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)


Output pins: Output pins (1 & 2) can be used to enable IO linkage on alarm.

  • For example, you might connect an external siren to sound when motion is detected.
  • You can also manually control the output switches via the WebUI buttons ALARMINPUT5.png & ALARMINPUT6.png to turn the connected device ON/OFF.



Input pins: Input pins (3 & 4) can be used for 1-way external sensor input to the camera.

  • For example, you might connect an external Passive Infrared (PIR) Sensor to it triggered the camera to send an e-mail and/or trigger the siren attached to the Output Pins (above).
  • If you link an external alarm device to Pins 3 and 4, when Alarm Input Armed is selected, the external alarm is enabled.


NOTE: All pins work as a switch only.
