    Mp or starlight

    Yes, in my opinion, starlights are worth it. You can find some comparison videos with a google search. There are some higher megapixel Dahua starlight cameras that have come out too.
  2. Probably not enough IR light. If you can send them back, look for Hikvision ultra lowlight or Darkfighter cameras, much better at night. Or you could try an external IR light, something like this. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MTXSJP9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05__o00_s00?creativeASIN=B01MTXSJP9&linkCode=w61&imprToken=B4w1mXOVAXLJzqzmoxI2GA&slotNum=1&tag=ipctk-20&ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. Sometimes symptoms like that might indicate a power supply problem. The ir lights coming on push it over the edge. Do you have another power supply to test? Another possibly could be the power connection, try a different cable.
  4. I agree with the 2 previous posts. Move the one so that it is not reflecting off the wall, and clean those spider webs. I have to go outside a couple of times a week with a broom to clean spider webs. And clean those lenses for any rain spots.
  5. Did you try the Hikvision settings on NVR? Does the NVR and camera support ONVIF protocol? Try downloading the ONVIF device manager and see if it can connect to the cameras. When mixing brands of cameras with NVR it is usually done with ONVIF.

    Hikvision Motion emails

    Hikvision does not have geofencing, look to see if Control4 does have it.
  8. You could try lowering the frame rate FPS to 15 or even 12 on the cameras. And match the I Frame Interval to the same as FPS.
  9. I don't think it's a varifocal camera, ie no zoom.
  10. Ahhh, the life story of a spam company.
  11. Fenderman does have a unique way getting his message across. 😮 Even if you don't like him, there is much valuable info at that site.
  12. Post some links to the 2 types of cameras.

    Any reliable makes?

    Wireless is not reliable because of interference from other wireless items/gadgets.
  14. As for me, I would trust factory specs over personal opinions in forums.
