Once you’ve built programs on one of your VS2 units, you can easily push them out to units across multiple production lines using the Cloud Sync feature. Cloud Sync works by taking all the programs on a camera and storing the configurations (including programs) to the Samsara Cloud.
Once it is in the cloud, you can push out the configuration to any number of devices within the same organization. This allows you to easily scale the programs from a master line onto the rest of the lines to simplify and speed up the process of getting other lines operational.
Cloud Sync works in two steps:
1) Once you have built all the necessary programs on the master VS2, you must take a snapshot of it from the program list view. By doing so, we will automatically take a snapshot of all the programs on the devices and load it to the Samsara Cloud. This backup includes all the program inspection steps, master images, and output details.
Once the snapshot is ready, you can push it out from that master device to the other lines you want to push programs to.
2) Select the Sync Cameras drop-down, choose the snapshot you want to sync, and the cameras that you want to apply the snapshot to.
Once you complete this step, it will take a couple of minutes for the changes to be pushed out to all the selected cameras. After the sync is complete, all programs will be available in a “read-only” mode with only the camera settings being adjustable.
Note: you cannot chain Cloud Sync between multiple cameras.
