Camera Names

Submitted by
Status: New Idea

I would like to see the NVR overridden name on the ios APP for when motion is detected, currently you get the name of the camera as stored on the camera.


Would be good to see the Override Message version instead.


I have the camera names ambiguously set so they are not obvious cameras on the network and use the override to set them to something more meaningful, FRONT_C1/C2 , REAR_C1/C2 etc on the NVR

Is there no way to disable network discovery on the camera itself?  Maybe SSH to the device?  Also, why obfiscate the device on the network via hostname?  Why not put all cameras on a VLAN not accessible to the entire network (assuming everyone is working off of 1 VLAN)?  Just curious...

I'm guessing not on the discovery Currently they are on a separate network in their own firewall zone with rules for access from certain designated devices, doesn't stop someone from unscrewing a camera and jacking into the network cable from the back though, too paranoid?
