    Hive and ring

    It does have its uses. I always use mine to see when my takeaway driver is pulling up so I can be ready and waiting at the door for him ( or her)

    I agree. That's why I don't do private work and pass it all over to someone else. Everyone wants Yale alarms and Swann cctv systems that they have seen in aldi or screwfix. When you tell them how much the kit alone will cost they always refer to these diy kits they have seen.

    I'm seeing a lot of people fitting these diy systems. Nest do cctv cameras now that iv seen popping up in a few places. They are not cheap either.

    So what’s everyone’s opinions on all of these diy systems popping up like hive and ring. And would any professional installers fit these on a domestic job.

    Hikvision external DVD writer

    It does help. Sometimes struggle to tell the difference between staff and service users

    Hikvision external DVD writer

    We deal a lot with mental health so they have a lot of incidents (a few a day)that need to be backed up onto DVD for tribunals police etc. It's not the occasional one or I wouldn't bother.
  8. Hi guys. Does anyone know of an external DVD writer that can be used with hikvision nvrs/dvrs preferably a slimline model. Most of the units We fit tend to not have built in writers so a backup has become a two step process. We are now having to burn to USB stick then use a laptop to burn to disc. 'I have contacted hikvision and they sent me a list of compatible writers but I think the list is old as iv searched for them online and most of them are no longer available to buy. We are not able to even buy loads of cheap USB sticks as the NHS trusts and local councils we work for block these on their staffs pcs Cheers

    Can you spot the obvious problem in this photo

    Yeah I fully understand not airing dirty laundry but iv not mentioned the company or the site where the work was. And the cable was in a public area so plenty of people have probably seen it. And if someone from my company stumbles across this hopefully they will be more outraged at the fact that this standard of work could be carried out on a site which is part of our biggest contract by a senior employee. Reputations take years to build and when people see shoddy work they don't think that was Dave and Bob who fitted that, they think that was X COMPANY who fitted that.

    Hahaha I'll be sure to post. And I'll definitely be prepared for some criticisms. I will at least secure the cable in place with some industrial blue tac. You won't even see it on those walls.

    Peter I haven't knocked approved companies. I have merely stated that the work was carried out by a approved company. Which is a fact. Regardless of what you say about one side to the story i know factually that the cable was run In a few months ago and that was the finished article. No return visit planned. The customer was told that there was no other route which isn't the case. There are not lots of problems within the company like you assume just the odd few which I'm sure every company experiences. I'm not biased. If I would come on and report poor workmanship from another company then I do not feel my company should be exempt.

    Didn't want to admit this as it's embarrassing and I don't want to be tarred with the same brush , but this was fitted by 2 service engineers from the company I work for. One is a manager and second only to the director . :-( Iv reported it to my manager who's reported it to the big boss and now it's me and my colleague who have to go back and rectify it. I I think I'll just need to put a cable tie around them and a label saying please do not cut.

    I wish the excuses people made on their behalf were true but sadly this was how it was left. It wasn't even a rush job. They are a embarrassment.

    Im going to put my neck on the line here and say that I feel their workmanship improved on the inside.

    This was "installed " by service engineers. There was a Cctv fault and they couldn't find the psu so recabled it. If I showed you what they done inside you would think it was a practical joke. Whats worse is the Dvr is in the room the camera backs on to. They didn't even need to run the cable the way they did.
