Customer service is great...follow up is fast.

And if I can set up anyone can.
The only caveat is that all the cable ran through conduit.


Thanks for taking the time to reply. Where can I get this brand locally? Or did you bring it in?


I bought it on Amazon.
Before you buy make sure the system comes with enough cable...you can buy additional cables as 88 posted.

What causes this pink colour? Night mode works well. I suspect its the ir LEDs. Settings not helping. I scrap down the camera and aint find anything of note.

All those wires in the back of the dvr looked untidy. Probability of a loose screwed connection is less. Rj45 looks neater and it has a power LED built into it.

Any recommendations on the placement of PTZ cameras with tracking versus fixed cameras ? Do they still go on a corner of the house ?

Anyone knows how to do a password reset on a HIK VISION-DS-7208HQHI-K1 ?

Tried all the online applications to no avail. Purchased the house with the system and the previous owner does not remember the password.

Contacted HIK VISION and they said my product was not purchased in the USA so they can't help.

Have a newish Samsung Smart TV. Every other screen at home with internet connection and phones can connect to the Amcrest View Pro App , with the exception of this TV.

TCL Roku TV was connected for a few minutes and it can show the camera system with no hard wiring.

Any assistance would be helpful .

Hello,

Send a message to tech.support in india with the serial of the dvr. You have to import a key to save to desktop, and send key with serial of DVR.
In 3 or so hrs, they will email you with an encryption key to export on SADPTOOLS. Export file and create new password
