iDVR-E Series Surveillance DVR EMS E-Map Setup

iDVR Pro Surveillance DVR

The iDVR-E Series Surveillance DVR's are remotely accessible using the Enterprise Management Software (EMS). The Enterprise Management Software has a feature known as E-Map. E-Map allows users to place their cameras on a map or picture, such as the blueprint of the location in which the cameras are located. They can then select each camera to view the live video feed and playback.
