    Question about using IPC-Color4K-T for covert face detection

    I would agree. As much as I like my 4kt's, I think they need a mk2 with better lens & firmware or CCD (probably need more sensitivity with smaller aperture to give better dof) and they need more resources ie processor and memory as they can struggle with several enabled features and sometimes...

    Combatting Racism using a wired only camera setup

    Is the Landlord OK with you drilling holes for mounts because whatever camera you fit, you'll have to mount it securely to the brickwork. It usually requires 3 screws / wall plugs per camera. The cables can be exposed if you can't drill through the walls. ideally you'd put them in steel conduit...

    Substreams and setting quality based on number of cameras being viewed live?

    1080P @ 4,000KBS should give you a high quality sub stream if your NVR can manage it on multiple cameras on h264 / h264H, H265 (Latter can have issues not because of bit rate nut inherent issues to h265). I can't see a huge difference between it and my 4k stream @ 16,800kbs!! Then again, I've...

    Human / Face detection

    If you use BI, use trip wires in camera to causer a trigger, then filter the trigger through CPAI in BI for detection to filter the trigger into an alert. Set BI up only to record to alerts not triggers and you're golden. Don't bother with incamera AI. If youw ant to make sure you never miss...

    IPC-Color4K-X Bitrate and Synology

    Use Internet explorer to make settings. I had this issue for quite a while. It now remains on 16,832 but randomly reverted for quite a while.

    ..and I'm one of them. Better to save today and buy tomorrow than buy rubbish today and regret tomorrow. There's a lightbulb camera review on here somewhere. I seem to remember it wasn't favourable. Also PTZ's suffer tracking issues. If you want something temporary then get a Wyze cam. They're...

    IPC-Color4K-T and IPC-Color4K-T180 230227 Firmware

    I don't know if this is of any relevence, but I realised the point some time ago, that I think the cameras have insuficient resources / processing power. I had to off load a lot of features to BI to get mine stable. I'm still of the opinion, Dahua should fit a more powerful processor. That said...

    ASUS routers vulnerable to critical remote code execution flaws

    Thanks, Ill take a look at mine. Not too worried though because being a pure router, it's sat behind a modem firewall as well. So 3 firewalls, modem, router and windows. I'm guessing a few may be in that situation. That said, the more secure the better. Edit: On checking mine's an 82U so not...

    You're not likely going to get good performance from a lightbulb camera. If you can't afford a proper ptz, look at fixed cameras and build up your system over time. PTZ's bring their own problems. The 5442 series with IR are a good start. The Wiki is there for a reason, it's based on experience...

    CodeProject.AI Version 2.0

    ATM Coral is showing poor performance, not disimilar to CPU alone, at least in my experience . I'm also finding myself unable to install CPAI at all in any form on the latest BI version I have (must check for new versions) and I've re-installed a clean version of Windows twice completely wiping...

    Should I place a camera(Dahua 5442 starlight) in the corner(1 in picture) or to the left after the light(2 in picture)

    I think you need 3 cameras as the lights and lens flare / dazzle / reflection may be an issue if you start putting a camera in the corner or on the house wall by the light. Personally, I think this is one instance where a doorbell camera might be a really good idea. This is where I would...

    Remote Location Camera Powered By Solar Panels

    Cheryl, I've not done solar on CCTV, but have looked into it a lot for my pond and also a simple dawn to dusk light. There are solar calculators out there that will help you calculate your potential reuirements. One of the biggest issues with solar is running something 24/7 especially in winter...

    IPC-Color4K-T and IPC-Color4K-T180 230227 Firmware

    Had this on the 4KT version. More or less cured by a new POE switch. Still seem to get it occassionally though so not conclusively the poe switch but may be a good place to start. My advice, make sure the power budget is way more than you need and poe + or ++. That way you know each camera isn't...

    DJ-2516P NVR ... might be a Dongjia brand

    +1 Get an led bulb in the 5,500-6,500k (daylight to cool white) range with a high cri and you're good to go. Avoid very cool ones as they give blue light (luckily never come across one domestically above 6500k), and avoid traditional yellow bulbs 2,000-3,500k as they produce a yellow colour...

    Hubble Panoramic Camera

    Just make sure it;s full or golden.... Personally, I'm not overly impressed with the zoom side. It says you can clearly see the number plate. Yeah but you can't read it. Elsewhere it looks soft at the extreme zoom end eg people tracking in the stadium. I wonder if the zoom power exceeds the...

    Have you found a way to power your tablets without batteries? Constant charging destroys batteries (and could even be considered a fire hazard), yet I can't seem to find a tablet that allows you to remove or disable the battery and just run from the power adaptor. (At least without starting some...

    RV Burglary - Rant and A Few Questions

    You've nothing to lose by meeting LE. They may try and recover it for you and it puts the company on the spot to assist. There maybe a lawsuit there. Whilst they have denied liability for the theft, they haven't and probably can't deny liability for providing reasonable assistance in the event...

    RV Burglary - Rant and A Few Questions

    They only have to give him that short clip though so very unlikely anything else on there - the guys wouldn't be burgling the rv if people were about. Call law Enforcement to the yard, I presume your rv is still there, if not drive it back, park up and wait for them outside, tell them there is...

    So do you think he shot her?

    Rule number 1 - never leave place of safety Rule number 2 - don't pursue a suspect out of a place of safety - if they leave take up a defensive position and wait for the police. You follow them out and you're in the open and at any point they can turn around a corner or get cover behind an...

    So do you think he shot her?

    100% a gun. If I had to guess about the r/h cylinder, it was probably made for a left hander originally.

    So do you think he shot her?

    The problem with a rifle is over pentration. Many US homes have wooden walls and a rifle bullet could more easily exit the home and kill a passerby or neighbour with all the issues that entails. Even a .22 RF is going to punch through stud walls or wood and RF isn't going to stop a person unless...

    So do you think he shot her?

    I know a bit about guns but have no direct experience of handguns - they're banned over here. Others can probably talk better about practicalities such as slide racking forces on handguns. A good alternative to a handgun if for "in the home defence" is a shotgun. Most would recommend a pump for...

    So do you think he shot her?

    Only reason I see to get a revolver would be if you wanted .357 magnum, although even then there is 1 automatic designed to fire it (someone's college project put into production I believe). Beyond that, the issue becomes one of shot number. Revolver 6 - semi auto around 15 depending on the...

    Mike, Interesting development. I decided to repair Windows .net (using the uninstall tool) and reinstall EdgeTPU Runtime given that I'm reading someone has processing times of 75ms over on the BI forums. I rebooted between repair/ re-installation / removal / re-installation respectively...

    So do you think he shot her?

    I zoomed right in. The gun is safe. He's carrying it by the very bottom of the grip and the cylinder appears open. That said, bizarre way to carry as you said.
