Admittedly I did not read the whole thread, please do not smack me for asking something that may have been asked already. Will the Ai functionality work if you do not have internet? Thanks
I picked up the IPC-HFW7442H-Z4 a few days ago based on this review. I overall like the camera but I can not get the ALPR function to work correctly. i have adjusted multiple settings, even did a full factory reset in case I did something wrong or a weird setting was on the camera I didn't know about. i don't have it in it's permanent spot yet, as I'm still doing testing for the best results.
i setup it up with Smart Plan set to Video Structuralization. The camera would save pictures of the cars, people and faces zoomed in, but the live view would not show me any of those on the camera. I changed the angle/distance/zoom. Walked in front of it with a license plate. Nothing.
I turned all of that off, and turned on only ANPR. The camera finally starting getting hits on cars, but would not read the plates still. Both Blue Iris w/ Plate Recognizer and OpenALPR would get hits. I have reviewed the images and they are very clear, at least to me. Nothing.
After factory resetting the camera, the only settings I have changed so far.
