What is an Activation?

The Activation may be for:
  • The Free 30-Day Test Drive.

  • To add video feeds to an existing Customer Account.

Activation Form

To activate an account or video feed from a camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder, we need certain information. Below we have an Activation Form that you may fill in and submit. Once that we have received this form, we will the process your activation request.

  • From the drop-down list, select a Free 30-Day Test Drive, New Account or Add Video Feed for an Existing Account. We will then process your activation request.
  • Upon completion, you will receive an email. For the Free 30-Day Test Drive and the New Account, you will receive the location and the login credentials.
  • For the Add Video Feed to an Existing  Account, you will receive and email for the date when the video feed(s) have been added.
Some things when filling out the Activation form
  • Device Timezone. This is the time zone for where the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder is located.
  • The Device Administrator Username and Password. This is the administrator level user for the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder. For multiple devices, the normal procedure is to use the same administrator username and password. This form assumes that you are doing this. We will use this to add a user for byRemote that will allow the connection of the Vision Platform software to the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder. Once that the activation is complete, feel free to change the administrator username and password, if you wish.
  • Device One. You will notice that the fields for the Device One are required. This is so that we do get the required information to correctly process your Activation request. Should you have a additional devices, please be sure to enter this information for each of the additional devices.
    • Video Feed Description. This is the description for the video feed from the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder channel that you wish to show in the Vision Platform software.
    • Device Mfr and Model. The manufacturer of the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder. Since each device manufacturer uses a different RTSP URL, we need the manufacturer and model to verify the correct RTSP URL.
    • Device Static IP or DDNS. This must be set-up in the router to provide the outside connection to the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder. With multiple devices at a location, the Static IP or DDNS will be the same for each device.
    • Device HTTP port. This is the HTTP port number that has been assigned to the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder. With multiple devices, each device will have its own http port number.
    • Device RTSP port. The RTSP port of the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder is used to provide the connection of the video streams from the camera, NVR or DVR or video encoder to the Vision Platform software. To allow the outside connection to the RTSP port, this must be set-up in the port forwarding of the router at the site where the devices are located. Each device must have its own unique RTSP number. We recommend using a 5 digit number, as 10554.  Then, for the next device, 11554. Next, 12554. And so on for all the devices. This will help prevent port number conflicts.
    • Video Stream NVR DVR Encoder Channel. Should the device be a NVR or DVR, it will have channels for the video streams. Each channel has a number. You would put that number here. A note. Some manufacturers call video encoders,  video servers.
    • Video Stream Recording Plan. This is the number of days for which you wish to have the video stream recorded. For Custom Plan, please put the number of days in the Activation Comments area.
    • Video Stream Resolution. This is the resolution that you wish to have recorded for the video stream.
    • Video Stream FPS. This is the Frames per Second (FPS) that you wish to have recorded for the video stream.
  • If you are a new byRemote Partner, and are using your own cameras for the Free 30-Day Test Drive, just put your name in the Customer field.
  • The form has room for eight cameras. Should you be adding more than eight cameras, you may add the additional camera information in the Account Activations Comments area.

You acknowledge that you have read this License Agreement, have understood it, and agree to be bound by its terms.

byRemote bills for the subscription(s) to the Hosted Video as a Service on a month-to-month basis, unless requested other-wise. The billing is based on activations and deactivations. A customer account or camera(s) is activated in the Licensed Software based on an activation request that is received by email or as an activation request from a byRemote web site. The billing will commence when the camera(s) for the customer account have been activated. The exception is the Free 30-Day Test Drive. The billing for the Free 30-Day Test Drive shall commence after the 30-Day Period, and only if the Hosted Video as Service is continued. For a customer account and camera(s) that are activated on or before the 15th of the month, the license billing will be for the current month. For a customer account and camera(s) that are activated after the 15th of the month, the billing will be for the subsequent month. Should a customer account be deactivated, the billing for the customer account will be cancelled for the billing month following the month in which the deactivation request for the customer account is received. For a camera(s) deactivation request, the billing for the camera(s) will be cancelled for the billing month following the month in which the deactivation request for the camera(s) was received. For a camera(s) license fee amount change request, the billing for the camera(s) will be adjusted for the billing month following the month in which the license fee amount change request for the camera(s) was received. A deactivation request for a customer account or camera is required for a billing cancellation or adjustment. byRemote will not deactivate a customer account or camera in the Licensed Software without a deactivation request. This deactivation request must be received as a deactivation request from a byRemote web site.


The archived (stored) video for the Hosted Video as a Service product is stored on remote servers that are deployed in a remotely located data center. Redundant Video Storage. The byRemote servers use redundant video storage with data redundancy by mirroring the video data across multiple hard drives. This is a best effort to provide video data retention. Should a hard drive fail, the video is then mirrored on another drive. It is not feasible to provide remote back-ups of video data. Should all the hard drives fail, the video data will be lost. This circumstance is unlikely and is beyond the control of byRemote.
