Camera settings allow you to put your cameras to work monitoring and recording the way you need them to. Use the Camera settings dialogs to accomplish the following camera-related tasks:

· add/find a camera
· reboot a camera (keep settings)
· reset a camera to factory settings
· rename the site name
· change camera name
· enable or disable audio
· enable or disable night vision (700n and 700e cameras only)
· turn off or turn on status LEDs and/or motion LEDs
· change the placement (and text color) of camera details on the video window panel on the Live and Playback screens
· change the video image settings (i.e. brightness, contrast, and orientation)
· remove a camera from the network


You will find the default camera settings work for most conditions. But, adjusting these options for your own applications is easy and straight forward.

Camera-specific dialog screens

Once you name a camera, Commander will create a dialog settings screen just for that camera. On that settings dialog screen, you have to ability to view and edit camera properties, specifically, camera name; video quality; audio; and LED activity.

Advanced options allow the user to modify brightness and contrast, video orientation; and remove a camera. The screen is accessible at Settings > Cameras > [Camera name].
