I am asking some guys to test this latest new firmware before offical release, PTZ update have to be very careful, easy brick it.

Here's the firmware from Febuary 2021 that Dahua sent. I updated my camera before I knew that they can't be downgraded anymore, so it's a one-way trip. So if you do it, know you can't go back.

I didn't realize that I could just put it as an attachment to a post here until now.

Confirmed to work with the DH-SD59225U-HNI (what I have). This has a build date of 2021-02-03. If anyone can figure out how to turn off the auto-logout of the web interface with this new version, I'm all ears. Super-annoying.

So I got an IPC-T5442T-ZE through empirecandy (thanks!). I am having some issues with recordings dropping after tripwire event (using Synology Surveillance Station). But before I do any significant trouble shooting I thought I'd update the firmware. Am I correct in assuming that I can use one from Dahua site for IPC-HDW5442T-ZE ?

Did you ever get an answer or do this? I just got one of these and it can't even send e-mail. LOL. Maybe I'll try to update the firmware if I can find the correct one. Or else just return it.

Like Kaczor47 the nearest analog to the IPC-T5442T-ZE I can find on the Dahua site is the IPC-HDW5442T-ZE but the firmware files listed for that don't look anything like what my cam reports. My cam also reports that I am on the most recent, dated 10-19-2020, but I am highly skeptical that is true.

Hi kaczor & Raylo32, I have several of the IPC-T5442T-ZE from Andy at EmpireTech. These are in fact the IPC-HDW5442T-ZE on the official Dahua website. Dahua controls where/who can use it's specific model numbers, therefore EmpireTech's model designations may vary slightly. Dahau also seems to use a completely different set of model numbers for marketing in the USA. But Andy's products are the real deal.

As for firmware, my IPC-T5442T-ZE's are currently running V2.800.15OG004.0.R, Build Date: 2020-12-03 (my cameras shipped with this firmware), but I see there is a newer version on the Dahua webiste: DH_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_NP_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403. I have not tried this latest firmware from the Dahua website, nor have I seen any reviews/info on what's new. But yes, this is a correct Firmware version for the IPC-T5442T-ZE.

FYI: Andy from EmpireTech often reads these forums, but there are a constant stream of posts. In my experience, I've gotten quick responses on issues like this by direct messaging or emailing him directly.

The cam I received just a few days ago is on 2.800.15OG004.0.R, Build Date: 2020-10-19. How do we know the one you reference is the correct one for this cam? Just curious so I will know what to look for. Is the 5xxx and "ZE" suffix the key identifiers? Not sure I will upgrade right away anyway since I don't really have any issues. The worst so far is mine just caught a large dog sprinting by and detected a "human". But can live with that one. Doesn't happen very often.

The 5442 family of cameras all use the Volt chipset as far as I know. And the 5442 family uses the ZE designation to indicate a varifocal model. The firmware version I mentioned is listed on the official Dahua webpage for the model IPC-HDW5442T-ZE. Some 5 series cameras use different chipsets, so the 5XXX in the firmware title is NOT enough to determine compatibility for a particular model.

Volt and Leo.
If it's the wrong chipset it shouldn't pass the hwid check and thus wont brick.

Z means zoom, E means ePoE

Hi all.

I have a few cameras I'm looking for latest firmware for. Can anyone let me know which firmware I should use for the following cameras?
I'm not confident enough to decode the firmware filenames myself....

IPC-HDW4421EMP-AS
IPC-HDW5831R-ZE

Thanks!

Hi guys. I need som clarification regarding what file to actually use when updating. For the 5442 lineup there seems to be atleast 4 different zip-files to download.
At least from this page: IPC-HDBW5442R-ASE-NI (dahuasecurity.com)

General_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403
DH_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_NP_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403
General_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_NP_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403
DH_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403

My understanding is that DH means that the camera gets branded Dahua. Maybe the PN/NP have something to do with PAL/NTSC? If so it doesn't make sense since both are available in the settings.
When unzipping these files there are at least two files that are larger then the others.
DH_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403.bin and firmwar.bin
How do we know which one to choose? We don't want to brick anything by guessing which firmware file to upload.
Cheers, Marcus

@Magren, I updated the camera with this file: DH_IPC-HX5XXX-Volt_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.820.0000000.2.R.210403.bin

PN is for Pal and set as default, and NP means NTSC is set as default
