I have a couple of questions. I have 2 of the OB-700IR1002812 bullet cameras, a PTZ, an OD-LX700IR2812-w dome camera and two other cameras that are not ODS.  I can access the PTX OSD fine.  Can I access the other OSDs using either web service or at the DVR?

If so, how.

One more question.  The OD-LX700 dome camera shows CAMERAID in yellow letter on both the Web Service and the DVR Monitor.  Does there need to be an address change as in the PTZ? I suspect it may be a setting in the OSD.  Thanks, Larry

The bullet cameras are not designed to access the OSD like that. If those camera had the RS485 then you could extend those wires back to dvr just like you did for the PTZ.   The feature that was turned on is the CAMERA ID. In the camera itself you can set up a name if you want to display.  You can turn that off on its own or default the whole camera.

I have this same camera at home, the OD-LX700IR2812-W. Basically, inside the OSD there is a setting to turn off the display name of the camera. Some DVR's don't let you add a name to the channel so that's when this feature comes in handy. However, if you have one of our DVR's you'll want to disable this feature otherwise you'll be seeing two camera names for that one recording.

 

As Dan mentioned above, unfortunately, you cannnot access the OSD of this camera remotely. You'll need to get a camera with an RS485 connector and run the wires back to the back of your DVR. With the camera's you have, you'll have to go to the camera each time you want to make a change on the settings. I hear in the future some of these cameras may have Remote Controls you can use to change these settings so you won't have to climb on a ladder to make those changes but I haven't seen any of those first hand just yet.

Thanks Dan and Dro, good stuff to know. I think I may need to remove that camera and config the osd.  Should have thought of that first I suppose.

 

Daniel - talked with you and asked for an upgrade file a day or two ago. Thanks, the software upgraded beautifully, not a hitch. Thanks to both of your quick responses. Later, Larry

You could set up remote viewing for a cell phone or ipad. Then login using remote device so you can see what the camera sees when making adjustments at camera. I normally do that after installing cameras when I go back to aim the camera.

Daniel - That would probably be the best use of an Ipad I have seen. And probably "at the camera" adjustment and viewing is essential because of how sensitive the focus seems to be.  Thanks, Larry
