Important Notes

Audio must be enabled on the IP camera itself with the G.711 or AAC codec in order to record audio from the camera. Check the manufacturer's manual on how to enable audio on the IP camera.

We recommend consulting local and regional laws in the appropriate areas regarding audio recording. Many areas have laws restricting or prohibiting audio recording in some or all locations.
