I will admit that the lac of PoE on non pro devices is crap but I really rate the Wifi, it's a piece of piss to set up and works a dream. Infact, just bought 6 more for another school I'm working with now.

Will probably give the camera a miss in that case!

Shouldn't have had to tbh. For the cost of sending a PoE injector with every piece of equipment they could have just built proper 48v PoE into it to begin with.

Camera is still crap though.

It's big, mount isn't very good and the worst bit about it is the way the Ethernet cable comes out the bottom, one of the worst designs I've seen.

Yep, John failed to look at all of the range.

Got one of the access points too, none of you mentioned that they aren't 802.3af compliant so don't work with most PoE switches, which is really crap.


All of the Pro range are? I'm using UAP-AC's with NetGear ProSafe Switches...

I spotted that when looking at them for cameras instead of Hikvisions; seems you have use their own switches/injectors :|

Saying that, i believe the new 'pro' camera is compliant......

I have been looking at this kit. Seems reasonable for the money.

Having just fitted a load of Hikvision cameras I am seriously impressed.

They were likely to be better than the ones suggested above but I am sold on the brand.

Tempted to get a few thrown up around the house here for peace of mind.

I have a microserver but I am wondering if its worth just getting a separate NVR/DVR? Any thoughts on that?

I got a cheap tplink one, does the job.

I've just taken delivery of two hikvisions from John's Chinese seller, so I'm after something to power them.

Was looking at eBay, but utu me

Talking of POE switches.. anyone want to buy a Netgear FS108P ? :)

Where possible id stay away from injectors, few reasons, cheap ones have a high failure rate, also they are not that cost effective. If you stick a managed PoE switch in you have the ability to remotely reboot the cameras.

Milestone Systems for Software.

Dependant on what size system you are having but i would Look at Essential - http://www.milestonesys.com/Software/XProtect-IP-Video-Surveillance/xprotectessential/

can download a free trial.

How much you looking to spend on software and cameras?

posted on 25th Sep 14 at 12:52

I've found that most aren't proper POE i.e. 48v..

Its easier to buy a normal 12v IP camera and buy the power injectors/splitters :D

Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I around 100 from UK sellers; as John said, can get them cheaper from China but there's plenty of fakes about.

Software, what ever you got access to. Surveillance Station is pretty reasonable although i wouldn't go out my way to use it though - only use it because i already had a Synology/XPEnology system running.

Synology with Surveillance station and the hikvision cameras. Can get them cheaper from China but load of UK sellers.

Who to use? Want server software and PoE ethernet, preferably scalable easily. Not stuff from Chinese eBay. Cost effective but not cheap! :)
