    Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

    Although I always stay on the latest critical or highly stable update, I see where the 5.5.6.9 includes a feature I could use: "Cancel alerts for specific PTZ presets".

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    When you navigate to the IP address where the OpenALPR client is running, the webpage opens up okay? http://[IP ADDRESS]:8355/ (from another PC within the home network) or http://localhost:8355 (on the same PC)

    LPR Camera location conundrum

    One incentive for a neighbor assisting would be to allow them limited user access to Blue Iris so that they can view the camera they had allowed on their property.

    LPR Camera location conundrum

    Check out the Ubiquiti LAN radios. All the neighbor would have to provide is local power to the LAN radio and the IP camera. The data would then be sent wirelessly across the street to your LAN radio, and into your home network and Blue Iris. Here's a link: airMAX NanoStationM 5 GHz Station

    LPR Camera location conundrum

    With the angle in the street and how it curves around your home, can't you just sell the home and buy one across the street, which would afford you better viewing angles in both directions? LPR is more than a hobby, it's a lifestyle! ;-)

    LPR Camera location conundrum

    One suggestion would be to place a camera within the bush. You can paint the housing black and mount it on a 4' tall vertical black 2 inch drain pipe, and it won't be so apparent. The Z12 with an optical zoom would then be able to view plates in that direction.

    Poor IR contrast in new Tennessee license plates

    I currently have a 940 illuminator supplementing the camera's IR, which I like for it being invisible, but if the plates all change to where 730 is required then I'll go that route in spite of any distracting orange glow, darn it! ;-)

    Poor IR contrast in new Tennessee license plates

    Where do you see an Axton 730nm illuminator? I see the 850s and 940s on their website. Update: I like this zoom illuminator, as my plates are 200 feet away, and the IR has to cross a neighbor's front yard. This model can zoom to 20 degree x 10 degree: Zoom 15Z, Flexible Range IR Illuminator...

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    Looking briefly at the licensesearch.org website, what I do notice is that on the account signup page, one must first check the box that you have read and agree to the terms and conditions, but when you click on the link for the terms and conditions, one first needs an account in order to then...

    So in your case, make the Model a 0, then the Make a 0, then the Color a 0, then the Year a 0, then the Edit button a 0, and lastly, the VIN a 0. This will make the VIN a 0, the Edit Button a 1, the Year a 2, the Color a 3, the Make a 4, the Model a 5.

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    Hi Nyght. Changing the tab order is really easy to do. You would look at the form within the Visual Studio designer. Click on to highlight a control, such as the VIN textbox. Look in the Properties window for the "TabIndex" property, and make it "0" or zero. Then click onto the Year textbox, and...

    The HookUp ranks the Empiretech T5842 (Dahua IPC-HDW5842T-ZE) as the best affordable camera if night time performance is the main concern

    wittaj: Seriously, you should consider starting your own YouTube channel for IP camera hobbyists!

    Barrier Gate Guidance

    If you use a LiftMaster or Chamberlain WiFi gate operator then you could integrate it into HomeSeer automation, along with Blue Iris.

    Smart Camera with Hand Gestures?

    I like that idea. Perhaps a clone and a schedule to send an audible alert only between Midnight and 5 AM?

    Smart Camera with Hand Gestures?

    Exactly. I'd like to see a standalone camera with the AI to accomplish this sort of deterrence. When recently shopping for a new security system, a merchant on YouTube offered his opinion that perimeter security systems which monitor doors and windows are useless, as criminals know they can get...

    Smart Camera with Hand Gestures?

    Apparently their service allows for hidden hand gestures to alerts the security staff that a person approaching has permission to approach.

    Smart Camera with Hand Gestures?

    The camera I had heard about briefly was actually a monitored service "Deep Sentinel", where a live agent speaks through the camera's speaker to inform an intruder that they are on private property. I had thought it was for a standalone product. Here's a link: Best Home Security System Company...

    Smart Camera with Hand Gestures?

    I heard that there's an outdoors smart security camera which can recognize preset hand gestures, and has a speaker to automatically announce to uninvited guests that they are being watched. Any leads on what this camera might be?

    Hmmm. Does the Push notifications work okay from their pushover.net website? I believe they have a way to test the feature there. Also, you don't need to install their app on the local machine in order to leverage PushOver.

    OpenALPR Tool - Save and Query CSV Exports

    Within your OpenALPR CSV files, each record's row has two time stamps. This is how mine looks: epoch_time_end 2021-12-26T11:56:11.920Z Yours should be similarly structured. Being in the UK, each of your records should be showing the true time, as epoch time is based on GMT. In my case, the...

    LPR camera placement

    I painted the casing of my Z12 to match the house color, so as to not make it stand out as much. If you mount the camera on the tree then you can maybe paint it brown to match the bark. Another idea is to place a small plastic fake branch on top of it, to blend in and hide. Update: Something...
