    Recommended Hikvision Driveway Camera (4MP or 8MP, ColurVue or Accusense G2?)

    I currently have an outdated Hikvision DS-2CD2532F-IS 3MP Mini Dome with 4mm lens, but it really sucks at night. The street light glares off the mini dome and all detail is lost. My turret in the backyard is much better. I know there is the ColorVue vs Accusense G2 options, and the 4MP vs 8MP...

    NA Models of 5231 & 5442?

    Just out of curiosity are there Dahua cams intended for the North American market that directly match the specs of the now famous 5231 EZ (turret) and the new 5442 that some say replaces or competes well against the 5231? Are the same exact cams in NA but sold under a different model number and...

    Dome versus Turret?

    I prefer Dome, we live in an area that is still being developed, with large open spaces, very high winds, and lots of dust blowing. Dome sounds better to me in this scenario. I'm concerned the dust might get into some of the gaps I see in the turrets. Everyone I call for buying and...

    Hi Y'all, First post, I've been lurking for a bit though. I'm moving into a new property soon and I'm looking to get myself some IP cameras. I've set my sights on Dahua or Hikvision but I'm leaning slightly towards to Dahua because of the price. I'm based in the UK, it's difficult to find these...

    Dahua turret with audio
