Is there a app for my computer to be able to monitor my Sannce DVR?


Computers don't use apps that is android cell phones and tablets. And no that would not be available as standard loaded programs, you would need to see if it is available at the manufacturer's website.

How to reset my pass word on my Samsung Security Video System SDH-B74041


For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321. If it hasn't been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR. The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness. If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password. The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR. If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #1
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #2
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #3 This reset will work on Android based DVRs only. All steps are performed on the device itself.
  1. Turn the device Off
    Wait 2 minutes
    Press and hold the following buttons
    • POWER,
    • HOME
    • VOLUME UP
  2. The unit should power on. Once it does, you can release power.
  3. Use the volume UP and Down buttons to select "Wipe/Factory Reset" from the recovery menu.
  4. Activate the reset using the HOME button.
    When the DVR goes through it's setup again, it will be at factory defaults. The password will be 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #4 This reset will work on SDR models. It may also work on other models.
  1. With just the cameras showing, press the following in quick succession using the remote:
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Menu
    • Enter
  2. Make sure you press them quickly, one after the other. If it doesn't work the first time, try doing it several times. It can take many tries to get the timing right. If/when it works, you should get a screen that gives you the option to reset.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #5 This reset will work on SDR models where procedure #4 failed. It may also work on other models.
  1. Press the DVR Button to place the system in DVR Mode
  2. Press:
    • Freeze
    • View
    • Return
As with Procedure #4, you may need to press Freeze, View, and Return in in quick succession a few times to get it to work. The timing can be tricky.
These reset procedures cover many Samsung Security DVRs, but not all. I will add reset procedures to this article as they become available to me. By design, Security DVRs are made to be secure, and not all of them can be reset by the consumer. If you have an urgent need related to your Samsung Security DVR, you should contact Samsung directly at their support page Samsung Support, or by calling: 877-349-3149. For less urgent matters, you can email them directly at Email Samsung Support. Support is available 7 days a week, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm EST.

How to hard wire the power supply for a 2.4 ghz wireless camera model 49-2535


Warning: not only would this void the manufacturer's warranty but it could also damage or destroy the product; & you should take or use the necessary precautions to avoid electric shock or any other health risks. Since the AC power cord plugs into the back of the camera, hardwiring a power cord would require unit disassembly & replacing the manufacturer's intended power cord connection with the same power cord or one rated with the same specifications at your own risk to cut off the camera plug-in, to separate the wires, & to anchor these wires to the power jack wires of the same polarity. This could require the use of a multimeter & the use of a plastic plug anchor at the border of the hole leading into the back of the unit. The plastic anchor would serve to further secure the cord to the unit & to reduce unintended entry of moisture, dust, debris, & so forth. Take further precautions if you intend to solder the power cable to the associated wires, & secure the wires at the connections, isolating each new connection with electrical tape, Plasti-Coat, or the equivalent.

I own a dance studio? How do parents watch their ballerina from a TV in the stents Louge?


A couple of options depending on your situation. If the lounge has a smartTV, one that can access the Internet, your simplest would be to purchase a wireless camera, D-Link is one brand and under $100 at Staples, Costco, Bedt Buy, etc. You would also need access to wireless internet in your studio. You set up the camera with name and password and set up the free hosting via a D-Link website. Once the camera is configured, you log onto the website via the smartTV, put in the password and you can watch the camera feed. This can be set up so parents could even watch from home or Grandma from the care home. All anyone needs is a computer or tablet to access the Internet.
Other options include a wired camera where u run wires from camera to ,TV. all depends on your requirements and DIY capabilities.
