  • 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.
    Hello Andy,

    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?

    Thanks in advance,
    Hi Andy,
    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.
    Thanks, Col.

    I will be getting 2 more cameras very soon, probably one the same and one of the 4MP 49425XB-HNR ones. OK, no problem, let me know when ready.
    Also I was looking for a PTZ that has wifi and builtin microphone. Something like the 29204UE-GN but with wifi. Do you sell anything like that, or an outdoor version instead ? Outdoor use SD1A203T-GN-W , this one is waterproof one.
    Hi again Andy, I will look for the SD1A203T-GN-W. Thanks.
    ok, I send you a PM.
    Hi Andy

    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.)

    Lower-level - turret cameras
    • 3 x 6mm + wall mount (rear connection)
    • 1 x 3.6mm + wall mount (rear connection)

    Thanks very much ...

    Hi Andy

    Based on my previous post, I think I need these items:
    • 3 x IPC-HFW5442E-ZE bullet 2.8-12mm
    • 3 x PFA121 junction box
    • 3 x IPC-HDW5442TM-AS 6mm lens
    • 1 x IPC-HDW5442TM-AS 3.6mm lens
    • 4 x PFB204W wall bracket
    Grateful for a quote for shipping to the UK please.

    Thanks very much ...

    looks like you have it in your ali express store, but I'd rather buy direct through your paypal
    Hi Andy - Hope all is well in HK
    I'm looking for this bullet cam, model IPC-HFW3241E-Z - Is this available ? I'll follow up with an email if it is.. Thanks
    Hi Andy,

    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.

    Thanks much stay safe.
    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?
    Bit cheaper one, use IPC-T2231T-ZS, this one is the new one replace the old one IPC-HDW2231R-ZS.
    Oh nice, I completely missed the section about the change in models. I'm completely new to this site but is there a difference in where I make my purchase from? Last time I just blindly went with amazon prices for my first camera purchase and found out later that I could get it cheaper here so was just wondering where I can get a better deal on them.
    Aha, no big differece, but new one is better :D
    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
    G'day Andy, looking into the IPC-HDW3541T-ZAS cam. Can I please get a price including postage on this cam to postcode 3216 in Australia please.
    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 look forward to your reply!

    IPC-B5442E-Z4E this one works better for your place. Has powerful lens.
    Hey there Andy! I did receive the Camera, thank you! I wanted to let you know I have not tested it yet as my POE switch has not come in and was back ordered. As soon as I test it I will post on IPCAMTALK.

    Thanks Again!
    I got
    2x IPC-HDW2231R-ZS PAL
    1x IPC-HDW4231EM-AS 2.8mm PAL
    1x NVR4108-4KS2
    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.
    Hi Andy,

    Can you please let me know where I can buy this camera: "Dahua SD8A840WA-HNF 4K AI Starlight 8MP 40x PTZ ", other than on ebay.
