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.

As you may all know, in the last days where discovered 2 big security flaws on CPUs named Meltdown and Spectre (https://spectreattack.com/)
I have a HP Microserver N40L and after search the HP support site I did not find any information about how and if HP will release any patch or update to the N40L in order to fix this security issues.
Does anyone has any news or information about how HP is handling this?
Edit: Just found the HP page about this at: http://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html and I don't see any mention to HP microserver N40L
I have the following setup at home (See pic)
I have come back to my server after 1 year. I need some advice as I think I could be doing things better. The main goal is to improve performance in a cost effective way and do things more efficiently.
My main use is rapidly download ISO's and cloning baseline VM's to run new test VM's in my lab with test domain.
If i could get a built in NAS or something on the server that would be good but I have read that FreeNas is best run on bare metal.
I think I want SSD storage for VM's and 2TB SATA to be used as shared storage across the network. Will I need to get 2 SSD's for RAID 0 is this recommended?
I originally purchased only 1 x 2TB SATA as it is just a home lab for testing VM's on and I couldn't afford a bunch of SSD's.
This is setup as 2 logical drives on the Smart Array B120i. I know there are other options in BIOS:
Enable SATA Legacy support
Enable SATA AHCI support
Do I need to enable these instead of B120i what is the difference?
I use virtualbox on my laptop and some VM's if I am away from home or mainly because i don't want the server running all the time due to power consumption?
Am I being silly here is the laptop drawing similar power to the server or is it a lot less?
My Buffalo NAS is very slow on the network and unreliable even though it is supposed to be Gigabit which is why I am now use 2TB Seagate external.
In ESXi the VM options has a selection for SCSI controller:
LSI Logic SAS
LSI Logic Parallel
Do you know what the difference is and which one I need to use for best performance? Is this different for SATA and SSD disks?
