# KiOS

## Introduction

KiOS (Kerberos.io Operating System) is our own custom linux OS, which runs Kerberos.io out-of-the-box. KiOS is installed like every other OS for the Raspberry Pi, you need to flash the OS (.img) to a SD card. If you want to get Kerberos.io up and running at a short time frame, this is the most simple and basic installation procedure.

You can install KiOS by using our own installer, which gives you a nice GUI that will handle the flashing and network configuration for you, or you can do the flashing yourself by using Etcher.

## Easy Installation

ATTENTION!
We've experiencing issues with the easy installation if you are running Windows 10. When you're also experiencing issues, please follow the advanced installation using the Etcher installer. Meanwhile we'll try to resolve those issues.

Installing Kerberos.io to your IoT device, has never been so easy. By using our cross-platform installer, you can run a fully configured video surveillance system within 3 minutes. Indeed, we also think that's awesome!

By using the KiOS installer, you'll get an easy to use GUI which allows you to configure and flash KiOS to your SD card. Just download the installer, select a version, specify your network configurations, select your SD card and press the flash button; it can't be easier.

## Access the Raspberry Pi with SSH

To use Kerberos.io you only need access to the webinterface, however you can also access the system with SSH.
