    Is a dome good for indoor use?

    Just realized there's no IR with this model but my question still stands with dome cameras in general.

    Is a dome good for indoor use?

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah I thought since it's away from the elements then it should be fine. Sometimes the garage door is open for long parts of the day but it shouldnt get direct sunlight

    Is a dome good for indoor use?

    Considering getting the SD22204UE-GN, a dome PTZ camera, to place inside a pole barn as it's a good fit. I understand domes are not great for long term use due to the dome itself causing glare and what not but I was wondering if this applies to indoor use as well? Just collecting thoughts...

    FTP server test doesn't seem to be working

    Thank you for the help. Blue Iris confirmed that they do not currently support SSH however they have it in their research list. Also the IP is to an off-site storage server, nothing local

    FTP server test doesn't seem to be working

    I am configuring my FTP server to use as a backup and when entering the correct FTP connection details (works on FileZilla) and then testing, the test does absolutely nothing at all. No usable information as seen below and no sign of anything being uploaded to the folder. Here is my...

    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...
