How many users can log into one Digital Sentry Digital Video Recorder?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • Digital Sentry
  • DS ControlPoint

Cause

Will have more then 5 users connecting to a Digital Sentry recorder.

Resolution

Digital Sentry does not have a limit on the number of users that can be created but does have a limit on the number of users logged into the system simultaneously. The limit relies on the network infrastructure and the 280mb throughput of the DigitalSentry system. To determine how many users can be connected to a DigitalSentry system use the Digital Storage Estimator. After putting in all your information in the storage estimator if the total bandwidth exceeds 280mb you will have to lower the amount of client users or amount of cameras each user will view until the total bandwidth does not exceed 280mb.
