    Another Dashcam Video

    This lady should go self isolate for the sake of everyone else. Luckily no one was behind me. Geeze, hardly anyone else on the road and she still manages to pull out in front of me.

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Expungement is not an option for a state jail felony in my state, or something like that. I've looked to up over and over and the only way my rights can be restored is with a pardon. So highly unlikely.

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Hmm it sounds like the update released today (5.2.1.0 Assign sources and zones to action set actions) allows you tie specific zones to specific actions. So looks like this would also help accomplish what I am trying to do. For now I have just masked off the street in my cameras. Have to think...

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Well I think part of the problem with the "spam" alerts is me. Probably even the whole problem! I figured I want as many email alerts as possible if something were to happen. Let's say someone walked in and broke into the house and stole all my equipment. I know unlikely scenario but still...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    For me, I saw their post on facebook and followed the instructions in the post. The post was removed shortly after I responded to it. Here is the account it was posted from. May be worth messaging them and asking if their are any more testers being sought out...

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE and PFA137. I bought from Andy. Sorry too lazy to hunt down any links right now but let me know if more info is desired.

    A junction box is not required. A junction box is used to provide space where the pigtail can live. The RJ45 connectors are bulky, especially when using the weatherproof thingies. If you don't use one you either have to drill a hole large enough for these connectors or leave the...

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Oh, I didn't literally mean the spam folder. I guess I like the idea of having the notifications because I want to be alerted anytime anything happens (anytime a human is in view) but I end up ignoring the alerts because I get busy. I may need to try push notifications for certain events...

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    The problem with that is I'd get a push everytime my girl came home in the middle of the day. This quickly would turn into spam much like my Sentry emails. Seems no matter how good one can tune the alerts they eventually turn to spam. I've been super busy at work and I'm not really supposed...

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    The WU station ID I was using is offline. Switched to another one and all good. Count me in as being another dummy. Lol. So much for me being a good Sys Admin. To be fair I was too lazy/busy with other stuff to have a look before today. Lol

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    I'm getting the same. Too busy (lazy?) to uninstall/reinstall myself lol. Was hoping it would clear up by itself to be honest.

    He had a paleta in his hand as a matter of fact. My fiancee noticed that it was off that he had a paleta and a towel in hand. Lol

    Yes indeed. My Fiancee and I talked about that. We are truly lucky she did not stumble into a violent or deadly situation.

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Yes I am renting and I keep saying I'm going to buy a house so don't want to install any more cams. He would have shown up on an indoor cam had he walked inside. I'm OK with that blindspot for now. Not ideal but it is what it is I suppose. When we buy our own house boy oh boy is it going to...

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Yes, I actually had my fiancee call and report it right away. She called right away with the plate and info and said they were going to send some police officers out or what not. I have not had time yet to check if any cops passed by.

    Was not Floridaman this time. It was Texas man.

    Good idea. I'll start checking my Sentry reports and have a scrub through my alerts tomorrow morning.

    Patrick knows he is here...(we don't have any Patrick's here). That he is meeting Patrick to get his Nintendo Switch. That he had only been here one time before.

    What do you think? Personal pulls all the way into my driveway!!!

    Listening to the audio he did get out of the car and knock. My dog starts barking from inside and then coincidentally my fiancee pulls up like 1 minute later.

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    I think I forgot the pics on my previous post. Shows up kind of purple on my phone cam, in real life looks a little red and less noticable IMO. Notice I did not post a B&W pic as I'm getting a lot of overexposure due to the IR bouncing off of the soffit area. I need to point the camera down...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    Yes, IR is always going to be visible unless marketed otherwise. I forget the spectrum that is not visible, but I would think their is a reason most vendors are using the visible spectrum. Also FWIW, the camera seems to stay in color mode for my while I have everything left at the default...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    As @fenderman stated, there just is not enough room. To be fair I only tried it very briefly with the waterproofed connector installed and no way it was going to fit, but I believe irregardless it may be too tight of a fit even without the waterproof connector. Also I think it would be silly...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    Well I'm probably one of the last ppl to ask about the physical install. If you are going to use a junction box then the hole only needs to be a little bit thicker than an ethernet cable. If not then you may need to make the hole a little bigger to fit the female ethernet connector in the wall...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    One thing I did notice is that the build quality is noticeably different than my other dahua cams. Like my IPC-HDW5231R-Z has metal parts, this amcrest has plastic parts. It seems to be much lighter, a little smaller, the pigtail seems much lighter and more hollow than my 5231's pigtail. The...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    I just sent them a crappy video of me unboxing the camera with one hand and rambling on about my initial reaction. I didn't care about the quality of the video, just the refund lol. They gave it to me already. They should have specified if they wanted a good quality video lol. And hmm I...

    I got a free IP5M-T1179EW-28MM from Amcrest - Same Menu's as Dahua?

    How is it that the menu's are almost exactly the same as the Dahua camera's that I own? I find this kind of odd. Is this a rebranded Dahua in any way, shape or form? I saw a post from Amcrest that stated they would give anyone this camera for "free" in exchange for a video of either an...

    Dashcam - How do you not see a full-size pickup?

    Dashcam is a Viofo A129 Duo. This was on the way home to pick up my daughter from school. I do not believe they hit or I would have stopped and offered up the footage. Regretted not stopping to verify as soon as I pulled into the house but my main concern at the time was getting my daughter...

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Yeah they weren't happy at all with the service. I've never used it but I can imagine. They said they installed the cameras because his other truck had two bullet holes in it. I need to really save up and get out of the hood! Lol

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Yeah, she was watching the kids on a swing set out of view. I believe she went back and grabbed the kids and then went to tell her husband (son of the truck owner). Took a couple minutes for the family to get outside and have a look. They also have a camera facing that direction. They said...

    Neighbor Hit and Run

    Pretty sure this was a visitor as I haven't seen this vehicle before. This house (where the car is coming from) has a lot of visitors if you know what I mean. I gave the export to the neighbors son. It's his dad's truck who is elderly. Wish I had a camera that captures license plates but...
