145 General Q. How can I change protocol in DirectIP 2.0 mode ? 2019-11-08

The existing DirectIP 1.0 protocol has two modes, DirectIP mode and IDIS mode. You have to reboot the camera to change each mode.
DirectIP 2.0 protocol is a unified form of two modes. Without rebooting, the protocol can take advantage of all the advantages of DirectIP mode and IDIS mode.

In DirectIP 2.0, a camera boots up as a DHCP client looking for a DHCP server for about 40 seconds. Once no DHCP server is found, it starts to have a link local IP address.

136 Video Recorder Q. Recorders don't have power switch. Is there anyway to turn off the recorders ? 2018-07-17

Only way to turn off/on the recorders is to plug in/out power cable. 

The recorders don't have power switch or a UI on their software to power off. This is to remove a possibility that users accidentally press power switch off or click a power off button, resulting in a recording service halt.
