16-Channel Secondary Internal Drive?
I asked this same question in a previous post, but thought it could use its own post for those searching on just this subject.
I have purchased and secondary 3TB internal HDD for my 16-channel Reolink NVR, however before opening up the unit and discovering that I am missing something, can anyone who has done it already tell me if I need any additional cables, screws, power connectors, etc? I did not want to unplug everything, open up the unit, and discover I needed something extra to make it work.
Is having just the HDD enough to move forward, or do I need to order anything else to connect a secondary internal drive?
I did a quick opening of the 16-channel NVR to see what is needed to install an additional 3tb (surveillance) drive. I bought the recommended drive from a previous post, however it looks like their is only a single drive cable going to the primary drive. There is an extra power cable so I think this would work for power. There is no mounting plate like what the primary drive is mounted to from the factory install. I did some quick looking on Amazon and found a kit like the following link; anyone else have any ideas or solutions allowing me to mount and connect an internal secondary drive? Does Reolink sell a kit to allow me to add the second drive having all the components?
Just replying to see if I can try again for any recommendation on adding a secondary internal HD to my NVR. Anyone done this already of have advice. I have bought the drive, but it looks like there is no mount, power, interface cable inside, etc. Just looking for some assistance or direction.
Sorry did not reply earlier. We found and replied to your earlier post regarding the same question #16257.
Please check if you find the connection ports in your 16-channel NVR according to the pictures.
For internal extra HDD installation in 16-channel NVR, here are some pictures to show you:
Position 1 is where you put the extra HDD inside the NVR.
We also provide 4 screws in the box for the HDD installation, please make sure screws are tightened, otherwise, HDD may cannot be initialed or work properly if it is loose.
