    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Right. For some reason all the popup window settings changed when I got the VPN going. I "allowed popups" for my NVR address and now working. Go figure!? Problem is, may cam's are 192.168.50.xxx:10080...10081....10082..... I can open all except the 1st, withe abovementioned error of a warning...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    As is my modus-operandi, I make sure that when I get something working, I break something else!! New issue: - since I got OpenVPI up and running, I can't access cams individually. That is, if I log into the NVR (192.168.50.xxx), no worries. But if I then go to "Cameras", I get the usual list...

    Review-OEM IPC-T5241H-AS-PV 2mp AI active deterrence cam

    Hi guys. Been using this cam for some time with few issues. I keep playing around with settings and it's getting dialled in. A few things I wanted to ask: - I have been successfully using the "strobe" function + "voice deterrent"., but: a) I am yet to figure out how to record and use a...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Further: - all working now. It turned out to be an issue with the WAN address issued by my interwebs provider. Now all working well, and I can see my cams via my Dahua NVR using the DMSS app. Great! I just worked my way through the link provided. Thanks guys. Now onto remote access to...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Ok. Next questions that are hurting my head guys! 1. If I'm at home, and the VPN is not installed on a client (or is installed and turned off), shouldn't I be able to access my router at its "normal" address (192.168........)? 2. The VPN seems to work (I trialed a username and password on my...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Tried both. Also tried a laptop directly into router via Ethernet to make sure it wasn’t switch or something else..... Addit: So went back to the guide (above) and, rather than logging into my router with 192.168.50.xxx, I used https://[name of my VPN}.asuscomm.com:8443 This got me back into...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Ok. 1st issue. I initiated the Open VPN following the link above from Wittaj, which seemed to go ok. One problem now is for some reason I cannot login to my Asus router's GUI as I normally do. It usually resides at 192.168.50.1, where my home network is 192.168.50.xxx. I just get "unable to...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Thanks guys. Most helpful. I'll have a go at OpenVPN. - Flint, they are screenshots of my Router's GUI. It has the three VPN configurations on offer, built into the router it seems - Toastie, as a beginner, I'm afraid I didn't follow a single word of your post! I'm also unfamiliar with...

    How to remotely view cam's and use NVR from portable devices?

    Hi again all and I hope all is well! I've left my NVR/cam's alone for a while to just see if they all work well enough, and so far so good. So next is to sort out remote access - am I correct in saying a VPN setup is the best way to do this? If so, I'm new to VPN's and would love a little...

    Help finding a wall bracket for a Dahua bullet IPC-B5442T-ASE to see around a corner

    Help finding a wall bracket for a Dahua bullet IPC-B5442T-ASE to see around a corner

    HI all. Have a look at my dodgy drawing. I've installed a bunch of cams with no issues. This one needs to be mounted on a side wall, but "see" around the corner. I have a matching mounting baseplate PFA130-E, however it will bring the base of the cam (circular plate) off the wall by only...

    IPC-T5442T-ZE IPC-T5442TM-AS latest new firmware General_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_NP_Stream3_V2.800.15OG004.0.R.201203

    I keep getting stuck on "Rebooting, please wait" when trying to update firmware. I'm logging directly into camera (t5241h-as-pv) IP, via the blue "explorer icon" on the NVR, and go to "upgrade". Keeps getting stuck at reboot stage. Ideas? Cheers, Mat

    Sorry Andy I don't understand? I am still getting stuck on the "rebooting, please wait", with a completed orange taskbar. Nothing happens after that. Does this mean the update is finished, even though it's saying "please wait"? And thanks Panda, but my setup uses 192.168.50.....numbers. I...

    Hi guys/Andy, Just trying to update this firmware onto my IPC-t5241h-as-pv Can I please check I'm doing it correctly: I went to link I downloaded the .BIN file I logged into my cam directly (using the blue web symbol for that cam via the main NVR web interface) I put in the BIN file under "file...

    Want to start afresh. Ideal setup to watch Clips from Dahua NVR?

    Hi again all. To start, here’s my setup: NVR - Dahua DHI-NVR5216-16p-4ks2e (2x4TB drives) Cams - I have a range of recent Dahua cam’s: ipc-t5241h-as-pv, 2x ipc-t5442tm-as, etc......(6 in total) The house (including cams) is wired with CAT6. All cam’s connected directly to NVR, then NVR...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Ah yeah. It’s all coming back. Again a little help! - I take it the “ANR” means a cam will record to an installed SD if the network is down? - what’s “M&A”? - assume I ignore all the “POS” (point of sale) stuff? - I have a house alarm but keeping it separate for now. It’s physically...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    I’ve left the cam’s as they were, and all the various settings/rules have remained. I have made sure that p2p is disabled on each of them. Out of interest, when I go to a cam, and look at “TCP/IP” under network, I notice the default gateway (which I have always assumes means the address of my...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    No worries. I’ll do that and see what happens! Bloody annoying as someone asked me if I’d seen anyone steal a bag off her bike the other day, and I don’t seem to be able to access the footage. It should have been recording, as the cam’s functions such as light coming on if tripped after hours...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Ok update time. I ended up factory resetting the NVR. I suspect the primary issue - not being able to access the NVR at all (even though it seemed to be running) - was that my old router assigned IP’s between 192.168.1.1 and .253, whereas my NEW router uses 192.168.50.1.... So when I reset the...

    Dahua has a new water proof junction box PFA130-E / PFA130E for Turrets ( PFA137, PFA139 )

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Roger that. The thing is that I don’t recall ever turning on the P2P. I must’ve done something silly whilst on the initial learning curve. I’ll try the suggested as soon as I get a chance (it’s a pain unplugging it all to dig out of cupboard, plug in a monitor and mouse, etc. should get a...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    I reckon it may well be time to start from scratch with a factory reset and set it up properly again. At least I know how to do the cams and their special functions now. Otherwise I fear I’m gonna keep hitting these weird snags as I go. On that note, I have read here that I should enable a...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Ok now we’re onto something. I had ensured p2p was disabled on the setup, however it’s coming up as p2p on the iDMSS+ app..... I’ll look into it!

    ***PSA for those with a New DAHUA NVR with Built-in PoE switch

    I notice you have a 192.168.50.1 address for you router. I've just upgraded to a new Asus NT-AX86U from an old Asus. Previously, the router allocated 192.168.1.xxx numbers, and now I get 192.168.50.xxx I have lost the ability to simply type the IP of the NVR in a browser to access its GUI...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Yeah DHCP had been off. I had assigned 192.168.50.2 as a static address for the NVR, so I thought I'd try removing that and see what happens. Yes, I can still see the cam's via IDMSS when they're all plugged in. Weird indeed.... So what settings should I insert when I try turning off DHCP on...

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    I suspect this is all to do with when I got my new router (upgraded from older Asus to new one). All my addresses changed from (more familiar) 192.168.1.xxx to 192.168.50.xxx...... Given I might also have some dodgy setups from my 1st initial setup, should I start over?

    Where did my Dahua NVR GUI access go?

    Ok. Here’s a few screenshots. The “test” function is coming up “connection failed”.... My Asus router has a LAN address at 192.168.50.1
