    Acusense DS-2CD2386G2-ISU/SL (Turret Camera) - Initial Impressions

    I just installed my first Acusense turret camera which replaces a 2CD2385FWD-I (8MP) at the front of my property. The reason for the update from the very capable 2CD2385FWD-I was primarily for better night time vision. The 2CD2385FWD-I has a wonderful image in good light but this deteriorates...

    From time to time I need to completely rebuild the motion event mask on all the IP cams connected to my Hikvision 7608NI/I2-8P NVR. The problem seem to occur if the NVR has been reboot. After startup the NVR seems to be resetting the motion detection mask back to include the full image which...

    Milestone Xprotect Essential + 2018R2 hardware decoding H.265 streams

    UPDATE 1: After rebooting the Milestone Server I am now seeing the Mobile Server use the GPU for transcoding the H.264 streams with about 30% GPU usage. Still need to try switching back to H.265 streams to see if GPU/CPU loadings differ. I have recently started using Milestone's Xprotect...
