I have two of these cameras:
But they also have the night-vision attachment.

As with others experiences, they hardware is fantastic, high resolution, solid cast aluminium case etc. Unfortunately, they firmware is utter crap - half the features dont work properly, rendering perfectly good hardware unusable. For example, the motion detection works, but every time it detects motion it sends the same photo every time! So a week later, when the motion alert triggers, it sends me a picture from the week before!

I am a software engineer by trade, but getting anything out of the vendors is an uphill battle. I ask for new firmware, they send me a new build of the 'IP CAM' desktop software...

Perhaps someone here will recognise this camera by its specifications, and tell me what kind of board it is and point me to the SDK so I can build myself a functioning firmware? If more information is required I can pull the camera apart and photograph the boards (there are 3 4cm*4cm boards stacked, with the lense on top - a very small package).

Here are some pictures of the boards. I assume "j5" (jumper in top right hand corner) is the RS232 connection?

HI3512, so Hivision Chipset.
Have you taken a look at the files section?

I put  the BSP's I've bought, or had others buy  8) up on there.

These are the droids^H files you are looking for.
