Tip 1: Adjust the video quality and resolution
Depending on your network speed and data usage, you may want to adjust the video quality and resolution of your cameras. To do this, you can tap the HD icon at the bottom right corner of the live view or playback screen. You can choose from different options, such as Fluent, Clear, or Custom. Fluent mode will use less data and bandwidth, but the video quality will be lower. Clear mode will use more data and bandwidth, but the video quality will be higher. Custom mode will allow you to set your own parameters, such as bitrate, frame rate, and resolution.
Tip 2: Use the PTZ control and digital zoom functions
If you have PTZ cameras (pan-tilt-zoom cameras) that can move and zoom in or out, you can use the PTZ control function of Guarding Vision to operate them remotely. To do this, you can tap the PTZ icon at the bottom left corner of the live view screen. You can use the directional buttons to move the camera up, down, left, or right. You can also use the zoom buttons to zoom in or out. You can also set preset points and patrols for your PTZ cameras, which are predefined positions and routes that the camera can move to automatically.
If you don't have PTZ cameras, but you still want to zoom in on a specific area of the video, you can use the digital zoom function of Guarding Vision. To do this, you can pinch your fingers on the screen to zoom in or out. You can also double-tap the screen to zoom in or out quickly.
Tip 3: Enable the audio and talkback features
If your cameras have built-in microphones and speakers, or if they are connected to external audio devices, you can use the audio and talkback features of Guarding Vision to listen and talk through them remotely. To do this, you can tap the speaker icon at the bottom center of the live view screen. You can then hear what's going on around your cameras. If you want to talk back, you can tap and hold the microphone icon next to the speaker icon. You can then speak into your phone and your voice will be transmitted to your cameras.
Tip 4: Share your devices with others
If you want to share your devices with other people, such as your family members or employees, you can use the share function of Guarding Vision. To do this, you need to go to the Device Management section of the app and tap Share Device. Then, you can enter the email address of the person that you want to share with and select which devices and channels that you want to share. The person will receive an invitation email and they will need to download Guarding Vision and create an account to accept it. Once they accept it, they will be able to view your devices on their app.
