Definition of an offline environment
Many video-surveillance systems are in an offline environment - the cameras do not have any kind of access to the public Internet network and/or are in a restricted VPN network environment.
In such environments, applications are installed through the Device Management Tool (DMT) provided by the Security & Safety Things. Please download the latest version from: https://devices.securityandsafetythings.com/tooldownload
