Swapping Cameras


Version 2.0


1. Ensure the camera is set up correctly (with an ONVIF profile if necessary). Otherwise the camera will not show in Available Cameras.

If ONVIF needs to be set up within the camera, ensure the ONVIF user is set to 'administrator' and the password only contains upper/lower case letters and numbers with no special characters (unless required). ONVIF user credentials will be the credentials you enter into the Eagle Eye system instead of the main camera login credentials.
