this time I am just interested in a good NVR. My Lorex can run all 8 channels in 4K but at only 15FPS and low bitrates. It only allows 80Mbps as you say. Strangely as I have...

    Hello All, I am planning on buying the above to replace my 8 channel Lorex box as I need more channels. Can anyone advise if this will stop anything working on the Lorex cam's i.e 2 way talk etc or any other reason I should not buy this NVR. Apart from buy BI instead please :). I believe...

    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...

    Bulk discount From EmpireTech-Andy on Amazon shop

    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...

    nvr5216-16p-4ks2e Vs NVR5216-4KS2

    Hi, Sorry I should have made clear I do not have a router which allows subnet separation & routing, I have recently bought 1 Manageable Poe switch that does allow vlans and that works fine but I have a cable going down to my man cave and that has on it cameras and internet, so I can not add...

    nvr5216-16p-4ks2e Vs NVR5216-4KS2

    Hello, I am planning on buying either nvr5216-16p-4ks2e or NVR5216-4KS2 with only difference being Poe ports that I don't use. However I do subnet by putting cameras on 192.168.1.x and the NVR on 192.168.0.x being that 192.168.0.x has access to the internet. As I set the NVR switch to...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    I have asked for qoutes on fixed 6mm and 4mm Vs IPC-B5442E- ZE, Also a NVR5216-16P-4KS2E or NVR5216-4KS2 as I don't actually use any POE ports on the NVR but I do use the inbuilt switch to subnet my cameras, basically I set the camera's to 192.168.1.x rather than my normal networks 192.168.0.x...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Yes, Could be, need to check out how much fixed 5442's in 6mm format are first and perhaps I should be getting 2 in 4mm and 2 in 6mm just so I have scope of 6mm gives me not anough view sideways. Also it would be interesting to put the Lorex next to a fixed 5442 to see if I can tell any...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    I will do some adjustments tomorrow, rising the angle of the cameras so they are above the fence, I don't need them below as the ring doorbell has s good picture of within the boundary. Then I will either convince myself I am capable of replacing the lense on the Lorex without scratching it or...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Yes ajwitt, need to slant the camera up a bit to stop iIR hitting fence, it was 2 dark to see even the Alan key hole when I finished the setup, so a job for tomorrow. Then for the first time I am not going to seal up the 20mm holes coming through the house as I have broken 2 cameras trying to...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Thank you ajwitt, unfortunately the fence is only 4ft, so not viable for a camera going on it. Perhaps I should have mounted the cameras higher, they are all mounted at around 4 metres of the ground. I will try and angle them higher though. below is photo from the IPC-B5442E-Z4E now.

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Thanks Branegge, In desperation to try and capture the criminals who have started blighting my street and knowing the IPC-B5442E-Z4E will arrive soon, I started insulation today and mounted a retired IPC-HFW5231E-Z5 in the place the IPC-B5442E-Z4E will go, unfortunately even fully zoomed out it...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Hello Has anyone E891AB's and fixed 5442's pointing in roughly same place so it can be seen the difference. I have just had my orders when I mentioned the NVR cannot handle more than the 8 cameras we have and so I cannot record the new one on it plus the E891AB’s are not picking up good facial...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Very flashy brainegge :). Hopefully a firmware update will fix going forward, even though I know very little chance of that as Lorex only supply such on you actually calling them and complaining and that's obviously if they actually have one and so far no one has found a Dahua one that works.

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Hello saltwater I confirm I do on the 5442 and a Lorex LNB8105X but not the Lorex cameras E891AB which is a newer Lorex I believe some of the forum members have. At least I know now where issue is, the feature seems to have gone walkabout from this model, which unfortunately is the ones that I...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    Hi All, Latest update, I bought a managed 8 port Poe Netgear switch GS308EP-100UKS for £89.99 which was as much as I was going to pay for a unmanaged one, so happy with that. My IPC-B5442E-Z4E should be with me soon as so badly needed as have had no crime in my street for many years and in...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    I am thinking of work arounds myself as currently I was going to upgrade the NVR at a cost of £250 and update a switch from 4 to 8 port at a cost of £90 just to add one more camera. I was even thinking to go to Costco and buy a couple of Ring CCTV cams to see if they are any better at catching...

    Is their better at a reasonable budget ?

    I am just trying to get authorisation from the powers that be (the wife) to order a 16 Port 4K NVR and a 8 Port POE switch, I don't use the ports at all on the NVR as all ran by POE switches but need a NVR that can handle up to 16 Channels. :)
