    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    I think I forgot the pics on my previous post. Shows up kind of purple on my phone cam, in real life looks a little red and less noticable IMO. Notice I did not post a B&W pic as I'm getting a lot of overexposure due to the IR bouncing off of the soffit area. I need to point the camera down...

    Yes, IR is always going to be visible unless marketed otherwise. I forget the spectrum that is not visible, but I would think their is a reason most vendors are using the visible spectrum. Also FWIW, the camera seems to stay in color mode for my while I have everything left at the default...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    As @fenderman stated, there just is not enough room. To be fair I only tried it very briefly with the waterproofed connector installed and no way it was going to fit, but I believe irregardless it may be too tight of a fit even without the waterproof connector. Also I think it would be silly...

    Well I'm probably one of the last ppl to ask about the physical install. If you are going to use a junction box then the hole only needs to be a little bit thicker than an ethernet cable. If not then you may need to make the hole a little bigger to fit the female ethernet connector in the wall...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    One thing I did notice is that the build quality is noticeably different than my other dahua cams. Like my IPC-HDW5231R-Z has metal parts, this amcrest has plastic parts. It seems to be much lighter, a little smaller, the pigtail seems much lighter and more hollow than my 5231's pigtail. The...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    I just sent them a crappy video of me unboxing the camera with one hand and rambling on about my initial reaction. I didn't care about the quality of the video, just the refund lol. They gave it to me already. They should have specified if they wanted a good quality video lol. And hmm I...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    How is it that the menu's are almost exactly the same as the Dahua camera's that I own? I find this kind of odd. Is this a rebranded Dahua in any way, shape or form? I saw a post from Amcrest that stated they would give anyone this camera for "free" in exchange for a video of either an...

    Dashcam - How do you not see a full-size pickup?

    Dashcam is a Viofo A129 Duo. This was on the way home to pick up my daughter from school. I do not believe they hit or I would have stopped and offered up the footage. Regretted not stopping to verify as soon as I pulled into the house but my main concern at the time was getting my daughter...

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Yeah they weren't happy at all with the service. I've never used it but I can imagine. They said they installed the cameras because his other truck had two bullet holes in it. I need to really save up and get out of the hood! Lol

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Yeah, she was watching the kids on a swing set out of view. I believe she went back and grabbed the kids and then went to tell her husband (son of the truck owner). Took a couple minutes for the family to get outside and have a look. They also have a camera facing that direction. They said...

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Pretty sure this was a visitor as I haven't seen this vehicle before. This house (where the car is coming from) has a lot of visitors if you know what I mean. I gave the export to the neighbors son. It's his dad's truck who is elderly. Wish I had a camera that captures license plates but...

    SD49225XA-HNR Anyone have one?

    Good question, hadn't checked yet, let's have a look... I believe the firmware that my old one shipped with had a build date of 2019-08-01 and this firmware has a build date of 2019-08-19. I say I believe because I don't remember 100% anymore if I had downgraded to that firmware or if that...

    Deep IVS, am I missing something for auto tracking?

    Wohoo!!! Just got my replacement cam from Andy this afternoon. I think I broke the old cam with a firmware update. D'oh! I just wanted to point out that Andy had been awesome with his service as always, so if you are on the edge I would go for it! I opted to delay my dinner until I installed...
