  1. Would be nice it the costumer service answered the phone when you call them, none of the four cameras I purchased connects to my wifi. I got two wifi setups and one is 2.4ghz, but no connection, how to I go from here?

  2. We have been trying for 2 days to get wifi cameras connected to the NVR without success and without assistance from customer service.  I have called and been transferred and hung up on, been told that someone would call me back, and submitted requests through the website.  No response and I just called again to find out that apparently tech support doesn't work weekends!  Thinking of returning but would love for it to work.

  3. One of my greatest concerns about LaView is that they do not provide a SLA for support. I created a support ticket last week and five business days later, it’s still not answered.

    But this is a good tutorial. Thank you.

    I’d like to know if non-LaView WIFi cameras can connect to LaView NVRs. I have a WiFi peephole camera on order because LaView still doesn’t offer one. I really want to connect this to my NVR.

  4. Customer service is overseas. It is difficult to understand what they are saying and massive delays were caused. Is their a USA based office to speak to someone. I don’t mean any offense to those who are overseas but clearly issues were overlooked

  5. Bullshit from 2:50–3:00. It doesn't discover shit on 2.4ghz frequency. Tried it on all 3 cameras. Either app is crap or everything is. They hired a Mexican guy for the video so it would look like a US shop.
