    Hi, I know wifi should be the dead last option but we tried fishing ethernet through the walls but it was a mess to get to the 2nd floor and drilling a hole in the floor isn't an option. Has anyone ever used a bulb socket splitter then a bulb to outlet adapter successfully with a Dahua 1 amp...

    Dahua, Single Mount, Dual-Camera?

    On a typical corner of a home, I suspect that it's optimal coverage to have two cams mounted, with different views. Is there a single Dahua cam that fits two 5231 or 5442 level cams in a single housing? I think it might look better cosmetically. Thanks, R

    My UNIFI switch was showing one of my POE devices as “Zhejiang 38:21” with a vendor label as “Zhejiang”. Have you ever noticed that on your Dahua cams? I do see that name associated with Dahua but I was surprised to see it.

    Why does the Dahua firmware upgrade process suck?

    The procedure for Dahua firmware upgrades really sucks. Jumping through the hoops..... 1) locate the firmware and DL; 2) Log into cam GUI; 3) save config; 4) reboot cam; 5) install new firmware; 6) factory reset; 7) find your cam on a subnet you are not normally using; 8) update settings...

    Has anyone gotten a Dahua camera to work in iVMS-4500?

    Hey, I have a friend who bought some Dahua IP cams. He already uses iVMS-4500 for his Hikvision DVR, which I've gotten to work with off-brand IP cameras but never a Dahua camera. I would rather not tell him he has to get a new app to view his new cameras, so I thought I'd ask to see if anyone...

    I have 3 IP8M-2496E cameras. They're all behaving differently even with same configuration. Is there a way to fully reset the camera? Apparently soft and hard reset doesn't do it. I "think" the irreversible change happened when I had an Amcrest NVR and it configured the camera. I've since...
