    Review-Dahua IPC-A46 4mp indoor PT cam.

    My A46 stopped working some months ago. Power is there, but the ring is always orange, and I cannot get the device to be re-added via the app. Saw this thread and thought I'd give it another try. No such luck. Am not very fond of cameras which require an app to get going to begin with.

    What feature(s) would you like to see in Blue Iris?

    I wish there were a way to display only those alerts which have been tagged by Sentry.

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Looks like I am dialed in with the night time LPR. Will probably need to make adjustments for sunrise and sunset. Wish the cameras came with 4 time settings! (Day/Night/Dawn and Dusk) I do have Backlight on HLC for 70, and WB for outdoor. IR Light is set at 100% for both far and near. Thanks all!

    Alert push notifications - shows only live feed, not triggered motion

    In the Alerts, I see there's an option to email out an MP4 video with a duration of x seconds. That way, you would get the notification to look in your inbox. In my setup, I have the alert just email me an image, but use from HomeSeer to also send out a notification.

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    Thanks for the responses. My target distance is 150-160 feet. The cars kind of make a curve in the field of view, showing around 25 degrees of the driver side, then straight on (or straight back), then 25 degrees of the passenger side. So it's not unusual to have two separate captures per plate...

    Problems With New HFW5241E-Z12E

    I am about to give up on this camera, after a month of trying to capture plates at night. The previously-purchased HFW5231EZ5 camera has stellar views at night, and its IR beams a bright red glow. This new camera's IR seems pretty weak. So I bought a long-range CMVision 940nm lamp, hoping to add...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E AI Varifocal Bullet

    The optical zoom is managed via the camera's web interface, as well as through Blue Iris' PTZ controls. Is that where you mean "T" and "W" buttons?

    (Solved) BI5, Alerts only lasting anywhere from 5hrs to 3 days before deletion

    Where is the solution? My allocations were in the red, and I went and changed settings on save locations and amounts for various cameras to try to balance between two purple drives, deleted GBs of files, ran and reran the Repair DB a few times. Most of my old clips are gone, and new ones are not...
