That dave99, i'll have to give it another try. I wasn't wowed when I tested it, but only gave it a couple of minutes. Do they use it remotely? With mobile devices?
Nate7311, can you tell me any more? Do you use the client or the webserver? Do you access using a laptop or mobile device?
Nate, could you possibly post a screenshot or 2 of the web interface? What i'm seeing is very minimal and looks like something from the 90's
Umm surprised no one has suggested the HIKVision iVMS software. Works great and its free!
One other note is that it is lightweight since it uses the motion detection in the cameras.
You can use zone minder if you want, that is all the ubiquiti software is based on.
We use Luxriot VMS for our cameras. They are not HIKVision, but the cameras are on the supported camera list (http://www.luxriot.com/eng/support/cameras/)
We have a desktop client that can remotely admin settings and has a web client to view live and archived video.
Zone Minder looks dead (last update 2013?)
1 release a year isn't exactly "active" but I guess dead wasn't strictly accurate
I may give it a try at some point. I actually had a response from synology regarding the CPU bugs and have managed to improve things a little by changing the resolution for live view but still not overly happy.
