    New Reolink Wired POE Doorbell Cam ?

    Went looking for more information on this doorbell... found the following statement on another website. Not sure how accurate it is, but if factual it may be a game changer for some. Rich notification - Is a feature available with your Reolink doorbell camera. With this feature, residents will...

    New Reolink Wired POE Doorbell Cam ?

    I wouldn't hesitate to order one off Amazon due to their easy return policy... but I don't believe they're available on Amazon yet. In fact just yesterday I was on the Reolink website and was able to put one in my shopping cart and went through the checkout steps, stopping short of putting in...

    New Reolink Wired POE Doorbell Cam ?

    Correct... I was only interested in the wired version. In watching their videos it appears for the WifI version they use your exisiting 12/16V doorbell wiring to power the unit and a separate WiFi plugs into a wall receptacle somewhere in the house. Yep... I've read my fair share of Reolink...

    New Reolink Wired POE Doorbell Cam ?

    Found a few release articles and videos by Reolink posted within the last month. Per comments by Reolink I found online they claim its ONVIF and RTSP compliant. Although I've been running a YooSee SD-M5 POE doorbell somewhat successfully now for several years I check back here from time to time...

    Reolink: Deconstruction of a dangerous misleading youtube review "Finding the BEST 4K Security Camera NVR Package (Reolink vs Amcrest vs Swann)"

    Great information from all... thanks! Wanted to run this by you all Just to make sure I'm deciphering everything correctly. Here's the deal... my mailbox is 185 feet from the closest mounting position I can use. Not ideal but it is what it is. I don't need an event triggers, facial recognition...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Okay... Here's the deal... I don't use the Yoosee app. Back when I did, the video images looked great... that is until I would exit the app then videos took on the jerky appearance you see in the video I attached. NET: Per the Yousee specs the resolution is 1920x1080 5-15 fps . If I had to...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    if viewing the above video full screen on a large monitor its easier to see the jerky motion of the car. That said, I don't think its as bad as everyone makes it out to be... in fact for the purposes of a doorbell cam it works fine because movement isn't that fast (unless someone is running...

    Lorex

    Updated the Lorex firmware on my LNR6108X to version 00019 ... no significant changes that I could see. I''m still a little gun shy about the idea of loading Dahua firmware and bricking the unit since its working fine (other than the sucky interface etc). I know the cameras would still work...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    It's not great... but its all I have. A white car driving down our street from right to left. Thanks to 15fps you can see the "jerking" movement of the car as it travels past. (You'll also notice the time stamp is wrong. I never figured out a way to fix it. The camera works connected to a...

    Suggestions - Looking for a good "Mini" 4MP PTZ

    Hi mat200... thanks for the reply. Basically I'm seeking a PTZ so I can have the ability to get a closer, zoomed in image so I can view activity in our drive way (100 ft away), as well as the sidewalk approaching the front door (a distance of 25 feet) and our mail box drop area which is 200 feet...

    Suggestions - Looking for a good "Mini" 4MP PTZ

    Sorry if this has been asked a thousand times already... I found a similar thread here asking the same question... but its last activity was in 2017. I don't need auto tracking or facial recognition... just a good quality "mini" PTZ - POE, ONVIF compatible camera - with the best video quality...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Although of no help, it may make you feel better to know you're not alone. As you may recall... I am not running Blue Iris but instead have mine connected to a Lorex NVR. As you may also recall, I was never able to get the time/date set so that it would stay set without reverting back to 00:00...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Hey @whoami Congrats! Very impressive R&D. Now I'm a little bummed. If I hadn't already given up and finished my installation I would have definitely gone with your design (especially since you' did all the heavy lifting). I checked the specs and everything looks good. Like the 5v relay you...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    To be fair... "if" you install this doorbell as advertized with no modifications or attempts to make it work Blue Iris, Raspberry Pi, a PC or Mac, NVR or DVR and use a smartphone or computer via the internet to set it up and control it, then it works okay. However, like you, I also discovered...

    New RCA HSDB2A 3MP Doorbell IP Camera

    Not in regards to a HSDB2A... but similar situation. I'm in the final steps of completing the install of the YooSee SD-M5. I orderd it in black because I could get it the fastest, not because it was the color I wanted. Since I knew I was going to paint it I went to the HD big box store to check...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    As you know the IR emitters allow the camera to see through the dark and capture clear images, that said... the "quickest - cheapest and fastest way would be to simply cover them with a ring of tape (as represented here by the ring of Red around the camera lens. The yellow dots represent the...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Answering my own question: Good news - Bad news. After tearing my unit apart I can confirm the actual button type used within this doorbell is a 6x6mm momentary tactile miniature push button SPST switch. NOTE: The button you touch when pressing the doorbell is a actually free floating isolated...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    @Cinnman made reference to a set screw located on the doorbell camera lens. In the photo on the left provided by Cinnman... you can see there are two circuit boards that are sandwiched together more or less thus trapping the camera assembly. TIP: Once you get this board assembly out of doorbell...

    Speaking of Amazon... in looking for more information (i.e. hacks) on this doorbell... I found the KONX KW-05 version on Amazon France. (same model doorbell as the one I got off eBay ) You can read the reviews as well as questions and answers unfortunatley I didn't find any tidbits. I'm still...

    Thanks for the information. Went back into the NVR config file... unfortunately onvif is the only choice (no onvif1or onvif2)

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Any BlueIris users out there with this doorbell who can respond to these questions? NOTE: I don't use BlueIris... my SD-M5 is connected via POE to a Lorex NVR. 1) Does the date timestamp generated by the doorbell appear in your video captures? If so... have you be able to adjust and save the...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Resized for my own edification so I could take it all in. Definitely sounds like your on the right path. Now I'm regretting not purchasing the chime. The seller tried to perswade me. It was only another 8 bucks. If I order now I'm looking at another months before I can move forward. Sheesh.

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    As mentioned earlier I installed the YooSee app on my phone. To check out your question... I went back into the configuration settings using the app but didn't see any hardware setting(s) in relation to chime setting (mechanical or otherwise) Since I was in the app again I also tried fixing the...

    YooSee SD-M5 doorbell: 1080p, PoE, RTSP, Onvif, only $66

    Hmmm... just discovered the calendar date/time displayed on the NVR recorded video coming from the SD-M5 doorbell does not match the date time of the NVR. I incorrectly "assumed" the time/date stamp on the video would be a function of the NVR as it does with my other cameras. As it turns out...

    opps... you are correct (dyslexia kicking in... Knox not Konx) Yep.. just checked the products link page on Konxtect website and the product details don't show the power regulator or make any mention of working with a mechanical doorbell)... bummer. Will be interesting to see if Konx responds...

    I also checked for a drop to zero and got the same results. Was getting ready to respond when I saw your reply. Not to confuse the issue, but as mentioned in one of my previous posts... since YouSee is the app creator for this doorbell I believe the YouSee SD-M5 is actually a renamed KW-05 as...
