    ALPR capabilities of IRLZF1050?

    That's an incredibly helpful reply, thanks so much. It looks like you are outside of North America given the shape and style of the plates you're getting. I wonder how the firmware works in the United States. I would have to assume that it varies by state. The most recent dual sensor PTZ...

    ALPR capabilities of IRLZF1050?

    Thanks for the reply. I haven't owned a Dahua ALPR cam before so I was just curious how accurate and reliable the plate reads are, whether you can search for plates in the web GUI, or if there are any comparisons to OpenALPR. There's a Dahua ALPR training webinar on Youtube but it wasn't clear...

    ALPR capabilities of IRLZF1050?

    Just curious if anyone has experience with the ALPR capabilities of the ITC237-PW6M-IRLZF1050? I'm currently running a Z12E using about 90 percent (1140) of the zoom, but might be able to get by with the 50mm zoom in the IRLZF1050 if the ALPR was generally functional. I've seen other reviews of...

    Question on IPC-T2831 housing

    I have a couple of 8mp IPC-T2831T-AS S2s that I bought from Andy that have the plastic housing and trim ring, but the 8mp varifocal model--also listed as from the "lite" collection--appears to have full aluminum housing found in the non-lite models, which is what I'm needing for this particular...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    Has anyone with this camera swapped out one of the lenses like in this video? If so, am curious what lens was used. I've got the perfect spot for this camera with a 2.8mm and a 12mm or slightly longer lens for the other cam and wanted to make sure that I bought one that is confirmed to fit.

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    Anyone on this post use the camera uncovered in direct sunlight? While not preferable I know I'm just curious if anyone has this set up and the camera has performed fine given its already higher running temperature. I've got two spots where the camera could go, but the spot it would work best...

    Image missing from push notification

    Like apparently several others, for my Android (Galaxy Note 9) phone I've been able to get alert images through MMS but not through push notifications. Running on BI ver. 5.3.7.10. Has anyone gotten image/push notifications to work?

    2MP 3x Starlight IR PTZ Network Camera

    Was reading through some threads earlier this year about this camera and was wondering if anyone can confirm if the subsequent firmware updates have given it preset capability with IVS. Andy has them in stock and was going to check the latest firmware but I haven't heard back, so any insight...

    Socket error 10054

    PROBLEM SOLVED: All of the socket error issues went away went I downgraded Blue Iris back to version 5.3.4.3. I was able to add five more cameras with any issues and without BI stopping.

    Socket error 10054

    Appreciate your help, SouthernYankee. I'll post the screen shots of the video settings as soon as I can, but they are the factory default settings. In trying out different solutions, what I've noticed is that when I add the additional camera that gets the socket errors, only the substream...

    Socket error 10054

    Again, appreciate the response. The two cameras that I'm trying to add are an PC-T2831TM-AS-2 (8mp) and an Amcrest IP5M-T1179E (with Dahua flashed firmware). I have another T2831TM running just fine, as well as two other T1179Es. All of my cameras on BI are using substream processing, as...

    Appreciate the response. Don't have a diagram yet, but here are answers to your other questions: Is the video traffic running through the router on the way to BI ? Yes Are all the camera IP address static ? Yes Are the static address outside the DHCP range on the router? Not sure Are all the...

    Socket error 10054

    I've got 6 cameras running on an HP Elitedesk 800 i7-6700 with 8gb ram. All six cameras run great with direct-to-disk, substream encoding, and max frame rates equal to camera settings, and the CPU usage is around 12 percent, give or take. When I add a seventh or eighth camera, however, I...

    gDMSSPlus notifications for LPR motion events

    Attached is a screen grab of the timeline in the web GUI. You can see solid blocks of yellow (indicating motion throughout) for most of the overnight hours. Strange.

    gDMSSPlus notifications for LPR motion events

    Appreciate the response. Yeah, those settings are okay. The issue is really at night--the timeline in the web GUI for playback events shows events in 8 minute increments (the setting for the pack duration) notwithstanding the specific motion alerts in the mobile app. But this issue only...

    gDMSSPlus notifications for LPR motion events

    Relatively new to LPR but am running a IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E (with V2.800.0000000.10.R, Build Date: 2019-11-18 firmware) and have just tweaked the settings so I get sometimes readable nighttime plate reads. Using a 256gb SD card in the camera and don't use Blue Iris. I've set gDMSSPlus on my...

    DHTek/Dahua OEM setup issue

    After checking with this forum first, I bought an "DHTek/Dahua" OEM version of the 2mp 30x ptz, just like this one:Amazon.com : DHTek/Dahua OEM PDN6CEU230H-I 2MP 30x Starlight H.265 POE IR PTZ Network Camera, 4.5~135mm(30x Optical Zoom), 6 IR LEDs, 200m Night Vision, Micro SD, IP67 IK10 (No...

    Camera appears on NVR camera registration tab, click add, then shows error “Cannot find the network host”, any ideas?

    I'm in a similar boat. I'm trying to swap out a camera that's currently connected to my NVR directly with a compatible Amcrest camera with the goal of getting the additional Amcrest features through the Amcrest app. In bench testing, I've successfully added the Amcrest camera to the NVR with...

    Question on 2mp 30x Starlight variant

    Just curious if anyone had hands-on experience with this variant of 2mp PTZ and had any observations about the firmware and overall camera performance: 2MP 30x IR Starlight PTZ On paper this seems to fit my needs but figured I'd check before pulling the trigger. Any insights greatly appreciated.

    Sensor difference on outdoor 12x PTZ cams

    Thanks for the info. From scouring those Amazon reviews, it also appears that while the Amcrest 25x model is marketed as a wifi only camera, it does, in fact, have POE functionality. Are you pretty happy with the 25x you have? I'm not sure that I'm going find a more customizeable interface...

    Sensor difference on outdoor 12x PTZ cams

    Appreciate the responses. I like the the build quality and functionality of the camera, especially the time task options on the PTZ menus since I need to be able to have tours start automatically between certain hours. I've seen some inconsistencies between this family of cameras, as noted in...

    Sensor difference on outdoor 12x PTZ cams

    I've installed an Amcrest 12x 1080p outdoor PTZ camera (IP2M-853EW) and am thinking about getting another one for the other end of the house. In my newbie assumption that the 4MP version of the 12x would result in a better optical zoom, I'm considering paying more for that version. The specs...

    amcrest live view/web view fail

    I just got the Amcrest 12x 1080 PTZ and was having the same issue about the webview plug in scaling. I did what Jack7 suggested and modified the WebActive X properties and that worked, but not all of the PTZ settings are there. When the webview plug in obscured the PTZ settings menu, I could...
