By default, VADAAR applications are discovered automatically using a network discovery protocol. Network discovery only allows VADAAR applications to be added to Central Control's known services.
Static Services allow third party devices to be added to VADAAR. Additionally, you may specify VADAAR applications to be added statically, so that automatic service discovery isn't relied upon.
Disable Automatic Discovery (If using Static IP's)
Uncomment (remove the # from) the following lines in the Central Control settings file at C:\ProgramData\VADAAR\Central-Control\settings.yaml. You will then have to replace the example IP's with the actual static ip's from your system. You can also add additional static IP's as needed.
Central Control will need to be restarted to apply these settings.
# - http://192.168.1.147:1234 (Example IP, replace with static IP)
# - http://192.168.1.147:1235 (Example IP, replace with static IP)
Add Static Services
Access the Static Services page via the Settings page in the Central Control web UI.
For third party devices, you will need to add a Static Service Group. These will become collections that the actual services will belong to. For example, you may have groups for IP Cameras, encoders, different locations, etc.
After adding a group, you may begin to add third party devices using the Add Static Service button.
From the Type drop-down menu, select the type of service you are adding. The different services types will be detailed below.
VADAAR Applications (Sender, Viewer and DVR)
You may statically specify a VADAAR application here. You will need the IP Address for the PC and the port that the application is running on.
Default ports for VADAAR applications:
The RTSP Stream type allows you to specify an RTSP endpoint for third party devices. IP cameras and encoders that support the RTSP streaming protocol can be added to VADAAR this way. Please refer to the instructions for the third party device to find the RTSP URL.
Raw UDP Streams
The Raw UDP Stream allows you specify a packet capture source for UDP recordings. See this article for more details.
