    Monitor for significant changes in image and send alert

    Instead of a camera watching a control panel why not monitor the water temp directly with a wireless thermometer? I'm not familiar with a specific model, but here's one; many others on the market. https://www.amazon.com/Crosse-Wireless-926-251031-HT-Monitor-Accessory/dp/B0081URKJU

    Review-OEM 4mp AI Cam IPC-T5442TM-AS Starlight+

    Did the .10 firmware update. Big plus for me is that the cam's email notifications now work! I never could get the cam to connect to either Yahoo or Gmail's smtp servers prior to this update. Big negative: Cam's pw field will not accept a Win paste command. I have a long random pw and must...

    Review-OEM 4mp AI Cam IPC-T5442TM-AS Starlight+

    After a firmware upgrade I see that it's recommended to do a camera reset. Does a restore to factory default through the cam's webpage suffice, or would I have to get on a ladder, open up the camera and then hold the reset button (next to the SD card slot) down? After that I would have to...

    New Mini PTZ now with 4x zoom SD1A404XB-GNR

    I'd like to get this mini ptz for my backyard, but I'm unclear as to what parts I would need to mount it. Dahua does not list a ceiling junction box model on this cam's spec sheet. DH-SD1A404XB-GNR PTZ data sheet My mounting location would be on the soffit shown here, just to the right of the...

    Review-Dahua IPC-K35A 3mp Cube Camera

    Darn, I had forgotten that this is only available with a 2.8 lens. I need a POE indoor cam with an 80 deg HFOV. Otherwise I' would've purchased this.

    Review-Dahua IPC-K35A 3mp Cube Camera

    Is it possible to pull the front casing off of the camera so that it would be easier to paint? The white color would make the camera really stick out when sitting on my dark wood-stained end table.

    Review-Dahua IPC-HFW1831C-PIR 4k Mini Bullet

    Aristobrat, thanks for the info.. I downloaded exarkun's 10.0 version and my cam upgraded with no issues. After extracting the file there was a text file which did list our model camera, so I felt secure proceeding. Thanks again to both of you.

    Review-Dahua IPC-HFW1831C-PIR 4k Mini Bullet

    I also would like a confirmation of the correct firmware for this camera, model # IPC-HFW1831C IPC-HX2X3X firmware listed a couple of times in this string seems odd to me as the file name does not match up in any way with our camera model number. The ending string of numbers do match up...

    IPC-HFW1831C-PIR 8MP WDR IR Mini Bullet Network Camera / Active Deterrence

    The problem wasn't getting the card properly seated. I wasn't able to get the SD card inserted even to the halfway point without it feeling jammed in improperly. Normally a card will slide in smoothly after it's just lined up at the proper angle. After trying a few times over a few days I...

    IPC-HFW1831C-PIR 8MP WDR IR Mini Bullet Network Camera / Active Deterrence

    Has anyone been able to get a micro SD card inserted into this camera? I cannot get it to slide in easily, and am afraid of forcing it and getting it jammed. Looking at the cam from the rear, the manual indicates the notched side should be on the right side when inserting, while the embossed...

    Indoor kitchen camera?

    Thanks to all for your responses. Great forum here! And I may purchase both cams mentioned. I will purchase the IPC-HFW1831C-PIR camera for my kitchen area. I also need another interior camera that sits pointing towards my front door, but this cam would need to be wifi. And I want an ~80deg...

    Indoor kitchen camera?

    I've been reading through this site over the past month or so. Plenty of info on outdoor cameras, but very little regarding indoor ones. I want to start with purchasing an indoor camera, this summer I'll look to add a few outdoor models when and if I can get the network cable run. Below is a...
