Today my NVR (ZP-NK16-S) automatically upgraded its firmware from v220.127.116.11 to v18.104.22.168, rendering it incompatible with zViewer once again. Here I go asking Zmodo for a downgrade firmware once again...
This kind of "security breaches" that these upgraded firmwares are solving are a non-issue to me, really. My system is behind a firewall that I configured myself through iptables and, besides, I'm more comfortable managing the public ports on my firewall than letting the NVR send information through the cloud (and consuming my data quota). I really don't need the streams to be encrypted or anything like that. I use the cameras primarily to monitor our cats. Wanna see it? I show you (screenshot of our "prison break" cat escaping from home below). My system not working the way it used to when I researched and bought it, that is a big issue.
So, I have to ask you Zmodo, please, send me this firmware and stop messing with my security system. Please. You and me both have better things to do with our time. Please. Please.
