Check if your system is performing correctly!
The VRM Monitor is one of the best options to check if the system is recording correctly, providing a quick overview as well as detailed information about all the cameras and storage added to VRM.
In this article you are going to see how to access VRM Monitor from Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) Configuration Client. Furthermore, you will find here some useful information about each section on the Dashboard page.
How the video stream management works when using the Remote Portal connect feature?
Does the cloud-service simply initiate the connection between device and client, or throughout the video stream as well?
Assuming a Remote Connect, the camera is viewed by Video Security App (connecting via Remote Portal) — but physically connected via a local WiFI (LAN).
Does the video stream (from camera to client) remain only on the LAN?
Or, does the video stream need to first process 'through' the cloud?
This article aims to define the way you can display camera video via decoders. Moreover, fifteen different settings scenarios and their effects will be outlined for the live video to be displayed through the decoder.

How to move the Bosch PTZ camera to a specific pre-position during inactivity?
This can be done via alarm task scripting.
The “inactivity” algorithm below will move the camera to Pre-position 99 in the Alarm Task scripting.
In this way, you can use the Pre-position 1 for other surveillance purpose.
Load balancing is provided with respect to the bandwidth and the number of iSCSI connections and is configurable per IP address ( iSCSI target).
Load-balancing parameters are optimized for the DIVAR IP 5000 default configuration (JBOD). When running DIVAR IP 5000 in RAID 1 mode, load-balancing parameters may need adaptation in BVMS.
Navigate in the device tree of BVMS Configuration Client to VRM devices > Local VRM > [Context Menu of the storage expansion] > Load Balancing
