Overview of the menu system
The Main menu gives access to several functions to help use the unit. Access to the Main
menu is only possible with a User Account at the Administrator User Level. There are three
ways of accessing the Main menu:

Triggers and alarms
Various types of events change the way the unit works. These events are:
–
an alarm input signal applied to the unit
–
motion detection in a camera signal
–
a loss of video from one of the cameras
–
an internal alert from the unit itself (i.e. disk failure, temperature alarm)
The way the unit reacts to events depends on how it is programmed.
An event can cause either a trigger or an alarm. A trigger changes the way the unit works but
does not require a response from the user. An alarm also changes the way the unit works but,
in addition, usually activates several indicators and requires the user to acknowledge the
alarm situation.
The unit reacts to an event in any one of the following ways:
Alarms
–
A beeper sounds.
–
A status message is displayed.
–
An alarm icon is displayed.
–
The border around a cameo changes color to red.

indicator flashes.
Background events
Triggers and alarms can change background tasks that a user may not notice. Unit responses
that are not visible to the user are, for example, a change in recording speed, the activation of
the output relay, and event logging. The unit can also be configured to record upon the
activation of an alarm input. A trigger may change the way the camera images are displayed on
the monitors without requiring intervention.
