General Discussion / Need help identifying this camera...
« Last post by dwc_f1 on February 13, 2018, 03:16:55 pm »
I recently purchased this camera from Amazon but need some help to get it configured and update the firmware.  The vendor has been no help.  It is a Chinese camera and the description is a "DigiHero DIY Mini Wifi Camera 1080P".  It is packaged in a white box with a green logo which says AHD Camera. 

The camera seems to boot up and works okay in P2P mode.  The camera has an internal access point and works with an Android app on my phone to configure.  When I try to connect it to my wireless router using the instructions (very poor English) the camera "reboots" to save the settings but then goes back to the defaults after the reboot.  I found that there is also an HTTP address I can use to access the camera menus, but no luck there either.  I can edit/change the settings, but when the camera saves the settings and reboots, it loses all of my changes.

Does anyone know where I can find firmware for this camera or know anything about this model?  I'm sure there are probably 20 or 30 "other name" models that are the same unit.

I want to apply for forums to study and find friends.
In fact, the site is beneficial to the work of the group.

Thanks for highlighting this.
Can you please guide me how to verify this on my own camera.

As many other here, I also bricked my camera by flashing wrong firmware. Is there any method to unbrick the camera? Wifi seems working but it losts camera's id, so now it's called just IPCAM- instead of IPCAM-1234D

Camera I bought is this below

I'm thinking to buy serial console Recovery cable from ebay and try to connect to pins with it. Pins I think are in right top corner in photo below

Or is there any chip for ptz camera I could buy and replace that original one? No luck after finding for same motherboard.
Firmware / Re: Is there such a thing as OpenNVR firmware?

And yes, I realize I can double or triple my budget and get a better NVR. I might just do that. But first I wanted to understand what the minimum viable setup looks like.

The sucky part about the things is the monolithic package containing the recorder and webserver components (It's Sophia for XiongMai-sourced stuff.) One of the first tasks is to pick it apart, see what the component programs are (it's effectively a distro inside a distro) and what they do.

These systems have wildly different functionality inside and outside China, if you read chinese you'll see there's a lot of things like automatic upload to central authority sites and similar stuff that isn't there in non-chinese mode. It could be that the binary is packed up tightly so that people can't see the level of snooping that goes on.

The actual Chipset linux distro itself is easily buildable from the SDK as mentioned.

What would be AWESOME would be to port zoneminder to these devices. If you check out the zoneminder website you'll understand why.

Firmware / XiongMai-based DVRs - Sophia?

Has anyone managed to unpick the monolithic Sophia binary to work out what its components are?

This is the one that contains the swiss-cheese uc-httpd server along with DVR functionality.

I can see various GPL symbols in it, so I'm regarding it as fair game for examination.

Has anyone managed to get XiongMai or anyone selling devices it uses to comply with GPL?

I do not understand that. What site does the seller not open to download?

You can not connect directly to the settings?
