|This is the Recover Camera icon.|
If someone edits camera settings (including the IP address) directly at the camera, Orchid Core VMS may be unaware of the new settings and may lose its connection with the camera. Orchid Core VMS helps fix this problem with the Recover Camera feature. This feature may also be used to enable the camera-based motion detection option on certain cameras (by connecting to the metadata capabilities of the camera). Please refer to the Edit Camera Stream Settings for more details about camera-based motion detection.
- To recover a camera, click the name of the camera you want to recover from the list of registered cameras on the Camera Configuration screen.
- Press the Recover Camera button at the bottom of the expanded camera entry. The Connection Settings screen will appear.
- To refresh the camera settings, simply enter the credentials for the camera, then press the Recover Camera button. (The software will pull the camera settings directly from the camera.)
- To reconnect with the camera, replace the camera’s IP address (with the new one) in the camera’s URL field. Then enter the credentials for the camera and press the Recover Camera button. (The software will reconnect with the camera at its new IP address, and will also pull the camera settings from the camera.)
