One of the worst situations for a security installer is when a client discovers their surveillance system has failed to capture an important incident due to storage failure. Unfortunately it’s the “nature of the beast”, things break - hard drives and other components can be faulty or wear out. A great way to keep the client onside, is to keep the recording system up and running. At the very least, you want to be immediately informed if there is a storage failure.
In this tutorial I am going to show you a very simple way to set this up, using the MOBOTIX Storage Failure Detection function. Setup correctly, it enables the camera to notify you directly if a storage issue is detected.
