    Changed my SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP PTZ upstairs window mount added HFW1831E as an overview cam and maybe to trigger the PTZ.

    and thanks to @Wildcat_1 my PTZ is pretty much great I just need to adjust for the move. So, now I can actually use the PTZ and zoom in on my cars or whatever and not have to rely on autotracking. Day is great with a hiccup now and then, night it ok around and before the sidewalk but past that...

    Moved my SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP PTZ from back patio to upstairs window

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I may look into something better later. I originally had 3/4 x 3 x 2 I had cut up to make a bracket but was worried about the weight of the PTZ main reason I used 2x6.

    Moved my SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP PTZ from back patio to upstairs window

    I originally wanted my PTZ in the upstairs window as it was the highest point and a straight non angled view. Though, it would be behind glass and not the best I could work with it as I have in the past. This time it wouldn't work as to much of the side views where cut off and the glare even...

    Review: Dahua SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP 25x Starlight IR PTZ

    So, I have been messing with mine for a few days and day is great but I can't seem to get a good picture at night in Color or B&W and at this point color is a little better than B&W to me as the capture goes. Color is ok if forced but wondering why is similar to the 5442 I have to force color...

    SD5A425XA-HNR Tracking getting there but not quite.

    I'm messing with the auto tracking and it's ok but maybe could be better, not sure if it the angle or what but most subjects seem to not tiger the IVS. Also, will start out good then loose subject. Tried to blur out the kid and got it for the most part just trying to not post under 18...

    Well finally got my SD5A425XA-HNR 4MP PTZ mounted

    I finally got around to kind of ghetto mounting my PTZ, but it works for my need and has a better view than I thought it would. Gets a little wobblily if really windy may get another 2x6 and mount together or a angled post, though for the most part it's fine. I wanted a 4x4 but couldn't find one...

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    Ok, I setup intrusion with SMD. SMD was getting more but not long enough maybe 5 sec max unless there was more than one person. Face detection was getting like 15 sec or more. I'm just looking for a way to not have to scrub through footage and to be able to find a quick starting point in needed.

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    Well I turned off face detection and used SMD and I do get human under SMD AI, but only 1 out of 4 actually have any video. So not sure if I was too fast or what. I'll let it go awhile and see, but I may have better luck with face detection for whatever reason, like angle/light I dunno.

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    I thought I did or normally did human and not vehicle will have to check after work.

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    5216-4KS2E with 4.0 I didn't know one or the other wondered about the SMD error/conflict. I normally set in the camera and not the NVR as it doesn't always seem to take if set on the NVR, but works sometimes.

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    I can't figure out how to enable or get human detection to work. Tried IVS/SMD human and an intrusion box, but nothing shows in human ai search.

    Got my front door/delivery cam up and wondering Face vs Human detection on 5442

    I currently have face detection and works fine, but wondering if human is any better as it can log more info. Is there anyway besides snapshots/email to back up to like a FTP for off site/safe keeping? Also, I can see the AI logging into the NVR but is there any to see it in SmartPSS?

    Finally got to play around with one spot I would like to put a overview cam

    Yea, true I just liked the location. Would mount on the soffit but the bricks go all the way across blocking what I want. I'll look around some more and see what I can figure out. I'm just trying to avoid mounting inside the windows. As they don't care here if I mount outside to drill holes as...

    Finally got to play around with one spot I would like to put a overview cam

    I have a nice spot in the brick wall I would to put either a 1831E or 5442, probably the 1831E as I can sit it in the bottom of the plus sign I guess you would call it. I tried both and there isn't really enough light for even for the 5442 to get good color. So, leaning towards the 1831E as...

    How and where to mount 5A425XA-HNR PTZ

    No, just the patio where I will mount it...…I want to have an over all view and to watch my cars if parked here or across the street as parking here kinda sucks, but like the townhouse for the price.

    How and where to mount 5A425XA-HNR PTZ

    So, I'm hoping depending on the weather to finally mount the PTZ and a 1831E or 5442 as a overall view/spotter. Just not sure if I should just get a 2x4x8/10 and attach to a fence post or get like a deck block or two and make a mount. As my last PTZ was mounted above the window behind glass. So...

    My Brand New LPR camera!

    I would just get some 1/4" plexi or lexan, unless it's a dome, but prefer plexi due to less yellowing and more scratch resistant. Trace cut and polish install.

    Moving after all the fun car checking and the ATM robbery need help deciding on new cam/PTZ

    Well I had the extra and went with the 5A425XA-HNR, I had the 49225 late 2019 when they first came out, but sold it when I moved and wish I hadn't. So just wondering if there is that much difference in the two interfaces and AI. Will test tonight to make sure all is well, but won't be up and...

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    Well making private for the time being will change at a later date. They came back needing more info and video and not that I can't post it, they just really would like I didn't so I'll give them some time. Well its been long enough, so I figured I would turn off private. I guess YouTube...

    Moving after all the fun car checking and the ATM robbery need help deciding on new cam/PTZ

    So we are moving this week/weekend not far but hopefully better location not as much traffic and more housing and commercial shops. Only issue now is parking and may at times have to park across the street. So looking at a varifocal bullet or PTZ but leaning towards PTZ as would be easier to...

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    Please doesn't post this elsewhere or public...as the Police just got the video and are going to work with the FBI. Also, just found out it was over 100k...I had no idea that much could be in a ATM.

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    It was 1/250 gain 80 but changed to 0-18 and gain on 55 and noise at 30 on the last one of them walking. Still trying different settings but better than it was for now.

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    Thanks, not there yet but much better still messing around and for how dark the side is I may live with it, as I mainly care about my cars. May try b&w next weekend and compare. So only question now is how does ms relate to shutter speed like 1/30 or 1/120 or whatever. Is there a chart...

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    Just out of curiosity while I like color and the light is ok for close or big objects it still ghosts and is transparent at times. I think I need a little more or spread out light to get the best results. I don't mind b&w if it would help with the streaking/ghosting but I can't get it set right...

    ATM Getting Broken Into 4.11.21

    Didn't hear anything last night but woke up to a card on my door. Forgot to disable the sound for privacy as I don't have a sign up....but don't think they will mind on this one.
