This article outlines the different camera permission levels within Dashboard, how to create camera only privileges and apply it to a user, as well as describes options available to these users.
The following instructions outline how to create a Camera-only privilege role, and assign it to a specific Network Administrator:
For camera only networks, navigate to Cameras > Configure > General. For combined networks, navigate Network-wide > Configure > Alerts and Administration.
Navigate to the Network Administration > Camera-only privileges section.
When a Network Admin with Camera-only privileges logs into Dashboard, their view is restricted in terms of both devices and functionality. It simplifies the menu for users to quickly and easily access the cameras. Also, camera-only admins are unable to make changes to cameras as they are given read-only rights. These changes include image settings such as focus, zoom, and aperture as well as viewing network tab of the camera.
One common use case for the camera-only admin feature is to allow a receptionist to view live footage only of the building atrium. This is due to the receptionist only needing to view who is currently in the atrium before allowing them access to the building. In this scenario, camera-only admin settings for the receptionists email would be view live footage and cameras tagged "Atrium".
