    DAHUA TiOC IVS misses human intrusions

    Hi @marfor Dahua, Hikvision, and even Reolink specs .. they all are flexible on their specs. Reolink, specs - it is even harder to get them pinned down on specs - so they're actually worse on specs and other issues ( as others have noted ). ALL security cameras have limits to their...

    DAHUA TiOC IVS misses human intrusions

    Fool go buy a go pro. You are the reason manufacturers don't sell to end users. Reolink is complete shit.

    DAHUA TiOC IVS misses human intrusions

    @marfor - Well then simply another case of operator error because these are not the appropriate cameras for Hollywood movies.... ;) And I will copy the relevant text into another appropriate thread so that someone following this one doesn't make the mistake of purchasing an 8MP TiOC. I didn't...

    Can't setup new Hikvision DS-2CD2087G2-LU cameras - Hikvision told me they are region specific and they can't help me

    You are lucky Hikvision even took your call! And yes many of us here buy from Andy with no problems using the cameras. He sells international cameras. Most of us here know that the Dahua and Hikvisions of the world do not cater to the "consumer" market - their target audience is professional...

    Available network topology options

    Yes, I was going to caveat that I should take his information with grain of salt. Ubiquiti obviously didn't pay him enough in the video I watched to tout them that hard... You make a great point about additional traffic through the switch, mirroring what holbs was eluding to. I think the switch...

    Available network topology options

    Keep in mind the hookup said that reolinks are great cameras, so consider what he says.... And plus whatever that dual NIC is the simplest and easiest way to go. Setting up VLANS has to be on a capable switch that can pass the data needed. The beauty of the dual NIC is not one bit of data...

    Yeah... set that option in gmail... have also tried yahoo (as someone on another post found worked), and outlook. Have tried all the different ssl combos... I'm either missing something or maybe there's a glitch in the cam software. Never had problems with other makes/models. Currently have...

    Deepstack not working with BI 5

    It isn't Blue Iris, it is the Reolink... Blue Iris and Reolinks do not work well together, but the same principles applies for almost any low end consumer grade camera.

    Different port types are confusing

    First, in Blue Iris, you simply put in the IP address and username and password and hit the find/inspect key and Blue Iris will take care of the rest of finding ports, etc. Second, Reolinks do not work well with Blue Iris..if you can return them, do so! Blue Iris and Reolinks do not work well...

    Losing signal, but can see on app

    +1 on above! Wifi is problematic for surveillance cameras whether you use BI or not because they are always streaming and passing data. And the data demands go up with motion and then you lose signal. A lost packet and it has to resend. It can bring the whole network down if trying to use it...

    Camera motion detection vs BlueIris motion detection

    Most of us if we have cameras with AI in them have found those to be superior (for the moment) than BI motion detection. Recent DeepStack integration helps, but motion detection can be a big CPU hog and if the cameras can perform it reliably, it lessens the load on the computer. Take a look at...

    Need outdoor dome camera recommendation for Houseboat

    Thanks for putting up with long drawn out answers :rofl: Seriously, so many come here after buying the wrong camera or system, like Reolink, Wize, et al. Then get irritated when the problems with those brands are pointed out. You're doing it the right way. Glad to help.

    Reolink RLC-810A Cameras - Lots of Problems with Blue Iris

    Hi @bethzur Did you move the Amcrest cameras to a short good test cable and lose connectivity? The reason I note is the often emf can affect cable runs which are not done well, and I've seen issues on cable runs. So far my Amcrest, Dahua cameras are running well.

    Reolink RLC-810A Cameras - Lots of Problems with Blue Iris

    I have a Reolink dome camera in my garage. I've never had an issue with Blue Iris. I did upgrade the firmware. It was indeed cheap, but it was varifocal which I wanted. On the other hand, I have problems with Amcrest cameras. One is back for warranty service and the bullet one was replaced with...

    Wifi camera interups other wifi camera

    I have posted this before. I did a wifi test a while back with multiple 2MP cameras each camera was set to VBR, 15 FPS, 15 Iframe, 3072kbs, h.264. Using a wifi analyzer I selected the least busy channel (1,6,11) on the 2.4 GHZ band and set up a separate SSID and access point. With 3 cameras...

    Hello hello

    You're finding out that video surveillance is a rabbit hole. Check reviews that includes day and night video, especially night video. Any camera can be made to have a good still picture at night, but a good picture with motion is the real key. Have a look at this thread regarding Reolink -...

    Amcrest AD110 - Can I do better than this?

    Doorbell cameras are still problematic. Many have instead gone with small dome wedges. A wifi camera will be problematic when you need it the most. Blue Iris and Reolinks do not work well together, but the same principles applies for almost any low end consumer grade camera. It is just...

    Reolink RLC-810A Cameras - Lots of Problems with Blue Iris

    I'll say it - - Reolink is crap. Don't waste your time, effort, and especially not your money. I'm one of those who ran into problems long ago with their cameras, and would not want anyone else to have that experience.

    Reolink RLC-810A Cameras - Lots of Problems with Blue Iris

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to the site, but I wanted to share a current experience I am having with the Reolink 810A Camera. I recently bought two of them (bullet style), and added them to my system. I'm running Blue Iris, current version, and I have 6 cameras, which I will expand to roughly 15...

    Advice on cleaning up recordings

    If you can return them, do LOL. I highly doubt a firmware update will add iframes, so let's all be surprised... Please provide a quick video snippet of a nighttime video showing how these cameras are working out well. We have yet to have someone that says they work well or the video is...

    Hell Yeah! Direct Deepstack Integration - 5.4.0 - March 31, 2021

    Hello wittaj I‘ve only now discovered there’s a “deepstack” function and just roughly browsing this thread. I am always interested in reading your posts when I come across them but so far as I know, you have here a significant misconception. You are saying that the “key” in the BI Status...

    Hell Yeah! Direct Deepstack Integration - 5.4.0 - March 31, 2021

    I agree about the Reolinks, I have 4 RLC410W's (2 were free, long story) and I also recently got an Amcrest with adjustable keyframe intervals. The best you can do with them is NOT use substreams, because those are far worse with the .25 ratio compared to the .5 of the main stream. I...

    It is worth pointing out in this thread the same issue that some folks will experience now that Deepstack is integrated with Blue Iris and thus people that have tried to use certain types of cameras with the other 3rd party apps are already aware of this, or will become aware of LOL: Here is...
