    Review-OEM Loryta IPC-T5442T-ZE Varifocal 4mp camera (Dahua)

    Ok I thought it required more resources to use both a mainstream & substream guess I had it wrong. So I need to have substream enabled in the cam's online Settings but do I leave it at the default settings? Not seeing where looney2ns said to enable in BI?

    Thanks for the settings and I don't use substreams so won't bother with that.

    Review-OEM Loryta IPC-T5442T-ZE Varifocal 4mp camera (Dahua)

    So I picked up a IPC-T5442T-ZE but didn't have time to mess with it until now. Looking at it's online settings for Video > Main Stream what settings do you guys recommend? I'm using BI to handle all cams so in Camera settings > Video > Configure > Make I've been using Generic/ONVIF... is there...

    Ok thanks I'll probably go the 5442 VF as soon as I get my stimulus check I appreciate all the advice.

    Review-OEM Loryta IPC-T5442T-ZE Varifocal 4mp camera (Dahua)

    So we can all agree the 5442 fixed ASE has the best low light performance vs the 5442 VF... but would you consider both cams equals for daytime viewing? How about on cloudy days?

    Review-OEM Loryta IPC-T5442T-ZE Varifocal 4mp camera (Dahua)

    Thanks for the replies I’m used to VF’s since I have (2) HDW5231R-ZE’s and a 3241T-ZAS surrounding my house but I do find I rarely use the zoom. I’m just looking to fill in some coverage in the front down the street. Leaning toward trying a 5442 3.6 AS but what’s the difference between the AS &...

    Review-OEM Loryta IPC-T5442T-ZE Varifocal 4mp camera (Dahua)

    Do you think it's worth spending a little more for this cam over the fixed IPC-T5442TM-AS?

    Maybe Another Cam

    Ok Thank You!

    Maybe Another Cam

    Thanks I don't really understand all the specs but you're saying the IPC-T5442TM-AS is still better than the cams I have and you can see the difference on pics. Am I understanding you correctly?

    Maybe Another Cam

    Thanks Andy a little surprised a two year old camera like the IPC-T5442TM-AS is better than the newer Loryta IPC-T3241T-ZAS. I've never had any cams that weren't Vari-Focal... but on the other hand I rarely use that function so willing to try something new and maybe even the 3.6MM option.

    Maybe Another Cam

    I have two Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-Z cams and a Loryta IPC-T3241T-ZAS cam these pretty much cover the outside of my house except for one area. If I wanted to add another cam is there something a little better than what I'm using without spending a lot more money?

    Review-OEM IPC-T3241-ZAS 2mp AI Lite series Varifocal

    Thanks nice to know that is the expected picture for that camera. It goes in and out of focus during daylight hours not sure what it does at night... I can’t tell you how often it happens during the day just that it does.

    Review-OEM IPC-T3241-ZAS 2mp AI Lite series Varifocal

    I'm hoping someone can help me figure out if I have a wrong setting, possibly a bad camera, or I'm just just expecting too much. I recently ordered a 3241's to replace one of my 5231's which quit working after 3 years and I've not been entirely happy with it. It doesn't seem to stay in focus all...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    The length for a bulk spool really doesn’t matter to me since it seems most start at 250 ft on up... heck as long as it’s 150 or more I would be happy.

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Yes I think my Dahua's came with rubber boots to protect against moisture. Can you guys link me to both a CAT5e & CAT6 outdoor rated bulk cable for no more than $50 or $60 that would work? Does I understand correctly that an outdoor shielded cable is really not needed and a shielded cable is...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    So is there any reason why this Monoprice Cat5e Ethernet Bulk Cable - Solid, 350MHz, UTP, CMR, Riser Rated, Pure Bare Copper Wire, 24AWG, 250ft, Black wouldn’t work for outside use and specifically for my needs? Or should I use CAT5e or CAT6 cable that’s outdoor rated?

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Yeah looks similar to what I already have the cable seems fine but they use the cheapest light plastic connectors was kind of wanting to get away from that but maybe have no other choice. That stuff is just so stiff and unflexible too don’t know if it has more to do with CAT6 or it being...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Well my cables run below my soffit just under the eaves so yeah they probably get sunlight just not direct sunlight but would pretty much be out of the weather though. Actually the more I think about it there is a section of the cable that would be exposed to sunlight and the weather. Do you...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Ok to answer everyone’s question I’m needing Cat 6 Cable to run under the eaves of my house. I have several Dahua cams mounted under the eaves of my house and I just had to replace one of my HDW5231R-ZE’s with a 3241T-ZAS. I’ve had issues with the 3241T-ZAS ever since I got it and Andy thinks it...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Yep what I've been doing for the last 15 minutes and I only see two options for outdoor Cat 6 Part # 10X8-622NH & Part # 10X8-722NH and don't see a way to order by the foot. Also the pre-made Cat cables all appear to me to be indoor cables.

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Ok I didn't know that but like I said I really don't know exactly what I need for an outdoor cable or and guess I don't see how to order bulk cable per yard at CableWholesale. Kind of why I just went the premade cables the first time so I didn't have to figure this all out. So at CableWholesale...

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    I guess you're both talking about me trying to make my own but I don't want to spend $200 or so on bulk cable when I only need a 35 ft run or at the most a 100 ft bulk spool for extra.

    Sell Custom Lengths of Cat 6?

    Does anyone here on the forum make up custom lengths of Cat 6 and sell... I don't feel qualified/capable enough to buy bulk cable and put the ends on? The ones I'm currently using are pre-made lengths from eBay and while the Cat 6 cable is fine (besides it being too stiff) the ends are pretty...

    I had to replace one of my IPC-HDW5231R-Z cams with a new IPC-T3241T-ZAS after it randomly began disconnecting. I haven't setup a new camera in about 4 years so kind of forgot how but using the Dahua Config Tool I was able to initialize and change the cams IP Address... but can't seem to login...
