    Ubiquity EdgeRouter X - Configuring to Isolate Surveillance Networks

    There are advantages by having your NVR in the garage: noise (especially the POE ones make buzzzz) all camera bandwidth remains on the Switch1 and won't overload your ER-X. Do note that an ER-X is bad in switching, good in routing. Hey, it is a router after all. vlanning may become easier...

    Dahua DMSS App.

    Indeed, "Parental" controls on Asus do block VPN access too (because you're coming from outside). I personally never messed with these LAN/WAN filters, but worked hardcore in iptables on my asus. The only drawback is (was?) that changing iptables was not persistent - after every reboot, you...

    Indeed, good suggestions above : "bad" cables do suffer from corrosion and/or interference. Are these "artefacts" happening all the time or only when you use your microwave oven (as an example). To debug yourself: exchange 2 camera's, and see if the results "stick" to the camera or do they...

    Hi @HeresMathew: Is it that black "line" running across the mid-below camera? Is it the sound on the background? Is this only in Live View or is this also in Playback mode? As a first resort I'm tempted to say: do a factory reset of that specific camera and configure it like it was earlier (eg...

    DaHua NVR5216-16P-4KS2 firmware upgrade questions.
