    outdoor wall mount for a IP8M-T2599EW ?

    The Dahua PFB204W has four screw holes at 68.5mm. Maybe that's close enough.

    Change static IP

    If you are desperate, try the arp command (search google for how to use arp for change IP address). I haven't done it since the 1990's, so don't ask me for details. Your cameras may have the ability disabled. I would buy new cameras.

    Can a patch panel be used.

    A bad port is a remote possibility. Try repunching the six that are giving problems. Are you using a punch-down tool and solid cable?

    A Sign of the Times

    I had to sign for my new B5442E-Z4E this week from DHL. Seems like they'd skip that requirement now. I did wash my hands before unpacking the goodies, then washed them again after throwing the wrapping away.

    It would help if you could post pictures of your house that show the corners, cable connection points, roof line, etc.

    Dahua IPC-HDW2231R-ZS dead? from just from connecting and disconnecting during placement

    Mine takes a long time to respond whenever I connect it. I started moving it around this month to test in various locations, and every time I plug it in, it takes a long time to respond. I got used to it and find something else to do for awhile. I don't know how long it takes to come to life...

    What's the name of this piece and where can you buy extras?

    The Dahua docs say the PFA130E has 3/4" pipe threads. You probably want the 3/4" size fitting mentioned in other posts. 3/4" conduit has an outside diameter close to one inch. So, if you measured the hole, you probably came up with 1".

    How to view Dahua cameras without browser plugins

    On my Windows 10 notebook, I have to set the display scaling to 100%. If set to 125% (recommended by my display) some of my Dahua screens overlay like your example.

    Mini 0806 questions

    I use the CPL filter with my Mini 0806. It almost eliminates glare. I think it's worth it. I don't connect the camera to my computer, nor am I interested in parking mode, so I can't address those issues.
