Schedule Time/Day when Cameras are on Alert Status
One of the great benefits of WiLife was that it had the ability to create a schedule for each weekday for when the cameras were "active". That schedule was able to determine when the Cameras were on "alert" for motion. In my case, I could only have my camera on "alert" for portions of the daytime thus eliminating many alerts due to "night animals"

Probably the most useful feature of any surveilance system, is manual recording.
Would love to be able to start/stop recording when you want.

And you are able to use all the space on the card?
I ask because I know Logitech states the max capacity is 8g.
If it works for the entire space of the card, then yes, I will pick up a lager capacity card as well.

Yes...I also run a 32gb in one and 16gb in two others. If you look on the product page, it specifically says expandable to 32gb...not sure where you saw the 8gb reference.

Cant find where I read that now.
Could have mis-read it, because it does say expandable to 32g on the box.
I'll keep looking, and post a pick if I find it, but I think I mis-read it.
Otherwise, this is great news....thnx for the input.

On the playback feature. I would like to see it remember my settings. If I have it set for 5x playback speed, when I return to look at more videos, I would like it to remember what I had set it to and keep it there.

In reference to the ability to control the system from multiple computers I would love to see a dashboard addon for Windows Home Server 2011. This would allow control of the cameras from any PC anywhere in the world as long as they had access to an administrative account. With the introduction of the B700e series being marketed towards small business you would think they would already have this considering the number of small business that are running servers.

Not sure if this has been requested before - but I'd really like to see a way to update the time on my cameras.
There seems to be a problem with the system where the time on cameras can be different than the actual time. For me that happened when I added my fourth camera - the time on e-mail allerts from that one camera where a few hours off. Eventually one of the support threads showed me the chicken-dance that you have to do to fix it (close commander, reset camera with paper clip, delete xml file, restart everything).
Now a couple weeks later all my four cameras seem to have different wrong times and it's not just a couple of minutes it's hours that the times are off. Resetting the time on all of them will be a pita... ...especially since one of them was mounted out of reach.
So I think it would be nice if one of the following features gets implemented in one of the next releases:
a) Sync the time on a regular basis with the commander - this would be the preffered solution.
b) Add an explicit "sync time" feature for every camera in a system - shouldn't be necessary if a) gets implemented, but could still be a good feature if a) should not work properly...
