Initial System Configuration

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When Wisenet WAVE is installed, some initial configuration is required. A new installation will be displayed as "New Server" on the Welcome Screen. Remember that a sufficient number of licenses must be obtained and activated (see “Wisenet WAVE Licenses”).

Click Click to setup to connect without login credentials. The setup wizard that opens provides two options, Setup New System or Add to Existing System.

Setup New System – specify a System name and owner password. The following advanced settings are also available:

Device setting optimization (see "Preventing Wisenet WAVE from Changing Camera Streaming Settings")

Device auto discovery (see "Automatic Device Discovery")

Usage statistics and crash reports logging (see "Sending Anonymous Usage and Crash Statistics")

Add to Existing System – if a System contains multiple servers (see "Configuring Multi-Server Environment"), specify:

System URL – this value can be auto-discovered. If it is not, the URL format is http://<host>:<port>, where <host> is the name or IP address of the server and <port> is the server port (usually 7001)

Login and password for the existing System

Whether it is a new System or the server is connecting to an existing one, the following settings will be required:

Storage on each server must be configured (see “Configuring Server and NAS Storage”).

Devices must be properly set up (see “Device Management (Cameras, Encoders and I/O Modules)”).

Recording settings must be established (see “Setting up Recording Schedule”).

Once storage, device, and recording configuration is complete it is possible to define the following:

User Roles and authorities (see "Users and User Roles")

Layout configuration (see "Layout Management")


note Note: All servers in a given System have the same "localsystemID" value. This parameter cannot be viewed or edited, it is required for internal processing when servers are merged. If you select "Setup New System," the localSystemId  is assigned during initial configuration. If you select "Add to Existing System," the localSystemId  is taken from the existing System.
