I purchased a hybrid DVR/NVR and can not get it to work with my Arecont AV8185 Camera and it appears to be on the list of supported cameras. Id there a special trick to get the DVR to detect the IP of the camera?

Thank you for your inquire. what is the current resolution you have this camera set at? OUr Hybrid DVR on the digital channels support up to 1080p resolution. Laugh

Also, make sure your firmware is up to date...  I see that this camera is out of manufacture.  Plus its actually (at least) four cameras and may require many channels of recording to work properly.  I'm not certain what this requires to connect to our NVR or what the process or procedures are.  However, I'm sure if it can be done, our guys can help.  Wink  I've included a link to the camera:

As far as I can tell it is set to 1080. The problem is that the DVR won't detect it or the IP.

Yes it does have four cameras. It will cover 180 deg. with them on motion detect. Why won't it detect anything during DVR setup?

I just looked at the specifications and it appears to me that this camera is NOT ONVIF compliant. I do not see how it will work if Arecont did not build in ONVIF protocol.

Hello, 

 

As you see in the NVR 3rd party compatible cameras, the feature for IP detection is not marked, that means that you cannot search it from the NVR and it will need to be added manually. I have attached the NVR 3rd party camera support file. In there you can see specifically what the compatibilities are.

Cool
