What you should know

You can only have a maximum of three audio clips per camera. Audio clips are differentiated by a numbered suffix that appears in the label of each audio clip button.

With multiple audio clips, you can designate an audio clip per event or type of action. For example, always click Play audio clip1 when someone enters your premises. Also, from your Stratocast™ portal, you cannot replace the audio clips that are stored in the camera. If you want to replace or delete audio clips, contact your service provider.

For more information about the options available on your camera, contact your service provider.

To play audio clips from your camera:

  1. On the View page, select a tile whose camera is streaming live video, and then click Camera options ().
    Only camera options that are supported by your camera appear in the Camera options drop-down menu. If your camera does not support any of the available options, this menu does not appear.
  2. Click one of the available Play audio clip buttons.
    The camera plays the audio clip through the camera's integrated speaker.
