MxFFS Archive Storage – FAQs answered


MxFFS Archive is a recording failover feature, ensuring the MOBOTIX cameras can provide 24/7 recording uptime with no loss of footage.

When MxFFS Archive has been enabled in the camera, the video is written to the camera's internal SD card and then archived to the file server (e.g. PC/Server, NAS). If connection to the external server is lost, the recordings are saved to the SD card.

When reconnection to the file server is made, the video stored on the SD card is archived to the file server.

Here at MxInstaller we've received a raft of questions
 from end users and installers about MxFFS Archive, which we answer in this tutorial.
