How to Upgrade Uniview Devices

How to Upgrade Uniview NVR and IP Cameras

We are frequently asked “How do I upgrade my Uniview NVR” (or IP Camera). With Uniview Devices, the process is relatively simple and straight forward. If you are ready to upgrade one of your IP Cameras or a Uniview NVR, you can follow the steps below, or just give us a call! We love to talk to people about Uniview!

 

Notes on How to Upgrade Uniview Devices:

  • Make sure you use the correct upgrade file for you device. The upgrade file is a ZIP file and must include all the necessary files. Otherwise, unexpected results may occur.
  • Make sure power is not interrupted during upgrade. A power failure during system upgrade may cause startup failure. Use an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) if necessary. The device will restart after the upgrade is completed.
  • When upgrade the IPC, the upgrade boot program function is disabled by default, and only the camera will be upgraded to the latest version. If enabled, both the camera and the boot program will be upgraded.

How to Upgrade Uniview IP Cameras

1. Click: Setup > System > Maintenance.

2. Under Software Upgrade, click Browse and select the correct upgrade file.

3. Click Upgrade and then confirm to start. The camera will restart automatically after the upgrade is completed. Some devices support boot program upgrade. To upgrade, select Upgrade Boot Program.

4. You may click Detect to check for new versions available to cloud upgrade.

 

How to Upgrade your Uniview NVR

Upgrade the NVR under Maintain > Upgrade locally (using an upgrade file saved in a USB storage device) or by cloud (through a cloud server).

To upgrade by cloud, ensure that the NVR is connected to a fully functional DNS server (configured under System > Network > Basic), and click Check to see whether a newer version is available. The time that a cloud upgrade takes is affected by network connection status.

What is Cat8 Cable?

Cat8-Blue

What is Cat8 Cable? For the past two decades, people have challenged the use of Ethernet and Network Cabling. It was believed by some that Ethernet would soon be a thing of the past. Yet, even after Google’s attempts with fiber optics, Ethernet remained the standard for home and commercial networks.

 

Category Cabling

Throughout the years, Ethernet has developed and changed. Every so often new iterations would arise. The various “Cat” designations have gone from Cat5e to Cat6 and Cat6a, and then Cat7 in previous years. But now, we have Cat8 Cables. Cat8 has caused a lot of excitement with IT Network Technicians, Data Centers and now even installers who work in the field of Video/Audio Surveillance. With Cat8, many iterations were surpassed making Cat8 the Ethernet cable one would select to go further into the future. Although this is particularly beneficial in larger applications such as Data Centers, many enthusiastic tech savvy business owners and even gamers have already looked at Cat8 for their networks.

Comparisons:

Just to review the differences between all “the Cats” we can see why Cat8 is taking us on a forward path to faster and more efficient data transfer and recovery. Cat5 operates at 100 MHz and transfers data at speeds up to 1000 Mbps. Cat6 works at 250 MHz and can get up to 1 Gbps. Cat7 is impressive with 600 MHz and 10 Gbps rates. These are the numbers on each Category Cable that have been tested and vetted.* Yet Cat8 uses 2000 Mhz signals to move data from 25 Gbps (Cat8.1) to 40 Gbps (Cat8.2). This is exponentially higher than each iteration of Ethernet cable previously. 

 

Cat8 comparison

 

So, why is Cat5 slower? First of all, it’s cheaper. The production of Cat5 requires less twists and shielding. Cat5 is therefore less expensive to produce. With fewer twists in the cable pairs it becomes increasingly difficult to shield higher frequencies, interference and crosstalk.

So, if it’s the twists and shielding we need to get higher frequencies, the production costs makes Cat7 and Cat8 more expensive. But the raw materials made Cat7 much more expensive. Cat7 often uses gold plates for shielding. Cat8 is less expensive than Cat7. One of the most popular and trusted types of shielding for Cat8 is S/FTP. This is a process that insures each pair shielded is foil wrapped and then a 4-pare shield is around the group of wires. The raw material is copper, much less expensive than gold.

 

 

Cat8 Visual

 

 

Cat8 Future

With the exponentially higher Mhz signals Cat8 will “Future Proof” your home or business. And with all the wrapping and shielding Cat8 still has the physical appearance of the lower category cables, but is significantly thicker. Cat8 uses the 8-pin modular (RJ45) connector, the same used in previous versions. This means that Cat8 (Cat-8, Category 8) Cables are backwards compatible with Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a and Cat7 cabling.

Power Requirements?

What particularly attractive about Cat8 is it does not require more power. The 25GBASE-T/40GBASE-T equiptment is designed to operate over shorter distances up to a maximum of 30 meters. The power needed to transmit a signal 30 meters at 40 Gb/s is approximately the same as the power needed for 10GBASE-Tn transmission for distances up to 100 meters. There are always contributing factors to deciding which Network Cabling will work best for your application. However, if you are looking for Category Cables that will stand up to the requirements of the future, CAT8 is a perfect option!

UL and C-UL Classifications for Hazardous Locations, North America

Explosion Proof Camera

 

Here is a great article from the UL website in regards to UL and C-UL Classifications for Hazardous Locations, that is helpful.

Read the full article on UL’s site here: UL and C-UL Classifications, Hazardous, NA  (UL.COM Hazardous-Locations)

Source:  www.ul.com

Author:  UL, LLC.

 

UL and C-UL Certification for North America

UL and C-UL Classifications for Hazardous Locations

Gain a better understanding of the definition of a Hazardous Location and area classification as well as the UL and C-UL Certification for North America.

What is a Hazardous Location?

Location where explosion or fire hazards exist due to the presence of flammable gases, flammable or combustible liquid-produced vapors, combustible dusts, or ignitable fibers or flyings.

How are Hazardous Areas Classified?

Area Classification – Hazardous Locations are classified by the likelihood of an ignitable concentration of combustible material being present. There are two systems in place, including the traditional North American Division system as well as the alternative Zone system. See below for further details:

DIVISION SYSTEM (NEC ARTICLE 500 THROUGH 503/CEC SECTION 18)

Sample Marking:

  • Divisions
    • Division 1 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produces vapors can exist under normal operating conditions.
    • Division 2 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produces vapors are not likely to exist under normal operating conditions.
  • Class – Materials are divided by type:
    • Class I – Flammable gases, flammable liquid produced vapors, and combustible liquid produced vapors
    • Class II – Combustible dusts
    • Class III – Ignitable fibers / flyings
  • Groups – Materials are further divided into Groups for Class I, Divisions 1 and 2:
    • A – Acetylene
    • B – Hydrogen
    • C – Ethylene
    • D – Propane
  • Groups – Materials are further divided into Groups for Class II, Division 1 and 2:
    • E – Metal Dusts (Div. 1 only)
    • F – Carbonaceous Dusts
    • G – Non-Conductive Dusts (flour, grain, wood, plastic, etc.)

What is the difference between a Class I, Division 1 Location and Class I, Division 2 Location? What about the differences between the other locations?

Class I, Division 1 Location

  • Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors or liquids:
    • can exist under normal operating conditions;
    • may exist frequently because of repair or maintenance operations or leakage; or
    • may exist because of equipment breakdown that simultaneously causes the equipment to become a source of release.

Class I, Division 2 Location

  • Volatile flammable liquids or flammable gases or vapors exist, but are normally confined within closed containers;
  • Ignitable concentrations of gases, vapors or liquids are normally prevented by positive mechanical ventilation; or
  • Adjacent to a Class I, Division 1 location where ignitable concentrations might be occasionally communicated.

Class II, Division 1 Location

  • Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust can exist in the air under normal operating conditions;
  • Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust may exist because of equipment breakdown that simultaneously causes the equipment to become a source of ignition; or
  • Electrically conductive combustible dusts may be present in hazardous quantities.

Class II, Division 2 Location

  • Combustible dust is not normally in the air in ignitable concentrations;
  • Dust accumulations are normally insufficient to interfere with normal operation of electrical equipment;
  • Dust may be in suspension in the air as the result of infrequent malfunction of equipment; or
  • Dust accumulation may be sufficient to interfere with safe dissipation of heat or may be ignitable by abnormal operation.

Class III, Division 1 Location

  • A location in which easily ignitable fibers or materials producing combustible flyings are handled, manufactured or used.

Class III, Division 2 Location

  • A location in which easily ignitable fibers are stored, or handled other than in the process of manufacture.

 

ZONE SYSTEM (NEC ARTICLE 505-506 / CEC SECTION 18)

Sample Marking:

  • Zones
    • Zone 0 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produces vapors are present continuously or for long periods of time under normal operating conditions.
    • Zone 1 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produces vapors are likely to exist under normal operating conditions.
    • Zone 2 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produces vapors are not likely to exist under normal operating conditions.
    • Zone 20 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are present continuously or for long periods of time under normal operating conditions.
    • Zone 21 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are likely to exist occasionally under normal operating conditions.
    • Zone 22 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are not likely to occur under normal operating conditions.
  • Groups – Class I, Zone 0, 1, and 2
    • IIC – Acetylene & Hydrogen
    • IIB + H2 – Hydrogen
    • IIB – Ethylene
    • IIA – Propane
  • Groups – Zone 20, 21, and 22
    • IIIC – Conductive Dust
    • IIIB – Non-Conductive Dust
    • IIIA – Combustible Flyings
  • Electrical Protection Types – Gas Atmospheres
    • “d” – flameproof (for EPL Gb or Mb)
    • “e” – increased safety (for EPL Gb or Mb)

CCTV Data Recovery

CCTV Data Loss and Recovery

Anyone who has been around disk-based storage devices for a while has had an incident where they’ve either lost data, the HDD has been corrupted, or maybe the media has been damaged in some way. The immediate response is usually panic. “That data is lost forever, and I had important footage on there!”. Or, “My building has burnt down, and my DVR is toast. I’ll never be able to tell what happened!!”. To quote the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:don't panic

There’s something to remember about data being erased from a hard drive, and that is that data isn’t really gone when you delete it. Not immediately, at least. Essentially (in very basic terms), the drive is told that the sectors that contained the data are okay to overwrite. So, if you’ve deleted data from your drive, or accidentally formatted it, the best thing to do is keep calm and don’t use that drive. Less time spent in use equals a better chance of recovery. That being said, if data is overwritten, it’s pretty much gone for good. Powering down the unit and calling a recovery specialist is the best first course of action. Also, keep in mind to try to act as quickly as possible, as CCTV hard drives are usually on a constant overwrite mode.

As it turns out, we specialize in CCTV data recovery, and we’re able to recover data from DVRs in most cases. We’ve been successful in recovering data from several DVR hard drives that were in fires, some with damage to the board, formatted drives, and corrupted files. If you ever find yourself in this situation, power down the DVR and give us a call. We’ll give you a quick and honest assessment. Our pricing is fair, and our turn-around times are usually within just a few days, unless there’s physical damage that needs to be repaired. We can help with damaged DVR’s, NVR’s, Hard Drives, SD Cards, IP Network Cameras and More! If you require CCTV data recovery, give us a call.

We love talking to people about data recovery.

Seeing Color in Extremely Low Light Levels with STARVIS!

Starvis Compare

Starvis CCTV Security Cameras

I’ve been in this industry for a while now, and there have been a handful of innovations that have really grabbed my attention. STARVIS, certainly is one of them. For quite some time, a major drawback to to having CCTV cameras in a low-lit area like a restaurant or bar, is that since the light levels are below the IR threshold, cameras stay in IR mode (Black and White) all the time. In IR mode (night vision), you sometimes lose detail that may be important later on, especially color. In a situation where we need detailed images from our CCTV Cameras, like what color shirt someone is wearing, having a Security Camera that can see in color in low light can be very beneficial. In addition, there are unforseen times when something may cause the IR to bounce wrong and ruin a picture. I know it sounds far fetched, but we don’t have CCTV systems because we’re complacent.

Like I had mentioned earlier, Starvis is one of the few new things in CCTV (well… relatively new) that has really grabbed my attention. It allows for very low-light footage to be captured in color. The Starvis Back-Illuminated sensor, made by SONY, is incredibly sensitive, and since its introduction, they’ve improved upon the technology. You may very well be asking yourself what practical application would this have for you. Check out this comparison below and pick which image you would rather use as evidence or as a way of determining what color shirt a person was wearing.

Starvis

With Starvis technology, not only are images captured, but the footage would also have extra information for the police to possibly make an arrest. Can’t see the color of a car when your cameras are in IR mode? What about a home intruder? The ability to be able to show the police exactly what they looked like is something that could be incredibly beneficial. Business owner? Maybe a restaurant or bar? Being able to keep all footage in color would help identify troublemakers should they start making a scene, or worse. Detail is better preserved in color. Beyond capturing detailed evidence, viewing your live CCTV images and recorded footage can be much more productive when in color. Imagine trying to explain to an employee in training: “Hey, when you served that woman with the, well I’m not sure what color hair she had but on my footage it looks…grayish?”

So Starvis Low Light CCTV Security Cameras are quickly becoming popular with Bar’s, Restaurants, Poker Rooms, Internet Cafe’s and a multitude of other business’s that operate in low light conditions. One Internet Cafe owner exclaimed “Wow, it’s great to be able to finally see everything in color, all the time! It always bothered me that when we were closed during the day, everything was in color but as soon as we opened, and the lights went down, my cameras were in black and white.”

Starvis

So you’re with me up to this point, right? I’m sure you’ve asked yourself, “Which cameras are offered by Ellipse Security that have Starvis Capabilities?”. I’m glad you asked. Our STOiC Technology Line of Cameras feature many Starvis Models for your needs. Here is a quick list:

The STH-B3271 with not only StarVis, but an incredible 270 feet of IR range

https://ellipsesecurity.com/product/sth-b3271b/

The STH-D5561W Dome

https://ellipsesecurity.com/product/sth-d5561w/

The variable focus STH-D2100W Indoor Dome (2.8-12mm zoom)

https://ellipsesecurity.com/product/sth-d2100w/

The STH-B3181 with an IR range of 180′ and a 2.8-12mm Variable Foucus lens (also available in charcoal color)

https://ellipsesecurity.com/product/sth-b3181w/

And the author’s personal favorite, the STH-B2061W. Quite possibly our most well rounded camera, as well as one of our most popular. SmartIR, Starvis, a compact size, and also has built in audio. This camera could have an article all on its own.

https://ellipsesecurity.com/product/sth-b2061w/

And adding new models every day!

So, now that you’ve seen what Starvis can do for you, and have some ideas as far as practical applications for the home and business, give it a shot for your CCTV camera system. You’ll be able to see the difference for yourself. Still have questions? No problem! Give us a call!
