    Computer monitor vs tv + remote viewing

    I tried downloading the demo version of BI last night to my main and accessing from my tv but something is wrong somewhere. The page just hangs and remains white with downloading the image. I'm guessing it's in the settings or maybe the firewall is interfering. Wondering if maybe I have...

    Computer monitor vs tv + remote viewing

    It's a Samsung tv. You can only download thier approved apps and have to use their cut down browser. That said, I can view pages and watch YT etc. I can also successfully connect a pc as an input via HDMI, albeith running a cable might be a bit difficult from another room.

    Computer monitor vs tv + remote viewing

    Thanks for the replies. I will be using a BI PC as a NVR. My intention is either to use the monitor I have as a CTTV monitor (27") or alternatively I have a much larger 32" TV that's going unused in the romm where I may put the pc, locationas yet of undecided. So far as my maint tv is...

    Why can't drivers with good driving etiquette report drivers with bad driving etiquette to the appropriate authorities?

    The problem is once you head donw this road, you find drivers who report people for every little genuine mistake and everyone makes mistakes..... We have this in the UK now with some police forces accepting dashcam footage. Whereas sometimes it might be justified, the problem is some people...

    Computer monitor vs tv + remote viewing

    Someone else just asked this but it's lost buried in another thread and as I also need some answers here, I thought I'd re-ask. 1. Are there any reasons for using a monitor over a tv? 2. Does it affect the choice or make one choice more viable if you're leaving it turned off unless you get an...

    Is this a stuck IR filter problem

    I'm guessing there is. Get a camera that can run forced colour at night. No switch to IR should mean no filter switching. As for mechanical filters, it switches twice a day every day. That's 730 times a year. There's bound to be wear on a mechanical device such as this. Mechanical IR switches...

    What the F***, Crazy Driver Crashes into My Brick Fence

    I think you're better off with bricks than a metal fence. Eitrher will be wrecked if hit and bricks are probably cheaper to replace as with a fence it may pull and extended length of fencing down.

    Where should I put my camera for facial recognition?

    No. Doorbell cameras use fisheye lenses that distort and image. They often use small sensors with poor quality pictures especially at night. You cannot zoom them in as they have a fixed wide fish eye lens. They are poor quality compared to a "proper" camera. Get a proper camera with a wide...

    Sticky Suggestion

    I suggested multirouter setups as that's what some people have posted diagrams of in the past. However, this post illustrates nicely the need for a clear sticky showing the correct or best way to assemble a CCTV network in conjunction with other items on the router such as non cctv pc's or...

    DeepStack Case Study: Performance from CPU to GPU version

    What I was trying to ask is do you run deepstack on every camera if it bogs down on quadro 400 if using more than 6 cameras, or do you run it only on specific cameras eg 2 out of 6 to keep the processing demand low?

    DeepStack Case Study: Performance from CPU to GPU version

    Only just noticed this bit. So do IPCT members just use Deepstack on a single point camera then and use just motion detection on the others? Also, from what I can see, if you want 4gb of memory the only option now is a Quadro P1000 which becomes expensive.

    Which new Intel NUC?

    Yeah Andy needs to feed this back to Dahua as MS have now withdrawn IE and it will be disabled in Windows 11: https://www.theverge.com/2021/6/25/22550714/microsoft-windows-11-internet-explorer-disabled Chrome or Firefox seem to be better bets these days for a supported CCTV browser.
