Hi,
New member here and new to cctv. Just want to say Hi, just purchased a Hikvision nvr model ds-7608ni-e2/8p/a 8 port, hopefully will be dropping in and asking questions on how to setup and which cameras will work with it.
Thanks

:welcome:
------------------------------------------
Be careful with the cameras used with the NVR. Some Hikvision NVRs will not support Chinese hacked Hikvision cameras.
------------------------------------------
My standard welcome to the forum message.

Please read the IP Cam Talk Cliff Notes and other items in the IP Cam Talk Wiki. The wiki is in the blue bar at the top of the page.

Read How to Secure Your Network (Don't Get Hacked!) in the wiki also.

Quick start
1) If you do not have a wired monitored alarm system, get that first
2) Use Dahua starlight cameras or Hikvision darkfighter cameras or ICPT Night eye cameras (Store | IP Cam Talk) if you need good low light cameras.
3) use a VPN to access home network (openVPN)
4) Do not use wifi cameras.
5) Do not use cloud storage
6) Do Not use uPNP, P2P, QR, do not open ports,
7) More megapixel is not necessarily better.
8) Avoid chinese hacked cameras (most ebay, amazon, aliexpress cameras(not all, but most))
9) Do not use reolink, ring, nest cameras (they are junk), no cloud cameras
10) If possible use a turret camera , bullet collect spiders, dome collect dirt and reflect light (IR)
11) Use only solid copper, AWG 23 or 24 ethernet wire. , no CCA (Copper Clad Aluminum)
12) use a test mount to verify the camera mount location. My test rig: rev.2
13) (Looney2ns)If you want to be able to ID faces, don't mount cams higher than 8ft. You want to know who did it, not just what happened.
14) Use a router that has openVPN built in (Most ASUS, Some NetGear....)
15) camera placement use the calculator... IPVM Camera Calculator V3

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
if you are interested in Dahua and some hikvision cameras, a forum member sells dahua and ships world wide. You can read some of the members recommendations on his service. He also provides cameras to other forum member for evaluation and reviews. His cameras are all 100% international (upgradable), some are the IPC brand but are actually 100% original manufacture dahua or hikvision
you can email him for a quote, or purchase from his Aliexpress store or his Amazon store.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Just wondering ... Did you buy that NVR new or used?
Be aware that it's a discontinued product that has old firmware and does not support h.265
That's something you'd get many benefits from as you research your camera choices.

Purchased it second hand with latest firmware, thanks I was not aware that it did not support h.265, was recently looking at the DH-IPC-HDW2431T-AS-S2 camera.
