    Can I rotate video in Blue Iris if I mount this cam on the ceiling ? Amcrest 4MP UltraHD Indoor WiFi Camera

    Hi all, Just wondering if I purchase this Amcrest camera that is supposed to sit on a surface like a table, if I can use BlueIris to rotate the video feed 180 degrees while watching the live feed. I have a good area where I could mount this outside near my front door where it never gets wet. (...

    New Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-36MM graphical glitches and freezing runs hot?

    Hi everyone, I saw this drop to 59.99 on Amazon and figured I would try it as I am more interested in the audio than video quality to see when the mailperson comes or what happens with deliveries like when a loud thump is heard. When setting it up I noticed it was running warm to the touch vs my...

    Dahua HDW5832R-ZE, Amcrest MT2544EW, Lorex LBE8974

    Can anyone tell me the real difference between the Dahua HDW5831R-ZE and the Amcrest MT2544EW and the Lorex LNE8974? Other than IV features, is the Dahua better? Does the Dahua produce a better image? Why does the Lorex have so much more IR range? It is real range or are they padding the specs?

    Amcrest firmware updates from 12/18/19

The version stayed the same, the time stamp changed at the end of the filename. Also...

    Wifi camera recommendation

    Hi, I am looking for suggestions on a WIFI camera. I know WIFI is not recommended (I have read the wiki). The camera is to send an image to a server at a fairly low rate (1-5 times a minute) so 100% connectivity is not crucial. – Wifi connectivity – IP64 or better (waterproof for...

    How to disable a PTZ tour on startup on Amcrest camera?

    I happen to have an Amcrest camera - the IP3M-941 which is essentially the same as IP2M-841.
