The first tab is Live which displays your cameras live.

Lastly, you can use the XProtect Web Client I setup 8 cameras on XProtect and I’ll start up with Smart Client.

I chose a 1 7 layout were one camera takes up the majority of the screen and 7 are shown as smaller.

Double click on the camera again to return to the previous multi-camera view. You can navigate in the zoomed in window by clicking on the arrows in e-PTZ control in the lower left of the image or move it around in the small window in the lower right.

You can use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out or draw a box of what you want to zoom in on, in my case the car across the street. Clicking on the Playback tab allows you to view the recordings that have been made.

You can use the same layout view as with Live or switch to a different layout view by clicking on .

Across the bottom is a timeline that shows all cameras and the selected camera that has a blue border around it.

For most homes and small businesses, the most popular versions are Go and Essential.

Go’s biggest limitations you can only have 8 cameras and 5 days of video retention.

You first select which cameras you want to see clips for and then click on a thumbnail to start playing it.

You can control the number/size of thumbnails and the time range with the controls at the bottom.

You can position the brackets to cover the time window you wish to export and click on Export to bring up the Export window.
