    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE Rhea V2.800.0000016.0.R.200430 Latest new firmware

    You would think there would be firmware versions that are recently updated and trustworthy.

    IPC-T3241T-ZAS SMD 3.0 Latest new firmware IPC-HX3XXX-Leo_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000000.26.R.210421

    We should be able to confidently install new firmware versions without fear of bricking the cam and without major functions breaking, such as focus. If it’s Beta it should be obvious and if it’s an official release there should be no problems of significance since that version was well tested.

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE Rhea V2.800.0000016.0.R.200430 Latest new firmware

    I wonder what version is safe to use. One guy said he had no trouble with v15. He said it was the latest official and public release from Dahua.

    Which Bells Reign Supreme?

    DsineR, my apologies, rest assured that I appreciate your contribution to this thread however I’m not seeing a date, perhaps this is related to the mobile version of the site. Here’s what my over-priced iPhone shows before listing doorbell cams. Also, some if not all of the missing brands could...

    Which Bells Reign Supreme?

    Do you know when that article was written? I hate when their is no date... More importantly, important contenders are absent, where is the: amcrest, rca, hikvision, Dahua and Ubiquiti UNIFI Protect doorbells? I wonder what the real contenders are. Sadly this consumer reports data seems useless.

    Which Bells Reign Supreme?

    Is there a certain doorbell or two that stands above the rest? It would be great to see a shootout amongst the top contenders.

    UNIFI Protect NVR

    But raid-5 does allow a loss of a disk without losing any data where jbod has zero redundancy.

    UNIFI Protect NVR

    What would have been a better storage configuration?

    UNIFI Protect NVR

    Any chance that this NVR will allow integration with existing Dahua ipcams like the 5231 or 5442? Thanks!

    Review - IPC-L26N WiFi Floodlight Camera

    Hey, you have crown moulding on the exterior of your house, wow, I never thought about that but it looks good--fancy! :) So, are you still liking it? It has two-way audio...?

    Dahua, Single Mount, Dual-Camera?

    Hmmm... I'm not sure if my HOA would allow something that looks like a pair of tits staring back at them.... :) Seriously though, the image quality of the humans at night were very low contrast. What do you do, mount two cams on most or all corners? Thanks!

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    I like the idea of a critter cam, something mounted down low I would assume..... Where do you mount your critter cams? Recommended cams or use whatever is not critically in use elsewhere?

    Flood Lights & IPCams Don't Mix?

    I always thought that a motion-activated flood light would seriously blow out the IPcam image for a while (possibly critical moments) as the auto-iris corrects. So, is there a way to make this work? I see that Dahua has this Floodlight cam, and as I mentioned I always thought these two items...

    Configuring Date/Time

    Cool beans! My Pi is sitting on a dining room chair with no UPS backup and connects WiFI only, but okay. When a cam restarts does it lose time completely?

    Dahua, Single Mount, Dual-Camera?

    On a typical corner of a home, I suspect that it's optimal coverage to have two cams mounted, with different views. Is there a single Dahua cam that fits two 5231 or 5442 level cams in a single housing? I think it might look better cosmetically. Thanks, R

    Review: Dahua HFW5442T-ASE 4MP Starlight+

    Wow, this looks fantastic, did you photoshop this one? :) Do the bullets have better PQ than the turrets???

    Configuring Date/Time

    I'm a Mac user that does have a Pi Zero running as a PiHole, what's the optimal time serving scenario. Let it piggy-back on any computer that is normally on and that has a UPS? Or, a dedicated Raspberry Pi? Or, something else?

    Zhejiang

    My UNIFI switch was showing one of my POE devices as “Zhejiang 38:21” with a vendor label as “Zhejiang”. Have you ever noticed that on your Dahua cams? I do see that name associated with Dahua but I was surprised to see it.

    Synology NAS NVR vs. a Standalone NVR

    I was looking at the DS1819+ to be used as a large repository for all local computers... I was asking what unit because Synology make surveillance specific units.

    Synology NAS NVR vs. a Standalone NVR

    Does BI allow you to use all of the IVS/Smart events (and AI?) from new Dahua cameras, or do Dahua NVRs allow some cool functionality when paired with a proper Dahua cam?

    Synology NAS NVR vs. a Standalone NVR

    What Synology are you using? Keep us upto date this sounds great. So, do you like the way the NVR and phone app on the Synology works better than the Dahua NVR?

    UNIFI Cams...?

    I didn’t see this before... a recent Dahua vs UNIFI thread.... https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/dahua-vs-unifi.50317/#post-477375

    UNIFI Cams...?

    So, I know I’ll be burned at the stake for mentioning this but, do you like the UNIFI cams? Do you have experience with that ecosystem? I’m tempted to buy into the system just to test it so that I’ll fully know how and when to deploy. Is there something really appealing about UNIFI Protect and...

    NA Models of 5231 & 5442?

    @samplenhold notice that the tear sheet differs from the B&H model. BH shows 3 year warranty not 5 and the extra little lens thing is shown on the BH photo... take a look. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1566210-REG/dahua_technology_n45dj62_4mp_ir_eyeball_starlight.html/qa

    Nice, can you send me a link to that exact firmware or the exact name? Was this FW from Andy? Thanks, Robert

    NA Models of 5231 & 5442?

    That’s what I’ve observed. The famously well performing cams like the 5231 and others have no USA market counterpart that I can determine. I was just curious. Are these cams in America? Thanks.

    NA Models of 5231 & 5442?

    I’ve heard that, but I’m still interested in knowing if certain cams are being distributed with other modem numbers in other markets yet are virtually identical.
