RESTRICT SYSTEM ACCESS

In the CM6800E, system access is set to Yes (unrestricted) by default. The system supports the following ways to restrict system access:

Keyboard to Monitor: Set access to No in order to restrict a keyboard from accessing selected monitors.

Camera to Keyboard: Set access to No in order to restrict a keyboard from calling selected cameras to monitors. Or set access to V (video viewing only) to permit the viewing of selected cameras while preventing pan and tilt control.

Camera to Monitor: Set access to No in order to restrict the viewing of selected cameras on selected monitors.

NOTE: To restrict access for keyboards, all keyboard addresses must be within a range from 1-8.

NOTE: If you connect an ASCII keyboard/device to the CM6800E (COM port 1, 2, 4, 7, or 8), you can connect only one keyboard to a port. Specify access in the first column only (address 1).

1. Select the COM port number for which you are programming access control.

2. In the Access matrix, configure the specific access allowed for each device.

Keyboard to Monitor
In each monitor row specify the access allowed for each keyboard to control each specific monitor.

Y = Yes; control is allowed
N = No; control is not allowed

Camera to Keyboard
In each camera row specify the access allowed for each keyboard to view and control the specific logical camera number.

Y = Yes; viewing and control is allowed
N = No; viewing and control is not allowed
V = View only; camera can be viewed but not controlled

Camera to Monitor
In each camera row specify the access allowed for each monitor to display the specific logical camera number.

Y = Yes; camera can be viewed
N = No; camera cannot be viewed
