Add NVR

Users can assign NVR connected streams to subscribers via the Add NVR option within Camera Setup. This option allows users to add all NVR connected camera streams at once, eliminating the need for manual stream data entry.

This documentation instructs users on how to use this option to add NVR streams. For general information on Camera Setup, see the Camera Setup Introduction documentation.

Selecting Add NVR will display the Add NVR dialog box. Users will define the NVR streams by populating the NVRs identifying information.
