Day Light Saving Time Clock Update

On Sunday October 30, 2016 at 12:00 midnight (00:00) Day Light Saving Time (DLST) ends, the clock will be changed backward 1 hour , kindly update your time attendance machines’ time to maintain accurate attendance logs.
Also this apply to all surveillance systems (DVRs, NVRs) that doesn’t have automatic DSLT update.

Either you have to setup the DLST in your Time Attendance machine by pressing Menu or M/button then go to Date/Time settings & click DLST option enter start time (MM-DD-HH-MM) & end time (MM-DD-HH-MM) or you can simply update the time settings manually on Sunday or Monday morning.

For any future assistant, you can submit a new ticket with your requests or issues.

NAS Drive Selection Guide
Posted by SIA Support on 18 November 2014 11:29 AM

There are three important factors to consider when choosing the correct drive for NAS applications: the number of drives in the application, the reliability of the drive
relative to the anticipated workload and the available security features. Seagate offers drives to support NAS, from small home NAS to large enterprise arrays:
Seagate® NAS HDD, Constellation® CS HDD and Constellation ES.3 HDD.

What Hard Drive to use with your NAS Device - NAS HDD vs. Desktop HDD
Posted by SIA Support on 18 November 2014 11:27 AM

NAS vs Desktop

Evaluating HDDs for NAS Applications 

When choosing the right drive for any application, there are many factors to take
into consideration, including what the drive will be used for, what applications
it will run, what requirements the environment will place on the drive, and what
levels of capacity, performance, reliability or speed will be needed. With more data
streaming into homes and small businesses than ever, there is greater demand
for simple, centralised NAS storage arrays, but the demands on a drive in these
systems are high. Enter the Seagate® NAS HDD, the first Seagate drive purpose
built for 1- to 5-bay NAS arrays.
Traditionally, small NAS solutions employed desktop drives, but they demanded
more than a typical desktop HDD could reliably deliver. Those demands include
NAS error recovery controls, drive vibration and advanced power management
features, all of which are addressed with Seagate NASWorks™ technology.
By choosing Seagate NAS HDD with NASWorks, you can expect more reliable
performance from your 1- to 5-bay NAS systems.

 

NAS Error Recovery Controls

Seagate NASWorks helps to ensure drives remain active in a RAID environment.
For example, in a typical desktop environment, if a drive needs to rebuild data,
it can take 20 seconds or longer. In a typical NAS application, if the drive takes
longer than seven seconds to recover data, the RAID assumes the drive dropped
out of the array and will start the time-consuming task of rebuilding the entire
drive. With NASWorks, however, the drive will stop trying to recover data within
seven seconds. Instead, the drive will notify the RAID that it needs help rebuilding
a specific piece of data. The RAID can help correct that data from backups,
and a full drive rebuild is avoided.

 

 

Dual-Plane Balance

Traditional desktop drives emit small levels of vibration
because of their rotating magnetic platters. For laptop and
desktop systems, the vibration of a single drive has little effect
on a system. However, if the same desktop drive is integrated
into a multi-drive environment like a NAS box, the effects
are amplified and can cause reductions in performance. For
multi-drive applications, NASWorks helps dampen drive
vibrations with dual-plane balance. By better balancing the
drive motor, drive vibration is minimized, making it more
reliable in 1- to 5-bay environments. (For larger environments,
Seagate enterprise-class drives offer additional features to
better displace the effects of vibration, further improving drive
reliability.)
