    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     
    CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., January 10, 2018– EZVIZ Inc., a leading provider of video technology for the smart home, today announced the launch of its first smart entry security solution, the Lookout Smart Door Viewer, and ezGuard, a new addition to the EZVIZ rugged outdoor home security camera line.
     
    Through the EZVIZ app, these latest additions to the EZVIZ ecosystem can integrate with each other as well as existing EZVIZ products, and third-party voice services like Amazon Alexa, to provide an enhanced smart home experience. The ezGuard 24-7 live video monitoring and recording captures activity on the outer perimeter, and the Lookout Smart Door Viewer automatically takes over at the entryway of the home.
     
    EZVIZ’s award-winning Lookout Smart Door Viewer is a two-part smart home door entry video solution that enables an existing peephole in any door to become part of the connected home. Encased in a sleek and durable zinc alloy body, the EZVIZ Lookout Smart Door Viewer includes a high definition professional grade camera lens equipped with infrared adaptive technology for night vision. The lens connects via a secured cable through the peephole, and the action outside can be seen on a touchscreen display on the inside of the door.
     
    The EZVIZ Lookout Smart Door Viewer’s extended remote viewing capability provides the convenience of secure viewing from anywhere through the app versus having to physically walk up to the door. Homeowners can create a gallery of trusted visitors in the app, and the facial recognition technology within the Lookout Smart Door Viewer quickly and accurately identifies who is at the door so the homeowner can act accordingly. An adjustable microphone, loudspeaker and integrated chime also make it a smart video doorbell.
     
    EZVIZ’s other latest offering, the ezGuard, is an outdoor/indoor all-in-one home security system that combines a full HD professional grade camera, smart siren, warning strobe light and onboard recording capability in one compact package. The ezGuard has a proactive defense function that includes a 100 dB siren and lamp to alert the intruder that they’ve been spotted. The ezGuard’s motion detection sends your phone a live video feed of what’s going on outside. 
     
    The ezGuard casing complements any décor, and can be installed outside of the front porch, over a driveway or near a gate. The ezGuard dual outdoor antennas ensure a strong connection to a home’s Wi-Fi signal even at a distance.
     
    Its built-in waterproof microphone and speaker support two-way talk for convenient and secure communication. Homeowners can talk to a person outside even before they get close to the home’s entryway. They can tell a delivery driver to leave the package at the gate, or deter a prowler without putting them in physical proximity.
     
    "EZVIZ brings our customers peace of mind through our intelligent, intuitive and integrable products like the Lookout Smart Door Viewer and the ezGuard because they help them see, capture, share and protect what’s most valuable to them," said Albert Lin, general manager of EZVIZ. 
     
    The EZVIZ Lookout Smart Door Viewer and the ezGuard, will retail for $229.99 and $109.99, respectively. They will be available to the general public through Amazon, North American Retail and the EZVIZ website in the first quarter of 2018. EZVIZ CloudPlay, an optional cloud storage subscription, will also be available for both the Lookout Smart Door Viewer and the ezGuard.
     
    See the EZVIZ Lookout Smart Door Viewer and the ezGuard in the EZVIZ booth 41321 at  Smart Home Marketplace at CES 2018, which runs January 9-12, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

    Today, Netgear announced HomeKit functionality in Arlo Baby Smart HD Monitoring Camera.  Parents with this camera can now easily pair it to HomeKit and ask Siri to show the baby camera.  Just as fun, you can listen in on baby's room as well as view from remote.
     

     
    “HEY SIRI, SHOW ME THE NURSERY”
     
    Netgear is the first smart baby camera to integrate with HomeKit.  You can easily watch and listen to live video stream with 2 way audio from Arlo Baby camera through your iOS  Home app.  Netgear won an innovation award with Arlo Baby Smart HD camera at CES 2017.  It can be found at most big box stores and on Amazon for $231.99. http://amzn.to/2D2fm0b
     
    You will immediately recognize the Baby Smart Cameras as it can be dressed up to look more appealing in a child's room instead of the look of an intruding security camera.  It also has temperature and air quality sensors to give you more insight into your baby's room as well as peace of mine.  You can use motion alerts to stay let you know when baby's nap is over or you can use an audio alert to let you know as well.  It will also send air quality notifications.
    One feature I think differentiates this camera from the others is the "near-invisible" infrared in order to get night vision.  It also has a rechargeable battery so you can move the camera to wherever baby is.

    Meetup 2017 Registration

    By Dave, in Blog,

    Meetup 2017 Registration - $20 This fee guarantees you a spot at Meetup 17 as well as breakfast and lunch. You may have heard the story but one year I didn't charge a small fee and a ton of people showed up for the free food and a ton of others cancelled! So I had way too much leftover BBQ! This is a PayPal transaction. If you would like something different please PM me.  Use this link - PayPal $20
     
    Also, if you are a Patron, https://patreon.com/davidmccabe, at the $5 or higher level, you have a ticket to Meetup 17. You do need to RSVP though. Please use a PM here, email, Patreon PM, etc. Patrons are also invited to a RESET HQ Tour on Friday night. Come on all, sign up as Patrons!!! I purchase food based on your RSVP's and PayPal reservations! Sometimes folks can't make it after reserving, that is fine. The earlier you can reserve your spot the better!
     
    Also, use this thread to secure transportation with each other. If you are flying in, let us know your details and maybe you can hitch a ride with someone. If you want to carpool, drop your location here and maybe someone else close to you can share a ride and some gas. You never know!
     
    I'm currently speaking with area hotels. I'm trying to secure a group rate at the closest, Hyatt Place. There are several events happening this weekend and they seem to be fairly booked but I'll let you know for sure. Lastly, RESET stickers for all! That's why you're coming right? 
     
    If you are new to Meetup I can tell you it is a great time. We have equipment demos and a lot of folks bring their servers, media gear, etc. There is always something new and ALWAYS something to talk about. Remember Meetup 16? I dropped a bombshell on everyone and published the final episode of HSS Podcast and launched RESET Podcast. All in about 30 minutes! I was super emotional during that and it was totally unplanned! Did anyone film that? You never know what surprises I have in store for you!
     
    Most folks try to arrive Friday prior to Meetup. We try to meet at the local Fry's and then go out to eat. Saturday is Meetup and then we converge on the Microsoft Store right after. Usually, 6 PM. Saturday night we try to go out to the local Irish Pub for some fish and chips and then disperse. Sunday morning a group of use meet at a, not so local, Waffle House for some breakfast. (love this part!)
    My area is exploding in growth so you might want to bring your family to shop and explore the area. They are also invited to have lunch at Meetup. If you want to do that let me know and I can arrange that with you. I've found that most spouses don't want to stick around as the geekery tends to get very thick and unbearable for them. Ha ha ha!
    IKEA
    TopGolf
    Portillo's

    Figure 1 – HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 on static mat ready for Windows 10 pro x64 install via iLO4
     
     
     

     
    Figure 2 – This shows my Samsung 840 Pro (This will be my OS drive) set up in a single drive RAID0 in the B140i using SSA
     
     
     
    After manually installing Windows Server 2016 easily on HPE’s ProLiant ML30 Gen9 I was anxious to see if an install of Window 10 Pro would be just as trouble free. It was!
     
    Besides having Hyper-V capabilities, Windows 10 Pro, is being looked on by many as the basis of a low cost Home Server as illustrated in “Building a Windows 10 Home Server – Anniversary Update Edition”. Check out HPE’s Operating System Support Matrices for insights on the many OS’s that the ML30 Gen9 supports. But, what will work goes beyond what’s officially supported by HPE in the “Matrices”. Windows 10 Pro is not listed in the Matrices but Windows Server 2016 is and Server 2016 shares much of the code with Windows 10 Pro as does Server 2012R2 shares with Windows 8.1 pro and Server 2012 shares with Windows 8. In order to manually load Windows 10 Pro I downloaded drivers for Server 2016. The simplest procedure, for me, is to use SPP to update all the ML30 Gen9 firmware first, then use the drivers for the B140i to load Windows 10 Pro, then after Windows 10 Pro is loaded and updated use HPSUM to load all the relevant drivers and software into Windows 10 Pro.
     
    Like Server 2016, Windows 10 Pro has its own generic drivers that will work with the ML30 Gen9’s NIC and Video so the B140i drivers is all that’s needed to get Windows 10 Pro onto the ML30 Gen9!

    I used iLO4 to remote into the ML30 Gen9 and began to install Windows 10 Pro x64 manually (i.e. without using IP) in the following general steps:
     
    Since I had just recently done steps 1-7 not long ago I skipped to 5 then did 7 through 16 below.
    Download Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – the current version is 2016.10.0 (24 Oct 2016) – check also threads about SPP at HSS Forum MS Gen8 Load the SPP ISO in “virtual drives” in remote desktop of iLO4 Boot the ML30 Gen9 – with no drives in the ML30 Gen9 in my case – and let SPP run automatically and update all firmware – See Figure 3 below. Shut down the ML30 Gen9 Next: I removed the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB that I had loaded Server 2016 on (giving me the flexibility to switch OS’s by switching SSD’s in the ML30 Gen9) and loaded another Samsung 840 Pro 256GB into drive 1 of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 Go to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – and download the file cp028631.exe that is the Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller Driver for 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2012/2016 Editions (Since Windows 10 has the same core as Server 2016 I plan to use it for manual installation of Windows 10 64-bit Pro in the ML30 Gen9 – the HPE Drivers & Software site does not have Drivers & Software for non-server OS’s) – the current version is 62.12.0.64 (24 Oct 2016) Extract the files in cp028631.exe and load those into a file folder that I then attach/load in “virtual drives” of remote desktop of iLO4 (during Windows install this will be the folder I browse to so that Windows 10 can pull in the driver and see the Samsung 840 Pro ) Load the Windows 10 Pro x64 ISO in “virtual drives” of remote desktop of iLO4 Boot the ML30 Gen9 During boot go into IP (press F10) and select SSA (Smart Storage Administrator) In SSA I set up the Samsung 840 Pro as a single drive RAID0 to be used as my OS drive – See Figure 2 earlier. Exit SSA & IP and Restart the ML30 Gen9 Proceed with the normal Windows 10 Pro x64 install – During install Windows 10 will ask for location of drivers so it can see the drive(s) – in browse lead it to the location to the file folder of B140i driver(s) in the “virtual drives” C: -- if your OS drive had been previously formatted as MBR you will have to delete that so it can be formatted as GPT. See Video 1 below. After Windows 10 is installed and updated – reattach SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4 In the Windows desktop go to the SPP ISO in File Explorer and Execute the Batch file for HPSUM (i.e. execute: launch_hpsum.bat as Administrator) – I chose “Localhost Guided Update” – Automatic Mode After running HPSUM (and rebooting) the HPE software shown in Figure 4 below was installed. Enjoy!

    All in all Windows 10 Pro was easy to load onto the HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 providing a relatively cheaper platform (compared to Windows Server 2016) for a home lab for setting up and testing applications in Hyper-V for instance.

    After finishing up work on my ML10v2 I wanted to move back to the HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 and begin testing to eventually configure it as a workhorse in my home lab. First I wanted a way to be able to easily add 2.5” drives (from thin SSD’s but including up to the 15mm VelociRaptor’s – what’s a home lab without VelociRaptor’s I always say J). The ML30 Gen 9 (Product No. 830893) has 6 SATA III (6Gb/s) ports with 4 (ports 1 -4) to the LFF hot-swap cage via a mini-SAS cable from the System Board and ports 5 & 6 available as SATA III (6Gb/s) on the System Board all controlled by the embedded B140i on the system board. While I only had 2 extra SATA ports I also wanted some future expandability if I decided to move to an add-on controller card. I felt that the Icy Dock 4-in-1 ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 would best fit my “want’s”.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 2 – Front view of Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1, fits in an external half height 5.25” bay holding 4 x 2.5” SATA III (6Gb/s) SSD’s or HDD’s up to 15mm high with hot swap capability. Each drive bay has LED indication of drive power (green) & activity (amber)
     
     
     

     
    Figure 3– View of Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 with the 4 x 2.5” SATA III (6Gb/s) hot-swap drive trays extended. Note that they are all metal construction with a very solid feel. Also note the anti-vibration design.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 4 – Bottom view of a single 2.5” SATA III (6Gb/s) hot-swap drive tray for the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1. Each drive can be secured with 4 screws (supplied by Icy Dock) making for a very solid configuration.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 5 – Rear view of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1. Each drive has its own SATA III (6 Gb/s) port. The power is supplied via the Molex connector on the lower left and the two 40mm fans are controlled by the on/off switch above the Power Connector. I would certainly want the fans “on” if I fill the ToughArmor with 15mm high VelociRaptors to keep my “Raptors” cool but even if I fill the ToughArmor with SSD’s I plan to have the fans “on” to provide more air circulation inside the ML30 Gen9. Currently, I’m planning to only connect SATA Ports 1 & 2 and save 3 & 4 for future expansion. SATA Ports 1 & 2 will be connected to SATA III (6 Gb/s) Ports 5 & 6 located on the ML30 Gen9 System Board.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 6 – This specification chart I copied from Icy Dock’s web page for the ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 The major item missing from this chart is that each drive tray will accommodate 2.5” drives up to 15mm thick. 15mm is the thickness of a VelociRaptor without its cool pack for 3.5” drive spaces. The “Data Sheet” for the MB994SP-4SB-1 in Figure 7 below does reference the drive height that the drive tray will accommodate.

    Updating Firmware, installing Windows Server 2016, Updating Drivers
     
    After the installation of the ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1 I used iLO4 to remote into my ML30 Gen9 and began to install Windows Server 2016 manually (i.e. without using IP) in the following general steps:


    Download Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – the current version is 2016.10.0 (24 Oct 2016) – check also threads about SPP at HSS Forum MS Gen8
    Load the SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
    Boot the ML30 Gen9 – with no drives in the ML30 Gen9 in my case – and let SPP run automatically and update all firmware
    Shut down the ML30 Gen9
     
     

     
    Figure 9 – After running SPP’s ISO the firmware of the ML30 Gen9 is up to date.
     
     


    Next: I loaded the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB into drive 1 of the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1
    Go to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center – Drivers & Software – and download the file cp028631.exe that is the Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller Driver for 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2012/2016 Editions (This is the same driver I plan to use for a manual installation of Windows 10 64-bit Pro sometime later in the ML30 Gen9) – the current version is 62.12.0.64 (24 Oct 2016)
    Extract the files in cp028631.exe and load those into a file folder that I then attach/load in remote desktop of iLO4 (during Windows install this will be the folder I browse to so that Windows can pull in the driver and see the Samsung 840 Pro)
    Load the Windows Server 2016 ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
    Boot the ML30 Gen9
    During boot go into IP and select SSA (Smart Storage Administrator)
    In SSA I set up the Samsung 840 Pro as a single drive RAID0 to be used as my OS drive
    Exit SSA & IP and Restart the ML30 Gen9
    Proceed with the normal Windows install
    After Windows is installed and updated – reattach SPP ISO in remote desktop of iLO4
    In the Windows desktop go to the SPP ISO in File Explorer and Execute the Batch file for HPSUM – I chose the automatic update
    After running HPSUM (and rebooting) the HPE software shown in Figure 10 below was installed. Enjoy!

    I really like the MB994SP-4SB-1 in the ML30 Gen9 and the installation of Windows Server 2016 while updating the firmware and drivers with SPP and HPSUM was relatively trouble free.

    Figure 1 – The Calhoun Technologies HP 686745-002 “Refurbished” drive-cage in anti-static package with Dell 15” mini SAS cable resting on top with other drive-cages and HPE ProLiant ML10v2 Server
     
     
     
    A year ago when I was planning my move to Ohio I wanted to move my 5TB drives from my HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 to my HPE ProLiant ML10v2 in order to set up a “Mirror” backup of the files on my WHS2011 system using AllWay Sync on my ML10v2. The fastest way to make the move was to unplug the drive-cage in the ML30 Gen9 and plug it into the ML10v2! It fit perfectly and worked flawlessly. It also spoiled me!
     
    After settling in Ohio, finally, I wanted to return the ML30 Gen9’s drive-cage to its rightful place and I began searching for the best low-cost way to add a drive-cage to my ML10v2 that worked like the one in the ML30 Gen9 instead of the stock ML10v2 drive-cage. There’s a great discussion in the HSS Forums documenting forum members search for a similar drive-cage.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 2 – Pages 18 & 19 of HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 Server “Maintenance and Service Guide”; Part Number: 825545-001; December 2015; Edition 1; shows a spare part number 792351-001 for the Four-bay LFF Hot-plug drive backplane assembly which would include the a) Drive backplane and Drive cage – Part 792351-001 is the part I first looked for and found at Calhoun Technologies.
     
     
     
    After reading some great suggestions in the Forums I stumbled upon the 792351-001 in the parts number of the ML30 Gen9 manual and thought it should fit the bill and found a low-cost option at Calhoun Technologies for a 792351-001 “Refurbished”.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 3 – ML30Gen9 drive-cage (also 686745-002 footprint) compared to 792351-001 on bottom – the sharpie markings show how much wider the front of the 792351-001 frame is compared to the 686745-002 and why the front cover of the ML10v2 wouldn’t close on the 792351-001.
     
     
     
    The 792351-001 did work in my ML10v2 but I could not close the front cover on the ML10v2, so I kept looking while also trying to modify the 792351 with my Dremel. I could make it fit finally, but only after a lot of Dremel work and the end result didn’t look good.
     
     
     

     
    Figure 4 – Tag identifying the drive-cage assembly in ML30G9 as: HPE P/N 674790-002 Replace with spare HDD Cage, 4Lff, $u Gen8 Enhanced (686745-002) LITEON (Rev. 15-11-17. The 686745-002 that arrived was identified with a similar tag: HP P/N 674790-002 Replace with spare HDD Cage, 4LFF, 4U Gen8 Enhanced (686745-002) LITEON (Rev.A) 14-03-17.
     
     
     
    On the drive-cage out of the ML30 Gen9 I found the part number 686745-002 which I thought was the part number of the cage alone. (I was wrong about that!) I found it at Calhoun Technologies listed as HP 686745-002 “Refurbished” SPS-HDD cage 4LFF 4U Enhanced. Thinking that it was likely only the drive-cage without a backplane I ordered it since with the 792351-001 I had an extra backplane. I was wrong! The part number referred to the assembly of the drive-cage and backplane.
     
    As the following pictures will show the 686745-002 arrived with a backplane and it appears to be working flawlessly.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!
       

       
      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
