    Hi All:

    So I installed my DB11 doorbell. (see photo below). I have an electronic chime. Installed app on phone all went well (door bell rings on dahua unit, I get video, I can talk thru it etc...) except the electronic chime does not work when door bell is actuated. I have checked and re-checked wiring it is quite simple. Any clue how to get the electronic chime to work? I put the push button that was working back in the loop instead of DB11 and all works fine.

    Thanks for any help.

    What are the ratings on the doorbell transformer? Users with 16V/10VA transformers have had issues that were resolved by getting a transformer capable of supplying more current, rated 30VA.

    I don't have any of the doorbell cams just recall reading that this had been an issue with some doorbell cams depending on how much current they draw and what the existing transformer rating is.

    This may affect you since your electronic chime is paralleled across the circuit....just a guess.

    I rebooted the iPhone and re-installed from scratch and it is now working. Can't seem to find a way to shut off the actual DB11's doorbell sound which is lame.

    Here is a photo snagged from a short video. I will play with quality some hopefully. Also the doorbell does not connect to wireless 5ghz only 2.4ghz. Hopefully futures versions will do 5ghz.

    Thanks

    Although a light is glaring a tad, I want to congratulate you on having your flag illuminated at night, perhaps from another light source. She looks great.

    I see too many that are left out after dusk, in the dark. Even worse, I see just as many that are so tattered and faded. I'd rather she not be flown at all if she's shown so little respect.

    Would anyone happen to know if the DB11 has a web configuration? I cannot find a video feed for our NVR to record. Suggestions?

    Thank you

    A Dahua NVR should find it.

    Thank you for the reply. I have a Generic NVR. It works great with the other 9 HDW5xxx cameras. All I do is set the NVR to the IP addressed assigned by router enter the username / password for the cameras on the NVR. I am guessing the DB11 does not have a configuration page like the other Dahua cameras.

    Does anyone have the setting for the DB 11? It does not show up as ONVIF. I know it's IP address and password but I can't access the video stream at all.

    Help Please.

    Well that is what I get for reading the manual. The manual says by default the name is the Serial Number. I found 3 drivers that work (see photo). I am impressed with the IR of the small wireless DB11 in total dark. (See photo) I noticed a member built an angling bracket for their doorbell. I may do that in the near future.
