    Hikvision doorbell / Intercom. What one? :(

    Hi Rob, sorry for resurrecting this old post, but I'm looking for a Hikvision doorbell I can add to my existing Hikvision setup, but like you , I don't want the intercom station as I'll be using the Hik connect app on my Android mobile to monitor alerts etc, although I still want it to operate...

    Dome camera for property entrance?

    I did originally look at the Hikvision door bells, but I don't need a screen, so felt their door stations were overkill. Also, while I can easily get a cable into the void above my porch ceiling, it would be very difficult to run one down to a door bell without it being visible, so that also...

    Dome camera for property entrance?

    Thanks daveb, I hadn't picked up on the fact that this dome camera only had a microphone and not a speaker. That's a real shame as I thought it had everything I needed! This morning I was planning to order a 2.8mm version of it and it would have been very frustrating to have received the...

    Dome camera for property entrance?

    So, now I've completed testing the setup of my existing cameras and got email, events and the microphones working, I'm ready to purchase and install my final camera, which will be fitted in the porch as shown in my opening post. I think I'm going to stick with ColorVu and go for the...

    Emails not working on events

    I'm pleased to say that despite the vagaries of the Hikvision software, I have now managed to get all 5 cameras to record events by email and through Hik connect, and only for the area I have defined against each camera. It would appear that the event areas defined using iVMS-4200 are the ones...

    Emails not working on events

    I've now managed to get the event emails working, but there are lots of strange things happening that I don't really understand. I have 5 cameras, all DS-2CD2347G2-LSU/SL's and all on the same firmware version. Nothing I did would get event emails sent for my "test" camera, so, to test event...

    Emails not working on events

    Hi Kyle, unfortunately setting SMTP port to 587 and rebooting the NVR hasn't made any difference. The email test still works, but I'm not getting emails for events. It makes me wonder if my event capture settings (shown above) are correct, or if I have missed some config somewhere. Is there...

    Emails not working on events

    Hi Kyle, I can confirm the sender's address is a Gmail address. I have my own domain name, which is configured to be used by Google, so it doesn't actually matter what appears before the domain identifier part of the email address, it will always get to me. I have allowed for the Google...

    Emails not working on events

    I have the following setup: 5 x 4MP DS-2CD2347G2-LSU/SL cameras connected to a DS-7609NI-I2/8P NVR. I have configured email on the NVR as follows: Instead of "mydomain" I used my own domain name. Clicking the Test button works and an email is successfully sent and received. I've done this...

    Noisy fan hikvision NVR solved with silent power bricks

    Thanks for posting your solution. It's certainly different! In the end I placed my NVR in a loft storage cupboard, which also houses my switch, network storage device and a few other bits and pieces. I had to fit a wider shelf and some additional cable trunking but it wasn't too difficult...

    Dome camera for property entrance?

    I've already installed 3 x DS-2CD2347G2-LSU/SL turret cameras around the outside of my home, connected to a DS-7609NI-I2/8P NVR. I'm now looking for a camera to use in a front door porch as a method of monitoring visitors and communicating with them when I'm away from home. Here's the porch...

    Which inclined mount for colorvu?

    As I asked a similar question on another thread, I thought I would update this with my findings, although maybe the cable reducing inserts mentioned above might be a better solution. Mounting a DS-2CD2347G1-LU turret camera to a DS-1280ZJ-DM21 Junction box?

    Mounting a DS-2CD2347G1-LU turret camera to a DS-1280ZJ-DM21 Junction box?

    Just thought I'd give an update on the solution I came up with to ensure the cable entry point on the DS-1280ZJ-DM21 junction box was water tight. Some figures first: 1. The cat6 unshielded cable I was using was a slim 6.2mm in diameter. I purposely chose a "thin" cat6 cable to make it easier...

    White Light Linkage Method not showing on G2 camera

    Hi @JB1970 , I'm looking for a camera to use in my front door porch, specifically to capture video of anyone who enters the porch and to enable 2-way communication should I be away from home (but obviously without them knowing this!!!), so it would need to be able to alert me. Essentially, I...

    Mounting a DS-2CD2347G1-LU turret camera to a DS-1280ZJ-DM21 Junction box?

    I'm having exactly the same problem getting the gland to tighten on the DS-1280ZJ-DM21 junction box. My cat6 cable is "only" 6.3mm, but I can't tighten the junction box nut up enough to get a tight seal on the cable. I can't believe Hikvision design and sell something like a junction box...
