Hi all,

I am using a 4M IP CAMERA Dahua DH-IPC-HFW2431TP controlled by smartPSS and PC-NVR : I am doing video tracking of animals during 72h (I am a biologist).
I work on local. The camera is directly connected to the computer via ethernet cable.

I record continuously and export from the smartPSS playback, movies of 60min duration.
Anyone knows here, how to set another duration? For technical reason I need 20min....unfortunately impossible to find this parameter to change in the software smartPSS.
I can find it using IE, directly on the camera. But it does not affect what the NVR is doing.

Thank for any help.

Log into the DVR. Under Settings -> Storage -> Basic you'll find Create Video Files

This can be adjust by time (what you're looking for) or file size.

Hey thank you for this information.
But I am using a NVR (and not a DVR, unless it was a mispelling) through the smartPSS (DahuaWiki) software.
I don't know if this is a bug in the actual version of the sofware but I don't find any duration to set in the parameters of the storage.

My mistake. I should have put NVR.

You'll have to log into the NVR directly. I don't believe you can change this through smartPSS.

I see...But how to access to the NVR directly.
I am using the PC-NVR which installed same time as smartPSS and there no interface to access it.

Unless you know if I can install another NVR which has a user interface?

Log into the smartPSS on the PC. It should be a similar setup to my screenshot.

The other alternative is to log into the camera and find the same setting under Settings. You can download the videos you're want from the Playback tab.

It seems we have a different version of the software to control the camera.
I do not have the possibility to change the movie length duration in the same setting area in my smartPSS version.

If I go directly on the camera, there is the possibility to change the length of the video. But it seems the NVR does not care and use it's own setting which is set (somewhere) to 60min.

Is it possible to get your sofware? What is it?

I'm during a Dahua NVR. Is there a Storage tab in your options?

Within the smartPSS software?

in the DeviceCFG , I can only set parameters of the camera (not the NVR). Where there is a storage option. I can screenshot you what I have (in 2 days from now)

Here is few screenshot of what I have in my version of smartPSS, where I think I should find this parameter.....but actually not.

And here, if I access the camera through Internet Explorer I find it (Pack Duration). But it does not affect in any way how the PC NVR record the video.
