The Devices section is where new devices are added to be connected with the SKAARHOJ panels. There are two ways a device can be added, Auto Discover and Manually.


Manually Added

If a device must be added manually, it’s easy to look it up in the list of supported models. Following a manual choice of device, the user will have to enter the IP address and other possible device detail information. See the Device Details section for set up. 


Pressing SHIFT + the green Add Device button will allow for multiple device selection.

Adding Based on Core

When the Home screen is in Advanced mode, it becomes possible to add device pre-filtered based on the device core. Both methods of adding the device (discovered and manually) are still available.



Device Details

Devices are presented in a nice overview with their connectivity status and IP address shown clearly.


Clicking on a device’s name in the Devices section will open up the details. Here the active status, IP address, Username and Password, Device Name, DeviceID, ModelID, and Description can be adjusted. (Details shown here are for a Canon CR-N500 PTZ camera, available detail options are device specific) . The device name and description are customizable. The device name will be the default name used by any camera selector for a display name. The status must be Active to control the device. The Ping button will open the ping tool to check the connectivity, stability, and latency on the connection to the device.  



Device Core Details

Devices will be shown broken down into different groups based on their associated device core. Device cores are auto loaded onto the blue pill when a new core is selected via a device.

Clicking on the Device core  name associated with the devices will open additional details.
