From my experience and talked with @Wildcat_1

The 5842 as it really is good and definitely worth it for people wanting to look to add to their 5442 rollout as well :D
So if budget is not a problem, just get one of this.
We have a project at a resort total 128 cams, the boss there want to change their 2mp cams to the IPC-T5842T-ZE.
Here is a sample.

I dont see this has a ALARM OUT wire in specs. I dont think any of the turrets come with ALARM OUT wires though from what I have been researching. I've looked at the 5842s and 5442s. Can anyone confirm this?

The bullet version has the alarm port. IPC-B5842E-ZE.
All turret IR version not have the alarm in/output, but on the domes and bullet.

I just wanted to say thanks to @Wildcat_1 for this extensive review. We moved into a house that had 6 older analog cameras that were just terrible and after reading this review along with seeing @EMPIRETECANDY being an active member of the community (& taking feedback to Dahua for FW adjustments!), I purchased 6 of these 5842's from Andy's Aliexpress account, which I think cleared him out. I'm looking forward to upgrading the cameras and starting out my journey on significantly improving the surveillance of our home.

Thanks for the kind words @vitrify13 glad the review helped. Will continue to do these and other comparisons, setup videos etc as long as they help people. Jus the sure to DM me if you need any help with dialing in the cams. Enjoy !
