Automated event action rules allow administrators to customize alarm handling rules (SOP). When an event occurs, the system can select different measures to handle the situation based on the type of event that occurred or the time the event occurred. These different measures include actively sending out email/SMS notifications to different groups, smartphone push notifications, activating multiple cameras to begin recording, assigning cameras to patrol a specific area or activating other external devices* providing automated and intelligent event handling.
*When an event occurs, event actions can notify other external devices via http commands (CGI/URL).
Event handling rules allows the system to automatically execute a specified action when an event occurs, minimizing any manual work that has to be done. For example, when a backyard camera detects motion, all cameras along the perimeter of a house can automatically begin to record. Or when a window is opened, PTZ cameras can immediately begin to patrol.
When cameras receive specified events, Surveillance Center can immediately send email/SMS or push notifications to selected individuals.
Linking to external devices
Support for external event settings allows other systems (e.g., door security systems) to trigger events in the Surveillance Center system. Surveillance Center can also receive events and proceed to notify external devices.
