The Control Display is a unique feature in Vision VMS that allows users to create a dedicated display for a single camera. This display generates a URL that can be shared with security personnel for monitoring. The control display can be customized with a name, camera selection, and specified working hoursbaseline_schedule_black_24dp.png.
