    Hikvision NVR -- Exporting Playback Pictures

    Hik 9632 NVR -- see model and firmware in attachment. I am having no success in saving larger picture files captured during playback. Videos of any size are no problem. If the picture (jpg) is greater than 500KB it will write a file to the USB drive but have a 0KB file size. Anything under that...

    Hikvision SMART Detection

    I have a Hik 9632 NVR and (5) Hik 2132 and (9) Hik 2232 cameras along with 4 other cameras. I noticed that one of the newer 2232 cameras had V5.3.0 firmware and with motion detection disabled but sensitivity set above 0, I get the green SMART ticks on playback when there is motion. I updated all...

    Hikvision NVR Web Browser Playback Failure

    I had a 7716 NVR and now a 9632 NVR and both have same issue. When I log into NVR from a PC connected behind the same router as the NVR I can do everything but get playback to work. Live view works perfectly. In playback menu, I select the camera and it shows the available days, but after...

    Automatically Open and Close VPN

    Is there a way to have VPN open and close automatically when opening or closing an app? Specifically I use OpenVPN and IVMS4500. Wife complains about the additional step and then never turns it off.

    Finally a bird house camera

    We have had a pair of Northern Flickers nest in a birdhouse the past two years. I finally found a mini Ip camera with 940nm LEDs that is also POE. Attached is a picture, just the wood chips since the house is empty right now. Wife can't wait for the spring. We are hoping one will use the house...

    Hikvision DS-2DF8236I-AEL PTZ

    Looking at this camera to patrol my front yard and gravel road in front. Camera will be about 250' from the road. Using a focal length calculator it appears that I can easily read license plates with zoom during the day. With the smart IR will I be able to read the plates at night? Normally I...

    Think I am ok with this but not sure

    Love Hikvision cameras and have 12 of them wired to a 7716 NVR. I have a tractor shed a few hundred feet away with power. Kids recently took a few things and wife feels less secure now. Looking to put a camera down there but do not look forward to trenching in cable. I can get a weak wifi signal...

    WiFi camera record to NVR

    Can't figure out how to get a 2432 WiFi camera to record to 7716 NVR? My NVR sees it, but I can't figure out how to set the NVR to record from the camera. BTW these are both english version Hikvision devices.

    7716 NVR Recording Problem

    I had a 7716 for about 2 months with all HiKvision cameras. Installed (4) 4TB hard drives and 11 cameras set for continuous record. All was unicorns and rainbows. Two weeks I installed a 12th camera and set up exactly the same as others. I keep getting a recording exception for CH12 and...
