    Can't set time from NTP server. Can't get ddns to work with dyndns.org which is it's default. Can't seem to get iPhone app to connect. Can't rotate images, make sure cameras are upright. Interface is hard to use. Can't connect to web interface from WAN with port 80 forwarded to unit. Documentation is poor. Can't adjust motion senstivity or areas for recording, only for alarm output. Can't find manufacturer website, maybe firware update would help, but can't find one. Smarthome says to contact manufacturer for support, but as near as I can tell they don't have any contact information in any of the docs. Comes with an program you install on your windows machine, but I don't know what it does, not mentioned in docs. Program installed winpcap, which captures network traffic, why ? Seems to record and let you play back from web interface, but that is about it.
