We are looking at these to migrate to for our onsite 24hr security staff. They will need to Live monitor a number of cams over our fiber WAN. Documentation states the stream is routed directly to the monitor if viewing on same LAN? They will be on a segmented VLAN not on the same subnet. Will the stream still route locally?
All that is required is an IP route between the requesting client and the camera. They do not need to be in the same subnet or VLAN as they do not use a broadcast or multicast protocol for discovery. Dashboard knows the IP address of both the client and camera. For your deployment to work you will need a layer 3 device to make sure there is an IP route between the subnets.
