LTS or HITVISION cameras?

Post by josephchrzempiec » Mon Mar 02, 2020 8:31 am

Hello a guy on youtube i follow uses blue iris software and I'm currently looking into it and seeing some awesome things on and about it. But iwas wondering something. Sense i deal with a lot of HIKVISION and LTS cameras that are POE network cameras does Blue Iris software work on cameras like theses? I only saw one or two places where there someone is kinda helping that person but never no answer if any cameras from hikvision or lts cameras work.

Can someone please help me to guide me in the right place?

I purchased a HikVision camera and had it working on BI version 4 for a week or so before I sent the camera back due to it not performing as well as I wanted in low light. I haven't tried LTS but if they support RTSP they should work.

You need to review the spec for the cameras. I use Dahua Starlight cams, and they really are excellent at night. My DH-IPC-HDW5231R-ZE shows as:

Min illumination:
0.006Lux/F1.6 ( Color,1/3s,30IRE)
0.05Lux/F1.6 ( Color,1/30s,30IRE)
0Lux/F1.6 (IR on)".

A truly excellent camera in the dark. My recent purchase of DH-SD22204UE-GN was driven by wanting similar specs:

Minimum Illumination:
Color: 0.005Lux@F1.6; B/W: 0.0005Lux@F1.6

And no surprise, they are also excellent in the dark.

If your chosen camera is anywhere near those spec's, then I think you will be happy with it. These Dahua cameras can see in colour when my eyes (and the old analogue SD cams) can only see darkness :idea:
BI5 v54402 x64 | Win10 20H2 | Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-ZE, Foscam R2, Ertech 4MP, Neos2, 2 SD cams | BI5:1 i5-3330, 16GB Ram, Multiple SSD and HD | Homeseer HSPhone | TVMosaic | BI5:2 Ryzen 1800X, 16GB Ram, Multiple SSD and HD | Homeseer 4 | Emby | DVBViewer.
