You can import or export the configuration settings from one Genetec Patroller™ instance to another, simplifying the deployment of multiple patrol vehicles.

What you should know

For example, if you have a fleet of patrol vehicles, you can configure one and then export the settings to the others. You cannot import settings between different versions of Genetec Patroller™. For example, you cannot import settings from a 6.5 version of Genetec Patroller™ to a 6.6 version of Genetec Patroller™.
  • Before you import settings, your current settings are saved to a zip file on the patrol vehicle computer’s desktop to be used as a backup if necessary.
  • The imported Genetec Patroller™ settings will overwrite all current Genetec Patroller™ settings.
  • If an error occurs during import, Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool will abort the import process and restore the old settings.

Procedure

  1. Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool on the Genetec Patroller™ computer that is ready to export settings.
  2. Click Export.

    A zip file is created on the patrol vehicle computer’s desktop.

  3. Copy the zip file to the patrol vehicle computer you want to configure.
    NOTE: You can keep the file on a USB key or network drive if you choose, but it must be accessible by the patrol vehicle computer you want to configure.
  4. Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool on the patrol vehicle computer you want to configure.
  5. Click Import.
  6. Browse to the zip file with the Genetec Patroller™ settings you want to import.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.

Results

After importing the new settings, Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool closes. When you re-open it, the new settings are applied.
