Automatic Activation

Certain recent cameras require going through an activation process before the cameras can be used. We have worked closely with Hikvision and Dahua to fully automate this process for you.

In order to use automatic activation, your cameras must meet these 3 conditions:

  • Presently only Hikvision and Dahua cameras are supported
  • Cameras must be factory reset
  • Cameras must not already be known to your TetherBox
If the camera is already present in the camera list in the timeline, you should delete it before plugging it back to the network.
Please note, some older firmware versions have bugs that prevent automatic setup from working.
