20 total with four doing duty as LPR cameras. Three of them are PTZ cameras. Only one of the PTZ's in the front of the house is setup to do tracking. Another in the front of the house and the back of the house that allow me to zoom in on something interesting such as overnight campers and other goings on that need looking into. The others cover the 4 sides of the house. Here is a picture of the setup on my TV which is now outdated, but it gives you and idea.View attachment 90001.
If you look behind the speaker on the left you will see a white small form computer. It is hooked up to my LAN and the video output is one of the television inputs. I have Hikvsion IVMS-4200 downloaded on it so I can view my NVR's and display the video on the TV.How did you get the cameras to the TV, that's pretty neat.
I have 13 active, 1 wireless, 12 POE all running on BI on an ESXi VM. The trick about enabling the substream really helped and the cpu is typically < 60%.
I have some inside cams but they are all disconnected because I'm lazy.
My favorite is my attic cam that I use to detect when the mice are coming back in for the winter. It just sits there awaiting for a trigger.
omg. the fallout was horrendous. I was lucky I was a contractor - so I got free of that mess. honestly, I dont' know what happened to the environment. I wanted to get my hands on the 10g switches and the 10G PCie cards for the servers. But that was 2 years ago. In the end I escaped with my hide and a paycheck.
