Updated the README and install instructions to include the Neos SmartCam, I have tested the bootloader and firmware installation on my camera and it appears to work fine.

Could you upload a copy of the firmware?

Unfortunately I don't have a copy of the original firmware, I had overwritten it quite a while ago. I should probably make that clear in the readme.

Updated README.md
Added information about the lack of original firmware uploaded to the repository for the Neos SmartCam

I have a NEOS smart cam, I could take the firmware off of it for you if someone could tell me how?

Anyone managed to get the Neos firmware? After last update of Xiaomi-dafang-hacks firmware the feed is really slow lag. So want to go back to original firmware. Has anyone managed to get it? Let me know pls.

Is the new version of the f/w any faster? Any other missing features/benefits of note? Can I set a network location to save a continuous feed of the video/audio or is it still onboard storage only?

If anyone is willing to give it a go, the (slightly vague) instructions for extracting the original firmware are present in this repo, namely in the /hacks/ folder. It feels a little beyond me at the moment, and I do not have a spare camera to try it with.

I have a camera that I could look at if you want, what do I look at??

Well you will need to disassemble the camera, identify the serial communication headers, attach wires to those headers connect them to a USB to serial converter of some description and attempt to communicate with the camera. You might start with this page.

Hi there, I'm the lead developer on Neos' IoT team, which is responsible for the Smartcam 👋 While obviously I can't officially endorse this, unofficially I'm a hacker at heart and its pretty cool seeing people making the camera do things it was never meant to!

Let me have a chat with our security team to find out if there's anything sensitive in the firmware images we have, and if there isn't I'll see if we can get it released somewhere public.

Wow, that would be nice..I do have 3 Neos, one of wich I have tested with the Xiaomi firmware, it just would be nice to have the option to reflush the original firmware.

Also would be nice if we could suggest features!!!!

Do let us know if we can get the firmware

Having that feature and original firmware is perfect for the use that I would use it for 😊

Releasing the f/w would be a great PR move allowing us to choose between the custom features of dafang and stock. Having the ability to rollback woul be very beneficial if dafang just doesn't function the way a user would like as they test those features. I'd like to roll back 1 of my cams for a number of reasons but would really like to see rtsp streaming support and smb/network upload support added to the official f/w and I'd have all the rest(7) of my neos cams back onto stock f/w in a second.

yeah if stock firmware had rtsp streaming, no question, i would stay with original firmware. it's a nice feature to allow us to integrate with the like of Home assistant. Also any news on new hardware options? Maybe some cheap door sensors :-) or some cheap PIR motion devices? ;-)

RTSP stream is the exact reason I'm looking at custom firmware, if you can get that inbuilt, no need to look elsewhere, otherwise, a dump of the firmware, which someone is eventually going to do anyway, from an official source, would be very valuable!

I bought one of these yesterday, I was unable to get the confirmation email from their servers, not that i want to be connected to them anyway, so I just desoldered the flash chip and dumped it.

I've flashed the firmware mod from this repo and it works ok. Since I haven't run the camera without this mod I've no idea what the performance is like on stock.

It'd be nice for some firmware support or something from the devs but I'm not counting on it.

No issues installing by following the instructions for the Wyze, took 5 minutes.

once the NEOS firmware is available. Could I flash it onto a Dafang camera? Not looking for PTZ controls.

But I like the NEOS smartcam app 👍

And if it does gain RTSP. Then I’ll add them back into homebridge. 🥳

Im maybe being really stupid but i cannot see where on the current README file etc the Neos SmartCam is referenced??

Do you just use the Wyzecam V2 instructions??

Self declared amateur enthusiast here so require a bit of spoon feeding

Many thanks

@davy932

So the updated files can be found in the commits of this pull request rather than on the main repository. This is because this pull request has not yet been merged.

To answer your question more directly, yes I just used the Wyzecam V2 instructions.

Follow the instruction for Wyzecam V2 and nothing happen. Just boot as normal

Hi, yes. Did mine last week. Everything went smoothly. I did use a 16GB card, not sure if it helps but I deleted all partitions and created a single 512MB Fat32 partition.

I've made a blog post incase it helps: https://ryanfitton.co.uk/blog/install-dafang-custom-firmware-to-neos-smartcam/
