With Rhombus, you have granular control over camera settings. From video resolution to privacy regions to bitrate, to location and beyond, you can customize camera settings according to your needs. We want to make every step of the process as simple as possible and that's why we created the Batch Actions feature. Now, you can adjust the settings of batches of cameras rather than making the adjustments one at a time.
What is it?
This user-friendly console feature allows a user to select as many cameras as desired from the devices page, and mass change location or camera settings. Super users who know exactly what settings they prefer on certain camera models will now save time by batch-updating cameras instead of configuring each one at a time.
How to use it?
To get to Batch Actions follow this simple pathway:
Rhombus Console > Devices > Cameras > Actions
Once there, you will see that this feature has two main functionalities, batch-assign locations and batch-assign camera settings.
Assign to Location
This sub-feature allows you to select as many cameras as needed, and mass update their location. This is a really helpful feature for scenarios like moving, especially if the current location had a large number of cameras set up. Individually updating each camera location would be very time consuming, but with this feature, it can be done in just a few seconds. After selecting the cameras and typing in the new location, press assign to save your changes.
Manage Camera Settings
This sub-feature also allows you to select as many cameras as needed and mass update camera adjustments such as shutter speed, max ISO, brightness, and much more as shown below:
Manage Camera Settings is intuitive and user-friendly as it displays all the cameras you select and groups them by model, without limiting the ability to mass assign them. After you're done applying your changes, press the Save All Changes Button.
Alternative Ways to Batch Assign
There is another way to batch-assign camera features, to get to that, please follow the pathway below:
Rhombus Console > Devices > Camera > Camera Settings > Edit Multiple Cameras
After pressing this option, you will be taken to the window below and can choose from cameras of the same model.
After selecting the cameras, press the save option, and you will see an editing camera banner above the camera settings. The screenshot is below:
This way of batch assigning takes a few extra steps and only lets you batch assign cameras that are the same model. Because of that, we highly encourage you to use the Batch Action feature described above instead, it gives you more flexibility and will allow you to save the most amount of time.
