    Monocle: View IP Cameras with Alexa (Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV, Fire Tablet)

    Just a followup on this. The Fire HD8 would not work with AAC set or the Dahua 8mp camera, just purchased and installed an Echo Show which works fine on /cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=2 and then tried the Fire HD and that also now works so it seems the Show set some flags that the Fire...

    Monocle: View IP Cameras with Alexa (Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV, Fire Tablet)

    Looking around that seems the only way but to have to load 8 year old software on Windows 10 released 3 years ago seems ridiculous to me.

    Monocle: View IP Cameras with Alexa (Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV, Fire Tablet)

    Yes it is annoying when the tablet is in your hand and the Dot 10 feet away responds!, hopefully when the new "Show Mode Charging Dock for Fire HD" is released in July the software update will mute non show mode devices. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BNXZDJ3

    Monocle: View IP Cameras with Alexa (Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV, Fire Tablet)

    I tried /cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0 and the working camera could not be found, back to /live and all working so I then changed audio to AAC and it could not be found, back to G711 and working sound. Both cameras are set to H264 and I cannot try the proxy server as it fails to load on...

    Monocle: View IP Cameras with Alexa (Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV, Fire Tablet)

    Just installed this skill running on my Fire 8" HD with mixed results. Using a Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-ZE it works fine but with the same settings (and it works in VLC) the Dahua IPC-HDW5831R-ZE just responds "Hmm..The camera is not responding". Both cameras are on the latest firmware...

    Ubiquiti Nano M5 Mininum Distance

    Yes complete overkill but I will be adding 2 more Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-ZE and will also have a Ubiquiti AC Mesh Pro for the front drive added. Used the DFS channel to keep it clear but it takes ages to startup because of it!, luckily Ubiquiti does not need rebooting unless it updates the firmware.

    Ubiquiti Nano M5 Mininum Distance

    I use a pair of Ubiquiti NanoStation 5AC's to bridge from the house to the garage, 30 feet at most. They are not pointing at each other, in fact they are 90 degrees out but I still get the following results. Not bad at £50 each (or $50 in the US).

    Newbie difficulties with IPC-HDW5231R-ZE

    I have 3 IPC-HDW5231R-ZE and an IPC-HDW5831R-ZE (thanks Andy!), all running fine on a 24 port UniFi Switch US‑24‑250W (with 4 x upgraded fans) and no problem at all. I fired up the 8 port Unifi Switch US‑8‑60W (4 POE port version), connected to the 24 Port and moved one camera onto that and it...

    EmpireTecAndy fast DHL shipping!!

    Is UK import tax free guaranteed or were you just lucky, obviously not delivered by DHL who always find some excuse to add "Handling Fees", I would like a few Dahua as I need to replace a Hikvision that keeps resetting the video resolution every day. 9 days delivery is fine by me.
