Setting Up Your Access
When you get access to a particular set of cameras on campus, you will need to first set up your view. To do this, go to the Setup Tab.
The first section on the left hand side has a list of the areas you have access to. Highlight the particular area by clicking the “New Folder” icon
Once you do this, new options become available. You can:
- Create a New View
- Rename the Folder
- Delete the Folder
Click the “Create New View” button.
You will now need to choose the layout for your cameras. You have the option of using the following aspect ratios:
- 4:3 Portrait
- 16:9 Portrait
If you have a square computer monitor, the 4:3 ratio will work best. If your monitor is more rectangular, the 16:9 ratio is for you.
Select the layout that works best for you. In this example, we will select a 16:9 aspect ratio with a 1x3 view.
Once you select the view you want you will see placeholders in the larger area of the screen (as seen below).
Now you can drag and drop cameras onto your screen:
- Go to the System Overview section underneath the View section
- Select the Cameras folder
- Find the area/building folder
- Drag and drop the individual cameras to the placeholders
- Once you do this, you are all set up!
You can now go to the Live Tab and see what is happening on your cameras.
Be sure to select the folder and the view you set up earlier.
