Camera groups


This feature allows to create camera groups, with the ability to control each camera of a group at the same time. Grouping cameras can be used when an adjustement must be done on multiple cameras at the same time. For example, to recall a position on PTZ cameras, or to perform a white balance.

Group configuration

Groups are configured directly in the Configuration Web UI. Once all the cameras are configured, groups can be added on the Tags field.

  1. Click on the camera you want to add in a or multiple groups, and set your groups in the Tags field. Groups are defined with the keywork group:, followed by the group name. Each groups must be separated by a comma. For example : group:Group1, group:Group2.
  1. Set the desired group name for each cameras that must be grouped. Each camera can have up to height groups. Group names are case sensitive, can contains only alpha-numeric characters plus "_" and "-".
