  3. Search the page (CTRL + F, or cmd + F) and enter the name of the camera you are searching for using the camera's name in your System. g. "Kitchen"

    Located above, in the camera name, you will notice a parameter called "physicalId". This is where you can find the unique physicalId for the targeted device.
