    Is Hikvision etc safe?

    So what standalone nvr is everyone recommending these days? Been running hikvision for years. Of course its not opened to the internet. I also run a blue iris system so im very familiar with it. Looking to update my older hikvision 7616e2 and simply wondering what I should go for. Would love...

    Options for a multi-purpose always on machine

    You ever looking into an ESXI server? Once you go this route, you never really go back. Run as many things you want on it. I have one running my blue iris with a ubiquiti cloud server and unms server. All different operating systems. More ram the better (luckily its cheap right now), and the...

    blue iris main benefits over current model NVR?

    I run both. I use blue iris as a backup system. Very happy with hikvision nvr. I always used to run software based nvr units (back from the geovision days) but I just like standalone hardware nvrs more. They never crash and you can set it and forget it. They also have a lower power draw than a...

    Running BI in Virtualbox, will Intel hardware acceleration work?

    Recommended security settings for Hikvision NVR and router

    Dont think you can do this with ASUS routers. I personally run pfsense. You can set up a VLAN and only allow your hikvision on that network. I also use this for my IOT devices. I would disable all port forwarding and use openvpn to access NVR I see no harm in blocking outgoing traffic from nvr...

    Latest Cameras and software

    Id also recommend clearling all dns servers in the network settings. This fully prevents it from reaching the outside internet (unless hikvision has backup dns servers in code)

    HIK Vision Ds 7616NI, how to use the other 8 ports?

    A better option is get a 16 port POE and have the cameras all static ip and not hooked up to the nvr. That is my personal opinion on how these cameras should be installed. This allows camera access to any other program you may be using "for example blue iris". It also lets you hide the nvr...

    Added new HikVision cameras to old NVR, now they don't work on the new one?

    That is normal. If you setup nvr with new cameras it applies nvr default password. Did you buy them on aliexpress? I always recommend factory resetting those cameras since they sometimes come preprogrammed with the shady vendors hikconnect account

    Hik-connect question

    HIKVision NVR setup is driving me crazy.

    I had an asus router and am very familiar with the system. Use OPENVPN for your VPN server. Easiest and most secure. Make sure you have a DDNS name setup in case your IP address ever changes. With asus its "" Go to your users under openvpn and export the config file...
