Hikvision DB1 (WiFi Video Doorbell)
Please note that we are currently working with this camera and trying to find a way to get it to work with Alexa, but at this time is IS NOT compatible with Monocle or Alexa devices.
This doorbell camera works with Alexa using the Monocle-Gateway and a Synology NAS

Hi @avaledon ,
No updates yet. We do have one of these units in house and have a workaround in the works, but it’s not quite ready.
Good to know you were able to get it working using the Synology hosted stream to the camera!

I replaced the Hikvision DB1 with an RCA Security DB2 which is essentially a Hikvision DB2. Still no worky with every possible setting. Any updates on your end on the potential work around?
If you would like to temporarily expose your camera feed to us, we could test our current fix and see if its working for this newer model as well. Just open a support ticket and we can test it this coming week.
Very interested in this too. Let me know if I can help testing to making it work.
Any update on this?

We have working prototype code that appears to work with this camera, but it’s not complete nor integrated into the Monocle Gateway software yet.
When do you plan on completion/integration?
This is slated for the next release version of Monocle Gateway. So probably a month or two out at this point. Once we have it ready for testing, we can provide an early access copy for you to try out. Thanks, Robert
Glad to hear! I’m also interested. Please let me know when available and if you need help testing.

Count me in to help test as well. I have a RCA HSDB1 doorbell cam and a new Echo Show 5. I run the gateway in a docker container so its easy for me to test it if you need another tester.

Just noticed these posts.
Here also purchased a Hikvision OEM DB2 WiFi Video Doorbell.
I can stream main and sub streams:
rxxp://192.168.1.100:554/user=admin_password=password_channel=0_stream=0.sdp ==> 1536X2048
rxxp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org:554/ch1/sub/av_stream ==> 384X512
Use ONVIF (no passwords) for main stream:
Use JPG capture for main stream.
There are a few folks now purchasing the new DB2 doorbell cameras. None are sold here in the US by Hikvision. The are sold labeless or under RCA or EZViz.
I just switched over from Ring to this one. I am very impressed with it.
Please let me know what I can do helping to get this video doorbell in the database.
