User Login Settings
When users connect to the NVR from Remote DETEXI Clients, they will be required to authenticate with user settings defined in the NVR. The DETEXI NVR has the ability to provide different lists of cameras to different users, only allowing users to see and interact with the cameras they have privileges for. In addition, permissions such as PTZ control, maximum connection time, task control, etc. are configurable on a per-user basis
To create a user with specific rights
- In the NVR Control Center switch to the Users.
- Below the Users List click Add button to open blank User Information dialog;
— or —
Click Dup button to open a copy of selected user settings for editing.
- Enter a single word, case-sensitive, alphanumeric User Name to use to login to the NVR.
- Enter a single word, case-sensitive, alphanumeric User Password and re-type it to the User Password Confirmation to be sure it is typed as desired.
- Enter the Number of Active Users to define the number of Client instances the user can be signed into simultaneously.
- Enter Max connection time to define the number of minutes user can be continuously connected to the NVR before the connection will be terminated. User may login again if desired. A value of 9999 designates no time limit.
- Check Master User checkbox to give the user permission to terminate other user sessions from the Client — Get Users.
- Check Can Search Archive checkbox to give the user permission to view/search NVR archive.
- Continue to User Cameras to Interact
- Usernames and passwords are case sensitive!
- Unless otherwise configured for security reasons, it is recommended to have at least 2 Number of Active Users allowed per user definition. In the event that a user’s session is not logged out properly, this ensures that they can log in again without intervention from a Master User or NVR Administrator.

User Cameras to Interact
The next step is to define which of the available cameras the user has access to. And also assign the level of authentication allowed from this user to the camera defined in the NVR Control Center — Cameras — Security & Alarm
In most cases, the camera has only one username and password, with administrative privileges. Be sure that User Rights (Adm/Oper/User)
settings make sense considering the authentication settings in the Security & Alarm
- Select a camera from the Cameras List at the left and click ">" button to add the camera permission to the user — the camera name appears in the selected cameras list at the right.
- Select the camera name in the selected cameras list at the right.
- Check proper checkbox under the User Rights to pass the previously configured camera authentication settings — Adm, Oper or User.
- Check Can PTZ checkbox below the selected cameras list to give the user PTZ permission on the selected camera. This setting is enabled by default if the camera has PTZ capabilities when assigned to the user.
- Repeat steps 11-14 to add more camera permissions.
- Click Save button below the Users List to save user settings.
- Be sure that User Rights (Adm/Oper/User) settings make sense considering the authentication settings in the Security & Alarm.
- The User Rights chosen for the first camera configured will automatically be assigned to each camera after that unless manually changed.
- PTZ permission is defined on a per-camera basis, and is enabled by default if the camera has PTZ capabilities when assigned to the user.
