    Program for flipping cameras to day/night on Linux

    Update, I am wrong, the program does run, I just have to type the full path even when, in a terminal, I try to run sunwait from it's installed location. So I guess I have to update the path to include the directory. Thanks again biggen, you're a legend.

    Program for flipping cameras to day/night on Linux

    Thanks again biggen for your help, much appreciated. I didn't get any errors but when I attempt to run sunwait from terminal, it just says 'bash: sunwait: command not found'. After the make call which I had to do using sudo (make by itself gave a permission error when trying to create...

    Program for flipping cameras to day/night on Linux

    Thanks, this is exactly what I need to run on my multi camera system. I'm new to rasp. pi and Linux though and not sure how I get the sunwait on to it? The link takes me to github, but from there do I save all the files then run makefile on my pi? Also if I have multiple cameras, do I need to...

    OK, got it working, didn't realize had to have record set on NVR setup screen , I had it set on camera IVS setup screen where I had set up all the IVS paramters, didn't seem to work until record also set to NVR setup screen. It's funny how the parameters set on camera screen seem to get...

    IVS events not showing on timeline, Dahua NVR5216 4KS2 V2

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that IVS events should display on the timeline of playback on the NVR, yet it doesn't on mine, I'm using the web interface . Is the event markers on the timeline only for the native UI or should it be available on the web interface also? The only event I see in...

    Turret mount runs out of vertical travel

    Thanks guys, as mentioned by atristobrat, you guys are the best. I didn't expect this topic to generate much response. I have ordered a right angle mount to see if that helps, but I suspect it it's made as a true right angle it won't help much, as aristobrat mentioned, the front flat face of the...

    Turret mount runs out of vertical travel

    Do you mean rotate ball/camera within housing so it's upside down then flip image back with software? If so, I've already got it like that but still not enough angle. When viewing the camera sitting flat on a table top, the flat face is angled up slightly, whereas I need it angled at least...

    Turret mount runs out of vertical travel

    Hi everyone, I have a starlight in turret form which I wish to mount on my garage facing up the driveway, mounting under eaves. When mounting turret I run out of adjustment to be able to point the turret up enough so I miss seeing taller people's heads unless they come quite close to the...

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 V2or V1 and HDMI issue

    My model is just NVR5216-4KS2 as per the listing on aliexpress, it has no A or B for generation so I would have thought there should still be a v1 or v2 showing somewhere if that's what they are being advertised as.

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 V2or V1 and HDMI issue

    Thanks, comprehensive reply. I'll have to check my model number, the box itself just has serial number only so not sure where the model number is found, maybe in the software setup screens? Pity there's not a Dahua reference between serial and model numbers. Its funny how the have DNA Gen as...

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 V2or V1 and HDMI issue

    Thanks Pmedicij, Yeah it's odd mine not labelled as v2 but I received the unbranded version. I checked the differences between versions and I think mine is V2 as it has people counting functionality in the setup menus whereas I think V1 wouldn't.

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 V2or V1 and HDMI issue

    Thanks Mat, Happy 4th to you too. Solved the HDMI issue, not sure how but working now. I think it only displays via HDMI when a camera is attached and setup, which can only be done initially through the VGA setting...maybe. I also heard back from the supplier - Andy from Empiretech on...

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 V2or V1 and HDMI issue

    Hi, I've been researching NVR's and cameras for a couple of months now using this forum as it's full of excellent information. Finally decided on the NVR, ordered from one of the suppliers recommended here, and the unit arrived quite quickly yesterday. I ordered the V2 model but on opening...
