Home security includes the hardware and software in place to monitor and protect property, and personal security practices. The hardware can include the doors, locks, alarm systems, lighting, motion detectors, and cameras systems; the software can include applications connected to smart systems in your home or business or electronic surveillance systems provided by vendors. Personal security practices would be ensuring doors are locked, alarms activated, windows closed and many other routine tasks which act to prevent misfortunes.

Hi,

I would like advice or a recommendation for security cameras that would have good color detail at night.
My cameras show fuzzy images in the shadows. :)

What would I look at to pick a very good color detail day and night?
Zoom in ability?
180 degree turn ability and ? tilt 45 degrees?

I am thinking of getting a couple more cameras to see how I like them at my house.
Then may add to my rental house.

Should I look at anything else that I missed?

Thank you,
BillC

Got this cam Samsung from Costco SNH-V6431BN/US

I was able to connect to my WiFi but the connection is constantly dropping and I need to re-setup every time after that.  Does it have to be very close to the WiFi router?  Other devices are OK on the same router and not dropping.

2nd question.  Is it only designed for the mobile app?  Manual doesn't provide any instruction via the regular browser.

Thanks.

I have a security camera project that requires a run of about 1000FT for a few cameras.

I know Cat5/6 are not options due to the 300ft limitation.  I guess I could use POE switches at 300/600/900 ft as repeaters but that doesn't sound like a viable solution.

any ideas?

My customer had some else install a QSEE HD QTH4 Video/System   NTSC/PAL   Serial Number: QTH41509220168. He tried to contact the installer and they will not return any of his calls. He does not have the setup info or a manual for the system. I am trying to reset the admin password for him but have not been successful.

How do I reset the admin password so that he can have access to the system? If I have to do a factory reset please email the instructions please.

Will you send me a link to the setup manual and user manual so that I can print them out for my customer.

Trying to set up internet for home use with the ability to fail over to a second internet connection (such as cellular). Since my phone and security system are both internet based, I just want to see if there is a (cheap) way to ensure device connections stay up if the primary internet goes down. Since the phone and security devices are not tied to a particular external IP, having them suddenly move to a different external IP is not a cause for concern.

I know best practice for business is to fail over to a different ISP, but since this is for home use I'll say that isn't required here.

I'll figure out which ISPs later. Right now just looking for hardware recommends and how it should be configured.

I am looking for an outdoor security camera that can view an area remotely on a rural property. The area has excellent cell service on all major cell service providers, but no internet access. So I am looking for a single camera system that can be mounted on a light pole and stream video through a major cell provider like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, & T-Mobile. This is my main requirement to answer this question.

Optionally, the camera would be able to:
  • Take time laps images
  • Move PTO and Zoom
  • Saves data for later use
  • Operate on solar power
If any of these features are included in the answer, it would be a better answer.

I realize that I can MacGyver a few systems together to make a solution, such as using a WIFI security camera with a WIFI LTE HotSpot device, but I am hoping to find an all-in-one solution that will reduce complexity and the chance of a disconnection/support.

i need port 85 open to view my qsee camera when out of network, i got port 37777 to work and i can view my camera when connecting to same network, so i just copied and pasted port 37777 screen when setting up port 85, so everything is the same except port number, it could save it ok, but when tested on canyouseeme.org only port 37777 open, not port 85

Hello Everyone,
I don't know much about security Camera except Firewall port forwarding. I am assuming that the DVR is failing and may have to be replaced, Please let me have your opinion.

Recently nothing has been changed in this environment.  But Mr. Patrol app fails with an error  "IP or port invalid."
If I turn OFF/ON the DVR then MR. Patrol works for a while but next day it fails again until I Turn Off/ON the DVR again.

Please Advise.

 DVR (Model DVST PST960H-16)

I'm using Synology DS-1515+ with hikvision DVRs as a backup storage , the problem is : sometimes some DVRs (not all) change the status of NAS storage shared folder to "offline" instead of "Normal" and this will stop taking a backup of those DVRs.
my question is why this happens ? and how can i avoid this problem in future.

Note: I created multiple shared folders (one for each DVR)

thanks and waiting your reply

I cannot find the "space/space bar" button. It has every character, number, upper, lower, etc. BUT I cannot seem to find the space bar. I'm trying to setup my WiFi (which is hidden) and my SSID has a space in the name.

Anyone know where the "space" button is?

Thank you!

HI dear,
Apologies in case i didn't use correct terminology, and excuses for my english, after reading the latest leaks regarding zero year and so on... and after checking the leaks from hacking team company last year and discovering that my goverment was on the list with a contract for their softwear and servers etc..

The concerns are and will be for the below right now:

Knowing that nothing is totaly safe and we need to update our knowledge cyber wise,

I want to secure my house from unauthorized access to every device in it such as the:
- door video bell which is connected to  internet through wifi
- Cctv which is also connected to internet
- smart tv wich will be connected
- smart devices which i need to control it through tablets connected also to internet
-pc that will run softwear for the above smart devices such as dimmer and relays and smart sensors curtains ir and rf repeater devices.

Now i will share what i did and what i think i can do and if anyone could please let me know if its fine or not.
 
-I will use the network port instead of the wifi for door bell even if it will limit the function and i mentioned the door bell because it can unlock the main door of my flat which is assembled not purchased ready, to avoid any complications. But still i need to secure the router and to acces the service i have to use the cloud service provided by the seller which is not safe for sure.

-I had to buy 2 Dvr one will be for inside the house and wont …
