This content is largely outdated but serves as a historical reference to the previous usage of cameras at the hackspace.
The different cameras we use:
Dahua IPC-HFW4300S (Main Room & Ground Floor)
As of October 2015, the main room camera is now a 3.0 megapixel (capable) camera. These cameras have an infrared output that shows a black and white image when the lights are turned off. The Dahua was chosen for its easy integration into ZoneMinder, its impressive price-performance ratio, and simple management.
We have a physically-modified version outside pointed at the gate.
