On microSD Card Recordinganime 3

SD - IP camera

The microSD card is suitable for recording for a relatively short time. A 32GB microSD card can hold up to several days.
 [Default Settings] Recording starts automatically upon inserting the microSD card to the camera. New files overwrite old files once the microSD card reaches full capacity.
For stable recording, choose Class 6 cards or of faster write speed. NAS (Network Attached Storage) is recommended for long term recording.

■If the microSD card stops recording, its lifespan has been reached. Please replace the card with a new one.

■To avoid losing data, periodic backup is strongly recommended.

■We are not responsible for any data loss during camera use.

microSD Card Formatting anime 2

If you are going to use an old (used) microSD card for Viewla, formatting by the SD Formatter is recommended. This maximizes the performance of the microSD card. 

*In general, the default format tool preinstalled to the PC is capable of formatting a wide range of devices, which is not optimized for microSD cards. In some cases, it may degrade the performance of the card. This is why we recommend the SD Formatter.
