|Thema: Users and passwords|
The Users and Passwords dialog allows managing the user names and passwords for granting access to the camera.
Access rights are managed in three levels, each having individual rights.
Users of the admin level have unlimited access rights. For example, only users of this level can install software updates on the camera or save a changed configuration to permanent storage.
The admin user (password is meinsm) is the factory-preset administrator of the camera.
It is strongly recommended to change the default password! Make sure there is at least one user of the admin level.
Users of the user level can change image and event settings.|
It is not necessary to protect this access level with a password.
|guest||Users of the guest group may only view the live image of the guest page.|
Each access level automatically has all the rights of its subordinate levels. An administrator also can execute all functions of the user and guest levels. A member of the user group also can execute the functions of the guest level.
As soon as one user has been registered at the user or the guest level, respectively, access to the corresponding pages requires a user name and password.
|Note:||Make sure that you store your password information in a secure place. Special care should be taken to retain the password of at least one user at the admin level. Without the password, administrative access to the camera is not possible any more and there is no possibility to circumvent the password. It is likewise impossible to retrieve the password from a permanently saved configuration.|
If the administrator password is no longer available, you will have to send the camera back to MOBOTIX for a factory reset!
Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the camera is rebooted.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
