    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    So I used to work with a lot of "Engineers" in television and Hollywood. Many were morons and they were usually in charge due to there political prowess. Bad Engineers, great Bull Shitters. But my fellow workers and I always said " well at least they didn't go into Medicine". God help us if...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Question for @Frankenscript and @Arjun . You spend a great deal of time posting here. And probably even more time coming up with your posts. Do you have jobs? And if so, does your employer know how much time you are spending here while billing him/her? If you say it is on your "off time" ...

    Installed a small system this weekend and one cam IPC-HFW5231E-Z12E 2MP 5.3mm ~64mm seems to have issues

    So this may be an obvious one but is the protective clear plastic cover removed from lens? I just got the same camera , actually 5241 version, from Andy and was in such a hurry to install, I forgot to remove the cover!

    I think it is all about penis size now and Q seems oddly threatened, or not.

    No cameras showing in Blue Iris (or when troubleshooting SmartPSS)

    So op, look at post 2 here by @SouthernYankee and answer his questions which has not been done. @Mikk36 read your own post as to your advice to put the pc on a different subnet than the cams and disable the second nic. I'm out.

    No cameras showing in Blue Iris (or when troubleshooting SmartPSS)

    The instructions given above will put the cams on a different subnet than the PC. Do not do this. Guaranteed not to work. Assuming all devices are now on the same network.(NIC)

    No cameras showing in Blue Iris (or when troubleshooting SmartPSS)

    When you say you changed the camera ip to 192.168.51.151, it sounds like you did that in BI? You realize that won't change the actual camera ip. You need to do that with a browser or the config tool.

    Mini-PTZ Give-Away Qontest

    Millenials are a very different generation from those that have come before through no fault of their own. It is not as easy as "that's what every older generation has said". Because they are so challenging to manage, companies are training managers on how to deal with them. This video featuring...

    PFBlocker for PFSense

    @Sparkey sounds like you have open ports? Port forwarding generally a bad idea. Any particular reason? Most of us set up OpenVPN for remote access and do not expose any ports.

    hik and dahua camera both stopped working

    If it was poe powered you might see if it works on the 12vdc power input. I have had this happen and used a poe splitter to power the cam.

    Reflection at night on HFW2831T-ZS

    Tilt down and zoom in might help in addition to what @looney2ns says.

    Port forwarding- Ports cease to work after a day or so

    If you think there may be two routers and double nat, run tracert to 8.8.8.8 and look at the hops.

    Dumb question, fixed IP address?

    Well you could do that and that would be setting it to "static". But generally better to go this way with dhcp reservation. Cams of course must be set for dhcp and sounds like they are.

    Newb - Secure VLAN setup

    So I have the 8 port version although it is pretty old and your firmware may be different. My BI pc is a member of the main home lan and the camera lan, which is what you want as well. I didn't use vlan 1 as that is a best practice, although I can't remember why. Here is my config:

    Video removed - FedEx drives over neighbor's dog, no brakes, doesn't stop

    Yes we have had that problem here as well. They get paid less than UPS since they are not union and sometimes it can be difficult for the contractor to find good drivers. I am also rural and my dogs chase the truck when they are on my property and that could be about 500 feet. Drivers are...

    Video removed - FedEx drives over neighbor's dog, no brakes, doesn't stop

    WHich Fedex was it? Here in SoCal there are 3. Express, Ground and Home. Express are actually Fedex employees and union members. Ground and Home are employees of the contractors who have route contracts. Typically not union members. Easier to fire.

    Resolved - Logitech RTSP not working

    I can't speak to BI5 as I am still on 4, but I can tell you BI needs the correct user/password for these to work. You may want to verify that.

    California July Earthquake Home Vidio

    Do you think that was mainly the camera mount moving? I am about 95 miles from epicenter and the one cam I had that was continuous really doesn't show much movement. It is mounted pretty solidly on an 8 in steel post. I was hoping for a dramatic shot but pretty boring. Maybe because everything...

    Arguably UDP does not respond to ping so you are essentially stealth.

    The problem with bullets

    Yes I have a few of those and absolute spider magnets. But on the newer Dahua bullet style, you can pull the sun sheild all the way back and I think it helps. I am having better luck on the 1831 having done this.

    Open VPN- struggling to "get it".....

    OK, you need to run the OpenVPN program on a server within your home network. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is with an ASUS router that has an OpenVPN server built in. Other routers may as well, but my experience is only with ASUS. And you would run the OpenVPN app on your phone...

    Open VPN- struggling to "get it".....

    Sometimes this type of VPN is described as a "tunnel". A secure encrypted pathway between two points. In this case, your phone and your home network. It allows you to securely connect to your home network and appear to be within the lan. So you could access anything on the lan, like your pc or a...

    18 hours without power (so far)

    Hard to beat a Honda small engine. I have looked pretty closely at a variety of generator brands including Generac, Champion, Duromax, Pulsar and a few others and they all appear to have the same engine made by Ducar. They may claim it is their brand but I think that it is made for them by this...
