    Setup Help Needed to Access Camera IPC-T5442TM-AS-LED

    Thanks - to be honest i thought this would be a good camera to cover the front / carport area but I think it maybe best suited elsewhere. For example above the garage or around the outside garage area maybe a good fit. I think the door bell would be sufficient to capture the front area. I do...

    Setup Help Needed to Access Camera IPC-T5442TM-AS-LED

    Thank you for all the information. Should I do the setting changes directly in the Dahua config app, right? Also I noticed this camera has two lights on the bottom that turned on automatically at night when in my room when it went dark. I suspect the settings will have a control for these as...

    Thank you - yes needed a hard reset - had to youtube a bit but figured it out. Next step is how to improve the picture quality because its grainy quality. FYI - it took a bit of time but I was then able to also connect it to the Lorex system after entering in the username/password set on the...

    Setup Help Needed to Access Camera IPC-T5442TM-AS-LED

    LOL - I just found out there is a Dahua Tool and was coming here to post. So I know the problem the IP is in some 10.1.x.x range but how do I reset this device so I can set the password? This was already intialized and the DHCP IP is not getting picked up for some reason. It seems I need to...

    Costco Lorex System Adding Non Lorex Cameras?

    Costco Lorex System Adding Non Lorex Cameras?

    Can I ask why your opinion would change on the license plate? I was thinking of getting one of IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E and IPC-T5442TM-AS-LED S2 possibly to plug in the Lorex DVR. Otherwise if I need more was going to see if just getting an independent NVR (Dahura or other brand) or possibly Blue...

    Can you link the camera you bought? I have bought this system from Costco which comes with 6 cameras but want to install two more when i begin the project.
