Docking stations allow a way to “dock” caddies to a computer or a network of computers. Hard drives inside caddies store videos recorded by the devices to which they belong. These videos can be accessed by physically connecting the caddy to a computer on which Evidence Manager is installed.
To do this, you can use:
From a docking station, you can perform operations such as:
When a caddy connects to the network, Evidence Manager automatically detects it. Once detected, it appears under the Docking Stations folder. Inside this folder, the hard drive behaves similar to a device. For example, it has stored videos that you can play just like you would play videos from devices.
For the purpose of this chapter, the term “docking station” refers to the caddy in which compatible hard drives can be fitted. Therefore, when you access a “docking station”, you are actually accessing the hard drive of a device.
The Docking Stations feature supports the access of hard drives from Seon devices, as well as MobileView devices.
