    0 IP camera default password list (2019)

    Sometimes you have an IP camera just in front of you but have no idea how to get access to it just because you lost the default password.

    Believe me, I've been there and I know exactly how frustrating it is to see the message "invalid password" on the screen when trying to login into the camera.

    That's why I created this IP camera default password list, so people can use it.

    Due to security issues in the past, most of the new IP cameras don't have a default password and you have to create one during the installation. This password list is for old IP camera models or cameras which still have old firmware.

    Anyway, just trying using it.... Good luck.

    0 Hikvision DVR won’t display channels (solved)

    Sometimes you have to figure out what's wrong with a DVR that you even didn't configure yourself. So it's better to be prepared to fix different types of problems, like channels that don't display on the screen for no apparent reason.



    In this article, I explain how to fix the issue with the Hikvision DVR that won't display the channels on the screen. (In fact, it's just a configuration detail).

    As you can see in the picture above, the channel 1 is not available on the menu, which indicates that's just a configuration that was done by somebody else.


    Check the channel

    I know you probably did that already, but just to make sure everything is OK, check the DVR channel that is not showing up to guarantee it gets a video signal.

    Go to the Camera management > OSD and select the channel you want.



    If you see that the channel is working you are good to go to the next step.


    Fix the configuration

    The Hikvision DVR allows you to select the channels you want to display on the screen and hiding the ones you don't want to. It's just a question of configuration.

    To change the configuration open the Configuration menu. 



    Click on the "Live View" button to open the next screen.



    Check which channels are being displayed.

    The picture below shows the Channel A1 icon with the yellow color. That was after I click the channel to enable it (It was white before).



    Look at the Channel A2, which is the same thing. The icon is yellow which indicates the channel is active and being displayed. The same happens for the other channels.




    You can also check if all the channels are being displayed in different layouts.

    The picture below shows all the cameras enabled for the 2x2 layout.




    Check the result

    After changing the display configuration, just come back to the main screen to check if it's working. As you can see in the picture below, all the channels available now and you can select any of them to display on the screen.




    Sometimes a quick configuration is all you need to solve a problem.


    Obviously, there are other problems related to cameras that won't display on the screen, but in this specific case there's no issue related to the cameras, cables or something else, so be careful to not try to fix a problem that doesn't exist.


    I hope this article helps you to solve your "problem".





    0 How do security camera systems work !

    A surveillance system sends the videos from the security cameras installed in different places to a monitoring center where it is possible to monitor everything in real time and record the footage to have evidence.

    It works in different situations, from home monitoring to applications with thousands of cameras installed in cities, factories, hospitals, schools, laboratories and any other environments that require monitoring and recording, whether for safety or process control.

    With security camera surveillance systems, operators can watch what happens in front of each camera and react if something goes wrong.


    The evolution of the surveillance systems

    Below a quick description of the surveillance systems used over time, from the basic analog cameras and recorders to the modern digital  IP systems.

    1. Analog system with Time-Lapse recording

    The cameras generate analog signals and send them to an analog recorder (VCR) that stores the information in an analog format, this technology is very old and no longer used in new surveillance projects.



    2. Hybrid system with computer recording

    The cameras generate analog signals and send them to a computer that uses a capture card and software which converts the signals from analog to digital and record on the hard drive.


    4. IP system with NVR (Network Video Recorder)

    The cameras generate digital signals and send them to a digital video recorder which converts the signals to digital to store the information into a hard drive.



    0 Understanding Security Cameras With Optical Zoom

    “How much optical zoom do I need in a security camera? Is 5X optical zoom okay?” These are some of the questions that most customers ask when choosing a security camera for their business or property surveillance needs.

    Security cameras with optical zoom can close in on their frame to see key details at longer distances, and can also maintain focus as their focal length changes. Unlike digital zoom, this doesn’t compromise the quality of the image.


    How Optical Zoom Works


    Optical zoom is achieved by the actual adjustment of camera optics, such as moving or rotating different lenses inside the security cameras. Think of it as looking through a pair of binoculars. If you’re buying a security camera with X3, X4, X5, or higher optical zoom, that number represents the exact amount of magnification that the security camera zoom lens is capable of performing. The higher the security camera optical zoom, the better.


    What is Digital Zoom?


    Digital zoom expands the size of pixels in a digital image, making it appear bigger. At some point, you’ll actually be able to see the pixelation, making the image look “blocky”. It’s far better to optically zoom into an area of observation first for the highest quality footage. You can always apply a digital zoom at a later point if you’d like.


    Types of Optical Zoom Security Cameras



    Manual Optical Zoom - These security cameras have to be adjusted manually to achieve the desired zoom level and viewing angle before you set them up to start recording. Once installed, and you need to re-adjust the zoom, you’ll have to remove the camera housing to adjust the varifocal lens inside the camera. This can be a huge inconvenience, especially if you have installed the cameras in places like high walls or ceilings. This option is no longer viable in most cases.

    • IP Security Cameras with Motorized Zoom - With these security cameras, you can simply zoom in and out with the on-screen self-monitoring controls on your security camera client PC software or mobile app. The motorized camera lens helps maintain focus when the focal length changes.
    • Security Cameras with Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) - PTZ security cameras are the ultimate option when it comes to optical zoom security cameras. These cameras offer all-around surveillance and protection for your home, business, or other property with excellent zooming capabilities at different angles. Some of these PTZ cameras can offer 90° tilt, 360° pan, and higher optical zoom. This means you can get as many details as you want when monitoring your property


    One of the biggest benefits of optical zoom security cameras is the fact that you won’t experience image quality degradation. Even at a long distance, you’ll still enjoy sharp images. While you can’t add optical zoom after a surveillance video is recorded, optical zoom security cameras are a great choice for many applications where capturing quality images and as much detail as possible is a top surveillance priority.

    1 Keep an Eye on These Areas of Your Apartment Complex


    When you own or manage an apartment complex, security should always at the top of your list of concerns. There’s no better way to ensure the security of your residents and your apartment complex than to install a high-quality security camera system. A well-planned and professionally installed security camera system can not only help reduce crime and vandalism around your apartment complex property, but it can also help ensure the safety of your residents in common areas and help protect you from frivolous lawsuits. Here are just a few of the essential areas of your apartment complex that can benefit from a professional security camera system.



    Crime prevention

    If you’re a property manager or apartment complex owner, you know that criminal activity can have a significant impact on your community. A good video surveillance system not only helps deter criminal activity, but it can also make your community more sought after.

    When it comes to crime, convenience and ease are key. When a potential burglar or vandal knows that an apartment community is being monitored by a security camera system, they are less likely to target your tenants. Additionally, when a crime does occur, you can turn your security camera footage over to police as evidence to help catch and prosecute the culprit.

    Unfortunately, burglars and thieves from outside your community aren’t the only people you have to be concerned about. If you constantly receive complaints about a particular resident or have recurring issues in a specific apartment block, a security camera system can help you determine who is at fault.

    For residents, knowing that the common areas of the apartment complex are being monitored may keep them from doing anything that could violate their lease – like bringing in an unauthorized pet or moving in an additional person who isn’t on the lease. Security camera systems can help bring peace of mind to all of your residents and prevent the bad behavior a few bad apples from ruining the community experience for everyone else. to explore more ways that a security camera system can help improve the safety of your apartment community.


    Mind parking lots

    Parking lots are a common source of pain for many apartment managers and owners. From vehicle accidents and break-ins to slips and falls, training an eye on your parking areas can help save you some serious headache down the road.

    When someone falls in your parking lot or takes a spill on a sidewalk, it’s human nature to want to assume that the story you’re hearing is the truth. However, personal injury lawsuits are one of the most common types of frivolous lawsuits that small businesses have to deal with each year, including apartment complex communities. If a tenant or visitor falls on your property, it’s often a matter of he said-she said, but security camera footage can provide a clearer picture of the facts.

    With over 50% of lawsuits targeting small businesses, a security camera system can go a long way to protect your complex and your residents who suffer legitimate injuries. For outdoor areas like parking lots, be sure to select weatherproof IP cameras that can withstand even the coldest temperatures and strongest storms.

    Keep common areas safe




    mmon areas like pools, fitness centers, laundry areas, and secure mailbox areas are a luxury that many apartment complex residents have come to expect. Without on-site security or security cameras, some residents may be hesitant to visit these areas alone or after dark. Keeping your residents safe in these areas, especially at night, is essential to providing the best living experience in your apartment complex.

    Pools and fitness centers can often be magnets for injury and nefarious incidents. Ensuring that residents and their guests know that the area is being monitored by a security camera and that the footage is reviewed can help reduce the number of complaints and issues you have in these areas significantly. For example, residents will be less likely to use the pool outside of posted hours or to engage in non-sanctioned activities in the pool area. Check out Security Cameras for Swimming Pools for some of our tried-and-true tips for keeping your pool safe and secure.

    For mail areas, security cameras provide an added sense of protection during the holiday season for package deliveries. In laundry areas, security cameras can pull double duty making residents feel safe from nefarious actors and protecting their clothing and other property they may leave behind as they enter and exit the facility. Offering more amenities to residents allows you to charge a premium on rents and attract higher quality tenants and installing a high-quality security camera system helps you protect that investment.

    Work smarter not harder! 

    Being an apartment community manager or complex owner is demanding and stressful enough without having to spend extra hours sitting in the leasing office reviewing security camera footage. Remote viewing options allow apartment owners and managers to keep an eye on their property at all times from anywhere in the world.

    0 Are PTZ Cameras Right for Your Business?

    In the world of security camera systems, few cameras offer as many options and features as the Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera. With the ability to monitor large areas with ease, zoom in on events in real time, and fully remote control options, PTZ cameras are a popular and viable option for businesses across a variety of industries. Read on to explore more about PTZ cameras, their most popular features, and why you may want to choose a PTZ camera for your business.

    What is a PTZ camera?

    PTZ refers to a camera’s ability to move its lens and refocus in real time. Featuring a lens that can rotate on three axes, PTZ cameras offer users complete control over the field of view. Utilizing the software on the system’s Network Video Recorder or on the remote viewing app, you can rotate your camera in any direction while zooming in or out in real time. PTZ cameras offer the unique ability to view a large area, while also keeping an eye on even the smallest details.

    Monitor large areas




    Imagine being able to reduce the cost of covering large areas of your business or worksite without sacrificing resolution or image quality. The multiple features of PTZ cameras allow them to be used for both wide-area monitoring and zooming in to provide more details.

    While fixed cameras are able to cover only a narrow area, PTZ cameras enable business owners to cover large areas with fewer cameras. For outdoor-based businesses, like construction sites or gravel pits, PTZ cameras offer an efficient option for monitoring large worksites, while also allowing users to zoom in on-site visitors, potential thieves, and others. PTZ cameras can also zoom in to help identify license plate numbers of vehicles that visit your site after hours.

    Narrow your focus

    PTZ cameras combine the ability to cover large areas with the option to zoom in and focus on details in real time. Instead of having to cover an area with multiple cameras with different features, your PTZ camera enables you to get both a high-level and detailed view of your worksite or business.

    One of the most popular applications for PTZ cameras is in parking lots. When you’re dealing with claims of vehicle damage from carts, slip and fall injuries, or hit-and-run incidents in your parking lot, the ability get a view of the entire lot and zoom in on specific incidents to get more detail is invaluable.

    Remote control

    Thanks to the software on your NVR or remote viewing app, you and your security team can have full access to your PTZ cameras anytime from anywhere. Instead of relying on a network of cameras to catch parts of an incident, remote control access of your PTZ camera allows you to catch all the action from one camera unit.

    With the ability to pan, tilt, or zoom in on the action in real time, PTZ cameras are a popular choice for monitoring large car dealerships. By allowing you to keep an eye on both all of your inventory at once and keep an eye on any suspicious individuals who might enter the lot after hours, your PTZ camera can provide you with the security of an entire system at a fraction of the cost.

    Another popular use for PTZ cameras is in schools and on university campuses. In traditional school settings, security and office personnel can keep an eye on large open areas like the playground or entryway, while also monitoring and tracking potential bullying incidents and deploying staff to respond faster. On university campuses, PTZ cameras can be utilized outdoors on the quad or at sports arenas and fields to provide additional layers of security for students and visitors.



    0 The US is reportedly considering blacklisting Hikvision — A Chinese surveillance tech giant

    The United States Government is considering placing limitations on the Chinese surveillance giant Hikvision’s ability to buy American technology.

    The U.S. Commerce Department would place Hikvision on an “entity list,” which requires American companies to get government approval before they conduct businesses with any foreign company listed. These limits would effectively place the company on a United States blacklist for potentially posing a threat to national security and privacy.

    Hikvision products enable their clients to track anyone around the country by using technology that can analyze their facial features, body characteristics or gait. The emergence of new technology like artificial intelligence, speech monitoring and genetic testing is making monitoring networks, like the ones used by Hikvision, increasingly effective. The latest technology can also be used to monitor activity considered unusual by officials, such as people running or crowds gathering. Though useful for government officials to monitor its citizens, such technology can easily provide opportunities for these products to be intrusive on their customers’ privacy. Because of the economic, technological and geopolitical threat this could pose, the U.S. government is cracking down on technology companies like Hikvision and Huawei. 


    The fear of backdoors

    After an investigation by Amazon on expensive servers that were installed for a company called Elemental by Super Micro Computer Inc. (commonly known as Supermicro), tiny microchips that weren’t a part of the boards’ original design were found nested on the servers’ motherboards. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shock-wave through the intelligence community. After the ensuing probe, investigators determined that the chips, which were disguised as signal conditioning couplers, allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered motherboards. These chips incorporated memory, networking capability and sufficient power for an attack. Essentially, anyone with access to the hidden backdoor could gain access to your private network — which includes your surveillance system.

    These servers were discovered inside the data centers operated by dozens of other companies. As soon as these servers were installed and switched on, the microchip could alter the operating system’s core so it could accept modifications. This secret microchip also had the ability to contact computers controlled by hackers in search of further instructions and code.

    Surveillance in China

    In China, the surveillance industry is being used extensively to keep tabs on its own citizens. Their government is using surveillance technology, including facial recognition via CCTV cameras, to target certain ethnic groups who have accused the government of discriminating against their culture and religion. China has built what amounts to a police state in the country’s northwestern region — Xinjiang — which includes extensive surveillance powered by companies like Hikvision.






    Chinese surveillance firms have also began exporting this technology to other nations like Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates, who also wish to monitor their citizens in a similar manner.

    What this means for Hikvision customers

    Hikvision is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of video surveillance products and is central to China’s ambitions to be the top global exporter in the surveillance industry. Due to the recent limitations and developments, American companies who currently supply products to Hikvision may have to receive government approval first. In the immediate future, businesses and individuals will still be permitted to buy Hikvision products. However, it is likely that over time these regulations will become stricter due to the threat that their products could pose to national security. Which means if you’re using a Hikvision system, you may lose support and the ability to buy replacement products from them in the near future.

    Avoid Chinese knockoffs

    We specialize in Geovision surveillance equipment, which is one of the most highly revered brands in the industry. With the growing interest in workplace security from companies throughout the nation, it’s important to consider where you’re getting your equipment. When you buy your equipment from untested or unreliable distributors, you’re taking more than just a security risk. Less reputable brands are infamous for advertising higher resolution than their cameras can output. Not to mention the features they advertise — like motion detection, facial recognition, infrared sensors and remote access — often don’t perform as well as they make it seem.
