    Hikvision DS-2DE4A320IW-DE PTZ --- a good deal?

    Can you share night video from this camera? I have DS-2DE4A425IW-DE with 4MP 1/2.5 and night image is not great but it's twice the price of this one

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    This is finally resolved. I was on the verge exchanging it until the seller recommended to go with 60watt hi Poe injector. I bought a random one to try out and no longer seeing this issue. This is very misleading as in the spec it says camera consumes 11watt (20w with IR) while none of 30watt...

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    Injector is plugged in into a switch where all other camera are plugged in. Already tried different cables.

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    Update. Got the 30w injector as recommended above. Plugged in and issue occurred almost immediately as before. I performed reset and reconfigured as before. Also disconnected from Hikvision NVR entirely for a good measure. None of that helped. As mentioned before issue occurs regardless of time...

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    It doesn't look like camera uses that much power though anyway but I will try 30watt injector and reset it for a good measure and report.

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    Interesting, I assumed that 4 port Poe+ 65 watt switch with nothing plugged in will have enough power. Ordered this to try out. Thanks!

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    I have tried several cable variants and brand new Poe switch with just this camera plugged in. Didn't make a difference. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076HZFY3F The fact that it happens with or without IRs on doesn't seem like power is an issue. I haven't tried factory reset so might do that as...

    SD5A425XA-HNR new camera, restarts when auto tracking event

    I bought this camera recently and loving it especially auto tracking but it has one problem which I cannot seem to figure out why it's happening. Camera occasionally restarts when auto tracking event is happening. I thought it could be power related but I already tried the following: 1. 3...

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    Unfortunately neither schedule or privacy mark will work. Schedule is random and camera follows any car tripped by wire on the street so if that car goes into driveway then it would also follow. It's a bummer I can't limit horizontal pan

    This is what I see in PTZ limit and none of the buttons do really anything. Couldn't find much online about this.

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    One other dumb question. Is there a way to limit travel of ptz during auto tracking? Camera likes to wonder to neighbor door when he arrives home and I don't want to spook him that I am watching. I see the is "ptz limit" but not sure how to use it

    Waterproof connector been covered by self amalgamating tape for a year aside from that I didn't have a box or anything else. I will try redoing connection and put it inside box thanks for suggestion.

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    Cable is solid copper and heavy duty for ground use, actually I don't like it as it's not flexible. It's probably 4 years old cat 6e and 70 ft long. Previous Ptz didn't have an issue though

    Well can't be Poe+ switch, it's brand new, so that leaves wire which I wanted to replace anyway some point.

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    I noticed I have one issue. Can't figure out if it's a software bug or power issue. In some cases when camera completes tracking subject it restarts and comes back online in couple of minutes. I have put it on a new 65w Poe+ switch that doesn't even have any other devices plugged in so I am not...

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    I mainly use everything default for image quality and it works great. There is overwhelming number of configurations but at least AT was easy to get working. I would say it works 95% of the time perfectly. I am now tempted to get second one but not sure where to place it. Due to large size it...

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    Got the 4mp cam with larger sensor then 2mp. Initial impressions it's huuuuuge but also awesome. Much better night image, so much so that IRs are not needed with some street light. I see some lens softness in corners at certain focal lengths but it's not bad. The important thing is auto...

    I do wish for Hik PTZ with AT but current price is a bit difficult to swallow.

    Review - Dahua SD49225XA-HNR 2MP 25x Starlight + IR PTZ AI Camera with Deep IVS & SMD Plus

    Yeah I didn't have long but it was enough to determine that I want a better night image for my coverage. I tried color and B&W neither was satisfactory for me. It's not a bad camera just didn't work for my night imaging needs.

    Why are you selling it? Seems like no better options to go with AT and large sensor

    Review - Dahua SD49225XA-HNR 2MP 25x Starlight + IR PTZ AI Camera with Deep IVS & SMD Plus

    I had high hopes for this but didn't work for me. Auto tracking was actually decent but night image wasn't that good for 2MP. I think I will have to swallow the cost and go with 4MP with bigger sensor.

    SD5A425XA-HNR pixelated/noisy image when ptz in motion

    I received SD5A425XA-HNR while playing around with it I noticed that at night when camera is moved or auto tracking started image becomes noisy until the camera stops moving it goes back to cleaner image. Is there some setting that might be causing this?

    Best cams with auto tracking?

    I have mostly fixed lens cams now 4k resolution from Hikvision (G2), HIkvision DS-2DE4A425IW-DE with smart tracking and a few generic auto tracking ones which do work, but I wish for better night time tracking. I ordered OEM Dahua with auto tracking to try out, but is there any other options...

    DS-2DF5286-AEL - missing smart functions?

    That is "smart tracking". If you can go to smart events you can enable for each smart event type too in the last tab
