How to Change User Permissions and Explanation of User Permissions?


This article explains the permission settings available for users of Wisenet SKY's Cloud VMS.
All features mentioned in this article may not be visible to all users and are based upon
the agreement with the Wisenet SKY provider. 

Administrators and Users



If a user is an Admin of an account, all permissions are enabled: create, delete, edit, and view access to all accounts and user settings, bridges, cameras, layouts, audit log, and archive.  


mceclip1.png  An admin of an account may be restricted to making only changes that do not affect 
depending on the setup of the account. Settings that affect billing include:
adding bridges and cameras, changing camera resolution, changing retention of cameras
(how long footage is stored in the cloud), analytic features, and archive. 
Please contact your Wisenet SKY provider in regard to these changes.  


An administrator of the account sets the permissions of a user.  The permissions can be set when first creating a user, or can be set later by going into the user settings.

Edit Sharing

Wisenet SKY provides the functionality to share cameras with other users and first responders.

This permission grants the user the ability to manage other users on the account.  This includes adjusting some permissions and granting access to cameras and layouts.  


Bridges and Cameras


Admin of Bridges and Cameras


This permission allows a user to create, edit, and view bridges and cameras.

affects billing may be disabled by the reseller.  In this case, the user will need to
contact their Wisenet SKY provider if they wish to make certain changes.

Edit Cameras


This permission allows the user to edit camera settings that don't affect billing.  The user with this permission can change the name of the camera, time zone, login credentials, tags, and notes.

Please contact your Wisenet SKY provider with questions about Analytics.  

Edit PTZ Stations

The user will be able to edit PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) settings under the PTZ tab in Camera settings if there is a camera with this functionality.  This includes creating, editing, and deleting stations.
