    My Hikvision cameras are hAckEd ..

    Just for your knowledge : Huawei provide the chipsets (HISILICON) for Hikvision & Dahua. And now Huawei enters in the compétition loop with very aggressive prices and a large range of cams, face to n°1&2. So there is no best or bad cam ; you just got the quality you paid for. Hik & Dahua are...

    Bricked 2032. Not on network

    Like I said in another post, the solution is to use the 4 points connector with a small interface (like jtag), to unbrick, place new firmware and so on. All range of Hik products have this connector for service issues. And this is from where the FW, modified FW were applied from grey market by...

    Setting up DS-7108N-SN/P with cameras

    OK, The most easy is to use PC NVR. It will always work correctly and you can mix all version cams. HIK made it like this to protect domestic and overseas market, because different price for same product lines.

    Setting up DS-7108N-SN/P with cameras

    I assume all cams were seen from SADP first, right range, right username and PW and all activated? The recorder also seen from SADP ? From recorder itself, you will be able to delete and declare the cams. In some situations, if the FW of the cam is upper to NVR delivered version, then you can...

    DS-2CD2532F-IS Bricked - Help Please

    For this kind of issues, discussing with Hik, the only solution to reverse FW and unbreak the cam, is to use the internal 4 pin port of the cam and a small interface connected to RS232 laptop. All cams have this connector and allow to force FW, downgrade, etc. I saw this small device but I don't...

    Hardware clock

    Some elements to try. 1°) Try to simple sync the cam with your local computer (without NTP) normally must to works. 2°) If it's ok, then choose NTP option, place the IP of your NTP server then "TEST" button to check if you have positive message from you cam saying the link is OK. 3°) Chose...

    Hardware clock

    The best here is to install an NTP server in one of your PC. Personally, I use "Meinberg", who is free. I install it on my PC NVR to synch all my system. For settings, you have an option on each cam. Just needs to enter the IP adress of the machine where the NTP server was installed. Works like...

    RE: HikVision Setup

    I'm not saying to use mandatory a PC, but more an NVR without POE Embedded. Means POE is external to NVR PC is useful for live monitoring or footage playback, export , that's it. For a PC based NVR, the best is to use a Dell server like R210, cheap and robust. But this is my personal choice ....

    Something to note about Amazon and HIK

    Talking with HIK, outside China, official FW is 5.2.5, that's it. They don't plan to make an unified firmware as their strategy was to differenciate the different local and foreign markets distribution, and firmware was the only way to preserve a little this marketing choice. So hacks will exist...

    RE: HikVision Setup

    My thoughts here : 1°) Cat5/6/7 it's not really important here for residencial use. each cam will use 4Mbps so no worries here. Of course cat6 is the most common and can accept 1Gb bandwith... Even with 100 cams at 4 Mbps, it's more than suitable. So it's only costs. But if you can choice...

    ds- 2cd2032- i ch keep rebooting every 5-10 minute

    What I'm saying : I never saw a cam 5.2.8 multilanguage working without rebooting every 5 min. Conclusion 5.2.8 only works correctly in Chineese, that's it... But maybe some one found a way to having it working without the need to downgrade to 5.2.5 ? Personally, CBX fixed my cam with 5.2.8, but...

    ds- 2cd2032- i ch keep rebooting every 5-10 minute

    5.2.8 cannot work in English, as far as i know. So you need to downgrade to 5.2.5, then patch the cam to have it 99% in English (day of week will still stay in Chineese if you use the OSD). Other option is to go to CBX who will provide you a 100% English v 5.2.5 But I don't know yet if some...

    IR LED Replacement

    My thoughts here are more: use 850nm Led than 940nm. 850nm are just a little visible but more accurate than 940nm who is invisible to our eyes. 850nm provides better field view at night than 940nm. And of course 99% of the standard cams are made for 850 nm. To the question : Can I use similar...
