Licensing Surveillance and cameras
A Surveillance license must be registered at the server before you can use the Surveillance feature. In addition, each camera must be licensed before its Surveillance features can be used.
If you do not have enough Surveillance licenses available for the cameras at monitored NetBotz Appliances, a message is displayed at the top of the Surveillance Settings display.
Each Data Center Expert server comes with a one-node Surveillance license that allows you to evaluate the Surveillance features before purchasing additional licenses. The one-node Surveillance license does not expire. When any additional Surveillance license expires, the following will occur:
- Previously recorded clips are preserved but can be viewed only when a surveillance license is registered.
- No new clips can be generated.
- No live camera feeds will be available.
Registering the Surveillance license
Select License Keys, a Server Administration Settings option in the System menu.
Click Add License Key.
In the "Add License Key" display, type in your Surveillance license key, and click OK.
Enabling the license for the cameras
The license can be enabled and disabled (the default condition) for each camera.
You can use this procedure to configure any of the Surveillance Settings for one or more cameras.
Select Surveillance Settings in the Device menu to enable multiple cameras at the same time, or select this same option in the right-click menu for a thumbnail, to enable that camera only.
In the "Surveillance Settings" display, to enable multiple cameras at the same time, select the cameras to be licensed.
Enable the License Camera option at the top of the display.
