    I have 6 of these cameras (IPC-HDW5231R-Z) and two of them are noticeably more blurry than the other 4. I'd like to upgrade the firmware and see if that does anything, but since they go through my NVR (NVR5216-16P-4KS2) I can't seem to connect to them through the "configtool". What are people doing to upgrade the firmware who are using NVR's? Is there any other tricks to fix the blurry issue?

    Clean them and readjust the focus.

    I was just able to figure it all out...had to upgrade the firmware via USB on the NVR, and re-adjusted focus. Looks much better! Thanks.

    Is the time overlay stuck in the top right on these cameras?
    I don't see an option to move it to bottom left.

    Log into the camera.
    Under Camera, select Video, and then the Overlay Tab

    Adjust at will.

    Thanks. I was using Brave and it was blocking the plugin.

    Just a heads up that the 5231R-Z model being discussed in this thread has been replaced by the newer 5231R-ZE discussed in this thread:
    Review-Dahua Starlight IPC-HDW5231R-ZE 800 meter capable ePOE
