Option 1: If your device is in the same LAN (Local Area Network)

Click on the Auto Search tab and search for devices if you are in the same LAN (Local Area Network), as shown in Picture 2. Select the device, click Add, and insert the device’s username and password.

Navigate to the Home tab >> Main View, and expand ‘root’ on the left sidebar. 

Click and drag your device into any blank rectangle, which should display all the available channels. 

Option 2: If you are accessing the device remotely

If you are accessing the VMS / VMS Pro remotely (not in the same LAN), then navigate to the Home tab >> Device Management >> All Equipment. If devices were added successfully, they would be displayed here.

To add a new device remotely, click the icon + on the right top (Picture 3), which will open the Add Device‘ dialog

How to control your Camius device settings remotely

Once you have added the NVR to the VMS pro software, you can access it remotely from anywhere. Just make sure to add it using the P2P ID and not the local IP address, as shown in the following screenshots. Basically, you are accessing the NVR’s remote settings from the VMS software without a browser.
Once you are in Remote Setting, you can manage the NVR and control its settings.
