To access the menus to configure DVR and LiveView, first navigate to the VIEW page, select the “configure” icon    and select either “Configure DVR” or “Configure LiveView

Configure DVR




This menu choice allows you to configure the Digital Video Recorder (DVR) options. The configure DVR dialog will allow you to Enable DVR.

To enable DVR, select the "Enable DVR" box at the top left corner. 

When enabled, the camera will record video clips or images as specified in this configuration.

Start date/stop date, and DVR schedule (hours/day and days/week) can be scheduled in this dialog.

There can be multiple DVR schedules that you may configure and enable.  Click the schedule drop-down to pick which schedule you would like to update.
Note: The Start and Stop dates are the same for all of your schedules.  Schedules may not overlap.

DVR functions work independently, and in parallel with any other imaging or video streaming functions.


Configure LiveView

The LiveView imaging mode captures still images that are uploaded quickly, as they are taken. This allows you to have near real-time eyes on the project, without using the amount of cellular data required by continuous video streaming. It is great for keeping an eye on the project throughout the day, to see vehicles, people, and material movement, and detailed project progress.

LiveView operates independently of other functions such as DVR, or streaming.

 


In the Configure LiveView dialog,  you set the hours/days, and resolution/frequency that you want LiveView to run, and the camera will then follow that schedule.

There is the option to configure multiple schedules by clicking the schedule dropdown box and selecting the options you would like for that schedule.  Note: Schedules may not overlap.  The start and stop dates will be the same for all of the LiveView schedules.


LiveView images will be captured and uploaded as they are taken, even if you are not logged in or viewing the View screen. This allows you to use LiveView as a sort of “recorder” so that images are uploaded every couple minutes, and stored for 7 days. You can login anytime, and browse backward through LiveView images to get a minute-by-minute view of the project.

LiveView images can be exported out of the system like any other images.

LiveView can also be enabled for display on the Public Access URL. Go to “Configure Camera” and then to Configure Public Access and then enable “Display LiveView”.
