Timeline FAQ

1. How do I add or edit my cameras? 

All the camera controls are now available from the new camera list. To edit a camera, click the dropdown arrow next to the camera name. An edit option will appear. To add a camera, select "Add Camera" from the bottom of the camera list. 

2. How can I watch multiple live streams? 

By default we show multiple cameras at once. You can even move them around and resize them to get the layout you prefer. Save that layout so it becomes your default view.

 

 

3. How do I start a webcam? 

The "Start Webcam" option is now available from the camera list dropdown menu. 


4. Where did Global Motion Detection go? 

There is a new option from the main dropdown menu called "Turn Cameras Off" or "Turn Cameras On". This will disable recording and motion notifications for all cameras. 

 

5. How do I modify my Motion Detection (MD) Area? 

If your camera supports MD area, these controls are now available by selecting the "gear" icon in the top-right corner of the main media player. When you click the gear icon, a "Motion Detection" menu option will appear that will open the MD controls. 

6. Where can I control Pan-Tilt (PT)? 

If your camera supports PT, these controls are available by selecting the "gear" icon in the top-right corner of the main media player. When you click the gear icon, a "Pan-Tilt" menu option will appear that will open the PT controls. This is the same as the Motion Detection Area above.
