    advice with switches- managed- and going to VLANs

    Just kind of estimating based on a POE switch I bought recently for cheap. I assumed the "POE power" watts are included in the "switch power" watts on the Cisco sheet provided by @Brendon06 or it gets substantially worse. Also I don't know if these switches are comparable in other ways...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    You can use a USB ethernet adapter, I use one between Blue Iris and the primary network because it just has Blue Iris UI3 traffic, and I use the built-in for the more intense camera-only network, but know that neither interface really needs a gigabit network imho. However, according to a link I...

    Thrilled with my custom Dahua Setup!

    Yeah, my wife thinks I'm crazy also.

    IP Camera, ceiling moutned, for people counting

    Oh sorry about that, no budget specified so I took a stab at it. Maybe you could look at a couple of the AI threads on these forums and try out AI + Blue Iris + Super Cheap IP camera ? Maybe you have a computer already for home automation? that could run some AI/ML person detection? I'm...

    IP Camera, ceiling moutned, for people counting

    Not sure if it's exactly what you are after (or what your budget is), but I saw in Dahua catalog one specifically made for people counting, not sure if it might change with their new catalog so check with @EMPIRETECANDY . I haven't seen a review of the model IPC-HDW8341X-3D around here. I'm...

    Choosing hardware setup for BI on Threadripper 2950X system with nVidia

    I'm always too verbose, here's my points summarized. Don't record to the NVME, you will kill it dead and fast. Get some spinning drives and round-robin the cameras to spread the workload. (oop, @SouthernYankee beat me dangit) You likely don't need a new GPU, and any consumer GPU will likely...

    Car versus Pickup Truck

    I always worry I'll accidentally damage the neighbors BMW when I'm out snow-blowing or snow-brushing the sidewalks. Gives me anxiety because he parks right in front of my house where I must legally clean the sidewalk.

    Car versus Pickup Truck

    I'm not trying to blame anyone, and I'm not a lawyer or traffic cop either. I agree 100% it appears the parked driver failed to check properly before pulling out. I'm just saying, hypothetically, if the driver of the truck was speeding (50 in a 30) and possibly even distracted driving (staring...

    Car versus Pickup Truck

    Actually, I bet they could get a reasonable estimate of the speed. Given two fixed points in that picture that could be measured, and the number of partial seconds (if it's 10-20 FPS you get decent resolution of (0.1 to .05s) it took the truck to travel between them, you could get a reasonable...

    Issues with Fedex Shipping and Customs?

    For what it's worth, I've picked up a DT122-BE mini PC ($90) and you can also get HP 730 mini PCs pretty cheap to run pfSense you really don't need a full blown Intel i5. For anyone other than a BUSINESS you just (ideally) need 2 ethernet ports (or more) and something that can run 24x7 with...

    Attempted trailer theft across the street from me

    Hope the authorities get them! I never have this much good video of criminal elements in my area, hopefully the local construction company is identified, reimburses your neighbor and sends these guys to the unemployment line. Since it was only attempted theft I guess it is probably a...

    Deciding on a "workstation"

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ Exactly this, a small SSD for Windows OS boot drive won't cost you much and keep you from going ghetto trying to make 3 hard drives fit as well. I just picked up name brand 250GB for $35 on Amazon because I wanted a really small one for testing a used DT122-BE mini-pc I bought cheap.

    Hello to all, brand new guy stopping by to say thank you ipcamtalk

    Please share your idle and under-load power draw for that Ryzen system as your system develops. You will find Intel systems much more common here, because of built-in graphics and BlueIris’ built-in Intel acceleration support. However, as one of the relatively limited number of people already...

    2 Thieves in 6 months: IP Cam Recommendations

    Definitely some prickly bushes, possibly on the outside to deter and on the inside for them to land in might be a nice deterrent.

    Common issues with camera image

    I figured it was something I was doing wrong, even reported the issue to @EMPIRETECANDY but he guessed maybe a firmware issue with my camera. Glad someone mentioned this, will test that out on my 5442! Thanks to @Dave Lonsdale & @sebastiantombs will give CBR a try on that particular camera. I...

    Parking lot door checkers again

    At least these guys are amateurs hitting cars at 7AM when there is plenty of light. Hopefully, you catch them in the act so the cops can add to their criminal record before they get smarter about doing it in the dark of night.

    Parking lot door checkers again

    I wonder what happened between 6:59AM and 7:05AM that triggered the dark car lights to start flashing. Seems like alarm triggered but only after they are all off camera in the first video.

    Hmmm...Amazon Ring flying camera drone.

    Am I the only one that thinks I'll start getting all kind of "recommendations" for furniture, drapes etc that seem to be eerily a good fit for the inside of my house ? Or that timely notification that you might need to buy dish soap or TOILET PAPER ?

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Across the Street?

    Ouch. Maybe it has something to do with saving a few seconds of time, maybe he doesn't want to kill himself running between houses. But if a driver pulls that stunt in any major metro, Amazon will eventually be down a truck and all packages inside. Sure on any given day you're going to get dog...

    The Dreaded GAP. Very Frustrated New User

    Double check that CPU. It should either be: i5-6500T (4c/4t) or i7-6700T (4c/8t). One is mid-range + low-power the other is higher-tier but still low-power. What's your Blue Iris desktop view refresh rate (unlimited or something less)? If you are running Blue Iris as a service, you should be...

    Ubiquiti Loco M5 Issue

    Ahh, so possibly under that shield is some real damage then. I would think if it was a 48V supply the damage would have been in the power circuit, and usually the cans cover more the RF circuits. However, maybe the hi-power RF module has more or less a direct power feed. If you can't get it...

    Ubiquiti Loco M5 Issue

    Probably missed something but first glance of that photo I'm not seeing what burnt. Did it SMELL burnt, from lots of experience that's never good.

    Expert Recommendations for Live Streaming Camera

    Over a long period I have gotten really good advice on these forums. I have a coworker that happens to have a nice "river" view, and he wants to stream it (his thinking is ofc youtube), but he doesn't really want a dedicated computer setup purely for that purpose (he has one today for the Dahua...

    Trying to understand Hardware Acceleration

    Please post your system specs including RAM (this CPU can support 2 channels of RAM), and which NVIDIA card you are using. I will echo some earlier comments, I am currently migrating my Blue Iris off a i7-2600K desktop gaming CPU (which is superior in all aspects to your 2760QM). You are...

    900ft run. 10 gauge wire Powerline adapter. Got power, got internet (kinda)

    Yeah was a quick search, probably I am wrong. @Holbs can provide better insight, or even @Mike had a project that was similar length to yours, so maybe he can weigh in on "hidden" costs he encountered, or the best way he found. (Need suggestions on long runs (1,000'ish ft)) Plus I guess you...

    900ft run. 10 gauge wire Powerline adapter. Got power, got internet (kinda)

    Maybe because I haven't had to go this far I am not seeing the downside, but I think I'd still be looking at fiber connection instead of monkeying/hoping my internet doesn't drop out, or needing amplifiers or something to work around widely accepted copper limitation of 328 feet. I wish @Holbs...

    900ft run. 10 gauge wire Powerline adapter. Got power, got internet (kinda)

    I personally don't know much about MOCA, but a quick google search indicates the maximum length end-to-end might be 300 feet for MOCA. If so you should really look at P2P wireless or adding a fiber run in that conduit and using the power on the far end simply to power a media converter. In...

    900ft run. 10 gauge wire Powerline adapter. Got power, got internet (kinda)

    And you said you had pigtails partway along the run, any chance to TEMPORARILY hook the power line adapter up at that point during @bp2008 pingtest to see if everything is good to that point or not?

    Good place to get fiber optic cable?

    I miss that, my house in the midwest is the same, black dirt at least a couple feet down. The house in Colorado is clay nearly to the surface. Miss the midwest dirt when I garden.
