KiOS ( Operating System) is our own custom linux OS, which runs 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 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

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 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.

Power on the Raspberry Pi

When the installation is completed, you can plug the SD card into your Raspberry Pi. From this point KiOS will boot the kernel and re-partition your SD-card; Please note that the first time you boot KiOS it can take about 2 mins before the system is operational. When KiOS is ready you can open your favorite browser and type in the IP address of your Raspberry Pi. This will open the login page, which you can access with the username: root and password: root.

Login page webinterface

Access the Raspberry Pi with SSH

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