    Every update you provide makes the cameras not work and I cannot see my business, this is so unreliable and irresponsible.

    I have installed a lot of DVRs over the years and DW is the one I recommend. I own one myself and I support their product. If you are not seeing the SAVE button when adding a device, touch your phones MENU button.
