Manual Focus

  1. Go to Cameras> Monitor > Cameras. Select a camera from the network list.
  2. Click the Settings > Zoom and Focus tab and select "Switch to manual focus".
  3. A slider will appear to allow for manual focus adjustment. Click and drag to change the focus value or utilize the chevrons for minor adjustments.

Auto Focus

Focus on a specific area

  1. Go to Cameras> Monitor > Cameras. Select a camera from the network list.

Once the region of interest is drawn, the camera will automatically start focusing.
