Hi Guys, I've been told by QVIS that my 4 year old unit isn't worth repairing. Domestic use only.
So I'm looking for a reasonably priced replacement 4 channel POE unit , that will last longer and be easy to install and use.
I have 4 OYN-X EYE 4mp POE cameras, they all work perfectly, it's the unit that won't record, replay or keep time. It has 4 POE ports. Disappointed to discover that the expected lifespan of the HDD is only around 5 years.
I need remote access through our mobile phones.
Screen shows 4 cameras are constantly recording but says nothing to play back. I replaced the system battery because the clock wouldn't keep time, it still only works for an hour then reverts back an hour. QVIS tech dept said it wasn't worth repairing.
I'll speak to my mate first he's a TV engineer. If the HDD isn't compatible with my old unit, it could maybe be used in a new unit. Or maybe buy a new unit with a hard drive already fitted. I'll keep you up to date.
thanks for all the advice
My mate has a spare 1TB HDD he's going to install it later, but he's only a TV engineer deals with mainly hardware so not sure how to sync with the time servers.
I assume it'll be in the network settings ?
Update, new HDD installed now working, recording and playing back but only for 1 hour.
I reset the clock but after an hour it reverts back 1 hour back to whatever time i'd initially set.
I searched the menus but can't find where to sync it to the time server . Is there anyone near Glasgow that could help ?
