All of our security camera recorders come with a built-in web server that is always functional when the recorder is powered up, and allows viewing over the local area network (LAN) or over the internet. This security camera remote viewing guide will show you how to connect to your surveillance system using an iOS or Android device.

This allows a user to connect an IP camera to a NVR using only a single network cable.

Some of our NVR models, however, are designed without built-in PoE ports, or have a lesser number of PoE ports than total channels supported. For example, we have 16 Camera NVRs that offer eight built-in PoE ports. To utilize the remaining eight channels, you need to fetch the eight video streams over the network. This is also the case for Tribrid DVRs and XVRs that don't have any built-in PoE ports but still have the ability to stream and record IP cameras. This guide provides the steps necessary to change the IP address of IP cameras that are deployed on a network using a PoE switch external to the NVR.

Security cameras can use coax RG59 siamese wire or CAT5e networking cable to transmit video. The latter is more common these days for IP network cameras. If you are installing a low voltage power box for either a new or existing camera system using coax wiring, it is important to understand how the red and black leads from your coax siamese cable connect to a 12VDC Power Box. DC current is polarized, meaning it has a red wire which is positive, and black wire for negative. We recommend using a power box in a camera system as it allows stable power distribution to many cameras in a system without the need for individual power adapters.  Continue reading ]]> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 22:03:31 +0000 https://www.cctvcameraworld.com/connecting-security-cameras-to-power-box/ https://www.cctvcameraworld.com/connecting-security-cameras-to-power-box/ matt.cctvcw@gmail.com (Matthew Rossi) Matthew Rossi Best Practices For Using A Two-Way Audio Security Camera Whether you have a security camera system for a home or business, the need for two-way audio interaction with talk-back capability may arise. CCTV Camera World offers solutions for both one-way and two-way audio. One-way audio is great for listening to sound originating from the location of a camera, but it will not allow interaction with a person at that location. To be able to interact with a person at the camera, the camera would have to have two-way talk capabilities, i.e. a speaker and microphone built-in similar to an intercom. Our Security Camera Systems allow the end user to see and listen from their camera feeds, and grant the ability to speak into a microphone to talk through one of our two-way audio security camera's speaker. There are a few different ways to conduct two-way talk with our security camera systems. Setup of our two-way audio security cameras is simple, and we explain how to do so in this guide.

This feature is meant for users looking to setup two-way audio or bidirectional talk in their security camera system. By using add-on security camera mics or security cameras with built-in microphone, you can hear audio from the person in front of the camera. To talk back to the person you would connect your own speaker to the RCA audio output on the back of the DVR. By using an audio amplifier, it is possible to use a PA speaker and connect it to the RCA audio output of one of our DVRs.

CCTV Camera World's wired camera systems incorporate plug and play technology, making connection a breeze. However, for applications where running cable isn't possible, we have secure wireless systems that will save you the hassle of running cable.

In order to record audio along with your security video, you have to use an add-on security camera mic of some sort. CCTV Camera World has microphones for both indoor and outdoor applications. Having an external microphone provides more flexibility when recording audio as you can run the microphone to a different spot from where the camera is installed. Setting up the wired connections between an external microphone and one of our IP Pan Tilt Zoom cameras is simple and explained in this article.

IP cameras and the recorder talk to each other over the network and have to sync URL for video, audio, PTZ controls, and motion events for each of these data types to pass from the camera to the recorder. If the URL for each of these data types does not sync, then that function will not work. The ONVIF standard tried to standardize this but its implementation is manufacturer dependent. It is not necessary an ONVIF camera you purchased elsewhere will work with an ONVIF NVR from us or a different vendor. Among manufacturers that are compatible with our recorders, we find AXIS cameras to have the best implementation of ONVIF and are the easiest to set up as an ONVIF camera with our DVR.

How to Connect a Network PTZ Controller to a DVR or NVR CCTV Camera World has simplified the configuration and setup for controlling HDCVI and IP PTZ cameras. Using a network PTZ joystick controller, you can control PTZ cameras by simply connecting the controller to a security video recorder with a single network cable. This provides hands-on control over your PTZ camera with a setup that takes only minutes to complete.

How to Connect an IP Camera to a Computer Many consumers find the need for a professional IP based security camera system for their home, business, or property, but are under the assumption that IP systems are complicated and too tech-heavy.  This discourages them from purchasing one, preventing them the security they require. The truth is, though, that setting up an IP camera is easier than you think. It involves a basic understanding of networking, and by following some simple steps, you’ll have your IP cameras functioning in no time.
