It does not appear that the IPC-HDW5231R-ZE has the capability of saving information to the local SD card and FTP (or NAS) at the same time. Question 1. Is there a way to modify the configuration file to allow storage to both locations (Local and FTP)? Question 2: Is there a way to have the camera store to the local (SD card) so I can use iDMSS to view the video and jpg files and then have Smart PSSS store to the FTP server for longer trm storage? My Setup: Smart PSSS running on OSX and SD card in the camera. Question 3: If no then is my only other option to get a Dahua NVR. The main issue here is that I have several non Dahua cameras which make setup/ monitoring a little more challenging.
