    Guess you need to work on that AI

    This is another perfect example of lazy people who rely too heavily on automation. We all know so called AI technology is still very young and needs to get better. One would think something that has a financial and legal impact on a citizen the government would embrace the human element to...

    Just no hope

    Yes, other soft tissue areas is grabbing ears and nose. A shot to the kidney, neck, temple. You strike a person in the zyphode (SP) that hangs at the middle of the rib cage and if you break it. It’s a really slow death if emergency help can’t be provided. Grabbing a persons thumbs and pulling...

    Just no hope

    Absolutely - the human body has five kill points or soft tissue areas that can take down anyone. Comes down to how you’re positioned or capable of striking that area. If you are on your stomach on the ground you have very little hope. [emoji3525]

    Just no hope

    That’s because you’re old guard and live by those silly things like honour, duty, country. I don’t expect anyone to engage a person but when the technology exists to render assistance like the help button. Come on . . . [emoji107]

    Smart door bell harassment - 100K

    Another forum member has provided a YouTube video that outlines more of the facts. It appears the Ring person is completely guilty on two of the three counts. Now, whether 100K Sterling is justified I just don’t know! [emoji2357]

    Just no hope

    I could understand if a child or another small female was in the train. There was no method or technology to ask for help. But in this case lots of people with cell phones to call 911. Even if we said there was no reception well there’s that freaking HELP button on the wall! Yet people just sat...

    eBay - Expired Sales?!?

    Americans are totally spoiled! [emoji1787] Anyone who’s Canadian knows what waiting is along with limited selection. We know everything costs 20-50% more depending upon what the item is. When I see a package literally come clear across the two different countries the next day?!? I honestly feel...

    eBay - Expired Sales?!?

    I had the same experience with Amazon a few months ago. Happened exactly as you listed out. [emoji107] The problem I ran into was Amazon was literally waiting for me to return the item that never came?!? When I called in and pressed the CSR as to what was happening with my refund. They said the...

    Just no hope

    I just don’t know what’s going on in the world these days. How people can just sit there and do nothing to help another human being. Whether it be to call 911 or press a freaking help button! [emoji107] The video is in the article . . . https://flip.it/Dz6bPj

    CCTV Legality Case in the UK

    Of course not why would the government want to be held back and bound by the very same laws that only apply to its citizens! [emoji2357][emoji107] They can monitor and record everything and 99.99999% nothing is ever happening at a government building. But where there are real crimes of theft...

    eBay - Expired Sales?!?

    Has anyone noticed some really strange behaviour on eBay?!? More specifically if you select watch this item a day later it shows up as expired even though it had say 5-10 days left in the auction?? [emoji2357] At first I thought it had to be my mistake of the listing ending on time - it wasn’t...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    The first task was to determine if the new IR was defective and based on the OP’s test the unit was not DOA. The next step was to determine if the switch was capable of powering the existing hardware as it has in the past. The information provided by the OP confirmed the power draw seen at the...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    No worries, as your last test proved the switch could power both IR lights without issue. Taken at face value that doesn’t seem to be a power issue from the active splitter. Let us all know! [emoji106][emoji481]

    SD59225U-HNI vs SD49225XA-HNR

    This would also highlight the need and use for spotter cams to help direct the PTZ. The use of PTZ’s is great when a person is managing the same. But if you are relying solely on auto tracking this technology still has a long way to go. The use of spotter cams and trip wires from other sensors...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    I would be curious to see what happens when you connect just the new IR. Followed by connecting the camera? You’ll also perform the reverse test of camera than new IR. Wondering if the POE AF handshake is turning off the port.

    CCTV Legality Case in the UK

    First, thanks to the OP for sharing this fantastic video that provided all of the facts as it relates to this case. [emoji106] I also agree with @IAmATeaf that based on the facts the Ring guy lost on many counts. If what this video states as true he literally purgered himself in court which in...

    That is what I hoped to see to be honest. So the POE switch actually has no problems running both IR lights at the 160.X feet of cable?

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    What happens if you connect both IR does it turn on? Based on your past reply the old IR is close to the same power consumption very curious to see if both turn on and what the switch indicates as the power draw. Lastly, if time permits take a 5 foot Ethernet cable and see if it allows the...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    Maybe the OP can offer more clarity so we all know what’s in place?!? - What type of cable is being used to power the camera & IR? More specifically the gauge (AWG) of the cable and its total length. - What accessories are being used? Active - Passive Splitters, connectors, etc. - Id like to...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    As an aside I would suggest you login to the switch and see what the power consumption is with the existing hardware on that port. More specifically what the power consumption is for just the camera. Next add the old IR light and see what it is then. You’ll need to cover the ambient light...

    Trouble powering a new IR illuminator

    No worries just want to make sure all of us are dealing with the facts as it relates the hardware on hand. If everything you’ve stated is true that the Ubiquiti POE switch is able to power both the camera and (old) IR. My first guess would have been a lack of power. The standard for POE AF is...
