How to disable menu logout on the DVR and NVR?

Certain Camius device users prefer to remain logged into the menu of their DVR or NVR without re-entering their login credentials unless necessary. To achieve this, you can follow the steps outlined in this guide.

Move the mouse cursor to the bottom left, and click the main menu button: Setup >> System >> General >> Menu Timeouts >> Off >> Apply.

Optionally, you can set a different time for menu log-out as well. This guide applies to Camius NVR and DVR recorders.

You can also set the web session timeout in minutes. The below example is based on the web interface of the Camius 8 channel NVR.

It’s important to note that the web browsers will log you out of the session after some time (even if you set the number of sessions), as this function is implemented by the web browsers to enhance security.

To assist you in managing your login details more conveniently, consider using a password manager such as LastPass or similar services with browser extensions available. These services can help you securely store your login information (such as IP address, username, and password) and provide easy access even after your browser session expires.

You can also use VMS software on your desktop to add the DVR using a P2P ID and access the DVR’s ‘Remote Setting’ within the VMS; follow this guide on how to add the DVR to the software.
