The optical zoom is managed via the camera's web interface, as well as through Blue Iris' PTZ controls. Is that where you mean "T" and "W" buttons?Is the zoom level adjustable from the web interface on the camera or are you required to push those two "T" or "W" buttons in order to change the zoom?
In the OP there is a picture where the SD card is installed into the camera. There appears to be two physical buttons labeled “W” and “T”. I assumed those are two physical buttons that mean “Wide” and “Telephoto”.
Any of the above mention options works. Those buttons are to be used with an attached monitor directly to the camera to adjust upon install.In the OP there is a picture where the SD card is installed into the camera.

Good to know it can be done via the web interface.
Hey @DLONG2, what kind of a Unifi POE switch are you using to connect your 5241?The 5241 arrived in California in just 4 days. (Thanks, Andy!) There were some settings on initial load I wasn't familiar with, such as auto-updates. I had turned those off because of the VLAN segmentation, but having auto-updates would be nice; will have no manually manage those. The system version is 2.800.0000000.1.R, Build Date: 2019-07-06.
Otherwise, setup was a breeze within my Ubiquiti 'prosumer' network: Connect the camera to a port with POE+, configured for all VLANs. Point the main PC's browser to 126.96.36.199, and follow the setup. In the camera's Network area I set the static IP to be a member of the BI VLAN. At this point I changed the port profile to the BI VLAN, and used Blue Iris on the BI VLAN to discover the new camera. Having recently switched to FireFox, I was surprised to see the video embedded within the camera's web UI, which is nice.
no issues at all. I do make the habit of setting POE+ on the port rather than leaving on Auto. I then tag traffic on those ports to camera based VLANs to separate traffic and pull that into the firewall to ensure isolated etc as needed.Gotcha, have you run into any issue with the passive 24v with Dahua cams?
Yes, the 7442 I have has the 5-64mm lens. No focus issues at all at night or when switching. On this one I would not be anywhere near the max zoom on the range. I just want to make sure that the profiles do switch on this one as well.Like the 5231 they can get out of focus if not enough light when it switches. I would suspect the 7442 would also if it had a 64mm lens at something over 120 and 85% or so zoom
