The Device Setup screen allows you to add and configure RTSP H264 Cameras for your different Areas. Most modern IP Cameras support this standard but if you are unsure please check your device's technical specifications.
Before you get started you need to have connected your Ops Link to your camera's local network. If you don't have one yet please read through the Ops Link support page and then Submit A Request asking for an Ops Link and providing the shipping address to send it to.
Note that there is a One-Time Cost associated which will be added to your subscription.
You can add new devices using the "Add Device" button; edit already existing devices by clicking the edit button; or permanently delete devices with the delete button. Once cameras have been set up, operators will be able to view them when Handling an Alarm by using the Media Matrix Popout Window.
