IVMS-4200 is a powerful tool that allows you to monitor your camera system right on your computer. This post goes into detail about how to navigate and use it.
Note: This is not to be confused with the mobile app, IVMS-4500(Which I go into detail about here.)

Opening the Program and Setting Up a View
This section will detail how to review footage on your system.
Step 10: Click on the time bar(where the red arrow is), and drag to the left. This will scroll through footage. (You can drag the time bar to the right to go back, as well.)
Exporting clips from footage
Sometimes you will need to show footage to a third party, such as the police. This will require you to retrieve the data directly from your system to place onto a USB stick. Detailed below is the process of exporting the data onto your computer, and then onto a USB stick.
Step 2: Choose your start time. This process is identical to searching normally on Remote Playback, as described above and detailed in this link.
Step 6: You will now need to download the appropriate video player to view the files, as they will only play with specific video software. Click here.
Step 17: Make sure your third party gets access to this link so that they can download the player themselves. They will not be able to view the clips if they do not have access to the program. If you are unsure of how to share this with them, you can just click the link yourself and copy down the address.
Renaming cameras will save you a lot of headaches from trying to match the default names to the pictures being displayed. I highly recommend doing this if it hasn’t already been done for you, or if you lost the names from a technical issue.
