    Dashcam captures thieves, but quality is too low

    I guess I was thinking along the lines of ID'ing the vehicle. I'm making assumptions -- can't ID the guy if the police don't know who he is, right? Or are you saying there's enough to see on the truck to ID it? Thanks.

    What do you mean tag? License plate?

    Dashcam captures thieves, but quality is too low

    Reminder that if you're going to buy something, buy something quality. Happened while he was at the hospital visiting his wife, and son in the NICU. One of the doors no longer locks. Got off with a radio and a toolbag. Scumbags. Question time: If he got a plate capture, is this enough to...

    OK cool. I'm glad nothing is glaringly wrong or obvious then!

    T568A or B?

    It's the internet. We have to argue when possible. Right? :lol:

    T568A or B?

    Federal contracts are written by people who have no flippin' clue what they are talking about.:smash: (OK that might be an over-generalization, but just my personal bias and experience talking). I have seen while searching the same thing, that "it says to use 568A for federal contract work"...

    T568A or B?

    I started making Ethernet cables in 1999. I've done it for various gov't facilities, military bases, and commercial companies. I've never seen any location or person using the 568A standard. I've heard something along the lines of 568A was compatible with older USOC wiring, and 568B was the...

    Front door, flat house, vinyl siding ideas? (pics)

    Revisiting this thread now that I've got the Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-Z running up on a test stand. Keep in mind for this testing, the camera is about 6" further out from the house than it will be when installed. Current lens height is 5'6" above the landing, or, 6'10" above the walkway. For...

    Front door cam, fishing and mounting, vinyl siding

    @guykuo Thanks so much for all the details and tricks, those are great! Fortunately at least in my particular situation, I was able to take pics inside the walls before they were buttoned up. It's been really helpful with things. Hopefully today I'll be able to punch through the wall and floor...

    Front door cam, fishing and mounting, vinyl siding

    I'm glad you mentioned this method. I'd seen some posts during my research that showed cutting an access hole and then fishing through the top and bottom, and using a low-voltage old-work box w/ faceplate. I can handle the drywall repair, but this would be so much less work. I sat there for a...

    Should I be making camera setting changes directly or through NVR?

    Dahua NVR, Dahua cams. I've noticed that I can make changes both in the NVR and when logged directly into the camera. Is there a preference to where the changes are made, and why? Thanks.

    Front door cam, fishing and mounting, vinyl siding

    This is probably the easiest. The rest require me running the other POE switch to the garage and then branching out of that.

    Front door cam, fishing and mounting, vinyl siding

    My thought is to mount this mounting plate to the vinyl siding, attaching it to the sheathing using the 3 red locations, which are opposite the locations the PFA137 box will mount (6, 2, 10 o'clock locations). I was thinking of using counter-sunk screws so they would sit flush. Agree? Better...

    Front door cam, fishing and mounting, vinyl siding

    Before I start making holes, I want to make sure my plan is solid. This cam is going to be posted to the left of the front door, between the door casing and the shutter. The Cat6 cable will be running down into the basement. I will need a hole drilled through the 2x6 sill plate and into the...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    Yeah they are pretty big. I'm going to work on the camera next to the front door first. I had a hell of a time locally sourcing vinyl siding wall mount plates. I'm honestly really disappointed that I can't find what I need locally. Home Depot had this, which perfectly fits the profile of my...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    So I got lots of good information, but still wondering exactly how to seal up the holes in vinyl siding/house sheathing. Can any anyone give a rundown on exactly how one of these vinyl siding mounting blocks will be installed? Builders Edge 6.625 in. x 6.625 #001 White Triple 3-Surface...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    Thanks @CCTVCam. Going to try and run it out of the siding and see if I can work it that route. If I end up needing to go through the foundation wall, I'll take a look at some new equipment!

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    Haha found my ugly yard. So I was playing with IPVM (before) and came up with these locations for the street by putting in the values for the cameras I was using, with the hopes of getting the best coverage on the street. I'll check out your locations (temp, cam on a stick) as well and see...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    Not yet. I had a bigger plan for where I was going to mount my NVR, but that plan got shot full of holes, so I'm just getting things set up semi-permanently now. I've had the stuff sitting around too long. Just fired up the NVR, but my monitor is on my mining rig now, so I need to pick up...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    Yeah the house is fully finished at this point, builders are long gone now. Basement is unfinished, I have access to everything from below. I've moved in (4 years ago haha). Good questions -- to save retyping things, I'll just link my previous threads if you don't mind. (I need to go re-read...

    Sealing holes in concrete and vinyl siding

    That is awesome @blake. I'll try conventional means but I may end up needing a new toy, especially when I get out to the garage. Thanks for posting that. Just noticed this while reading::lol: * Note*** Designed for Professionals only, not designed for DIY applications. Do not use this at home

    Camera monitors

    Awesome. I need to pick up a monitor for my NVR and was overwhelmed by the options available. I know I don't need anything crazy, but, don't want junk either. I'll check out that Asus.
