Excited to test this thing out! Really easy to setup, just plug into Ethernet and power on.
An issue I ran into was the instructions didn’t mention waiting until Green (some products don’t go Green until fully setup ala Apple Airport devices). Even with Green I had to cycle it because ADC saw the SVR, but then couldn’t connect and told me to cycle. I also didn’t realize the front power button could power cycle, I unplugged the cord instead.
The other thing I saw from a possible usability standpoint is it said Mac/Windows computer required and the instructions showed it being plugged in by USB, but I don’t think I have a regular USB to regular USB cable, but then internet setup worked well. So it’s a mixed message for end-users in my opinion.
The SVR asking to either do independent HDDs or in a raid-array was awesome, I wish more network drive products would do this.
After setup I thought it was recording, but I had to go setup a recording schedule manually. Maybe I missed a setup here. I also got my recording schedule and ADC told me “Your device isn’t recording”, but a refresh cleared this error.
These are all just possible usability things I can see end-users having issues with. Overall it was easy to setup.
The thing is incredible and so far it is really easy to use. I love how easy it is to access on computer or phones. I’m impressed.
Going to keep running it, but the delay to access saved video clips isn’t really that long.
