There is a new firmware update coming for the Alarm.com ADC-V515 1080p Camera w/ HDR. The update will allow you to disable the microphone and two-way audio speaker for the camera. Any ADC-V515 that is online and set up with an active Alarm.com account will automatically receive the update.
Please be aware that Alarm.com has merely announced that the update is being pushed down in the near future, and they have not provided us with an exact date of when it will happen. Alarm.com does have somewhat of a history of announcing firmware updates a bit on the early side. Don't be completely surprised if the update doesn't happen sometime very soon. But we're hopeful that Alarm.com will push down the update sometime this week.
Again, no action is needed on your part to receive the update. As long as you have your ADC-V515 Camera online and set up with your active Alarm.com account, then the update will be automatically pushed down over-the-air (OTA) across the Alarm.com servers. Your ADC-V515 will be ready to receive the update thanks to its 2.4 GHz WIFI connection with your local network. Please note that no indication will be made at the camera while the update is being applied. The LED will just remain solid green to indicate a connection with the Alarm.com servers,
After the update has been applied, it will be easy for you to disable the audio functions for the ADC-V515 Camera from Alarm.com. Just log into the Alarm.com website on a compatible web browser, and then choose Video, followed by Settings. Then select the ADC-V515 Video Device, and then Device Info. There should be a toggle option for you to turn the camera's microphone and speaker ON or OFF. This is a convenient option if you no longer wish to use the audio functions and capabilities for the ADC-V515, or if you want to disable them temporarily.
Do you have any thoughts on the ADC-V515 or any other Alarm.com Cameras? Have you tried the audio functions, and do you think having the option to disable them will be useful?
