Control Panel: Creating and managing labels


Written by NSoft Vision


Labels in Vision VMS provide a robust method for organizing and managing surveillance cameras across multiple locations. They enable users to filter cameras from various locations at one space level, thus boosting the efficiency of the security system.

Understanding Labels in Vision VMS

Labels in Vision VMS offer a streamlined way to group and manage cameras. Creating a label is done through the Control Panel, and it functions at a space-level setting. This implies that once you've created a label and added cameras to it, the label becomes visible to any user group with access to the cameras within that label. For instance, if a label contains four cameras and a user has access to only one of these cameras, the user will still see the label, but with visibility to only one camera.

Finding the Labels section

Creating a new label in Vision VMS is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it (see Figure 1):

  1. Navigate to the Control Paneltune_FILL0_wght300_GRAD0_opsz20.png, located in the bottom left corner of the starting interface.
  2. Open the General tab in the main navigation bar of the Control Panel.
  3. In the General tab, select the Labels tab in the navigation bar.
  4. Click the baseline_add_circle_outline_black_18dp.png sign "+" located in the bottom right corner to create a new label.
