Upload floor plans, add devices to a floor plan, and get an overview of your location.

Updated over a week ago

Floor Plans make it easy for you and your organization to get a physical overview of your locations, including your devices, like Cameras and Door Controllers.

Where to Find Floor Plans

To manage your floor plans, go to your Sites page, and click on the Location where you want to manage or add a Floor Plan.

Add a Floor Plan

On your location page, click on + New Floor Plan under Floor Plans, give the floor plan a fitting name, and upload a JPG, PNG, or SVG file (max. 10MB file size limit).

Add Devices

Click on the + icon in the top right to add a device to your Floor Plan. Drag the device you want to add from the right menu, and put it in the desired spot on the Floor Plan. When hovering over the device icon, you can change the type of device, rotate it according to its physical setup, or remove it again.

Navigate the Floor Plan

You can zoom in and out either by clicking the +/- icons, or by scrolling up/down with your mouse. Move between areas of the floor plan by dragging the image into any direction. Hovering over devices will reveal a glimpse of device info, and clicking on it will open a side panel with more detailed information.

Device Status

On Floor Plans you can see various types of devices as well as their statuses. If two icons are overlapping, it means that there are multiple devices in this area. Click on the overlapping icon to reveal the underlying devices.

A red and blue cluster indicates that one or more devices in this cluster are offline, a grey/red icon indicates an offline device, and a blue/green icon indicates an online device.

Edit Devices

To manage your devices on the floor plan, click on ellipsis button in the top right and select Edit Devices. You can now move, rotate, and remove your devices, as well as change your device type (for example 180, 90, or 45 degree camera).

Select Save to keep your changes, or cancel to discard them.

Change a Floor Plan

You can change your Floor Plan image by clicking on the ellipsis button in the top right and clicking Change Floor Plan Image. Here you can upload a new plan.

Make Good Use of Your Floor Plans

There are many useful things you can do with Floor Plans in Views, like selecting multiple cameras for Synchronized Playback!
