When viewing a live feed, you can toggle the video quality. SD provides a shorter delay and uses less bandwidth. HD has better image quality, but uses more bandwidth and has a greater delay than SD. It is also possible to select the default video quality for all cameras in your organization.

Selecting the Video Quality on a camera

  1. Select the camera you would like to view

  2. In the bottom left of the live stream select the SD/HD menu

  3. Switch between SD and HD as desired
