Installation instructions for the Ocularis security camera software
We have a new client for viewing video from our security camera system. Ocularis is a client replacement for NetGuard and will allow you to perform all of the current functions of NetGuard in a more modern interface. In addition Ocularis supports additional features which will be implemented over time.
Below are the instructions for installing or upgrading the Ocularis client.
Unless you have had Ocularis installed previously, Choose New. If your browser displays a message about allowing popups from cctvmgr.oc.edu, please allow them.
Once the file has downloaded, Click Run if your browser has that option. Otherwise, browse to the location where the file was saved and then double-click it to begin the install.
If a previous version of Ocularis is installed, you will receive the message above. Click Yes to remove the older version and install this current version.
Double click the Ocularis Client icon on the desktop to open the program. If the icon is not on the desktop, it can be found on the Start Menu under OnSSI -> Ocularis Client.
When the Ocularis Client login window appears, select Current Windows User under in the drop down menu in the User Name box. This will log you in to the security camera system using the same username and password that is logged into Windows. Enter cctvmgr for the server name and then click Login.
When you hover your mouse over the upper left side of the menu bar, the menu options will appear. Click on Views to see the different views which are available to you. While viewing a camera, click on Browse to view the recorded view from that camera.
Once you are logged in, the book icon with the question mark is a link to the pdf documentation on the Ocularis client. This document should help answer any questions you might have with using the Ocularis client.
The icon just to the left of the help icon will prompt to either log out of the client or to close the application. The icon to the right of the help icon will minimize Ocularis.
