I can advise you however i cant advertise who i work for feel free to ask anything, just try not to buy on ebay/amazon as most sellers sell the us/chinese versions of the cameras

I've got a setup with 4 hikvision Chinese cameras and to be honest, for the difference in price, I'm not sure what's the benefit of UK cameras. I also have a Trendnet camera, which is a rebadged Hikvision, which has given me more trouble than the Chinese ones. I've got both bullet and new+old versions of the dome camera, at the time I purchased them, I was able to get them for around 60% of the cost of the UK version (cheapest was £40 most expensive £56 at the time). Ok, so I can't flash the firmware with the latest, but there are plenty of forums out there to help people 'convert' to UK versions, or at least there was for mine, but I really couldn't see what the advantage was.

My cameras write images to NAS and when I only had 2, I also had stills sent to my FTP site, which I then transferred to my, 5TB Microsoft Cloud account, but had to stop when I got my fourth camera as I started to exceed my monthly FTP allowance.

I would say it might work out best to stick with all Chinese or all UK, though if you were to buy, just because of the problems I've had with the Trendnet.

This is why i recommend uk cams because if you have a problem usually the latest firmware fixes the issue, Hikvision are also currently in the process of blocking Chinese & us cameras from working with uk recorders.

Looking at getting a 4 IP dome camera setup with NVR. I'm thinking either Hikvision or Dahua, any advice?

Thanks

I Would say hikvision as I have previously dealt with QVIS *rebranded dahua* and we had a fairly high return rate.

Dome wise indoor I would go for DS-2CD2142FWD-I 2.8mm outdoor I would suggest using the DS-2CD2342WD-I with the DS-1280ZJ-M Deep base module to make a neater installation. 2.8mm if 2-3m from the ground otherwise use a 4mm

NVR Wise any DS-7604NI-E1*4ch* or DS-7608-E2 *8 ch* - storage wise for a month I would recommend 1TB storage per camera

What's the cheapest price you would expect to pay for the mount? I've currently got my domes supported on lego stands (built by the kids), looking through windows to the outside (you've got to turn off the IR illumination), but want to move a couple outside and need to mount them, seems around the £20 is normal which strikes me as a bit excessive for a camera not costing much more than 2-3x.

I personally have mine talking to a NAS system (you can even configure a windows/Linux share on a computer), where I can keep the disks running with redundancy, plus I had it in the house doing nothing anyway, is there any advantage to using a recorder?

Whatever you buy, you won't be disappointed in the image quality from a Hikvision, Chinese or otherwise configuration, I've not found any need to upgrade the firmware on any of mine, in fact I had tried to flash the trendnet to a Hikvision version, as I think the software is better, but I couldn't get it to work.

Hi Mike

The camera mounts vary from £10-£20 everywhere, I know we charge £12-£24 inc vat. I can give you the mount model numbers if this helps so you could possibly hunt on ebay? Just let me know which camera your looking to purchase

Hey Ben

Need a recommendation for a 4ch system. It's to replace a Swann system that's been installed some 4 years ago and I'm given a £250 budget. What would you suggest? I would like to go IP but I might be pushing it with that budget!

Happy to buy my own HDD is that helps with the price.
Thanks
I think if using UK/European cameras IP is out of the price range your in.
Your best bet would be to use HD-TVI with possibly a Turbo 3 DVR - Releasing in the next few days. and some HD-TVI Cameras
Regarding IP
NVR ~ £120 inc vat
Cameras around £100inc vat each

The cameras I use are the DS-2CD2335-I, DS-2CD2032-I and DS-2CD2332-I, plus a Trendnet TV-IP310PI, any information would be helpful, if you work for a company supplying to the public, can you not mention the name?

All of which have worked flawlessly for at least a year, apart from the 2CD2335 which is relatively new, all seem to have been hacked, to enable English menus (though the older cameras I believe it was always available), some came with a warning not to flash, but since I've not had any problems, they all produce great images, work reliably and are happy writing to a NAS share and send images via FTP, at the time the £50 saving per camera, was more than enough to make me go Chinese.

I would say, don't buy off Ebay if you don't want a potentially none European camera, I'm not sure how you'd tell if it was hacked rather than legit, but you really need to go via a proper UK camera supplier to be absolutely sure. Some of the Chinese suppliers describe their cameras as UK but are clearly hacked Chinese.

The problem I get with the Trendnet is that it insists on a different browser plugin to work, compared with the Chinese cameras, and they seem to be mutually exclusive, I've hacked it so my Trendnet works in IE and the others in Firefox.

cheers

this and purchase an extra hard drive would work out better?
The cameras are only 0.3mp in quality...you want to look for ahd or hd-tvi cameras at 2mp/1080p

Ben
What would be a reasonable cost to have 3 outdoor and one indoor poe ip cameras like the hikvision fitted? Thanks.
IP cameras 4mp quality we sell start at £108 inc vat for the mini bullet ds-2cd2042wd-i and domes ds-2cd2142fwd-i

Fitting varies however we charge £70 per camera, however companies in the southeast charge around £100 per camera

Very informative thread.
As Ben has been very helpful with enquiries so far I'd like to ask a question. I've got an AVTECH kpd764 fitted, with analogue cameras connected.
If like to upgrade the DVR, using the existing wired cameras to a DVR which will email pictures of movements, and FTP events to a server. Also would be nice to have external control of a relay or 2 through a browser or android app. Currently have 3 cameras but would be good if it could be an 8 camera unit to allow for expansion. Can you recommend any?
Thanks in advance.

hi Erk

I'm pretty sure its only the AVTECH Units which actually send the images how you describe i'm afraid. so your best bet would be browsing through their product portfolio and choosing a unit which does everything you want.

unfortunately im only well up on the Hikvision and QVIS/OYN-X

sorry
