VIVOTEK's Shepherd, embedded with device management functions, can easily set up multiple cameras at once. The software automatically brings up a list of all VIVOTEK devices that are connected on the network and user can manually group the cameras to apply pre-configured settings. The Shepherd supports various powerful functions, including group setting management, IP address assignment, remote reboot/restore, import/export camera settings, firmware and VADP package upgrade, exporting the server status report to track the issue. It greatly benefits system integrators and installers who often have projects that need to set up multiple cameras with the same settings at once.
Whenever Shepherd initiates, it will automatically search the LAN for VIVOTEK devices and list them all.
Batch setup on Shepherd will largely decrease tedious repeat work. Simply create a template configuration file, and apply it to hundreds, or even thousands, of cameras at one time.
Choose DHCP, fixed IP, or assign an IP range for multiple VIVOTEK cameras.
Need to upgrade camera firmware? Or update a camera license? Or upload VADP package for more advanced camera functions? Shepherd also supports these functions through batch update.
Shepherd supports remotely exporting camera logs and configuration files for whenever you need to check an issue, or wish to request VIVOTEK technical support.
