    2. Cameras not listed as tested are not owned by Bosch. Solving issues might take longer as it requires collaboration with the camera vendor.
    3. Bosch support teams might need to refer to the camera manufacturer’s support line to help fixing the issue.
    4. We consider the firmware listed on the ONVIF website as the minimum firmware version of a camera.

If the problem is a firmware regression, we might need to refer you to the camera manufacturer for support.
