How to configure an IX2 network attached Storage using EyeSpyPro Hosted Video Recording service

This article will explain the steps necessary to activate and register an IOMEGA IX 2 or 4 network attached storage device to your EyeSpyPro customer account.

The IX series NAS drives support full motion based JPEG recording as well as scheduled h.264 recording.

First you will have to purchase one of the IX series devices from an iomega distributor. For pricing the MSRP is listed on the Iomega web site. The current recomended part numbers are ix2-200  2TB - 35427 and ix4-200d  4TB - 35430.

1. Unpack the drive and connect to local area network using an Ethernet cable
2. Use the cd or a network discovery tool to locate the drive then connect to it via the standard IOMEGA interface.
3. Locate and press the manage button in the upper right hand corner of the page
4. Select the cloud services button on the left side of the page
5. Select Axis Video Hosting System from the options
6. Press the enable button
***There will be an activation process that displays the MAC address and the Owner Authentication Key upon completion. Make sure you document this number as it is not accessible from any interfaces after you close this window. If you receive a success message and no device information is displayed you can deactivate and activate again.

You must now add the NAS to the subscription

7. Log into your partner account and browse to the manage customers link
8. Locate your customer account and select the details link associated with it
9. Browse to the manage NAS section and select the edit link
10. Type in the total number of NAS devices to allow on this account
11. Select update customer and complete order.

You can now add the device to the user account through the user portal.

12. Login to the user account and select the settings button
13. Select add local storage device and register using the MAC address and the OAK which was displayed in step 6 and you should receive a success message.
*** You must use the MAC address for this registration, the serial number on Iomega devices is a different number and will fail if you attempt to use the serial.

You can now configure up to 8 local cameras to record to this device

14. Select Settings and then select the device you are configuring recordings on
15. Select Configure Triggered recordings
16. Select the trigger, save to, and resolution using the drop down menus
*** When recording to the NAS you can use full resolution and frame rate supported by the camera. The higher resolution and frame rate used the faster this device will consume storage.

You have now configured recordings to be stored on the NAS. To access these recordings you will find entries in the standard recordings page that will display a status bar.


When the play button is pressed a normal preview will take place; however when you select AVI or MP4 to download the clip it will upload to the server and then download in full frame rate and resolution.
