    Looking at the videos, are a few issues with the image quality both day and night, but then again for $99, you can't really complain. Good value for a home user.

    What/what does this camera phone home too?

    I ran a packet capture and see UDP data going to the following after only a few minutes:

    47.91.64.0/19
    47.88.0.0/14
    72.21.192.0/19
    47.91.96.0/19
    94.177.160.0/19

    That is for the P2P service. It's Alibaba's USA servers. You can turn that off if you choose not to use the P2P and do port forwarding instead. To do so, simply turn this off:

    What is the latest firmware?

    I see nowhere on the GoSwiftSecurity site to download or read firmware changelogs. It appears mine is running: V4.31.4.8_180814

    That is the latest. We should have another one being released very soon that addresses a few minor issues.

    Can you help with the RTSP stream?

    Nmap scan report for 172.25.5.10
    Host is up (0.0012s latency).

    PORT STATE SERVICE VERSION
    22/tcp closed ssh
    80/tcp open http
    554/tcp open rtsp?


    I've logged into the camera web interface, and under NETWORK -> RTSP I have it enabled, port 554, and anonymous login turned on. (This is a separate VLAN that has no access to the internet.)

    The "Instruction" says:

    rtsp://IP:port/ch01/A
    A:0(MainStream), 1(SubStream), 2(MobileStream)

    I've tried the following formats in VLC with no go:
    VLC is unable to open the MRL 'rtsp://172.25.5.10:554/ch01/A'. Check the log for details.

    Substitute "0" for "A" if Mainstream is wanted, as in:
    Code:
    rtsp://172.25.5.10:554/ch01/0
    FWIW, if you paste your URL in using CODE (see + in menu) you won't get the smiley faces, etc.

    Thanks Tony. Also, if you have trouble getting your rtsp stream displaying in something, you may have to switch it over to h.264. Ive noticed some applications wont accept the h.265
