Yes, the Android BI app supported 2way audio out of the box for me.I have a few questions regarding my DB11, perhaps someone can help with:
1) Every few seconds my DB11 image block pixelizes almost like its adjusting focus. It does not seem sensitive to camera location (near or away from the access point).
2) BI is reporting approx 19 fps, is this typical?
3) Anyone able to get DB11 and the Android BI app to work with 2-way talk?
Hi, I solved the pixelization issue I had; I believe it's a firmware issue as another person with a new camera had the same issue. Download and install the SmartPSS tool from here: Template:SmartPSS - Dahua WikiHi,
I’m new to the forum. I’ve just had 3 IDMSS cameras fitted and DB11 video doorbell. The doorbell has been in for 2 days and is working pretty well. The IMOU app is a little slow to open on my iPhone 6, but is much quicker on my Mother’s iPhone 7. I have shared my Mother as an additional user and she’s signed in and has access to most features. The major issue is she is unable to delete video calls. In my account I’m able to slide left in message to delete, however the she has no ability to do this. Can a shared user not delete files? Also like another user the live video image pixelates every few seconds, making the image slightly fuzzy. Is this a WiFi signal issue (I have green full strength) or something else. Any ideas on how to resolve both issues would be most welcome. Thanks!!
The issue is in the video stream and you will see it regardless of the client. The PSS tool will allow you to modify and save the cameras settings.Actually, I think we may be at cross purposes. The pixelated live video is in the IMOU (formerly Lechange) app. Basshook and Silencery, are you suggesting to add the DB11 video doorbell to the IDMSS NVR set up which I have set up for 3 Dahua cameras and alter the bit rate there?
All I can tell you is that I fixed the jitter as I have outlined above with the PSS tool in Camera settings under Encode.Hi Basshook,
I spoke with the engineer who installed the doorbell and sent him a clip of the pixelated video. He explained the pixilation issue to the live stream is unlikely to be firmware related, it is almost certainly a few millisecond or so as the broadband buffers fractionally. The clip viewed is as it refreshes and causes that momentary pixilation – akin to a voice call on a mobile, albeit much superior quality on the DB11.
I explained about fixing the issue with the IDMSS tool and he said unfortunately that the IDMSS software relates solely to the main CCTV system, not the DB11 which is essentially a separate range within the Dahua portfolio of products.
He explained there aren’t really any streaming settings able to be adjusted for the DB11 other than those within the app; it’s purposely been designed as a set-up out the box and go essentially.
Lastly, IMOU have confirmed that a shared user is unable to delete video etc., only the master user
I'm one of the earliest adopters of the original DS-KB6003-WIP. As both Dahua and Hikvision have introduced newer models over the last three years, I still haven't upgraded it because they introduced no new advantages. It functions very well as a camera, and it functions very well as a doorbell. Never a problem with WiFi or anything else. If it holds up another year or two, I *MIGHT* consider replacing it if/when something much better comes along.I have not tested the original DS-KB6003-WIP (Hikvision DB1) in person, but at least based on anecdotal feedback I have seen here, the new hikvision is better in reliability, connectivity, and image quality.
Hopefully someone with direct experience can chime in.
I will at least say, compared to the dahua DB11, the current model Hikvision (laview/rca/Nelly's) is more refined.
The SD-M5 looks pretty good too, but I dont have one to directly test
