I got my hilook NVR and cameras setup, but i can't get the Hikconnect phone app to work. I've got the NVR connected to my router via the LAN port and the IP is configured in the same IP range as the router with default gateway etc.

When i goto platform access the status is showing as offline. Any advice?

Does anyone here run surveillance station on a Synology NAS?

I have just this weekend decided to move all my stuff into the loft to start building out a Cisco lab and it's given me the perfect opportunity to finally install CCTV.

I have a Synology NAS already which is more than up to the job. Plenty of storage etc and can be used with most PoE cameras on the market.

All I need to do is buy the cameras and crack on. Was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with it?

I suppose if I get the cameras anyway, see how it is I can always then get a DVR after the fact...

Yeah got it working . The only thing not working is viewing when I’m. It at home . Think it needs port forwarding setting up on the router

So it works on data, bit not WiFi? Portforwarding isn't necessary with shitconnect, but is recommended

You could create another account with the local IP of the machine, but it needs a static Lan address for this, that would work locally. Sometimes had to do this when portforwarding with routers that don't allow loopback

Never heard of them Andy. We always use HikVision at work. It's very good.

Looks like you've got older cable with BNC so maybe an older style recorder might suit you better. Quality isnt as good obviously but you can get them with all the modern apps.
As above if you have existing BNC cable Hik turbo or dahua cvi 👍
.....or search for hiwatch, basically a cheaper (if that's such a thing) hik. Basically last generation more cost effective solution
Apologies gents, I forgot to thank you for the suggestions. (y) Having had a re-think I have decided to rip the old stuff out (cables and everything) and replace it with a modern setup and a couple more cameras. Cheers :)
