Advice On Hikvision DS-9632Ni-I8 32-Channel NVR

I have been using the Hikvision iVMS-4200 client and iVMS-4200 Storage Server (I dedicate 1 drive for the Storage Server) on my desktop workstation running 24x7. I'm using 6 Hikvision high end POE cameras on my 1 Gig home network and I event record using the camera analytics (line crossing, intrusion dectection, and motion detection) to trigger recording. Cat 6 cable from all cameras to the network. Performance is very good when my system hasn't crashed.

I am using Win 10 x64 and every couple of days my system has a forced reboot which kills iVMS because it leaves the workstation at the login screen and the iVMS-4200 not operating. Always happens between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM. I've checked "Windows Reliability History' and it tells me nothing except Windows shut down unexpectedly. So, a dedicated NVR looks good.

I contacted Hikvision and for their high end cameras (3 of mine are 4K cameras) they recommended the DS-9632Ni-I8:

Sounds like it will work but I need some advice on using the NVR.

  1. I want to manage the NVR using a web browser. No monitor or keyboard on the NVR-just a stand alone black box like the Synology Diskstation Surveillance Package. (can't use that because it doesn't support my high end Hikvision cameras with the analytics I use). Anybody try this and how does it work.
  2. Is the built in software on the NVR going to allow me to use the camera analytics to trigger event recording?
  3. My current iVMS-4200 storage server (on the workstation) uses a 2TB drive so I don't need much NVR storage (probably get 4TB. I like this one: https://www.123securityproducts.com/ds-9632ni-i8-4tb.html

As long as I can treat the NVR as a stand alone box and login in to manage, playback and live view it from my Desktop I'd be happy. Then I could shut my workstation down at night and, hopefully, get the reliability I seek.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
