Hey folks, got a strange one here! I’ve had two Hikvision IP cams added to my Vera Edge controller for awhile now and they have always worked fine. Just a note that I also use Blue Iris and that is the main tool I use for the cams but I’ve had them added to Vera just so I can easily see them on my dashboard and on the Vera iOS app and iOS Homewave app.
A few days ago I noticed one of the cams was showing as ‘not connected’ on the dashboard. Looked over in Blue Iris and it was working fine. Went into the config for the cam in Vera and a different IP address was listed rather than the cam’s static address I use. I corrected it to the right address and everything was fine until this morning the cam was showing ‘not connected’ again in Vera. Go back into its settings in Vera and the IP address has changed again! To the same address it had changed to last time!
The address it keeps changing to is a DHCP reserved address for one of my Echo Dots. What in the heck could be causing this??
