There are required wires, nuts and connectors etc. everything will come in a box itself so you don’t have to find around the house.
Wifi signal requirement is 2.4 GHz and not going to work on 5GHz. It has two way talk feature, screenshot feature etc. via their app. Look for the installation videos below.
I could make a video of the installation but honestly, Amcrest did such a great job of creating those videos itself, I attached those links here –

Setup a video doorbell in Amcrest App
Note: Does not comes with wedge brackets but easily build one using 3d printer from local city office or library. I didn’t need one but friend of mine did it via public library and works great. Link here
App Support and Digital Views
To view and control your doorbell camera and it’s settings, you will have to use their Amcrest Smart Home App (Available for iOS and Android)
Another option , which I am using it as in HomeAssistant and Blue IRIS integration. Yes, it has RTSP support like I said earlier and so smooth integration to the Blue Iris.
HomeAssistant and Blue iris integration –
Some of my friends were able to integrate directly via amcrest platform in HA, something like this – Full link here
Binary sensors available for Motion detection, Online/Offline device status etc. Also available is Sensors and Camera entities so you can add it to the HA dashboard.
Blue Iris integration? Good installation and configuration link here. This is how I did mine.
Few suggestions to Amcrest from all of us–
Secure the app via 2-factor authentication or Duo
Provide some more compatibility with HA system via Doorbell button binary sensor
Have some MQTT support and this will be #1 choice for all DIYers
Thumbs Up. I am thinking to order one more for my back door as well. Overall it’s great choice and I like it compare to prior two ones which I’ve tried.
