Just a couple

by Neurobit » Mon Dec 07, 2020 8:52 pm

1. The ability to clone camera settings. Not all of them, like masks and IP address (of course), but config settings like codec, quality, frame rate, etc, would be great so we don’t have to do that manually. I have dozens of cameras and it can be tedious when I need to change a setting that it’s the same on all of them.

2. The ability to export and import configs to quickly restore a system after a crash or setting up a new a new machine. As far as I can tell this is not a feature currently available, unless I missed it?

Thanks.

For #2, there isn't quite an export/import feature, but if you copy and restore everything under "C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Sighthound Video\", you'll get the equivalent.

I would love to see #1 as well. There are several minor tweaks I would love to make, but do not want to go through 10 cameras. If I could batch change a specific setting, that would be amazing.

Thanks.
Good to know on the config. I’ll see where those are on the Mac.

Both of these are great ideas. I have wanted the "clone camera" feature for some time now; all of my cameras are from Axis and I end up just repeating things every time I add a new one.

I've put them on my list of future features.

Thank you.
