    Compatible solar wifi cameras?

    My rooftop Unifi APs on my roof get me about 30 Mbps up/down on 2.4 GHz 600 feet away from my house. I'd like to locate a few cameras remotely. This is not situation where I can stick to my usual wired/POE policy. Has anyone had any luck with out of the box cameras that recharge on solar and...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    Yes, although it appears to power up on 24 VAC directly just fine but I can't use that in the deployment. So it's not totally dead but the POE power converter in the camera is.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    I haven't tried it yet because the Dahua was in that spot and I've been busy. I have the new motherboard AND I have a programmer they sent me I can use instead of the motherboard. I also need to update the firmware. I guess I'm about to find out this weekend.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    The camera died today a little more than 3 months after getting it. I've tried other POE+ supplies and cables but no luck.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    SUNBA is sending me a new motherboard that supposedly fixes the auto zoom and tilt up limitation. They're allowing 5 degrees tilt up.

    Do the firmware the seller gave me to downgrade too won't update on the camera. It says "Package version too low". They are totally not dealing directly with Dahua.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    The ebay seller, in response to me asking if I should download to the latest RELEASED firmware on the dahua sight sent me this link: https://mega.nz/#!FXgBxQaI!tAU6W1jbA0Eq0jzYQwkYIc4n6elcesONaWt31Wr0KbY And this is the previous version of the software and to install that. I ain't even...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    Interesting thought. So currently the IVS smart even intrusion size max was the frame and minimum was 0x0 so basically everything. I turned down max and gave it a minimum that is about the smallest I need to detect at a distance. Note the same failure rate occurs if you don't use IVS plans and...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    So the ebay seller for the Dahua asked me to make my camera available through Team Viewer and give them a time that Dahua could get online and mess with my camera through my PC at home. I'm not willing to do that. But I did place it on it's on VLAN that has access to the outside world but...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    Another bug. If you activate a tracking preset, the camera will not return to Park until until a tracking event occurs and finishes. Only then will the park action happen after the specified time. Hikvision has the same issue but support says it's not a bug and that I should use "Scheduled...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    Sunba has told me they are making a firmware change to allow upward tilt and will be sending me a new motherboard that fixes the zooming behavior. I think other customers must have had similar issues. They're also going to ad the missing exposure limit setting that is in the Hikvision but...

    Also, to be fair, the hardware is very nice. The PTZ is super fast and the image quality at night...even in color is very good. Rivals the Hikvision in those regards. If you're looking for a good quality PTZ camera, this is a good choice if it retains the reliability that my previous Sunba's...

    Hivision is first. Dahua second half of video. Same event. The sunba tracks better than the dahua but it just can't zoom in.

    FYI, the Sunba's tracking is rock solid. It just doesn't ever zoom in.

    Cost. How much are DS-2DF8236I-AEL new? I have two of them. I want to upgrade 4 of my 22 cameras to something that can track decently.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    The Sunba camera is a complete bust. It's missing a ton of features that the Hikvision has. 1) No face, human, or vehicle detection. 2) IR controls for IR level, exposure compensation, etc completely missing. 3) Detection types can only be done for a single preset each. For instance...

    I will. I realize I'm in a possibly unique position of having two mounting spots so close together that I can make direct comparisons between two cameras on the same subjects.

    Which might not actually be a good thing if they broke something with the last update.

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    The Sunba will be here Friday. I'll mount it in the same place the Dahua is now and compare it to the genuine Hikvision. The Hikvisions I have currently I bought two years ago this month but they were already two year old models when I bought them so they've got 4 year old tech in them...

    That 25% quote from me was only an hour or so after I got it installed. It's really more like 10%.

    New Sunba Illuminati

    They just don't have very good AT cameras. My Hikvision cameras are awesome and tracking solidly 90% of the time. Between my two Hikvisions in the front, I get 95% of all license plates even at night.

    New Sunba Illuminati

    The auto tracking on my Dahua is a joke compared to my Hikvisions: https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/dahua-poor-auto-tracking-what-am-i-doing-wrong.46141 I also have two Sunba's that I've had for 3 years and they have been flawless. But what really got my attention on the new Sunba Illuminati is...

    Dahua poor auto tracking - What am I doing wrong?

    The Sunba Illuminati has been getting good reviews on its tracking. I was just watching a review video when I realized all the menus are actually Hikvision menus rebranded to Sunba!!!!! The video shows a quick walk through of all the menus and they are identical to my Hikvision cameras.
