Looking for a better security solution for home directory listing buzz in.  
Due to the increase mail package thefts, HOA proposed to completely remove remote buzz in option.  Currently visitors dialing the code downstairs, call comes to resident's cell phone,  and by pushing '9' the door unlocks;  If we remove that option the resident has to go downstairs to open the door to the visitor. Definitely inconvenient option.  But could be safe. Recently we even noticed the food delivery guys stealing packages on the way out.

My idea to improve it is to add a small cam downstairs.  When someone dialing in the call comes to resident's smartphone.  Resident immediately see shows coming in and make a decision to buzz person in or not.   Can this be implemented for a building of 50 units?  

Any ideas appreciated.   Thanks!!

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.

Virus Depot: Cyber Crime Becomes Big Business
Virus Depot: Cyber Crime Becomes Big Business

The rising threat of malware-as-a-service is not one to be overlooked. Malware-as-a-service is growing and easily purchased from a full-service cyber-criminal store in a “Virus Depot” fashion. View our webinar recording to learn how to best defend against these attacks!

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 guys,

Im currently running what i would say is a "normal home set up". I have a router as my main incoming wifi as well as a extender which is a netgear night hawk.

I run all PC traffic though a paid for VPN.

I also have a smart home, thermostat, alexa, wireless sockets etc. I have been told that the smart home is easy to "hack" AKA some sitting outside gaining entry via the smart home device.

Ive been told i need something like this; Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway to secure my home.

Any suggestions.

Please bear in mind my technical knowledge is limited!

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 :)

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

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
