I am looking for an indoor security camera that will work in a location that will not have access to Internet or a WiFi network.

Furthermore, the camera will need to record video, on motion detection, and store to a SSD memory. Downloading the video should be possible via a local hotspot connection with an Android or iPhone.

The Problem: This may seem like easy requirements but I am tested about five cameras now and found that all of them require a WiFi connection to operate. :(  
The one camera that works without WiFi is an inexpensive "hidden camera" model: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PQK9LKJ 
Unfortunately, this camera isn't acceptable for my requirements. Why? Mostly because the field of view is extremely narrow (about 90 degrees or less).

I think that a solution to this question will help others because I am confident that I'm not the only person who has a need for a recording security camera in a location without WiFi or any form of Internet connection.

My requirements:
- Must be a dedicated single-use security camera.
- Must be designed to be wall mountable.
- At least 720p but higher resolution is better.
- Dome type configuration is ideal.
- Must be a single stand-alone camera with a power (AC or DC) connector.
- The field of view should be about 110 degrees. Although, I suspect that 110 degrees may be a 4K resolution camera (acceptable as long as it's under $250)
- SD memory storage (at least 32GB).
- Cell phone app to …

We have 2 offices that are about 250meters apart. We are yet to install the camera feed in one, but have done for the other years ago. We bought this, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N0B6KSA/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_api_ysh-BbDAEKWAS

But now have an issue. We want the security post to be in simply one location.

Q: How to transmit live video from camera  to another location 250m away, and where is the best place to put the 16 Channel NVR for each, so we can have a security personnel stationed to review

I have a customer who is a General Contractor.  He wants me to add cameras with spotlights to a job site.  He said he could give me a pole with electricity.  I know Ring has a camera with spotlights but I dont think they have built in LTE which is my first thought.  I did some research and found Reolink Go and Arlo Go.  Does anyone have any experience with this cameras or have another solution that we can consider?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

We have a peculiar problem with Panasonic NVRs, of which we have one in each building; two NVRs total.  The model of the NVRs is ND-400 and they are both on the latest firmware.  The problem is that one of the NVRs will not display any camera feeds when logged in with any account other than the admin account, even if the account is given full admin rights.  We've ruled out any network-related questions simply by virtue of the fact that the admin account works.  Beyond that, and updating firmware, we have run out of ideas for fixing this condition.

My cars have been broken into and \i am trying to access my cameras on the DVR to see if it shows the culprit.
When I went onto the DVR it asked for a password but I never had one and assumed it would be something like 1234 or 0000 but it has now locked me out and I cannot access the system for when the police come round.

Please can you help if there is a master reset password?

Hi,

I just ordered Amazon Echo. I saw on the internet that Echo can be connected to Philips' bulbs and you can use voice to control them. I wonder if it is possible that I connect Echo with my Loxone Smart Home?
Thank you in advance:)

Inadvertently shut down my Qsee QT 5680 DVR and so when I power it back up the login menu pops up,I put in the default username administration and the password 123456 and it comes back with user name or password incorrect when I hit the login icon. I have tryed this several timed. I have also noticed when I click on the numbers they double up and I have to back space constantly.

I work for a small firm and we have offices in multiple locations. I am wondering if it is possible or advisable to use a single DVR to connect to IP camera's from different offices. Example, we have an office in Washington DC and an office in Bethesda MD, I was thinking that it may be possible to connect the DVR in the Bethesda office and use the Sonicwall to somehow connect camera's from the DC office. Both offices currently have static IP's from the ISP as well as Virtual Trunk Line and VPN between both offices. I assume it is possible but am not 100% on how to get it done and whether it is viable or I should just get 2 separate systems. Any help would be awesome.

Hello all,

I am looking for an all-in-one home security system that combines the following features:
- WiFi (I'm tired of the limitations with wired cameras)
- Cameras (minimum 720p) - minimum 4 channel
- Sensors (door/windows)
- App controllable from anywhere
- Compatible with Google Home and/or Apple Home App

So far, this is all that I've found. It's probably not a perfect fit but I am going to contact the manufacturer.

- Fuers FW1 Wireless WIFI + Telephone Line Home/House Burglar Alarm System

Acceptable compromise
- Two separate systems that work with Google Home / Apple Home App

Thank you :)
