You can export SharpZ3 settings for use as diagnostic information if required by the AutoVu™ Support team. You can also use the exported settings file to restore the configuration of the SharpZ3 unit or to copy the configuration to another unit.

What you should know

  • You can only import settings from the same Sharp model, for example, a SharpV can only import settings from another SharpV.
  • You cannot export a configuration from a newer SharpOS version to an older SharpOS version.
  • WARNING: When you import settings to a SharpZ3, the camera's current configuration is lost with some exceptions, including:
    • Sharp Portal password
    • Network static configuration
    • Certificates
    • Product improvement program registration
  • Battery monitoring settings are unaffected by the import operation.
