Registering Other Cameras

The Register Other Cameras dialog allows defining the cameras you would like to use in the Multiwatcher screen. You can enter the cameras either manually or automatically (using Zeroconf/Bonjour).

To open the configuration dialog, click on the Manage Cameras link in the configuration page of the Multiwatcher.

Manually Entering Cameras

Enter one of the following pieces of information for the camera:

If the camera's web server uses a port other than 80, add the corresponding port. Enter the port behind the actual IP address or name of the camera followed by a colon (e.g. 192.168.1.233:23335 or mycam.mynet.net:8080).

If you would like to use a camera that is password-protected, enter the corresponding credentials as well. Make sure that you enter the proper User Name and Password.

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the camera is rebooted. If you have added cameras or changed existing entries, the camera will automatically start a connection test, which will check if the cameras can be reached.

Automatically Searching Cameras

Note: The automatic camera search feature uses the Zeroconf/Bonjour technology. Make sure that Zeroconf has been activated on all other cameras in the Ethernet Interface dialog so that the cameras can actually be found.

Click on Scan network to start the camera search. The search takes about five seconds.

If new camera are found on the network, the camera enters their Zeroconf names in this dialog. New entries are highlighted in yellow. Click on the Set button to enter the defined cameras and to save them until the camera is rebooted. The camera will automatically start a connection test, which will check if the cameras can be reached.

If the camera finds no cameras or only cameras that are already listed, a popup window will inform you of this fact.

Deleting Entries

To delete one or more entries, activate the Remove option and confirm your selection by clicking on the Set button.

Manual Connection Test for All Cameras

New or changed entries will be tested automatically. To test the connection to all cameras, activate the Test all entries option and click on Set.

The connection test will check if it can reach all other cameras listed in this dialog. When doing so, this camera will get and display the camera information, a preview image and information on the last alarm.

If errors occur, you should make the appropriate changes. The error message will give you a hint, which column of the entry requires corrections.


Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Factory button to load the factory defaults for this dialog (this button may not be present in all dialogs).

Click on the Restore button to undo your most recent changes that have not been stored in the camera permanently.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
