IVA™ Event Alarms

As a standalone NVR, the VMAX® IP Plus™ is equipped to perform not just as a recording device, but also as an alarm device.  This NVR can be configured to utilize connected MEGApix® IVA/IVA+™ cameras as trigger devices for alarms or specified events.  For example, if a person is being tracked and through an Intrusion zone, the VMAX® IP Plus™ can alert users and will log the event within its archive.

This article will outline how to set up IVA™ Event Alarms with a VMAX® IP Plus™.

**NOTE:  When using a MEGApix® IVA/IVA+™ IP camera, analytic rules must be configured within the camera’s web client through a web browser.  If analytic rules are not configured within the camera at the time of a target event, the VMAX® IP Plus™ will not be able to register such occurrences as desired.

IVA™ Event Settings

When a MEGApix® IVA/IVA+™ camera is connected to the VMAX® IP Plus™, the system will display “IVA Event” at the bottom of the camera’s channel.   The camera’s display will include the existing camera rules if enabled, but will require some minor setup for the VMAX® IP Plus™.

Enabling IVA™ Camera Settings

To enable and manage IVA™ Event settings:

  1. Log in to the VMAX® IP Plus™ as an Administrator or as a role with equivalent permissions.
    • Default User:  admin
    • Default PW:  <no password>
  1. After logging in to the VMAX® IP Plus™, right-click on the IVA™ camera channel with the mouse and select “Camera Setup”.

  1. The IP Camera Setup window will display.

Select the Channel of the IVA™ camera for configuring, then click the IVA Event button.

  1. An IVA Event settings window will display.

Enable the Use setting to unlock the analytic features.

If you would like for additional OSD (on-screen-display) information to display for the camera, you may also enable the following:

  • Show Object Area – enable this setting to show detected objects or people that are being tracked by the MEGApix® IVA™ camera
  • Show Object Trail – enable this setting to show the motion tracking path of detected objects or people that are being tracked by the MEGApix® IVA™ camera
  • Show Object ID – enable this setting to show the object identification tag as configured within the MEGApix® IVA™ camera
  • Show Event Area – enable this setting to show the designated detection zones as configured within the MEGApix® IVA™ camera
  • Show Rule Area – enable this setting to show special rule areas as configured within the MEGApix® IVA™ camera

**NOTE:  The settings Show Object Area and Show Event Area are limited to only one of these two being enabled at a time.  If both of these settings are enabled, then the areas may not display as desired through the NVR.

  1. Click the Close button to exit the IVA Event settings window, then click the Apply button to save the settings for the camera.

Repeat this process (Step 3 – Step 4) for any remaining MEGApix® IVA™ cameras as needed.

Using the IVA™ Event Alarm Manager

After enabling the IVA™ camera settings, you can set IVA™ Event Alarms for the VMAX® IP Plus™.  To do so:

  1. Open the Camera Setup menu for the IVA™ camera.

Select the Channel of the IVA™ camera for configuring, then click the IVA Event button.

  1. An IVA Event settings window will display.

Click the Alarm Manager Settings button.

  1. The IVA Event – Alarm Manager window will display.

From this window, you can set up event alarms, specifically for IVA™ events.  Click and enable the Use setting.

Select a slot from the list and configure the following:

  • Name – enter a name for the event alarm
  • Type – use the drop-down and select the type of IVA™ type that will trigger the Event Alarm
  • Channel (CH) – enable the “CH” toggle and select which camera channel this alarm will be assigned to; alarms can be assigned to channels other than the channel to which the camera is connected as well
  • Popup – enable this setting to have the VMAX® IP Plus™ automatically display the designated camera channel for this alarm rule if the event triggers
  • Buzzer – enable this setting to have the VMAX® IP Plus™ emit an audio alert if the event triggers
  • Relay – enable this setting to have the VMAX® IP Plus™ trigger its relay function; set the time duration (in seconds) for the relay trigger
  • Notify – between Remote, E-Mail, and Mobile, select a notification type to have the VMAX® IP Plus™ send external alerts if the event triggers

**NOTE:  When using the Notify option, “Meta Data” must be selected for the NVR’s Remote Notification settings.  This is configured when setting up remote notifications for the NVR.  Please consult the VMAX® IP Plus™ User Manual for notification setup if needed.

  1. Once you have finished configuring the IVA™ Event Alarm(s), click the Apply button to save the settings.

If you must make changes to any of the alarms, you can select the rule from the list, then click the Edit button to reconfigure the settings.
