    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Here have the same issue with doorbell ringers as mentioned by @David L Amazon doesn't ring the doorbell any more and leaves the package right out of the new external PIR area. UPS, USPS and FedEx do ring the doorbell. UPS wants a signature these days for most deliveries. I had issues...

    HAPPY FATHERS DAY

    I wrote this on another forum this morning: I've never written about Father's Day. It was mostly considered a card holiday in our family except for the last few years where we would have a family get together. It's been some 15 years ago that my dad has passed away (he was in his 80's). Happy...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Personally thinking the AC voltage going to the doorbell is fine. The AC voltage is being converted to DC voltage in the camera. The camera board inside of the DB draws power for the camera itself. The hardware PIR also draws power. The switch in the lens from night to day or day to night...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    At 3 AM here thinking it has to do with the PIR sensor or maybe ambient light flashing the DB? Here is an overview of my wiring. I keep adjusting the current sensor as it is very sensitive. It trips based on the input amperage draw of the DB. Note the current sensor is used to trigger a zone...

    Here is a quickie drawing of my DB. Also using Monocle Monocam for Amazon Alexa Show connectivity. Its a tad slow. IE: automation pops up doorbell video automagically or I saw "Alexa show me front door"

    Every occasion need to reset the DB2 to able to use the app . Rather than use the app to reconfigure the DB check to see if the DB is in AP mode. Scan your wireless network for the DB WAP mode. I use a Lenova Tiny here for a W2016 server. It has a Gb port and a WLAN card. I enable the WLAN...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    @pczone-uk Thinking my camera was resetting due to a ONVIF to MQTT plugin that I was running. It has not reset since I have disabled the app. It did not totally reset rather it would go to AP mode and save the rest of the settings. I would get in to the camera VIA AP mode and reconfigure it...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Here sent the RCA DB back when I purchased it because as mentioned above it was used and already registered. That said it is easy to get into the doorbell when it is in AP mode. I have outlined methodology above. My Nelly DB with Hikvision firmware has reset itself a few times now. Once...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Batch Config is part of EZViz studio and I could see it there. I am running an older version of Batch Configuration which works with ONVIF. Newer versions do not show ONVIF. You can also make changes with the Windows ONVIF application. The DB1C does not use the same firmware as the DB1...

    Yes here have been getting errors where I cannot access the DB with VLC or RTSP even though the camera is up and fine. I can get to it with Batch Configuration and make adjustments but do not see any video. Saids something like maximum users allowed. Using PFSense here too but no VLANs...

    @dkmcgowan If it is switching over to AP mode just connect to DB AP. All of your settings are still there. Just switch it from AP mode to connect to your AP and you should be good to go without doing a complete reset of the camera. I do not utilize the cloud app and have the DB...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Shut off the ONVIF to MQTT plugin running in Docker this past week and removing it today. I kept seeing these errors in the HA logs ==> PullPointSubscription request and over time these would lock up the Hikvision DB. I was using the HA ONVIF plugin but not for PIR motion and recently enabled...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    So I use the Home Assistant Alexa Media plugin. TTS is only part of the plugin. For Homeseer I send MQTT commands via mcsMQTT to Home Assistant for Alexa TTS. This is not a speech proxy for Homeseer. It is way different than using the speak command in Homeseer. Rather you configure the...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    I use Hikvision Batch Configuration for the FOV stuff. Not sure if this is a video or PIR motion detection schema. For the basic hardware motion via ONVIF I utilize an application called ONVIF2MQTT. I installed this on the Homeseer Box running in Ubuntu 20.04. @LTek, which are you interested...

    Here running Zoneminder / ONVIF I was getting weird ONVIF connection issues with other ONVIF clients. I was running a two ONVIF streams to Zoneminder. I switched the Zoneminder - ONVIF connection to RTSP and it is better. Another couple of issues I had was that the Alexa Show app wasn't...

    Ugh I had to do another hard reset and reconfigure again this week on my Laview. Had to do this some months back too. What happens when you lose connectivity?
