I have bought a Yoosee PoE doorbell and setup was quite simple. For some odd reason, notification pushing sometimes is delayed on Android but not on iOS.

Did the DB Camera require a PoE injector or was it able to accept ethernet cable direct?

I have CAT6 installed and don't want to bust open our brand new wall. I would love to find a DB cam at this price point that accepted PoE direct (without the requirement for an additional power run). I never thought this would be so frustrating.

How long you had it? Do you use it with Blue Iris? I don't even get notifications at all with my hikvision wifi DB cam.



ooooOOOOoooOOhhhh BABY!!!


check out that Ethernet port!!!

I’ve had it installed for maybe about 6 months or so. The doorbell itself would work without a PoE injector. All you need is your typical electric wiring. Otherwise, a PoE injector (included in the box) is needed. I only had to run one cable from the doorbell to the PoE injector and a cable between it and my unmanaged network switch. Nothing too difficult and it worked like a charm. An IP was assigned to it automatically and it started working without any issues (except for those odd app-related ones). I’ve yet to try it with Blue Iris.

Keep in mind this doorbell will use all 4 pairs of your CAT6 connection (2 for data, 2 for PoE) so if you only have a single CAT6 with no additional wiring you won't have any wires left to connect your existing mechanical doorbell.



It's Onvif and offers an RTSP stream and it has been found to work with BlueIris and at least one other Onvif compatible program so chances are it will work with your NVR if that is Onvif too but the only way to be absolutely sure about compatibility is to try it out with your specific NVR.

after some reading looks like it does not ring a mechanical chime but requires a usb ringer :-(

Yes, indeed. You can buy multiple ones if you have a big house but it can be quite surprisingly loud.
Wifi or RF? i'm curious if i can put in my separate garage next door to know when someone is home.

Does this HikVision DS-KB8112-IM hit the mark? Not certain this meets the chime requirement... I'm a total noob at this. I've been looking at installing a new system and have stalled right from the beginning. I too want a doorbell cam on the front and back doors. There seem to be plenty of great products and advice on security cameras but the doorbell cams just seem to be so limited when the focus is on "PoE Doorbell Cams". At least from a cost perspective. I've prewired an addition to the backside of our home and have the Cat6 just hanging out next to our door just waiting to be connected!

This model (DS-KB8112-IM) hits the PoE and price requirement at US $160 for my needs (I think). I need to learn a bit more about resolution but think this would work fine for the close-up view at our door. Once I have this issue figured out I'll tackle the "easier" job of purchasing dome cameras that gets me broader coverage with higher resolution.

Hi Kochanowski

Just looking for a confirmation that the Relay Output in Chime mode, reacts to call button.

Wish I had something to share but I have not gotten any further on my search for a PoE doorbell cam. I don't have a requirement for the chime so I'm not even looking at that feature.

If you already haven't, you may want to create a new thread here under "Doorbells" to broaden the target audience. Sorry I can't answer this one for you. These doorbell cams seem to be very frustrating when it comes to fitting specific requirements!

Good luck.

I have about 10 tabs open right now with all of the links here, thanks! I have an RCA doorbell cam on the wall now and it's horrible.

I wanted to comment here on the folks who are hung up on POE - If you think about it, the last thing you want to do is hang an ethernet cable outside of your house. I mean, otherwise, you might as well just have an open wi-fi network. Sure, nobody is going to pull your doorbell off and plug into your ethernet...But if they DO - then they're going to have unrestricted access to your lan (without some VLAN/port security/something complex).

Anyway, just wanted to throw out there that I'm specifically sticking to Wi-Fi for security reasons. Thanks again for all of the helpful product links, everyone.

Lol, you think that someone with the skillset to collect data from your lan, will go rip of your doorbell and sit out there with a pc stealing your data? That will never happen. If you are paranoid, you can make the same exact argument for wired cameras. The solution for the overly paranoid is segregate the network. Also see Hacking your network from an IP camera
You can also constantly ping the doorbell so you are alerted when it goes offline. This is never needed as the threat of such an attack on your home is zero. You should focus your energy on properly securing the device itself from the internet.

Yes, all that, for sure. Unlikely vector, and ways to make it secure, anyway. I just meant that it's generally not a best-practice to string ethernet outside your house unless you do consider the security aspects. I have POE Cameras on a managed switch, but I know what I'm doing.

I also agree that all IoT stuff should be blocked from accessing the internet. Anyone reading here can hopefully find that option in their router. That's like the first thing for anyone to do when putting this type of stuff on their LAN.

For me, my ex would have come, jacked in, and just deleted everything one night. She's a mean one.

It IS best practice to string ethernet outside your house. This is how to PROPERLY install IP cameras. It is NOT best practice to use crappy wifi thinking its better. That is foolish. Please, your ex, would have no capability to access your network and delete anything. Do you leave your network storage devices and pc's open with no passwords?
There is nothing to consider, no one, that is NO one will ever come to your home, remove a camera and try to steal your data. There are much easier methods of stealing data that dont pose these types of risks.
Have you considered that your wifi doorbell is probably easily hackable if someone with the skill has direct access to it, they can come to your home, remove the doorbell, hack it, get your wifi password and replace the doorbell. Obviously you will not see any of this occur and now they have direct access to your network from their van parked in front of your home. Does that sound insane? It should because it is. That is exactly what you sound like.

I got this last week, only took a week to arrive also (I am in Australia)
Took me 30min to see the active button bottom left... while setting up and testing
It did change its IP after 1 night on BI, so allocated an IP in my router
2mp - but very wide angle, so not a great picture
Set-up with BI took about 5min, had to try a few different settings - but was setting up the app at the same time (DOH)
Chime works well, but needs to be near (5-7m?) from the doorbell

Over all, does a good job, just have to wait and see if someone presses my button while i'm out :D
4 days and no issues, no visitors however (bonus!)

This Yoosee Doorbell isn't very good quality, 2 main issues
1: Had a few people at my door and the call never came through, app was running in the back ground (IOS)
2: Quality of the lens - isn't focused on left side (not centred?) - degrades from right to left (right side and middle clear as day)
After much communication, pictures and video - the seller claims all Doorbells they have are the same and can not be fixed, nor will they replace
If this thing didn't work with BI i would kick up a big stink - I get BI alerts and emails from the device - just not the video push "ring"

I guess you get what you pay for ...

The lens of the YooSee doorbell is simply optically out of focus which can be easily fixed as has been discussed here before. You will need to open up the device, loosen the screw that fixates the focussing and then focus it properly. The difference will be night and day in terms of quality. Look for the relevant post that is here somewhere which includes pictures on how to do the focussing.

I've been doing it wrong all along. I had no idea I was supposed to use wifi for all my exterior cameras so that James Bond didn't come rip a camera off the wall, and hack into my network and steal all my super secret blu ray videos and family pictures. Hell if I were James Bond I would think it would just be easier to bust the window out and come physically take anything I wanted :lmao:.

P.S. if you're that damn paranoid and you claim to know what you're doing any entry level network engineer would tell you to enable basic port-security. Enable switchport port-security, switchport port-security mac address xxxx, and do NOT enable "errdisable recovery cause psecurity-violation" (in case you're worried about them tearing the device off, and then spoofing its MAC)
