As some of you know, I have some IP cameras in my backyard. One of them went offline recently and didn’t come back online. Upon inspecting the connection point between the camera ethernet connector and the patch cable had completely fried because of water damage. Can this Dahua camera still be revived? Let’s replace the ethernet connector and see if it still works!
In 2018 I made a video about 4K IP camera models from Dahua, since then my favorite model has been the HDW5831R. At the beginning of this year new 4K models became available in their “H265 Lite” line of cameras and I was curious how they would stack up, so, buckle up because this video is a long one!

A few years back, I made a whole series about awesome 5MP IP Cameras. Over the years they have grown old and it was time to replace them. Technology has not stood still so I started a search for the best 4K (8MP) IP Camera. After testing a lot of no-name and name brands, my choice has fallen on Dahua cameras, check out this post to read about them and watch my video including lots of demo footage!

A friend needed a simple machine he wants to use as a virtualization host. A true server grade machine wasn’t needed in this case so I built another Ryzen based server! Continue reading Home Networking: Simple Ryzen Proxmox server build (Fractal Design Core 2300)
A while back a new firmware (22.214.171.124) appeared for the Ti DaVinci DM365 and DM368 camera’s. Only recently a kind comment-er was able to find a link where to download this firmware.
Sadly, as always, there is no changelog. After testing it at least fixes 2 issues I was having with the previous versions have been fixed and who knows what else has improved! Since I’ve been running it without issues the last 2 weeks, it’s time to share it with everyone!
You can find the previous post about the firmware here, I suggest we do new replies about this firmware (and newer) in this topic.
!! A word of warning, if you are on ebay or aliexpress do not trust sellers with “Novate” in the name such as “Novate Intelligence System Company Limited” and “Novate Security World”. They are scammers and while they sell you the camera, if you have problems, they don’t respond anymore and let the shop die to open a new one with a slightly different name!

Since the first two sets of camera’s I ordered I placed a big order of new camera’s with AOTE last year. I ordered a lot of camera’s this time because I was able to combine some orders and have decided that these camera’s are worth the investment for my events. I will detail the new camera’s so you know what to expect when you buy them!
Over the last few years I’ve been gathering more and more equipment which supports Power over Ethernet such a access-points and the IP camera’s I’ve written about before.
I need something to power those POE devices! Most managable POE switches are quite expensive so I’ve been looking around for cheaper options and decided to order a “dumb” POE+ switch from China to test!
After creating a timelapse method using FFmpeg and after that using VLC a new method was discovered by one of my commentators. He dissected the firmware files and found that you can access an URL which then gives you a picture. This of course is the ideal way of generating pictures with a set time interval and I’ll walk you through the process in this post.
Someone made a comment on my original post about the 5Mpix TI DaVinci DM368 DSP camera that tpsee (the internal board manufacturer) has released firmware 188.8.131.52 for our cameras. I believe that to be worthy to open a new topic for!
