    Password reset for Hikvision NVR

    I purchased a refurbished NVR from Nelly's. Turns out that it's still activated and I cannot do a password reset because it's not a US model (also a nice surprise). I've tried all of the password reset options I can find. Does anyone have any ideas how to reset this guy? NSN-108W-500G Software...

    HIKVision DS-7216HGHI-SH bricked or dead?

    Bought a second hand DS-7216HGHI-SH. Was told that just power adapter is missing. I have added regular 12V DC socket in parallel, so I can use standard 12V connector. In process I have noticed that all four 470u/10V caps were swollen, so replaced all caps just in case. On board battery CR-1220...

    After emailing with the company who hired malik.seo619@gmail.com using upwork it appears they were unaware of his actions. They were also apologetic and didnt try to lie like many other spammers we have seen. I am therefore deleting the post.

    Uniview URDB1 - A doorbell with great image quality, Onvif/RTSP streams, and EXIR, but no mechanical/digital doorbell support.

    When I heard about Uniview's doorbell, I was immediately excited to try it out and got my hands on it that same week, thanks to some great connections that I have in the CCTV world. I was already on the lookout for a replacement to my Hikvision doorbell, and it seemed to meet all my requirements...

    Has anyone gotten a Dahua camera to work in iVMS-4500?

    Hey, I have a friend who bought some Dahua IP cams. He already uses iVMS-4500 for his Hikvision DVR, which I've gotten to work with off-brand IP cameras but never a Dahua camera. I would rather not tell him he has to get a new app to view his new cameras, so I thought I'd ask to see if anyone...

    Anyone have 2.8 -12mm vs 8-32mm lens examples? DS-2CD4535FWD-iZH8

    Hi, I have an old DS-2CD4535FWD-iZH8 I found and the 8-32mm doesn't seem like that much of an additional zoom compared to my 2.8-12mm Dahua 3mp cameras. Does anyone have a video or example of what the difference in view may be between a 12mm lens and 32mm normally?
