    Bought the EZVIZ Mini 360 Plus camera with the hopes of using my own software to manage it. Does anyone know if there is a basic web interface where I can access the raw video & settings? I can't seem to find one. If this camera is cloud only I'll be returning this garbage.

    +1 to what @pozzello said. From amazon's Q & A, more "NO's" from EZVIZ. I'd send it back. :idk:

    Q: Does it support rtsp protocol?
    A: Hello Athan,
    Yes, this device supports RTSP protocol
    By EZVIZ on April 26, 2017
    Q: Does this camera support rtsp or onvif?
    A: This camera supports rtsp but does not support ONVIF protocol
    By EZVIZ on February 22, 2018
    Q: Manufacturer says this supports rtsp. what is the url, port, user, pw to access rtsp stream?
    A: EZVIZ cloud devices can be setup, controlled and operated using the EZVIZ mobile/web app or EZVIZ PC studio. To guarantee the security integrity of the device, you cannot access this device using a browser.

    Thank you both for the help! This will be going back.If you have any recommendations for a small indoor PT(don't need Z) camera that does have a web interface or supports other recording software such as Milestone please let me know. I guess the $70 price tag on this was too good to be true.

    @pozzello is right...I have one of those and 4 of it's kid brother, the 720P IPM-721, also a Dahua rebrand. I've installed 4 in the last 3 years and they all work great.

    Ive bought the Ezviz Mini O 180 a few days ago. Most brands like these get promoted with cloud functions and mobile functions, but in the meantime they always can be used with the RTSP protocol when when its not stated. This is because its the most used protocol in IP Cams. You cant block that, becuase then the feed wont work. They dont like you to use RTSP with other tools , because they want you to use their Cloud platform which they can even see the cam feeds from their buyers (i saw this one time by an Cam company).

    If you want to use Ezviz in combination with RSTP, its possible.

    The line will be:

    rtsp://admin:verificationcodeonbottomofcam@x.x.x.x/h264_stream

    where admin is always admin for Ezviz devices
    The password is the verificationcode when its on the sticker on the bottom of the cam
    x.x.x.x where is your ip adress of your cam (be sure its connected)
    /h264_stream is a parameter. Dont need to be entered. Some tools need it.

    Mines looks like this:

    rtsp://admin:iforget@10.0.0.169/h264_stream

    used it on MotionEye (Raspberry Pi) and Surveillance Systems from Synology and Qnap.

    Would be even nicer it had also support for the older mpjeg protocol which uses http. Guess they arent doing that.

    Ive bought Ezviz because they use good quality sensors.

    Onvif is where it can read out parameters to change settings like video resolution, frame rates, etc. EzViz dont use onvif. More usable on high end security cams like Axis.

    FWIW, the Amcrests (re-branded Dahuas) that @pozzello and I suggested above are ONVIF.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. They generally use bottom barrel sensors as it is hikvision direct to consumer brand.
    in your particular case the camera uses a horrific small 1/4" 2mp sensor.
    You also dont understand what onvif is. Google is your friend.

    Thanks all, I went with the Amcrest Camera that was suggested above. It's not as discrete as the Ezviz cam, but right out of the box did work perfectly with my Milestone recording server. I can control the PTZ functions through the mobile app
