    BI5 LPR Setup Help

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a thread or guide for setting up the LPR in BI5? I enabled AI and that's pretty much all I did. Looking for something in layman's terms, literally a guide that says "click here" and "check this box" Thanks! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    No Audio when recording clips (Android)

    Just as the title states. Audio during live and playback, but not when I save/export a clip. Works on PC just fine, live, playback and export. Known issue, setting, or user error? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    IR next to a wall

    Hey all, I have 2 cams that, at night, the IR focuses elsewhere. 1 cam is at an extreme angle such that the wall of my house lights up at night, and the actual walkway ends up being dark. The other cam, because I rotated it 180*, has the rain gutter obstructing it's view (which is fine by...

    NSC-DB1 vs NA-KB6013-WIP

    Currently have a Skybell HD for ADC, and it constantly needs to be reset, deleted & re-added, the button sticks causing it to reset, and the motion sensor lens cracked in less than 1 year. I was planning on getting the NSC-DB1 since ADC integration isn't as important as I wanted it to be. I...

    Painting Cameras Black?

    I know this has been asked a handful of times, but it doesn't appear to have ever been confirmed.. Will painting my cameras black harm them? I have 6 Dahua cams (5 turret, 1 bullet).
