    More zoom would be extremely helpful.

    HDW5231R-Z IVS send email with Snapshot

    There is no way to prevent 2 emails sending for each rule. Just setup a rule in your email to auto delete the one without an attachment. I do not believe there is a way to limit the number of emails. You could try adjusting the "Record Delay" setting under Event -> IVS

    New Smart PSS V2.003.0000000.0.R.190802

    Upgraded. As an FYI, I had to provide the username and password for each of the cameras in Configuration -> Devices. Otherwise all good and 64bit

    If you are ordering an 8 channel NVR, then you wont get the 9th camera to work. NVR channels >= number of cameras

    Plate Recognizer for ALPR

    My guess is either: 1. Not enough zoom 2. detection area too small 3. combination of 1 & 2

    Dahua Starlight Fixed Lens Turret (IPC-HDW4231EM-AS)

    The 2231 might be the replacement you are looking for.

    Dahua Camera auction in Florida for those interested

    Watch the quantity you are buying. The bid price is 1, but then multiplied by the quantity. It may be worth it if I get some items to fly down and pick them up!!!

    New version of Smart PSS

    I pulled up yesterday's feed from my cameras and I'm seeing the entire day. It doesn't show the full recording, but rather only the events.

    Repurpose NVR case fan to CPU fan - easy!

    You may have gained CPU cooling, but you probably have hurt the PoE cooling (if you have a PoE NVR). You may also have inadvertently raised the temperature of nearby components as the heatsink discharge air is being blown across the motherboard components. I'm not saying it is a bad idea, but...

It will list the camera...

    Safe to run Cat6 Ethernet through same hole as AC Power?

    Similar to a special forces saying: two is one, and one is none.

    Lightning strike issue

    They will handle a 5,000A pulse with a 8/20uS wave form. It will provide some protection, but a direct or nearby strike will probably smoke right through it (20kA would be better). There is a lot of engineering behind lighting protection and a lot to understand on the specific standards. Here...

    Safe to run Cat6 Ethernet through same hole as AC Power?

    Nope, it would just act as a magnifying affect. It would need to be grounded to the same potential as the building system to be shielded.

    Looking to revamp current security system...need some suggestions please

    Welcome!! You inherited a "not so good" system. Refer to the Cliff Notes in the Wiki above. What kind of budget do you have? A Dahua 2231 (assuming you don't want audio recording) will probably be your best bet for low cost, but awesome camera. It's a turret vs. a dome, so it may look a bit...

    LaView Camera on EZVIZ NVR

    Couple things to start with: 1. can you power it separately from the NVR and access it? eg. plug it into a poe switch/injector and access the camera directly 2. If you can do 1, are both devices ONVIF compliant? First see if the camera is even working, then go on from there.

    Lightning strike issue

    Ultimately, in a direct/near strike, something will be sacrificed. It's just a mater of what :)

    Lightning strike issue

    You can get LAN lighting protectors, but you need them on both ends of longer runs (150' or so). You will need to watch out as some of them only have protection on 6 wires vs. all 8 and be sure that you get a POE compatible device. The only real way to protect the NVR is to optically isolate the...

    Lightning strike issue

    Don't have multiple grounding points. Everything must be bonded together (permanently). Only have 1!!!! A #10 or #12 is not sufficiently sized to help in a lightning strike to dissipate the energy. Multiple grounds means you more than likely have a difference of potential and when that...
