Question

How do I setup my Airsight Cameras to use Alarm Input Armed / IO Linkage on Alarm?


Answer

If you want to connect external alarm devices, when it’s an alarm input device, choose Alarm Input Armed to enable it, when it’s an output device, choose IO Linkage on Alarm to enable it.

There are two options for Trigger Level.

High: When the external alarm device is close, then the alarm is triggered.

Low: When the external alarm device is switching off, then the alarm is triggered.

There are two options for Output Level.

High: When chosen, the IO Pins work as a switch that is closed.

Low: When chosen, the IO Pins work as a switch that is switching off.

IO Pins for IO Alarm Linkage

I/O PINS: 1 Output 2 Output 3 Alarm input 4 Input (GND) Input pins: The input pins can be used for 1-way external sensor input. For example, you may connect a

Passive Infrared (PIR) Sensor to it for motion detection. When the external sensor is triggered, the IP camera

can be programmed to send an e-mail with a picture or to control the internal relay output.

If you link an external alarm device to Pins 3 and 4, when Alarm Input Armed is selected (Figure 10.0), the

external alarm is enabled.

Output pins: The output pins can be enable IO linkage on alarm.

You can also use ALARMINPUT5.png & ALARMINPUT6.png to control IO output Switch ON/OFF (See Figure 4.4).

NOTE: All the pins work as switch only.
