    Amazon/Ring Drone Security Cam LOL

    I would love that thing to take off in my house with three dogs when I am not home. I would be more worried about the damage the dogs would do chasing it, then the idiot breaking in. In the video, nice locks on the sliding door. :(

    Thoughts on my proposed setup.

    Run the cables directly to the camera. I do not like patch panels for small system, Then connect them to the POE ports on the NVR. Test each camera in the NVR before installing, using a short premade cable. After you plug in a camera to the NVR, make sure to plug the same camera into the same...

    Caught door checkers in the act!

    With the white light you have , try mounting a cheap camera on the edge of the fence next to the sidewalk, to get faces. Cops in large cities are useless for this kind of call.

    PC drives

    The WD purple drive is the way to go. My 4 TB purple has been running for more than 2 years, 24/7/365, with 10 cameras writing continuously. I strongly recommend the WD purple for surveillance. I have use a Samsung 860 EVO 120GB for my system C drive for over 2 years. This is for the...

    Which IP Cam is Open and Secure?

    There are NO open source cameras. Camera security is done by correctly configuring your network, isolating your cameras from the internet. I lived in Naples Italy, 1958 to 1962. I lived at 176 via Posillipo. That was a long long time ago... :)

    Is Blueiris a good software for desktop and mobile?

    It is recommend that you use a Standalone business grade desktop PC. A lot of user problems are a result of not doing a clean install of windows 10 and running other crap on the computer. The system needs to run 24/7/365. Think of the BI PC as an NVR. It has one job, record and process home...

    Unable to view cameras on 4G, only wifi works

    Your 4G provider can be blocking the data. Not familiar with the UK 4G providers. P2P is not recommend , it is a security risk. I recommend setting up a VPN connection (openVPN) .

    New system for parents (and other questions)

    Start with one good quality variable focus camera, test the camera at night with the "Bad Guy" wearing a hoodie looking down. If you can not ID them then your camera is in the wrong place. As a note, I have two cameras mounted on the garage one on each side no higher than the top of the...

    The Dreaded GAP. Very Frustrated New User

    the i5-6400T is a low power laptop type CPU. I do not think that this type of system is designed to run 24/7/365 at a ++50% load. You may be overheating the processor and memory. Did you do a clean install of windows 10? As a test remove the case on the computer and put a fan blowing on...

    Would your setup be able to ID these suspects

    That is not a great neighborhood, I use to live about 2 miles from there. This is why I have a carry license, and have a pistol mounted and ready to go in my truck. My wife also has one in her car. Also DO NOT PARK in the drive way. Better camera placement. Good idea about backing in to the garage.

    I can not open the storage tab (any tab, only version) in the web configurator.

    Your software is very old. You may be running into web browser security issues. On a dahua camera it is normal to have the model number on the version tab. Where did you buy the camera, if it is a Chinese hack camera, you may be out of luck. Try using the Dahua config tool to access the camera .

    The SD card may be bad. Most of my good SD cards last about a year in the Houston Texas heat. The cheap SD cards sometimes last less than 3 months. The software on that camera is very old. What make and model camera.
