    Auto tracking Performance - SD4 vs SD5 vs SD8

    Mine (49225XA) is roughly 80% hit as far as tracking. I must have tweaked it 20,000 times to get the best results. Every field of view is different so what works for one may not work for others. Like it was mentioned here, use other cameras as spotters. This does not work for me because of...

    Review - Dahua SD49225XA-HNR 2MP 25x Starlight + IR PTZ AI Camera with Deep IVS & SMD Plus

    Deepstack is greek to me. I really have to sit down and read through what it is all about.

    Review - Dahua SD49225XA-HNR 2MP 25x Starlight + IR PTZ AI Camera with Deep IVS & SMD Plus

    Takes soooo much time to find the sweet spot. You will find that there will be so many little things you want to control but can't. I also experience the loss of track when a target stops however I find it is a double edged sword. There may be times when another target is at the home position...

    Where is the reset button on a Hikvision DS-2DE4A425IW-DE PTZ Camera

    I am looking for a replacement / upgrade from my fixed camera and was eyeballing this camera. How has it been and can you offer any insight as to any issues?

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    Just want to say that this setup was working fine for weeks. Will try the wiki instructions this weekend.

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    Before whatever changed, all 8 cameras recording full time, CPU was hovering around 13%.

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    Not saying I7 means that much, just saying it isn't an 10 year old I3. Sub streams are implemented.

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    My backup BI laptop just can't work properly. it is a 2 year old. Dell XPS 9570 with I7 & 16G ram. It was really great when I used it for 4K video editing and other intensive applications. Haven't spent much time diagnosing but V5 is just not working right and continuously pegs the processor at...

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    Noticed that yesterday's latest stable update is no longer latest stable version. The latest stable version is now from June LOL. Glad to see at least they are working on it. Just have to laugh that I am attempting to create a backup plan of a backup plan and BI has been shitting the bed so...

    Blue Iris forcing updates?

    I have 2 machines running BI. I purchased 2 licenses. Both systems run on the same network. Both set to not update since I usually wait until absolutely necessary. Had problems caused by crappy updates so I shut it off. Here is what's annoying. Out of the blue, 2 cameras display "No Signal" in...

    Recommendation for a small format PTZ with optical zoom

    Had it ordered and now seeing it cant be mounted on a wall. That sucks. Not mounting another bulky thing off the house. The search continues.

    Recommendation for a small format PTZ with optical zoom

    Yea I do expect compromise. Maybe I will mount an IR illuminator. I am very aware of how bad domes reflect IR. It'll help keep spiders away so I will have to clam up and run another wire.

    Recommendation for a small format PTZ with optical zoom

    Thank you. Noticed in the review that other IR illumination was used for night captures. I was kind of hoping to have IR built in. I admit I am being lazy. I really don't want to have to mount other devices and run more cabling to power illuminators. Maybe asking for too much.

    Recommendation for a small format PTZ with optical zoom

    Hello all. I currently have a Dahua 5231 Varifocal in my back yard and although I want to go with a PTZ, I don't want to go with one requiring a mount like the larger ones with a bracket. My front yard PTZ is a Dahua 49225 which is excellent but I want a smaller format for the backyard. It's...

    A browser that WORKS for camera interface

    my newer Dahuas work fine, my 5231s (4) that are roughly 5 years old are the ones that are bastards. Maybe a FW update will resolve the issue. I shut off the automatic update checking cause this has caused so many problems.

    A browser that WORKS for camera interface

    So have I and on this same PC. Something changed and it beats the F out of me what changed. All updates are off so no clue. If you ever end up with issues, the Palemoon 32 worked.

    A browser that WORKS for camera interface

    Thank you for your input. Palemoon 32 bit worked. Glad it did. Couldn't setup the IVS rules and turn on motion detection after installing sd cards without a working browser. For the record, Opera, Firefox, IE, Chrome and Edge all failed to allow normal Dahua camera interface. WTFF!! ANNOYING

    A browser that WORKS for camera interface

    For years, this has been an issue. Used IE forever but for some reason, 2 of my cams completely done nothing after entering credentials. Tried the NACL plug in on Chrome.. doesn't work and Palemoons download page just errors out for the Americas installation. Been using Edge for months and it...

    V4 as a backup..2 newer Dahuas keep dropping out

    After having 2 interesting events happening and not being able to review them because of 1) unknown pc shutdown and 2) scheduled reboot at 2am missing an earthquake at 2:02am, I am attempting to have a backup. Long story short, on an old V4 version of BI, 2 newer Dahuas keep displaying "no...

    BI 5.4.9.7 problem or IE configuration problem on Dahua SD49225XA-HNR PTZ

    Weird.. had my 49225 set up to generic onvif too and on 5.4.9.8 there is no Dahua New V4.

    Where should i start to troubleshoot this problem?

    My 5241E is not a PTZ so needing an external power supply isn't the fix. In fact, I have 2 of these and both are powered with a POE+ switch but the one with the issue is attached to another POE+ switch down the line. The downstream switch has 2 cameras attached with only one having an issue...

    Where should i start to troubleshoot this problem?

    This isn't my case. Not saying it isn't tubac's problem though. I replaced a Dahua 5231 with a 5241E and my problem persisted. Completely thought it was the camera. I am leaning towards Looney's advice, that it may be the switch. What is weird is I swapped ports on the back of the switch between...

    Where should i start to troubleshoot this problem?

    Following. I have the same exact problem. Tried almost everything but apparently not what is needed. Just restarted BI tonight because it has been intermittently taching out my PC CPU. In 3 hours, my affected camera shows 5 no signal. Cable was replaced, tried switching ports on the POE with...

    IPC-T5442T-ZE No picture on Zoom/Focus page

    I will have to check out Pale Moon. IE blows! I have 6 Dahuas. 2 with the same exact FW.. one works with IE, the other doesn't. Installed Smart PSS but it is an all new learning curve to use it to set up IVS and other settings. I need to be less lazy and just sit and learn. Really though...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    Have not tried to unplug it. Trying out what wittaj suggested. BI is possibly detected the very dark image as signal loss. Not sure but trying that first. For me, it is best to try one adjustment at a time... so I know specifically what the deal was.

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    I get the monochrome thing, it makes sense. Was wondering why the newest cam was having the issue. Just unchecked what you said and reset the counters in BI. Haven't (luckily) had any issue between day and night but I am leaving it BW 24/7. Have numerous other cameras to identify colors. As a...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    In trying to diagnose a frequent "No Signal" which is random. I unplugged my 5241 for a minute and plugged it back in. Focus was off. I don't know if Blue Iris has anything to do with it. In BI, I made sure the PTZ screen is unchecked. I have set focus to manual and specifically had the focus at...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    Had a delay from Amazon on the camera so after 3 days of no tracking progress I ordered a second IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E Both arrived a few days ago and after setting up the one camera for LPR, I decided to keep the second one as well, even though it was obviously a returned unit. Messed up lens...

    My Speeding Dectector Setup

    Man, what a read! One thing I can relate to is the bullshit you get when people don't like being exposed. There are damn trolls everywhere. Unrelated to speeding, we have a problem with people not picking up dog crap. Driving along our main road, I witnessed a young man not picking up his dogs...
