    Any recommendations? The Annke I had is no longer sold and this hikvision has the special characters limitations in the SSID

    The annke would have the same special character limitation as it is a hikvision camera. Solution? Stop using special characters.

    No the firmware for the Annke fixed it.

    then the firmware for the hik will fix it. Annke does not make any firmware. Hik makes it all.

    It's too bad there isn't an equivalent replacement of this ANNKE. Since it was discontinued it's been hard to find good indoor cameras in the $40-60 range.

    The stock firmware on the hikvision I had did not. The question was which firmware did I need to flash or can I flash the sane as on my Annke?

    because it was an earlier firmware. Just update to the latest unless your camera is a china cam.

    I think it was. I returned and went for the English version.

    I'll have to check. I'm not sure. The firmware was the latest but as you.mentioned my first was the Chinese version.

    Hello,

    Since the Annke Cube camera is not available any more, can anyone please recommend a good budget alternative?

    Many thanks

    Already seen that. Thank you.
    I was looking for a general consensus with regards to recommendations for a successor to the Annke Cube.

    It's not clear if this specific one has WiFi capability. From what I can see, the model K55s definitely has, however is a lot more pricey.

    Given the above, I'm wondering if there's any other option?
