When viewing a live feed, you can toggle the Video Quality. You can achieve shorter delay off of real time and lower bandwidth usage by viewing SD footage. HD has better image quality, but uses more bandwidth and has more delay off of real time 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

  • On the Devices or Home page click on any camera you would like to view

  • In the bottom left of the live stream click on Playback Quality
