Open up the power supply to see if there is a lil knob to turn to adjust the voltage

My nippon america 5A has one, just assuming this one would have one as well. (Im not sure)
Mine can go as low as ~11V

13.8V is really high for something digital requiring 12V (thats almost 2 volts extra). A regular car lamp or fan will take it but digital electronics are really particular about voltages.

My cams came with a set of adapters to supply power to them. Seems every time electricity went and come back an adapter stop working. All 3 are dead. I know they said 12V DC out so i bought one of these 12V power supply for it. The power supply does 13.8V DC out though.
Will 13.8V hurt the cams or does it need to be 12V flat? I don't have any working adapter to even measure the voktage self.




Depends on the type of camera, distance of wire run, amount or IR's on the cameras. Short distances it will work fine. At night time you'll know better when all the IR's are on. Invest in one of these. It's a power panel that distributes an even 12volts to all cameras. There are 9 output and 18 output versions. IMG_6455.JPG



X2 on the power panel boi nerve.
if you want one check I man to install it for u. ( cause is u)

RHD here on tuner should have...

buy the model with the fuses (shown)
each camera supply has its own in line fuse.

I'd recommend the 18 channel version for the future when you upgrade to a 16 channel DVR.

Epcom isn't a knockoff. It's made by HikVision. The knockoff is a brand called Annke. It uses the same platform as HikVision. Just cheaply made equipment with no fans, plastic cameras. This is from what I've seen thus far and installed for clients.

when your systems not showing properly at night use external led illuminators.(good brand)
when your phone view not streaming properly change your sub-stream settings for higher frame rate and resolution.
IP systems are the way to go. some 2mp are better than 4mp at night. I have seen it. review systems before buying.most cameras are interchangeable on different systems. forget 720p or 720 lite. Go for at least 1080p hd. Just my view.

Sounds like you either used the wrong IP address or need to port forward.

I didn't enter an IP address. What I did was called flow to drop the firewall. Then scanned qr code, added the dvr and all cameras came up on my phone. However, no luck when data or outside wifi is used. Will look into the port forward.

yeah that's why; unless the dvr is the only thing connected to your router, then you need the firewall enabled AND port forwarding set up.

you can also try calling flow and tell them to help you put the dvr on the DMZ; might be easier for you but opens up the dvr to everything on the internet.

Calling flow was a headache. One tech said the firewall was dropped when it wasn't. Another told me I had to upgrade my package! Got that one to at least drop the firewall.

Yes, Dvr is the only thing connected to flow wifi modem. Will YouTube some videos on port fwd and see what I can do later.

If is Hikvision dvr. you just go to hikconnect and register the device. put in your verification code. usually below the dvr or shown on the cloud settings. Once you registered. You download ivms 4500 non hd. That one has the hikconnect. Your device will be shown online . just add. easy. you could also use the qr scanner. hope you get through.

Once your firewall is off all the ports are blocked; turn on and forward manually and if you’re on one of the older flow basic internet packages you’ll need to upgrade it as it doesn’t allow for port forwarding at all due to the type of assigned IP address. I had to do that for one of my locations several years ago, had no problems since then.
