    Do onvif cameras on aliexpress work with Hikvision NVR?

    I found a vendor Anpviz, and seems like they are selling Hikvision cameras branded as their own. They specifically mention in description "Hikvision compatible". Is that a good camera? I guess I could live with Smart events, since cats and about everything trips it a lot anyways.

    Do onvif cameras on aliexpress work with Hikvision NVR?

    I'm interested in adding a 3 cameras to my house, 1 bullet and 2 ptz. Hikvision cameras are quite expensive (especially PTZ) so thinking of going the aliexpress route. There are a couple of PTZ onvif cameras with quite a lot of sales/reviews on aliexpress and seem like a good buy. Curious which...

    Ideas for Hikvision mini-bullet camera extension/mount

    I installed a mini bullet camera on the sidewall of the house and tried adjusting it but can't seem to get a clear shot of the alley because camera base is too small and camera sits close to the wall. Any ideas/products on how to move the camera away from the wall a bit? It'll be nice if the...

    Mic options for Turrent and Bullet cameras?

    I was planning on installing Bullet/Turret cameras outside - since these are the recommended ones for exterior walls, however, no hikvision Easy IP 3.0 bullet/turret camera has audio interface to connect a mic. I find it really odd that only Domes have the audio/alarm interface. Is there a...

    On NVR Reboot (or power failure) Cameras lose their Arming Schedule!

    If you're using HIkvision Cameras and NVR and they are communicating via Hikvision Protocol (not sure about others) then NVR will copy its settings to camera on reboot. I was experiencing same issue, and then decided to set camera schedule etc in NVR. Its been working fine since then.

    Easy IP 3.0 Dome vs Mini-Dome performance?

    Are turrets as good as bullets for mounting on walls? I checked with local shops but no one has turret - because there is no demand for those locally, most people just go with bullet. I do see some on aliexpress though, any reliable sellers there?

    Easy IP 3.0 Dome vs Mini-Dome performance?

    Actually, I'm only using two domes. One next to the entrance door and other outside the garage (under the eave). The main reason for wanting domes is aesthetics, since I hate the look of bullet cameras. In other conspicuous areas, I'm using bullet cameras. Also, the areas where I'm planning on...

    Easy IP 3.0 Dome vs Mini-Dome performance?

    Was planning on getting regular 4MP domes but found out that Mini-Domes have built-in microphones - which is something I want. So wondering if there are performance differences between Dome and Mini-Dome? or any quirks specific to mini-domes?

    Hikvision 7608NI-K2 Mouse stops working

    Yes, tried on all ports. unplugging means removing power plug, wait a few seconds and then plug it back in. I have to do this because when the mouse isn't working there is no way to properly shutdown the NVR.

    Hikvision 7608NI-K2 Mouse stops working

    I got the nvr brand new from Hikvision official store couple of weeks ago. Since day 2, I've noticed the mouse stops working (cursor disappears). It usually happens after I haven't interacted with the NVR for few hours (e.g. overnight). When it happens, the mouse laser light is on (indicating...
