Just plug in the serial number and login credentials and it just works. Is the Blue Iris mobile app similar...

    Dahua 4K for low light night vision

    Recently installed some IPC-HDW2831T-AS-S2 and wasn't real impressed with the nighttime picture quality. I think my old 4MP dahua cameras were better. Any advice for which dahua 8MP camera looks best at night. This is viewing a lighted parking lot so not total darkness.
