Yes RCA, EZVIZ and HIK Connect apps all working with the La View firmware. To use the LaView app I had to delete the camera from the other apps and register it with LaView but decided to go back to RCA on the phone and HIK Connect on the IPad because I have a HIK NVRFor those of you who who put the LaView firmware on the RCA doorbell (to gain ONVIF capability): does the RCA mobile app still work?
What did you like about the RCA app to make u change back from the LaView app.Yes RCA, EZVIZ and HIK Connect apps all working with the La View firmware.

Was kind of wondering the same, as I believe the LaView firmware also has Onvif, and the Substream (correct me if im wrong) ??What's the advantage of Nelly's over the newer LaView? Seems like theirs may be a little custom based on the required reset and separate cloud account.
I've never seen my RCA check that usdownload.ezvizlife url; I suspect it doesn't ever go there unless it is downloading a new version.. I did some packet captures and I still can't find the URL for where it upgrades and I tried both the iphone IP and the camera IP. Neither showed me a check at that URL.
So with all the onvif.org references you would think it would be listed as a registered device on onvif.org but I can't find LaView's or Nelly's...Okay figured out the LaView situation. Have to remove camera from old account first. Nothing special about their apps, so moved back.
As for Nelly's Firmware the latest is 5.2.4 Build 190625. Got it right from Nelly's.
Flashing from LaView firmware to Nelly's caused me to need to reset the camera. This was a bit of a bear. Had to remove the camera from the app because it expected the Wifi being presented from the camera to be HSDB2_deviceserial when using RCA App. For EZVIZ it expected EZVIZ_deviceserial. For Guarded Vision it wanted HAP_device serial. Not until I removed the camera from the App/account was I able to add it back with the Guarding Vision app using what the camera was actually presenting which is "softap_deviceserial" For anyone stuck here the password is "softap_devicepw" This really hung me up for awhile. Even Nelly's was a bit stumped. I did some packet captures and I still can't find the URL for where it upgrades and I tried both the iphone IP and the camera IP. Neither showed me a check at that URL. However I did find a lot of OnVif details in the packet capture in the Nelly's firmware. Here is some of the decoded text from the UDP packet for the onvif stuff.

So you may try loading EZVIZ first, turn on Logo, then load LaView's and hopefully it will turn it off:Just put on the LaView Firmware on my RCA doorbell. Onvif and Sub stream work great... but I still have the RCA logo. Not a huge deal as it doesnt cover up anything i need.
Switched to LaView firmware and ONVIF is up and running with Synology SS (I was previously using RTSP).
My RCA logo is still gone, maybe because I turned it on with the EZVIZ firmware first?
Do any of these various firmwares provide the ability to control video settings like brightness? The overhang over my front door provides enough shade so that everyone that approaches is backlit by the daylight behind them resulting in most of the recordings being of silhouettes rather than detailed faces.
