Copying configuration

Why?

In order to quickly create a new configuration on a new server using the existing configuration. For example, you need to set up surveillance at several sites with the same configuration. So that you would not have to create it each time you restart, you can simply copy and move it to another object. It is very convenient for chain facilities consisting of many similar objects: shops, cafes, offices, etc.

  1. Click on the triangle to the right of the "Settings" menu.
  2. Start the setup wizard.

Restoring configuration

Why?

To use an existing configuration of the previously configured server. For example, in the case of damage to the HDD on the site, surveillance does not need to be re-configured: the configuration is stored in Ivideon cloud, and it can be easily restored. This feature is particularly useful if the object is large and had a complex configuration of several tens or hundreds of cameras (business centers, universities, museums, etc.).

How?
