    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    Ranging from darn near to perfect , thx all for the advice. will keep tweaking a little every day but much closer today than i was at the start. For those that read this later what ended up helping, bumping contrast and lowering sharpness and lowering to 1/1000. also switched to natural...

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    I lowered iris a little to see how that does, but if it makes it worse i'll bump it back up and try upping the noise reduction a little.

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    Cranked up gain and iris a bit (a lot a bit with iris) and 1:2 so far. time to tinker more. But that one that did come in looked much more like your all's plates. looks like the lighted was almost too light, so will turn down iris a bit and see how it works

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    hah, now with my latest adjustments, got the plate of this one, but thing i found funny is it doesn't even see the tail lights which were on when the car passed based on my other camera :D Had the sharpness high and contract low which probably caused some of my issues. new settings below...

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    I don't disagree it seems like the IR doesn't reach that far on this camera, you'd think a camera's IR would be designed to reach the practical range of the camera >.> how do you power the illuminator?

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    I might try changing iframe fps at night. I would have assumed lowering fps would lead to blurriness, what does lowering it tend to do? I'm using home assistant to handle day night, and have modded it to also control changing focus but found that was being handled by the profile change...

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    so here are some samples with the latest settings. The one having trouble could be the unreflective, but i think these are all the same plate. Actually, as i type this, i think the settings for that third picture (my test run) aren't what was used in the last 2, i mustnot have hit save >.> I...

    i am controlling it switching to night using home assistant, and yes as you see in the first post i am using b&w did some more testing tonight, dropped it down to 1/1000, and cranked the NR/gain/iris down a lot and seems to be doing "ok" will have to see a couple other cars go through other...

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    We only have back plates in this state, the both plates looked to be illuminated but hard to tell from the overview camera. it is 100% when a vehicle is moving quickly it is blurred. I'll attempt your setting which increases 2d noise reduction, lower 3d, and a bit more gain. The cameras...

    Hoping for some advice on some adjustments I can make to my LPR camera

    hey wittaj, 2 from this evening. 1 very visible, the other a completely mess, maybe an hour difference between the two. The one that was clear was going much slower than a normal vehicle, and the blurry was going probably faster (which the cars i'd probably care about will be probably driving...

    Is it possible to have the IVS one one camera to tell another camera to record.

    Ok, thank you. No interest in blue iris though, so thanks though.

    Is it possible to have the IVS one one camera to tell another camera to record.

    I have recently been working on using a z12e for recording license plate capture. With the z12e zoomed in that much it doesn't recognize the motion events of vehicles passing by. I have a 5442 in an overview position with IVS successfully identifying cars about to enter the field of view of...

    Looking for feedback and testing of my Dahua Home Assistant integration (via HACS)

    For those using this, I was needing to adjust zoom/focus on my z12e and made a modification to call that service (if you want to modify your install to do the same) https://github.com/rroller/dahua/issues/205

    I set up the events on the camera (and double checked them on the NVR) not sure where the generic motion detecion shows on the nvr.

    Not getting motion or IVS events

    Yeah figured that about smd not working that close, surprised regular motion should be working though. And recording 24x7 with a dahua nvr, not getting the events there either. Recording events also to a local sd card

    Amazon Prime Day

    While there are a couple decent sales, The vast majority of prime day is a glorified garage sale (essentially businesses selling things for large discounts that they couldn't sell normally to just get rid of). But you get a good deal on some 5442 ze's i'd be game :) (or any refurbed 5442 turrets)

    Looking for purchase advice for new home

    So, this is why you wait till you own a house before you start figuring out these questions. I just remembered as i drove through the neighborhood that there are going to be street treets, so i don't even know if i'll have a clear LOS to the end of the street anyway :D Ended up asking andy for...

    Looking for purchase advice for new home

    yeah i have to hold off on the bullets, until get farther in build process to see if they'd even look ok with the house elevation (don't need HOA throwing a hissy). Thinking at this moment, grab 3 t2431t-as 2 for close range and 1 for toddler monitoring. Then will just use a 5231 for one of...

    Looking for purchase advice for new home

    Sadly i think the wife will push against a bullet camera, think i may do two 5442t-ze's in the front for general coverage and not worry about LPR. Then may pick up some of the cheaper turrets on his refurbished, maybe the fixed ones, to cover more directly over doors/closer areas to the house...
