Organizing the Device Panel

The Device Panel in FortiCentral provides the ability to organize your cameras and added content in whatever fashion best suits your needs. For example, you could add tags to a camera to better organize and identify your cameras.

Tags are part of the location string for a camera. To view a camera’s tag, hover your mouse over a selected camera.

To add tags to a camera

Log on to the FortiRecorder web UI.

Go to Camera > Configuration > Camera.

Enter a name in the Location textbox.

Add as many tags as you desire, following each one with a comma, in the same Location textbox.

The first entry in the location field (1st floor) is the location. All entries after the location that are separated by a comma are tags.

The Device Panel settings button provides the ability to group your cameras by recorder, device type, and tag. With tags you can search for a specific camera by entering the camera’s name or tag in the Search textbox. You can also group your cameras by tags. For example, you could have all of the cameras on each floor grouped for easier and quicker monitoring.
