Adding Third Party Cameras
Third party cameras may require installing a manufacturer camera discovery tool on a separate PC. Once the camera discovery tool is installed, follow the steps for adding a camera with a static IP address or using DHCP as outlined above. On Windows, some third-party camera manufacturer discovery tools are located in C:\Server\3rd Party Software.
Adding Cameras Not Natively Supported
Single and multisensor cameras that are not natively supported must be added using the RTSP stream(s) of the camera. Consult the camera manual for more detailed information regarding RTSP streams. Once the URL for the RTSP stream(s) of the camera has been identified, follow the steps in the Adding Cameras Manually, selecting the RTSP protocol.
