    Would this do for license plate captures?

    I was playing around with the SD49225XA-HNR the other day and had the great idea of trying to capture license plates just for fun as I have seen other people on here doing it with more equipped cameras. A 2MP camera running 1/2500 - 1/3000 shutter speed really gives a good image of plates on...

    Deer captured on camera

    Correct. I since synced the time. I might just disable it and use blue iris time instead.

    Deer captured on camera

    Here is a clip of some deer caught on camera around 3AM. This was captured using @EMPIRETECANDY's SD49225XA-HNR, the day after installation. First time using a real PTZ. Zoom is great (although it was not fully zoomed in on the clip) and night vision works really well especially when zoomed in...

    Voices in my head...

    Looks like a pretty important conversation was going on... also what camera is this? I am looking for a PTZ camera to add to my system.

    Fox captured on cam

    First couple weeks running the IPC-T3241T-ZAS and after reviewing clips from last night, I found something interesting. At first glance, I thought it was a cat but it was a fox. Given where I live, I expect to see more wildlife on the cameras.

    Dahua night vision concerns

    That all makes sense, thank you for explaining. I didn't know if that would wear the camera out however I will be sure to adjust the sensitivity and the camera itself. I'm learning that it's a process, trial and error but that's apart of getting the most out of it which I intend to do...

    Dahua night vision concerns

    It has been a couple days now since I installed the IPC-T3241T-ZAS. After some changes to the shutter settings for the day/night profiles, I am noticing some things that concern me. When it changes to night vision, it keeps going back and forth from night vision on to off (back to color) for...

    Outdoor mounting question

    I was just looking at the pfb203w for mounting it to the wall. I have a similar camera coming and I want to mount it to the eve. Would I need a bracket for that if it's under the eve or would be okay if it was mounted directly under the eve withoit the bracket. Thanks

    Outdoor mounting question

    I recently received the IPC-T2431T-AS and I plan to mount it on the outside wall of my garage like in the position as shown in this picture, The housing of this camera seems to be some sort of plastic and my dad mentioned that the sun would beat on it. I am trying to consider the longevity...

    What do you think of these two cameras for a first time setup

    Alright, I thought that's what it meant but wanted to make sure of it. Thank you. I was thinking about placing one on the deck which is sort of a small area, and perhaps some side doors.

    What do you think of these two cameras for a first time setup

    Stupid question - is the IPC-T3241T-ZAS a starlight camera? It only has the starlight box on the product page but is not listed elsewhere compared to other starlight cameras on the store and Amazon.

    What do you think of these two cameras for a first time setup

    I was looking at the IP5M-T1179EW-28MM before considering any of the Dahuas. They look nice for the price, I might buy a couple in the future to mount around my house and see how they work.

    What do you think of these two cameras for a first time setup

    Actually just cancelled both my orders for the 2231 and the 2431 on Amazon, bought the 3241 from the IPcamtalk store. Only $9 more, worth it for the mic and potentially better image quality. Trying to figure out what to buy instead of the 2431 considering the senor size at around that price range.

    What do you think of these two cameras for a first time setup

    Thanks for the reply. I am going to look for 2MP with that senor size more often now. I guess I don't need those exact specifications for every area I plan on putting a camera at, but I assume it's good near the road/entrance to my driveway. Will the microphone in another camera that covers...
