Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS: Are You Faster Than a 6th Grader?

We wanted to test our installation process, so we got a 6th grader to help us out (There weren’t any 5th graders around, but they could probably do it too.) The video below is sped up, but all of the steps are in there. The only information that is needed is:

  • User ID & Password of the installer
  • The Bridge Attach ID, which is included with the Bridge (in a lot of cases even that isn’t needed by the installer.)
  • ID & Password for the camera, assuming it’s been set to something other than the default.

The short version of what happens is that our “installer” connects the camera & Bridge to a switch, then connects the switch to the Internet (this is a very important step.)

He then proceeds to stop playing his online game, and uses his laptop to configure the Bridge – all he needs to do is enter the Attach ID and the name he wants to use.

The Bridge then searches the network for cameras, and detects one. The installer supplies the ID and password for the camera, and names it.

Once he adds the camera, he tests to make sure its working (another important step) – that’s it.
