Here's what i've discovered changing from the RCA version of the DB1 to DB1C (using BI):Hello all, I was considering getting either the DB1 or one of its clones. What exactly is the advantage of the DB1C? I know about the AI person detect and that doesn't even matter to me. I will be using with Blue Iris. As for motion detection I'd rather have it detect too much than not enough. Thanks!
- DB1C has wider field of view, the main reason why I switched, see top of this thread for examples
- DB1C doesn't have an IR dome for people to mistakenly press instead of the door bell button, never happened to mine, but many others have reported broken IR dome cover due to this problem
- DB1C sits more flush to the surface, which in my case, causes an IR reflection from my screen door frame, I plan on adding a shim to space it out farther
The DB1C AI human detection is far from perfect, but seems to be on par with Sentry AI for false alerts once you get it dialed in (minimum detection zone and sensitivity).
