  1. Cheers James. So you can see the video? That's great. The DVR shows 1080p, and I recall the cameras also being 1mp 1080p (I'll be able to check this when I return to the customers house). So, lower quality cameras might be the solution? I suppose if I'm going to get asked to look at CCTV regularly, I should attend one of the ADI events and get clued up! Cheers Thanks also SWB. I'll propose that the cameras are moved.
  2. Thanks for this... obviously I'm out of my depth with this. I've not got all the paperwork with me, but I know the DVR is "analogue" and understood the cameras were too. However the question of tvi/cvi is unknown. There IS a picture (it's a shame my small video file was not viewable to you all) but it's showing hazy interference. Would I still get a picture if the tvi/chi was incorrect? Thanks again to you all for your help.
  3. Thanks Nova. The DVR has a built-in monitor and the images are identical when viewed online. It does seem that either the signals to the DVR are suspect, or it's the DVR itself that is processing the signal incorrectly. Thanks for your help
  4. Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. Ok, I'll wire another camera into it, and see how the image is, before getting the ladders out... If I can prove a good image with a replacement cable, then it could be happy days :-) Perhaps I'll be sticking to my 30 years in security systems rather than poking my nose into the magic of CCTV! Thanks again for your help.
  5. Thanks for the reply. Obviously my knowledge is inferior to yours, but a relative has a similar set up, and there's is crystal clear - same cameras and DVR. I presumed there's something interfering with the signal somewhere? I understood HIK vision cameras were ok? Cannot really respond about Sannce. Maybe I should suggest he changes his DVR? May prove if the issue is the cameras/cables or DVR itself... Cheers
  6. I don't often get involved with CCTV, but have been asked fire help with a guys newly installed system. It's a Sannce DVR with two analogue 1080p HIK vision cameras. The cables are pre- made (two different "makes"), and the cameras and DVR have separate power supplies. The cables run through the house wall and then in different directions to the two cameras. There is minimal excess cable coiled up and they don't run next to power supplies. Both images are show interference - the colours are distorted. Is there something obvious? Cheers 20190210125057.mp4

  8. I've been asked to fit a sim dialler to a guys system and what I imagined to be simple hasn't turned out that way (very familiar to us all I suppose...). The guy has bought a sim dialler which apparently needs a positive remove from the trigger terminal to cause the unit to send out it's messages. However as said, he only has a very simple panel (optimal compact), and these are fixed as negative trigger... Is there a solution, or is it a change of dialler or panel? Cheers

    Gardtec 816 engineer code locked

    Hmmm...wish I knew. Do you think this may also work with the 595 panel?

    To charge or not to charge...

    Had a customer haggling over my estimate after their alarm failed after a powercut... I'd mentioned that a fault after a powercut was likely to be backup battery related, and therefore be prepared for a new battery. When I gave him the estimate, he started to ..."but its only a case of removing the cover and fitting a new battery". When I politely suggested he might want to do it himself then, he said "you've got to be joking! It might electrocute me". He agreed to pay me!

    Texecom Recall Veritas Control Panels

    Got to say that I've not been a fan of the Veritas range. Had a number of problems with keypads over the years... ...but, the Premier range is another matter! The flush keypads with prox fobs have been ever so popular, and look fantastic!

    Arfur Mo

    Hmmm... I've not been around much recently, but have to say I enjoyed reading Arf's posts. He has been helpful to me...and on one occasion quickly and accurately pointed out a potential consequence of one solution to a problem which I had proposed. He also was quite blunt with me on another topic, which I don't deny took me back a little, but perhaps my question was a little naive. I agree that there has certainly been a fair bit of baiting, debating and some fairly intense points of view, but where personal slights were omitted, they've kept the forum very lively. It's sad when any long-standing member of a forum leaves. I hope this forum can soon return to become a lively and informative place.

    Easy Sets.

    I use it often. Customers love it - I tell 'em it saves wear and tear on the end of their finger!! BUT I also warn them about the disadvantages of unintended setting and the subsequent risk of false alarms, especially if there are any young kids around.

    One Panel To Rule Them All

    Tell me about it!!! I cart around a huge file which I've built up over 20+ years. Most of the systems I work on are domestic and smaller commercial, and TBH I enjoy the challenge of a call to a system I'm not familiar with! There are some (and I won't name them here as others have already said they like 'em!!) which I dislike, BUT if they work and have been set up correctly, then won't replace them. Regarding favourites...well, I do like the Gardtec/Eurosec stuff.
