Re: AD410 Snapshot Quality Low

Lmanning - the Quality setting here relates to the amount of compression in the JPEG snapshot. See http://fotoforensics.com/tutorial-estq.php for a good article explaining this. For the AD410, you can see the setting "video.quality=5" which is 1 level below the best. At this setting, there...

Re: AD410 Snapshot Quality Low

LMANNING - I have not paid much attention to AD410 snapshots until you pointed this out. I concur - they are not close to the full resolution of the 2K camera but instead the snapshot resolution is hardcoded to 720x576 - even if the quality in the SH app is set to HD. I tried to view and/or change ...

Re: Web UI for IP Camera won't bring up login screen - Not Found 404

Actually, SmartHome devices do have a web server built in. That's how they process all CGI/API commands via http.

What they do lack is a web User Interface menu for local setup/configurations and instead rely primarily (but not exclusively) on the SmartHome mobile app.

Re: RTSP (VLC) and ffmpeg syntax

I recommend searching for and downloading the Amcrest HTTP API doc to learn what all the "Get" device capabilities commands are. There are a lot. I find this command to be the most useful to list the current active configurations... <ip>/cgi-bin/configManager.cgi?action=getConfig&name=...

Re: RTSP (VLC) and ffmpeg syntax

Since the debug log says "subtype" is not recognized as a command what must be happening is that the shell you are executing the command in is interpreting the "&" to run the following text as a separate command asynchronously. This is normal behavior for a shell. Try just pu...

Re: Surveillance Pro Font sizes

My laptop display is also 3840x2400 with a Windows recommended scale of 300%. At that scale, the desktop is perfectly readable, but ASP and SmartPSS do not honor the scaling as they should. You CAN workaround this! Right click the ASP icon / Properties / Compatibility / Change High DPI Settings / Ch...

Re: AD410 - "call notification" disables app AND chime alerts

Hello first-time poster. I'd like to know what you thought was inaccurate about my reply. Look at all the questions asked here on this community and then wonder why contacting tech support isn't usually the first choice.
