Exporting/Importing Camera Configuration on WebUI

Use the import/export feature to set configurations you have previously saved on a camera. This facilitates inputting your customized configurations instead of manually saving each setting again. This practical feature can be used when your device has been restored to its default settings due to an upgraded firmware or conducting a hard reset, or when you would like to apply your configurations to a new Amcrest IP camera.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Always export your camera configurations first before upgrading the firmware, conducting a hard reset or any other process that will cause your device to reset to the default settings. This process will only function correctly when the exporting step is done first as importing first will result in losing your configuration settings. 

In order to export and then import your camera's settings, please follow the below steps:

Export Your Camera's Configuration Settings:

1. Access the Web UI for your camera via Internet Explorer or Safari, then click on Setup button located on the top right corner of the screen.

2. Next, on the left-hand panel, click on the System tab.

5. Select a folder on your computer to save the Deviceconfig.backup file. Click on the save button when finished.
