Re: Audio on ANPVIZ 3MP Dome Cam

Hi stuntflyer, You are probably correct about the microphone. My Ertech camera has "audio", but there is no microphone, just a 3.5mm connector to plug one in. I tried a few external microphones but it didn't work well. The Dahua camera has one built in, and it does work well. For anybody that doesn'...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

OK, so I plug Switch into the router and then the BI PC into the switch along with the cameras. Where do I plug the power adaptors into, the Router (as they currently are) or the switch? When you say "Where do I plug the power adaptors into", do you mean the powerline ethernet sockets ? If so, they...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Just to be clear, I would plug an ethernet cable in from the router to the ethernet switch. Plug the BI5 pc into the switch. Plug all of the cameras into the switch. That stops the cameras being fed through the router to BI5. It may not be the issue, but do let us know. Any other (non cctv) internet...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Where is the other end of this long ethernet cable plugged in ? the router, or are you now using the ethernet switch. I would guess it is a network issue, but that can be anything from: A damaged ethernet cable, Plugging it directly into the router instead of an ethernet switch, An ethernet cable th...

Re: Alerts Not Showing

That doesn't sound right. Is it possible you changed something else at the same time ? I have Alerts with d2d.

Re: CPU overload

With the cpu % reductions that you now have, I think you should leave it as it is and back up all of the settings immediately :o My D1 sub stream is set at 512 Kb/S, but it is VBR rather than CBR. In my previous post, you can see that it was actually running at 64.4 Kb/S. Can anybody tell us the tec...

Re: Help - poor Wifi camera performance

Your other option may be to add more powerline ethernet devices :!:

You can add more slave devices to your existing set up.

Re: The solution to many of life's little problems

To make that point clear, I have some TPLink sockets, and some Devolo sockets. I believe the trick is to use sockets of a similar speed, so they speak the same language = HomePlug AV. You can then manually add the sockets to the other network using the GUI and by adding the 16 digit code. I thought ...
