    PoE Switch Options

    If you don't mind using used switch, Nortel Baystack 5520-24T-PWR Gigabit PoE Network Switch is a great choice. It's very loud, though!!!

    Yes, I did. I just realize I forgot to turn Smart Codec off. Once I turn it off, IVS comes back!

    Latest New 20180813 Firmware for DH_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea

    I am able to downgrade my IPC-HDBW4231F-AS from V2.800.0000002.0.R to V2.800.0000000.0.R. But IVS function is still missing. Does anybody experience the same? I still can't downgrade to 2.622.0000000.31.R. Is there any way to downgrade to 2.622.0000000.31.R?

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    I chose LaView over other brands for the PIR Human Detection Sensor they advertise. However, I don't believe it's working. I opened a ticket for this at LaView for a week but got no response. I am also not impressed with their Starlight sensor. I see no benefit to get the more expensive one.

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Finally have chance to play with the video setting from the LaView Net Client. Backlight compensation is disabled in app. After adjust the brightness, the image is acceptable.

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    I installed the Laview doorbell over the weekend. So far I like it. However the porch area looks very dark because of backlight. Is there any way to adjust it? Also can the doorbell speaker volume be adjusted?

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Hi dbaker, Thanks for the information. The wall mount looks interesting. It makes more sense to mount it on wall than putting it on deskstop. Do you notice any delay for notification? This has been my biggest concern since both door bell and tablet are on wifi. Looking forward to seeing your...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Can the app run on Google Home Hub or Lenovo Smart Display? I am looking for a stationary monitor solution at home so people without smart phone can still talk to visitors before opening door.

    Without any change, the notification worked for about an hour tonight. Then it stopped working again. Very frustrated. I am wonder if notification requires Dahua backend server to work? Email notification works though.

    I am having the same problem that I don't receive any notification recently. It was working before. I just realize this app was auto updated to version 4.30.000. Not sure if notification is broken by the new version.

    Starlight under $100 with micro SD

    I got impression that starlight cameras are good at low light situation with trade off of lower resolution. With brighter light, a higher resolution non-starlight cameras can do the job well. I must be wrong :)
