    Thanks a lot! I am living vicariously through you at this point, as I am sure many others are. I agree it is a very nice touch to include the pigtail wires and the connector, but I am wondering where I would fit the (apparently) bulky connector. Solder and shrink-wrap would be the solution there, I guess.

    Hmmm...I assumed that the chart above, which indicates "NVR Compatible", meant ONVIF. By the way, the chart above indicates the Skybell HD has only 802.11 b/g only, but that is inaccurate, as mine but is connected to an "N-Only" configured Wi-Fi radio.

    VorlonFrog, what app does the doorbell indicate you use to operate/receive notifications? I'm happy that we can record with Blueiris, but the slow loading app and 2way audio bug with Blueiris Android limits it's functionality as a real doorbell cam.

    I am an iPhone user, and the iOS app is named Hik-Connect.
    I won't know until I return home from work this afternoon just how well the doorbell and app does (or doesn't) respond/notify.

    Thanks, looks like it's available in the Play store as well.
    Hik-Connect - Android Apps on Google Play

    I didn't see any mention of doorbell notification features, but I guess it would just play off their current alert capabilities.

    How slow is the Blue Iris loading "bug" within the android app. This is the first that I am hearing about it...

    I agree, solder and shrink-wrap would be MUCH easier to work with. Still, the kit pretty much has you covered, which I wasn't really expecting. There's even a loading resistor included if you choose not to connect your bell/ringer.

    I wouldn't call Blue Iris for Android loading a bug, it just feels slow to load and switch between recordings and live view. Sorry for any confusion.

    Sounds like my Skybell HD iOS app, but I am using an old-ass iPhone 6. :smash:

    Keep the reviews coming! So since this doorbell does not talk Onvif, what does RTMP stream mean? I have a Hikvision DS-7716NI-SP / 16 NVR. I want the doorbell to stream through wifi then through my LAN to the NVR. I have a 16 channel NVR but how does that work when it it does not directly connect to one of the Ethernet ports?

    Thank you

    Okay, I got the camera wired up, used the load resistor so we don't have to listen to a doorbell ringing in the house (we have terriers who HATE doorbells.) Setup was a little difficult, and I may very well reset it and start over this coming weekend. For now, it connects to the app on my phone and provides video. What has thrown me initially is that the MAC address printed on the ID sticker on the box is NOTHING like the actual MAC address registering from the device.

    ID Sticker: 14-2F-FD-xx-yy-zz
    Actual MAC: 00:95:69:aa-bb-cc (LSD Science and Technology Co.,Ltd.) WTF?!?

    For the benefit of others, here are the open ports detected from the nmap scan I ran against it:
    Code:
    Nmap scan report for 192.168.1.210
    Host is up (0.012s latency).
    Not shown: 65531 closed ports
    PORT     STATE SERVICE   VERSION
    554/tcp  open  rtsp
    |_rtsp-methods: ERROR: Script execution failed (use -d to debug)
    8000/tcp open  http-alt?
    9010/tcp open  sdr?
    9020/tcp open  tambora?
    
    The good news is, SADP v3.0.0.10(20170119) does detect the camera.

    Here's a snapshot taken with the Hik-Connect app. Nothing has been done to this picture. It looks that bad on my phone, as well. :( And before anyone asks, I *did* remove the plastic shield from both the lens and the IR led ring. No, it's not scratched, either.

    Blue Iris cannot get any ONVIF information from the camera. It fails with HTTP error response in the 12000 range, I believe they were 12029 (Connection could not be established) and 12031. It does detect the open RTSP port, but doesn't have a clue what are the actual RTSP path names.

    Now that it's darker outside, I snapped an IR picture. There's bad IR feedback at both the top and bottom of the image, as you can see.

    I'm afraid I'm going to have to contact LTS for some support help. Either that, or remove the cover and try to re-focus the lens, which I'd rather not do.

    It works well enough, I'll have revisit the 2way audio settings for my cube (hikvision 2432).

    Wow, those images are rather disappointing. I'm hoping you have a defective unit or something!

    I got a better result when I turned on the front porch lights last night. I sent both pictures you see posted here to LTS overnight. Let's see what they say.

    What's also terribly concerning, is I cannot raise ANY kind of web interface from the device. No browser, no port, nothing. How are we supposed to manage the device without it? The app is strictly cloud-based, another weak point. When I woke up this morning to check the image using my phone, the cloud server had logged me out. Ummm, the point of smart phones is to stay/keep logged in, isn't it? I had to re-enter my freaking username and password both this morning.

    Chatting with LTS Support this morning:

    "There currently is no web interface and that is only a 2MP camera."
    "The RTSP paths are not available at this time as well."

    :banghead:

    It's DEFINITELY going back.

    Also FYI, it appears to be the same firmware as this prior HikVision device.
    That device provided the following RTSP stream URL:
    rtsp://ip_address:554/mpeg4/ch01/main/av_stream

    Here's a Technical Bulletin from HikVision regarding that prior device.
