Since it’s introduction in Windows Vista, User Account Control has been vastly improved in the latest release of Windows 7 / 8. Most of the time it’s quietly doing it’s work in the background, away and behind the user’s eyes. However improved it has been, it is still not that user-friendly when it comes to surveillance systems . In order to successfully install surveillance system software—whether it’s the main system or remote viewer, it’s best to disable the UAC notifications altogether. Below is a step-by-step guide to disable UAC pop up notification inside Windows 7 / 8.
In this KB, we will go through the process of setting up our new standalone H.264 DVR for (1) Initial Setup, (2) Recording, (3) Playback / Search setup (4) Remote View / Remote Playback (5) Backup to Local PC and USB Flash drive. This guide uses the DVR8024 to demonstrate but the same steps will apply to the 8 and 16 channels as well.
For the times when we have a single Geovision DVR set up for remote viewing, DMMultiview and Remote ViewLog installs and works like it should. However, when we have multiple DVRs (or we have one DVR but have upgraded the Main System’s software multiple times) we may end up with multiple copies of DMMultiview and Remote ViewLog scattered throughout our system. This can sometimes confuse the application launchers and cause an older version to load on our PC instead of loading a new version.
In a previous KB Article, we covered how to remotely view our cameras Live from inside the browser and through an application on our desktop known as DMMultiview. In this KB, we will explore how to view previously recorded videos through the web browser as well as using Geovision’s Remote Viewlog utility. If we have the remote ViewLog ports forwarded as well, we may also playback previously recorded videos through the web.
Once we have our Geovision DVR set up on our Local Area Network, with the WebCam Service enabled, we can access and view the Geovision DVR locally on our network. If we have the ports forwarded on our router, can also access the DVR across the Internet as well. This tutorial will walk us through live viewing from 1 camera up to 32 cameras on a separate PC.
Often times when we want to upgrade our surveillance software from version 8.20 to 8.33, we are plagued with post-install green screens, the dreaded “Can’t Find Key Pro Errors”, or even repeated restarts of the Geovision surveillance system. All of these errors can be remedied by a thorough cleaning of any and all Geovision related softwares on the main PC.
For most of TSM or Geovision based DVRs, the initial installation of any proprietary software usually occurs inside Internet Explorer. Active X Controls and Plugins needs to be enabled in order for the background script to successfully execute the installation software. The following how-to demonstrates the fastest, easiest, and safest method to enabling all the Active X Controls.
