There are four different User roles in Orchid Core VMS, each with a different level of access:
- Live Viewer: A Live Viewer is only able to view live video.
- Viewer: A Viewer is able to view live and recorded video.
- Manager: A Manager can view live and recorded video, export video, view System Reports, and control PTZ Players. (The Manager is not able to create or manage users or cameras.)
- Administrator: An Administrator is able to do everything within Orchid Core VMS, including activating Orchid Core VMS, adding new users and cameras, resetting passwords, and viewing System Reports.
User roles are set when you create new users, however, an Administrator may change the role of an existing user by clicking the Edit pencil icon. Find out more about editing users later in this section.
