Setting the Eye on more than one computer
When a call is made from a 2N Intercom, it is also possible to display its video on more than one computer. In order to do it, intercom needs a call destination for each Eye appliance. It can be either any IP phone or any software phone. In this manual, we will show how to set it up with software called MicroSIP installed on a computer.
In this example, we want to achieve Eye displaying on two computers whenever a call is made from the intercom.
You need to define two call destinations. In this case, first destination will be an IP phone with IP address (192.168.1.24) different from intercom and both computers. This destination will have first computer's IP address (192.168.1.30) defined as IP Eye address.
Second call destination will be the IP address of second computer (192.168.1.31) as we will set it to call the MicroSIP program installed on this computer. Eye address will also be the address of the second computer (192.168.1.31). Also, group calling between these two destinations must be enabled:
IP Eye settings
IP Eye settings are identical to settings to the scenario with a single computer setup.
You can download MicroSIP here. Installation is a standard procedure:
Now you can view camera image in the same way as is described in the first part of the manual.
