Live Viewer Patrols

Previous Next  Print this Topic

After you create Live View layouts, you can enhance your video surveillance ability by creating patrols. A patrol is a group of layouts, where each layout in a patrol is displayed in the Live Viewer for a set amount of time before the next layout is displayed.

You can create, edit, rename, or delete patrols from the Live Viewer View menu, or by right-clicking the Patrols folder under the Entire Network area in the top right portion of the control panel. Edit a patrol to change names, layout sequence, or dwell time.

To create a patrol

1.Create a few Live Viewer layouts.
2.From the View menu, select Create Patrol. The Create Patrol window appears.
