    AMBIENTCAMHD3 FTP file naming
    The instructions explicitly state that when you "Enable Set Filename" to on that you can statically set the image filename. Otherwise the image filename contains time, date, and camera Mac address. This doesn't work.
    If you enable setting the filename it saves with the filename you specify prepended on the _date_time.jpg. If you disable, it saves the filename as Schedule_date_time.jpg.
    How can this error be fixed?

    AMBIENTCAM3 goes offline during night
    I recently purchased a AMBIENTCAMHD3, and it works fine all day except nighttime. It seems to go offline at night, typically after 10:00pm, and comes back online about 8:00am. I can’t connect or ping it during this time. I verified that the outlet it is plugged into is not on a timer and is active 24 hours. I received the camera with a defective power supply, which I’ve already had replaced by Ambient Weather. Is there a sleep mode on this camera that puts it offline at night or any configuration settings that need to be changed to keep the camera online 24 hours.

    2.3.6
    Thanks. I regret not getting a Davis. It's absurd to think that, in 2017, there is a software-driven product that can't update its firmware without completely wiping the data. Unreal.

    WS-1001 firmware version 2.4.3
    I had hoped firmware 2.4.3 would resolve a WiFi reconnection I had with a WS-1001 unit. I realise that the model number is now set as WS-1002 and I can't load any previous firmware version anymore - the unit just boots up into 2.4.3. Any help gratefully received..

    2.3.6
    Tried it and it does wipe all console data and all the setup parameters. Have a question into tech support to see if maybe this will work better on the next update or a solution that does not do that. Otherwise you might think about not updating to this new version. I will update this if I get a answer
