    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    Indeed Drudge sold out, or at least that’s the rumor. Pretty clear that site took a hard left turn in the last 18 months. It’s now a liberal billboard.

    Having trouble configuring Dahua IVS

    I’ve found it best to make ALL settings (image, encoding, exposure, IR, Backlight, IVS, MD) and changes on the cameras themselves. Upon a reboot of the NVR it will adopt the settings from the cameras. Making setting changes on the NVR does not always push them to the camera well. Going back...

    ***PSA for those with a New DAHUA NVR with Built-in PoE switch

    The DMSS app push notifications should work in theory (though the app and its predecessors have a checkered history with notifications) I’m not a P2P expert so not sure what the problem would be viewing remote, did you add the NVR via P2P on the app?

    ***PSA for those with a New DAHUA NVR with Built-in PoE switch

    So you use your IP as when you’re on wifi at home. When remote, you first activate OpenVPN and it effectively creates a secure tunnel into your home network, so your “wifi” address still works because you’re as if you’re sitting at your desk. There are two different types of vpn. 1- A service...

    ***PSA for those with a New DAHUA NVR with Built-in PoE switch

    You use the IP of the machine same as when you setup SmartPSS For remote viewing you really should use a vpn such as OpenVPN. If you have an Asus router it’s pretty simple as it’s built in

    IVS dialing out cats/Squirrels

    Maybe try making the min box really big to test and then dial it back in steps? Dos your FW have the "global setup" tab under IVS? Some do some dont, Ive heard it can be useful but havent successfully set it up myself.

    Walks like a duck and all... The last discussion you jumped in in the middle of was with ctgoldwing where he posted an article about 50 supposed "former intelligence" types who claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop and emails were a bogus 'Russian Conspiracy".

    One I do have respect for, though disagree with on politics, is @Frankenscript . He's a smart guy willing to engage in factual discussion. He doesnt try and hide behind vague or sensational Twatter headlines or troll (much). I can enjoy having a discussion with him, (even though his politics...

    I’m no zealot. Nor do I agree with or defend Trump all the time. I don’t like him much personally, but I like the majority of his policies and can only judge the opposition by their words and deeds. But the election is a binary choice like it or not. You either pick a candidate or sit out. I...

    Same thing they’re trying to do with mail-in voting, lowering the voting age, packing the Supreme Court, designating DC and PR as States, and their controlling of the media with censorship and disinformation. Democrats can’t win on their ideas or policies so they resort to changing the rules...

    Do I look like I'm in pain LOL Is the only thing "factual" what you read on Twatter or CNN? How exactly do you decide if its "factual"? Are only widely discredited liberal news opinion sites "factual". Why is it some folks only throw out opinion pieces and ignore hard cold facts? Like...

    Kinda pushing it, esp at night I would think. If you have a good straight on angle it might work... Id go with the Z4 myself, but understand you want a turret.

    It does look like more IR would help. I’ve been playing with a wider open Iris with good results. Try bumping that to 65-70 and see how it looks. Can probably then play with gain.
