Upgrading Digital Sentry Control Point breaks the Video Server connection or cameras won't learn
Andover Continuum, Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management
Pelco Digital Sentry Control Point 7.9 or greater
Continuum Video Integration 1.94 SP1 up to 2.01
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2012
Pelco released a newer version of the API(Application Programming Interface) that is used in Digital Sentries Video Recorders with Control Point 7.9 and above. This newer API is not currently supported in Continuum, up to version 2.01.
1. Once it is available, apply the hotifix to Continuum. This article will be updated with a link to the hotfix when it is available. R&D is working on revising the Continuum Video Integration to work with the newer API and Control Point versions 7.9 and above.
2. The only work around at this time to allow the Video Integration to function is to downgrade the DS Control Point to 7.8.
- Uninstall the DS ControlPoint software using Add/Remove programs (MS Windows XP) or Programs and Features (MS Windows 7).

Note: Upgrading the Continuum Security Key to an Endura Key will not allow the newer API(Upgraded Control Point) to be used with a Digital Sentry with Continuum.
