    DS-2DE4A425IW-DE

    I just received my new DS-2DE4A425IW-DE. Can you tell me what settings (or camera choice) you used to add this camera to Blue Iris? I just want to get the most benefit out of this new camera and want to start out with the best setting. Thanks for any tips you can offer!

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    As I mentioned above, I ordered the unbranded version of the DS-2DE4A425IW-DE on the evening of Nov, 7th. It actually arrived yesterday on morning of Nov. 11th. This was less than 4 full days... from China. I could not believe my eyes when I was that DHL truck coming up my driveway! Now I have...

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    These guys have been great thus far. The camera price was a bit more though, $395 US, non branded. https://monitech.m.en.alibaba.com?tracelog=alisupplier_sns_minisite

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    I just ordered the same one last night so the race is on! Your guy was out of stock but I found another seller on Alibaba. I'll let you know how it goes.

    You gotta see this Mini 4MP Auto-Tracking PTZ

    How quiet or loud are the servos in this DS-2DE4A425IW-DE camera? I don't want to have one bolted to the side of my home set for Smart Tracking keeping me up at night if it is one of the noisier ones. Can anyone compare it to a comparable Dahua Auto Tracking unit?

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    Sorka: I might give this DS-2DE4A425IW-DE 4mp one a try! How is it working out for you so far? Can you (or anyone else) attest to how loud or how quiet the servos are on this camera, especially compared to comparable Dahua models? I don't want this thing keeping me up at night with it bolted...

    I'm glad you're all setup. My concern for noise is so critical that I'm going to have to hold off until I can find a video clip with audio demonstrating how loud this camera is. Dude, my man-cave is done.... But I'm probably a lot older than you.

    tibimakai: There are a few things that you could do to eliminate the vibrations from transferring to your home. I am going to be faced with this very same situation so here are some things to consider: The PVC pipe which appears to be protecting your wire could easily be replaced with an...

    Good idea. I've done this sort of thing in the past when isolating vibration for camera mounts in helicopters for vibration but it would work for sound too as you know. Silicone is better than rubber for absorbing sound or vibration. Thanks.

    ... but what's the fun of having such a cool camera if you can't cuddle with it at night? Okay, I'll buy one but it will probably end up in my back yard. BUT, I have elk, BABY elk, so it will get a good workout! I'll post some shots. Thanks again for weighing in.

    Dahua SD59225U-HNI

    Yikes! I just ran across this video of the sounds made by the Dahua SD49225T-HN. This is like 3CPO :) This might be a real deal breaker for my application. For manual PTZ movement it wouldn't matter but if you had your Auto-tracking active and had this camera anywhere near where you sleep it...

    Okay, thanks for clarifying this. The rubber mount for isolation is a good idea. I have some silicone suspension mounts that might work for this.

    Dahua SD59225U-HNI

    oops. I just looked at your link. It seems to show the same mount that I just sent to you. Is this the one that you didn't like? One last quetion: Is this camera noisy? I've seen comments about it being noisy in that you can hear all of the little servos with each and every movement. The...
