I purchased this camera because it's overkill and I am counting that the processor will work better at a lower resolution. In this respect I was correct the 1080P frame rate during the day is a stable 25 frames per second. The picture looks very nice in daylight on this camera. This camera is replacing my other 960P GW camera that is about 1.5 years now. I am disappointed in the old cameras longevity. I bought 6 (960P) camera and half of them started dying right after the warranty expired. Why go back to GW, you may ask? I have bought other brands and they have all thus far had fuzzy night time pictures. GW has had the best low light pictures thus far. I would like to state that my personal failure rate...
This is the second 5mp GW camera I have purchased, both are perfect. This one was a little larger then I had expected but that was not a bad thing for where I wanted to use it. The picture at night with IR is 98% perfect, by that I mean almost no little white specs flying past the camera. Ghost specs are bad and this cam is 98% clear. The day picture is 100% perfect. For the money this is a great cam. Jan 8 2017...Lowering this to a two star, constant signal dropouts, if this happens when someone is trying to break into my cars then the camera is worthless. Sending back and switching to a different vendor
worst interface I've seen in a security camera. Also, it says it supports WDR but it really doesn't unless you want to run 2MP Plus it's Digital WDR not true WDR. Why would someone buy a 5MP Camera and run it at 2MP? It also says it's outdoors but the connector for the ethernet/power are not waterproof so you will need to either drill that through a wall or seal it with something. Next time I'm going to stick with a little more known Hikvision or some of the other brands. The only thing I was impressed with is it supported NFS for storage. So you could setup an NFS share on your NAS or server and push your recordings to there. FTP on the other hand doesn't look like it's directly supported like the listing suggests which is another negative. I believe you can backup your data to FTP though for what good that does.
