I'm told I should talk with you about a 16 camera system.
See thread: https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/new-16-camera-system-needed-for-small-shop.17005/
Perhaps you could suggest something.
Thanx in advance,
Yeah, this stuff was bought several years ago, and sat for a few years before I came along and installed them... and that was at least 5 years ago. I'm not interested in any refund value. In fact, I look forward to chucking them in the dumpster. Soon.
All existing camera locations are good. It's just the quality of these existing cameras that is poor.
Exterior cameras are at the top of the building eaves (about 16 feet off the ground) and work well as positioned.
Two at the rear of building, one on each side (viewing the yard gates), and two...
Hey guys, it's been a while since I was hanging out here on this forum... too many other issues in life have taken priorities. My 7 home cameras (Amcrest) and my home built BlueIris Server are working fine. I've thrown away the cheap chinese PTZ I was playing with. But now I have a new...
It's a Lian-Li case (343-B) that was never available in the U.S. so I found and ordered one from Norway. Even with the shipping it was a great deal and worked perfectly into the plans I had for a Large Plex Server (You'll find me hanging out on the Plex Forums often as well). I really love the...
One thing I did try was to cut off any excess Cat5 I had in the attic (I had left enough that if the sun-exposed portion of the route got brittle, I could just pull some out of the attic vent and reconnect).
This made the final cable only about 22 feet... but it still didn't work.
During the bench test, I used the splitter/injector that is currently being used on another camera and is working there with no problems.
In all situations the signals passed through the same switch.
I'd love to think it was the cabling, but I'm currently using that cable on that camera with...
Tried Preset 95 on mine too... no luck.
The documentation on these import cameras is minimal at best, so finding this kind of backdoor might be a pipe dream.
But I'll keep looking. Where my camera is mounted I could really use the extra few degrees of tilt, so I can capture some great backyard...
So... got it working this evening. I took the power supply up on the roof with an extension cord and eliminated the Passive Injector/Splitter and the camera came to life, found its reserved IP address and showed up in Blue Iris.
I then took the Injector/Splitter that I was using and put it on a...
That's not a wall... those are raised floor panels. The servers must have tipped when one or more of the floor panels collapsed. You can see the panel legs near the bottom of the server.
That's my guess.
