I think my Laview may have finally bit the wiener. Usually I can just cut the power for a few days and re-add to the app and I'm good for a few months. Tried it the other night and the app won't find it. I only had about 10 minutes to put towards it, so I need to try it again, for real.
Which I'm happy to be rid of this thing, but I'm not sure if I have many better options
You have had your LaView about as long as mine. I am one of the lucky ones, have only had to cut power a few times in these last 3 years. Never had to add it back to the App. The Power cutting was to get may SDCard back recording again. But enough about me.
From what I have read the DB1C is a little better than what we have, that is they improved the WiFi signal a little but it sounds like it still is not up to par. The AI instead of PIR has not proven better, actually worse, but if you have BI or a NVR to detect motion you are good.
Had a friend just order the Eufy 3-in-1
he got it on sale, list for $399, he paid $299. Don't know much about it, the Chime it comes with allows for SDCard recording, don't know if it supports RTSP. I will say it is a nice looking solution to have a Smart Lock and Smart Doorbell combo. He is replacing his Nest.
One thing about this though, if your door is facing the street/front, this will work good, but if you door is on the side, say left side, the door frame will get in the way of the camera. For my friend, his door is on the right side so he will see someone walking up but not sure how much his door frame will cut off the person standing in front of his door.
