Re: IOS Amcrest View Pro Resolution Problem

I'm having this exact same problem and it is infuriating because it was working fine in the past release and I got excited when I saw an update to the app available which I hoped would fix the broken push notifications. Well it didn't, and now it introduced this new bug which makes it almost unusabl...

Re: Image Quality

I have the same problem, if I double tap to select one of the cameras the image is pixelated, if I swipe to another camera it clears up but the same thing happens when viewing recordings and I have not found a way to clear it up. I'm seriously regretting updating the app now because the update didn'...

Re: TV Interference

While I don't watch live TV I have had a garage door opener remote that was jammed by an older IP camera. In my case it turned out to be not the camera itself but the cheap AC adapter that powered it. I ended up replacing it with an old style iron transformer type (the old heavy bulky wall warts) wh...

Re: Push Notifications Not Showing up in Event List

It's now late March and not a peep? Is Amcrest even still in business?

Re: Push Notifications stopped working on IPhone

Mine have never worked right. I get a notification when I unlock my iPhone but unless I tap on it, it just goes away and is not in the event log. If I do tap on it I can see that motion event but any others that have occurred are gone. I have given up, the app is garbage and has not improved one bit...

NV4108-HS hard drive filling fast

I have a NV4108-HS NVR connected with four IP3M-954E cameras and my 4TB drive fills after only about 3 weeks. At my mom's house there is a different model Amcrest NVR (8 channel with built in POE switch) and five IP3M-954E cameras identical to mine and hers records *3 months* on an identical 4TB dri...

Re: How do you shut down an NV4108-HS?

I just yank the power cord, never had any trouble with that, it's no different than what happens when there's a power outage.

I suppose there's a possibility of corrupting a recording but I haven't yet had that happen. The operating system in these is on a read-only file system.

Re: Push Notifications Not Showing up in Event List

I have the same issue, did anyone ever figure this out? Overall I like the cameras but the app is absolutely awful, it is the most buggy app I have on my phone, basic features simply do not work. They really need to stop and put some serious focus into the software side of their core products. Nearl...

Re: Loud Fan NV4108-HS

I unplugged the fan in mine too, it has been running for several months without issues and temperature measurements show things stay within a reasonable range. The fan may be necessary if you have a particularly hot-running hard drive or live in a hot climate but in most cases you should be ok to un...
