NSC-DB2IP Security Camera
16FTNight Vision IR Range
Are you tired of your everyday, run-of-the-mill video doorbell? It can be difficult to find a doorbell security camera without paying expensive monthly fees for limited storage. But we have the solution! With the NSC-DB2, you can take control over your camera and its storage.
Use this doorbell as a standalone device with the slot for a microSD card. Enjoy up to 128 GB of onboard storage. Or you can add this to pretty much any NVR via the ONVIF protocol.
With the Guarding Vision mobile application (iOS and Android), enjoy quick and simple setup, push notifications, remote access, instant playback, and much more. Anytime someone rings your doorbell, you’ll get a notification sent straight to your device. Answer the door with the push of a button and communicate with your visitor with the full-duplex 2-way audio.
With the PIR true motion detection, this doorbell won’t blow up your phone with false motion alarms. Neither drifting leaves nor shifting shadows will trigger the PIR alarm. The PIR sensitivity is adjustable, too. With these safeguards in place, you’ll only receive the notifications you care about.
Unsure how to install a video doorbell? The NSC-DB2 uses the wiring already present in your current doorbell. It’s instantly compatible with all mechanical chimes and most digital chimes. This makes the installation process a breeze. Plus, the doorbell comes with all the tools and hardware you’ll need.
The NSC-DB2 is a video doorbell with a digital chime that sounds when the button is pressed. Use it on its own or wire it to your existing doorbell.
PIR Motion Detection
The PIR (passive infrared) motion detector provides enhanced motion detection that won't give off false alarms. Adjust the sensitivity directly from the Guarding Vision app! The camera will start recording when it detects motion. In addition, you can enable two different alarm styles as well as push notifications based on motion detection.
The NSC-DB2 shoots video at 3MP @ 30 FPS. This is one step above FHD (Full High Definition) resolution, or 1080p. With this camera, you’ll be able to stream and record footage with 2048x1536 pixels, which will give you a picture that’s crisper and clearer than your standard high definition camera.
2.2mm Fixed Lens
The NSC-DB2 has a 2.2mm Fixed Lens. That means it’s fixed at one length; it can't optically zoom in and out. The longer the focal length on a fixed lens camera, the more zoomed in it is and the more close-up detail you'll be able to see. But the shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view and the more area your surveillance will cover.
The NSC-DB2 has a fixed length of 2.2mm, giving it a horizontal field of view of 105°.
Wifi Security Camera
Ditch the long, obtrusive wires running across your floorboards and walls. The NSC-DB2 allows you to connect wirelessly to your network using Wifi to capture and record video. Wifi security cameras are often easier to install, and they give you greater flexibility for placement and mobility.
The NSC-DB2 has a built-in microphone and speaker enabling you to easily communicate with family members, pets, coworkers, or even intruders. The crisp, clear 2-way audio makes this camera perfect for access points to your home or business, baby or pet monitors, and so much more!
IP65 Weatherproof Rating
This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 65. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles (the first six). It can also withstand streams of water jets from any direction (the five).
Rest assured that when you install your camera outside, it will have no problem withstanding the elements.
16' Night Vision IR Range
When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 16 feet, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.
The NSC-DB2 is a part of our H-Series line of products. As such, it's packed with features that would please a power user, yet it's simple enough to operate for a novice. Easily view and manage your cameras and recorders anywhere in the world with the free mobile and desktop applications. For the power user, these apps give you the power to adjust advanced settings on the fly. For the novice, you can use the apps to simply view live feeds and play back recorded video. Whatever you need to accomplish, it's all right there at your fingertips.
Plug & Play
If you're creating a new system out of our H-Series cameras, set up is insanely easy with our H-Series line of POE NVRs. Simply plug the camera into the back of the H-Series NVR and you have instant video on the recorder's HDMI interface. You can also view and manage the NVR through free desktop and mobile apps, such as Hik-Connect and iVMS-4200.
If you want to add this camera to a security system already set up, that’s no problem. This camera complies with the protocols set by the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF). This means, as long as your current recorder is ONVIF compatible, you’ll be able to set this camera up with your current system.
Verified PurchaseDual band WiFi for the win. After trying numerous other doorbell cameras that had terrible wifi I chose this one, have t looked back since. PnP, great support, highly recommend.
Verified PurchaseI read the reviews on this site before ordering. I have used the Ring, the Nest and the August doorbells. Each one of them were a terrible waste of money. None of them (at the time) would connect to a 5Ghz network and my mesh network prefers not to create separate networks for 2.4 and 5. Each one of the doorbells lasted about 1 to 1.5 years and if they were online usually the person was long gone by the time the apps showed a video image of their back side.
I began my search for a video doorbell that would connect to 5 GHZ and was NOT Ring. The only one that appeared that seemed worth anything was this doorbell. The price was great, no servers or cloud fees. So I decided I have already made some bad decisions that cost much more than this unit. Installation was a breeze I had it up and running in about 30 minutes. I was able to pull up the video feed in just a couple of seconds (maybe even quicker) and so far no Wi-Fi drops. Of course I will update my review in 6 months or so if I start having major issues. But so far this doorbell is AWESOME. The software may not be as intuitive as I am used to, I was still able to set it up without cracking open the manual and now it's a matter of adjusting my zone detections.
This is my experience with this product, I know a few people on here have had problems but it seems like most of them can be sorted out by switching to the Guarding Vision app.
Verified PurchaseHad the unit installed and and it worked for a few days. After a few days unit started causing chime to trigger and unit to reset constantly. We had end-user replace chime and power supply. Connections are now stable but we are having issue getting unit to re-connect to H-NVR - This worked before we replaced the Chime. We spent 2 hours waiting for a call back from tech support. Once we got the call back agent was rushed, gave our tech a suggestion and got us off the phone as quickly as possible. Suggestion did not work so we put another call back in. Call back never happened and we spent hours onsite wanting for call back. Now 2 days later and an upset end-user we are still waiting for help with the unit.
Please improve your tech support for us pros. We are burning tons of time and lost money we can not afford to loose in these times.
Verified PurchaseI just replaced my Ring doorbell with one of these. Boy am I glad I did. Not only does it have a great picture, but you have a lot more control over your settings like motion sensitivity. It works a lot better than my old one. Plus I was able to get it to record on my Lorex NVR! All of this and no yearly fee! I have an old mechanical door bell and a 16 volt, 10 VA transformer and every thing works like it should.
Verified PurchaseHaving purchased this for use in Australia I can confirm that this is one of the better prosumer grade doorbells on the market.
notifications are virtually instant and my clients have not reported any delays. onvif is a plus and it works really well.

Verified PurchaseWe have been installing these Video Doorbells for a few months now. The DB2 is packed with features such as PIR motion detection, Night Vision, 2-way Audio, notification schedule settings and more. The customers love that it comes with 3 Face Plates. As the installer, we love that it comes with the different style mounts at not additional charge.
The setup is pretty straight forward. We stopped recommending the EZVIZ app due to missed doorbell calls the app was not loading quick enough. We switched customers over to the Guarding Vision App and it has resolved those issues. The PIR has been great and there are very few false positives. If you know what you are doing installation is a breeze. I see a lot of reviews of customers stating the doorbell did not stay on, it almost is always related to your homes transformer so be sure to check that voltage first. With the assistance of Nelly's excellent support, we were able to add the customers doorbell to the NVR for additional viewing. We have installed these in residential T and business setting. The customers love that there are no monthly storage fees!
Verified PurchaseMy first doorbell wouldn't stay connected more than 24 hours. I sent it back and tried a second doorbell. No better. Still won't stay connected more than 24 hours. I have a 24v 40 VA transformer and my router is 10 feet from the doorbell.
I have a different security camera connected to the same network. That one is rock solid.
When it works, it works great, but the connection is too unreliable.
I will ask them for a third doorbell.
Verified PurchaseI got a couple of these for my front and side doors. I have a 24 VAC, 40 VA transformer that operates both of the units with with no problem. My house has three mechanical chimes and my NSC-DB2's can operate the front and back door chimes with no issues. If you have a weenie 16 VAC bell transformer, you might want to upgrade it first.
Installation and setup was trouble free. However, the doorbells continually disconnected and would eventually stay off line. The Guarding Vision App (recommended by Nelly's in the instructions) indicated that no newer firmware was available. However, there is a newer version on the Nelly's website, together with Batch Config Tool required to install it. (The doorbells don't have a web interface, so you need an App to adjust settings and Batch Config to update the FW.) Nelly's tech support was timely and very helpful. (Hint: Do the FW upgrade BEFORE you finish installation and screw on the front plate. You may have to do a hardware reset after the upgrade!) Once I did the upgrade, the WiFi connection has been rock solid on both units.
The devices can't be set with a static IP (as of FW rev: V5.2.4_190625 anyway), so you may want to set a reserved IP in your LAN's DHCP server to ensure that each device is always issued the same IP address. (Essential if you want to use ONVIF.)
It was then a simple matter to add the two doorbells to my Synology Surveillance Station system as ONVIF devices. And the Synology properly detects PIR motion from the doorbells so you can record either full time or only when motion is detected.
The built in PIR motion detector is quite reliable and not nearly as subject to false alarms as video image motion detection. The area specific PIR sensitivity settings are a nice touch. Image quality is very good, although it would be perfect if they could do hardware pincushion correction. But that's asking a lot from a doorbell.
All in all, a really nice device with all of the features I was looking for. (ONVIF, PIR, 3MP, mechanical chime control, and no monthly subscriptions!)
Verified PurchaseLet me preface by stating I've only had the camera doorbell installed for 4 days. I'm hopeful these early issues will sort themselves out over time. I'm impressed by the video quality and up til today the response time as well (more on that later). The first day of installing Guarding Vision app was challenging and a bit confusing. I must have reset the camera at least 10 times before the error messages stopped and it finally connected. I can't explain why it wouldn't connect since nothing was changed from the first attempt to the last successful one other then checking if the doorbell (mechanical chime actually was working without the app). Note: it was not! The final attempt was trying to use the AP Mode for Wi-Fi configuration, located on the last page of the manual. Oddly this is not possible as described and defaults to the normal installation procedure which went straight through without further issue. Of note is the change of proprietary viewer applications EZVID to Guarding Vision. Can't compare the two so not sure if this is an upgrade or just a licensing dispute. Today, 4 days after installation, someone rang the doorbell and I was through with the caller before the app acknowledged someone came to the door a full 3 minutes earlier. Restarted my phone just in case no improvement, then cut the power to the camera for 30 seconds then the camera and app work perfectly again. Hopefully this isn't a regular occurrence or I might have to ask for warranty relief. Based on the other reviews your experience may vary. Having spent some time comparing Nelly's version of this particular camera doorbell hardware (there are a few) I still believe they have the best combination of features this hardware can support. Thx for reading and I hope you'll consider this version in spite of these initial hiccups.
Verified PurchaseIn my earlier review I cataloged the issues I was having with this doorbell camera. I have subsequently resolved these issues. The primary problem was frequent disconnects on a daily basis. I had to do two things to get my system to work: First I replaced an ancient low powered transformer with a new 24V/40VA transformer. My voltage at the doorbell button went from 11 or 11.5V to 25V. I immediately noticed faster response time But I still experienced disconnects. Less often than before but still unacceptable. I woke up every morning to find that my doorbell had gone “offline” overnight. Finally I updated to the newest firmware version. Presto! Everything works fine now. No more disconnects.
