  • Setting the Time and Date.

  • Setting the Camera’s IP Address to Static.

  • Enabling Motion Detection and choosing areas of the screen for triggering a motion event.

The Surveillance Manager comes with one free license and will apply to adding a single camera.

Additional licenses may be purchased so additional cameras can be added.
