How can an upgrad really be an upgrade to the security system when the addition of 24 hour recording requires customers to purchase new cameras to accomadate this feature? At 170 a piece I have 3 that in less then to years need to be updated. ROGERED !
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
What camera do you have?
Let's start with that first. And I believe it's "up to" 64 GB memory cards (which are so cheap these days anyway), You can use anything less too... infact as Far as I have heard about it... I didn't hear anything about what actual memory can be used. I think the Touchpad can just handle up to 64GB so most technicians are advising the highest capable memory a client can use.
Personally I have a lot of android phones and GoPros so I have a lot of micoSD - Nature of interest I guess.
but what @Gdkitty said earlier in the post..., it is technology. Not everything is compatible with everything. (iPhone example was good to relate as well).
Or you can relate it to the Windows 10 Upgrade. Even though Microsoft pushed it out to every Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users. Not everyone could get it based on their hardware. Even though it was Free!
But I get you, cost is a crucial point to make as well.
Just curious, I have 2 (soon to be 3) cameras monitoring my house. I see that Rogers has introduced 24/7 monitoring if I purchase a 64GB card. I have a couple questions:
Does it need to be the card purchased from rogers?
Is it limited to just 64GB?
most importantly, Can I record multiple cameras? It would be a pretty silly feature if I could only record 24/7 from one camera.
You can use any Class 10 64GB memory card which you can get anywhere as long as its a Class 10.
From what i know its limited to a 64GB memory card as i put one in last week & it worked but a 128GB did not work.
Hopefully Rogers updates it to work with a 128GB class 10 card.
I wanted to chime in and give additional information as @Meowmix stated.
I myself am using a 64GB card (class 10) using the iCam1000 (Indoor/Outdoor) extra I had laying around (since I got iCam2000/iCam2 now for main use).
For the information about for multiple cameras or single camera.
It can be found on our website: Here (Click "Hardware tab)
Officially a 64GB is recommended, 'some' 128GB cards do work however it can not exceed 7 day/24hr limit. (Max recording can be done up to 1 week)
Also note, Micro-SD cards contained within an adaptor will not work.
(They were tested as not, if it works for you great but corruption may occur, same with 128GB as the limitation is to do with the touchpad)
Multiple cameras are not available currently at this time, only information readily available is the launch for one camera able to work with TVR.
Hope this helps and clarifies few things,
