Adding Cameras to Folders

If an Organization has a large number of added cameras, it becomes important to have the means to navigate them easily.

To address this, Watcher provides Folders, which are used to group cameras on some basis, for example, based on their geographical location.

Note. Folders will be introduced in Watcher v19.08.

One folder can include a number of subfolders and cameras. Placing cameras into folders is similar to organizing the storage of documents in the file system.

Creating a folder and adding cameras to it

By default, all cameras in an Organization are added to the root folder.

To create a folder and add cameras to it:

  1. Go to Organization in the Watcher UI
  2. Click Add a folder next to the selected Organization or a subfolder within the Organization
  3. Drag a camera from the list of cameras to the folder.

Another way to add a camera to a folder is by editing the Folder field on the camera settings page. To do so, go to camera settings (Cameras > click the camera in the camera list) and choose Folder where you want to move the camera.

Deleting folders

To delete a folder:

  1. Move all the cameras from the folder you are going to delete. You can move them to another folder or to the root folder of the Organization.
  2. Click Delete next to the folder.
