The 4 cameras I mentioned in the other thread are all Amcrest, (rebranded Dahua, from what I understand.) all 2.8 mm focal length. 3 of the 4 are located at choke points on my property, Two are IP5M-B1186EW-28MM bullet cameras at $55, the other two are IP5M-T1179EW-28MM turrets which were $58. The turrets have built in microphones, the bullets don’t. And, turrets are supposed to be less susceptible to spider webs, which I occasionally experience on my bullets. These cameras I expect to be effective for me because their location is consistent with the DORI principle. Tomorrow I‘ll start testing with my new EmpireTech varifocal, which is 4 times the price of these cams, but needed for some of my other locations.
My BI machine is in a different location so it will be another day for individual camera status configuration if you need it. I have included a screen capture of 12 cameras from my browser. Two cameras are offline and not shown because I am in the process of moving them and adding more cameras. Please note that server status of the BI machine is shown in the left hand lower corner. I have also included a video from a Jennov 720p camera from March this year. Let me know if you have more questions.
