I don't live on here 24/7. In most case's, each review, at my pokey old man pace, takes close to 20-30 man hours to produce. So, some patience would be appreciated.Where are the NIGHT videos!
I've not had the chance yet to check on the accessories, you can here to check compatibility. Dahua Technology - Leading Video Surveillance Solution Provider with CCTV ProducThanks for the review Loony
While these new cameras don't fit the old junction boxes we used with the 5231's, am I correct in thinking they will fit the Wall Mount Brackets that were used with the 5231 cams? PFB203W
Also, do you have to have a special NVR to use the AI features of the camera?

In another review it was mentioned that this new cam can be mounted into the old surround for the 5231 which would/could mean that the exiting junction box could be used. Is this something that you can maybe check/test as I’d want to simply swap a 2 for a 4 without hopefully having to replace the junction box as well.
@looney2ns, LOL on night video 2 @ the 1 minute mark. Police cruising by, nothing to see here. Just a guy wandering around his driveway!!Night video added to post #2.
Spec sheet pdf attached to first post.
By the way, this cam will indeed fit on the new junction box adapter.
That's what I was getting at in a less technical way than yourself.There's something really strange going on with the compression it seems, similar to the version with white leds. It's almost as if looney2ns is some kind of semi-transparent ghost in those night time videos. Unless my memory is inaccurate (I should really re-check the reviews before saying this) the 2MP Starlight (5231 etc) cams seem to offer better quality at night with far fewer compression artefacts.
Yes they both are good cams. The starlight tech need time to make a big step progress normally need 2-3 years. Maybe you can use different models for your system.Thank you for the night time shots. My initial impressions are that it doesn't seem like it is any better than the HFW-1831E 8MP 1.8" bullet. In fact, I was hoping that this 5442 would be noticeably better at night time.
I'm about to order 8-9 cameras for my mother-in-law ...
