Wallpaper 


You can change the wallpaper of the panel screen and set any desired image. To do it, follow these steps: 

  1. Log in to the entrance panel web interface. By default, the username is admin and the password is 123456.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab > Wallpaper section.
  3. Click Select File and choose a necessary image. It must be in one of the formats .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .gif and up to 10 MB size.   
  4. Submit settings to set new wallpaper.

You can always restore the default wallpaper by clicking the Set default button. And with the Preview button, you can check the current screen image.

Announcement 


Among the panel features is the option to display ads (HTTP pages or RTSP streams) in standby mode. In this section, you can enable/disable and configure this function.

  1. Log in to the entrance panel web interface. By default, the username is admin, and the password is 123456.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab > Announcement section.
  3. Enable the feature.
  4. Enter URL of the ad (RTSP stream or HTTP page).
  5. Set timeout for ad displaying (10 - 300 min).
  6. Submit settings.

Configure a local server to store ads:

If the equipment does not have access to the Internet, and there is no way to place files on any external resource, you can set up your own file storage on local server. 

Here is an example of settings for the Ubuntu operating system:

1. Install the npm service.

apt install npm

2. Install the http-server service.

npm install --global http-server

3. After installation is complete, you can run the service.

http-server . > http.log 2>&1 &

By default, the server will be available on port 8080, and the files will be stored in the ./public directory (if there is no such directory, then the files will be in the users home directory). The service itself will start running in the background.

However, we recommend you to create a new directory, so that users do not have access to your servers system directories. To do this, run the following commands:

mkdir /home/new_directory
http-server /home/new_directory . > http.log 2>&1 &

Example of settings for the Windows operating system:

1. Install NodeJS for your system.

2. Create a folder on your computer to store advertisements.

3. Open a command prompt (cmd) and go to the created folder.

cd C:/way/to a folder

4. Install the http-server.

npm install -g http-server

5. Launch http-server in the created folder.

http-server

Storage will be available on port 8080.
