Is the Endura SM5000 System Manager required for an EnduraXpress EE500 system?

Issue

Is the Endura SM5000 System Manager required for an EnduraXpress EE500 system?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • Endura EE500- All versions
  • Endura SM5000- All versions

Cause

Information regarding the necessity of the SM5000 in conjunction with the EE500 is needed.

Resolution

No. The Endura SM5000 is not required in order to have an EnduraXpress. The EnduraXpress already has a self contained System Manager built within its parameter. An SM5000 and an EE500 cannot be placed on the same network or their services will conflict with one another.
