    Can you use an RJ45 Coupler with POE?

    No, it is fine to use a coupler. If it is outdoors, please make sure that you fully weatherproof the connection. Water ingress to the RJ45 connectors and corrosion of the sprung copper fingers within is still a big cause of camera failures.

    Motion detection can be problematic - as any change in pixels in the scene/detection area may trigger it. It is therefore very hard to optimise it for all conditions. Many people switch to line crossing detection; simpler and more reliable. Enabling h.265+ does use up some of the camera's...

    iVMS4500 for Android

    The Apps on your phone/tablet will have been set up to access the cameras at an IP address, rather than via Hik-Connect (is my guess).

    Hikvision Fisheye 12 MP individual stream/ channel setup?

    Hi, What firmware version are you running on the camera and the NVR please?
  11. Phil

    New here, I have a few general questions about bigger systems

    My preferred route would be to use a software on a server solution such as Luxriot. And use capture cards to connect your existing analogue cameras.

    Hikvision NVR and PoE switch

    That NVR model provides POE to your cameras. You can connect its LAN port to your router and then configure remote access; most people would use Hikvision's Hik-connect portal and App.

    Update Firmware - IP Camera - DS-2CD2142FWD-I

    Try jumping to the very latest. If you encounter problems - try with the previous major version. i.e. if 5.5.5 does not work, try 5.4.5, etc.
