    Trying to help my brother-in-law while I'm in town. He had a Hikvision 4 port NVR and needed more cameras so I got him a NVR5216-16P-4KS2E from Andy. I'm having issues moving the Hikvision cameras onto the Dahua NVR. We don't know the username/password for the camera so I held down the reset...

    Is there a Thread, Wiki, Sticky that decodes Dahua's model numbers? I figured out the starting B&T refers to Bullet o Turret; I think ZE at the end is zoom? Would be nice to know what TS, TAS, ASE mean; along the number combinations. Anything to help us beginners. Thanks
