First off, the system constantly flickers in and out of usability. For a camera system that is suppose to integrate with a hub, the network collapses everytime during an event and can be overwhelmed and compromised. If you have multiple cameras engaged and one is triggered during an event, the entire system sizes to work until that event is recorded. Unfortunately, that means you can't continue to view a live event, all other cameras are knocked out and the system then can be overwhelmed and someone can act from a different direction.
This is a severe security flaw and from what I have seen, an ongoing issue with no resolution in sight.
The hub should be capable of allowing me to see the live events while actively recording without the system collapsing. Even locally, the system is hard and difficult to use. When I place a USB in, it records more then what I see online, so it helps, but I am still unable to see a live event while it is recording.
Because of that, this system should have a 2 out 5 record and it is unfortunate reputable reviewers provide high marks for this system when it can be so easily compromised.
I am here to ask for help, but at the end, it's a hardware issue with a hub that's only capable of doing one thing at any given time. Also, manual recording is also not always available. It seems the system is just made available for recording at its leisure.
Sadly, bad performance overall and I can't recommend the system to people I know. This system fails at the end of the day.
You should be able to live stream another camera while a camera is triggered/recording. Could you provide more details about what you're experiencing? Is this an intermittent issue or does it always occur?
Attached is my two cameras and I cannot manually record.
You have Live 2K steaming active. You can not manual record if active that's why the button is not there. You can if it is off so try that.
In short: No.
The problem with this system is that even if I am live streaming in 2K, it should be able to simultaneously record an event in its original format while I am watching it live. Also, the "record" option shouldn't disappear just because I am watching something in 2K. These are details purposely being kept about the camera system. Which means I have either lag or am missing events when in fact, I should be able to record all events regardless of the circumstances.
Since learning of the deficiencies of the system, I have disengaged the 2k live view and performance has improved. I still don't know if it has improved reliably as of yet, but I can say that the hub is not up to par to be able to use this system to its full potential. At the end of the day, the system is strictly a 1080p recorder since that's the only evidence you would be able to provide.
So I had a hanging problem again, lasted for 3 - 5 minutes in "Connecting" while activity was ongoing. I couldn't get a live feed.
This was me on the LAN of the system with live 2K disengaged. You can see, it was just a UPS delivery, but I couldn't pull up or engage on the situation while it occurred. By the time I was able to get a live feed, the truck was already gone.
