    Q-See Closing Doors Jan 31st 2021 No More Remote Viewing, Options to fix

    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

    Yes, you can clone one drive to another but cloning is not just using copy command. The assumption I made is he had only one drive installed and need to replace it. If he installed a second hard drive he could clone then unplug/ remove the old one. When it clones it still creates the image...

    Replace failing hard drive

    In order to restore an image/clone to a new drive, it must be created first. When I change/upgrade my C: drive I create an image/clone to a separate hard drive either internal or external. Change out the old hard drive, and point rescue disk to the new drive's location so it can write/restore...

    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...

    Replace failing hard drive

    I swear by macrium. I've been using it weekly for many, many years. Really easy to replace a hard drive. Remember, it's not if a hard drive will fail but when.

    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.

    NVR Starts up then shuts down and beeps

    May be a bad hard drive. Bought two new ones a couple months ago and one was bad out of the box. same thing on the NVR. Try it on a computer.

    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.

    Password managers and duplicate usernames.

    All my cameras are the same but they are not on the internet either. I use 1Passord and have been for years. I have over 1500 unique passwords and have no idea what they are.

    Suggestions for adding a network jack outside.

    Here's the background story, sorry I will try to make it short. I had a woodpecker show up about 4 years ago. A female Northern Flicker. Kept pecking the same spot under the eve, north side. They are federally protected so I can shoot it (yet). I learned they only peck for two reasons...

    Suggestions for adding a network jack outside.

    Right but I need an enclosure for it and the injectors. You can see the switch next to it so I need to find a differed box and/or separate the switch. I could run a new conduit from the breaker behind the bolder and add a 12"x12" metal box there. That may work. Just need to figure cost to...

    Suggestions for adding a network jack outside.

    1" conduit, buried but already has 4x 10 gauge and 2x 12 gauge in it from the main pull box. Not going to try to pull another, just asking for trouble. I ran the 14 gauge from the sub breaker and added the breaker. It's only 4' to the outlet and another 8' to the plug. TP-Link told me if I...

    Suggestions for adding a network jack outside.

    The plug GCFI is new, the 50 amp GCFI is expensive. Maybe I'll just stick to the wifi.

    The line I'm tapping is for my hot tub. 50am GCFI breaker at the main. About 100' to a sub panel near the spa. The sub panel has two breakers for the spa 20 & 30 amp both also GCFI (been like that for 20 years). I added a 15 amp breaker to the spa sub panel and ran it about 10' to an plug...

    Suggestions for adding a network jack outside.

    So I have a couple of wireless cameras and want to change to wired. I have power outside near where I want the jacks. I cannot run a new cat6 wire due to concrete and other restrictions. I tried TP-link Powerline adapters (which power another camera for me) and because there are CGFI outlets...

    ***PSA for those with a New DAHUA NVR with Built-in PoE switch

    Have you changed the IP address of the camera in IP Config? Dahua uses 192.168.1.108 as a default IP for both NVRs and cameras. I kept having a conflict and it acted the same as you until I change my Dahua NVR to a different IP address. Every time I add a camera I will change the IP after...

    Putting Camouflage Tape On My Dahua 5442E-ZE Camera

    Have you had any issues with the cameras temperature with the duct tape? I'm thinking about doing this but worried the duct tape will keep the camera from dissipating the heat.
