Maybe most of the purchasers got the 2019-11-13 firmware version. That's running on 5 of my IP5M-T1179 cameras that I bought on Amazon in late 2020 and early 2021. They've been running without problems since I installed them.Thanks for your work on this issue and keeping us in the loop. I bought one from amazon in Feb., got COVID with pneumonia a week later and by the time I was up to installing it, it was so hot outdoors I just could not deal with it. So I guess it's a good thing its still in the box but I am looking forward to this issue being resolved.
Amcrest sold TONS of these through promotions and through amazon and if they don't get it resolved soon I would think TONS of people will lose confidence in their products and may erase "Amcrest' from their future purchasing plans.
Thanks again...and fingers crossed!
