Upgrading to Ring Video Doorbell 2

I am super happy with the Ring Video Doorbell. It has proven both practical and efficient when I receive guests or packages or simply want to see what is going on outside. I have even spotted deers passing by in the night.

As they announced the Ring Video Doorbell 2 there were two things that mainly caught my eye.

  1. Full 1080p Video
  2. Quick Release battery.

The version 1 only had 720p and you had to unscrew and remove the entire doorbell to recharge it as the battery was integrated.

Some negative aspects:

The version 2 comes with a mounting bracket so you can use the existing holes, you still have to remove the version 1 plate.

Ring version 1 adapter

The fit with the adapter bracket is not perfect, it is actually really bad since it leaves a large gap at the top of the unit for water to enter. This is because my wood wall is not entirely straight and the version 2 unit has screw holes not on the top to force it onto the plate.

Ring video doorbell 2 misalignment

The finish on the version 1 is really good. Looks nice and feels nice. Premium material. The finish on the version 2 is really cheap and made of plastic. Center in the image below you see the version 1 in venetian bronze.

Ring video doorbell v1 and version 2 faceplates

The silver plate looks way to cheap so I have to go with the dark one.

Here is the end result:

Turn off Voice on Topfit Tesla Cam

If you like me got the Tesla Model X topfit dashcam you might have experienced the annoying voice. If you mail the seller he will send you a guide on how to remove it. 

Here is a short summary.

  1. Update the firmware by inserting the memory card into your computer,
  2. Transfer the two files to the card
  3. Re-insert the card into the camera
  4. Wait for the camera to update
  5. Press the button once to turn of the sound

    Important: There are two files he sends you which are firmware upgrades to the unit. I put them on a OneDrive link below:

FIRMWARE Tesla Model X Topfit Dashcam

I have had some trouble with it and I think it works now.
Here is his reply in English unformatted. (I know it is a bit off):


Sorry for the late reply.

Its actual irritating to hear the voice “DVR recording” steadily. But dont worry. Ill always with you and solve this problem.

Firstly, please confirm with us about if the RORO CAM APP in your phone is the ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version.(Please see the 1st screenshot )

If the app is the latest version which marks  ZX06-170717V2.0,you just need press the shortcut button to close the camera sound. (Please see the 2nd screenshot )

 

But if  the RORO CAM APP in your phone is not the ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version,but is ZX06-170717V1.0 version. You need to upgrade the app to ZX06-170717V2.0 latest version first,and then continue with the following step.

The app update steps are as follows:

1. Format the SD card in the RORO CAMAPP of your phone first (Note: you need to connect the Tesla-Topfit WIFY) and then take it out from the dash cam.(Note: the APP is RORO CAM,and not the ROPRO CAM)

2. Then copy the two files in the attachment into the SD card.

(Note:You need to use a computer and a card reader)

After the file is copied to the SD card, re-insert it into the dash cam.(Note: At this point, you need to start the car while you operate)  The LED light flashes,and the dash cam will say DVR recording if it has completed upgrading.

3.  After the upgrading has been completed, its okay to re-format the SD card in the RORO CAMAPP of your phone ( Note: you need to connect the Tesla-Topfit WIFY again)

4. After the app completing upgrading, its okay to press the shortcut button to close the camera sound.

 

We dont know if the above description is clear, and if there are any uncertainties or the camera still makes noise after trying , be free to let us know,and then we think of other ways again. Now, trouble you to help us try according to the above steps.

 

Hope my reply can help you. Any other problem, be free to contact me again through this email or my Facebook( Teslafans Lee) or Whatsapp/ Skype( +86 13570835023).

 

Kind regards

Teslafans

Enable windows hello login with camera on Windows 10 Intune joined machines

Symptom:

If you have a Windows 10 machine with a camera that supports Windows hello login you might see that Windows Hello is disabled by administrator.

windows 10 hello disabled

This is becasue of the Intune Policy in Microsoft Intune.

Implications:

Note, that if you want to enable Windows Hello you will also force the user that uses Azure AD join to enroll with a pin, adding an extra step to the Azure AD join process.

Steps:

Navigate to https://portal.azure.com and log in with admin credentials and select Intune.

intune blade

Select then Device enrollment.

device enrollment

Select then Windows Enrollment

windows enrollment

You should then see Windows Hello for Business, click it.

manage windows hello for business

You may create several policies based on Groups. However there should be a default policy that is assigned to everyone.

default policy

I had the policy disabled. Now click enable.

whfb status

You do not need to change any settings, just Ensure that you allow biometric auth. Then remember to click “Save”enable biometric and click save

That is it. On a Windows 10 Device you can update the policies or log off/on/restart to recieve this new policy.

windows hello enabled

You can also force this policy Down on the Device by syncronizing it:

syncronize with intune

Støydempende bilde!?

Ja, du leste riktig. Det finnes støydempende bilder og det er ikke så alt for gal pris heller.

Illux leverer lyddempende bilder alle mulige fasonger og du kan selv velge motiv eller bla igjennom en database med mange forskjellige bilder.

Av alle levereandørene som leverer dette må jeg si at Illux har den beste websiden og prisene er omtrent det samme.

https://www.illux.no/lyddemping/

Men selvsagt gikk det ikke helt på skinner.

Første bildet jeg fikk tilsendt var ødelagt under transport. Det hadde fått et støt i rammen. Dette så ikke noe særlig bra ut.

20171115_230610

Her sendte jeg en mail til Illux og de ordnet opp i løpet av få dager. Jeg måtte ta masse bilder av embalasjen å sende inn, men det var greit. Husk å ikke kast all embalasje med en gang 🙂

Illux sendte så et helt nytt bilde på en litt tryggere måte. Hele bildet ble levert på en pall for å unngå skade.

20171130_181920

Perfekt stand. Nå spør du kanskje hvorfor jeg kjøpte et slikt bilde? Vi har 2 etasjer og det er ikke noen dør mellom etasjene så det blir noe romklang og ekko i gangen. Et slikt bilde reduserte umiddelbart ekko og romklang. Nå fikk jeg lyst på flere. Jeg skal faktisk kjøpe et bilde til å ha på TV stuen også for å hindre at lyden spretter av veggen så lett.

Sette inn en dør og lage en vegg

Tenkte jeg skulle sette inn en dør for to grunner:

  1. Redusere støy
  2. Enklere å holde stuen varm

For å få dette realisert så måtte jeg sette inn en dør og lage en vegg over døren. Det var ikke lett. Utgangspunktet så slik ut:

Først ut er å skaffe seg døren. Det var lett. Jeg kjøpte en massiv tredør med støydempende karm.

20171003_173015

Andre steg var å feste karmen. Det var et rent mareritt fordi den ene veggen var ikke rett og jeg hadde ikke et ordentlig vater. Ble kjempesur og Pappa måtte komme å hjelpe meg. Jeg trodde det skulle være lettest å gjøre dette, men å feste karmen var utfordrende.

Neste steg var å lage en ramme øverst og starte på veggen. Etter rammen var på plass dyttet jeg isolasjon inn mellom karmen og veggen for å få det helt tett.

Siste steg var å sette på gipsplater og skru det fast. Her passet jeg på å knekke gipsplatene riktig og måle nøyaktig når jeg festet dem. Brukte også riktige skruer som jeg ikke skrudde for hardt fast. Var bare uheldig en gang faktisk på skruene og ødela platen kun på et sted. Flaks

Nå gjenstår det bare sparkling og maling. Gruer meg sykt til å sparkle.

Uniggardin solskjerming til god pris

www.uniggardin.no leverer solskjerming til en meget god pris basert på mål du selv tar. Jeg har brukt det nå flere steder i huset og har fått god erfaring med måling og produktene. Her er de forksjellige typene og hva du må tenke på når du måler

  1. Festingen. Bruk denne festeguiden eller så får du problemer med å føre gardinen helt ned

    Her er det feil festet av meg og gardinen går nå ikke helt opp til rammen.
    20171115_210112

  2. Trådene, velger du duette så ser du ikke trådene. velger du vanlig plisse så ser du trådene. Det skinner også lys igjennom.
  3. Mål nøyaktig. Og husk at du kan kjøpe en for å teste først hvis du har flere like vinduer.
  4. Skal du ha gardinen på et vindu som slår ut? Husk å velg riktig feste. Høyre vindu slår ut og har en ståltråd som hindrer at gardinen får en bue på seg når jeg åpner vinduet.
    20171115_210054
  5. Fest gardinen i viduet så sparer du plass i selve rammen
  6. Det er stor forskjell på stoffene, høyere pris gir bedre kvalitet på stoffet
  7. Velg mer mørklegging en du tror du trenger. Det er lettere å åpne gardinen hvis det er for lyst enn å ha en gardin som slipper igjennom for mye lys.

Get black tires with Rubberspray

Black looks really good. I bought 4 cans of Rubberspray and decided to paint my tires black. Bear in mind that this does not protect the rim and it can get scratched off so be careful and do not use a high pressure washer on the tires. 20171015_144740

The application part is really easy and anyone can do it. I know nothing and managed to get a decent result.

Here are my pro tips:

REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK

  1. Clean your tires

    20171015_144728

  2. Use the whole Can at once, do not stop spraying until the can is empty. First layer will look something like this. Just spray and keep the wheels close so you can leap to each tire.

    20171015_145153

2. Keep your cans warm and stop if there is little gas left or else you can get drops. 20171015_152132

Don’t worry about the drops, you don’t see them later.

3. Minimum 4 layers. 4-6 is recommended.

 

End result is cool.

Wash with care!

 

Tesla Model X pedals replacement

You may replace the break and accelerator pedal plus the foot rest. The process is really simple.

20171009_192206

The break pedal, simply remove the old rubber pedal

20171009_192529

On the accelerator pedal you just slide the new pedal over the old pedal

20171009_192220

Be ready to fumble for 2-3 minutes while you jerk the rubber pedal on. Once it is fixed it stays and looks good.

Easy and nice modification.

Tesla Model X Topfit Dashcam

I decided to get a Dashcam to monitor the traffic situation in front of the car. Some things to note about this dashcam:

  1. It does not operate when the car is parked
  2. It fits perfectly into the car and does not require any extra wire-work
  3. The control app is simple.

This is probably the cheapest and nicest way to get a camera into your car if you do not require rear view capture or parking capture.

It comes in a really nice box

topfit dashcam box

Instruction manual in English with a mounting manual. The English is okay enough.

It is a bit bulky but looks okay. It has a proximity sensor that takes a picture if you swipe your hand under the camera. It also has a motion sensor that locks pictures and movies from being deleted i case of a crash. It has a microphone and a small speaker. It can capture audio from the cabin.

 

The camera fits nicely into place after you remove the old plastic cover in your TMX

The whole process is super easy and it looks good afterward.

There are two things that I would mention as a negative aspect.

  1. The controller app is really simple and does not offer a lot of functionality. It does not always show the content of the camera properly so you might have to restart or click on the app several times.
  2. There is a voice coming every time the camera initiates, “DVR RECORDING STARTED” this is super annoying and I messaged the seller. He gave me a recipe for fixing it but it require you to update the firmware on the camera. Extra work.

that aside, I this is a good buy.
