    New here, need camera/lens advice, please rate my security plan

    For me personally, it's too easy for someone to come over the fence or from the other neighbours garden. I think I'd put the 6mm just above the doorbell looking out towards you car and the 2.8mm on the brick outcrop between your house and the neighbour to your right (left in the photo) with the...

    Ford truck danger!

    I think I confused your neighbours front with yours. It's his video where they're smashing the cans. Don't know your front layout.

    Less Bandwidth?

    Sorry wrong command. Meant to say use Trace Route (tracert). So for example: tracert www.ipcamtalk.com This should ping every hop to the end server.

    Less Bandwidth?

    Have you tried running a ping test from a laptop connected wirelessly? This might show the latency between the mesh connections. As you're IT I'm ure you knwo how to do this but for everyone else, click on the windows icon bottom left of wwindows, type "Run" in the windows search bar tht pops...

    Ford truck danger!

    Yes. Look at the tow bar, very distinctive gooseneck style design. Also, it's a Texas registration although as you said probably stolen. Again, from your other video, you need a dedicated LPR pointed sufficiently down the road that the angle gets a clear shot of the plates. ATM it looks as if...

    Stolen Van

    Looks like you need a dedicated LPR camera. Pity the one camera you had that got a good view of the truck behind had a broken stream as the truck drove by, although it's doubtful in the conditions given the zoom and resolution whether the License Plate would have been retreivable. From what I...

    Review-OEM 4mp AI Cam IPC-T5442TM-AS Starlight+

    I agree Fender although 3 reports of the same fault on 1 forum does give me some cause for concern given the small sample of owners.

    Review-OEM 4mp AI Cam IPC-T5442TM-AS Starlight+

    Matter of perspective. 3 users now reporting issues. I'd say that poentially indicates a quality control problem. That said, 3 out of how many? Either way, needs addressing. I wouldn't personally want to buy one if I was seeing the reports of failures we're currecntly seeing. 1 person, yes...

    DVR Constantly Restarts itself every 30-40 seconds. Please help.

    Yep the unit will only draw as much power as it needs, it's getting the correct voltage and a power rating that exceeds the maximum drawn that matters. It's like a pc, once you get over the max system draw limit eg 400W, it doesn't matter if you stick a 450W or 1,500W PSU in, or anything in...

    Motion detected but recording not triggered

    In the UK the Noise Abatement Officer will do that for him. They will assess the situation, decide if any laws have been broken, if there are, they will come out and take measurements using their equipment and probably film video as well, then speak to the neighbour and probably advise them of...

    DS-2CD3345-I video quality compare to an equivalent Dahua

    As Fender said you get what you pay for. A better way forward would be to buy cameras such as the PC-T5442TM-AS, but buy less of them. Start off small with a few then add then as you can afford them. Nothing you buy in the $50 range will even come close. There was a recent model sub $100 camera...

    Motion detected but recording not triggered

    For abusing him with a megaphone, be aware that may result in you getting sued for nuisance or arrested for provoking a breach of the peace should he report it to the local police! Best advice, contact your local council. They will have a noise abatement officer who will be both knowedgeable in...

    Need Help Recovering Corrupt Video files and got into an Accident

    For a start get rid of the battery and buy the super capacitor pack. It's only around $10 but is far more suited to daschcam use than a battery. Batteries will fail from constant charging and can catch fire in hot cars. A SC will not. Secondly, you need to bear in mind when choosing an SD card...

    BI CPU usage increases gradually after the process starts

    Sounds typical of a memory leak. Suggest you check the program / driver versions and update.

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    Yeah that is quite a flat curve. Definately some improvement. Used to be terrible away from 80% load. I'm guessing he'll see the lower figure with system draw though as I reckon it's probably around 550-600 watts.

    Ordered Sony SNC-VB770 Image Sensor Size 35MM :)

    Didn't relaise it was that expensive. Yes must have it confused with another camera price wise. TBH, on price it's a bit of a con when you consider you can pick up the Sony A7S DSLR with a similar if not the same sensor for as little as $1,500.

    Video Of Blower Being Stolen From My Gardeners Truck

    Have to start wondering now if he's a liability. If your property got burgled and he saw the perps, is he going to deny it? Very strange that he doesn't want to report the loss of the item. It screams to me stolen or illegal worker. Why else would you not want to report the loss of such an...

    Ordered Sony SNC-VB770 Image Sensor Size 35MM :)

    It shouldn't need light. Unless these were fiddled, this is a video I found on Youtube and posted on here several years ago. The light gathering of these cameras is fantastic if you can afford the 2.5K Price:

    3990X & Blueirs thoughts ?

    Puzzled as to why you'd want such a large PSU unit. You are aware that efficiency is often much lower than quoted figures if the unit is running less than the full load or one of the other test values? Bigger isn't always best. You're efficiency could dip below 60% at the kind of loads you're...

    Lady with BOLT CUTTERS?

    It's starting to sound like Cludeo. It was the lady with the bolt cutters, in the garden.....or then again was it the dog standing on two legs with the lead piping?

    Looking for suggestions on a DVR

    I'm happy to be corrected but if the data rate is set to 8mbs then my understanding is that's the maximum it can use per second. Logic suggests, if you divide the data rate per second by the number of frames per second then you have an approximation of the compression to each frame (not strictly...

    Looking for suggestions on a DVR

    More FPS doesn't equal better quality. It equals smoother motion. As I understand it, the higher the frame rate, the more compressed each frame is and the lower the quality of the still you can pull from it. Maths wise, @ 8mbs, @12 fps = 8/12 mbs for each frame. @120 fps = 8 / 120 mbs for each...

    Parabolic Microphones,

    A satellite dish is usually a true parabola focused on where the feed horn / LNB goes. Maybe a cheap source.

    High CPU since last week BI update

    Thermal paste typically lasts around 3-5 years with 8 years around the top limit for the newest and best pastes, so it depends on how old the system is. After that it can dry out and crack and become less thermally conductive. The best thermal paste these days is liquid metal but it's a real...

    I thought it was a magpie after shiny things. I managed to stop the video on the exact frame at 5 secs. Amazing how it forms the shape.

    Video Of Blower Being Stolen From My Gardeners Truck

    I don't think you'd get a conviction in the UK with that video. Over here they'd just say it wasn't them. Without crystal clear video the police probably would drop the case unless there was other rock solid evidence. The crux here in the UK might be if the children admitted it, although being...

    Video Of Blower Being Stolen From My Gardeners Truck

    I agree. It makes me wonder if maybe your gardener acquired it himself. I know you said both cameras are the same, it must be the lighting because the 2nd angle from the U turn is superb. Good plate and facial shot. BTW does the gardener have to press charges? I know if the UK, although it's...

    Dahua 4K PTZ DH-SD8A820WA-HNF

    Looks great don't touch it. Maybe you hit the hyperfocal distance by accident. However, for reference for anyone who doesn't manage to hit the sweet spot, if it came down to choosing an area to be sharp, I'd choose the road in front of your house to the corner. corner. Whilst it's great having a...
