    Bitrate vs frame rate vs resolution

    It's a LAN network, no internet. And i have a 4 port router that has 3 cameras plugged into it, the fourth port in the router has a 4 port hub connected to it with one camera plugged into the hub. All viewing is done on 3 Android phones over WiFi. No hard wired PC connected. The Amcrest app...

    Bitrate vs frame rate vs resolution

    I have one camera that can't be reached via Ethernet cable, and it has disconnected only once in several months. It runs very smooth. I have a 4 Port router and a 4 port hub. I have three cameras plugged into the router and the hub using the fourth port, with one camera currently plugged into...

    Bitrate vs frame rate vs resolution

    Thanks. I'll lower the bitate, frame rate and resolution, and leave only one camera on WiFi and see if that fixes the problem. If not I may separate them on different routers I set the high bitrate when I had only three cameras. And as many here predicted, my cameras are multiplying like...

    Bitrate vs frame rate vs resolution

    I have four cameras (soon to be five) connected by Ethernet cables, and two cameras connected wirelessly to a gigabyte router on my LAN system. I'm periodically having intermittent freezing of the live video for a few seconds at times. I'm wondering if this is being caused by the bitrate/frame...

    Thoughts on HaLow 802.11ah (902MHz-926MHz) cameras

    Has anyone had any experience with these 900mhz long range cameras?. Zosi seems to be the only manufacturer at this time. The camera from Scenes One - The First WiFi HaLow Security Camera isn't on the market yet. Scenes One indiegogo I like the idea of a long range low power wireless network...

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    If you know of any way to upgrade amcrest firmware let me know. I cant do it, you need to sign up and register which is imposible. Amcrest makes upgrading very difficult

    I agree, that's why I have not tried to upgrade to dahua. Updating the amcrest firmware is impossible. You need to sign up with email, and when I try that I get error messages. If i could backup the software I would do dahua now

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    I might have to do that, this firmware seems to be outdated. The amcrest website shows different options than exists in my firmware. I have been hesitant because it seems impossible to get my old amcrest firmware back again if something goes wrong. I can't even get to the amcrest download page.

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    Even though I like the Amcrest view pro app, it is a bit buggy, the fast forward of recorded video does not work. The given names of the cameras (parking lot, main floor, back wall etc) keep changing to different names. When I choose a date of recorded video I want to watch, the video always...

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    The bottom line is cost vs effectiveness and what you need it for. Amcrest and Dahua both have $250 cameras that have much better video quality, but if you don't need a $250 4k camera to watch your front yard, then it's a waste of money better spent on another $50 camera for your back yard. The...

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    Yes, an important distinction is how fast are the objects moving. This is a parking lot and vehicles move at 10mph. So at 35mph there probably will be a blur. My home security cameras will definitely be 4k and record at 4 with high framerates , even if I need to use multiple routers for it to...

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    Yes I understand what people want from home security cameras, but these cameras are used to watch over a specific area of a warehouse, in which every vehicle and person is already known. In fact there are two other sets of security cameras on the premises, but our agency does not have access...

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    Maybe you meant pause the recorded video, I can't pause live video on the amcrest app. I just tried pausing last nights recorded video and the still image of trucks driving by and people walking look flawless. Even with the digital zoom I would think the framerates, bitrates or the megapixel of...

    The camera is in the parking lot and I see no difference with cars driving by after dark. It uses Sonys starlight sensor Look on YouTube for "Dahua Full-color camera"

    Amcrest or Annke?, I finally found my camera

    I'll look into RemotePC, my boss would like the ability to see the cameras from home. I was extremely impressed with the video quality of the $50 amcrest 5mp camera, the color saturation and clarity are great. I can only imagine what the 4k cameras looks like. But what impressed me the most...
