This cloud storage device was fairly easy to set up, but I’m also a techie person and know computers and gadgets pretty well for the most part (I still think most people would have no issues with it, though). You can either activate it from the Vimtag app or go to Vimtag.com and add it from there (you have to set up an account with a username and password first).
If you already have their cameras, then you will need to “add” a new device first, though, before you can do anything else, which I don’t think was the very clear in the instructions. To make things even easier, as it steps you through the process–there’s a scan tag on the device that you can scan with your iPhone (not sure about android) to easily add it to your list of devices on your Vimtag account (or you can input the device code on the bottom of the unit manually) and give it a name (I used “cloud box”).
Once you’ve added the cloud box to your account, then you click on each camera that you want to hook up to the box, choose each camera separately–one at a time–and select the storage device for that camera to be the cloud box (if you were previously using an SD card). Playback of the videos is pretty smooth and easy to figure out.
I’m not sure I’m getting 60 days worth of video storage yet. It looks like the 2 cameras I have store up to about 3-4 days worth of videos, but I have my cameras set to record 30 minutes of video footage at a time once motion is detected, and they’re both set up in busy areas, so there’s a lot of footage for a 24 hour period.
I’m not complaining about that, though, because that’s a lot more than I had with the SD card, I just don’t know if that equates to the 1 TB of storage this device is supposed to have, although I know videos can be notorious space hoggers.
