Resolution

Failover Monitoring is a feature that allows a single NSM5200 or pool of NSM5200’s to monitor the status of one or several single NSM5200’s, not a pool of NSM’s. If the remote NSM fails, the monitoring NSM will assume responsibility for recording the cameras from the failed recorder. In selecting the NSMs to monitor, consider the maximum bandwidth that can be supported. The feature is only valid for NSM5200 Series version 2.2 and above.
