    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    That is probably the route i will take. Just shelve these cameras for a while. I was not aware previously, but there are several spare 600 line cameras on site to use. Will modify the adapter I made to accept them

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    True, but the user just wanted to replace some cameras, not the the dvr too. System was working fine for his needs. Like i said, i just assumed there was a switch, or parallel signal outputs. Never was aware of anything you guys have mentioned.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    On the AIM that I just connected, there are communication options on PTZ screen, but no resolution. I get a bunch of wavy type horizontal lines. Can't find where I can select anything that you mention. The AIM is definitively a newer OS.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    In the time i spent with it, i could access focus and ptz sub screen, but did not seem to be what i was looking for regarding resolution. I think it has other problems too. Couldn't get to any playback screens. I do have another dvr that i am not using. It is newer. AIM and says h.264 on...

    Ok Perhaps i could access the changes with a different dvr, if it's not possible with the current one

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    I have not. I did try a couple different 650 line cameras and they came right up. So, the camera setup has to be done in the dvr? I naively assumed there would be some sort of switch. Thinking that the old dvr would not have the ability.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    Oh, btw, here is what they look like on the arm mounts i modified. If you look close, you can see the aluminum plate i used to adapt the bolt patterns.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    Well, I ended up getting a couple of the HAC-HDW2231R-Z cameras. Supposed to be dual mode hd and sd. When i connected one to the dvr, that channel showed a solid green screen There is no indication on how to switch between sd and hd. Is that my problem? Thanks

    Dahua motion detect recording delay

    Not completely, there is still a delay. I had the anti-dither set to 1 sec. Just changed it to 0.5 I will admit that I have not spent much time changing settings for sensitivity and threshold. I don't want too many false alarms and had the S set at 60 and T at 30. I just now changed S to...

    How do you all watch Dahua cams on your tv's

    Not sure what happened with the login problem. Was fine, then nit, then fine again. I just waited. Well, looks like both cameras in tinycam are the same cam in my system. Both have the ip of my NVR, not the cameras themselves

    How do you all watch Dahua cams on your tv's

    Repoting back... I purchased the HK1 with 7.1.2. Connected via ethernet. Installed gDMSS, but could not get it working. It seems like gDMSS needs wifi. I tried to get wifi connected, but could not. It did not even see my 5g network. Entered password for the slower network, but never found...

    Welcome - I am interested in your wireless bridge setup. What did you use? Check out this thread - some of your questions should be answered. Help a newb with Dahua NVR questions. Probably. No

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    I can't believe my problem is that unique. Wonder if I could put a PFA135 on the end of a PFA110 Just get a 3/4 nipple connected to the PFA110, and then screw the 135 on.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    Well, the camera and the PFB203W have a diameter of about 122 mm. The PFA103 has a diameter of 133. Might be an issue of the bolt holes? The 203 has 2 or 3 sets. Not sure on the 103 - if it i a flat surface that could be drilled in that way. If that is all it is, I can drill and tap those...

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    Yea the arm won't work by it's self- you need the adapter... Sure looks like the PFA103 adapter would work. http://ustest.dahuasecurity.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Datasheet_Mount_Adapter_PFA103_v001_001.pdf And, if it works, heck the arm should too.???

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    I have those mounts on some other cameras, but they don't stick out from the wall far enough. There are some awnings along over some doorways on the building I need to get around a little. I think the PFB302S will get me a few more inches, but I have not seen any dimensions. I really would...

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    There are just so many different camers, with just slight different specs. Makes it hard I guess. I asked Andy about the A22AH9z, and he mentioned these HAC-HDW2231R-Z-DP. The look like startlight and nearly identical specs.

    How do you all watch Dahua cams on your tv's

    So, you didn't already have an NVR? I already have all the cameras connected to an NVR. Just want to monitor them remotely. This is the way I am leaning.. Wonder how it has been going for him, now a few months have passed.

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    OK, so the DVR can't handle the HD signal from that 1080 camera. Needs to be a SD camera, or switchable. Like a A21BM0V Dahua A21BM0V 2MP IR Indoor/Outdoor Dome HD-CVI Security Camera - $108.00 New cables not an option at this time. DVR still works and video quality is acceptable for the...

    Replacing/upgrading BNC cameras on Ganz DR4N

    So I have a Ganz DR4N with a few cameras on it. Dated, but working fine, except a couple of the cameras are starting to fail. The DR4N is 704x480 I guess. I want the best quality camera practical. I am looking at the HAC-HDW2221EM-A Looks like it a 1080 camera. Would that signal be...
