Cameras with Security and Safety Things OS are ONVIF enabled devices meaning the camera can be discovered and imported into a VMS as an ONVIF capable device.
Another way of adding the camera into a VMS is with the RTSP stream - this way only the video stream will be sent to the VMS.
Example: adding a camera to Milestone XProtect using ONVIF
- Run the Milestone XProtect management client and expand the Servers list.
- Expand the Recording Servers and right click on the recording server to which you wish to add the camera.
- Select Manual and click Next.
- Make sure that your device's credentials are listed in the credentials list. If not, add them and click Next.
- In the Device Drivers list find the ONVIF drivers and select ONVIF Conformant Device. Click Next.
- On the next page, enter the camera's IP, port 8081 and to speed up the detection - in the drop-down select the ONVIF Conformant Device. Click Next.
- After a successful detection, select the camera features you wish to have in Milestone, add them to the appropriate groups and click Finish.
Example: adding a camera to Genetec Omnicast using RTSP
