On the side of Siveillance server go to section "Servers/Recording servers". Do a right click on your recording server and choose "Add Hardware" (if server is not authorized yet, then you have to click on "Authorize first"). Now click on "Add" to add a new device fill credentials that you choosed for Onvif account in the intercom (in our case it is ONVIF/ONVIF). Then click on next.

Now Siemens Siveillance VMS will search for ONVIF devices in your network, once the intercom will be found, it will appear with label "Successfull". If intercom is not checked, then please do so and click on "Next".
On next screen you will see successfully added devices, just click on "Next" again.
Now you have to choose HW from available peripheries of the intercom by checking the items. Typicaly you will use camera, microphone, speaker and some outputs (active ouput, relays). So just check desired HW and click on "Next".
In next step, you have to add the chosen HW to groups. If you did not create the groups yet, you have to do it now. Click on folder of particular group and then click on plus. Group will be added with default name, you can change it once you will add it. Once you will add the group, make sure that you marked it with cursor (it has to be blue) and then click on "ok". This will set the group as default group for this type of HW. Do the same for all groups. Once you will create new deafult groups just click on "Finish".
Once the procedure is finished, you will see added devices and their peripheries. You can also add the peripheries you did not add before to groups (not added peripheries are marked with red cross). Optionally you can rename the device and also the peripheries here. Also you will see video from camera here. If Siveillance is not able to connect to the camera, then please check your firewall settings!
