Common Support Questions

How do I attach a bridge?

Each bridge comes with a unique Attach ID. The Attach ID is used to associate that bridge with an account. In order to add a bridge to an account, enter the Attach ID and a name for the bridge. The bridge will now be listed in the account’s dashboard.

How do I add a camera?

Each bridge scans the local network looking for ONVIF cameras. Cameras that can be added will show up in the “Available Cameras” section of the dashboard. You can click the green plus icon and the camera will be added to your account. The bridge will negotiate a connection and display previews once the camera is streaming. You can then go straight to camera settings.
