Event Handling

An event type is a set of parameters describing how and when the video server will perform certain actions. Event types may be set up as Triggered or Scheduled, according to requirements.

A single event type may result in a single event, or it may result in many more, all depending on how often the conditions governing its behaviour are met.

The most common kind of event type will upload images to a specified destination. Other actions performed by event types can include the sending of e-mail, the activation of an output port, and the transmission of various types of notification.

A triggered event type is activated when a specific internal or external trigger condition is met. These triggers are:

•  a switch (doorbell) connected to an input port on the video server
•  detected movement in a configured motion detection window
•  a lost signal from a video source
•  a manually activated action e.g. from an action button in the web interface
•  restart (reboot) after e.g. power loss
Scheduled event types are set up to run at specified times, and can perform the same actions as triggered event types, e.g. the upload of images. A scheduled event type can be set to run all of the time, or in a repeating pattern on selected weekdays.
Example - A Car Park

In this example the camera is configured to detect a car entering the defined region of the image (motion detection). This is defined as an “event” and the video server can be configured to act on the event as described above.
