    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Although of no help, it may make you feel better to know you're not alone. As you may recall... I am not running Blue Iris but instead have mine connected to a Lorex NVR. As you may also recall, I was never able to get the time/date set so that it would stay set without reverting back to 00:00...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Hey @whoami Congrats! Very impressive R&D. Now I'm a little bummed. If I hadn't already given up and finished my installation I would have definitely gone with your design (especially since you' did all the heavy lifting). I checked the specs and everything looks good. Like the 5v relay you...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    To be fair... "if" you install this doorbell as advertized with no modifications or attempts to make it work Blue Iris, Raspberry Pi, a PC or Mac, NVR or DVR and use a smartphone or computer via the internet to set it up and control it, then it works okay. However, like you, I also discovered...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Not in regards to a HSDB2A... but similar situation. I'm in the final steps of completing the install of the YooSee SD-M5. I orderd it in black because I could get it the fastest, not because it was the color I wanted. Since I knew I was going to paint it I went to the HD big box store to check...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    As you know the IR emitters allow the camera to see through the dark and capture clear images, that said... the "quickest - cheapest and fastest way would be to simply cover them with a ring of tape (as represented here by the ring of Red around the camera lens. The yellow dots represent the...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Answering my own question: Good news - Bad news. After tearing my unit apart I can confirm the actual button type used within this doorbell is a 6x6mm momentary tactile miniature push button SPST switch. NOTE: The button you touch when pressing the doorbell is a actually free floating isolated...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    @Cinnman made reference to a set screw located on the doorbell camera lens. In the photo on the left provided by Cinnman... you can see there are two circuit boards that are sandwiched together more or less thus trapping the camera assembly. TIP: Once you get this board assembly out of doorbell...

    Speaking of Amazon... in looking for more information (i.e. hacks) on this doorbell... I found the KONX KW-05 version on Amazon France. (same model doorbell as the one I got off eBay ) You can read the reviews as well as questions and answers unfortunatley I didn't find any tidbits. I'm still...

    Thanks for the information. Went back into the NVR config file... unfortunately onvif is the only choice (no onvif1or onvif2)

    Any BlueIris users out there with this doorbell who can respond to these questions? NOTE: I don't use BlueIris... my SD-M5 is connected via POE to a Lorex NVR. 1) Does the date timestamp generated by the doorbell appear in your video captures? If so... have you be able to adjust and save the...

    Resized for my own edification so I could take it all in. Definitely sounds like your on the right path. Now I'm regretting not purchasing the chime. The seller tried to perswade me. It was only another 8 bucks. If I order now I'm looking at another months before I can move forward. Sheesh.

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    As mentioned earlier I installed the YooSee app on my phone. To check out your question... I went back into the configuration settings using the app but didn't see any hardware setting(s) in relation to chime setting (mechanical or otherwise) Since I was in the app again I also tried fixing the...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Hmmm... just discovered the calendar date/time displayed on the NVR recorded video coming from the SD-M5 doorbell does not match the date time of the NVR. I incorrectly "assumed" the time/date stamp on the video would be a function of the NVR as it does with my other cameras. As it turns out...

    opps... you are correct (dyslexia kicking in... Knox not Konx) Yep.. just checked the products link page on Konxtect website and the product details don't show the power regulator or make any mention of working with a mechanical doorbell)... bummer. Will be interesting to see if Konx responds...
