Live Stream Camera Control

We have an MV32 that we would like to stream externally to a single off-site viewer. We only want to give this viewer temporary access to the camera, so making them a dashboard administrator would not be ideal. When I share the stream link it appears that the camera is stuck in fisheye mode and cannot be dewarped. Is there a way to allow this external streamer to have full access to the camera controls so they can look around the area in a dewarped view?

Re: Live Stream Camera Control

That's right when we use the "share stream externally" option, it does not allow any administrative access to the camera itself, that's by design.  Keep in mind you would NOT have to give people Administrative access to your whole Dashboard environment.  You can define camera-only admins, and while they would be logging into your environment, all they get a Cameras > Cameras and Cameras > Video Walls.  In addition, you can easily control which cameras they have access to, if they can view live only, or live and historical, and if they have the ability to export.  But you, as a full Dashboard admin could also see the Cameras > Video Access Log which shows every one of their interactions with every camera, what they viewed, if they took screenshots, if they exported anything.  If you need to be able to create these camera-only admins AND allow them to access certain aspects of the camera's settings, connect with your local Cisco Meraki team to provide your use case and requirements and they can add to an existing feature request or create a new one.

Kind of a big deal

@mpitcher  I beleive the stream link is exactly just that, only access to the live stream and no control of the cameras or any options.
