How to configure the Recording Schedule and Some Basic Setting in Surveillance client.Updated a year ago

Purpose of The Guide

This guide will show you how to access some of the settings and how to set up recording schedules and basic settings of the recorder.


Before You Begin

Your Gamut device will need to be turned on and connected to your internet router. You will need to use a TV to set up the recorder for the first time and follow the quick start guide to do so. After the initial setup, a TV or monitor is not necessary when accessing the recorder via a network connection.


If you are using a recorder and cameras, make sure that the cameras are connected and working.


If you are using a Wi-Fi bridge system with your camera, make sure that the bridges are turned on, wired correctly, and communicating before you begin.

You will need to also have the NVR/DVR added to the surveillance client.

The guide can be found Here


Let’s Get Started

To access the settings of the recorder/camera itself, go to the Control Panel, click on Group Device, then click on the spanner icon next to your recorder.

You will be able to find all of your settings within the panel above.

To schedule, recording click Record -> Schedule, you can either have motion and continuous record or just one of them. If you select the recording option you want to use and then click on the day and drag across the time period you want it to record.

This will then create a bar as you can see in the image below which you will want to do for each day.


Once you have set the recording schedule you need to click copy and then select all other channels on the recorder, if you want them to have the same schedule, if not you can change the channel from IP CH1 to IP CH2.

Masking Areas out in Motion Settings.

If you getting false alarms and want to mask certain areas if you go into Display -> Motion Detection.

(You can mask certain areas out)

The red squares are where the camera is looking to detect motion, you can mask certain areas to stop false triggering by clicking in boxes to make it clear, as I have shown in an example below.

Please make sure enable is ticked and you click save to save the settings.

Sensitive is the sensitivity of the motion, the lower the sensitivity the less likely it going to trigger off, high is more likely to trigger motion off, try adjusting the activity, if you were getting false alarms, you can adjust the sensitivity to suit your needs.

Changing Resolution and FPS on cameras.

This can be found in Record - Main Stream.

Channel - Select which camera.

Resolution - Resolution of the camera.

FPS -  Frames Per Seconds

Video Code Type - either H.246 or H.265.

Date and Time.

System -> General, all date and time and NTP services can be found here.

Push Notifications On When Motion Is Triggered.

To change these settings go to Alarm -> Motion. If you want your recorder to beep when motion is detected you can turn the buzzer on.

If you have any alarm system like a PIR sensor that you have linked to the recorder then you want to enable this option.

In the example above we have IP CH2 (camera 2) selected, you want to tick the record channel option and tick the number 2 box to have this record for channel 2. The post-record option is how long the camera will record after the motion has finished.

Changing Password for Recorder.
