Recorder Groups

Leverage Recorder Groups to further simplify the management of your system. Recorder Groups can be accessed by selecting Recorder Groups from the Management > Recorders dropdown menu. This page displays a list of recorder groups associated with the Customer Account. Creating recorder groups and assigning users to them is typically more efficient than assigning users to each recorder one at a time.

Add a Recorder or Recorder Group to a User Group here.

2. Click Add New Recorder Group.

3. Enter a Recorder Group Name and a Description.

Recorders and users can be removed by clicking the X next to their names in their respective lists. The General Options tab allows users to adjust the Recorder Group’s Name and Description, as well as Delete the recorder group.

Adding a Recorder directly to a Recorder Group using a Registration Code

You can add a recorder directly to a group by using the Recorder Registration Code associated with a Recorder Group found under Management > Recorders > Recorder Groups. Users require the Manage Recorders and Recorder Groups User Group permission enabled to add recorders to recorder groups. Do so by enabling Manage Recorders and Recorder Groups under Web Services Permissions within the selected User Group permissions. More details here.

1. Under Management > User Management > User Groups, click Edit next to the selected User Group. 

3. Click Recorders / Cameras.

4. Click Add Recorder Group.

5. Check the box next to the recorder group or groups you want to add to the User Group.

When the Manage Recorders and Recorder Groups permission has been enabled and the Recorder Group has been added to the User Group, recorders can be added using the Recorder Registration Code.

1. Hover over the Recorder Registration Code in the Recorder List or Recorder Groups List and click Copy.

2. Navigate to the recorder you want to add to the group, click Web Connect > Settings (gear icon) > Web Services, and paste in the Registration Code.

3. Click Connect.

The Recorder Count in Recorder Groups displays the number of recorders added to the group.

New Recorder Registration Codes can be generated for a Recorder Group. This changes the last four characters of the code.

1. Go to Management > Recorders > Recorder Groups, and click View next to the selected group.

2.  Click Generate New Code under General Options.

NOTE: If a Recorder Registration Code has been used to add recorders to a group, generating a new code will prevent the old code from working. Before changing a code, a reminder will pop up before the new code is confirmed. To change the entire code, see Account Profile.

NOTE: You can customize the table. See Table Functionality for more information.
