• UPGRADES AND UPDATES. Software Upgrades and Updates may only be used to replace all or part of the original Software.
Software Upgrades and Updates do not increase the number copies licensed to you. If the Software is an upgrade of a

agreement continue to apply.
Failure to comply with any of these restrictions will result in automatic termination of this license and will make available to
Sensormatic other legal remedies.
COPYRIGHT
The Software is a proprietary product of Tyco International Ltd. © 2009 and its Respective Companies. All Rights Reserved.
LIMITED WARRANTY
Sensormatic warrants that the recording medium on which the Software is recorded, hardware key, and the documentation provided
with it, will be free of defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of delivery
to the first user. Sensormatic further warrants that for the same period, the software provided on the recording medium under this
iii
license will substantially perform as described in the user documentation provided with the product when used with the specified
hardware.
CUSTOMER REMEDIES
Sensormatic's entire liability and your exclusive remedy under this warranty will be, at Sensormatic's option, to a). attempt to correct
software errors with efforts we believe suitable to the problem, b). replace at no cost the recording medium, software or
documentation with functional equivalents as applicable, or c). refund the license fee and terminate this agreement. Any replacement
item will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. No remedy is provided for failure of the Software if such
failure is the result of accident, abuse, alteration or misapplication. Warranty service or assistance is provided at the original point of
purchase.
NO OTHER WARRANTIES
The above warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. No oral or written information or advice given by Sensormatic, its representatives,
distributors or dealers shall create any other warranty, and you may not rely on such information or advice.
NO LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES
In no event will Sensormatic be liable to you for damages, including any loss of profits, loss of data or other incidental or
consequential damages arising out of your use of, or inability to use, the Software or its documentation. This limitation will apply even
if Sensormatic or an authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, Sensormatic does not
warrant that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error free. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. You
may have other rights that vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, or
the limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, so some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
GENERAL
If any provision of the agreement is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be severed
from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. This agreement is governed by the
laws of the State of Florida. You should retain proof of the license fee paid, including model number, serial number and date of
payment, and present such proof of payment when service or assistance covered by this warranty is requested.

Setting Up Network Client
Setting Up Network Connections
See your network administrator before you install Network Client and Intellex units on your
network.
Establishing a Network Connection
Bus speed, network traffic, network topology, packet size, and Intellex application(s) limit the data
sent across a network. Ensure your network infrastructure is appropriate for its intended use.The
minimum requirement is 10BaseT; 100BaseTX is preferred. Use CAT 5 for 100Base-TX
(100Mbps) operation.
• Configure the network for the TCP/IP Protocol.
• Manually assign an IP address to each Intellex unit and, if appropriate, each Network Client
workstation.
Note
Do not use a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server to assign the Intellex an IP
address.
Establishing a Dial Up Connection
See Appendix B: Dial Up Connections on page 105.
Network Identification
Each Intellex unit and Network Client workstation must have a unique computer name. Assign a
Workgroup name if the Intellex and Network Client are members of a workgroup.
See Connecting the Intellex to a Network on page 15 of the Intellex Installation and Configuration
manual for information about network setup for Intellex.

About Advanced Security
• Provides both local and remote secured access to Intellex units and to designated Intellex
features or resources.
• Requires that you install Policy Manager, which lets an administrator manage secured access to
Intellex units and to Network Client by means of user credentials for each user on the network.
The administrator uses Policy Manager to control users’ access to certain Intellex and Network
Client functions on the managed network.
When Advanced Security is installed, you must enter valid credentials (user name, password, and
domain name) each time you log in to Network Client or to access remote Intellex units.
Install Policy Manager on the same network as Network Client. If Policy Manager is not installed,
then None or Classic Security are the only other security options for controlling access.
For more information on Policy Manager, contact your American Dynamics dealer.

Description
Unit did not respond within one-minute
time-out period
The Network Client successfully sent the time synchronization command
to the units, but the unit did not respond within 1 minute.
Unit user does not have privilege to set
system time
An operator logged on to a different Network Client computer does not
have the Windows security privilege for changing the system date and
time. To synchronize that computer, an operator with this privilege must
be logged on during time synchronization.
Time synchronization already in
progress from another Network Client
The operator at another Network Client has already started a time
synchronization.
User currently updating unit date and
time
The user at the Intellex unit is updating that unit’s system date and time.
Clock synchronized; clock was off by
more than two minutes
The unit clock is > 2 minutes earlier or later than the Network Client’s
system clock. The unit may have experienced a critical clock problem.
Even though synchronization was successful, troubleshoot the indicated
unit.
Unit is already synchronizing time
Time synchronization that started from this Network Client is in progress.

3 Adjust the image quality with the slider.
• Adjust the slider to the left during high network traffic for higher video compression,
acceptable picture quality, and decreased bandwidth usage.
• Adjust the slider to the right during low network traffic for lower video compression, increased
picture quality, and increased bandwidth usage.
4 Select Motion Sensitivity
• Normal (faster): subtle changes in motion are less important; decreased number of
intermediate (delta) images transferred to Network Client; highest delta (change) threshold
setting; decreased bandwidth usage.
• High (slower): subtle changes are more important; increased intermediate (delta) images;
lowest delta threshold setting; increased bandwidth usage.
Slider
About Image Quality
The image quality setting depends on video quality, compression, and network bandwidth
requirements. Higher quality images are not as compressed, so they contain more details and are
larger. Larger images require more bandwidth for data transport.
As you increase the image quality setting, transmission is slower because there is more data to
transport. Use the High setting when picture quality in the live video output is more important than
the number of images received.
If you have a high traffic network, setting the image quality to Low increases the speed of Live
Video images. However, the quality of the image is lower because the image is more compressed
and smaller. Compressed images can be transported easier over a network. Use the Low setting
when picture quality in the live video output is not as important as the number of images received.
Configuration Guide 17
Configuring Network Client
About Video Motion Sensitivity
Motion Sensitivity determines the significance of subtle changes in motion in a camera’s view.
When a camera records an image between two major images, it is because something in the
image changed. If the unit is configured to note subtle changes, it is set to the lowest delta
(change) threshold.
18
Network Client
Configuring Network Client
Normal Motion Sensitivity:
• Allows subtle changes without recording many intermediate or delta images.
• Transfers fewer delta images to Network Client, so it does not use as much bandwidth as
high Motion Sensitivity.
High Motion Sensitivity notes small changes by recording more intermediate images and using
more bandwidth to transfer those images.
Use normal Motion Sensitivity when subtle changes are less important, and high Motion Sensitivity
when those changes are more important.
Variations in lighting conditions are considered motions. Exterior cameras recording from day to
night, or interior cameras recording areas with lighting turned on or off sense motion when the
lighting changes. Normal lighting is required for recording useful video. Adjust the filter sensitivity
for the lowest lighting condition that applies (e.g., low sensitivity for low lighting), and then tests the
filter to ensure its proper activation. You can use higher sensitivity settings when the lighting in the
area is consistent.
Setting the Display Configuration
Users can configure the display to select where on the screen, each camera’s video information

Term
Description
Maximum System Rate
The maximum recording rate in ips for this unit, also called the aggregate
recording rate. The maximum available system recording rate on a 16channel unit is 120 ips.
Maximum Rate
The maximum image rate in ips for a single camera. This rate is 30 ips
(NTSC), or 25 ips (PAL).
Minimal Rate
The lowest recording rate for any single camera under any
circumstances. This rate is 0.93 ips (NTSC), or 0.78 ips (PAL).
Configured Minimal Rate
The minimum rate you configured for a camera. It is any value between
the minimum rate of 0.93 ips (NTSC)/0.78 ips (PAL) and the Configured
Normal Rate.
Configured Normal Rate
The desired normal rate for a camera that is not in the alarmed state. This
is guaranteed only when there are no alarmed cameras.
If no cameras are alarmed, the normal rate equals the actual rate.
Configured Alarm Rate
The maximum alarm rate you configured for a camera. If no other
cameras are alarmed, the configured alarm rate equals the actual rate.
Actual Rate
The camera’s actual recording rate.
If there are no alarmed cameras, the actual rate is the configured normal
rate of that camera.
If the camera is the only alarmed camera, its actual rate is the configured
alarm rate.
If other cameras are alarmed, this rate is not guaranteed.

Setting an IP Source’s Record Rate
In Intellex IP, camera resolution is measured in CIF (Common Interchange Format).
CIF
Record Rate
1 CIF = 320 × 240 pixels
<480 ips
2 CIF = 640 × 240 pixels
<240 ips
4 CIF = 640 × 480 pixels
<120 ips
The higher the camera resolution, the more system resources are consumed. A camera at 4 CIF
resolution uses 4 times the system resources as a camera at CIF resolution. If all cameras are
configured at CIF resolution, the system lets the user configure an aggregate rate of 480 ips; if all
cameras are configured at 4 CIF resolution, 120 ips.
If all cameras are not at the same resolution, determine the maximum aggregate rate:
1 Divide 480 ips by the number of connected cameras.
2 For each connected camera, divide the value from step 1 by:
• 1 if the camera is in CIF mode
• 2 if the camera is in 2 CIF mode
• 4 if the camera is in 4 CIF mode

Using CSV Files to set up an Intellex
Instrument setup and control can be performed via a comma separated value (CSV) file. The
inventory of instruments can be maintained in an Excel spreadsheet and then converted to a .csv
file.
To use this feature, a CSV file (named RemoteConfg.csv) needs to reside in the same location as
the RemoteConfig.dat file. When the .csv file is present, you cannot add, edit or delete
instruments. Instead, these actions are performed by modifying and updating the
RemoteConfg.csv file. In order for any changes to the .csv file to take place, Network Client needs
to be restarted.

Network Client Remote Management Software
Overview
Network Client’s Remote Management Software offers Matrix and CCTV Keyboard integration as
a separately licensed product extension. This feature lets you view as many as 64 cameras
simultaneously which, combined with keyboard-based control, gives you the efficiency of a virtual
matrix.
Instead of having to number and arrange your cameras separately by each Intellex on your video
security system, Network Client allows you to organize the cameras in a single on-screen group
using a consecutive numbering system. This is accomplished by interfacing to a matrix keyboard
via a local serial port. This extension to Network Client integrates the 1024 American Dynamics
matrix switch that allows keyboard control of the switch or the virtual switch on the Network Client.
Network Client version 4.3 supports standard keyboard functionality, including camera call-ups,
control and playback, in addition to advanced features such as salvos and tours.
Dome programming is supported via the dome's on-screen menu as well as via direct
programming from the keyboard. This applies to the AD2088, AD2089, MegaPower®
ControlCenter™ 200 and 300, MegaPower® ControlCenter™ 1100 and ADTTE Touch Tracker®
Controller keyboards from American Dynamics.
For more information about licensing, contact your American Dynamics Sales Representative.

Network Client Remote Management Software
Remote Management Software Features
Keyboard Control
From a single keyboard, you can control the virtual matrix on the Network Client or the analog
matrix based on monitor selection.
Each live display on the Network Client has a configurable range of 16 virtual monitor numbers.
These ranges must not overlap each other but are otherwise unrestricted (as long as they are
under the 4 digit limit of the keyboards). Network Client uses these virtual monitor numbers to
determine what commands it responds to directly and what commands are forwarded to the
analog matrix.
Camera pseudo numbers need to be manually synchronized such that the pseudo numbers are
the same on the analog switch and the virtual switch.
Virtual monitor numbers are displayed as overlays on the live display panes.
Two-way Keyboard Support
Communications with the supported keyboards are two-way in that commands are not only sent
from the keyboard to the Network Client, but the Network Client also provides feedback to the
keyboard as to the success or failure of the action taken. Support for this varies from keyboard to
keyboard. At a minimum, the keyboard beeps if you enter a command in error. Most keyboards
support updating of the camera pseudo-number on the display of the keyboard when successfully
entered.
Camera Control
Camera control from a keyboard fully supports keyboard-PTZ functionality with the exception of
auxiliary control.
Latency may be an issue when the camera is controlled via Intellex; when the camera is controlled
directly via analog matrix, latency does not occur.
Analog Playback
You can configure playback to be displayed full screen on an analog output (a video card that
supports analog output is required).
In the analog output configuration, you can also connect the playback to an analog matrix input, in
which case an input number is used to switch the analog playback to the currently selected analog
matrix monitor (it fails with the keyboard issuing a beep if the current monitor is a virtual matrix
monitor).
Matrix Dome Control
If Matrix Integration is licensed and enabled, you can configure dome cameras to use the analog
matrix for dome control rather than the Intellex. This is done by forwarding dome control
commands directly to the switch after switching the camera in question to a pre-defined monitor.
Matrix Dome options do not display if Matrix Integration is not enabled or licensed.
Incident Control
When in playback, the record button on the keyboard triggers the current segment to be saved as
an incident to the pre-configured database and category.
Configuration Guide 67
Network Client Remote Management Software
Matrix Keyboard
Playback of a Pre-defined Duration of Video
To play video from a camera, select the camera on the active monitor and press Play. A popup
Playback window appears in which video for that camera plays, starting at the pre-defined time
interval. Pause, Play, Fast Forward, and Rewind behave as expected within the pre-defined time
window. Frame Forward and Frame Rewind are done by pressing Fast Forward and Rewind while
the video is in pause mode.
Camera Call-ups
Matrix keyboard control of camera call-ups works by entering the camera number then pressing
the CAM button. This may optionally be preceded by entering the monitor number and pressing
the MON button.
• For control of Network Client, the monitor selection is used to determine which pane the video
will be called up to, and the camera selection determines the video source. If no monitor has
been entered, the default is monitor 1.
• Each live display window is assigned 16 monitor numbers regardless of how many panes it has
in its current layout. For example, suppose the Network Client has two VGA screens, each
running a live display. VGA-1 is using a 3x3 layout and VGA-2 is using a 1x1. In this case, VGA1 display is assigned virtual monitors 1-9, and VGA-2 is assigned monitor 17. Numbers 10-16
are reserved for VGA-1 but not used in a 3x3 display. If you change the layout of VGA-1 display
to 4x4, it is assigned virtual monitors 1-16; if you change the layout of VGA-2 display to 4x4, it
uses virtual monitor numbers 17 through 32.
• The virtual monitor numbers assigned to a display surface are optionally displayed in the upper
left corner of each pane.
Salvo Call-ups
Salvo call-ups are done by pressing the salvo pseudo-number, then pressing the Salvo button.
Network Client responds by changing the layout of the live display corresponding to the current
monitor, then calling up the correspondingly numbered salvo, which causes the appropriate tours
to start, if any, and requests the desired camera control presets and patterns. The salvo starts on
the currently selected monitor (pane).

Motion Exception Issues

Recommendation
Background motion
Select a location with no continual background motion. For example, do not
place the camera facing trees moving in the wind, a high traffic roadway, a
TV monitor.
Lighting
Avoid sudden lighting changes, such as turning lights on or off, that may
trigger alarms.
Avoid low light conditions and harsh shadows.
Avoid poor lighting, which causes too little contrast between an object in the
foreground and its background.
Objects moving too fast
Because the Intellex software interprets changes in an object’s position over
time, a fast-moving object may not be tracked accurately.
Reflections
Place the camera so that there are no reflective surfaces in the camera’s
view if possible. Reflections of objects in windows, mirrors or other surfaces
are interpreted as another object.
Occlusions and
obstructions
Set up the camera so that no objects totally block (occlude) objects of
interest in the field of view.
When a person walks behind something that totally blocks the camera’s field
of view, Intellex tries to predict where the person will be next based on his
speed when last seen by the camera. The more a person is blocked in the
camera’s field of view, the more errors the Intellex may commit. Therefore, a
man walking behind a tree at a constant velocity can be easily tracked, but a
man walking behind a building at a changing speed may be lost by the
Intellex.
An obstruction may partially block the field of view; for example, a man
walking behind a car may appear to be missing his lower body, and the
Intellex will notice that the size of the object that it was tracking has suddenly
undergone a change.
When you configure alarms based on the size of an object, note that even a
partial or temporary obstruction may lessen the reliability of alarms.
Camera recording rate
Ensure that the camera’s recording rate does not drop below 7 ips or the
reliability of object tracking is reduced.
Moving objects in the
camera view on startup
Tracking quality is reduced until the Intellex unit can determine which
elements are in the background and which are moving objects.
Camera location
In a busy room, place the camera up high, with a 45-90° line of sight to the
floor. If possible, aim the camera toward a motionless background.
Camera is too close to
objects
Place the camera as far away as possible from the objects that you wish to
track. A moving object must fit within 25% of the screen. Large objects are
common in indoor scenes.
Network Client
Troubleshooting
Environmental
Condition
Recommendation
Excessive video noise
Avoid poor video feed or excessive signal boosting, which significantly
reduce tracking quality.
