The VIGI camera supports the RTSP protocol, so it can work with third-party NVR or NAS devices that also support the RTSP protocol. If a user wants to view the live stream of the camera with a third-party app like VLC Player, he will just need to input the URL of the RTSP stream on the VLC Player app.

The URL of the RTSP live stream for the VIGI cameras will be:

For high quality stream1: rtsp://IP Address/stream1

For low quality stream2: rtsp:// IP Address/stream2


1. The username/password is the camera account that you created via the VIGI app.

2. The IP address is the camera’s IP address assigned by your host router. You can find it on your host router’s DHCP list or in the VIGI app (Go to Camera Settings and navigate to the camera details page).

3. If you want to view the live stream of the VIGI camera with a third-party app remotely, you will need to open port 554 for the camera on your host router first.

4. You could also use ONVIF standards to add the VIGI camera with its username/password and IP address.

Apart from the VIGI app, VIGI cameras can work with other third-party software to use and manage your VIGI camera.

Note: Before you start, make sure the computer and your camera are connecting to the same network.

Step 1: Confirm your access to the camera

Make sure that you have access to your camera by Username and Password which you created at the very beginning of the setup.

Step 2: Add your VIGI camera on iSpy

1. Run the iSpy software on your computer.

2. Click Add on the top left menu and select ONVIF Camera.

3. Enter the Username and Password that you set for your camera on the pop-up window, select Network Address, and click Next. You can customize other parameters if needed.

4. Choose the video resolution and click OK.

5. Customize the camera settings as needed, including Microphone, Talk, Motion Detection, Alerts, Recording, Images, Scheduling, and Storage. You can also change all the settings later. Click Finish to complete adding your camera to iSpy.

6. After adding your VIGI camera to iSpy, you can monitor and manage it using the app. View the live, customize motion detection, check the recordings when motion detected, set recording schedules, record videos and more.
