Create/edit a camera group

Camera groups allow you to organize your video streams on the Live Video page the way you want them. A default camera group labeled All Cameras is created automatically, and it contains all cameras on the account. You can create multiple camera groups and switch between them as needed using the Alarm.com customer website.

Note: Camera groups only apply to the Alarm.com customer website and are not reflected in the Alarm.com app.

To create a camera group using the Alarm.com customer website:

Note: You can create new camera groups directly from the camera selection dropdown menu. For more information about the camera selection dropdown menu, see View specific video devices and camera groups.
