We're beginning to roll out cameras to 50 sites and it's been frustrating that there isn't a supported solution for this request. I see similar requests on the community board going back to 2017. I submitted a tech support case and the reply was to use the make a wish function, which I did. Having worked with analog and other IP video systems for a long time, it is a bit irritating to have to jump through all of these hoops to provide a guard station solution; a concept that has been around for decades. My solution so far is to set our company up as an MSP to separate our other network functions from the camera networks so we can maintain tight admin controls in one area of the portal but allow for less secure options in the camera networks like no time outs, no MFA, etc. The plan is to use a NUC with an i5 or better processor and chrome extensions to remember the video wall login and auto refresh the page. We'll use Meraki SM or another MDM solution to lock the device in kiosk mode with Chrome set to full screen. We'll probably need to install VNC or LogMeIn to troubleshoot when the browser inevitably crashes.
