How to use it?

After access is approved, users can access their footage via the Video Insight Web Viewer app located at

Upon logging in, users will be presented with a list of servers that can be expanded to view a list of cameras. Clicking on a camera name will bring up the live feed in the first panel with subsequent cameras populating the grid from left to right, top to bottom, and eventually starting back at the beginning.

Users can also use the tabs to access recorded footage, export video, and control PTZ cameras; however, these tabs will display an error if the user doesn’t have sufficient permissions to use that feature. Video retention period is 30 days.

How much does it cost?

Access to Video Insight via the web viewer is free.
