    After reading and digesting info from here for the past several weeks, I''m going to get my feet wet with my first IP cam.

    From a recommendation based from @nayr I've placed an order for this cam: Aliexpress.com : Buy SD59225U HNI 2MP 25x Starlight IR PTZ Network Camera SD59225U HNI ,free DHL shipping from Reliable network camera suppliers on Empire Technology Co., Ltd

    We will set this up as a critter cam in our backyard. We also have a view of a lake.
    Will post pics and vids when it arrives.

    You guys are costing me MONEY! ha!

    That's what I would consider "diving right in" - Good Luck and look forward to the review and examples.

    Remember to also get a proper powering source since this is POE+

    My first would have been the IPC-HDW5231R-Z, but it's a tad hard to obtain at the moment. It's next on the agenda.
    Copy that on the Poe+. Shopping for a switch now. Anyone has a favorite I'm all ears.

    Ubiquiti is my new favorite on networking gear.

    And I've got access to Juniper and HP at insanely cheap prices through a huge client of ours (giant company that buys in huge volume). They offered to barter some stuff with us because they are happy with the work we've done.

    Ubiquti takes the cake on being enterprise-level reliable, but also easy to use.

    The cam has shipped today. It appears that Visa took their time clearing the payment is part of the delay.
    Stay tuned.

    Looking forward to your experience with this. Andy just put this item in my ear and has me curious if it will work for my back yard. I ordered these ZyXEL’s new PoE switch cuts network complexity for small offices | ZyXEL . Still waiting on cameras to determine how the poe portion works.

    Doh! Thanks zero and Andy, I had seen that spec sheet but it didn't register with me that those were the pipe dimensions. Thank you.

    I finally had time to set it up last night on a test basis. Granted this is indoors as the weather outside is frightful. :)
    After some struggles getting the IE plugin to produce a picture...WOW. This sucker rocks.

    How do I get the manually recorded files to play back in the IE web app?
    The files are in the folder but the playback tab doesn't find them, it only shows the SD card as the data source, which I don't have as yet.
    They don't show up on the calendar either. This on a Win 7 machine.

    Ha! Yes I've been slacking off badly haven't I? :) My internet wasn't cooperating last night.

    Here we go, keep in mind camera is inside on it's scientifically engineered test stand. Outdoor pictures are taken through the window.
    All camera settings are still at factory defaults.

    I'm very happy with the camera, and with Andy (@EMPIRETECANDY) at Empire Technologies at AliExpress. He did everything he said he would do.

    I've had the camera working with IE, Chrome with IE tab, SmartPSS, and Tinycam Monitor Pro, except with tinycam, the ptz or preset functions won't work. I've emailed the developer concerning that. It is a new model after all.

    It's been powered up continuously now for about 60 hrs, and no issues.

    On to the pics.

    Something else you want to see? Let me know.
    Hopefully, the weather will moderate tomorrow and I can get it outside for some testing.

    Yes, test it outside and share us more pics. You can hang it on the wall and make it working then... Lol

    nothing wrong with a good ole bench test; getting cameras in the winter time can be kinda a pain waiting on the weather to cooperate heh, something this big and expensive I applaud the burn-in period.. now if you spend all day ontop of a rickety ladder man handling a heavy PTZ you know you wont have any problems unless you borked the install heh.

    being in a rush is a great way to fuck shit up; Ive dropped a few expensive cameras because I didnt take the time to think things through clearly heh.. take it from me.. speaking of which these large PTZ's I like to attach a safety hook/screw above the mounting point then attach some string in a loop around the top that goes into the bracket.. then you can install the bracket, then carry the camera up, hang it from the line, then phish the cables through, hook em up and then put it together with the string still intact that you can cut off when all happy with everything.. you really need a 3rd hand and being able to hang the camera from the string so you can work without worry is the only way to do it.. some models Ive came across come with a saftey cable to use, but the black face does not.. so make your own.

    Good advice nayr, thanks for the string tip.

    When I ordered this cam, I hadn't thought the install through completely. When I received it, it was obvious what little I had thought about it wasn't going to work. :) Currently working on plan C.

    Are you still happy with the bullet microphone you reviewed back in Oct? Microseven IP Cameras

    yep, its nowhere near the studio microphone I use on my ham radio.. but for security purposes its an excellent outdoor mic, I have tried most of em and none came close to that mic.

    Ok, may have hit a snag with the cam. Tinycam Pro won't connect via ONVIF, and the author of that program says it should.

    So I download the ONVIF tool. It finds that cam as General, and lets me login to the cam. But I can't do anything else without getting an error "Sender Not Authorized" suggestions?

    I dont have much experience with that tool, but IIRC it dont 'let you login'.. you give it credentials that it saves and tries to use with every request; it looks like your supplied credentials may be invalid.

    I perfer to create individual logins for applications I use and never give the generic admin login to anything as repeated failed logins will lock an account down.. so add a us r called: tinycampro with full PTZ and viewing permissions and try that.

    Thanks for the photo's.

    Question: i see that the cables from the camera are long on a photo where they come through the wood of the test there.

    Is there some room in the bracket of the camera if you want to use POE, so only a rj-45 cable to the camera ?

    probably if your determined, but it'd be a tight fit.

    I used a corner mount bracket with mine and it left just enough space behind it I could tuck the plug into so I didnt try hiding it inside the hanging tube.. I even have all the alarm IO's wired up but I soldered em because I think wire nuts wold have been too big.
