    New build 40 cameras 4K , what would you do ?

    Sure, this ought to work. Finally Completed - New EPYC build & Limit Test - (Extremely Unnecessary Builds) I estimate (40 * 8.3MP cameras @ 20FPS) using substreams if I did the math would be about 6500 MP/s effective full-rez recorded and another 600MP/s in substreams. With this configuration...

    Router recommendations

    edit: I think "Guest Network" @wittaj recommended would be what I would try. Play dumb and get lucky option: hook up a second distinct network router Check if your ISP allows you to connect multiple devices to your single internet connection (i.e. thinking a switch in front of two routers to...

    Router recommendations

    I know you are asking for a recommendation for a different router, but I find the ASUS Routers to be a pretty good consumer solution. I definitely would recommend (and do use them) for VPN access via OpenVPN. I know it doesn't specifically tackle the VLAN feature you asked about but it might...

    Midnight Cleansing

    That's how it went for my wife and son, both smoked for years, then switched to vaping. I remember early on they both used to talk about how overwhelming the smell of a smoker walking by was (in a I need to bum a cig off that person because I have a crazy craving, and like TonyR describes my...

    Router recommendations

    In that video, check the 7 minute mark for a really good summary of the SG-1100 ($179) or SG-2100 ($229). Recognize you are buying a lower power device at a premium, but officially supported and with the newest pfSense software. Also I don't believe either provide any wifi connectivity so plan...

    Router recommendations

    Or consider something like the Unifi USG (Security Gateway), less dreamy but still the same ecosystem, good UI and decent following for (usually) unpaid support. Since I never had the USG my Unifi dashboard never had the cool firewall metrics (pfSense doesn't yet integrate with Unifi...

    Router recommendations

    I don't personally have one, but Ubiquity has a solid following here and elsewhere, and all the Unifi equipment I do have (AP, POE Switch) I think their UI is top notch, I really like it. However, I did move the Unifi Controller to a PC on my network because the First-Gen Cloud key was garbage...

    Router recommendations

    Here's my recommendations: No interest in becoming a network guru, but: want reliability, consistent patching and VPN support: Any ASUS router want VPN support and advanced features (VLAN's etc), with option to dig into some advanced networking, but basic UI, but with a support safety net to...

    IPC-T5442T-ZE as an LPR help

    HDW5442TM-AS VBR Issue I wonder if you are having a similar issue with your 5442-Z4E, mine had this VBR issue even with great light. You could try changing the IFrame and some other parameters recommended in that thread.

    Ideal camera for front door doesn't exist? What is the closest match?

    Maybe hope they bring out a Turret model of this guy? DH-IPC-HFW8442-Z4-D47-LI or maybe someone with experience could tell you if you could Frankenstein replace one of the lens on an IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M/M12 with a 6mm, 8mm or 12mm for the longer shot or go with something more typical like 2...

    Ideal camera for front door doesn't exist? What is the closest match?

    Kind of with Southern Yankee on this. I did see at an apartment/condo complex once where you could push the page button for a tenant at the door and it would ring their actual phone so you could two-way talk and get "buzzed in". But that was because the door was always locked and there were...

    Using POE Texas injectors with VLANs

    Yeah sorry about that, got buried in the response. I agree with Valiant I'd be surprised, but I don't have any VLAN easily accessible, and I don't have the exact same POE*Texas injector so couldn't be 100% sure I guess.
