    Yes, I use DMSS. There are a bunch that work. It's not the app that allows remote viewing so pretty much all of them work. You have to set up a home VPN through your router like Open VPN. Read the entire thread or search for "open VPN"...

    Replace failing hard drive

    In order to use macrium you must create a "rescue disk" from within the program to use as a boot disk. I use a cd and make a new one every update. I think you can also use a thumb drive. The computer must use this to boot into. From there it will search for an image to restore. Did you...

    They should work fine just plugging them if the passwords are the same as the NVR. You can use the config tool to find the IP for each camera and enter them manually with their passwords if needed. You will still have to setup the NVR along with the settings you want.

    You may be out of luck. Those are wifi only. All the wifi cameras I've added including q-see had an option to plug into my network and set up the wifi. If you can get the the q-see app or qc view to add them you would then need to use open vpn as stated above.

    Don't use QC view on your PC, switch to smart pss and dahua config tool. Easy to add and better. Smart PSS https://dahuawiki.com/Template:SmartPSS Config Tool https://dahuawiki.com/ConfigTool Assuming your cameras are Dahua OEM. Post the model number.

    Q-See QCA7209B cameras are BNC and will not work with the Dahua NVR. You need to either use a home VPN through your router or start over.
