    What to expect 2mp vs 4 mp

    So I have the 5442t (4mp 1/1.8”) and a ipc-T3241T-ZAS (2mp 1/2.8”). Both overlook the driveway and I would like to use one more of the overview and the other slightly zoomed down the driveway as people walk up. I understand the 2mp requires less light comparably zoomed In at the same focal...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    I feel like the lights would act as a good deterrent as well as zone control for intruders. If I were to see this on someone’s garage I would approach from the side where I didn’t see it and stay in the shadows. Move low between cars and bushes. Maybe I’m overestimating criminals lol. I would...

    Worlds First Review - Dahua - IPC-Color4K-X / DH-IPC-HFW5849T1-ASE-LED - Full Color 4K Camera

    Initially I went through the router and followed the directions (that’s where it said change the name of the TAP -just the name).

    Help setting up this VPN!

    I’m just having a hard time getting blue iris to communicate through the vpn. I use the remote connection wizard and it stalls at the UPNP screen. Even when I try to have the wizard open the port it won’t work. It asks if UPNP is on, which it is. It works without being connected to the vpn and I...

    Okay so I've connected via an openvpn. Is there a port i should use over another that would be less likely to flag as suspicious? Google thought i was a robot when i checked my ip. My router has TAP mode-service type and a line for the port. Should i check off TCP and use port 443? Edit...

    I Made the plunge and am getting all set up. I got one of the above cams for now to do some testing. I'm optimizing BI and trying to get the substream settings. So I enabled it within the cameras config tool, but on BI i don't have any paths for main or sub. How can i find them?

    I did see the giant list of switches but I didn’t really know what I was looking at. I need more of glossary I guess so I can understand differences etc. I think I’ve figure it out enough to get by at this point.

    HP EliteDesk good to run BI?

    If its a matter of spending a little more to get a much better option I'm for it. I would rather overbuild than under build and have to change later. Should i look at an i9 or a newer gen? the 6th gen i7 seems to run almost the same but about $100 bucks more
