    Hi Jeff - anything's possible.

    From your perspective what's the value of having a full-featured web client?

    One of the main things I was thinking about was having it available spur of the moment if needed without having to install something first, and also on Chromebooks/Chromebox/Chromebit devices.

    Jeff - thanks.

    Typically spur-of-the-moment use is to view a specific event - e.g. a shared video clip or an event-based video clip received via email. Would you say that is accurate?

    You are probably right about the spur-of-the-moment. I have a tendency to want to show off the system without having to install the client, but that may be a rare use case.

    The Chromebook "client" is probably more on point with the need for a full featured web client. However I guess it could be a NaCl app or even a more advanced Android client on these newer Chromebooks with the Play Store.

    Not discounting your idea at all. It's a fine idea.

    Chromebook - definitely see a good use case for it.

    Another good use case we've been discussing and working on designing/prepping for is a Cloud Client that gives a user the ability to connect to multiple Systems at the same time. 

    For example an Integrator who provides central monitoring.
    Or a big end-user with hundreds or thousands of sites that operate independently, but with a central control room or location that monitors events across all sites.

    I think even a mid-level web client might be enough even if it didn't give full access to the camera settings and user management. As long as it included things like:

    • multiple camera grid
    • support for saved layouts
    • the timeline
    • access to the notifications
    • smart search
    • calendar timeline picker
