  • How to add AXIS Cameras as ONVIF

    Our NVR and Tribrid or Pentabrid DVR recorders allow use of 3rd party IP cameras not purchased from CCTV Camera World. 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.

  • Connecting a Hikvision or Onvif IP Camera to a Dahua NVR

    Dahua has built a pretty strong reputation for manufacturing standalone Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and Network Video Recorders (NVR) that live up to peoples expectations. Not only do they possess all of the features people have come to expect, but they also stand the test of time where others fail. With Hikvision arguably not having options that are as highly sought after, but with their IP cameras still being as popular as they are, it makes sense to look at Dahua to fill the gap.
