LaView CUBE camera system

Posted November 14, 2015 By Landis V

Bought one of these a while ago.  It’s alright.  Not particularly secure, software is annoying, and I think there’s a lot more that can be done with it.  Gradually working on improving it, this post will capture random notes on it.

Bought tinyCam Monitor Pro in the Play store when it was on sale a while back, fought with cameras for a bit before giving up.  Came back to it for a bit today and was able to make it work with the following settings:

  • Camera vendor:  (Generic)
  • Camera model:  Generic URL
  • JPEG/MPEG/RTSP request:  rtsp://ip.addr.or.hostname:554/H264?ch=(1-8)&subtype=1
    • Where ip.addr.or.hostname is the IP or hostname of the LaView device and (1-8) is the channel/camera number you wish to add.
  • Protocol: RTSP over UDP (MPEG/H264/H265)
  • Username: valid username on device (default “admin”)
  • Password: valid password for username provided above (default for admin “123456”)

ONVIF Device Manager on SourceForge, appears to provide an NVR for network video forwarding and storage on port 8000.  Not  a ton of info on the port/protocol, but did run across it in the setup.

Pogo Mobiles, SiliconDust HDHomeRun, and cabling

Posted January 10, 2015 By Landis V

Last night I finally got around to doing a little bit with the Pogo Mobile units I had installed Debian on.  Not much so far, just got dnsmasq loaded on the unit that will become my DHCP and DNS server (replacing the same functionality on my router, so the next time I swap out a router I don’t have to worry about transferring internal DNS or DHCP reservations).

Haven’t done much of anything with the unit that I will be configuring as a CA, but did run across a couple of good reads on how to do a CA “right”.  The OCSP article fills in a piece I’d like to have if I’m going to go to the trouble of setting up my own CA “for real”.

I stopped at Charter yesterday and exchanged one of my digital cable tuners for a CableCard, so I am anxious to get my HDHomeRun set up and start playing with it.  I don’t like the way my CATV cable is organized, and it’s also older RG-59.  Having purchased some RG6, I’m now in the process of centralizing that system, pulling new cable to at least a couple of locations, and will probably use the opportunity to put an ethernet drop in my garage as well.

Open PCI DSS Scoping Toolkit

I tinkered with this at work, but found it lacking from a production standpoint.  This may be due in part to working outside my typical Debian-based comfort zone.  Will probably look at it again at home and see if it shows more promise with experience.

Integrates with netfilter using QUEUE.  Interesting methodology, potentially quite useful.
