Cross-system Layouts

Operators with rights to multiple Systems can now combine cameras from Cloud-connected Systems into a single Layout. The ability to combine cameras from multiple cloud-connected systems into a single layout enhances situational awareness, streamlines operations, provides centralized control, fosters collaboration, offers flexibility, and enables scalability to Wave VMS. These advantages empower operators to efficiently monitor and manage security or surveillance operations across multiple locations or environments.


Available Actions:

  • Live Video
  • Archived Video
  • PTZ Controls
  • Motion Search


Key Benefits:

  • Combine video from multiple Cloud-connected Systems into a single Layout


How cross-system layouts works:

  • Create a Layout by dragging cameras from your currently connected System onto the Viewing Grid.
  • In the Resource Panel, scroll down to the Other Systems. Compatible Systems (v5.1 and higher) will have nested cameras.
  • Drag a camera of your choice onto the Viewing Grid and click Save to Cloud Layout to save your new layout. Cross system layouts will now appear in the left navigation tree as Cloud Layouts.

Camera Replacement

A simple, straightforward way System Owners or Administrators can replace an IP camera with just a few clicks of the mouse. The ability to replace an IP camera provides time-saving convenience, ease of installation, reduced disruption, cost-effectiveness, and remote management capabilities. These advantages contribute to a more efficient and effective management of Wave VMS, empowering system administrators to maintain optimal surveillance coverage.


  • Name, archive, general and advanced settings, recording settings, PTZ settings, event rules, analytics and camera access rights will be transferred to a new camera.
  • Motion Detection settings, 2-way Audio will not be transferred
