    Dahua NVR4216-16P-4KS2 - no hdd alarm?

    I have an NVR4216-16P-4KS2 in the field that I installed in 2017 with a 4tb WD Purple hdd. They called me today telling me that they had an issue in the office that they needed to view but couldn't playback anything.

    Simple Hikvision NVR question

    I have Blue Iris pretty well figured out but have never played around or installed an NVR. I have a friend with an existing Hik 24 port POE NVR that is full and he wants to add 3 more cameras. Can I just use a POE switch (or 1 to 4 POE splitter) and add these cameras or does he need to get a...
