To find your system’s IP address go to Main Menu>Maintenance>System Info>Network. The IPv4 Address at the top is your local IP. If your IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 188.8.131.52, this means your system is offline. There are a few causes from this, but usually it’s a bad ethernet cable or the cable is not plugged in properly to either the DVR or Router. If those are checked to be correct, try restarting your router by unplugging it for a minute and restarting the DVR.

Do You Need Different Types of Cameras for Residential and Business Settings?
The answer is a complicated one. Most businesses require more surveillance cameras, and hence a higher channel system, but the cameras employed by both businesses and homeowners vary quite a bit. The truth is that the setting, lighting, and functionality matter much more than whether the place you are securing is a retail store, warehouse, or home. We offer anything you might need for the right custom combination, from a HD IP surveillance camera, to a wifi doorbell camera, to a high profile bullet camera designed to deter criminals. Call us at 626-566-7550 and let us help build a custom package just right for your needs.
