Hi Andy, in your opinion what is the best sub $150 camera for low light environments for capturing cars/people at a distance of 20 to 30 feet away? They will be mounted outdoors about 12 feet high. There are so many models its confusing, so im asking your help, thank you.
I'm looking to buy my first IP Cam. After long reading on the internet and on this forum, I've decided on the IPC-T2431T-AS to begin with, with a 3,6mm focal.
I've read that you are an excellent seller of this brand; do you have a quote and avalaibility for shipping to France?
Looking at getting a SD49225XA-HNR for its AutoTracking but am unsure if it works or not. I will be using it with BlueIris and reading the review thread for the camera at Review - Dahua SD49225XA-HNR 2MP 25x Starlight + IR PTZ AI Camera with Deep IVS & SMD Plus Wildcat_1 says that you need to have IE open with the GUI going for the AI Live tracking to work. Is this true and the Auto Tracking will not work when the camera is used with BlueIris ?
I have had a SD49225T-HN for a couple of years (that I got from you) and it works great. If the same camera had Auto Tracking of people i'd be happy to buy one.
Is it possible that the camera I have already could be firmware upgraded and support Auto Tracking of people ?
The new one is for a different site, but I'd like to be able to upgrade my one if it is possible.
I'm looking to upgrade my existing outdoor camera setup (7 x LongSe POE 4MP - nice picture in daylight but not very good at night, even with IR illuminators). I'd be grateful for your recommendation for replacement cameras as indicated below, along with the cost and shipping to the UK (including import duty/VAT if appropriate).
[I've read the notes and the many reviews!]
at least 4 MegaPixels
"starlight" or equivalent low light sensor (1/1.8")
all POE connected
all connected to a Blueiris system
location in the UK
Top of the house (under the eaves) - bullet or turret cameras
2 x 3.6mm or 2 x 2.8-12mm varifocal + junction box (conduit connection)
1 x 6mm or 1 x 2.8-12mm varifocal + junction box (conduit connection)
(I currently have bullets because they are more of a visible deterrent but could live with turrets.)
Not new to site but new to larger installs, So I used to get cams from a guy local to me here in PA, he closed down and I have been getting some requests for cams with some of the local bars/other's around me most of my other installs have been at peoples homes. This current client is being picky and does not like what I have shown him so I figured I reach out to you.
What cams do you have that are PTZ with POE or do you have a site that lists what you have for ease of view.
Hi Andy, I'm looking to get a good 2nd front yard camera. I recently bought a IPC-HDW5231R-ZE IP Camera 2MP Starlight WDR IR Eyeball Starlight at amazon and fell in love with it the moment I set it up and now I'm looking to get a 2nd one to cover the rest of the front home. I'm looking for something a bit cheaper that's at least a little under 120$USD price range and was thinking about the IPC-HDW2231RP-ZS Starlight Camera-Varifocal. Is there any deals I can get for this?
Hi Andy Purchased a few HDW 5831R-ZE and a 5231 from you. They work perfectly. I downloaded what I thought was a newer version of Dahua Config Tool. Seems it was the same one and all it did was knock out my passwords. I still have cameras up and running just cannot acess them through Config Tool. Do you know of a way to reset the passwords?I can try reset button,just dont know if that is an option. have 3 cameras to a generic 8P switch to router to Synology 718 + . If it is not a simple answer I`ll try the forum but they tend to get technical . Regards Thomas
Hi Andy! Received your COVID19 package, bit later than anticipated, but we will enjoy it! Thanks you for sharing! We indeed are under the same sky, even from the other side of the world. Keep up the good work!
Greetings from Belgium,
Hey there Andy! New to the board and looking at camera's for a home security system. On the reviews that @Wildcat_1 posted, I see the OEM IPC-B5442E-ZE and want to purchase one for testing before I purchase the remaining 4, but when I followed their link to AliExpress it was no longer available for sale. After further reading the replies and other posts, I did come across the IPC-B5442E-Z4E that was being compared to it.
Is there a replacement I can buy for the IPC-B5442E-ZE or should I go with the IPC-B5442E-Z4E as the posts were outlining that it would recognize license plates better (I am really looking for the ability to capture a picture / video) of the face in case I have to turn it over to the police.
I got 2x IPC-HDW2231R-ZS PAL
1x IPC-HDW4231EM-AS 2.8mm PAL
from you only
I updated firmware on all once via files, now the NVR is saying update available, is it safe to update the firmware via the GUI?
Also the is IPC-HDW2231R-ZS is V2.800.0000013.0.R, Build Date: 2019-12-02 , is there anything never?
Hello there Andy
My name is Duncan and I would like to tap into your expertise. I am relatively new to the world of surveillance systems but I will give you a rundown of my system so far. I have a synology NAS with the latest ss installed without smart analysis, DS 415+. I have RJ45 run to various parts of the house powered by POE+ (802.3at Netgear switch). I have no audio wiring to the camera positions so audio over ethernet is my only option
What I am after is a POE IP camera that has audio alarm (and strobe ideally) inherent to the camera so another SS license is not required for an IP siren. Looking for 7 meter vertical coverage, 5 meter depth, 3 meter height, so from what I can make out that is probably a 1/3" sensor, lens FL of 3.4? I am looking to purchase 2 cameras.
Can you recommend a few options with price to NZ please? If you need more info just ask.
