A quick search for my solution brings up old posts from 2011 and doesn't really cover my needs so I'm hoping someone unRAID-savvy has a more modern, better approach.
What I'm after is the ability to set up something (docker ideally) that can record 24/7 from 4 IP cameras (soon to be expanded to 6) on the network to a dedicated WD Purple drive that i have under unassigned devices. I'd like to take this approach so as not to A: cause unnecessary writes and shorten my SSD cache lifespan and B: not to write directly to the array and degrade performance/constantly wear and tear on my NAS & parity drives. I obviously don't need parity for footage that's constantly being overwritten every 7 days or so anyway.
I imagine there's a way to do this but I haven't really ventured into setting something like this up before. I get easily intimidated with things I don't understand. Simple step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated :)
Thanks so much in advance for any help.
