Enable dchp, enable it and add verificationI got my hilook NVR and cameras setup, but i can't get the Hikconnect phone app to work. I've got the NVR connected to my router via the LAN port and the IP is configured in the same IP range as the router with default gateway etc.
When i goto platform access the status is showing as offline. Any advice?
So it works on data, bit not WiFi? Portforwarding isn't necessary with shitconnect, but is recommendedYeah got it working . The only thing not working is viewing when I’m. It at home . Think it needs port forwarding setting up on the router
Never heard of them Andy. We always use HikVision at work. It's very good.
Looks like you've got older cable with BNC so maybe an older style recorder might suit you better. Quality isnt as good obviously but you can get them with all the modern apps.
As above if you have existing BNC cable Hik turbo or dahua cvi ?
Apologies gents, I forgot to thank you for the suggestions. Having had a re-think I have decided to rip the old stuff out (cables and everything) and replace it with a modern setup and a couple more cameras. Cheers.....or search for hiwatch, basically a cheaper (if that's such a thing) hik. Basically last generation more cost effective solution
I installed the following a couple of weeks agoTotal newbie and trying to get my head around this all.
I want 4 camera system. 2 covering the front of my house. 1 the drive in general and 2nd the front door.
Then a further 2 camera s covering the garage which is at the end of my garden.
Looking reasonable set up with link to my phone etc...
Thanks any links to the bits you bought?
Depends. I went for the 8 megapixel camera because I need to identify who walks around my work out of hours. The quality is really good.What rough price fitted for a three/ camera setup fitted?
Seen hikvision cameras with two lenses are these worth the extra investment?
Does the NVR allow PC connection for playback? And I guess it networks up for remote viewing?

You'll need to be able to make ethernet cables for the POE or get someone to do it
Has anyone tried these? They seem worth a go for £20
