Hi all,

Hope someone can help me. I've bought one of Andys cameras from Amazon UK after reading all the glowing reports. I ordered a 'EmpireTech IPC-T5442T-ZE 4MP IR Vari-Focal Eyeball Starlight IP Camera Support POE and ePOE White'.

Everything is setup and working (i'm still learning my way through BI and AI).

When I use the Dahua Config Tool the camera is reported as model 'IPC-T8Z'. Have I been miss-sold the wrong camera? When I google the IPC-T8Z it looks physically identical to the IPC-T5442T-ZE but I don't know if the hardware is the same?
Whats the model number on the box and on the sticker on the camera?

This looks like you get a fake camera, i already get your email. Currently we only sell on our shops directly, no distributors on any online selling. Last time a guy bought a SD49225XA-HNR but was re-label on a very cheap ptz, so have to be very careful when you buy things online.

I'm sending the camera back for a full refund today. I've also ordered a camera from you via the ipcamtalk online shop.

David tell the truth, i will think some way to fight with the fake sellers.
Can you list them with a Warning on each of your Amazon Camera pages on the ones they are trying to sell? I know that is a pain but at least put up a Warning on each page of this fraud...

Thanks, when you get a chance can you please update the date in the firmware file as well? And any idea if 5842 will get web 5.0?
