    I remember that, was great fun to watch. Was somewhat disappointed to find out later on it was staged.

    Interesting video on Stopping Package theft

    I've always found this baffling. The whole idea of leaving packages on the doorstep seems absurd to me, except perhaps in rural areas. Package theft is near zero here in the Netherlands as leaving package on the porch/doorstep unguarded basically just doesn't happen in the Netherlands and never...

    I've experienced that too, sometimes it wouldn't find it and other times it would. Try rebooting your PC and make sure IPCTestTool is the first program you run. Try connecting it to the same switch your PC is connected to if that's not already the case.

    The default is no password whatsoever. If you want it to have a password you need to set it through the app. Not all functionality is available if you don't give it a password but you can stream the rtsp feed without ever setting a password. I'm using it like that with BI. The IPCTestTool...

    Anyone Running Cat6 Cable & Mains in Parallel

    I would think that the (possibility of) a lethal shock is as important to the OP as it would be to someone at the Pentagon. I don't see why a private installation should be any less secure, especially if avoiding that particular risk pretty much entirely and without cost or effort is trivial as...

    Anyone Running Cat6 Cable & Mains in Parallel

    If that's easy to do just use burial rated cable (or at least outdoor/wet rated) and forget about trying to pull it through the conduit. That's my advice.

    Anyone Running Cat6 Cable & Mains in Parallel

    Depends on your location. I looked it up and here in the Netherlands this is against NEN1010, our local safety guidelines for low-voltage installations. Yes they are guidelines and not strictly legally binding (this has gone to court several times actually, the main reason they're not binding...

    Anyone Running Cat6 Cable & Mains in Parallel

    The direction of interference to be concerned about in this case is from 50/60Hz mains to the Ethernet cable, not the other way around. Even though that's not RF it could still cause interference but like I said with such low current and only 5 meters it's probably not going to be a problem...

    Anyone Running Cat6 Cable & Mains in Parallel

    It's not recommended to do this for safety and insurance reasons and depending on where you live may be against code. Will it work? Most probably yes, with such low current especially (low current means weak EM field means little interference). But don't come complaining here if your house burns...

    Windows client?

    I have been using this one for well over 15 years at least, very happy with it: https://www.radmin.com/ If your Internet connection is very slow you can manually configure it to use fewer colors which helps a lot but in general this performs extremely well anyway. On a LAN connection you will...

    300 yards

    Using cable glide lubricant might also help but I would definitely not try pulling through 300 yards at once, cutting up and glueing together is what I would do. And yes it's (obviously I would almost say) best to pull cable before burying. Using wider tubing/duct also helps. And although it...

    300 yards

    The ones I linked to come at the extreme ends only, not in the middle, and could be kept above ground.

    300 yards

    Indeed. I'm not sure it's something you should try (especially not with flexible duct). Perhaps simply use burrial rated CAT6 cable without any duct. In fact you should use that anyway as I can guarantee that your duct (flexible or not) is going to have water in it. If it's a lot of work to dig...

    300 yards

    I'm not familiar with the product, like I said it was simply the first thing that came up on Google. But it looks like that particular product (they have several others) goes at both ends of the connection, not in the middle. I'm pretty sure you'll need the PoE version of the extender if you...

    300 yards

    I would say optical fiber (especially if you have lots of lightning in your area) but there are also range extenders for regular CAT5/6 cable: https://www.veracityglobal.com/products/ethernet-and-poe-devices/longspan.aspx The above is simply the first hit when I Google 'long range ethernet'...

    You would need to pair your RFLink board with the doorbell, similar to what is described in this and subsequent posts: https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/yoosee-sd-m5-doorbell-1080p-poe-rtsp-onvif-only-66.40569/post-397249 Note to forum staff and readers of this post: the text preview bit in the...

    I'm going to contact them after I get the chance to do some tests with the latest firmware, so far I've always received a response from them. Might take a few more days as I'm really busy at the moment.

    I'm using this doorbell with BI without having set a password, have never used the app at all in fact as I don't have a smartphone. See previous posts about this a while back in this thread.

    Been Broken Into

    Actually, back when ISDN was still in use (it's been phased out entirely overhere) some systems allowed the use of the D-channel of ISDN to stay in touch with the central station on a continuous or at least semi-continous basis for constant monitoring. I also remember that it was hideously...

    Been Broken Into

    My response was specifically with regard to all-in-one units where that is not the case. I've never seen an all-in-one units myself by the way, all units I've ever used had separate keypads and in that case destroying the keypad is not going to accomplish anything obviously.

    Been Broken Into

    There's usually a delay before the alarm is triggered (at least that has always been my experience with alarm systems) to allow entering a ping or present a key fob so if they smash the unit within that time window I guess they might be able to prevent the alarm from sounding. Unless perhaps the...

    My sarcastic side says it's more likely they'll change the specs page, just like they did with the PIR that wasn't there :) Of course, this would be a possible and even simple change, unlike adding an actual physical PIR so don't give up all hope yet. I also found this btw, sent them an email...

    I think I posted this response from GWelltimes before: At first I thought this didn't work at all and that the fps never goes back up to 15 but I get the impression that it just takes a lot of movement for the device to register movement and go back to 15fps. Probably the same amount if takes...

    I had a look at the HiSilicon SDK a few days ago and noticed that it supports encryption of firmware. Essentially the CPU itself contains a small amount of write-once memory which is also not readable where a manufacturer can store a decryption key. If a key is stored there the CPU will use that...
