NetBotz Camera POD 160A
Newer NetBotz Camera Pods (NBPD0160A) are running a hardware revision that are not compatible with older NetBotz firmware. This causes the camera to appear failed and not register on the main NetBotz unit.
Updating the NetBotz appliance to firmware version 4.6.2 or later will correct the problem. If you have upgraded or are already running 4.6.2 or later and are still experiencing difficulties, contact technical support.
Please note that this could also happen on a NetBotz 355A or 455A with the on-board camera with firmware prior to 4.6.2..
