Before you head to site to install your Xanview system, it's important to make sure you have everything required to get your system up and running. This simple checklist will help you get the best results for you and your customers every time:
Whether you're installing a new or connecting to an existing system, you'll need:
Usernames and Passwords
We cannot connect to Cameras, DVRs/NVRs, Alarms, etc without the correct credentails, please ensure you have access to them.
Internet Connection (on site)
Broadband, WiFi or 4G routers will all work. The system operates without Internet but Internet is required for provisioning.
Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone
New IP Cameras
If you're installing with new IP cameras, you'll need:
Compatible IP Cameras
Suitable PoE switch(es) & Cabling
Note: Ensure enough ports are available to support your cameras, a connection to the TimeBox, the LAN and or a router.
If you're connecting to an existing NVR/DVR, you'll need:
A Compatible NVR/DVR
The unit will need to support ONVIF and/or be able to output an RTSP or HTTP stream. If unsure, check compatibility with a member of Xanview staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
Spare Network Port on the Same LAN as the NVR/DVR
Note: the TimeBox does not connect directly to any port on the NVR/DVR itself but needs its own port on a switch on the LAN).
Manufacturer / Model Names / Supplier Contact Details
Note: If for any reason your system cannot provide a valid stream, it may still be possible to contact the supplier or manufacturer to request an updated firmware.
