It is possible to use VRM free of charge (no extra VRM license is required) within Genetec Security Center. Genetec is sending encrypted secret to the VRM server with the number of the licensed channels. When VRM receives and validates this, it can be used for that number of channels for 24 h. A periodic license update is send by Genetec, so the VRM licensing is guaranteed as long as it is used with Genetec Security Center.
Default settings, if not extra configuration is needed or done.

If you need to license the system with more than the default 1000 licenses – create the parameter with Name VrmLicenseRequestCount and as value put the required number of licenses. The parameter name is case sensitive
If you need to change the duration of the period between each license request (there is always one license request when the archiver starts) – create the parameter with Name VrmLicenseRequestPeriod.

This article provides an answer to the question: Can I restrict the live view or playback in VSC for certain cameras added in DIVAR hybrid 5000?
Yes, you can restrict the live view or playback for certain cameras added in DIVAR hybrid 5000 for an user who is using Video Security App.
Essential Video Analytics (VCA) does not work as soon as the image is rotated to 90 degrees (under Initialization) and the camera is restarted. Additionally, the movements or objects are not recognized.
As soon as you set "Rotate image" to 0 degrees and set it back to 90 degrees, motion detection via Essential Video Analytics suddenly works again.
