Administration—This menu lets you set up users, restart the camera, upload new firmware, and save your configuration files. The camera supports up to 20 users, and each user can be assigned administrator privileges (complete control), monitor (tilt/pan, if used with a TPZ mount, toggle day/night and output ports) or viewer (view video only).

Audio/Video—The video menu lets you set the default resolution for both MPEG-4 and MJPEG. For each codec, you can select the view quality. The menu also lets you enable the time stamp and camera name so that it appears in the video, as well as setup a custom logo for your camera. If you need the camera to switch between day and night modes, this menu lets you schedule the day/night periods. For that option, you have to scroll down.
The audio menu lets you enable audio modes (simplex listen only, simplex talk only, half-duplex talk/listen, or full duplex talk/listen).
