    Dahua NVR, IVS snapshot option

    So glad you took the time to detail what has worked and what hasn't. It's baffling to me that snapshots of filtered activity are not a feature. Most would like to have an 'at a glance' view of the day's events. You're the first person to actually tackle the problem head-on... thank you! I have...

    Dahua NVR, IVS snapshot option

    I have similar questions - have posted several times, but have unfortunately never heard of a solution. It seems like a reasonable expectation of an NVR, and the interface even shows snapshots of events - yet those snapshots are not available on mobile apps, and difficult to set up (impossible...

    DMSS w/Dahua DVR Video Clips - are thumbs an option?

    So, specific to the app view - no thumbnails? It appears the app was designed to include them given the use of a placeholder image. I'd be curious to know is Blue Iris includes this. Thank you.

    DMSS w/Dahua DVR Video Clips - are thumbs an option?

    Dahua DVR has thumbnail images of triggering event, which is useful and exactly what I would expect. However neither DMSS nor iDMSS Plus apps (iPhone) show thumbs, only a default placeholder image. Has anyone found a mobile app that can/does show the thumbnails or even managed to get to them...

    Tutorials For Setup of Dahua cameras?

    I completely agree with your findings (or the lack thereof). PROS Dahua cameras are of good quality in build and images. Feature rich - on par with other brands. Fair pricing through 'grey market' resellers like Andy (he's very good in response / fast shipping as well) CONS Positioned solely...

    Dahau video clip 'placeholder' thumbnails

    NVR5216-16P-4KS2E Using DMSS HD app on iPhone and iPad. The playback interface implies that representative thumbnails can populate the events, vs. default thumbnail. I've never found a way to accomplish this. Anyone found a way to accomplish it or is it even a feature? As I see representative...

    IVS camera settings vs NVR IVS settings

    No sorry accepted, unless you designed the interface(s) - ha!

    IVS camera settings vs NVR IVS settings

    I understand IVS rules are set on the camera. However, the record settings on the camera appear to relate to LOCAL storage (SD Card). Yes? No? It's unfortunate how complicated unclear the various pieces are. I'm usually good with all things low-voltage and web based technologies, but IP camera &...

    IVS camera settings vs NVR IVS settings

    One remaining question I would have is if you put settings on the NVR side how do you undo those safely and cleanly?

    Synology Surveillance Station advanced settings

    I have one of my cameras on an DS920+ and used the settings below. However, I had to choose a different model as it did not recognize my IPC-B5442E-ZE. Overall, the features are very good, but not $50 a camera good. I'll likely move to BlueIris at some point (currently on Dahua DVR).

    Synology FTP + Dahua IVS events

    I’ve found the same issue testing on my DS920+ It appears to be uploading all motion snapshots vs. IVS events. It’s frustrating and confusing. The NVR software is a maze of choices not well documented. Apparently, the only choice is moving to Blue Iris, but I haven’t had the time to go down...

    Are Dahua NVR event 'thumbnail images' visible on any mobile apps?

    Anyone? The lack of images seem to imply snapshots or representative thumbnails can be used

    DMSS mobile app thumbnail images - supported?

    Running Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 with mostly IPC-HDW5442T-ZE cameras. In the DMSS and DMSSHD apps, it seems there are placeholder images where snapshots should be showing up - representing events as viewable on the NVR. Is there a way to get these populated with actual snapshot images?
