Grid View

Jul 05, 2017

The Monitor view is an alternative way to display your live camera streams with multiple viewing configurations. 

Navigating the Grid view

Forward/Backward

You can scroll through the displayed cameras using these options. If all cameras are displayed then this will do nothing.

  • Right arrow = Forward (next cameras)
  • Left arrow = Backward (previous cameras)

Zoom in/out

Zooming in and out will change the number of cameras displayed on the screen. If you zoom in while two cameras are displayed you will then see one camera. 

  • Up arrow = Zoom in
  • Down arrow = Zoom out

 

For example, the following image is zoomed to show two cameras instead of four:

If you were to zoom further in you would see a single camera in this fullscreen configuration:
