IO Pins for IO Alarm Linkage

ALARMINPUT4.png

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 Enable is selected, the external alarm is armed.


NOTE: All pins work as a switch only.
