    weird night image

    my bet is IR cut filter is stuck. Happened on one of my 5231's. I took mine down, tapped with my knuckles, plugged directly into switch with 3 foot patch cord, still IR filter stuck. I then tapped LIGHTLY with rubber mallet (could of used soft grip end of a screwdriver too) and that fixed it.

    Patching outside wall stucco when moving camera to new location advice needed

    I like the Quickcrete brand. Will give this a shot. Think I'll use the squeeze tube for holes... stucco pint bucket for larger patches. And then...use magic or sorcery for color matching!

    Patching outside wall stucco when moving camera to new location advice needed

    As my experience keeps improving and I learn new things and I upgrade cameras...the initial positioning of a specific camera is relocated. Sometimes, the older location was attached to the wood trim/fascia... other times, I was forced to screw directly into the 1/4" thick stucco. Example: I...

    Blue Iris / Eve / HomeKit

    I do not know anything about Eve or Homekit, but Blue Iris can send out MQTT posts based on individual camera triggers

    How not to position cameras.

    never understood why folks angle the camera to catch 1/2 of the sky. Is the expectation to catch prowler climbing highest point of the trees? Are the people in Indiana 12' tall? Does your neighborhood have a Spiderman problem? Ask your neighbor come morning time for night time shots :)

    Help: what cam do i need? Turret, bullet, dome, ptz, etc

    Though it is highly recommended to have cameras around 6' height for facial identification, sometimes that placement does not work due to obstructions. That means, you will have to put the camera higher which then means you need more zoom/focal length for the angle of attack, per se. Higher...

    Help: what cam do i need? Turret, bullet, dome, ptz, etc

    I 2nd the suggestion of varifocals. One thing I have learned from buying 20+ cameras...I move them around here or there for different purposes. I have fixed 2.8mm's that I wish now were varifocals.

    any future considerations of putting garage carriage lights on the left/right side of garage doors? I did that for my 2 car garage that only had a single flood light dead center above the door. I then put 2 cameras right under the carriage lights to cover the driveway. Just cause I had an...

    PIR Suggestion?

    what do you mean...updated since? All Bosch pet friendly PIR's have a "WP" in their model #. From what I found online, only 2 options: 6G = 20'x20' area. 12G = 40'x40' area.

    PIR Suggestion?

    Oh...I should also mention...I am by far no security expert. I was kind of rushed into finding something that worked 100% and fast as I had my own security issue happening night after night.

    PIR Suggestion?

    I have only dabbled with 2 PIR's. The Bosch outdoor PIR OD-850 TriTech Motion Detector and Bosch BDL2-WP12G TriTech Motion Detector Pet Immune. I consider Bosch one of the top notch residential PIR's so went with them. Though, surely there are other's. Both are hardwired, not wireless. You...

    ah. yes. makes sense as I tried Pale Moon 64bit, unaware that I was to only use 32bit. Good to know later.

    Display YouTube Livestream in Blue Iris

    This is how I have my local traffic camera live streamed into Blue Iris. This stream (and probably many public cameras) use the M3U8 format. Read up on it, if your local traffic cameas use that format. They are...spotty for some reason. The live stream in Blue Iris updates every 5-10...

    I agree that is it messed up kinda wrong. Yet, I could also see the other side of the fence in regards to law and order. Unless I posted "no tresspassing" signs on my property, she (or anyone) can walk onto my property with the reasonable legal expectation of preserving their constitutional...

    for those that may encounter such a situation down the road... before being served with the TPO, I basically could only use harsh words against her unless she was in the act of property damage. Be wary. Lots of Karen's out there. If I had grabbed her or roughed her up, she could of sued me...

    over $2500 in destruction of property. I believe there is a $$$ limit between misdemeanour and whatever level is next. Add to that....2 TPO's. Add to that, neighbor's brother is Reno PD police officer.

    24/7 Recording

    what is going on that 75% of the time, your main stream is recording? My substreams record 97% of the time with main streams around 3% for IVS triggered alerts using camera AI and Deepstack AI /OnGuard for non-AI cameras.

    billions and billions of post of such a subject over the last 8-9 months. There is a magnifying glass icon upper right of page called "search". Might get you the information faster and more in depth than a single reply.
