    Is the SD49225T-HN still worth it? Or are there better alternatives with full PTZ?

    As for low temperature, I've used both cameras in Canada, and we often dip down to - 40c a few times each winter. They've both handled the cold very well.

    Dahua Cam Ultra Low Light Testing

    Thanks for the confirmation, I try to buy good quality testing equipment, just can't afford to spend thousands on it. I hadn't used a lux meter in many years, since I worked for a Plant Growth Chamber company and had to calibrate light levels in the chambers. I can't honestly remember the...

    Dahua Cam Ultra Low Light Testing

    Yes, sorry I forgot that. It is an extech lt300. It hasn't been calibrated, but as long as it's accurate to itself it should be good for my comparisons. It also should give people a rough idea of lighting levels I am testing at.

    Dahua Cam Ultra Low Light Testing

    I've decided to document some testing of a variety of Dahua cams for myself, and I figured I'd share my testing here with everyone as well. I live in a rural area, so ambient lighting is sometimes non-existent in some locations. Low light performance is incredibly important, as some of these...

    IPC-T2431T-AS IPC-T2231T-ZS Molec V2.800.0000000.24.R.201014

    What about an HDW2231R-ZS? I assume that is on a different FW?

    What UPS

    The thing is, what do you do with a self monitored alarm? Are you actually going to get your guns and go out there and confront them? You HAVE to assume they are armed. So you want to ask your neighbours to put themselves in a dangerous situation to protect your property when you aren't at...

    What UPS

    I don't disagree with you at all. Whenever I meet with a new customer I start out by going over the downfalls of camera systems, including how tough it can be to get a good identifying picture of a person. At times I'm sure it seems I'm trying to talk them out of cameras. I also propose a...

    What UPS

    I just measured on Google Maps, the next closest resident is 2.5 Miles away through hills and trees. An alarm will be uncomfortable maybe, but anyone breaking into his cabin knows no one can hear them out there. The closest police department, which is manned by 2 officers I believe, is about...

    What UPS

    No he doesn't, and I know we probably should be starting with that over cameras, but monitored alarm systems have pretty limited value in my area. A self monitored system is about as good as anything out here. He's wanting to actually be able to check on the place visually as well, so for...

    What UPS

    Yes, I have a customer that had a cabin broken into semi-recently. The socketed power meter is on the outside of the house. All the thieves had to do was knock the power meter out of the socket, and power to the cabin was cut. I'm installing a camera system on a UPS, as well as their...
