    For sure I will
    First have to check all for functionality, because most cartons got smashed on transport. Hopefully nothing is damaged.
    Then I'll have to find the perfect place for each cam and will need another mount for my SD49225, because Andy sent me the PFB302S instead of the PFB303S

    I'm gonna use the SmartPSS NVR software on my HP Microserver for video en snapshot recording,
    But do you guys advice to also add local storage to the camera?
    And if Yes, how much? My camera supports 128Gb Micro SD.

    I always use local storage. SD slot is a criteria when I choose a cam. I add 64GB Samsung Evo+ for about 20€ each in my cams. Best price/GB and good performance.
    So i have a Backup for events if the NVR goes down or something. For the PoE powered cams connected to the NVR it is only for backup purpose if the record fails or an intruder damages the NVR but don't take the cams with him etc.
    But will also test the cluster function of the NVR shortly. My 8TB Purple just arrived

    was that shipped in one large box ?
    I ordered the remaining mounts I need from Andy and I think he sends 3 shipments. I hope no tax again...

    Yep, only one package. Maybe the reason why a lot of the cartons had been smashed by the losen shipped brackets.

    Perhaps in Germany no import tax ?
    We have limits here, so Andy sends me lots of baby cameras of $15 :)

    Of course you have to pay tax here and customs as well. And extremely high for stuff from CN. So Andy ships it to NL, clears the custom there (however he does) and then I get a parcel from NL and not CN, so there is no tax to be paid.

    Yes, you sure did for me.

    Many thanks for that.

    Sorry Solar Deity, How can I have missed the message with the answer to my biggest question :(
    Thank you very much for placing the link and the pictures of the boat rubber.
    Will order it right away :)


    Ow and I did order the PFA114, that's the last part I'm waiting for.

    Received the boat rubber.
    Had to cut it to size because the hole in de PFA120 is a bit smaller.

    It's a cheap but perfect solution, thanks again @Solar Deity ;)

    Hey @Sitnalta, where are you gone?
    Die you mount your cam now? Wanna hear and see some experience with this model. Especially the Auto-Tracking would be interesting.

    Whoops it's been a long time ago I see, sorry :(
    Well, at least I can tell you that the camera has been mounted outside :facepalm:

    My dad at work :)

    And here a picture of the end result, very happy :)

    [​IMG]

    And here are some night shots,
    These snapshots are created by my Home Assistant domotica software, so quality is not the best.
    Will make some snapshots from the Dahua software within 6 months :lmao:

    Front door

    Street view 2

    Street view 3

    And the reason the camera is bought in the first place, the cars on the driveway (Older picture).

    Tour / Presets
    I have my camera configured with a day and night tour that switches to a different preset every .. time.

    Auto Tracking
    Some were curious about my experience with the auto tracking function.
    All my presets have there own tripwires or motion detection configuration.
    Every car or pedestrian that passed by was on photo or video.
    This worked absolutely perfect in my situation !!! A bit to good I'm afraid.
    I removed the street view presets because one specific neighbor complaint.
    Cars where followed all around the corner and zoom level was perfect.
    And of course the camera sometimes made a mistake with zooming or moving to fast.
    But there were only a few license plates unreadable, but every passing car was on video.

    Trigger presets
    One thing is very high on my wish list, triggering presets with external sensors (Motion and Door sensors).
    I have a working preset trigger link (URL) but can't find a solution to execute this by command line or other kind of script.
    If I enter the following link in my browser I always have to re-enter my username/password and confirm:
    http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@IP:PORT/cg...hannel=0&code=GotoPreset&arg1=0&arg2=1&arg3=0
    Maybe someone can point me in the right direction or advice me to buy additional hardware.
    I can't use the alarm-in/out wires on the camera because of the camera location.

    Will make some day pictures and maybe a movie soon, thats it for now :wave:
