CK Gen 2+

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Considering how importanmt CK Gen 2+ is to netwrok and Security I thnk a protect mode or softhutdown on power fail is called for.

 

We live in an area where we are susceptible to power outages / surges and while I have most of my equipmernt on battery backup and surge protected it would be nice to know that the CK would gracefully go into safe mode on power fail as most of equipment which has a spinning hard drive in it.

 

Or somne other safe mode on power fail.

 

Cancel this!! --- I found out about the soft shutdown and the battery in CK Gen2+. Thanks to the contributors. Thank you all. You guys (and gals) are the best.

Supposedly the Gen 2 CK has a battery and on removal of power, will gracefully shut itself down without loss of any configuration. you can try it by removing the poe connection and watch it continue to run until shutdown.

I did not know that. I am hesitant to try it without checking on the spec first. Did you see it online in the CK spec? Thanks.

My understanding is it is true for both Gen2 CK's
