    dahua cam's capture thieves breaking in vehicles.

    The blurriness is due to the slow shutter. The slow shutter is due to the low light / sensitivity to low light of the camera. You could increase the shutter but it would result in a darker picture, or you could increase the light to maintain the brightness but allow a faster shutter, or you...

    Looking for unique solution for dash cam

    You might have to look for commercial solutions such as those used by the police. However, they are very expensive and usually way behind the consumer products in picture quality. Even then, I'm not sure if you could split the cable as they usually come as a complete solution and not just a...

    I need ideas, on where to install a camera at the entrance

    Personally I'd say on a CCTV mounting bracket it screams CCTV. If you want to be covert, you need to mount it like a bird house would normally be mounted.

    Stealth Plates?

    That's going to depend on the plate system used. Many of the stealth plates don't restrict viewing angles because it would be obvious to authorities and instead rely on highly reflective surfaces to try to blind a speed camera with a reflection of it's own flash. With modern video editing tools...

    hmm...fishy. exploit.http.empireHTTPListener detected. Or maybe not fishy. UI3

    I'm not sure whose reports you're looking at but Bitdefender is still near the top on the AV-Test Org website, a German Testing Organisation, with Defender in 13th position when sorted by Protection https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/ I agree in the past Bitdefender was prone to...

    I need ideas, on where to install a camera at the entrance

    You could try putting a some spots of hot glue on the base between the base spanning the base and ball. Not sure if have a gun or have used hot glue before. A great aspect of hot glue is so far as I can tell, it's simply a thermoset plastic, and as such once set becomes hard and very easy to...

    hmm...fishy. exploit.http.empireHTTPListener detected. Or maybe not fishy. UI3

    Bitdefender is one of the best for virus detection but as with anything that's sensitive it can be prone to false alarms. That said I've not had one for a long time on mine. Last time was when installing a legitimate program. This does sound a bit like a generic code identification which is what...

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    From those graphs it looks as if for remote viewing it's not encoding using the GPU. Your CPU spikes but the GPU usage is almost non existent.

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    Nice testing thread. Missed that one. Certainly though, a 3950x is overkill. It would be a bit ridiculous to buy a $700+ CPU to run CCTV. That's why it's interesting to know if the 3400G is up to the job considering it's price is only $129 and it's supposed to be more powerful graphically than...

    Good result.

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    Ryzen 4 desktop is expected out at the latter end of this year. Interesting to note though that you 2200G (integrated graphics?) is encoding 8 x 8mp cameras at only 25%. Would be interested to see more reports of this make the BI database as maybe Intel is no longer necessary for BI. The...

    My camera install car got robbed

    I've probably said it before, but personally I'm a great fan of keeping the PIR and lamp separate as it makes for easier and cheaper replacement.

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    Just wondering, how does it encode without Quicksync? I've recently thought about AMD simply because the Ryzen 3's are very powerful and with Ryzen 4 on the horizon, I reckon the end of this year will see them in the bargain bucket price range where Ryzen 2 is now. (Edited as mistakenly said...
