Most system recording errors are often caused by poor planning and an underspecified storage device. Giving attention to the right areas when designing the video storage component of a surveillance system will ensure trouble free recording.
In this article we guide you through 7 points that should be considered when planning the recording and storage component of your MOBOTIX system.
Did you hear the one about the shop owner who took it upon himself to find a storage device for his MOBOTIX system? He finally decided upon a D-Link DNS-323, (purchased on ebay for $290), to record megapixel video from 7 MOBOTIX cameras triggering motion detection in a high activity site. Not surprisingly the NAS instantly became the source of continuous recording errors. The only way to fix the problem was to pull it out and replace it with a more suitable NAS.
The lesson here is that the decision was based purely on price, without consultation. Which ended up costing the end user more in the short term.
In this tutorial we will show you how easy it is to setup and configure a MOBOTIX camera to record to standard off-the-shelf storage such as the the QNAP TS-series NAS.
