    Intro and questions

    As always... my 5 cents: is it possible to run a network data cable from the house to sidewalk area? Could be fake mailbox post, fake landscape rock, on that light itself (is that your like or city/county light?)

    DMSS and it's bugs - it drives me crazy!

    time to get a new router :) VPN is in your future one way or another.

    DMSS and it's bugs - it drives me crazy!

    oh yes...Frontier. Have bumped into them in northern NV. Good luck with that :) Are you saying a this specific router does not handle VPN at all?

    DMSS and it's bugs - it drives me crazy!

    Hmm.... Google cellular WiFi "should" support VPN. I just recently swapped from Google Fi cellular service to Charter Spectrum cellular service. Back when I had a Pixel 3 on Google Fi cellular service, I could use my UDM RADIUS VPN server (though, it timed out after so many seconds to a...

    Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

    there is a home assistant Dahua IP camera integration that would solve your issue, if using HA. Dunno's about HomeSeer or other platforms.

    Can't get cameras to sync correctly with proper time all the time

    there ya go's. Pain in butt to manually change the DST but I guess it does seem to change dates decade to decade (totally gone, would be my vote). Plus, Dahua cameras are sold all over the world so it makes sense for the engineers to rely on the local technicians to input the DST according to...

    Unifi Dream Machine

    I am unaware of what you mean by 'UDM does not support ONVIF'. Does that relate to cameras? What bugs me about the UDM series is that you can not see who is logged on to the internal VPN as a client. Also, pulling up firewall logs (did a packet pass thru or drop? who knows!) is non-existant...

    Can't get cameras to sync correctly with proper time all the time

    I use Chrony add-on for Home Assistant. It's a local LAN NTP server. All of my network (router, cameras, computers, etc) check into it every 30 minutes. In each camera, I did setup DST (input the month and day). I am using Dahua cameras. maybe I got lucky but all 25 cameras keep the same...

    DMSS and it's bugs - it drives me crazy!

    yes. with my PTZ, I can manually rotate it by moving the ball that is in the center of the arrow, left or right or wherever and the PTZ rotates and can zoom in/out. Can also select pre-selected presets.

    Review-IP Villa Outdoor Doorbell Station & Indoor Monitor Kit

    I just remembered...I did use the LAN IN to block camera network from going out. Then my UDM somehow broke and I had to do factory reset. I think I'll go back to LAN IN 'reject' for the cameras. On my todo list #12.

    Unifi Dream Machine

    I had....some issue... something completely wiped my config. Not sure what happened but I factory reset, installed latest greatest firmware. Other than that...it works great. I do not need 1000000000MB fiber connection to my house so the limit of 850mb down with the UDM is fine with me. Nor...

    Review-IP Villa Outdoor Doorbell Station & Indoor Monitor Kit

    I was going along the lines from the suggestion of a YouTuber who "says" IT guys for 10 years and knows Ubiquiti and UDM really well. He could be wrong! But I did a general search on how to block cameras from the internet... all said to use WAN OUT, so I ran with that. I do have a rule not...

    Review-IP Villa Outdoor Doorbell Station & Indoor Monitor Kit

    I am keeping this info in this posting of the review of the VTO2202 and VTH's in the hopes this may aid those down the road that encounter such problems. As to your quetions... WAN IN rules? None. UDM router uses IMPLICIT rules. None come in, AOK to go out. Do I have uPNP enabled? As I have...
