    Different Way to Transport Server.............

    This is the first time that I've ever seen a server transported this way. This was an old server that one of my clients asked me to dispose of. I scrapped it for parts, pulled the 5 HDD's, memory and RAID controller, and then set it at the bottom of my yard. There are usually people that pick up...

    I need some advice with optimizing my settings on my Amcrest Cameras for color mode at night. I have tweaked some of the settings already by reading others advice on this forum such as 3DNR, etc. which has really helped.

    Using PTZ Verifocal Camera as LPR

    Hi all, I know that this is a stretch but I’m curious to see if anyone else has been able to use a PTZ with a verifocal lens as a LPR for vehicles traveling both directions instead of using two cameras. What I’m thinking is that this could be achieved by having two presets, one for cars...
