Managing Billing plans

The first thing to perform is to create billing plans that will be available to your subscribers. Until you create billing plans, your users will not be able to use the camera DVR archive feature, and cameras will only be connected with the ability to view video in real time.

Each tariff is assigned a group of camera settings in Flussonic Watcher. You cannot change any setting manually via Flussonic Watcher, since it is under Billing control. However, if you change the billing plan for the selected camera, the camera settings will be changed to the required ones.

To open the tariff management section, go to the billing plans in the menu. You will see a list of all tariffs added to the system. If you have added a large number of billing plans, you can use the Search box for quick search.
