    Hikvision camera advice

    Be careful with the LED lighting as this could cause big white out areas appearing on your cameras feed. Best bet would be to install the cameras first and see how they perform (as they will have built in Night LEDS anyway) and then change things as necessary.

    Is a PoE injector useless for my setup?

    Can you not just have a cable from the NVR to the camera? The NVR will be providing POE so just one cable to the camera. As long as under 100 metres length from NVR to camera.

    How important is CCTV security and hacking to you?

    I’ve found by using an Ubiquiti Edge Router I can use that to create seperate networks on different ports and setup rules so they can’t see each other. There is a good guide I followed which helps configure it. It’s not straight forward and requires time but is quite effective for distancing...

    What App(s) are people using?

    Hik-Connect Really easy to use. Only issue I have found with it on the iPhone is that the badge notificiations dont seem to clear. The notifications number just keep mounting up.

    Can distributors see through customers cctv?

    Surely they would need to know the cameras activation codes and also verification codes and you'd hope the customer has changed these?

    Is this a camera?

    This is a solar powered animal deterant. To get rid of vermine and squirrels, etc. It has a built in PIR to go off when a cat walks by for example. It emits a high pitched frequency only the animals can hear. See a similar one here:

    Can someone identify this CCTV camera?

Unless you were within about a metre of the camera I cant imagine it being able to pick up sound in another garden. With a...
