    DAHUA TiOC IVS misses human intrusions

    Hi, I have a little problem with the Dahua TiOC cameras (5Mp, bullet and turret). Well, while fully aware of the fact that the general recommended height is above 3m I choose to mount mines at about 6m height. I know, I know...

The 6mm fixed lens is triggering constantly, I assume due to reflections and/or shadows. This is strange, as I have not had issues with the other camera. I assume this is due...
