Winner, winner, chicken dinner. 49225 and whatever letters make the most sense.
I'll spare you all the standard welcome verbiage I normally post.
Keep your wallet in your pocket with JideTech, either that or I'll give you my address and you can send me the money you'd spend. Yeah, you'll still be out the money but you won't have the frustration and disappointment so I am saving you something
The goto camera for an AI PTZ is the 49225 series from Dahua. It's a 1/2.8" sensor doing 2MP which is the "sweet spot" for night performance and resolution. There's a newer model, 49425 I believe, and I think that's a 1/1.8" sensor doing 4MP. There's also a "laser IR" model you might want to look at but the prices go up significantly, at least for my wallet.
In any event contact Andy at EmpireTech and he'll steer you in the right direction as well as give you a great price and excellent support. If you do decide on a 49225 definitely buy it from him. Dahua has stripped the AI, auto tracking, from it to get you to buy a more expensive model, but Andy supplies them with the AI firmware.
Ok, so whats better than 1 review…….2 reviews……in tandem :) Read on to find out more. All, thanks to Andy (@empiretecandy ) we have a new 2MP AI camera for testing. This camera has been provided by Andy in exchange for a fair and honest review. This is a new PTZ with 4.8mm to 120mm focal...ipcamtalk.com
Flint,Not Happy with my Noob Jidetech 2Mp PTZ purchase. Needs browser plugins, that don't seem to stay working. Doesn't have clear control over I-frames. Doesn't have clear day night menu's not as configureable as the Dahua type products. Didn't really know wtf I was doing.
I was ignorantly trying to get one camera to do too many things. I replaced with with an over view 5442 Turret and a Loryta IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E Bullet cam for license plate capture. Your needs may vary. The Jidetach PTZ is now bolted to an exterior block wall watching the Geeese eat my grass and shit in theback yard... With an occasional Condo owner coming or going to work. heres a night Jidetech photo of my computer screen with a Mail thief who attempted entry to the Outbox in the Lobby. the other is a 5241E-z12E photo of the same area. quite a difference. I threw in a Kia coming in on the 5442 AS-LED.28mm over view cam. View attachment 92510View attachment 92511View attachment 92515View attachment 92516
