You can also use Chrome and Firefox, but it requires Flash to be enabled to view the live stream on all of the cameras. We contacted Tiandy tech support and they said they are working on moving away from Flash before the end of the year.
Correct UM#2, which is why it was one of the first questions we approached Tiandy with when we contacted them. While most IP cameras have moved away from this well in advance, some cameras (new and old) still use flash.
December 2020 appears to be the time of reckoning for Flash support across web browsers.
I like the IP address, username, and password printed on the label. Since the password is the super complex and unique password of admin, it does not qualify for the California IoT law. Someone should purchase one in CA and then submit a violation with the state...
After the initial login of admin/admin the camera forces you to change the password before allowed you to configure anything. Not sure if it can brought into a VMS/NVR with the admin/admin password though.
We purchased the cameras directly from the manufacturer (Tiandy), and if you or anyone else is interested in learning more/purchasing their cameras, please email me at email@example.com, and I will link you to the contact Tiandy gave me.
We've searched online for Tiandy cameras to order but there were no results (as some may have already seen). To answer your question, it would be direct-to-dealer, as there is currently no distribution atm.
Isn't Super starlight feature of camera supposed to keep the camera in color mode on much lower light than usual?
While the test is very informative, I kind of miss the conclusion on how the camera performs on low ambient light while forcing day mode of camera. And compare the result of that to other cameras like you usually do..
