The FortiRecorder module allows you to set up, manage, and view cameras directly through the FortiAnalyzer GUI.
Cameras can be set to record continuously and/or when motion is detected. Recorded video is stored in the root storage of the FortiAnalyzer device, however, it can be accessed from other ADOMs.
FortiRecorder includes three panes:
- Camera Manager: Allows you to configure devices, profiles, and schedules.
- Monitor: Allows you to view streaming and recorded video from configured devices.
- Face Recognition: Allows you identify faces captured by the device and create profiles.
When upgrading from FortiAnalyzer 6.2.0 to 6.2.1 and later, previously enabled cameras are disabled until a new camera key has been created. Once created, cameras can be re-enabled. See Creating a camera key.
The FortiRecorder module and its features are only available in select FortiAnalyzer appliances and is disabled by default. See Enabling and disabling FortiRecorder.
Third-party cameras are not supported in the FortiRecorder module. For a list of supported cameras, see the FortiAnalyzer Release Notes.
