    Annke cube wifi issue

    So apparently the Annke camera cannot use apostrophe in SSIDs. I emailed support and looked in the help and they said to remove the character but I cannot get the cam to take my SSID. My LaView had this issue but a firmware update fixed it. I'm on the latest firmware in the Annke. I61DR Sent...

    BI crashes when watchdog is enabled.

    I was testing BI Tools and noticed when I enable Watchdog web server monitor it crashes BI every minute if so. Turning it off removed the crashes from BI. I'm sure that isn't the intended function. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    LaView vs Amcrest or other

    I was looking at LaView 1080P HD IP Wi-Fi Wireless as a replacement for two old Foscams that died on me What are your thoughts on LaView? I thought I wanted pan and zoom but the field of view is actually better for what I need it for. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Cameras have been offline recently

    Here is the situation. I have 4 cameras in my BI setup. Lately, they have been dropping offline. I can't hit them from my local network with IP and port. I did assign ips to each camera in my router. The weird thing is hours later they show up again. I didn't think anything of this until it...

    Cannot see cameras in Android app anymore

    I can see the previews but when I click on any of the cameras it just loads and loads and I get a black screen. The cameras are working and I can see them on my PC no problem but I can no longer get the feed to show when I'm viewing a camera live. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Outdoor camera without wiring

    I am looking to install a camera outside in several spots. I'm in AZ so the heat and monsoons are the biggest concerns. I was wondering if there was way to install without running electrical wires as I do not know how to do that and didn't want to hire. I do have 3 outdoors in my yard...

    LaView Cube cam and motion detection

    I currently have a Laview cam as a front door camera. It works great in the day, not well at night due to reflection of the window (it is indoors). I have a covered walkway where the camera is pointed. This works well but there is no light to see people clearly when they approach. I have a...

    LaView LV-PC902F2-W: wifi and color issues

    I just recently purchased a Laview Cube Cam. I am able to access the camera via Ethernet but it will not take my SSID wifi because I have a ' in the name. The odd thing is this doesn't affect any of my other 30 wifi devices. So it will not connect to the wifi due to the name. So do I have to...
