Attach an Image to a device profile

Is there a way to attach an image to a device? I am using PRTG to monitor security cameras and it would be helpful to include an image of the view the camera is supposed to have to the device profile in PRTG. I see there's a "note" field, but that isn't letting me add an image.

Hi there,

I appreciate your contact.

The Comments tab of a device is for text purposes and short notes only.
You can visualize the CCTV data using PRTG Maps. We've wrote a corresponding blog post and knowledge base article regarding that matter. The posts can be found here:

I understand a stream from the cameras can be brought in, however in troubleshooting a camera, it is often helpful to have a snapshot of the original view. This sometimes helps identify the location of the camera or assists in proper adjustment of the camera to its original view if has to be replaced.

Hi there,

I totally understand the need for that, but it's is nothing that can be achieved with PRTG I'm afraid.

Best,
