    Dahua NVR Reboots during the day

    5) Requires additional wiring/hardware to distribute power to the cameras. PoE is f'n awesome.. that feature alone is the coax killer.

    Was snowing here this morning for a lil bit; but forecast is in high 70's and 80's for the next week (lows in 40's) so I intend to make some progress finally.

    dahua starlight cams - attract bugs with ir light?

    if you have anything infront of the camera for em to hang a web off of they will if they can; if the furthest thing out from the structure is the front face of the camera it becomes much less likely... cameras mounted to poles or on the broad side of a wall are fine, tuck it under an...

    dahua starlight cams - attract bugs with ir light?

    when installed correctly, lots of ppl want to tuck them back under overhangs and stuff then all bets are off.. still tons better than a ring of round diode LED's that are still far too commonly produced. best cure to bugs is disable the IR and use external lighting; the starlights are the...

    @eatmorfood disable PTZ functionality within BlueIris; nothing on the camera its self is capable of moving the zoom level automatically..

    Review-I'll be the guinea pig for the new SD59225U-HNI PTZ.

    reset to defaults and try upgrading again?

    Dahua Starlight Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-Z)

    yes that mount has plenty of room for the wiring to tuck inside; still have to drill a 1/4in hole to pass an unterminated ethernet cable through but it sure beats a ~3/4in hole needed to fit the entire connector.

    Considering she has to carry it 9 months I can understand why she feels ripped off only getting 2 weeks of paid maternity; I've been working from home and in cubes for for too long, time to get back out in the field while I still have a bit of youth in me ;) If I can make just a lil bit more...

    I'm still alive; just busy as fuck.. ~76 days and counting til lil Leonardo is born (7-17-17), shits ramped into high gear.. lots of loose ends to tie up. Bought a new vehicle, got 2 derelict ones out of here, cleaned up the garage, cleaned up the yard, painting kids rooms, refurbished an old...

    Dahua Starlight Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-Z)

    if you change the password from defaults you have to have to hit manual add on NVR which lets you specify the correct password; if you just add it directly it uses default credentials which hammers the camera and locks the account out. I create a backup account for my self so I cant get locked out.

    HDW 5231R-Z night time images

    external lighting is almost always better, wont attract bugs and weather (rain/snow/fog) wont blind it.. consider external IR illuminators if your wanting more punch without annoying your neighbors with more flood lights. Since your watching a driveway it wont flare up reflectors either, which...

    HDW 5231R-Z night time images

    mount it to the front of your garage and that IR issue will go away, white shed might as well be a mirror directing alot of light right back in the lens from a side angle. you cant mount it like that under an overhang and looking back.. cant have any nearby surfaces to reflect IR off of.

    Long CAT 6 wire runs - repeater or router needed?

    the switches need power them selves and are not extending PoE, that is powered by the ethernet cable and actually does what you need. That one is a PoE+ one, unless your installing a PTZ you can find normal PoE ones for cheaper.

    Long CAT 6 wire runs - repeater or router needed?

    Probably cheapest and easier to hire a journeyman to come run fiber through your conduit or drop it into your trench and terminate both ends for your needs.. terminating fiber requires expensive tools tha'll rival the cost of hiring this guy for a one time use.. Single Mode fiber will link GigE...

    Long CAT 6 wire runs - repeater or router needed?

    120v in the same conduit can cause EMI that cause network dropouts and microphone issues.. depends on what else is running on that 120v leg but it is required by code to use separate conduit for high voltage and low voltage. Fiber would likely use media converter on one end or both ends...

    WD Purple 10TB

    Racks and Cabinets are best sitting or even bolted onto foundation level floors.. working in a skyrise I'd cringe when a big lard ass walked by and made the floor shake, knew they were largely to blame for the big $100+k storage array that was constantly shitting disks 10ft behind my desk, heh..

    Dahua Starlight Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-Z)

    @waketech, try out this varifocal.. zoom is the best for getting better ID, find a choke point and zoom it in as far as you can stand for most pixels.. for residential use I find there's very few places that anything wider than 6mm works for ID purposes... most of the time the distances are too...
