This is the same thing as the Amcrest AD410 which is a really great doorbell. I've used the Lorex version and I can confidently say that this is the best doorbell camera I've seen (I haven't used the Amcrest version myself, but I doubt there's any noticeable difference). The video a very sharp and just looks great. The audio is crisp as well. It can be added to Blue Iris and most NVR's. It has an SD card slot on the back and the Lorex version comes with a 32GB SD card. They also come with vertical and horizontal wedge mounts. The Lorex Home app is decent. I haven't used the Amcrest app so I don't know if it's great, but from what I've read, there are some limitations. Feature wise, the main difference between the Amcrest and Lorex version is that the Lorex has an LED light on the bottom. This can be nice to light up the porch a little bit when the porch lights aren't on. The motion detection is very accurate as well. There are a few threads on here that reference the AD410. Like I said, they're the same thing, just rebranded.
I have had both, and in agreement with @Jayordon, the Amcrest AD410 and this Lorex one the same with different slightly firmware and external trim. I returned my Lorex doorbell and got an Amcrest AD410 because I already had other Amcrest cameras and wanted to use it with the iOS and Android Amcrest apps. If I already had Lorex equipment, would have kept the Lorex version. If I had neither Lorex nor Amcrest already, I would favor the Amcrest just a little because there are more knowledge and projects using the Amcrest API.
Are you sure it can be added to blue iris, have you done that yourself and can confirm? I don't find any info that this will work with anything other than Lorex NVRs.
I have not done it myself as I don't use Blue Iris, but it is Onvif compliant and has an RTSP stream. If you search through other threads on this doorbell, other users that do use Blue Iris have reported that they can successfully add it.
Here is a video proving that the doorbell works in Blue Iris.Here's all i found, which is not encouraging. Looking for a video doorbell that complies with this list:
Please edit your "review" and add links to back up what you claim, or remove your claims as it's misleading and not based on facts.
There is no official ONVIF support on this doorbell platform on any of these variants, Lorex 2K, Amcrest AD410, IMOU DB61i, Dahua DH-DB6I, which are all the same same camera.I wired the camera using a 12VDC transformer (without a chime) and it seems to work fine. RTSP also works, but I can't make onvif work for some reason.
Yes those have all the same hardware, but I think I am discovering that there are differences. People have been able to use ONVIF with AD410 for example, and integrate as an onvif camera to Blue Iris. Others seem to be able to use python-amcrest and other integrations that access Amcrest AD410 over the HTTP interface, via their HTTP SDK, in order to pull events like the doorbell presses, person detection etc.
Yeah that's the screenshot I keep seeing, and it's clear from that that port 80 is open and accessible in AD110 (and I've seen the same for AD410). But it is closed in the Lorex 2K, at least in the firmware that came with the camera (that is also the latest).
