    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    I'm looking to do this on the Lorex as well, loaded up the SmartPSS app, and it seems it can do it, but last time I used this appplication it totally screwed up the doorbell I had to remove it and do a reset to get it back to working.

    IPC-T2431T-AS Quality?

    Thanks for the reminder, I picked up 4 of these (DCS-2210L) a while back off kijiji for $50; they have slightly larger FOV than the cube you recommend above, just slightly. I will give one a go and see if that will work, they are small enough to be exactly what I'm looking for, although very...

    IPC-T2431T-AS Quality?

    Hmm interesting, I have this camera and there is no autotrack feature. Kind of funny (not funny) I bought this camera more than 2 years ago, it's now 50% more and costs more than the 2431T. The Amcrest though has a 4mm lens, I'd much rather have one that doesn't need to move with and has a...

    IPC-T2431T-AS Quality?

    I get all that and I'm in agreement, but this is for the basement where we let our toddler go by himself and just like to keep an eye on him. Face recognition on a frozen frame is not important. Would be ideal to find a poe/ethernet camera with 120/130 fov diagonal and good sensor like the wc3...

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Yup... this is why I would like to flash it, but don't want to be the guy that bricks it...heh

    IPC-T2431T-AS Quality?

    Hi, I recently bought a IPC-T2431T-AS to replace a WyzeCam3, and am noticing that the night and daytime quality on the IPC is not on part with the WC3. The Wyze cam has better colours, and all around better night time performance. Colours are more realistic, night shot is crips and "even" all...

    Anyone know if the Amcrest FW can be flashed to the Lorex unit?

    IPC-HDW4631C-A - any thoughts?

    I know, this is very basic principles (and I tried that with cameras that show all H/V/D options) but not quite working, hence why I asked. IPC-HDW5442T-ZE shows Field of View: Horizontal: 114°–47°, Vertical: 62°–26°, Diagonal: 136°–54°, and using the formula for 114 and 62, gives me 129.8...

    IPC-HDW4631C-A - any thoughts?

    @EMPIRETECANDY could you please tell me what the diag FOV is on this model? IPC-T5442TM-AS I can't seem to find it anywhere, I checked on this model IPC-HDW5442TM-AS (which I believe is the same camera, says EOL) but could not find there either. Also considering IPC-T5442T-ZE (same as...

    IPC-HDW4631C-A - any thoughts?

    I've returned that camera, really found the quality subpar. Looking to get this instead: IPC-T5442TM-AS I have a question on this (well any Dahua camera) and BI. Can one use the AI in the camera (person detection) to trigger BI to record? I'm fine using BI for motion detection, but if I just...

    IPC-HDW4631C-A - any thoughts?

    Thanks for the replies. I imagine all prices are USD + taxes, and shipping (?) I do like the specs on IPC-T3241T-ZAS (@sebastiantombs I think this is what you're referencing?) however I don't need varifocal (also this is not starlight sensor). The FOV at 130deg (D) is what I'm looking for. I...

    IPC-HDW4631C-A - any thoughts?

    Hi folks, I just picked up one of these cameras from Amazon (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B09Q12RGV3) and did a few searches, found this thread. If I look at the info on the camera I see this: Device Type VD-2T63-A - a further search on this model I found this model on the Vikylin site: 6MP...

    Lorex 2K doorbell

    Interesting, when it's windy it does pick it up (like an uncovered MIC) and when there is actual noise (voice, cars, etc) that noise goes away - but that noise white noise seems to be amplified otherwise. I'll sample a piece to post just so it's more clear what I'm talking about, maybe it will...

    Lorex 2K doorbell

    Does anyone get any background static noise on their Lorex 2k? I'm getting this non stop on mine, have had it replaced under warranty with a brand new unit and it's the same thing. Mine is on 5Ghz band, I am wondering if it's due to the transformer that I'm using? Would that be possible? Other...

    Auto Export BVR to MP4 in place, after midnight, on specific cameras - possible?

    Is it possible to Export (BVR file to MP4) file on specific cameras, after midnight? I have a few cameras that are set to record one file (join clips for 24hrs) every day. The next day I usually right click on the file icon in BI interface, select EXPORT and choose overwrite file (BVR). I would...

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Thanks - ok I wasn't aware the the Dahua also supports the API calls (I must have missed that in this thread). Well, it's too late now, cannot return it at this point and it's working ok for me, except the noise/static on it which is bad (although replaced with a new unit under warranty, still...

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Can anyone tell me if possible to switch from using h265 to h264 on the AD410 (through the API calls). I don't have this model, but the Lorex 2K, and was curious if that is even possible. I know on most "higher end" cameras, you have the option of changing this, just not sure if that is possible...

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Thanks. Just wanted to know if it was possible; this should be something that a user should have an option for in my opinion, rather than be forced to have that watermark. I have asked/suggested to Lorex that it should be a setting in the app to turn on/off that watermark.

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Could you confirm if it's possible to get rid of the Amcrest (I presume, I have the Lorex and it says Lorex) logo/watermark at the top left of the screen via the API commands?

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    I have the Lorex 2K which doesn't support the API calls, too bad so sad :( Substream is 720 x 576 I imagine all have the same substream, unless maybe Amcrest allows you to change it with the APIs...

    A New Doorbell

    For the record, I'm using a 16V 10A transformer; the system had 2 hard doorbells for rear/front. I put the camera on the front (as in the instructions) and there are no issues with it working. I have the Lorex 2K though, not the Dahua - but other than esthetics and firmware it's the same HW.

    A New Doorbell

    Yeah, I read your previous post and couldn't believe it. I'm tempted to order from the US amazon, but it's so expensive, the additional $35 for shipping, plus the hassle to return across the border... too bad. I have submitted a replacement request for my Lorex doorbell to Lorex. Glad I bought...

    A New Doorbell

    Can someone tell me if Amcrest has a Canadian presence? I'd like to get the AD410. I have the Lorex 2K, but I'm having an issue with noise even when there is no noise outside, I hear a clicking/white noise; not sure if this is my unit or normal (I hope not). Those that have the AD410, have you...

    A New Doorbell

    That G4 Pro camera is interesting that it has the downward facing camera for packages, sets it aside f Is it poe, or is the poe adapter used to break out DC to power it via micro usb?

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    I can confirm; on the Lorex2K I made some changes with that tool, and the video got messed up even though I made no changes to the video specs/properties. A reset changed it back to normal!

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    Is the HA supposed to be better with the Amcrest version due to the SDK/API calls; I assume that's why. -On a side note - I am using BI as well to record the stream from the doorbell (Lorex version) and I have a constant clipping sound, when there is no other sound; almost like if there is no...

    New Amcrest AD410 doorbell Cam Review

    How are you trying to stream, you can use any app that will play back a rtsp stream, like TinyCam. Amcrest Smart Home app is available in google play store, in Canada. If ita not available on the fire stick that's am amazon issue. Sideload google play store and you can get all the android apps...

    Lorex 2K doorbell

    Is/will port 80 open on the Dahua version, or is it just Amcrest that provides that port open for the SDK with those APIs? I would have opted for the Amcrest version as well if it was available via Amazon.ca. I do like the white case rather than black though!

    Lorex 2K doorbell

    There is no official ONVIF support on this doorbell platform on any of these variants, Lorex 2K, Amcrest AD410, IMOU DB61i, Dahua DH-DB6I, which are all the same same camera.
