What's the Swarm Control Center (SCC)?

The Swarm Control Center was developed as centralized management hub for your Swarm Perception Boxes. Deployed in public cloud, namely in Azure, it enables centralized updates, basic monitoring and simple configuration through a single point of entry.

Data processing and computing will always happen on the Perception Box, never within the Cloud. The camera stream will not be sent to Azure or any other third party.

The Swarm Control Center is based on a dark environment approach, which ensures that at no time, Swarm Analytics is in the loop when it comes to data and management traffic.

To access your Swarm Control Center, simply use the URL you setup earlier in Deploy the Swarm Control Center. If your user does not have access to the SCC yet, you will receive a blank page. You will then needs to add yourself to the Enterprise Application in Azure AD.

If you still got no access, delete the cache of your browser and log out and back in to Azure.
