    Nope... I was able to figure out how to connect to the camera using a ESP8266 NodeMCU and putty, but I couldn't extract the firmware from the bin file. Andy recommended I remove the camera from the PTZ housing and send him just the camera to save on shipping costs so that's what I did. I just sent it back to him a few days ago via USPS so I'm sure it's not there yet.

    Not as well as I had hoped. It took 3 weeks for it to be delivered to China via the US Post Office and then I found out I hadn't sent everything they needed so it took another three weeks to send in the rest of the parts. When I finally got the camera back a month ago it was missing the main cable that goes from the camera to the lens. Andy sent me a new cable which I just received earlier this week. I got the camera back online, but to my disappointment the auto-tracking doesn't work properly. When the camera detects motion it spins around one and a half times and then returns back to the starting position. I'm not blaming Andy for any of these issues. He has been very responsive to my questions and has gone out of his way to help. I guess I'll just chalk this up to a lesson learned. When it comes to firmware updates if it's not broke don't fix it.

    Hi,

    I have the SD52C225U-HNI purchased from Andy. I am having an issue where it cant add properly in Blue Iris. I can get it in but no PTZ. I have a second SD52C225U-HNI (also purchased from Andy - but it shows up as a General_IP PTZ Camera - works just fine, Onvif auto detect. I was planning on updating the firmware on the first SD52C225U-HNI- not sure which one i use in the USA.

    This thread has me a bit concerned about updating the firmware. Should I be? Which Firmware for the USA?

    1st SD52C225U-HNI Firmware: (NOT WORKING CORRECTLY IN BLUE IRIS)
    Device Type SD52C225U-HNI
    Software Version 2.422.0000.8.R.E4.2512.3S.NR, Build Date: 2017-03-15
    WEB Version 3.2.1.430772
    ONVIF Version 2.42(V2.2.1.414651)
    PTZ Version 3.02.20.RHNP

    Can I take the firmware from the 2nd SD52C225U-HNI which works no problem & put it on the 1st SD52C225U-HNI?

    2nd SD52C225U-HNI Firmware: (WORKING CORRECTLY IN BLUE IRIS)
    System Version 2.622.0000000.1.R.E4.2512.3S.NR, Build Date: 2017-11-21
    WEB Version 3.2.1.518243
    ONVIF Version 16.12(V2.4.1.513183)
    PTZ Version 2.300.0000000.10.RHNP_170926_2438


    Thanks,
    Rich

    I also want to upgrade to this latest firmware on my SD52C225U-HNI but after reading this thread I'm a little worried about bricking my new camera - anyone else has issues other than the above?
