Camera Programming Documentation

Has any one figured out a good way to document the programming of the NVR and IP cameras in the field? I know there are different parameters for various manufactiurers but it seems to me that there should be some type of documentation recorded by the technician to make sure he does it properly. Coming from a security wrold, we have all types of safeguards in place for our systems and monitoing information. Even if the programming could be printed?

Anyway, just thinging out loud. Maybe I will work on some program for this.
