For Basler units to stream at the exact frame rate set in Security Center, you must configure the Exposure Mode setting on the unit’s web page before adding Basler units in Security Center.


  1. Open the unit's web page.
  2. Click Configuration > Camera Configuration > Image Controls.
  3. From the Exposure Mode drop-down list, select Prioritize: Framerate.
  4. To apply your settings, close the Image Controls section of the unit’s web page.
  5. (Optional) If you want the video streams to use a frame rate other than the values available in Security Center, then do the following:
    1. Click the Camera Configuration > Streaming > Global tabs.
    2. From the Frame Rate Mode drop-down list, select the desired frames per second value.
      When you change the global Frame Rate Mode setting, the frame rate values available in Security Center change. The values available in Security Center are 1:1, 1:2, 1:4, and 1:8 of the global Frame Rate Mode value.

After you finish

If the unit is already added in Security Center, then restart the unit.
