Hey guys, been a long time since I was up here. My esc cam finally died after several years of use. Have no idea what happened to it, it was still getting power as you could see the IR lights come on at night but everything else was dead. It would not connect, get an ip or anything.
Anyways, I just picked up the reolink https://smile.amazon.com/POE-Waterproof-4-Megapixel-Surveillance-Reolink/dp/B01AHXEHYY/ref=pd_sim_421_13?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=AV3WNGFS6HKYVF7T9YNF
camera and so far it seems pretty decent for the price. Setup was a breeze in its own software but in blue iris it was a bit of a huge pain. Seems no matter what id and password I made, it would only accept logging in as user admin. I could log into its own software with my user id but not blue iris. It took some tweaking but I finally got the ghosting to stop. Unfortunately I had to put it in decoder compatibility mode and that stopped the ghosting. Im running it at 2560x1440 @20fps and it along with my 3 other dinky foscams, I run at about 13% cpu. So, anyone else have this camera? Whats your thoughts on it? For the price I think its pretty decent, the picture is fine and the one thing I have missed from my old logitech cameras was sound. I am very happy that this has sound and it is comparable to my old logitech cameras. Its one way only and to turn it on, you have to go into the software it came with and turn on audio in recordings and then it works.
I would like to ask, anyone able to get more than 9fps when in IR mode? I have not been able to get that any higher.
Here are a few screen captures from inside blue iris recordings. The time stamp and name are all from within the camera. It seems you might have to download them to see them in their full size, viewing online shrinks it.https://smile.amazon.com/clouddrive/share/8RJZqSc4x3BBcz8vluH4LrScUT616RFAaHCTMStWX4q?ref_=cd_ph_share_link_copy
