    I was able to acquire 3 x Axis 3006-V and 2 x M1054's yesterday...

    it kindly reminded me to clean and organize my workshop before snowfall starts coming around. That's what I've done all day. Just don't let Looney see this mess

    Which ethernet cable would be best ?

    Jumping in 2 weeks late...but... if you know the rough footage that you require, probably cheaper to call upon local voice/data vendors in your area and purchase a specific length rather than just buying 1000' of something and have too much extra.

    Anyone tried the New Raspberry Pi 4?

    Hmm... UI3 on a pi. How do you use this? On a wall mounted touch screen display?

    BlueIris computer = Dell Optiplex 9020 MT Core i7-4770 3.4GHz tower. Limited to 2TB. Can go 4 or 8TB somehow?

    Well now... that was too simple. Replaced my 2TB #2 stoarge drive with 8TB WD purple. No issues at all. Thought the Dell Optiplex PDF stated max HD of 2TB (does not state MBR or as 2nd HD). Glad it is either outdated PDF or newer bios firmware or something. Now can run continuous recordings!

    Gots all 3 x 3006's operational and tuned up for Garage wood working shop duties. Pretty sure I have them focused (manual focusing...grrr). Wanted to capture the critical spots in the shop around machines with spinning blades. These guys do not have night vision but that's ok as don't think...

    ok. yes... the 3006's should suffice for low attention cams'. I'll put the 1054's somewhere. Probably front door cams because I can :)

    surprised they are low end considering the price tags as compared to Dahua cams. I usually install these models 3rd party for places like JCpenny and such for sales floor monitoring. Tis a corporate decision, not mine. Chris...ever dabble with the M1054's? couldn't image what they are...

    forgot to mention... free :) even if low end, with enough light source material, they should do the job of recording building/constructing/accidents in the woodshop. consider them....spare camera's to fill up space :)

    Covert night camera - recommendations

    could always ask the folks down the street that you have a camera for security purposes (maybe, get in writing that is ok for lawyer-speak?). I have brought such a topic up to my neighbors for LPR purposes and they loved the idea, as they could also come to me in regards to suspicious...

    I gotta say... Axis default settings compared to Dahua camera default settings (I have yet to really dig down and tinker with all the options of either camera yet)... the Axis looks really grainy/noisy. Axis is 3MP. Dahua 5221 is 2MP. The Dahua, even at standard default settings, is crisp...

    I was able to acquire 3 x Axis 3006-V and 2 x M1054's yesterday...

    took 4 hours just to see livestream image on Blue Iris :) Updated firmware to the latest greatest. Couldn't figure out the correct URL for RTSP using the standard Dahua camera menu options. Model was not listed in the configure/make & model (ended up using M/P/Q series H.264) Finally, from...

    Covert night camera - recommendations

    you could run a dedicated 12v/24vdc cable out there along with your 3 x data cables (advisable anyways to do). Set up IR blaster on a tree or something to cover camera field of view.

    Rack mount BI server reccomendations

    I wish it was a SFF :) Mine is a Mini-Tower. Nearly 7" wide. But I think I can fit it in my cabinet, laying sideways.

    Rack mount BI server reccomendations

    bleh... maybe i'll just stick it in my cabinet for now, laying on it's side. gots another 2TB harddrive coming in. should hold me over for awhile. But I do like this idea for a future project.
