Camera Preferences

The Camera Preferences tab allows you to add, remove, or configure cameras connected to this Desktop Client. Cameras that have already been automatically discovered are displayed here.

SAFR normally auto-detects all integrated (built-in) cameras, USB-connected cameras, and IP (internet protocol) cameras that support the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) protocol as long as they are present on the same network to which the Desktop Client is connected. For more about ONVIF and the ONVIF specification, see the ONVIF home page.
