SpotCast turns any screen into a video wall, meaning you have more ways to actively view your camera footage without the need for a mouse and keyboard.
SpotCast allows you to dedicate a screen to your walls without logging in and out of the dashboard. This means if you like the traditional screens to view video footage for security purposes, Spot enables you to have this functionality in a modern format via SpotCast.
1.) To get started, access https://dashboard.spotai.co/spotcast
You can choose to:
A.) Connect a DisplayPort cable to the back of your Spot appliance directly to a screen. You will then be able to monitor your video walls on this screen. Please note - our appliances only support the physical connection of one monitor at a time.
Note: Please make sure when you're plugging in the DisplayPort on the back of the appliance that it's going into the appliance port, not the GPU port. See the picture below for a reference
B.) Visit https://dashboard.spotai.co/kiosk on any web browser on a Smart TV, tablet, office monitor, laptop-- any screen or display with an internet connection!
i.) A kiosk code will then appear.
ii.) Go to https://dashboard.spotai.co/spotcast in a new browser window and enter the unique kiosk code that was previously generated.
iii.) Click "Add Kiosk". You've officially registered the screen, meaning you can now select which wall you'd like to view on it!
iv.) Select the wall you would like to display on the screen.
v.) Click on the SpotCast button to enable the SpotCast to cast to the screen or display that you are using.
If you wish to change which wall you display, select the desired wall, click SpotCast, and then select the appropriate "kiosk" on which you wish to display the wall.
Note : If you restart the device or the session expires or open up new browser, you will need reset up new kiosk, new code will appear on window and that needs to added on dashboard.
