  • 4 x Panasonic BL-VP104W 720p Wi-Fi Network Box Camera

    Install the BL-VP104W 720p Wi-Fi Network Box Camera from Panasonic in an indoor setting to record footage in 720p resolution at 30 fps. With a 1/4" CMOS image sensor capable of recording stills at 1MP, and a 3.6mm lens, the camera can be used for round-the-clock surveillance. With zoom capabilities, digital noise reduction, and auto gain control, the camera can be adjusted to your needs and works to correct and compensate for poor lighting conditions. Offering a dual stream of real-time imagery in H.264 and JPEG formats, as well as prioritized stream control, the camera works to maintain its frame rate in all scenarios. With video motion detection and privacy masking, the camera can be used in a variety of settings, even those which don't receive much traffic, like storage units or basements, or in personal areas like in homes. With smartphone monitoring and ONVIF compliance, the camera is designed for easy setup and use.

  • WD My Cloud Expert Series EX4100 8TB 4-Bay NAS Server (2 x 4TB)

    Add 8TB of USB 3.0 and Ethernet storage to your Windows or Mac system with the My Cloud Expert Series EX4100 8TB 4-Bay NAS Server (2 x 4TB) from WD. The My Cloud EX4100 is a high performance and high capacity NAS server for SOHO and home users that is well suited for centralizing media and files in one location, accessing and sharing photos, videos, and files from virtually anywhere with computers, smartphones, and tablets, HD media streaming to Smart TV's, gaming consoles, and media players, comprehensive backup solutions, and more. It features upload speeds of up to 115 MB/s and download speeds of up to 107 MB/s.

    The My Cloud EX4100 is pre-configured for a user-friendly setup and system management. It also has an intuitive dashboard that helps guide you through the process of setting up users and shares, as well as customizing system features and monitoring storage. It also features a toolless and trayless drive bay design and drive installation, helping to simplify the hot swap process.

    This NAS is powered by a 1.6 GHz Marvell ARMADA 388 Dual-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 2GB of DDR3 RAM will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs, and network connectivity is achieved via the 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports. Having 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports not only provides network redundancy in the event that one port fails, but it also provides link aggregation to help enhance network performance and provide an enhanced HD media streaming experience. This NAS also has 3 x USB 3.0 ports.

    The My Cloud EX4100 features four SATA drive bays that can accommodate the included 2 x 4TB 3.5" WD Red drives. The included WD Red drives are built with a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 64MB cache, and 5400 rpm rotational speed. They are also designed for 24x7 NAS environments and use NASware technology. NASware technology helps to further optimize WD Red drives for the NAS environment in respect to factors such as vibration compensation, optimized power usage, and data protection in the case of a power loss or disruption.

    This WD NAS also features AES 256-bit encryption that helps provide additional protection for your data, and RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, JBOD, and spanning can be used to configure various levels of data performance or redundancy. As this NAS features a built-in processor, this means that should a user wish to take advantage of the RAID functionality, the RAID controller is integrated into the NAS and thus RAID functionality will be controlled by the NAS and its hardware, instead of being controlled by software.

    The My Cloud EX4100 operates on 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and includes an Ethernet cable and a power cord. It is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, 7, and Vista, as well as Mac OS X Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion. Also included is Milestone Arcus Surveillance software with unlimited camera licenses.

    Centralized Storage
    Store and organize your photos, videos, music, and files in one safe place. Access and share them virtually anytime, from anywhere
    Media Streaming
    With the built-in Twonky DLNA-certified media server, you can seamlessly stream all your HD content to media players, Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and other DLNA-certified devices
    Backup Solution
    Irreplaceable photos, videos, and files are kept safe with multiple, automatic backup options for all the computers on your network. For PC users, WD SmartWare Pro offers options for how, when and where content gets backed up. For Mac users, they can utilize all the features of Apple Time Machine to protect their content. Customers can also automatically "back up their backup" to another offsite My Cloud Expert Series device or to a supported cloud service, including Dropbox, ElephantDrive, and Amazon S3
    Multiple RAID Options
    Armed with multiple RAID options, you have the power to customize the system with the configuration that works best for you. Choose RAID 0 for enhanced system performance; RAID 1 for mirrored data protection; RAID 5 for data protection and best capacity; or RAID 10 for fast performance and ultimate data reliability. Other options include JBOD and spanning.

    RAID Roaming allows you to keep your RAID array intact when you move drives from one My Cloud EX4100 device to another. RAID Migration lets you change your RAID configuration and expand storage without losing content
    Data Security
    256-bit AES volume encryption provides additional protection for your valuable photos, videos, music, and files
    Recycle Bin
    With this optional feature, deleted files are not erased completely from the NAS, but moved to a special folder and can be retrieved, adding a second level of defense against accidental data deletion
    WD Red NAS drives with NASware technology
    The My Cloud EX4100 comes populated with WD Red NAS hard drives, which are built for NAS systems. WD Red drives help to improve performance and thrive in 24x7 environments.

    WD's NASware technology further helps optimize WD Red for the NAS environment. From vibration compensation, optimized power usage, and protecting content in the event of a power loss or disruption, the firmware is designed to deliver improved reliability and system performance
    Enhanced Media Streaming and Network Redundancy
    Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for link aggregation helps enhance network performance by giving you an enhanced HD media streaming experience. It also provides for network redundancy should one of your network connections fail
    Power Redundancy
    Dual power ports offer you the option of adding a second external power supply that will take over should the first power supply fail
    One-Touch USB 3.0 Copy Button
    Plug in your camera or USB storage device to the built-in USB 3.0 port on the front of the system to automatically copy photos and videos with the touch of a button, making it easy to centralize your media content
    Plex Media Server
    Plex Media Server is used to host the content and plugins that are then streamed to Plex big screen apps (including Plex Home Theater) and Plex mobile apps, either on the same machine, the same local area network, or over the Internet. In addition to the platforms supported by the front end, the server is available for FreeBSD, Linux and nine different NAS devices. Plex Media Server can be configured to index content in any directory on the machine it is run on, as well as to automatically acquire content from such sources as Aperture, iPhoto, and iTunes. Content may be transcoded by the server before it is streamed, in order to reduce bandwidth requirements or for compatibility with the device being streamed to.

    Plex Media Server allows extensibility through the addition of plug-ins. Many such plug-ins are available through the built-in Plex Online digital distribution service. This service can be used directly within Plex Home Theater or Plex Media Center's GUI.

    Plex uses the metadata from several free open-source online libraries to automatically find all artwork, media descriptions, and theme music for the entire library.
    Powered by My Cloud OS
    WD's My Cloud OS delivers a suite of tools and apps that empower you to take control of the media content that matters to you most.
