    DIY: Warehouse Security Cameras

    Hi All! I'm a huge fan of Dahua cameras as I've used several of them at home with a blue iris setup, but my work is now looking for some suggestions as to the best setup for their warehouses. One warehouse will house about 11 cameras (some inside and out), and the other will house about 10...

    I've settled on the 2MP Dahua Starlights but I'm not sure about lenses...

    Would this be adequate information for anyone to give me suggestions. The interior cameras show max distances and the exterior distances show the max distance I'm worried about viewing. Not sure if this helps but it's the best I could come up with. Thank you all.

    New System Requirements

    Dahua 5231R-Z vs SD59225U-HNI WDR

    Question. Is anyone using WDR during the night and actually seeing the image adjust like WDR should? I've played around with it in the past on all of my turrets and it didn't seem change the picture at all. So I ended up using either BLC or HLC. It wasn't until I enabled WDR on my PTZ did I...

    Great example of Dahua Starlight 2MP Verifocal Performance in low light

    Link to full res: https://goo.gl/photos/LmbmjqS6qPFWWQvi8 I did both images at native size so as not to cheat either cam of quality, or you of a great example. The HDW5231R-Z is 1920x1080 (2MP), the "dark" Note 5 photo is at 5312x2988 (16MP) which is why the size is so different, you can just...

    Dahua Starlight Varifocal Bullet Z5 7-35mm (IPC-HFW5231E-Z5)

    I bring you another starlight review, potentially a Dahua Starlight Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-Z) destroyer we have right here; this is the Higher Varifocal Zoom version of the Dahua Starlight Varifocal Bullet (IPC-HFW5231E-Z) and it should be basically identical in performance; except it...

    Hey all! First post from an IT guy just setting out down the IP camera path...

    Greetings! So I've been a fly on the wall here for a while and have learned much, thanks to all. I decided to dip a toe before plunging in but wanted to dip the right toe, so I ordered a HDW5231RP-Z as my first cam after seeing all the praise for it around here. Received it and mounted it...

    IPC-HDBW52131R-Z / PFM140 Starlight dome recession

    Hi guys, I decided to add my recession of HDBW5431 a starlight HDBW mini dome version IPC-HDBW5231R-Z. The main reason was not the bad low light of HDBW5431, I was not satisfied with the IR coverage and especially the wrong ir focus point problem disappointed me. This time i got the cam over...

    I present yet another Dahua Starlight, this time a fixed lens turret.. We'll see how this compares to the Varifocal.. I got a 3.6mm and it'll be going right next to my backdoor to replace my aging 3MP 4300S Bullet. This is an all metal turret with full range of adjustability for suiting any...

    Homemade starlight camera

    My idea is to put together a great starlight camera that will operate at night with minimal white LED lighting. So I need as much of your experience, especially with a lens with IR filter and a big aperture. Personally I need a camera that will cover a square area of my front yard, so I'm...

    Starlight: Varifocal vs Fixed

    The varifocal Starlight can be adjusted from 2.7mm to 12mm The non-varifocal Starlight is available in 2.8mm, 3.6mm or 6mm, depending on model (if my checking is correct) The Varifocal's motorized lens increases the price, naturally. The adjustability is "worth it", some would argue. But what...

    Dahua Ultra 2mp Starlight, 6mp or 12mp camera?

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum and I'd like some help with identifying which cameras to buy. There's a recent string of burglaries around the neighborhood, so I'd like to add another layer deterrent. I repurposed/upgraded an old gaming rig with an Ivy Bridge Xeon to act an NVR and bought a...

    Dahua Ultra Starlight Varifocal Bullet (IPC-HFW8232E-Z)

    I present the Ultra 1/1.9" Starlight Bullet, when you need the absolute best in low light performance, damned the cost. Unlike the EcoSavvy Starlights this is a BIG sensor version.. most people suck at fractions so let me put this into decimal for you: 1/2.8" = 0.357in and 1/1.9" = 0.526in...

    Dahua Starlight Mini-Dome 3.6mm (IPC-HDB4231C-AS)

    This is a all metal mini-dome, with audio and SD storage using the same sensor (Sony Starvis Exmor-R 1/2.8") as the infamous Dahua Starlight Varifocal Turret (IPC-HDW5231R-Z) Major differences from my Turret review are: Fixed Lens w/Smaller Aperture than the Varifocal Optics, comparatively...
