ATM/POS recording is only available for one channel at a time. In addition to configuring the ATM/POS feature, there are other settings that must be configured. The associated features required to implement ATM/POS recording are as follows:

  • Schedule menu: Allows you to schedule the ATM/POS camera channel for text recording and configure the ATM/POS camera's text record settings (resolution, quality, frame rate, and so forth).
  • Linking menu: Allows you to configure the ATM/POS transaction filter settings.

The ATM/POS submenu allows you to select the transaction equipment, camera that records ATM/POS video and data, and the serial communication settings. The serial communication settings must match those of the transaction equipment.

The unit allows you to configure the following settings:

  • Interface Device: Allows you to select AVE Hydra or DEFAULT. The unit only supports the AVE Hydra. Learn more about AVE
