Making JUST ONE of a set of cameras publicly available

Post by forrestholleman » Sat Feb 22, 2020 7:20 pm

Is it possible in BI to allow one of your cameras to be viewable by the public, safely, without giving access to other cameras or compromising one's network security?

I've got a dozen cameras at one location - and one of them is a decent PTZ camera pointing out at the coast. The idea is to allow others (friends, neighbors, etc.) to view it, but restrict access to view-only and only on that one camera.

Is this possible? Could it be done with other 3rd-party software?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

  • Create a camera group that contains only that camera.
  • Create a user account for people to use (make sure it's not an Admin-level account).
  • Grant access for that user account to that camera group.
That should do what you want, unless I misunderstand.
