    Looking for feedback and testing of my Dahua Home Assistant integration (via HACS)

    Wondering if anyone has found a way to send a snapshot to HA upon crossline/human/etc. detection?

    Dahua cameras and integration with home automation setup

    If you are using Home Assistant, there is a good integration put together by @runraid!

    Hubble Panoramic Camera

    I have 3 Acres, but I'd have to think how I'd mount that monster!

    Expanding Dahua NVR for Remote Cameras with 5GHz Radio Link

    I know it is Alaska and digging may be difficult due to rock, but 200' is not all that far for ethernet wire. Assuming you could dig/get to where you want to be, you could bury a 1" conduit and pull a couple of ethernet cables or even a fiber (which would give you the most bandwidth).

    Normal, Day, Night Profiles for Dahua Cameras

    AFAIK, that camera doesn't have onboard IR illuminators and I'm not sure it has an IR cut filter either. You will need to provide external lighting to get any usable night time picture.

    Dahua Camera - pings for a bit then seems to restart

    I just had the same thing happen. Depending on the camera, you can use TFTP to get the firmware on the camera. See this thread for guidance. I'm by no means an expert, but after reading the thread (and successor thread) I was able to get it working.

    FYI: Weather Station LUX/UV sensor for day/night events

    If you are using Home Assistant, you can make an Automation using the Sun Angle as well. This turns on some string lights via a Z-Wave switch when the Sun is 1 degree below the horizon, but you could use it to fire any action available. Especially if you are using the Dahua Integration alias...

    Latest new IPC-HDW5231R-ZE IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000018.0.R.210707

    Upgraded 3 of my 5231's. One didn't like it and I had to do a TFTP recovery on it (which was interesting as it was giving "no dr command found"). But it is all good now.

    Looking for feedback and testing of my Dahua Home Assistant integration (via HACS)

    I can confirm (not surprisingly), that this is working on the 5231/2231 and 4231FP-AS cameras as well. Thanks for the great integration. Hopefully this can make its way to official!

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE Rhea V2.800.0000016.0.R.200430 Latest new firmware

    IPC-HDW5231R-Z To be clear, I have the one that failed the UG working on v16, but it required using the serial connection. The other camera (same model) has had other issues and won't write the boot partition with 'run da' where 'run dr' give a successful write

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE Rhea V2.800.0000016.0.R.200430 Latest new firmware

    I upgraded one of my cameras from V2.800.0000008.0.R to V2.800.0000016.0.R. Factory reset to defaults before the upgrade and upgraded from camera interface. It didn't go well and it wouldn't recover via TFTP, but I was successful via the serial connection. I tried an older camera that complains...

    New SmartPSS win64

    What model number camera do you have? Can you view the image by directly going to the web page? My bet is there different encoding, bit rate, or some other issue that is causing issues. If you can relocate one of the working cameras to a non-working location and see if that works, that would...

    disable the 2 that are working and see if the 2 that aren't start working. Are you sure that you are logged into the camera (correct username/password)?
