Hybrid NVR Hikvision, recording and managing IP cameras

NVR (network video recorder) is a device management and storage of surveillance recordings from the cameras connected to the network, ie IP cameras; DVR is a kind of network, because DVRs are compatible with analog cameras, the network signal does not come through, but coaxial cable.
IP cameras are smart devices that can be accessed remotely, that are discussed in internal network / internet.
With the increasing number of IP cameras over a network, it is quite difficult to manage each camera in hand, feeling the need for a more efficient management solution.
An NVR makes it easier for us by centralizing records and controls, IP cameras.

  1. Hello .
    Those who have only one Ethernet port as connected? the router and the router still cameras (optional switch?). it feels like to be swept automatically or manually?
    Having made the NVR recording settings have changed in the menu IP cameras to record something?

    • let's ok as I caught hibridu. the first part of the question falls.
      but 2 has. something we set for recording and in-camera?

      • For the record set do not have anything in the rooms. All settings are made from NVR and the rooms will be subject.
        Optional active safety setting, which records will be saved on the SD card or on a NAS in case NVR has a problem. Of course that if the card rooms and card slot, or about a NAS.

    • The switch can connect 8 rooms.
      NVR change room settings, without the necessary settings in the room. Once made NVR settings will be found in the rooms.

  2. Hi, this NVR only works with IP cameras from Hikvision?

    • It also works with other cameras, but with very low reserves. For example, PTZ settings did not worked with Dahua room, where a control NVR. That was the only problem we encountered.
      Now, with other cameras can function perfectly.
      When you add a camera, you have a list of all known brands; That means that the NVR is ready to work with any IP camera.

  3. Hello.
    NVR has PoE LAN?
    what maximum distance can I ask a room without flashes or night because infrared worse to not light at all.
    I heard that they are poe stabilizers: it starts from 24 volts and at the end from the camera it has stabilization and exactly 12v comes out. (or as the case may be 48. 24 -> XNUMX….)
    if you could also submit that way.
    goes well data traffic through the router of hybrid compared to a dedicated router?
    Thank you for the work you are doing.

    • In general residential NVRs have POE LAN. For this you can use a POE injector or PoE switch, if you have more room.
      A quality camera with lens and good construction, has no problem with IR refleziile
      POE standards are doau, 802.3af and 802.3af, the latter going up to a maximum 30w and generally voltage automatically adjusts depending on the customer's request (IP camera).
      NVR router function is one of the entry level, without advanced features; Yet it does the job quite well, up to 150 Mbps.

  7. Hello Cristi,
    Do you have any idea, is this NVR compatible with Edimax cameras? I have about two models (IC - 3116W) and I notice that he doesn't see them. I chose several protocols from “Camera Management, but nothing. He doesn't see them! I also tried with local IP and DNS, the situation remains the same. Maybe you have an answer. Thank you
