    even an 8mp camera zoomed out to give you a 90 degree fov wont give you a high quality image at that distance. you will need two cameras.

    If you haven't already, give IPVM Camera Calculator V3 a whirl. You should be able to use it to pull up a Google map image of your property, then you can drop/position specific model cameras on the map and then see estimated camera images from various distances.

    You can also look at Dahua's DORI specs (usually listed on the camera's spec page) for a rough idea. For the 8MP varifocal turret, zoomed all the way out to 2.7mm (which is 110'), it shows the "identify" range is 28ft. You mentioned 85-90', so that will extend the "identify" range out a little bit .. maybe 40-50ft? A lot of folks feel here that Dahua's DORI specs are overly optimistic, so I wouldn't expect to get as many feet as they say.

    Thanks, I did check out the ivpm tool and found that pretty much all of my solution options weren’t going to be adequate enough.

    Agree with fenderman. You need two cameras. That's what I wound up doing after trying to cover the area with an 8mp

    Roger that, except I think it's going to take 3 or 4 cameras...
