That's what I'm hoping! ISP machine to be used only as a modem (plugged only into adsl master socket and into the billion router), then have the billion connected up to the powerline and to act as router to do all the switching, routing and wifi for everything else.
Well, it's been over a year since I last posted (and since all of my gear turned up).
But last night I set everything up indoors to make sure that everything was working ok, and it is: NVR booted up in English, and I initialised the 3TB hard drive.
I connected the 3 cameras to a PoE switch...
I asked them for English software when I ordered, and also checked they could do it before ordering. Will find out for sure if it has been done next week when the hard drive turns up.
Yeah, I'll never upgrade the firmware on the NVR or the cameras.
My 7816 NVR turned up today. English shell (a little scratched), UK plug, Chinese instructions. Have just ordered a 3TB WD purple drive, so should be able to have the grand turn-on next week, and report back.
Thanks for the help and advice.
I have gone ahead and ordered the following:
NVR (7816N-E2, no PoE):
Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is Hikvision NVR 16CH Network Video Recorder HDMI NVR Up to 6MP / 5MP / 3MP 1000M Engineering project equipment SATA*2 4TB
2 x 2CD2332-I5 EXIR bullet...
Thanks Alastair. I tried contacting the seller on chat to ask if it was an English version, and which firmware it would ship with but I think they'd clocked off for the day and left chat open.
Sounds promising, especially at less than 190 USD.
I too have a QNAP, but I use that as a dedicated...
Are these 7816 units still running ok, and in English? The 7816 model with no PoE is perfect for my needs, but just need some reassurance before I click the button to buy.
It would be teamed up with 3 Hikvision 3MP cameras from Aliexpress (CCTV Camera China), running v5.2.5 multi-language.
Hi All, I'm new on here but have been trying to do a bit of homework before posting.
I'd like to have a 3 camera all-Hikvision with NVR set-up, and I'm a bit ham-strung with wiring, and would like to make use of powerline home plugs for ethernet within the house where possible.
So this is what...
Just joined, from UK. Looking to get thoughts, help and advice from you experienced bunch, and then share my final install.
Plan is for a three IP camera set-up: considering Hikvision 2232 and 2332 3MP cameras, or a ucam247 set-up.
