    DS-2CE17U8T crashes when selecting WDR/menu sluggish

    Hi all, OK so not an IP camera, but I have this camera connected to my HV 4K DVR via baluns, along with 6 other cameras using the same method without issue. But with this latest camera, the menu option is sluggish, having to press the directional arrows several times before it reacts. If I...

    Ready to upgrade DVR?

    Hi, I have a Hikvision 7208HQHI Turbo 2mp DVR for home use for a while now, happy with it, coax installed and concealed perfectly with access to power for each camera. I also have a gigabit switch at home, access to PoE switch, 100mb broadband. I used to run a couple of IP cameras over the...

    Hikvision Villa Door Station - voice playback on alarm input

    Hi, I have got the DS-KV8X02-IM metal door station and DS-KH8301-WT 7" indoor station working perfectly for my home. I also have a Turbo DVR with alarm I/O, currently use a GJD PIR to trigger an "event recording" to an assigned camera. This has given me 100% reliability in filtering out false...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    When I switch on my 18vac psu, the chime sounds once. This suggests that the chime had detected a sudden voltage increase that then triggered the chime. In my case, frequent rebooting (due to dodgy firmware) will cause the chime to sound when booted up, perhaps when sufficient power is applied...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Exactly that. Though since then I installed the LTS FW. So far, it randomly shuts down wifi and re-connects, and each this happens, the door bell rings - lost count how many times the wife had to put the telly on pause to answer to a phantom visitor! It's only 4m to the router. Can't wait for a...

    Hikvision output to digital door chime

    On my test bench, the chime did ring by itself once, but the doorbell didn’t activate and therefore nothing came through on phone. Also, there is a bit of humming on chime, perhaps overdriving the chime with more than 12vac could be the culprit. Not fitted it yet as the extension work hasn’t...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    SUCCESS! Used Fat32Formatter to force the card to format into FAT32, then the firmware upgrade worked - I'm now testing as we speak! Thanks all for your help - I'll try it out before upgrading to LTS FW.

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Found that a later fw, mine is 20170510, says that is supports QR scanning, so maybe this is the issue. However, I try to add the dav file to the root of a SanDisk Extreme 64GB XC I I Class 3 Micro SD and it doesn't seem to do anything - no voice to say it's upgrading or not, so not sure if the...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Tried all these methods, in darkness I put the phone’s brightness all the way up and then down, moved the phone in all directions and still doesn’t recognise the qr code. Sounds like the doorbell only attempts to connect to a router once the qr code is detected and attempts to use the...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Thanks, Pilot, I tried that also. Please can you describe the order in which things happen? In my mind, it’s as follows: 1) turn on doorbell and wait for blue and red flashing light 2) Generate a qr code on phone (2.4ghz WiFi network) based on ssid and password. Present to the doorbell whilst...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    But that's assuming that the doorbell is connected to the wi-fi first? Forgive me if I'm not understanding - should the doorbell just connect to your default 2.4Ghz network during the "Start configuring Wi-Fi" process, and then you authorise the doorbell to the network afterwards with your SSID...

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Can't reset it - after 5 secs it just keeps saying "Start configuring Wi-Fi", can hold for longer still but nothing happens, looks like it hasn't been set up before, otherwise the 15s rest comes into play.

    Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-Fi Doorbell chime?

    Does WPS need to be enabled on the router for the doorbell to connect to it?
