Hey guys new to the forum.

 

I have recently took on quiet a big contract they have a existing setup of over 30 cameras with 3 DVRs. So basically I’ve installed a extra 4 cameras on top of there existing setup from one of the DVRs onsite. They have a office where they can view all of the cameras from one DVR. So I thought that installing the cameras on the existing setup would automatically populate in the office but that’s not the case. Any ideas? They have Hikvision DVRs and have never dealt with a setup with multiple DVRs I know it’s probably going to be something silly I am missing here any help would be great.

Did you not check before taking on the contract that you were suitably qualified and experienced to maintain the equipment?

Nah just wondering as thats the kind of thing a first year apprentice knows, seems a bit blaggerish to take on sites when you don't know how to work on the kit, that contract could have went to someone who actually knows what they are doing but hey thats just me.

Its likely either a pc running ivms or they have fitted a 32ch nvr or decoder and added are using it as a matrix.

Told you your hardcore 

 

Apprentice if your working with someone who knows how 

 

As an expert blagger I don't take on sites which I don't know about , and don't really know what he's on about 

 

Just assuming what I have learnt from the men here , it's an IP system and there using rtsp or something to view all the cams in one room or onvif or another NVR to register the cams over a link 

 

Or as you say ivms on pc?

 

Typical I didn't read your thread properly you already said all that, who needs manuals lol

It'll most likely be analogue/tvi dvrs, feeding into a central ivms or hardware decoder. The cameras will need to be added manually for each camera.

Its quite straightforward and hik offer free training courses.

Thanks for the reply’s guys figured it out in the end was quiet straight forward really. Was no need to come across like that petrol head I’m no apprentice just been mainly doing domestic over the last few years. Like I said in my post I haven’t touched anything with multiple DVRs before. I like to take on challenges and learn onsite where I can.

Was the client aware that "you havent touched anything with multiple DVRs before and that you like to take on challenges and learn onsite where you can" before awarding a big contract or did they think they were getting someone suitably qualified and experienced?

I'm not looking for a petty argument. I told you exactly what your solution was. I'm not going to hide my distaste for chancers that bid for work they haven't bothered to train for though, it makes a mockery of the industry.

And I'll shut up when I'm ready to.
