Live View / Preview is used to monitor and interact with cameras in real time. Live View can be accessed by selecting Live View at the top of the web interface.


Usage

Click one of the cameras on the left panel to bring up the mainstream image. The mainstream is the recording stream which means higher quality and will require more resources.
