How Do I Check My Camera Firmware Version?
You can check your camera firmware version through multiple methods in OWS.
View camera firmware versions in the Inventory Report under Reports in the OWS Cloud Portal.
If you haven't created an Inventory Report, follow these steps to create new Inventory Reports.
The Cameras tab on the Inventory Report includes the following information:
|Recorder Name||Total Storage||PTZ|
|Camera Name||Total Retention (Days)||Audio|
|Model Name (Generation / Revision)||Event FPS||Analytics|
|Serial Number||Event Bitrate||IP Address|
|Firmware||Event GOP||MAC Address|
|Total Retention (Days)||Continuous Bitrate||Integration ID|
|Event FPS||Recording Mode||Recorder Device ID|
NOTE: Model Name includes the Model Name of the Camera, Generation, and Revision.
NOTE: On the Cameras tab, the Total Storage Available and IP Address columns are locked to prevent users from attempt to sort.
NOTE: Serial Numbers for 3rd party cameras will also display when added over ONVIF in Apex Server Software version 2.7 or above.
NOTE: Use the scroll bar at the bottom of the Inventory Report screen to view more columns.
NOTE: You can customize the Recorder Inventory Report table. See Table Functionality for more information.
View your camera firmware version within the camera UI. To access via OWS, use camera link:
- Click Setup (Gear Icon).
- Under General Configuration, navigate to the Cameras menu.
- Select a camera by clicking on it.
- Click the Live / Recording tab.
- Click Connect Directly to Camera.
For most OpenEye cameras, this would be found under Setup > Basic Info > Version Info in the camera UI.
