    Another Dahua with condensation issues.

    Hi, thank you all for your comments. Their is a rubber seal meeting the front glass to the camera but this time it looks ok, I know they are prone to issues though and last time lost a decent camera because getting a new seal I found impossible. No one was interested, they just said Dahua...

    Another Dahua with condensation issues.

    Thanks Tekan, I did not realise the silica bags I put in could could not be reused, I assume by the fact I said the ones I got go yellow when used up implies they cannot or something ?. I have got plenty more though, bought 20 bags.

    Another Dahua with condensation issues.

    Hello,. I opened the front up, trying to get something in the top to prise of the plastic cover was a bit tricky, in the end found a plastic tool you use to open mobile phones up and that worked. 4 screws later, all good. Inside was 2 very large bags of silica, split one bag just trying to get...

    Another Dahua with condensation issues.

    Thanks all, I will open it up to see what I can see, dry it out etc, i do clean the cameras with window cleaner but that's all of them and only ever had issues with the Dahua's. I was wondering how the screw on top that holds the sun sheild on works, i.e does that have some sort of rubber...

    DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) Again or back to Dahua

    I will contact Andy to see how much one of these delivered to me in UK is, then I will have to decide 2.8 Vs 3.6, thinking 3.6 would be best at moment as I mainly use the 4mm Hik's.

    DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) Again or back to Dahua

    I have both Hik's and Dahua, plus have had several Lorex sets and still have a few Lorex Cameras indoors. Lorex I went off as they never seemed to provide firmware updates and things were missing, so coming to this forum I went to Dahua, still have a couple of 5442's. I like them for the...

    DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) Again or back to Dahua

    I do like the cameras but as I am now putting my name to it with the cameras and the NVR, I thought a check was in order that newer versions of either are not out now, expecially the NVR as I love it but I would expect it's been replaced by now perhaps ?. Point taken Wittaj :)

    DS-2CD2087G2-L(U) Again or back to Dahua

    Hello All, last year I heavily invested in a few of the above, months after a revised version came out apparently because hardware inside was not available and now the original version gets no further firmware versions. That makes me angry as I expect at least a few years firmware updates from...

    NVR normal recording DHI-NVR5216-16P-4KS2E?

    Hello, On examining my recorded footage on a DHI-NVR5216-16P-4KS2E recently which have cameras set to general and motion, i was expecting to find general doing 24/7 recording in 1 hr segments and motion separately giving any motion during those times, so basically if i needed to look at...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Does anyone know what's going on with the versions ending (C), from what I can see with firmware, the ones without (C) are G3 Platform with (C) being G5 and only G5 is getting updates even having December last year with non (C) being well behind ?. Sounds like the initial ones have been left...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Thanks Andy, I will have a read up tonight, is this a motorised feature, I e if the cam is following the person, I guess it is, never had a dome, a ptz etc before, so certainly allot of research to do, how much does this camera cost delivered to UK ? and what is the OEM model no, I know to...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HFW1831C-PIR 4k Mini Bullet

    Hello, I phoned them up a while back but they said I had the latest firmware. Since then I have only bought Dahua Original or Hikvision Cameras as the firmware updates are often and once after the initial outlay of buying a decent NVR etc, the IP Camera's are easy to swap out. I still have a...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Hi, I have HFW5442E-Z4E for long range and the Hik's for anything else. The Hik's are giving a better picture side by side at same range but obviously if you need a range the Hik's cannot get or a closer picture etc then the 5442E's optical versions I would recommend. The other good point...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Alot of people that notice my cameras like the led as a active deterance, unfortunately it gives you a worse picture so had to turn of and the LEDs are warm white instead of daylight white like I had on the Lorex, but I certainly liked the daylight bright leds I had on my old Lorex as an active...

    Hi, My bitrate is set to VBR 6144 using H.265, I think I remember I referenced these are valid against a guide using 4K on H.265. has anyone seen any difference increasing this value, happy to increase but only if it makes any difference of course. Thank you

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Finally had the front drive done, dropped kurb etc and hence lost the front fence. Which means the Hik is showing off, noted that turning the led light of on motion made picture alot better, otherwise had washed out number plates.

    This depends on if you are a retail customer or a trader. If you have any preference to where the goods are shipped from etc. Andy @EMPIRETECANDY can supply I believe anyone in any location at a price less than you will pay as a retail customer and is easily available etc. If you are a trader...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Managed to downgrade using Chrome with the Hik Extension on a Windows 10 PC, thank you. This was a direct connection to the camera not via NVR but same as earlier try with IE and Chrome, so only difference seems to be the Hik Extension installed.
