Description

We are in the process of upgrading all Old Coax Cameras with new IP Cameras. Protect is working so much better than the Old ZUUM Solution. Any time we had to submit videos to anybody the only way they could play them is to have the proprietary codex, not even VLC would decode without the 100mb install. 

 

We ended up with 3 Gen2 Plus's, one for each site. We have upgraded the HD's to the 5TBs. As of today, our longest running Protect is 2 months with 6 flex cameras on it and it is 30% full. The second one has about a month 1-G3 1-G4k 3-Flex. and it at 38%. Our 3rd site is still being setup which will be 3-G4k and 1-G3. We will be adding a few more sites and about 15 more cameras over next few months. 

 

Protect is so far a great upgrade from where we were at before, though some drawbacks we have run into.

  • It is a single point of failure no way to HA the devices or raid the HD's.
  • The Gen2 Plus runs Very Hot!!!
  • We had to create our own viewer with a raspberry pi using displaycameras.

Going in the future I am excited to see this platform grow. Two main things I would like to see:

  • A backend server to manage the Protect Instances, as well as the ability to auto export events to a network device.
  • An APP on Roku, apple, chrome cast, etc... To have a viewing station.Capture.JPG3 Protect Boxes
