DIVAR IP all-in-one 4000 and 6000 devices that have DIVAR IP System Manager 1.5 installed must be upgraded to DIVAR IP System Manager 2.0 or higher (always use the latest available version), to be able to connect to Remote Portal.
In the video below we will show the steps of the process of installing a new version of System Manager on a supported DIVAR IP, which already has a previous version installed. We will update from version 1.5 to 2.0.0, but this process can be used for subsequent updates as well. We will go through the following steps:
[00:50] Step 1: Downloading the System Manager update-file.
[02:33] Step 2: Installing System Manager update, and checking the installation.
DIVAR IP all-in-one 4000 and 6000 devices that have no system software installed and have not been setup yet, can be connected to Remote Portal only after DIVAR IP System Manager 2.0 or higher (always use the latest available version), as well as the respective operation mode software packages have been installed on the device.
The video below shows the steps of a first time installation on systems that use System Manager (DIVAR IP AIO 4000, 6000 and 7000 3rd gen with System Manager 2.0) This video is for DIVAR IP with BVMS versions 11 and up.

We will follow these steps:
[00:57] Step 1. Download System Manager from the download store
[02:13] Step 2. Install the software on the DIVAR IP all-in-one

In this video we will show how to create an account on Bosch Remote Portal, which is required in order to be able to connect a DIVAR IP all-in-one device to Remote Portal and make use of the Remote System Management capabilities:
In the video below, we will show how to connect/register a DIVAR IP all-in-one to Bosch Remote Portal using Remote System Management.
Once the required software is installed on the supported device, the registration method is the same for each device.
Setting a default commissioning company, is an optional step that is also shown. This is only required if your email is assigned to multiple company accounts.
An option that is not shown in the video, is SingleKey ID.
Bosch has introduced SingleKey ID as an identity provider (IdP) to allow a central sign-in to all Bosch applications, services and platforms. To connect the device to Remote Portal by using SingleKey ID, follow the instructions on the screen.
In the video below, we will show how to disconnect/unregister a DIVAR IP all-in-one to Bosch Remote Portal using Remote System Management.
The method exists out of two parts: first on the device itself, the registration is removed. Then, in Remote Portal, the device configuration is removed as well:
In order to use Remote System Management from Remote Portal after the DIVAR IP all-in-one is connected and registered, a license is required.
Initially, a 30-day trial license is available for each DIVAR IP all-in-one. If in that time period a full license is purchased and activated on the Remote Portal account and the system is set to auto-renew, the purchased license will automatically be used after the trial period expires. If no purchased license is available, the DIVAR IP all-in-one will become unavailable from Remote Portal after the 30-day trial period.
In the following video we will show how to activate a license (in this example, a trial license) for Remote System Management on a DIVAR IP all-in-one.
Activating a purchased license works the same way as activating a trial license. For seamless remote system management service, make sure to enable the 'Auto-renew" option. This can be done at any time, also during the trial period, and can be found in the same place as shown in the video below:
In this video we will show how to add purchased licenses to Bosch Remote Portal. The video is part of a series of videos about Remote System Management, but can also be useful when using Remote Portal for other licenses, as the process is the same:
In this video we will show the monitoring features found in Remote Portal when using Remote System Management on a connected DIVAR IP:
In the video below we will show how to update firmware of cameras connected to the DIVAR IP as well as DIVAR IP software, using Remote Portal.
