In most cases, you'll want to install your camera with normal orientation so that the video stream in Command appears as you'd expect. Some install locations may benefit from being installed in a non-standard orientation to maximize the field of view.

For example, a camera may be installed at 90 degrees to capture a full view of a long hallway or stairwell.

In these cases, you'll want to rotate the orientation of your camera in Command.

Configuration Steps

1. Select the desired camera

2. Select the Settings tab

3. Select the Device tab

4. Under Orientation click Change and select the desired option

5. Select the desired orientation and select Save.
