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

    I agree. And it would be nice to have a Dahua-provided repository of firmware for each camera to be able to roll back.

    Face detection can be hit, miss or sniff

    Not a face but not a dog sniffing another dog's ass, either!

    Face detection can be hit, miss or sniff

    That's the camera adjusting te picture for the face captures. It threw me off at first, as well.

    First off, thanks for everything you do, @Wildcat_1 Your reviews, videos and help on the forum is an amazing resource. Enough asskissing. Lol For me, 10 minutes is a good length for the videos. As @looney2ns pointed out, having the camera settings more visible would be helpful. And like...

    Police chase down my street

    Face detection can be hit, miss or sniff

    My N85EFN2 (Color 4k/x) caught this the other day and thought it was a human face. But overall, it's working great. The video "pulses" as the camera does face capture. In total, it captured 3 faces and the ass sniffing in that clip.

    RJ45 Ethernet connection issues

    I was thinking about this the other day and I have an idea. Instead of "pulling" the cable from the NVR/switch, "push" it instead! That is to say, sit on your couch and make a connection on a long cable. Get up on your ladder and feed the cable towards the NVR/switch. It will be much easier...

    CONNECT PC TO TV

    I second this. I use a similar HDMI extender to connect my bedroom TV to my NVR. Works great with a wireless mouse.

    Yes, I saw that and it looks a bit onerous to do but does work, like you say. Thanks so much for the help and direction! I'll keep you updated!

    BoobieCam Planned Installation

    Did some quick snaps of the other cameras to show the coverage of the front of the house. Camera 1 (Color4K/X): In the upper left, cameras 2 and 12 (PTZ) can be seen. The black device is an IR illuminator. Camera 2 (IPC-HFW2431S): Camera 12 (SD1404XB): The spotter cams point the PTZ...

    BoobieCam Planned Installation

    Thank you for your input. Great points which I didn't cover in my initial post. 1) Yes, there's a lot more going on on the opposite side of the column. Currently, everything is covered with other cameras. But this brings us to point 2. 2) I chose the column over the wall because of...

    Wall of shame

    I did this first time I opened a camera to see how feasible it would be to change the lens. Fortunately, it was just the connector for the IR LED and I just mounted the camera where I wouldn't need IR. I've since learned that it's uneasier to unscrew the IR LED from the body than try and...

    BoobieCam Planned Installation

    Instead of continuing to hijack another thread, I'll post what I want to accomplish with pictures of the planned installation and the zones I need covered. We will be using the 2x 4MP BoobieCam. Here's what I want to accomplish: To have a clear view of both my front door and the gate from the...

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    This cam is just for the front door and walkway. The view in front of the cam is already covered by another camera so I'm not worried. But I'll try the 3.6mm first as it gets me a bit closer to the faces I want to store. Opening my Airbnb soon and I need to know who is coming and going.

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    Thanks so much. This won't be an issue as I'm only interested in the front door and the walkway to the door. The camera will be right in the middle. Going to order the camera with 3.6mm lenses. I have a couple 2.8mm lenses that I have lying around. I can swap either or both the lenses on...

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'll need close to 90. My front entrance is well-lit so I'm not worried about going to IR. I was looking at the 4K-Colour-T180 but it doesn't seem to do face detection. Shame since it would be perfect for this location. ePTZ is an amazing capability I hope we see...

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    I scanned this thread but I haven't seen maximum angle adjustment for the lenses. Planning to install it and would like to point each lens almost 90 degrees to each side. Need to cover the front door and walkway to the door for face detection purposes.

    SD1A404XB: Face detection beast

    Hit a milestone yesterday. 1000+ captures in less than 24 hours with this one camera. My Color4K/X does FD about 12 hours a day before it goes into IVS. To be clear, there's multiple shots of the same person, especially if they're on a motorcycle or bicycle. And not all captures are human...

    For those that do not know...use IE browser for Dahua (and others?) camera GUI to see more options

    I've read a number of thread like this one. I'm a 20+ year Linux user and I have no issues using Firefox without any plugins. Maybe I'm missing options but I don't believe so.

    Looking for advice on my install locations.

    Cuban Classic Cars

    I hijacked someone's thread so I'm going to make my own. Living in Havana, there's tonnes of classic cars, not all American either, in various conditions, that pass by my place daily. I'm not a car guy but I know some folks like to try to identify the car. This beast went by last night at...

    Gotcha. There are people who are far more knowledgeable than I who can come up with a solution. Through the Dahua API, you may be able to find a proper trigger.

    South American motorcycle robbery gone wrong

    No. The one I tried to link had two criminals on a motorcycle stop two pedestrians on a sidewalk and attempt to rob them. Plot twist: One of the pedestrians knew kung Fu and took down both the motorcycle driver and his dimwitted accomplice.

    South American motorcycle robbery gone wrong

    It's a FB link but worth watching. Typical South American robbery by two people on a motorcycle. They both end up getting their respective asses handed to them. https://fb.watch/ifOkE5kbjL/?mibextid=VhDh1V
