Hi Riaz,I'm running openHAB with many different devices and thought it would be really cool to integrate the camera too.
Earlier there was a post about being able to separate the colored plastic disc on the doorbell button from the cover assembly, and then swapping the disk for a lighter colored one. I did that with my EZViz, swapping to a white doorbell button on a black case. So far no thumb prints on the PIR sensor, so that seems to have worked. The field of "human factors" is really interesting...Ha
The ideal use case for me would be to turn on and off the LEDs when motion was detected by the PIR, making it more obvious that the PIR was not actually the ring button. Most of my visitors have figured it out by now, though...

Not sure this is a good idea
When you change FW, the SSID changes from EZVIZ_[sticker_code] to softap_[sticker_code]. You can't and shouldn't change the SSID of the doorbell back to the EZVIZ SSID. Just connect your mobile device to the softap_[sticker_code] SSID in order to complete the configuration. Once you tell the doorbell about your local network SSID, the doorbell SSID disappears and you are done with that part of the configuration.I'm trying to change my firmware from EZVIZ to HikVision. After uploading and rebooting the device don't know how to change my SSID back to the standard EZVIZ.
I tried it with BatchConfigTool but I don't see any option.
How did you do it?
Nope. Read step 7's text. The idea was to change the SSID back to EZVIZ_ ssid so you can use the app to configure everything from scratch, like it was a DB1 with ezviz fw.In Step 7 you are not entering the old SSID for the doorbell, you are entering the SSID of the local wifi network you want the doorbell to use.
I stand corrected. Thanks.Nope. Read step 7's text. The idea was to change the SSID back to EZVIZ_ ssid so you can use the app to configure everything from scratch, like it was a DB1 with ezviz fw.
Upgrade to hikvision fw, reset to factory, change ssid to EZVIZ_, and you have an ezviz DB1 with ONVIF that ezviz mobile app recognizes perfectly when doing the first configuration through the wizard.

Thanks - yeah I guess I mean I still want to record motion as there's no human detection differentiator; I just don't want to be notified about it each time.
There are seperate settings for answering doorbel and alarm notification in the app.Not sure if this has been asked before but with the EZVIZ app, is there a way to only receive notifications for doorbell rings? My problem is the 5 ft doesn't capture some UPS/ Fedex package drop offs. If I change to 9 ft, it'll capture trucks driving by at 30 feet away. So with the 9 ft option, I'll receive 50 PIR notifications a day. I'm fine with it recording a bunch as I have a 128 GB card in there but just don't need to be notified each time. I'd still like to be notified with door bell pushes & a chance to respond however.
