The unit allows you to configure the following settings:

  • Input Type: Alarms are configured for normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) inputs.
  • Camera: Selects the camera (01 to 16, NONE) to be linked to the alarm input. Multiple cameras can be linked to one alarm input.

    • Use the Input Channel setting to assign one alarm input to one specific camera channel.

    2. Click Alarm.

    4. Click the Camera box, and select the desired channel.
