    Bandwidth and Camera Type Questions

    I will be using 16 4MP cameras - probably IPC-HDW5431R-ZE. I want to be sure the total bandwidth will not exceed the capacity of a NVR5216-16P-4KS2 which I think is 320 Mbps. I looked on Dahua's web site for the camera specs but it is a bit confusing. Can someone let me know if I will be ok...

    IPC-HDW5431R-Z vs. IPC-HDW5231R-Z

    It's a range where members can swipe an access card and come in and shoot 24/7. Some members (or guests) are either very poor shooters or they are deliberately shooting recklessly. So we just need to see that. The cameras will be mounted on the ceiling about 7 - 10 ft behind the shooter. Each...

    IPC-HDW5431R-Z vs. IPC-HDW5231R-Z

    It's an indoor gun range. From 35 ft I would like to see the bullet holes in a paper target. If not 22 caliber, then at least 38. I'm not sure where I would set the optical zoom but the FOV would probably be between 45° and 60°. So maybe a focal length of 8mm?

    IPC-HDW5431R-Z vs. IPC-HDW5231R-Z

    So the only thing I keep hearing is that the 4MP version is bad in low light conditions. My application is indoors with good lighting. I need good detail. Am I better off with the IPC-HDW5431R-Z?

    SmartPSS Question

    I am new to this world. Our club will have 2 or 3 members who will have access to the NVR. Will one purchase of SmartPSS allow three people to install it on their PC or does each person have to buy it? Oh wait - it's free, isn't it?!?! Duh! I confused it with BI.

    NVR vs BI

    I'm leaning toward the NVR. You can basically install it and forget it. No OS upgrades to worry about. I'm getting the feeling that many on this forum enjoy the ongoing interaction with the products that they purchase. As much as I am also that kind of person, in this instance I need to keep the...

    NVR vs BI

    This installation at my club will need to go weeks without any intervention. Can you configure a PC to reboot and load the program by itself if power is lost longer than a UPS can provide?

    NVR vs BI

    I am tasked with installing a 16 camera system for my club. I will be going exclusively with IPC-HDW5231R-Z cameras (or maybe the ZE's), no legacy analog. I originally thought that I would go the NVR route with the NCR5216_5232-16p-4ks2. But now I'm rethinking a PC based sytem with BI. My past...

    2017 Dahua Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-ZE), ePoE, NEW!

    Pardon a newbee. So you can't change the zoom/field of view while watching from the NVR or remotely?

    Hi Andy, I am looking to purchase a 16 camera system for my club. The IPC-HDW5231R-Z looks good. I want to go with a NVR. POE and 2 drive bays is a must. I also need to have remote access and apps available for viewing by Android or Apple phones. Please contact me. Gary
