    Cat6 cables to cameras, Cat6 patch cords between Ubiquiti UDM router and Ubiquiti managed switch. Do not think I can boost my network more above that (unless I had dual NIC card out of my USFF so I could have 2 connections into the of right now, just 1 connection). Oh well. NAS is...

    per Cliff Notes, yes...database folder is on local HD. My ALERTS listing delay happens when I log into UI3 anytime on remote computer. Did not happen when I had the mid-tower i7 with local HD. So I assumed some inevitable network congestion going on.

    i may have to re-read some blue iris material. But if alerts are just simply pointers to clips (which are also stored on my NAS), does not BI have to load alert short clips on the left hand side of UI3? that is my delay, on UI3 screen upon logging in. And yep, you are correct. My ALERTS...

    my ALERTS are stored on the NAS (10 GB allowed, after that they get deleted). only "NEW" is stored on local HD. Hmm...only 10 GB. I think I might move ALERTS to my local HD after all

    noted. thanks. so far with 14 cams, my 4770 is handling things aok. but using USFF and Synology NAS is bugging me with the alerts delay showing up (sometimes upto 30 seconds). not critical but does give me reason to swap over to SFF with internal HD bays.

    just to be clear, H.265 > H.264, correct? As in... noticeable improvement? I gots the 4th gen (i7-4770) which (if I read right) does not handle H.265. Trying to decide to keep eyes open for 6th/7th/8th gen if H.265 is worth it.

    Cable tester or qualifier for IP cams?

    ah. This makes logical sense. My day job is to run data cabling for computers and such. Not for IP camera's. I might have to test this out and see.

    Cable tester or qualifier for IP cams?

    Hire local dudes for it. To make things more economically feasible, someone (yourself or onsite employee) will have to identify the wiring. Since currently not identified, fastest way is to snapshot the POE switch port link lights. Have someone disconnect the RJ45 from camera and see what port...

    Cable tester or qualifier for IP cams?

    It depends on your expectations on your ROI. Do you run enough networking cable to justify a Fluke network tester? My company does since we are, after all, cabling installers :) However, the darn things come with a hefty price tag. I'd advise hiring local telecommunications outfit to come...

    Machine for BI and a few other things...

    probably, motion detection recording only? I'm at 16 camera's, most are 2MP and I'm continuous recording around 1600 MP/S myself. 16 x 4k camera's doing continuous would make my calculator blow up :) I have 2 8MP cams. They run 700-800k but they are only on motion, not continuous (my inside...

    Machine for BI and a few other things...

    16 x 4K camera's? I hope this would be all inside an office setup or such, not at home with outside night vision needs.

    REVIEW - Dahua Ultra AI SD8A840WA-HNF 4K 40x PTZ

    This camera could replace TV news camera's out in the field. Looks that good. Would look great at my house too! But dang... I thought having 12 or 13 x $200 cameras was spendy :)

    Upgraded my original 2mp starlights to 4mp (pics inside)

    I put my newer 4MP (5442's) 8' above ground to replace my 2MP. I decided to keep the 2MP for 20' above ground general wide angle overview. Comes in handy.

    Experience with Floodlight wireless IP Camera

    If the Dahua one above had hard wired option, I would buy one and play with it. I just installed 4x110vac security lights around the house. Already have 2MP cams at 8' covering each of the areas with an additional 2MP camera high above doing overwatch on 3 sides. 2.8mm fixed lens though...

    New guy looking for help on current build list

    Andy is here. Message him. You may get a slight discount as compared to Amazon. Just as fast shipping as Amazon Prime through the use of Andy's DIY wormhole generator. Granted, unsure of the current state of shipping with what's going on and all. In regards to the i7-4770 vs i5-6770...
