Is this an inclusive list or just cameras you have tested, and is it possible to configure an Onvif compatible camera from another brand?

The cameras on the list show the capabilities that will have on our NVR, if you have a camera that is not in that list but is onvif there is a chance that might work, but we will not know the capabilities that will actually work. Maybe the only way the camera will work is if its recording at 24/7 non stop recording, or it will not be able to auto connect if the NVR reboots, etc....

The cameras that I am using are Grandstream GXV3662_HD. On their website they say they have full Onvif conformance. Has anyone had any dealings with this brand?

No to my knowledge. If the camera is Onvif, you will need to make sure that is onvif 2.0 compatible. our NVRs are onvif 2.0 compatible.

I'm having the same issue with a Grandstream GXV3672_FHD_36 (specs attached). It found the camera right away and it records fine all the time but I can't get the Motion Detection to work. Motion detection is enabled on the camera and on the NVR. I'm using the NBR-ELT-16.

That's normal with Onvif cameras. Not every third party camera functions will work with any unit from different brands. That's the nature of Onvif

Hello, you can try going to the cameras manufacturer website and try downloading and upgrading to the latest firmware, our techpro security support team have resolved many onvif camera issues this way (all features may not be compatible), you can check the cameras platform setting thought the cameras web service interface, make sure it's set to Onvif.

I ended up returning the Grandstream cameras and ordered cameras from your site. I was able to get the new cameras to work but only by setting the motion detection area up through the camera's web interface. I can't control the Motion Detection settings through the NVR. I purchased (2) IPOB-TP2MPIR50-W Cameras and (1) IPOB-TP2MPIR150L2812-B and I am using the NVR-ELT-16. Is there a setting I can change on the cameras to allow me to control them through the NVR?

Hello, 

 

No, There is no Onvif camera that will allow you to do that from the web interface. Motion detection needs to be configured from the camera itself before connected to the NVR like stated on our site
