Carries a wide range of Hikvision NVRs and cameras.
Jack, Gloria, and Michael are staff listed in the support section. I'm looking at getting security cameras at my place, but am a complete newbie.
Unfortunately both these stores no longer stock Hikvision Products.
You're best bet now is to buy from Ebay/Amazon or source them locally.
It's not actually formatting the drive – just creates a file or folder but doesn't delete anything already there – stupid term to use. Free, easy to set up, light on resources, free mobile client and much faster to connect than Milestone.
But I'd still makes sure I had a backup of anything important. Hi, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this knocking sound with a Hikvision DS-2CD2432F-IW when viewing the camera and playback via i VMS 42?
You can still get them on Aliexpress, it's just that they won't be listed under a hikvision name, you will need to search by model number.
I really have no idea what I should be looking for, so will be trusting your recommendations. There is a wiki linked at the top of each page in this thread that has a lot of info.I ordered a 4 camera (2 indoors, 2 outdoor, all 3 megapixel) plus NVR recording unit last night. A few extras like network cables and a HDD (I will use a spare 2TB) and cosmetic wall plates to hide cable holes adds a few $, 5 to 10%.Installation is not difficult for a basic DIY'er (who can use a screwdriver, drill) and knows some basic home networking (or good at finding / reading online guides).i have 8 cameras, and sometimes (one out of maybe 5-6 times) when i launch i VMS-4500 (android), the 1st camera doesnt play automatically (the other 7 are fine).i have to go into the camera list and add camera 1 again, as it is deselected. (i seem to recall someone mentioning it, but can't remember if it was here or someplace else, nor how long ago it was) So I've got my Hikvision DS 2CD3335-i, and I have installed i VMS-4200 on a server PC.
