Answer:
Yes, you can use multiple EX2 NAS drives inside your home, each connected via Ethernet to your home network. In my home, I have two sitting side-by-side on a sideboard credenza, each connected via Ethernet cable to a small Ethernet switch. However, I have given each of the devices a static IP address through my home's … see more Yes, you can use multiple EX2 NAS drives inside your home, each connected via Ethernet to your home network. In my home, I have two sitting side-by-side on a sideboard credenza, each connected via Ethernet cable to a small Ethernet switch. However, I have given each of the devices a static IP address through my home's router system, although DHCP works as well. You would then set up each of the drives with a designated naming convention (Drive 1, Drive 2...well, maybe you'll want to be more creative than that). The drives in my home are set up as "His" and "Hers." :-) You'd then set up user access credentials (user name and password) for each device (they need to be different creds), and then use the My Cloud software from WD (free) to "toggle" between the two drives. Sometimes, your computer or device will lose your UACs, so you just have to log back in using MyCloud.com. As long as both devices are set up in the same way, switching between the devices is relatively easy. On a Mac or PC, you can also "map" each drive to your desktop (X: drive, Z: drive, etc.), and access files in a familiar hierarchical file structure. However, you have to be on the same network for these drive designations to connect at log-on. For example, if you have a drive at home, and one at your business office, you may have each mapped with different drive designations. If you boot up at home, you'll likely see "not all network drives are connected" with a "red-x" over the drive's desktop icon for your business NAS drive. That just means you have to revert to the MyCloud software to access the business drive from your home.

I even access any of my two drives at home, and our two drives at my business office, anywhere anytime using the MyCloud software on my notebook computer, tablet or Smartphone. You just have to toggle between the drive names in your app, and the rest is relatively easy. Keep in mind that "opening" a large image file at home using access to your remote business EX2 can be slow since you'll be working on typically slower home networking speeds. I'm fortunate in that my neighborhood is wired with fiber optic cable, so I'm connected at Gigabit speeds. It's not cheap, but it's cost-effective based on my business needs.

Good luck! see less
