I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I am in the military and will be gone for a few months. I want to setup some cameras in my house so I can see and hear my wife and kids while I'm away. Preferably to interact and have them see me as well. I am looking for IP cameras and a good software program to access the cameras? Perhaps IP cameras are not the way to go, if anyone has another idea. The concept would be for me to see through different cameras setup in my house remotely. I am looking for somewhat inexpensive cameras but I would definitely pay a little more if the quality was significantly better. Also, I would need a good software program to access the cameras. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

First of all, lets assume I have a static ip.
I want to view about 5 security cameras from a remote location with Internet access.
So my questions are:
1. Would I do this with a vpn?
2. Could I stream them some how to a website?
3. Is there a video to LAN converter. So, lets say that I have a rca connection (the yellow one) and something that would take that signal, and I could use the vpn to view it?
Thanks!

I don't know if this belongs here or in Hardware, so feel free to move this thread if need be. Anyway, I have several inexpensive security cameras I would like to hook up to my computer to keep surveillance around my home at night and when I am away. Do I need a video capture card to do this. The cameras just have an RCA plug on them. I've hooked them up to my vcr and they worked fine, but I would like to record the images to my computer HD or be able to watch them in realtime. What do I need and how do I hook them up? Any input would be appreciated.

HI,I was just sitting here at my PC and was thinking about the clarity of security cameras
and was wondering if that is related to like TV screens i.e. 720p,1080p and such because if
you watch on the NEWS channels some of the pictures are so bad you could not even recognize

Can anyone help me with the camera server to static ip thing?

I can see the camera server on LAN fine, and i can see the web fine, but i cant see the camera server from a remote location on the web.

i have a static ip but entering that information into the server locks me out and i have to re-enter the default ip and port 80 settings to be able to talk to it again.

I'm running the AP software of both server and isp provided ST780 wireless router from my xp laptop, and i can individually talk to both via LAN.

There is no manufacturer advice other than open ports 5000 - 5002, tried that and it did nothing.

To me this sreams "ROUTER!!!!" and there are some things that are messing with my head! Firstly the ST780 KNOWS... that it has somethin plugged up its tail pipe but cant recognise it!!! In the software it shows a physical address and an ip address but they dont match and therefore it wont list the server as a device. Its either unknown or there is no entry.

So.... my questions to you fine people are ..... do i persevere with port forwarding? Does the Static ip info have to be entered into the server? or is it enough to forward from the static to the default lan ip and port 80 settings? How does this help the ST780 to recognise the server or should i be buying a router that cares!!!

Or am i 1 octet short of a full ip and missing the point completely????

So a few weeks ago we installed usb security cameras. They were set to record to our xp desktop on the d drive. we have not had them recoding for the last few weeks. The problem is that we set the username and password for the camera net work. But today, when I tried to turn my computer on the log in screen was different. Instead of the blue screen , I got a black screen with a small dialog box with username and password for the camera combined in the username box. in the password box were characters [I don't know what characters] and another dialog box saying it couldn't log me in.

My apartment building installed security cameras. Was told I could monitor the cameras on my PC and the tech guy will install what is needed to make it happen. What it looked like he only loaded an IP address into the address bar. He was done in a matter of a minute and things worked great. I did put the link into my favorites bar. I don?t monitor the cameras everyday but I do use it.

I upgraded to Windows 10 everything seems to be working great, except the security cameras monitoring. I went to the manager?s office they said the IP changed and I have entered the new IP address and it?s not working for me.

It looked so simple when the tech guy did it.

The manager?s office said the tech guy will come and fix it, well I have been waiting for a few months.

So on my own doing some research it looks like he loaded an ADD ON called ?SurveillanceCtrl Control? and in ?C:/webrec? maybe something happened to them when I load Windows 10.

I am using a IFS 24-port Gigabit Stackable Managed PoE Switch IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) 1 U and have a power question. I am using it to run IP security cameras on a job and don't have the switch on-line yet. The cameras are going in and we are unable to power them/ aim and focus without it. Is it possible to make an RJ 45 "adapter" to temporarily power them up at the camera? My thoughts are to find the pins that provide power from the switch, make an RJ plug that only has 2 wires in it and connect them to a separate portable power supply, then plug directly into the camera for setup. Then land the switch when the rack is ready.

Q: 568B is what they will be wired for, which pins are for power ( P+ and P- )

Q: What is the correct / standard voltage from the PoE port ?- or does this depend on the camera?- it shouldn't, the cameras are not field selectable- they are IEEE 802.3af.

Q: Can this be done? I only need power for now and I have a separate video out on the cameras for a test monitor.

....it's more of a Tech guy/ bench guy question I know, but I trust the opinions here. Any help is appreciated.

Hello!

I am an IT Administrator for a local business, and we recently had a large storm. We were required to replace all existing networking gear. Our security camera system is now unable to be viewed via app. I have tried so many things that it is not even funny at this point - it is ridiculous.

I have tried opening the ports on the Arris, but a port scan reveals they are in fact closed. I don't see a place to open ports on the Netgear - does this mean that we should purchase a new router, other than the Netgear? (Personally, I prefer something other than it but..)

Network/Camera setup:

NETWORK:

- Arris router (ISP provided w/ coax going into it)

- Netgear smart (Business bought , Arris connects to this which this then projects a 2.4ghz and a 5ghz wireless network, along with a 2.4ghz guest wireless connection.

CAMERA:

- One "Platnium" DVR - Configured network correctly
- One "Platnium" NVR - Configured network correctly

I need to know how to fix this issue that I am having.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to reply.

Thank you so much!

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a new hard drive that I can record my surveillance footage with, the only problem I am having at the moment is that I click record onto the hard drive and after a while the hard drive goes into sleep mode or whatever. Then at the end of it all when I decide to stop recording it doesn't save onto my hard drive.

So all I need to know really is there any way of keeping my hard drive running all the time so that it doesn't go into this sleep mode.

I have already gone into my power settings and disabled the USB selective suspend setting and this hasn't worked for me.

Thanks (Y)

A:Security Cameras & External Hard Drive

Hi there
seems to me that you've got two problems here.

1) The recording camera software -- IMO this should be writing to disk every so often rather than waiting to the end of the recording -- I don't know the software but since its security related it must be capable of creating decent timestamps and write to a log file every so often. You should perhaps depending on the software even be able to have the logs re use themselves say after 5 logs have been created --overwrite log 1 again etc.

Without knowing the setup / settings of this program its impossible to say why data isn't being written to the disk --maybe it IS but to a file on drive C and you have to copy the data manually. I should definitely look at this.


2) Power / sleep / hibernate settings on the computer --ensure that disks are turned off --never, computer isn't hibernated / screen saved etc.

You CAN have the screen to switch off after so many minutes --that won't be a problem.

Another silly problem believe it or not is that the hard disc can be filled so it will stop -- but the directory entry is not written so the disk still appears empty or at least your footage won't be there.

Video footage can consume INORDINATE amounts of data if the compression etc isn't set decently.

Cheers

A recent study by security firm Protection1 discovered over 6,000 no-password, open-access security cameras spread across the US.

According to the company's findings, many of these cameras are located in public places, at the headquarters of private enterprises, and even in the homes of many Americans.

Protection1 noted that the highest concentration of unprotected cameras is around big urban centers, such as the San Francisco Bay area, the Los Angeles area, Seattle, Chicago, the Florida cities, and all over the Atlantic coast, from Washington DC to Boston.

A camera without a password is a peeping hole for crooks
These towns are the centers of many security hot spots, like airports, military bases, and hospitals, so the large number of unprotected cameras should ring alarm bells with the people in charge of those systems.

Protection1 also ranked the number of unprotected cameras per 100,000 residents and came up with a top ten cities with the largest density of open-access cameras.

Leading the pack is the small town of Walnut Creek, California, with 89.69 open-access cameras per 100,000 citizens. The other towns in this top ten list were also small-to-medium cities, and Protection1 believes that the lack of critical security needs in these smaller towns has allowed authorities to relax when it comes to the e-security of these systems.

I am a total newbie to all this DDNS stuff, but here goes...
My parents just installed some security cameras at their home. They would liek to be able to view the cameras when they are away via the internet. I went over there this weekend and got the DVR unit hooked up to their home network, and assigned it a static IP address using DHCP reservations in the routers settings. They can view their cameras now from their home computers with no problem.
Now, for my question....I read that the only way they will be able to view their cameras when away is if they got a DNS host. I read about having to forward ports and got them signed up with dyndns.com free account.

Is it just me or do you find digital still cameras or video cameras are lacking with the time? What I mean by that is video editing software is old and the hardware and software does not support 64 bit.

It seems every thing is going 64 bit now for some reason.But alot of the software is 32 bit like most software and hardware out there.The editing software is old .But if you go to the store most all new computers and OS are 64 bit.

Are 64 bit that much faster than 32 bit ?I know with 64 bit you can address more memory than 4GB of RAM.But I guess a CPU working with 64 bit can do more than 32 bit .
How do the still cameras or video cameras work on Windows Vista that is 64 bit?How are the new hardware and software out there work with 64 bit like the new editing software that is 64 bit?

sorry if my question is confusing but I really do not know what I'm talking about here.
 

A:still cameras or video cameras lacking with the time?

how do you know they don't support it? more and more every day there are new drivers coming out for 64bit. and with the 32bit not recognizing 4GB of ram. i read that when they come out with the full SP1 for vista. there's going to be a fix for the 32bit to recognize all the ram.

A:want either NO security software, or pre-installed Norton Security

Security software comes bundled with any computer (these days) based upon the recognized need for such...and the fact that there is a partnership between system manufacturers and security software vendors that facilitates the install of unwanted software on any OEM system.  This is done in spite of the fact that Microsoft provides security software as part of any O/S that is more recent than XP.

Without thinking, I accidentally hit yes instead of cancel and now my machine is infected with spyware. When the computer starts, a program called "System Security" pops up that appears to do a system scan and finds 38 trojans and spyware. Since I have never heard of "System Security" before, I am almost positive that I have been infected and that the "System Security" software is in fact part of the malware itself.

I ran HijackThis v2.0.2 after startup and this is the log that resulted. I did not kill any of the processes that I believe to be malware and have not yet run any antispyware software such as Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware. I have physically disconnected my machine from the network.

Q: Cameras

Was hoping to get an idea how to set up a camera that will feed a couple of TV's spaced about 100 feet apart.
This would be used for Karaoke and I currently have a regular security camera that I am using to capture the singers and send to one TV but the image quality is a joke.

I think I would need a better camera that what I am using and am open to suggestions. Are there any distance limitations in terms of line feeds or any other considerations that I am overlooking? These same concerns are also applied to audio.

Thanks.
 

A:Cameras

With my limited knowledge I will tell you how I would do it on a budget. I would put a small third TV in the mix – one with AV in and out connections. I would get a camera with AV out and connect to the TV. Then I would use something like the X-10 wireless video sender for $50. You would need a second receiver and I have no idea how much that is. A second alternative might be to use a laptop or desktop and send with unit something like the $70 unit from X-10, which also would need a second receiver. I’m not familiar enough with camcorders to tell you how to get the video to the computer – perhaps with a TV or capture card if the camcorder is analog. They are both listed on this page: http://www.x10.com/entertainment/index.html

If your two displays are large screen HD displays you would need more competent gear. I’ve used the $50 X-10 unit and it will transmit decent quality for short distances. 100 feet should be fine – especially if they are line of sight from the transmitter. The transmitter is somewhat directional, but a Y connector should let you use two transmitters if that becomes necessary.

Before you can fix it you'll need to isolate the problem. Sure, it could be a router problem. It could be a computer problem. It could be a wireless issue if either camera or computer is connected by Wi-Fi. My top suspect is a camera problem.

I'm trying to organize some home security cameras to be remotely accessed and am having some trouble. Router as well as camera support have been noneventful, so here I am again, (I guess I really need to donate here). I have a Linksys WRT150N Router with cable broadband, one hardwired computer and two wireless computers in the house. Cameras are one hardwired Trendnet TV-IP410 and two wireless TV-IP410W cameras. Configuration throught the router with 'port forwarding' has been sketchy at best but here is what I have ended up with...hard wired Cam 1 internet IP address is 71.xx.xxx.xxx and is routing through the default port of 80. The other two which are wireless, lets make this a bit easier and just say one other that is wireless assigned to port 82. This make make sense to someone else but I'm confused. I can remotely access the hardwired cam on the browser at it's IP address of 71.xx.xxx.xxx and it works fine! the other I can access but only by including the "http://" prefix and adding " :82 " to the end , which is the cams port. Is this odd? Should the cam2 (wireless) not be abled to be accessed on the browser directly at 71.xx.xxx.xxx:82?
They do have different static IP addresses on the local network as the first is 192.168.
1.240 (defaulted) and the second is 192.168.1.241. Local access on the second requires the http:// as well. ie. "http://192.168.1.241:82". Is this normal or have I fubar'ed the configuratio... Read more

A:Help with remote cameras please!!

you need to transfer port 82 from inside to outside. Open your route manager and find PAT tool. Now is only port 80 forwarded from inside > outside.

I want to buy a digital camera.which is the best one to buy?(preferred-sony/canon).I chose a canon 10MP camera costing Rs 9899.I dont know if canon is a good company.Can anyone suggest any more cameras?Price range-till Rs 10,000.
 

A:digital cameras (what to buy?)

Canon makes very good digital cameras. Many people think they are the best. I’ve never ended up buying a Canon because there was always something else with features I preferred. But if the Canon you are looking at has the features you want I doubt you will find a better camera.

As far as specific recommendations there is no way to guess what features and size you are looking for. The Canon A series for example probably takes the best photos for the price of anything on the market, but you can’t put one in your pocket. And I doubt many here are familiar with your market prices.

Hi,
I bought two TURBO-X SD400 web cameras that work fine in my windows 8.1 laptop(for my stereo vision project), but when I unplug the second one I get an BSOD with BAD_POOL_CALLER. I have installed the drivers from the cd given,updated the drivers of my graphics card (Intel Graphics 3000) and I have followed the steps below:
"Control Panel > System and Security > System > Device Manager
- Drop down the category "Sound Video and Game Controllers"
- Right-click your webcam's mic listing and select Update Driver
- Choose Browse My Computer and the Let Me Pick option - Select USB Audio Device from the list and click Next"

Can you help me stop having this problem?
Thanx!

I tend to think that you're demanding a lot of work out of a the graphics adapter.
But we'll need this info to start BSOD diagnostics: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Just wondering if anyone has some experience with this.

I'm new to digital slrs. I've always just used point and shoot cameras.

I just purchased a Canon Rebel XT and plan on using it outdoors, mainly too take pictures of creeks and bodies of water.

Is there a certain kind of lens I should be using for this? I know wearing polarized sunglasses allows me to see "through" the water in creeks, is there some kind of filter or lens I can use that will have the same affect?

Thanks guys!

Hello- not sure if this is the right place to post this but I know we have a lot of knowledgeable people around here. I am looking for advice and suggestions on a relatively affordable video camera. I have not owned one for years but am about to have a new baby (18 years after the last one!! Technology has definitely changed!) and am looking to purchase a camera. I thought I might have found a great one albeit a bit out of my price range- the Canon HF20, but in reading reviews about it there seems to be some issues with your needing to have a fairly powerful computer to handle uploading and editing the files. I'm running XP Pro right now- not sure of too many other details as I just set up this hand-me-down computer a couple weeks ago, but it is a few years old and I doubt it's the fastest in the West. Oh- wait- I looked at the case and it does say it's a 2.6 GH Intel Celeron Processor. It had 256 MB ram but I added I think it was another 512. Not sure if this is sufficient to deal with the camera mentioned.

Anyway, I'm attracted to the idea of recording directly to hard-drive, but am open to suggestions if this isn't really the best way. I'd like something that works well indoors-- and I don't even know what they mean when they say that HF20 doesn't have a viewfinder- surely there is some way to see what your pointing at? Anyway- I look forward to y'all's advice-- and actually it wouldn't hurt to gather info as to peopl... Read more

A:Video Cameras?

When it says "no viewfinder" it means you have to use the LCD viewing screen as a viewfinder.

Not sure about others but I really struggle with the font and lack of breaking into paragraphs, probably why your question has not been answered.

I use my Fujifilm S2000HD for both still and video.
10 MP, 15 x zoom and it captures full resolution HDTV movies, length only limited by the memory card fitted.

Hello everyone,
A little background at first:
I had one ISP at my home for internet. I had configured port forwarding rule on its router to access my cameras on internet through Live IP.

New requirement:
Now I have two ISPs, both with live IPs. I want internet to be redundant which I know I can achieve through any load balancer. But can I access my cameras with both Live IPs through internet?? If yes please suggest any load balancer or router that has this option available.

Thanks in advance

It's a USB forum, and they may have an answer there. And I suspect you'll get an answer here eventually . . . got to be patient here . . . this is a busy forum (which is good . . . the USB forum I gave the link to is not that busy, so you may get an answer here first).

Please humor an old man and give me your thoughts on this question.

Comparing two cameras:

Nikon D90: This is a 12-megapixel (native, not interpolated resolution) camera. Primary purpose is to convert about fifteen thousand personal family photos from 35mm slides to digital. After that project is finished, I will probably sell it.

Panasonic HDC-TM700K Camcorder: This is the camera I would use most and keep.

According to a reply from Panasonic, HDC-TM700K Camcorder is capable of 12-megapixel native resolution for still images (not interpolated).

Since the purchase of the D90 is for converting 35mm slides to digital and the Panasonic camcorder has the same resolution for still pictures, why should I not just get only the camcorder for the job and save dollars?

What differences would I see, if any?

Recently, I have won prize money from some film competitions, and I think I'll buy a new camera with it. I was looking into the Canon D60 because of its full HD and high still quality, along with its ability to support an SD card. The only down side is it costs way more than I can bare to afford. I'm sticking around the $600 mark. Are there any cameras out there that are like this?
