I know that most of the time a 12 volt transformer will put out a higher voltage with no load
No, not correct, for a regulated power supply.
Note: I did meter the untouched transformer and I received 16 volts, no load. After the camera blew up when I plugged in the power supply,
I do think you need to blame the power supply and not the cameras, if that's what you've powered them with. It's a pretty big overload.

Hi, t_i_t_o
1. Could you tell me a useful how-to about repacking cramfs and flashing back image to camera?
2. Which particular files you have changed? Did you notice any changes in camera menus or somewhere else? I'm thinking about modding stuff in CustomConfig too, but i have other hardware (HVR/NVR with similar Sofia-based firmware) and my problem is that i get snapshot menu and able to receive snapshots only in pure analog mode (4xD1). So it would be great if you provide some more details about your changes. Concerning your question about format of the config files i believe they are just plain text multidimensional arrays things and could be easily edit with advanced text editors like Notepad++.
1. Start NFS server on your PC (FreeNFS for Windows works too)
2. Log in to your cam using telnet and mount one folder to the NFS like this: mount -t nfs -o nolock 192.168.1.132:/ /tmp/mnt/
3. "dd" all /dev/mtd parts to the NFS folder. Later all these images can be used to unbrick the cam.
4. Use sudo unsquashfs -d 2 2.bin to unpack an image named 2.bin
5. Modify desirred files.
6. Use sudo mksquashfs 2/ 2.sqf -all-root -b 262144 -no-xattrs -comp xz to pack it back.
7. Start some TFTP server and copy the file to its root dir.
8. Connect to your cam using the UART interface, reboot it and hit CTRL+C quickly to enter U-boot command line.
9. Setup the IP settings - ipaddr and serverip.
10. Use the following to flash back the modified image:
sf probe 0
sf erase 0x3B0000 0x280000
tftp 0x82000000 2.sqf
sf write 0x82000000 0x3B0000 0x240000
11. Reboot cam and test your changes.

Config files are not text, but binary. Using the Sofia command line you can translate it to text based and see settings, but could not find a way to get them back to binary. I am not sure if you erase the binary version, will sofia read the text based.

1. Start NFS server
Thank you very much for your comprehensive guide.
But bad things happen - i've recently upgraded firmware (dated Nov-2015) and there is no working telnet anymore, only 9527 interface works. So now i'm looking for a way to flash only part of firmware via web-interface or CMS. I'm pretty sure i saw how to do that somewhere on Internet, but i can't find it now.

Config files are not text, but binary.
They are just zip-compressed archives (or tar, can't remember correctly). I opened them using 7zip archive manager on Windows.
To edit JSON stuff, online tools like that: http://json.parser.online.fr/ look very handy.
Then you need to pack files back to zip format.

Hi everyone, I'v read all 58 pages but cant find similar problem
First of all i have ip camera with IR and wifi
Here's firmware, that i have inside

What i need:
BEST: I need that camera could upload image to FTP every XX seconds
I COULD LEAVE WITH THAT: Camera upload image to FTP when motion detected.

I've read tutorial, setup everything same - but camera upload only 2 images after restart and that's it (with motion detection)
Here's my settings, i've tested many combinations but still it doesnt work
cam2.jpg

Looks like everything setup right, also it connects to ftp, created folders - uploads 2 images after camera reboot and after that - nothing, in CMS camera looks OK, i can see picature, login to setting, read log, everything working, but it stops uploading pics to ftp =\
Please help, Thanks!

I published a web page in the past with info about a mic that I found worked fairly good for IPC board cameras that require line-level audio, but the source sold out very quickly and several have written asking if I knew of any other mic's that may work. I needed a few more myself but made the mistake of publishing the web page before ordering more so I've had to start all over and look for other mic's to try. Anyway, I finally found time to do that and order some more inexpensive mic's from China to try which I've been busy modifying to make work with my board cameras that require line-level audio and have just finished publishing all the details at http://ve6sbs.sbszoo.com/projects/ipcam_mics/mics.htm for those still wanting/needing mic's for their cameras.

And a heads up for those that like to build their cameras like I do, I will be publishing a few more web pages hopefully before the end of January with info about the camera boards I've been using, my home brew camera enclosures and a few other things that one will be able find by visiting http://ve6sbs.sbszoo.com/.

Hello. Did you check other cheap microphones? For example this one:
http://tinyurl.com/gowdqpt

is it possible to recover microphone (and amplifier) form antiquated device like tape recorder or telephone?
regards

From the photo that one has has a transistor or FET amp so wouldn't work. You need one that has an IC op-amp for enough gain and, even then, most are made to work with consumer equipment for which line-level is only 0.316Vrms and IPC camera boards require an audio level of 2V so they need to be modified for more gain. I have a box full of the type shown in your link that were removed from old equipment, but have never found one with an op-amp on a small PCB like that in old equipment.

Deep - Part 1 of 2:

OK. Please consider yourself warned. This is going to get "Very Deep" indeed.

I have done extensive research on what these IP Cameras are about as well as "Who" the "Real Source" is of them. Since they seem to be suddenly being sold by everyone and their second and third cousins using their own brand and model names/numbers.

Here is that company:

Hangzhou Xiongmai Technology Co., Ltd

Currently there are no http/https .CGI/URL commands that can pull Snapshots from this IP Camera. That's one thing the firmware support lacks.

This IP Cameras real names are: ("IPG-50H10PE-S, IPG-50H10PE-SL, IPG-53H10PE-S, IPG-53H13PE-S") AKA firmware: IPC_HI3518E_50H10L_S38.x.x

The Hardware Id for this "6510" version ("See Below for more details") is: HWID: 8043420004048425.

Note: There a many different boards/models produced by this manufacturer.

In a nutshell. It would seem that "ALL" these IP Cameras are ("Really") from this company and sold by others as theirs using their obscure IP Camera names and models. This is why it will most likely continue to be important to not assume, which version of this IPC IP Camera you may have purchased and install the WRONG firmware for it.

Before I end this post here. I will attach a link to a .zip file. Which, I will host. That contains the most current ("As of 01/29/2015") firmware, CMS ("Camera Management System"), Device Manager, ActiveX as well as links to detailed information about this product line. Which becomes somewhat important to have all being the most current. For the best IP Camera operations. Including the Telnet password for this IP Cameras current firmware release. Of course you are more then welcome to use the links provided here, to get these same files, as well. Yourself.

I'm also attaching a link to a separate .zip file. Which I will host. More geared toward those that wish to customize the IP Cameras web interfaces in the IP Cameras firmware and CMS interfaces with their name and logos and for developers interested in creating software for these IP Cameras. That can be download as well.

Most of the information is in Chinese, provided by this company ("Which I personally can't read or write"). So, I have included links in this Forum post that are using auto-translation to English. So that everyone can better follow how easy it is to keep current with the firmware, Device Manager, CMS and other interesting things about this "IPC" product line of IP Cameras. What's nice about how this company goes about this process vs. others. Is that they maintain a link that always points the "Most Current" of whatever it is your looking for. So you can get to the new files rather quickly.

Personally, I use a Microsoft browser plugin ("Which works with any browser") that allows you to simply click the word "Translate" on your browsers toolbar. While viewing any web page and automatically translate that web page in any language, to your default primary language. Trust me, it's times like this that you will value a browser plugin like this. Here is a link to very quickly, install that plugin, in the browsers of your choice:

Language Labs - Translator Bookmarklet

You can go to this companies main WiKi page and Forum for their "IPC" product line ("Which includes these IP Cameras"). Which are in Chinese and test your newly installed browser translator plugin. Which can be easily deleted at anytime as well:

Company Wiki

Company Forum

What's also interesting, is that all the file downloads are maintained for everything. Firmware, Device Manager, CMS. On a website which uses HTTPS access. Many online language translators don't do well with HTTPS web pages. So when you go to that site, to download a file directly, that I provide a link to here. You can't easily tell ("Since everything is in Chinese") what you need to do, to download that file. So you need to check that files checkbox and then click the button on that page, that has a downward arrow. To start your download.

Currently. All the files inside the Firmware .bin files. Can be extracted using .rar extractors like 7-Zip, for example in Windows. Which is free to download and use. Besides only using Telnet to get an idea of what files are actually inside the firmware. Since the current .bin firmware files are not encrypting the web files in the firmware. They also have a tool that can be used to re-package and customize both the firmware and CMS ("Web Files") so that you could essentially, create your own IP Camera brand using their products. Using your name and logos. They also have a .NET SDK and working pre-compiled examples. In that SDK, for developers as well.

It might be worth it for those that wish to contact this company to see if you can get bulk or reseller prices. Since it would appear that this company is the primary source of these IP Cameras. They have an entire Forum dedicated to this "IPC" IP Camera line located here:

http://www.microsofttranslator.com/BV.aspx?ref=IE8Activity&a=http://bbs.xm030.com/forum-56-1.html

Their formal website contact page in English: http://www.xiongmaitech.com/en/contact.php

I have tested these versions shown here and used them for my IPC IP Cameras. Firmware, CMS, Device Manager, ActiveX and Telnet access. So this is all not conjecture or speculation on my part. On where I am going with all of this. These versions, all work well together.

Here are the English specification sheets. Specifically for these (4) different IP Camera Modules. That all use the same firmware version. The ones most purchased and talked about in this Forum thread, currently:

http://wiki.xm030.com:81/产品参数/English/IPG模组/Parameters for 3518E IP Camera Module.pdf

It becomes equally important to note what firmware version is in your IP Camera as well and NOT by the firmware .bin filename but what the Device Manager, IP Camera web interface or CMS says the version is when you display the device configuration information when using them. Before you start playing around with these IP Cameras. So that if needed, you can reload the proper firmware for the proper IP Camera.

You can install firmware from the IP Cameras web browser Interface as well as the Device Manager and CMS. If you make bad IP Configuration changes that are causing issues to access the IP Cameras via the web browser interface. You can reset the IP Cameras configuration values also using the Device Manager as well as CMS. Which may help regain access to the IP Cameras web browser interface.

Case in point. There is nothing in the firmware versions .bin files actual name. That contains "6510":



Because of this. One needs to use the IP Cameras browser interface, Device Manager or CMS Interface to get this value. Before, not after something goes terribly wrong. At least once, to have a noted reference to what version of this IP Camera. You really have. That you can always refer to in the future, as needed.



This is how the Firmware version suffix numbers can be broken down:

http://www.microsofttranslator.com/BV.aspx?ref=IE8Activity&a=http://wiki.xm030.com/index.php/%E7%B3%BB%E7%BB%9F%E7%89%88%E6%9C%AC%E5%90%8E%E7%BC%80%E8%AF%B4%E6%98%8E

There is an area where the latest firmware releases are maintained by the ("Middle") 8 digits of the System firmware version number of the firmware currently installed in the IP camera. Example: 00006510. Cut off the 4 leading Zeros and look for the link to "6510". Shown in the table below after the first link below direct link to the firmware for the "6510" IPC IP Camera. Please see the picture above to see what I mean, as a version reference to the table linked below.

Note: When you click on a link to get the latest firmware from the 6510 firmware link below or from the firmware table link below. Once you are at the firmware download page. In the upper right hand corner there is a dropdown list. Choose English. Then check the checkbox next to the firmware download file. Then click the download button to start the firmware download.

The link below, always has the most current firmware for the "6510" IPC IP Camera model:

This IP Camera can only be configured using an IE ("Internet Explorer") browser or by using the CMS utility.

You can use any non IE based browser on Windows systems such Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari to simply view the mini IP Cameras Main or Sub video streams without having access to the mini IP Cameras configuration settings.

If you intend to use a Chrome browser, then you will need to enable NPAPI plugins first.

https://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

Once you have installed Apples Quicktime media player. You need to use this URL for non IE based browsers that will only be able to access this IP Cameras video streams:

http://192.168.1.10:/Login.htm

You can access the video streams for this IP Camera via RTSP using:

Display Resolution: 1280x720 HD:
Code:
rtsp://192.168.1.10/user=User&password=Password&channel=1&stream=0.sdp?real_stream--rtp-caching=100
Display Resolution: 352x240 MJPEG:
Code:
rtsp://192.168.1.10/user=User&password=Password&channel=1&stream=1.sdp?real_stream--rtp-caching=100
Note: You can also use a ("cryptographic hash") of the users password vs. the actual password when you want family or friends or the public to be able to view the camera using RTSP, but you don't want to use a real user password for the camera that could be abused to change the cameras configuration. More details here on how to do that:

.ZIP file for IP Camera reset utility

These IP Cameras have no reset button. So, this utility is the only way to reset this IP Camera to factory defaults when something goes wrong minus opening up the IP Camera and shorting two contacts on the PCB. Like not being able to logon after changing the password or other things. Simple to use. But must be used locally. Simply enter local IP Address of the IP Camera and the IP Camera will reset. The reset can take 20+ seconds to complete after it is started.



After the utility comes back saying the Reset was OK. The Default User will be User: admin Password: nothing/empty/blank. All IP Camera settings will also be set to factory defaults. Including the IP Cameras IP Address being reset to 192.168.1.10

This .zip file was left as a stand-alone .zip file. Because it's small and maybe the only thing some IP Camera owners may want to download.

http://www.saveontelephonebills.com/camera/confidential/ResetTop-201.zip

.ZIP file for IP Camera owners with all the current files shown above as of 01/29/2015

This .zip file is 35+ MB and contains the most recent ("As of 01/29/2015") firmware for the "6510" version of this IPC IP Camera. The most recent CMS version for the IPC product line. Including these IP Cameras. The most recent ActiveX. The most recent Device Manager and a Readme.txt file that contains the Telnet password for this firmware version. Which can change from firmware version to firmware version:. Files include:

1. Firmware:General_HZXM_IPC_HI3518E_50H10L_S38_V4.02.R12.20150116_ALL.bin

2. Device Manager: General_DeviceManage_V2.5.1.0.R.20141023.exe

3. CMS: General_CMS_V3.1.0.2.T.20141104.exe

4. Activex: 7.0.1.0

.ZIP file for developers

For developers ("Like Myself"). This zip file is 49+ MB. It contains some of the tools you can use for these cameras. Files Include ("Some maybe in Chinese but links are included to the company Forum that you can use a translator with"):

1. Unpacked version of the current firmware for the web portion.

2. Current version of the firmware for the "6510".

3. A special make utility required to be used to unpack and pack custom changes for CMS and firmware.

4. .NET SDK with some pre-compiled examples that work with this IP Camera.

http://www.saveontelephonebills.com/camera/confidential/Top-201-For-Developers.zip

As an aside. For developers. I notice with this latest firmware release that there now is a new option under the IP Cameras network settings that is "Serial Pass-Through". This new option can only be seen when using the IP Cameras web browser interface and not from the Device Manager or CMS. I can only assume that because this IP Camera is so small. Trying to rip it open would be no easy task to connect a serial TTY device for recovery. It looks like there are methods to use TCP/UDP over Ethernet, to emulate a serial connection that one can use for recovery purposes. I have tried everything to make this connection work. But currently have not been able to. So, if anyone has any ideas or wants to try. Please suggest or go ahead. I have used a virtual serial port 3rd party program. But never did or could create a working connection.

This company has new add-on features for their "IPC" ("Which in Chinese stands for 'IP Camera'") product line. There are now PoE boards and also IP Camera modules that support and include SD cards, wireless as well. All in the same size dimensions.

Hi everyone, I'v read all 58 pages but cant find similar problem

View attachment 7276

What i need:
BEST: I need that camera could upload image to FTP every XX seconds
I COULD LEAVE WITH THAT: Camera upload image to FTP when motion detected.

I've read tutorial, setup everything same - but camera upload only 2 images after restart and that's it (with motion detection)
Here's my settings, i've tested many combinations but still it doesnt work

Looks like everything setup right, also it connects to ftp, created folders - uploads 2 images after camera reboot and after that - nothing, in CMS camera looks OK, i can see picature, login to setting, read log, everything working, but it stops uploading pics to ftp =\
Please help, Thanks!

My guess would be can you downgrade to the firmware you had? The firmware you used was probably for a model that does NOT have wifi hardware, so it was not included in the firmware.
If you can't downgrade, look for another firmware that may have WIFI included.

I have to place my Hikvision cameras very close to the Windows glass. When I do that, I don't have much reflection issue from the window with IR. And can see over 20 feet away at night. But if I move the camera back a little, then there are issues from the ir reflection.
Many Hikvision cameras allow you to disable the IR lights for people who want to place them in windows. I use that feature on the Hiks all the time. Anyone know if this TOP-201 with IR lights has an IR Light disable feature on the web interface?

Okay thanks for the info , but I still have not solved the problem.I've already been in contact with several Chinese manufacturers / suppliers but they will send no recent firmware.pity that they did not cooperate.Wifi is still not in the NetService tab.Sincerely, Douwewritten with Google translate

Have anyone solved this gmail ssl error? My camera wont send alarm-emails or nothing, only errors comes up. Everything is set up correctly, i'm sure about that.
I've contacted to the manufacturer and they said that this is a big problem for them now. Said also, that only chinese mail adresses will work, qq, sina, etc.?
I'm getting angry because of this.

edit: My camera is MiSecu 1MP wifi, but the software is the same:
V4.02.R.12.00006510.10010.1403 (1403 because of Wifi-functioning, wont work in newer version.)

edit2: May this or may not be related to ssl sha-1 changing to sha-2 certificate..if the cam is using sha1 and gmail needs sha2...

"SSL: Closing on protocol error 42
sslRead error in sslDoHandhake"

"SMTPD: Mail Connect...
Error 2 connecting to server...
SMTPD: connect mail server failed
SMTPD: connect mail server failed!
ProcessMsg opResult = 0"

Hello Tommi,

I'm Jefferson from Brazil and I have exactly the same error when I try to configure my gmail account on smtp settings....

My version is :
ver ---- V4.02.R11.00031114, [000 31 114]
Version: V4.02.R11.00031114.12001.140600, BuildTime: 12-11-2015 14:29:28

I also tried to create an account in another smtp server (like smtp2go.com) but it did not worked too...

I created a local smtp server on my notebook and using port 25 without secure it worked, so, the problem is only with gmail.
I also tried my account yahoo and it did not worked :mad-new:

Do you know some smtp server on internet that does not require ssl or tls?

King regards

I don't know about Tommi but I haven't found one yet (and I have tried a bunch). So I am just waiting for a firmware update.

Thanks mate! I am new at this subject of DVR and IP cams. I downloaded my last firmware in a Chinese site after a lot of time surfing and searching on the Internet. Cold you tell me the official site that I can follow and always check for new firmwares?

Kind Regards
