Once your VistaCam SD has been recognized by your Vera system, you can view images directly from your Dashboard. From the main menu, select "Devices" then "Cameras." Your VistaCam SD should show up on your Dashboard as shown below:
To view the footage that you VistaCam is now seeing, simply click the "View" button. You will be taken to a closer look at the live video stream as it's occurring:
Watching from this screen, you can point the camera to where you'd like to see images. As the basic VistaCam SD model does not pan or tilt, you don't have to worry about making more moves in software here...simply point the camera to where you want to see things.
Now that your VistaCam SD is producing images and you're seeing them on the Dashboard, you can start to assign preferences and behaviors to the camera. There are lots of options, but first, you may want to move the camera to another part of your home where a long network cable may not be desirable. You can make the camera work wirelessly through your Wi-Fi router and your Vera system.
This takes just a few steps and only has to happen once -- after that your camera will always be recognized wirelessly. If you'd like to make your VistaCam wireless, let's move to those steps now.
