Re: Does price drop mean new cameras coming?

In all Honesty if your in a Low Light area and need the best CCTV solution for the buck I would keep the 4mp or lower in your line up. There are some really good 4k cameras out there for night time use but they are VERY costly to build and buy. Or in the areas you want 4k coverage but need a good n...

Re: Does price drop mean new cameras coming?

It looks like they are focusing on AI cameras as the next evolution, so you can probably get non AI cameras at a deal now. You can get interior 4mp cameras, however. But yeah, I think going 4k on all is the best. If you are looking to be as economical as possible I believe they still have 1080 exter...

Re: Amcrest Doorbell

I'm with you vixhex the hardware is great, but the software leaves a little to be desired. Honestly, I would be willing to pay a nominal fee for better software and app support. For example, my wife can't use talk back on any of the cameras I have 2-way audio setup because she has Android devices an...

Re: IP4M-1051 Audio

I have the same camera for about a year, but never had the audio issue you described. Glad to hear that you got it sorted out. A problem that I did have with that camera though is that the onboard loudspeaker isn't really loud at all, even with the volume maxed out. I have the camera mounted in my l...

Two AD410 Doorbells + Max Smart Home Cameras

Hello, I have 2 questions regarding Smart Home: Is there any issue with using 2 AD410 doorbells in the same house (1 for front and back door), and can they sync to the same chime? Is there any limit to the number of cameras that could be integrated to the Smart Home cloud? The KB article found here:...

Re: Can the New AI NVRs Analyze Non-AI Video?

Thank you for that answer, and I suspected as much. But just to be clear, with an AI camera and an AI NVR you can have area of detection with ability to turn off the cameras, but not with an AI camera or an AI NVR? Or did I misunderstand you?

Can the New AI NVRs Analyze Non-AI Video?

Hello, If I were to buy an Amcrest AI NVR and pair it with an non-AI Amcrest dome camera, would the NVR be able to do AI analysis on the stream? Going to kit out my mom's house soon and would like her to have the AI feature, but I am thinking that maybe I can use standard 4K cameras to reduce spend....

Can Amcrest Doorbell Work With View Pro?

I see it touted as an Amcrest Smart Home product, but I have a bunch of IP cameras that I access via DDNS using View Pro and would not want to have to use another app to view just the doorbell. And, if it does work with View Pro, do talkback and push notifications work (I would expect a push when th...
