The VMS servers record video and audio from multiple cameras and audio channels and write the data to a storage device.
You can access a VMS Server locally or over a network using the System Manager and Spotter programs and monitor server functionality through the Spotter Diagnostics plugin.
A server is a computer with storage, the Windows operating system, and the installed VMS software with required drivers.
Several devices can be connected to a VMS Server:
PTZ (dome) cameras and keyboards
External devices, such as sensors, to the digital inputs
External devices, such as doors, lights, and gates, connected to digital outputs
Special integrated devices like radar, IoT device or 3rd party system
Storage or backup unit (NAS, SAN, or RAID, for example)
