Hi fellas. I have a Swann DVR8-4000 which has two Swann cams and one Sunkwang PTZ (which has just died) installed. I'm having some alterations on the house and I am going to take this opportunity and move the DVR/cabling to a different room. While I am on I may as well swap out the dead camera and add a few more. But my question is this. Which Hikvision cameras are compatible with my DVR? Would I be better to replace the DVR and the cameras? Thanks for any help fellas.
Hi All, We've been using Hikvision cameras for our installation and always found them to be very good value for money. Recently though, they discontinued several of the key models we used and created new ones with higher prices. Also, we find that they are difficult to reach in case of questions, etc. So we're looking to switch manufacturers. Thinking of Dahua, but quality is not as good as Hikvision from experience. Does any one have alternative brands to recommend?? Value for money is key criteria. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know how many models are affected and do re-badged dvr`s/nvr`s share the same firmware?
