When you configure settings in the gateway, you pass them onto all of the cameras associated with the gateway.
To configure a Barracuda Cloud Video Gateway, once it has already been set up:
- In Camera mode, click the Configuration Panel icon .
- In the side panel, select one or more cameras associated with the gateway.
- In the Gateway table, click the Settings icon associated with the gateway you want to configure.
Configure the gateway in its Gateway Settings Page. To apply your preferences and continue working in the Configuration window, click Apply. When you have finished, click Save & Exit.
- Name – The name of the gateway appears automatically. You can change it here, if needed.
Location – Select the location for the gateway and the cameras associated with it. Create a new location if needed.
To create a new location, click New, then type a name for the new location.
- Time Zone – Select the time zone where the gateway is located. Alert schedules and bandwidth schedules for cameras associated with the gateway operate on gateway time.
- Cameras – A list of cameras associated with the gateway. Click a camera name to go to its specific settings panel.
- Bandwidth Management – Select this check box to enable Bandwidth Shaping. Bandwidth shaping averages out the data upload over a longer period of time. For each camera on the gateway, images are stored on the microSD card and trickled to the service without impacting your network.
- Bandwidth – The default bandwidth for cameras on the gateway, in kilobits per second, when there is no schedule.
- Max Bandwidth – When no schedule is in effect and the microSD card is getting close to full, cameras on the gateway will increase their bandwidth to this setting. A value of 0 means there is no limit. If you do not set this value to either 0 or a number greater than 500, the microSD card might become full and the camera will begin to overwrite the oldest video on the card.
- Free Storage – Amount of storage capacity, as a percentage, remaining on the microSD card that triggers Max Bandwidth, described directly above. For example: A setting of 10 would trigger Max Bandwidth when the microSD card is within 10% of being full.
- Bandwidth Schedules – Click Add to set one or more schedules to control bandwidth usage on specific days and times for the cameras associated with this gateway. For example, you can set the bandwidth lower during high-traffic times on your network and increase it at night to allow the cameras to empty their microSD cards. To create a schedule, specify the Frequency, Start and End times, and one or more days of the week. Specify the default Bandwidth and Max Bandwidth for cameras on the gateway. Click Add to create additional schedules. Click Delete to delete a schedule. Click Apply to save your settings or wait until you have finished with the entire page and click Save & Exit.
- Offline Alert Addresses – One or more email addresses to receive emails if the gateway is offline. Separate emails with commas.
- Network Connection – Select how the gateway will obtain an IP address, either Ethernet DHCP or Static.
