Don't forget to add GST and $38 customs fees on that order. Seems to be about NZ$230/camera incl GST. I sell them for NZ $250 incl GST with 2 years warranty for the exact same model.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Hey guys, I'm using 4x aircams spread over 3 offices atm and the quality is pretty crap. The software is good though (the new airvision beta fixes most of the previous issues). One of the appeals is I can run the NVR as another VM and also easily remotely have cameras from NVRs. If I switch to Dahua what NVR should I go for?

I recommend NVR+ if you want a software app or the Dahua NVR if you want a rock solid embedded solution.

Thanks Sbiddle. A friend is also looking at 2x Dahua cameras to catch someone coming into his carport and scratching his car. NVR+ may be a little too much for that. What should he use? Do the cameras have something or perhaps Zoneminder?

Hi Zeon,

Have a look at BlueIris. I'm currently running an HFW-2100 plus a 720p web-cam on an older laptop. I've found BlueIris really good to customize your setup from basic, to really tweaking a tonne of preferences for each camera, and the system.

Have similar systems at my folk's place, and at a friends local shop. Both happy with the software too.

There's a 15-day trial available if you wanted to checkout the features. There's regular updates and feature add-ons too.

Would run fine on a VM with IP cameras (harder for USB devices), obviously dependent on the available underlying hardware.

My 2c worth.

You can use Dahua PSS. It's a very powerful app but the UI isn't great.

NVR+ has a great UI and the ability to have remote clients via web or mobile, something PSS doesn't support.

Are the Dahua IPC-HFW2100 or the Dahua IPC-HFW3200S still the best cameras for these prices? Has anyone got a coupon code for AliExpress?

I'm going to use the camera with my Synology DS-112J

I have received more stock of the Dahua IPC-HFW2100. Still $250 incl GST with 2 year warranty. Have ZyXel 8 port (4 port PoE) switches now for $150 incl GST with 1 year warranty. These have built in PSU and much more nicer build quality.

Hi guys,

Need some help here. I got Dahua HFW2100 hooked up to a Synology DS-213J. I have setup motion detection within Surveillance Station using the default settings of Detection Sensitivity=90 and Threshold=10, and I found it to be too sensitive. Any changes to sun light and rain will trigger the motion detection at the moment.

Can someone explain the difference between the 2 values for me please? The definition from synology is kinda confusing, for me anyway:

Detection sensitivity: The sensitivity of motion detection. If you set a smaller value, motion detection will be less sensitive and will only be triggered when the calculated difference between a series of frames is larger than the specified value.
Threshold: The threshold of motion detection. If you set a larger threshold, motion detection will be triggered when there is larger motion, or when the calculated difference between a series of frames exceeds the specified threshold.

Cheers
Jack

I haven't played with any of those small models (which are part of a new range of kit) but I am looking at one for a project. I've yet to strike any Dahua gear that's a "dud" so would expect performance to be good.

Only guessing here, I've never seen the software and never played with camera motion detection... but I'd say.

Threshold - is the amount of difference between a series of frames required to be classed as movement, this is the trigger for the sensitivity portion. (Bigger number is less sensitive)
Sensitivity - is the amount of movement (defined above) required to trigger the recording. (Bigger number is more sensitive)

So.  Threshold triggers motion detection, then Sensitivity (of the motion detection) decides whether there is enough motion to trigger a recording.

A stab at some scenarios based on imaginary medium settings:
- A bird flying past wouldn't meet the threshold, so no motion detection is done, the bird is flat out ignored.
- A cat meets the threshold, and so motion detection begins. The cat doesn't produce enough change in images, so nothing is recorded.
- A person meets the threshold, and so motion detection begins. Significant movement is detected, and a recording begins.
- A cat meets the threshold, and so motion detection begins. The cat doesn't produce enough change in images, but the person that scared it does and a recording begins.
- Several cats meet the threshold, and so motion detection begins. The cat orgy on your lawn is significant movement, and a recording begins. 

And with a high threshold and a high sensitivity it might be possible to achieve the following.
- A cat playing on the lawn doesn't meet the threshold, so no motion detection is done, the cat is flat out ignored.
- A person meets the threshold, and so motion detection begins. The person is gone, but the cat playing on the lawn is considered movement and so a recording begins.

... I think.

Getting stock of Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I. It's a 3MP Vandal proof dome. Can also record directly to a NAS via NFS.

$300 incl GST with 1 year warranty.

I have been playing around with X-Protect Go. It's free version allows up to 8 IP cameras and can hold recording for up to 5 days. This is PLENTY for most users out there. I prefer it over Blue Iris now for couple of reasons. Free and less CPU hog.

edit - They also have mobile apps available. It's a great AIO package available for free for residential and business customers.
