How to update ClareVision camera firmware through the NVR virtual host


IMPORTANT: To take advantage of the new video encryption features, users MUST update their ClareVision App if they are using new NVR or camera firmware. If the App is not updated, users will not be able to access their video streaming services.


Chrome Browser Support

Dealers can now access the camera web console using Chrome browsers on PC. This includes setting up and configuring camera settings, viewing playback, and everything else that was possible using the Internet Explorer web browser. Chrome support is not included for Mac at this time.

IMPORTANT: The camera plugin is independent from the NVR plugin. You should download and install both for an optimal browser experience. You can download the camera plugin when accessing a camera through the web console and the NVR plugin can be downloaded when access the NVR web console.
