    Maybe you need a WiFi Extender such as this (not sure which will / won't work with your router but as you can see from a google search, they run from cheap to v. expensive at the pro end). This one is nice and cheap!:

    Thanks scn101 for your reply,

    If I use a Hikvision NVR do you think I can do 24/7 record, take snap shots of motion send to FTP server and/or email all simultaneously? Will the Hikvision NVR web browser or software allow doorbell adjustment of all settings, motion, schedule, etc?

    I’m setting up surveillance using four 1080p cameras, 2 need to record 24/7 and have motion/snap shot feature all to be controlled from NVR. If I have to purchase Hikvision cameras so be it!

    Yes, on my HV NVR I can setup for 24/7, motion, etc., on a per camera basis. You can control most of the camera's important features through the NVR, like motion sensitivity, area of interest, schedule, etc. The NVR manual is available here: http://oversea-download.hikvision.com/UploadFile/user manual & datasheet/UD.6L0202B1935A01_Baseline_Quick Start Guide of Network Video Recorder_76 77 86-E Series_V3.3.0_20150324.pdf

    Sounds good. I just pulled the trigger on an inexpensive Hikvision mini NVR DS-7104NI-SN off Ebay for $50. Doesn't look like a US version but it is multi lingual. Possibly discontinued? I'll give an update after I try it out. Thanks again.

    That's a pretty old model that I'm not familiar with. Hopefully you won't get the language mismatch error when adding HV cameras. Be careful updating its firmware (or just don't) as you may end up with a Chinese only speaking NVR.

    It's a Latin American firmware but is multi language. I can always return it at my cost which is fine with me. If it works with the shipped firmware I'll leave it alone. Thanks for the advice and hope to post again this Saturday.

    I have the Hikvision mini NVR DS-7104NI-SN up and running with my Uniden(Hikvision) U-Bell video doorbell. I got the doorbell configured with the Hikvision protocol not ONVIF. Appears to have full control of camera from NVR in addition to basic recording! The NVR came with FW 3.0.13 build 150429. Is it worth the risk to update to latest FW? What are the benefits?

    Thanks scn101, it appears I might already have the latest FW.

    So I have Firmware Version V1.4.62 build 180515 on my unit and it still has the 'subscriber is busy' message. Is there a different version of the firmware that does not do this?

    Registered in order to say thank you for helpful information in this thread. I had upgraded the firmware to the latest as part of my pre-install bench testing, and I was frustrated in that the motion detection didn't seem to be working - only the doorbell ring notification was working. Learning that I should factory reset the doorbell after the firmware upgrade and configure it without the doorbell being part of my NVR setup was the secret I needed. Mentioning that a factory reset is required after a firmware upgrade should really be mentioned in the Nelly's detailed Quick Start guide...

    I ordered the NSC-DB1 with a left/right wedge, which are unfortunately white. They stand out against three of the four covers that come with the doorbell, but I did find that Rust-Oleum Dark Bronze Metallic Finish applied to the wedge is almost a perfect match for the bronze cover.

    Speaking of painting, you should see some of the best jobs done to help blend in cams I have ever seen, here.
