Admin Timeout

Is there a way to disable the timeout for select users or networks in an organization?

 

We have users who only have access to the cameras network in our organization and they would like to leave the page up throughout the day without being logged out (the page is open and up on a second monitor). I do not want to disable the timeout for the whole org…

I am pretty sure there is not a way to set different time out lengths in the dashboard. (sounds like a great "Make a wish"). However for those users you could look into using a Chrome extension to refresh the page to keep the session alive, such as "Staying Alive for Google Chrome".

Kind of a big deal

Re: Admin Timeout

Unfortunately @MacuserJim is correct. The timeout is a global org setting so the users will need to keep the session active. 

 

If you have video walls set up, you could use the new auto rotate walls option to have the page auto refresh and move between walls. This should keep the session alive although I have not tested it since the feature just launched (hopefully it's available for everyone!).

We know this is annoying and are looking at allowing Camera Only Admins to be treated differently some time in the future.
