7.1 Advanced system settings

You can access Surveillance Center’s advanced settings by selecting [Settings] [Advanced Settings].

  • You can also configure whether or not you want to set a storage quota *2 and how the system will respond when maximum storage capacity is reached.
  • Surveillance Center’s RTSP Server streams live video and audio content from IP cameras over the Internet via the industry-standard RTSP protocol.
  • You can click the button below to generate Surveillance logs for diagnosis.


Note:
