Adding Cameras to Watcher by Using Agent
This section describes how to add cameras to the Watcher, if Agent is used (it is installed on cameras or on a device in the same local network with cameras).
If Agent is installed on a camera, it adds itself and the camera to Watcher. If Agent is installed on a device in a local network with cameras, then you will need to add the cameras manually.
If you don't use Agent, you will need to add cameras manually.
On this page:
If Agent is installed on a camera, the camera will be added to Watcher automatically.
You have installed Agent on a Raspberry Pi device or a router. Now you can connect cameras to a external Watcher server in the Internet with the help of this Agent.
To add cameras to Watcher by using Agent in the same local network with cameras:
Look at and remember its identifier
agentID. The identifier can be found in either of the ways:
