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.

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.

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)

Hello -
Sadly to say my house got broken into yesterday :(  Video footage has a lot of evidence.

Thanks in advance!

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 …

Hi, I have 8 Hikvision 3mp dome cameras that go foggy at night. I have installed silica bags on the inside because I thought that was where the problem was originating. To my surprise, when I wipe the OUTSIDE of the dome with a cloth, the vision goes clear. The vision is perfect during day time operation and it is at night that I have issues. The day time temperature in Newcastle, Australia, is 35 degrees and the night time temp is 20 degrees celsius. Humidity is 80%. All 8 cameras are affected the same way.

Is there a spray that I can use, to stop the fogging on the outside of the dome? And if so, is it long lasting, as I have 3 cameras that need a long extension ladder to reach the domes.
Thank You

I'm looking to install a security camera system in my SOHO, and want to have one with very good video quality, at about 100 feet, day or night. I understand I'd have to go to HD-SDI and/or EX-SDI cameras to get a full 1080p resolution, and also have the IR illuminators and such.

I don't mind spending up to 1000 on this (or slightly more), but I'd like to keep costs down as much as possible. I'd also need a DVR, or some sort of PC interface. I've got several PC machines I could devote to the system if there are PCI or USB interfaces. I certainly don't mind a DIY sort of setup.

Any recommendations for cameras or systems? Please don't point me to links unless you have personal knowledge of the systems or cameras. I can read reviews like everyone else, and I'm looking for someone with hands-on experience with their recommendation.

Windows 10 64 bit. Nvr connected to router. How do determine the IP address of the NVR? The reason I am posing this question is because my NVR is showing two active cameras during tests I am conducting. It is showing this even though threre are no cameras hooked to the NVR. In order for me to begin fixing problems with this surveillance system I must first determine what is causing this indication.

I am using an Eyesurv NVR and a Hikvision IP camera. When I use the program named CONFIG and scan for cameras it will show the same  IP address twice in the found column for only one camera connected.  I disconnect all other cameras and ran the test with only the problematic one. Same results. Does anyone have any ideas on what to check? I can provide more information if needed.

I have seen lots of people use a small LED strip plugged in the USB and controlled by a script, and I have seen a lot of people have a big LED Strip plugged into the wall and controlled via a Remoted provided by the manufacture.

I am looking for a way to have the long/big LED strip plugged into the wall and controlled via script, either via USB/PowerShell etc. or Raspberry Pie. I need to know what kind of stuff I need to pull this off and if possible what kind of LEDs to buy. I presume I will need a bread board and some solder wires etc.… but given that I’m using power from the wall what additional equipment will I need so I can use the power from the wall and the controls from the PI to get what I need?

I have 7 cameras hooked up to a powered switch that in turn is connected to a "EYESURV" brand NVR. Overnight I was hacked into and a few words left on one cameras screen. And the screen was upside down. I was able to correct the screen orientation but unable to remove the hacked working. I changed passwords on my router and on 2 of the cameras. Now those cameras appear offline and I cannot figure out how to get them back. And, for some reason, the NVR is showing that it thinks like an 8th camera is connected. There is no 8th camera.I have rebooted everything several time to no avail. I have all needed programs to solve this problem but am not familiar enough with any of them to solve these problems. I have "Config Tool" and PSS and SMARTPSS and SADP. Is this problem unsolvable without the company that sold it to me assisting? I have only a slight understanding related to how the software controls the NVR and each camera and which items the PC controls. Things have been working relatively fine  for the past year.

Is there a simple device that can send an alert when there is no power in a room?
Something that could be connected to an outlet?  If necessary, the user could get a UPS for their WiFi-enabled cable modem.


thanks

I have 8 IP cameras in a local system that records all cameras 100% of the time. What is a good software program that is versatile and can accommodate viewing and control from an Android smartphone? Software / Application must be able to control cameras that have PTZ functionality. My phone is an HTC "ONE" M10 smartphone.
