Unable to Stream Video/Constant Disconnect

My indoor cameras just stopped working. Is this a known issue?? Or is this because I changed the picture quality to 1080p? I changed it back to 720p, and now they're working again.

Was having the same issue with my indoor camera. Made sure the keypad was updated, the app was updated, the wifi was working and still nothing. Then I realized that unplugging the camera in and plugging it back in doesn't necessarily reset it fully. Here is the hard reset process (which re-installed the camera to the system) that worked for me:

-Unplug camera and plug it back in.
-Reset the camera by holding the button on the top for TEN seconds, then release it and the camera will reset once released.
-The camera light should come on as a solid yellow(may look light lime green-ish) followed by a flashing white light (might look light baby blue-ish) with audible cues to get started.
*While this was happening I had my app open, and it notified me about the camera installation process when it realized the camera was hard reset. Follow instructions on your phone, and it should re-install it just fine.

Opened up the app, and it worked! Hope this helps some of you and you don't need to go through the replacement process.

I have long since updated my keypads and reset my cameras, and I am still having this same problem. It's actually worse now because some of the videos are incomplete when I download them. So I can't view them in the app or download them and view them.

Fortunately, I have a lot of other cameras so don't have to rely on this janky security system.
