    For your reference, there's another thread on ipcamtalk with lots of info on the DB1, assuming you can bear with reading all 49 pages of it. You can find the thread at
    Sweet! LTS is releasing an ONVIF compatible doorbell with SD card slot and 940nm IR

    Receiving notifications while away from home is usually a selling point for the video doorbells... For your awareness, part of the setup with an app sets up an account with HikVision, and a server there brokers access to your doorbell video and notifications. No matter what app you're using, all will access that server account for user authentication. You can log into your HikVision account at www.hik-connect.com, with the email and password that you used when you set up your app. That will show you whether the doorbell gods have determined whether your doorbell is online or offline. If the doorbell is offline, no one can remotely access it. FWIW, some have noted that they still get notifications at home when the doorbell is in offline state (edit: which, unfortunately, seems to happen a bit too often). I don't think you can force the offline state, but maybe you could try deleting it from your HikVision account after you've set it up and see what that does for you.

    At least now you have another piece of the puzzle to work with.

    EDIT: I don't think deleting the doorbell in the HikVision account will work. IIRC that will in turn inform your app that you no longer have a doorbell...
