licensing when adding the same camera multiple times
For creation of multiple zones (Regions Of Interest, ROI), rules, and possibly schedules, I understand that the current recommended practice is to add the same camera multiple times with each configuration setup to accommodated.
As an example:
In the daytime camera A is checking one particular area (call it Zone A) for any activity (people or vehicles). At night (sunset to sunrise) I might then change Camera A to be looking only for People, and only in another area of interest (call this Zone B). I might then have another configuration for Camera A where it only check for vehicles in a certain area (call this Zone C) from 4pm to 10pm.
Would each of these configurations consume a camera license (three licenses), or does the system associate a camera license with an IP address (or some other mechanism) for licensing and therefore only require a single license?
I am still evaluating the move to SecuritySpy but would like to better understand this aspect in order to calculate the true cost to switch.
