20  Alarm

Connect external alarm or sensor devices (not included) to the NVR and configure how the system will respond. An external alarm can help to alert of potential intruders while also letting intruders know that they have been spotted.

20.1  Wiring the External Alarm to an Alarm Block

You can connect external alarm input and alarm output devices to the system (i.e. motion sensors and glass break detectors). Use a motion detector or sensor to send a signal to the system to begin recording and trigger an alarm response. Simultaneously, the system sends an output signal to the enabled alarm output device.

20.2  Configuring Local Alarm

After connecting alarm input devices to the recorder navigate to the local alarm settings to enable and adjust preferences.

20.3  Setting the Alarm Output

Control the operation of external alarm output devices (not included) that are connected to the alarm block.
