    Dahua cameras with Lorex NVR "Connection time is out!"

    I have a Lorex NVR connected to Lorex and Dahua cameras which was working fine until a recent firmware update. Now, when Live viewing the cameras on a desktop PC connected by LAN, after a certain amount of time a dialog box pops up which says "Connection time is out!" Does anyone know what...

    Dahua 4MP Varifocal Bullet (IPC-HFW5421E-Z)

    Does that mean the free version of OpenALPR is exclusively MJPEG? If the datasheet for a camera states "H.265+/H.265/H.264+/H.264" would that still work for OpenALPR? How much is the paid or pro version of it and what are the additional benefits to paying for it?

    SONY STARVIS CMOS Image Sensors

    I've been trying my best to compare and contrast PTZ cameras based on sensor type, but I have some questions I hope someone more knowledgeable can answer. Nowhere in the Dahua Datasheets does it specify the exact sensor used other than the size and resolution. All Environment Series...

    BlackVue DR900S-2CH

    Is the BlackVue DR900S-2CH the best Dashcam currently on the market? Apparently it uses a SONY STARVIS Sensor, but does anyone know specifically what sensor type it is? After having two vehicles vandalized recently, I would ideally like a 2-channel system with parking mode. I'd like to get the...

    Thoughts on the BlackVue DR900s? Apparently it uses a SONY STARVIS Sensor. I am also in the market for a dashcam after having two of my vehicles vandalized within the last few weeks. Ideally a 2 channel with parking mode. BlackVue DR900S-2CH - 4K UHD + Full HD Two-Channel Cloud Dashcam

    Review-Dahua Hi-fidelity Sound Pickup

    How is the sound quality from 50, 75, 100ft away? Assuming optimal conditions, i.e. minimal wind, no cars, etc., what is the maximum distance you could realistically pick up a conversation without distortion? Would a directional microphone be better suited for that purpose?

    Using PVC to build a budget pole for a PTZ

    How is the sound quality from 50, 75, 100ft away? Assuming optimal conditions, i.e. minimal wind, no cars, etc., what is the maximum distance you could reasonably pick up a conversation without distortion? Would a directional microphone be better suited for that purpose? Yes, my mistake. Wrong...
