    Suggestions for Camera Setup at Subdivision Pool \ rec area

    Thanks. I assumed from other discussions any "wireless" connection would not be a good idea but sounds like that is not the case. Going to try to talk the board into that setup bc really no ideal place for the equipment. What is needed on the camera end then? Is it as simple as the Nano...

    BI randomly shuts down \ drops Port Forwarding

    My setup is: Win10 i7-6700 w 24GB RAM Yes, the port forward in BI just randomly disappears. I know when it drops because the BI phone app won't connect. I check BI on the computer and it's just not there. I click to add and t is back for a while. Router is provided by my internet provider...

    BI randomly shuts down \ drops Port Forwarding

    Thanks I've used BI for several years now, around when V4 came out. Yes, I have gone through the Wiki on more than one occasion to max performance which did really help a lot when having high CPU issues a long while back. When V5 came out I did a fresh Windows HDD wipe and install. No other...

    BI randomly shuts down \ drops Port Forwarding

    Really two issues been having for a while. I'm on BI 5.2.9.2 x64. I do not check the BI computer all that often, so I do not know exactly when it occurs, but BI is randomly closing out on any given day \ time. It is not a huge deal but of course is frustrating when one of the few times I want...

    That's pretty cheap. I didn't consider Wi-Fi just because so many people say it is a no-no for sec cams all the time here plus the added complexity and possible connectivity issues but sounds like it is worth considering. I'll have to check out the club house to see if there is any place to...

    Suggestions for Camera Setup at Subdivision Pool \ rec area

    The link I posted is kind of an all-in-one kit; (NVR,POE Switch, Wi-Fi connector, power, SSHD). Is your set-up more of individual components fit into a standard NEMA box? Was your cost for all items similar or better? Looking at it to gauge if something like the RuggedVision setup would be a...

    Suggestions for Camera Setup at Subdivision Pool \ rec area

    So it sounds like the pump room is just going to get too hot\cold\damp and I'm afraid a typical NVR unit would fail at some point. The room across from it is a bathroom, (also w no HVAC), and just a vent fan so not a great option either. Both rooms have open air space above them but below the...

    Thanks all for the input. Lots of good thoughts for me to consider. That layout was just my initial placement thought. Two 90 deg cams for the pool could be the better option. I was also considering trying to talk them into something like the 4 x 2 MP PFW8840-A180 panoramic style camera, (I...

    Suggestions for Camera Setup at Subdivision Pool \ rec area

    I am being tasked by our subdivision's board to come up with a "stand alone" or otherwise "closed" , (NOT 24/7 internet connected), security camera solution for our small neighborhood pool and pavilion area. The key interest is to capture and document possible instances of vandalism, theft...

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    What options are left when moving to Windows 11? I think IE11 will no longer be included. I don't like having to do chinese mfg viewer add-ins like some offer. Who knows what those really have access to on the computer once installed.

    Pros and cons of IR floodlights?

    What are typical \best ways to power a secondary IR source external from the camera? (not including running a 2nd CAT run.) If you are like me, you have a CAT 5 cable powering the camera where there are no outlets. I have seen splitters to break out the data and power but of course would...

    Anyone used a USB 3.0 connected external Drive for Video storage?

    Didn't realize a PCIE card could add SATA ports. But if it cannot provide power connections as well I guess it's a moot point. Inside my case I am pretty sure there are no additional SATA or power ports that I can identify on the MB. So looks like my MB has 5 SATA connections but only 3 Power...

    Anyone used a USB 3.0 connected external Drive for Video storage?

    I still have USB ports and I think they are also 3.0. The speed spec on USB 3.0 in theory is really fast but it sounds like some people still struggle with it taking a long time to move large video files. Looks like I can get a 1 or 2 bay USB HD enclosure for ynder$50 bucks on Amazon, (quality...

    Anyone used a USB 3.0 connected external Drive for Video storage?

    I do have a DVD drive. Do those have the same power and SATA connectors to swap with a HD? I'd prefer not to get rid of it as I do use it on occasion (rarely) to burn photo discs.

    Anyone used a USB 3.0 connected external Drive for Video storage?

    I purchased 2 x 4GB WD Purple drives for additional video storage. Turns out there are no more connections available in my PC to add them. (My setup has a small SSD and an 8TB Drive now but the 8TB is very close to full with just under 2 week's video history and I'd like to expand closer to...

    Cool! I totally want to know how to do that! Could have all kinds of fun freaking people out. Is it simple? Is this what a "deep fake" video looks like or not good enough?

    Not eligible for Winn 11 Upgrade?!

    Thanks. Ride it out to 2025 it is for the desktop then. Oddly enough, the MS PC Health Check app said my laptop, (which is even older), also was not compatible when I checked it late last year. I just checked it again last week and it said it WAS compatible with Win11. So I went ahead and ran...

    Review-Dahua/EmpireTech Dual lens IPC-HDBW5441F-AS-E2 (The Boobie Cam Upgrade)

    Just browsing old posts here. Dahua has some nice 180 multi-lensed cams that have 3 or 4 cameras stitched together as one image feed. They are a lot bigger and more expensive of course but I love the coverage. I have the 2mp 5231 2.8mm cam and the 4x2MP pano bullet style cam...

    Can you power Christmas lights with POE+?

    Just curious, does anyone know if it is somehow possible to power LED Christmas lights with POE+ through CAT 6 cable? I wanted to put Christmas lights at my mailbox but don't want to run an extension cord all the way from the house. I already have a buried CAT 6 cable connection there I...

    Need tutorial direction to stream cam on our new subdivision web site

    Yup, tried 15fps\15 I-frame...didn't seem to make it any better or worse. I was assuming the BI help talking about the "Max KeyFrame Interval" had to be something different or at least the value not refer to seconds but it does not clarify. BI help seems to be at odds with The YouTube error...

    Need tutorial direction to stream cam on our new subdivision web site

    I think I have it working as good as it is going to get. Using the substream is a max 480p but that's fine for my purposes and no blips for lack of a better term. When I switch to it using the main stream no matter what the settings the image does some sort of blip blocky blur then goes clear...

    Need tutorial direction to stream cam on our new subdivision web site

    The stream is definitely from camera to BI to YouTube. My camera model, (5321Z) does not have the RTMP firmware option to try streaming it directly from the camera itself. Tweaking all of the settings suggested and a few others are not making any difference to the end quality. Tweaking the...

    Need tutorial direction to stream cam on our new subdivision web site

    I left everything at whatever the defaults are in BI. 1) Not sure where to see my upload speed to YT but I have a 1G fiber up\down connection to the house so no constraint there. 2) I assume so? I just added the RTMP URL and stream key and it was live. 3) Camera property screen Shows red dot...
