So, I made up my mind and invested into this card: https://www.czc.cz/sandisk-micro-sdhc-e ... 30/produkt

Changed current A-DATA card in Presence and I can tell you I immediately noticed a REMARKABLE improvement:
1) Quality of Live stream is BETTER and it starts to remind FULL HD (is sd card used as a in between storage) ?
2) Speed of playlist from history is faster


Let us hope it will get even better with v86 (which I am still waiting for).

Did also replace my SD card today and noticed a few improvements.

1. The quality of the live video seems a bit better....but no wow factor ;)
2. Live video no longer pauses/stutters.
3. The download time of a video clip is slightly reduced.
4. In general it feels like the camera is doing it's tasks faster.


BTW it's this card:

UPDATE:

I can also report that after SD card replacement and fw87 update, that the lag duration time in live monitoring mode have decreased. It's now 7-8sec which is quite decent :)

I asked the following to Netatmo:
Can you please advise if there are any special instructions for replacing the SD card. All that I have done is open up the bottom of the unit and insert a replacement card. But I noticed that the original card has some grease on it. Does something need to be greased to continue working properly?

They replied:
The way you replaced the SD card is fine, the grease is normal and you don't have to add more than there already is.

My brand new SD card recently failed again after just 2 weeks use!
Hi I have had my camera for around 4 days and we had heavy rain over the weekend. I had the following message

Netatmo defective SD Card
Netatmo mointoring susspended

When I removed the card it was wet and the sd card gold strips looked water damaged (one of them looked burnt black)

I purchased a new 16GB card today, tried to dry the slot out as much as possible... but I have just got the same message with the new card after it has been working for around 5 hours

Netatmo defective SD Card
Netatmo monitoring suspended

So I have just pulled out the new card to see that has also got wet in todays rain.

Is it me or should this camera have better waterproofing for the SD card.

Im not sure how to completely dry it and protect it from future rain? Very frustrated as the camera wont even ftp without a crd in it!!

Hi

Agree, the SD card slot design is just stupid. Not waterproof at all! It's the nemesis for Netatmo, nothing is weatherproof :D

When I replaced my card I'd sealed the slot and card with black 3M electrical tape ;)

Now I have gone and done it!!! The piece of cloth I used to put into the sd slot got caught around the metal pins and has bent them.. How stupid do I feel. Now no SD card is even recognised.

Off to bed and try to sort my expensive mess out tomorrow :(

Now you've gone and really done it - taking it apart allowed the Artificial Intelligence to escape!!
