Hi,

1.
I have been banging my head on the wall trying to set up SmartPSS to record on motion. Currently I have one Dahua ip camera successfully connected and showing.

I do NOT have an outside existing NVR. I want to use my PC as the SmartPSS server and its hard drive as the recording location. I am confused as to whether or not I’m supposed to use the “PC-NVR” to that end.

Is there a tutorial on how to set up for recording? I saw the youtube one that shows how to playback, etc, but I can’t even do a “Playback” or “instant playback.” I get “no video found.”

2.
Are all IP cameras sold on Securoty Camera King compatible with SmartPSS?

Thank you,
Bert

1)  Smart PSS PC-NVR is VERY basic and lacks many features for recording since most people buy NVRs.

Here is the Manual: http://www.securitycameraking……#038;ind=2

2)  No.  Onvif cameras do not work with Smart PSS for example.

Since it is recommended that you not use a computer’s main Hard Drive to record the video footage; and since you would have to leave a computer on to do this; why not just buy a 4 channel NVR to record the footage?  Then you can connect Onvif cameras as well, and use Smart PSS to view all of them.  It really is the best option.

Hi,

First you will need to setup the camera to record motion and in fact by default the camera motion option is OFF. You will need to login to the camera and go to Schedule to make sure it is configure motion recording. Then you will need to go to Event>Video Detect and under motion Detect Tab click enable motion. If you don’t have an NVR then you can use PC-NVR from PSS and you need to specify a HDD in your PC to be used as your storage. make sure you DO NOT use the main Drive in your machine for this purpose because the software allocates the space you configure for the recording,

 

Thanks

Yes, you would need to use the PC-NVR part at this point. You need to allocate a disk for the software.. the option is in the software.. and then once that is finished and you have the schedule set up you need to add your PC’s IP address as a device to the Smart PSS software for you to be able to look at the recorded footage. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks.

thanks, jeff.

so if I buy the 4-ch NVR you mention, I can use its own software as seen here (“new recorder interface v3.2), or I can use SmartPSS, or both?

which is better/has more features? The embedded linux recorder interface or SmartPSS.

that little NVR looks like a great deal.

 

thanks,

Bert

Bert,

You can use the Blue Interface if you have a monitor hooked up to the NVR, the Web Service or Smart PSS on a computer.  I like Web Service more for configuration, and Smart PSS more for live viewing and playback.  Sometimes you have to use the right tool for the right job.

We recommend Western Digital Purple hard drives since they are DVR grade.  We sell them and can have it installed for you.  The Tiny NVR is a great deal for 1-4 cameras.  Thanks!

Regards,

Jeff
