Every now and then you may have a situation that arises where your client does not require a large recorder (NVR/DVR).
There is now a variety of Hikvision IP Cameras that can operate as a standalone system with an SD card used for the recording instead of a traditional recorder.
To set this kind of system up you will require a network cable, power supply (either 12VDC or POE injector), an SD Card (up to 128GB) and of course the camera. A PC/laptop will be required for the configuration.
The first step will be to install the SD card into the camera, for our example we will be using a DS-2CD2355FWD-I Turret Camera.
• Remove the outer ring of the camera to expose the locking screw.
• Loosen the locking screw (note this does not need to be fully removed)
