So I got an IPC-T5442T-ZE through empirecandy (thanks!). I am having some issues with recordings dropping after tripwire event (using Synology Surveillance Station). But before I do any significant trouble shooting I thought I'd update the firmware. Am I correct in assuming that I can use one from Dahua site for IPC-HDW5442T-ZE ?
Hi kaczor & Raylo32, I have several of the IPC-T5442T-ZE from Andy at EmpireTech. These are in fact the IPC-HDW5442T-ZE on the official Dahua website. Dahua controls where/who can use it's specific model numbers, therefore EmpireTech's model designations may vary slightly. Dahau also seems to use a completely different set of model numbers for marketing in the USA. But Andy's products are the real deal.No, I never have received an answer to this....
The 5442 family of cameras all use the Volt chipset as far as I know. And the 5442 family uses the ZE designation to indicate a varifocal model. The firmware version I mentioned is listed on the official Dahua webpage for the model IPC-HDW5442T-ZE. Some 5 series cameras use different chipsets, so the 5XXX in the firmware title is NOT enough to determine compatibility for a particular model.The cam I received just a few days ago is on 2.800.15OG004.0.R, Build Date: 2020-10-19. How do we know the one you reference is the correct one for this cam? Just curious so I will know what to look for. Is the 5xxx and "ZE" suffix the key identifiers? Not sure I will upgrade right away anyway since I don't really have any issues. The worst so far is mine just caught a large dog sprinting by and detected a "human". But can live with that one. Doesn't happen very often.
