Can I connect an IA-A or an AUD-1 to a Sarix camera with built-in audio?

Issue

Can the AUD-1 or the IA-A be connected to a sarix camera that already has a built in microphone or is wired for line in and line out?

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • IA-A
  • Sarix Cameras
  • AUD-1

Cause

There is a need to determine if an audio accessory can be used with an camera that has line in and line out. Or if it has built in microphone.

Resolution

This is not recommended, the programming for existing audio devices that are built into the camera conflicts with the AUD-1 or the IA-A
