    BI-5 Remote Management? Anyone using it?

    Worked once to pull some footage of someone who backed into my car, but now it just constantly crashes. Served its purpose i guess

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Generally you're better off connecting to the 2.4ghz band because this needs to penetrate an outside wall. It uses less than 5mbit so you just need a stable, not necessarily fast, connection

    Sweet! LTS is releasing an ONVIF compatible doorbell with SD card slot and 940nm IR

    I don't use it, but it's nice to have. Most of my "visitors" are just Amazon deliveries, which they just leave. Everyone else are just holy people or salesmen, so I just ignore.

    Sweet! LTS is releasing an ONVIF compatible doorbell with SD card slot and 940nm IR

    All I can think of is that it is meant to confirm intercom request or confirm button push, but ding dong isn't appropriate. It's like if you heard your ringtone every time you send a text. It's so ridiculous that people walking on the other side of the street turn their heads to see what the...

    Isolated cameras -- How do I pull the substream if they don't have internet?

    Not sure what the proper lingo for this is, so i'm having difficulty searching. My setup: Camera -> Switch -> BI PC -> router (via wan) With this setup, my cameras have no access to the internet. I'm not doing anything tricky with VLANS. I just have the cameras set to a static IP and left the...
