The context used to make this work on my CentOS 7 host is:
They are small for an IR dome and work well in specific situations. The IR illuminators are bright and have good coverage. As a twist, I tested both their 2. It comes with a weatherproof connector should you need it.
In order to take advantage of it, you need to cut the Ethernet plug, slip the weatherproof connector through and then crimp on a new RJ45 plug. Unlike the bullet, aiming this camera is not easy.
First to note is that this is a 2-axis dome. This means the lens can only tilt up down and pan side to side. In theory, you can surface mount it on a wall, but you would lose the ability to pan because as you pan the image will tilt. Hikvision does make a 3-axis dome that I will cover soon in another article.
If you want to mount the camera on a wall, I would strongly suggest the wall mount made specifically for this camera and looks like this. This is what the web interface looks like when you first log in.
For example, if you chose P, then you have to click on The default is sort of in between. As with the bullet, the camera comes with a fixed IP address at Makes it easier to track which ports go with which camera. But most importantly, this is where you set the resolution, frame rate, bit rate and such.
One bit of advice is WDR is not free. Events is where you set in-camera motion detection. The reason for this is if you have NVR software, for example Milestone XProtect that leverages in-camera motion detection or if you want to use the NFS method I mentioned in a previous article.
You click the draw area button to draw the area you want to detect motion detection in. It can be multiple sets of boxes, in my example, I just drew one large box. You have to select trigger channel to enable it and set the arming schedule by clicking Edit to change it.
This has worked well for me but some have had issues. Word is that the next major firmware release, 5. After setting events and storage you think it should all work, but one more step. There are choices for Alarm, but this model does not come equipped with alarm inputs.
Now onto the images. I mounted the camera with the 2.
As before, you can click on the image to see the full size, 3 megapixel image straight from the camera.May 06, · CIFS via Samba is not currently supported in the beta. The host computer is Vista 32bit, the network storage is ReadyNAS and regular share on Windows server There is no Samba or Linux involved, no need to even look into that direction.
Both network shares were easy to mount, fully accessible from host computer, read/write access. How can i mount a windows share in read-write mode from my linux system. Oct 19, · To get rutadeltambor.com working, I had to explicitly add my user to Homes, Departments, and MyDepartment with read & traverse permissions.
Once I do this, I can mount using rutadeltambor.com either directly to the server or using the DFS share point.
Jul 11, · I have 2 users, 1 with read/write permission, and 1 with just read permission, and the mount works flawlessly with both users.
However, when I try to mount it via the command line (which is desirable because I eventually want to permanently mount it via fstab later), it just won't work. This is my current setup for my two Ubuntu (Maverick Meerkat) boxes.
One shares a read/write folder to the other. This is my setup. I think the key to this is having the same username on both computers having access to the files. Mount a network share in Linux doesn’t have to be a nightmare, as you saw above we are able to follow an organized process.
I like it when there is minimal configuration files changes involved and the commands are easy to understand, as it was in the case for this tutorial.
