I have mostly fixed lens cams now 4k resolution from Hikvision (G2), HIkvision DS-2DE4A425IW-DE with smart tracking and a few generic auto tracking ones which do work, but I wish for better night time tracking. I ordered OEM Dahua with auto tracking to try out, but is there any other options that would be worth considering under $1k?

Which model did you get from Dahua, they have 3-4 models under $1k

The one you have already ordered is one of the best options going. Don't update the firmware when you get it or you will lose the auto tracking function.
Isn't this cam 4 years old? Thought there would be something newer

The 49225 is the best option under $400 and is still decent with 2MP on the 1/2.8" sensor. You won't find a better one under $500.

The SD5A425XA-HNR is better and is 4MP on a 1/1.8" sensor, but is $750

After that on Dahua you are over $1k

Haha .....I can not say 1 bad thing about the 49225 for its performance and price point. I think what people forget is the camera is one of Dahua's bottom line budget PTZ cams and people expect to much I think.

@ljw2k - have you posted vids with the new PTZ? I do not recall seeing those. I remember your 49225 and SD5A videos.

I will only get the new Hik when this sells and to be honest not in any rush.
