Does anyone have cctv installed? If so how much does it cost to run? Is it a good deterrent for burglars?

had some guy fit me 5 cameras, all seem ok, until we had an incident and the playback was terrible. so spoke with hikvision support (who viewed camera remotely) and explained that the connecters to 3 of the cameras where not connected correctly.

 

does anyone know anyone that can come out and repair these connecters to cameras. tried calling the guy that fitted these but mobile switch off.

 

cheers peeps

2 x cameras (1x 720p, 1x 1080p) + 1 IR floodlight

 

I use my own CCTV server (a old windows PC) so it only costs me the electricity.

Hi,

 

Does anyone have a contact number for a CCTV engineer please. I've got one of those cameras that you can access via your mobile phone. It has, however, decided to play up just giving me a blank screen showing only time and date. No robbers etc. :roll: Any help would be appreciated. Based in Millhouses.

 

Cheers

Oliver

 

 

An IP camera that plugs into the internet or WiFi?

 

Could be that the ports aren't open on your router to be able to access the feed?

 

Can you get to it from a computer?

I'm looking for a recommendation for getting my home CCTV recorder repaired. I would also be pleased to know of any companies NOT to go to, hope someone can help, thank you.

Try Nova electronics

700-702 Attercliffe Rd, Sheffield S9 3RP

They repair most electronic stuff.

 

Dont try Greggs. They just sell high fat low quality food and DO NOT repair electronics.

B .... harddrive ( normally cheap non cctv rated units )
