    I think you will find the main difference between these two models is the Illumination. IPC-HFW5442T-AS-LED Full-color / LED Illumination IPC-HFW5442T-ASE - ePoE model with IR Illumination

    EmpireTech's got Hikvision Cameras?! (IPC-T2347G-LU)

    EDIT: An "Always on light" that can be turned OFF is not an "Always on light". Someone please explain the concept of on and off to this guy. :P In the video you posted it shows the LED lights can be turned on and off and adjusted via camera GUI. (@6:49) I also checked local pricing. I found...

    Budget System Advice

    IMO you need to get this done by a professional. There are more pros than cons for getting this setup done in the correct manner.It does not have to cost a fortune. If the new system lasts another 12 years its not going to cost you much more than $1-2 per day. There are a few guys on IPCT, in...

    Recommendations for a showy camera (maybe WIFI) or even a fake

    He is right. In Australia, it's illegal to do your own fixed home cabling. Any under-floor, in-wall or in-roof cabling must be done by a registered cabler. If you had to pay someone to do a drop you would expect to pay between $100-150 per drop.lol

    EmpireTech's got Hikvision Cameras?! (IPC-T2347G-LU)

    EmpireTech's got Hikvision Cameras?! (IPC-T2347G-LU)

    First I thought I was going mad. Spotted a few Hikvision Cameras on Andy's Aliexpress store. Empiretech only sells Dahua Cams right? ...... I shot Andy off a message to find out what was going on. He showed me some color low light footage of this new IPC-T2347G-LU . Mind blown! Ordered one on...
