Analog to IP CCTV

Hi all,

First post on this forum, just came across it whilst doing a google search trying to get some answers to a problem.

We have a MaxxOne CCTV system with 6 cameras.

The system is working fine, and it's nice that we are able to view the cameras on our TV's by switching to Channel 800, or via the MaxxOne app, however, I was wondering if there was a solution available where we could convert the signal to IP?

I would not want to lose the ability to view the cameras on our TV's at home if possible, so maybe the signal needs to be kept as analogue, but duplicated on IP?

I am by no means an expert in CCTV or AV, just wondered if it could be done.

Current Equipment:
HAWK D8800 SERIES DVR : https://www.grax.co.uk/upload/62f72-SE9065.pdf
TM-RF HD IR

Thanks in advance,

C

Hi @cjwalkeruk

The specs you have shared say that the DVR does have a LAN port to connect the DVR to your local network, are you using this?

Once the DVR is connected to your local network you should be able to access it with a browser using the recorder's dedicated IP address.

(usually, professional brands have an IP utility to identify the IP addresses of their devices, but I could not find this software for MaxxOne so I would assume there is a default IP address that may be on the DVR label. If there is no IP address you will need to contact the seller you bought from or MaxxOne directly to get their help identifying the DVRs IP address.)

Hi Dan,

Thank you for your reply.

I have my DVR connected to my modem, and I am able to view the cameras through the MaxxOne iPhone app.

I would, however, like to get the details so I can use other 3rd party apps to view the cameras through.

I would also like to try and upgrade the firmware of the DVR, which has not been done since the system was installed, however, I can not seem to find any information or upgrade files online in order to do this.

Device Name: MIA-D8808
Hardware Version: DM-374
Software Version: V8.1.0-20180808

Finally, I just wanted to mention... when I type in the IP address of the DVR into a web browser (Safari), I receive the below message. Chrome and Firefox do not work either:

"You haven't installed the plugin or it is not the latest version.
Please click download to download the latest plugin.
Please close browser before plugin installation!!!"


I did download the plugin as requested, but it still does not work.

Hi @cjwalkeruk

If all browsers on the Mac are not working and the plugin is not working it may be the case that the plugin is only Windows compatible and thus the system can only be accessed with browsers on a Windows device. (most likely Internet Explorer)
