    IP/POE Doorbell

    I can only talk about my experience. My my wifi/ISP unit is 10-12 feet away, So wifi is strong. Performance as good as wired. It also worked hooked in Wifi hooked up to the rear doorbell. which was much further away like the other end of the house. A good 30-35 feet. I havent tried any trigger...

    Poor night performance - Blue Iris with Dahua IPC-HDW5442TMP-AS

    I have the luxury of using 5442's with a somewhat lighted outdoor property. My goal was to stay in color at night, so I had a company come out a replace the Sodium Phosporus lights with with Dark sky complaint LED's out the rear parking lot. Now I can stay in color at night with the camera's...

    One camera blurry on BI 5.1 (server), but clear as a bell on remote apps - how does this happen?

    Fenderman is one of the most experienced BI people in here. He is probably right on this one. When I was brand ass new with BI, I'd screw up a camera daily. I've accidentally mouse wheeled on the screen and zoomed up a camera or 2 as well. Takes awhile to get fluent with this software. mistakes...

    SD flash card cameras, no Wi-Fi---- IMPOSSIBLE FIND

    We've done all his research for him. but he isn't going to believe it until he finds out for himself. Dude, we all started out buying inferior stuff and got inferior results. these guys have experience helping people in here for years looking for answers.

    Good Morning, (yawn) If I remember correctly, ( which I often don't) Blue iris 5.1 might be be "pre-substream"? So I'd lean with Wittaj's answer

    Intro and questions

    This is what better cameras do to night time. The 5442 2.8 mm is #5 looking out over the Sodium phosphorus amber lighting. The 5442 6mm is Cam #14 (lower left) I just discovered what selecting "index" delivers when emailing alerts out of BI. rather than .jpgs of triggers. This is an email of...

    Carpal tunnel

    I only worked in Cable installing for about a year. maybe year and a half. CRS. :) a lot of it was Coax for GE antenna boxes to go ito their Wireless Cardiac monitoring Network rack. But in some cases we were installing 1 drop per room of Cat5e for the DASH 2000 Cardiac monitors as well, and so...

    One camera blurry on BI 5.1 (server), but clear as a bell on remote apps - how does this happen?

    @wittaj, Buy a Tier one POE switch. ( LOL) and a core i-7 10700 with 6000Gigs of Ram. LOL Ok seriously though, have you compared all the settings of the working 5231 with the goofy one? Or how about deleting the camera and then readding it using defaults.

    SD flash card cameras, no Wi-Fi---- IMPOSSIBLE FIND

    $50 cameras have thier place. Like in my underground parking garage. The 24-7 lighting make it easy to recognize folks. No need for a Varifocal Super Zoom cam in that scenario. (yet)

    SD flash card cameras, no Wi-Fi---- IMPOSSIBLE FIND

    1-$200 camera will catch more information, than 8 -$50 cameras.

    SD flash card cameras, no Wi-Fi---- IMPOSSIBLE FIND

    You get what you pay for in Surveillance technology. The photo of the Felon who had a Postal Workers key and stole our outgoing mail, is depicted here. one of several visits before we figured out what was going on. this was after the USPS master key was changed. He could not get into the mail...

    Empire Tech NVR5208-4KS2

    Some of the guys here think that everything should go to the Switch, and not directly to the router. But having said that, many routers are also 4 port switches. I think the point they are making is trying to keep the camera bandwidth to the switches and leave the router free to route. But I'm...

    Need to replace entire system for LPR and overview

    What kind of monitor are you viewing it with? maybe not a ntsc / pal setting on camera GUI, but perhaps a 50Hz/60Hz setting? might be listed with menu drop down that has Outdoor, Auto, etc.

    Onvif importance

    Wireless cams will slow your home wifi to other devices. Wifi doesn't transmit and receive as fast as copper. If you have a lot of smart phone users streaming, or surfing, the wifi channel will be slowed down by the amount of cameras on the wifi channel. if your ISP is giving you 30Mbps and the...

    can pulsation be from the PAL NTSC setting? or the 50Hz- 60Hz setting?

    Empire Tech NVR5208-4KS2

    i think the POE switch upstairs will work better if it's wired to the other switch downstairs... and the router is plugged into the downstairs switch. and the NVR is plugged into the downstairs switch.

    "Overview" camera for a garage that is ~150 feet away

    150 feet might still be a bit narrow of a view with the z12e. But it really depends on your actual scenario. A 5442 ze will be a wider shot at that distance. I just popped up a 6mm 5442 on a telephone pole, and was thinking it would be my overview cam. it's 10 feet off the ground. and is too...

    If you can setup a stable Blue Iris PC, and get some practice moving efficiently thru the software menus, you will be glad you made the move. Installed my 16th camera today, and the 8th generation Core i5-8500 didn’t blink. Running about 10-13% cpu.

    1 out of 3 new cams is working on web but not in my NVR

    You've angered the Hikvision Gods, with too many Dahua camera's and they have killed it. Shouldn't the NVR be assigning Ip adresses? I know the Amcrest/Dahua NVR's you leave that alone and let the recorder "see" the device, and assign it an IP. What are the Ip addresses of the working cams? what...

    wow, , , IPCAM works. The amcrest forum won't send an email. Howdy to the Forum.

    Try using Amcrests email support. it's slow as fuck but they got me my money back on a Video doorbell that wouldn't reboot after a firmware snafu.

    wow, , , IPCAM works. The amcrest forum won't send an email. Howdy to the Forum.

    Not every cam will/can send audio. you may have decide on which cam to enable sound? and there is the drop down menu on a camera, thats says like 64 kbps G.711 u-law, and 64 kbps G.711 a-law, RSTP, AAC encoder etc......might have to check or match the camera's default audio encode to the the NVR,
