Dahua cameras

by grege » Thu Oct 15, 2015 1:37 pm


I'm looking to add some Dahua cameras to my system. The model numbers are IPC-HFW2300R-Z and IPC-HDBW2300R-Z. What else do you need to know?

Hi Greg,

I looked into both models and found that they support ONVIF. You should be able to connect each camera to Sighthound Video by following the directions in this article:

If you encounter any issues setting these cameras up we'll be happy to assist you further.

Dahua cameras should work with the following URL (set to Other IP Camera > RTSP):


Cameras have only one channel, but other devices (NVRs) have multiple channels. The subtype defines the stream: 0=main stream (high quality), 1=sub stream (lower quality).

I hope Sighthound could make a camera definition "Dahua Generic" as there are tons of them out there right now, plus many more rebranded models. It would be great to select the channel and stream from the interface and not mess around with the URL.

Thanks - just confirming that this works well with the Dahua IPC HFW1431SP which seems to be a good, well priced PoE IP camera (early days though!). The URLs are documented on the Dahua wiki (not sure if this is official).

Cheers, Martin
