This is a rebranded Hikvision doorbell

LaView has this on sale for $135 with coupon code "GROUNDHOG"
https://www.laviewsecurity.com/vi...amera.html

Amazon has the RCA version of this same doorbell for $150 (can be found cheaper on fleabay)
https://www.amazon.com/RCA-Doorbe...A+doorbell

Note that this was on sale for $100 during black friday

There are several brand re-badging this Hikvision doorbell. Nelly Security, RCA, LaView, LTS in addition to Uniden just to name a few see below for the one i'm aware of:

Nelly Security NSC-DB1 (comes with 32gb SDcard)
https://www.nellyssecurity.com/ns...-1129.html

LTS LTK6128W (I think you need to go through a distributor/installer for LTS)
https://www.a1securitycameras.com...amera.html

LaView LV-PDB1520F1 (16gb SDcard)
https://www.laviewsecurity.com/vi...amera.html

RCA HS-DB1 (16gb SDcard)
https://www.amazon.com/RCA-Doorbe...077KW2T1H/

Uniden DB1 (8gb SDcard)
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075V9ZKTY

ClareControl (16gb, through dealers)
http://dealer.clarecontrols.com/p...-doorbell/

Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP (also a KB6013, not sure the diff, get these through ali express)
http://www.hikvision.com/en/Produ...i6482.html



Power by existing doorbell wiring 16-24v, no need to periodically swap/charge battery.

Pro
Can record 24/7 to Local security NVR via ONVIF/RTSP
No monthly subscription fee unlike Ring but still have 2 way talk
Pretty good image quality and daytime performance
Firmware between different brand are interchangable/flashable as of time of this post
Multiple faceplate color option to choose from
IR LED are 940nm, no red IR LED visible when operating in IR mode at night

Con
Firmware still a bit immature.
Nighttime IR image has some glare/reflection (cleaning the Dome lens properly help quite a bit but does not totally eliminate the glare) see IPcamtalk thread for examples

Except for the fact that the Ring 2 is larger, heavier, requires batteries, and a monthly service to view old video, I'd say sure.

no its not. infact it's inferior.

this has built in micro sd, and can connect to NVR. and in doing so you cut out the middle man unless you don't have an NVR and you use the cloud base services. so this has a lot more option and flexibility and NO MONTHLY FEES.

ring has just done a good job of putting a lot of money in marketting to make the average consumer think they are the best and only option for doorbell cams.

thanks to HKvision and this product being rebranded hopefully people will see the light. if you are having to pay monthly fees, thats bogus

Blue Iris (PC based NVR software) has integration with Smartthings. and this doorbell can be access through Blue Iris, at least with the IP camera perspective if not the intercom perspective. what are you hoping to do via smartthings integration?

My understanding is that you lose the video of the bell is stolen or if the SD card is stolen. Would that be a true statement?

As for app, you can use any of the branded apps for this doorbell, or also Hik-connect. As this is a rebadged hikvision product, every brand's backend use the Hik-connect infrastructure anyway

Yes and No.
Yes if using the doorbell as standalone ONLY and nothing else, then if the doorbell is stolen or if the SD card is stolen, the video would be lost. The "free cloud" feature of this cam is not true cloud storage like the ring system, but rather act as a middleman to connect the app to the doorbell and stream the video saved on the bell. That's why there's no cloud subscription fee

No if using in conjunction with a security NVR or PC/Phone/Tablet based video recorder such as Blue Iris or TinyCam, then the NVR can record the stream 24/7 and you would have additional copy. The doorbell also can be configured to do FTP upload, so that's also an option for extra copy

Also note that the faceplate use a security (torx) bit to secure it to the body, so it is not exactly something that can be easily remove unless you bring a torx bit kit.

and exactly why this is so much better than Ring. so much flexibility. no chance of "missing" a recording because it will record continuous and one can review it later. easy to backup. full quality recording and not compressed like ring
