    POE for PTZ cameras

    Why do you think it would take the camera out? Personally I've never seen a TP-Link switch die. I've installed a bunch of them. You are welcome to go with a better brand my point simply was avoid the real cheap stuff like BV tech.

    POE for PTZ cameras

    Its better if you anticipate needing the extra power budget. otherwise the tp link is fine. Netgear also has a 63w version of the same switch for 63 bux

    POE for PTZ cameras

    Stay away from these sub brand switches like bvtech. This is one of the most integral parts of your setup. Go with the tp link over the bv tech.

    Noisy Surveilance Hard Drives HDD?

    Don't be an ungrateful dick about the responses given to you. You asked if there is a solution or workaround and the response is there is none You have to buy a new drive. Even among the same model there are noise variances... So go look at the Amazon reviews and the comments about noise with...

    Problems with custom port changes

    Well if you keep being a dumbass and ripping off your customers while endangering their network security we have no choice but to call you out on it. Essentially you dont know what you are doing and want free advice so that you can go charge your customers without disclosing to them that your...

    Which UPS for 24 hr CCTV backup?

    No one is concerned with car alarms because they're not monitored and it's a quick job... That's why I'm a proponent of having a camera with a built-in speaker over the driveway or some other type of speaker... I have mindset to play an audio file demanding that they leave. The only time this...

    Which UPS for 24 hr CCTV backup?

    lol, this is not oceans 11. Any newer alarm system is dual path or has the option of being dual path. Police dont respond to alarms quickly because there is no verification. When there is video verification of alarms they respond crazy fast. This is where a camera system with AI and low false...

    Problems with custom port changes

    This is unfortunate for your clients. How are you holding yourself out as an installer when you dont understand the basic principles of how the NVR works as well as beginner security protocols. You have no idea whether the p2p systems have been hacked - you have no technical skill to make that...

    Blue Iris Random Triggering Problem

    1) you are using BI 4 which is 4 years old. I would suggest upgrading to v5 for only 35 bux. 2) your make time is set to 1.0 seconds not the .3 you stated in your op. Lower it to at least .7 maybe .3. 3) lower the object size to the absolute minimum 4) your keyframes are at .30 rather than 1...

    REINSTALL BlUE IRIS

    I would suggest reinstalling windows using the MS media creation tool. What do you mean "working on windows 10" and "inadvertently" deleing BI, you have to intentionally do it. If you were messing with the registry, certainly reinstalling windows and stop playing with it. Home - Blue Iris...

    Which UPS for 24 hr CCTV backup?

    Do you have an alarm system? That is the most important piece of equipment. If you are not around to respond the video will likely do you little good. That is why you only need a few cams a small switch and a router. This way you can verify and intrusion and get a faster response time from police.

    Which UPS for 24 hr CCTV backup?

    Something like this would cost a fortune if purchased from a manufacture and you would have to replace batteries every few years. You are better off looking into a generator that will automatically kick on when the power goes out. As an alternative you can select the cameras that are essential...

    Hello everyone, it's great to be here. I'm looking for some advice please that I'll expand on within my post for a single camera system.

    Put it outside. Its cheap enough to replace if tampered with. There are various cheap cages you can buy as well.

    PoE Managed Switch

    I dont want or need support for dahua. Unifi could have done the same and provided no end user support or they could charge for it. No headache If you look at my previous post I already said unifi did the math and made a business decision - their product their choice. I dont understand what...

    PoE Managed Switch

    By that logic no other manufacture would support same. 50 other camera manufactures have figured out how to do it - there is a specific agreed upon protocol - onvif. Even developers of commercial VMS that sell their own cameras like avigilon support onvif in their cams.

    BI database compact repair causing 1 hour 20 minute video loss

    What version of BI are you on? Did you install an update that may have caused this? The process should only take a few seconds.

    PoE Managed Switch

    They must have done the math and didnt want to deal with or support onvif. Synology's $50 per camera is reasonable in the vms space that uses per camera licensing's model, though their NAS boxes have severe frame rate or camera limitations particularly at higher resolutions - information they bury.

    That's how the get you :) . But I get it if everything else is unifi. Their cams being locked to unifi is strange. You would think they would want a broader market share....

    PoE Managed Switch

    699 for a 24 port poe switch? Unifi lost their minds long ago. The op was looking at an 89 dollar switch. There is a middle ground of 150-200 managed poe switches.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4

    a quick google search indicates that it supports 15w charging. If this is correct then you will benefit from a 15w charger - higher is fine but it wont charge any faster. Lower is fine but it will take longer to charge.

    PoE Managed Switch

    You are both correct. The P does indicate the POE version and therefore the only P version needs the fans because of the heat generated from POE...This is why the smaller x1008p which is 8 port poe does not have a fan because the load is small enough to dissipate with passive cooling.
