    1st POE camera setup.

    IP5M-T1179EW-36MM GS305P On my POE switch I get an amber LED (POE fault) and my camera is warm to the touch. My camera is attached to the switch and the switch is connected to the router. My W10 with Blue Iris is also connected to the router. Did I miss something?

    Yeah, that’s what I heard. With 8 too.

    Previously opposed to Microsoft Windows

    So I left Windows XP SP2 and went over to Apple in 2006. I know that I said on this forum that I would use Linux or Apple before Windows but difficulty with miniDSP on my Mac prompted me to purchase Windows 10 Home. After installing 10 I found that my old Dell monitor, that has a DVI -> HDMI...

    Can someone recommend an IP camera?

    I’m not sure I read it in it’s current form but I did notice that my switch is not listed. Oh well, I’ll still try it. I’ll go off the list for the next components. Thanks

    Can someone recommend an IP camera?

    Oh, I haven’t thought of using a varifocal to determine FOV at all locations. Excellent.

    Can someone recommend an IP camera?

    So far I have a Dell Optiplex 7040 (No OS yet) and a Netgear GS305P. I’m now looking for my 1st POE camera. I think it should be 4mp, turret, 3.6, 30fps. What other specs should I be looking for? Is Amazon a good source for cameras? Who should I avoid?

    Monitor size

    I can see the appeal. I just finished installing Linux XFCE on my MT and connected it to my 52” plasma TV. The HDMI -> DVI adapter should arrive in a few weeks. Then it’s down to a 21” Dell monitor.

    My humble setup so far....

    You have 2 Ethernet ports on your tower? I was thinking tower and POE switch to router.

    Monitor size

    Yeah, a 43”/ 4K TV would be nice but I’m wondering what to expect using 3-4 HD cameras on a 20” DVI monitor.

    Three monitors, the left and right ones minimize on their own.

    So are you saying that your 3 monitors display full screen at the start of your viewing session? Then after a short time of looking at the keyboard, you look up to find your outer 2 monitors are minimized to the dock? If so, I’d say you hit the Minimize command key while you were “hen...
