Grant of License
This agreement between Sensormatic and you permits you to use the Software you purchased. Once you
have purchased the number of copies you require, you may use the Software and accompanying material
provided you use no more than the licensed number of copies at one time. The Software is only licensed for
use with specified Sensormatic supplied equipment. If the Software is protected by a software or hardware
key or other device, the Software may be used on any computer where the key is installed. If the key locks
the Software to a particular System, the Software may only be used on that System.
Other Rights and Limitations
•
A demonstration copy of the Software is considered purchased and is covered by this license
agreement.
• You may not de-compile, disassemble, reverse engineer, copy, transfer, or otherwise use the Software
except as stated in this agreement.
• The hardware/software key, where applicable, is your proof of license to exercise the rights granted
herein and must be retained by you.

• You may not sub-license, rent or lease the Software, but you may permanently transfer the Software to
another party by delivering the original disk and material comprising the Software package as well as
this license to the other party. Initial use of the Software and accompanying material by the new user
transfers the license to the new user and constitutes the new user’s acceptance of its terms and
conditions.

Installation and Operating Instructions
Limited Warranty
Sensormatic warrants that the recording medium on which the Software is recorded, 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 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 diskette or 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.

Installation and Operating Instructions
ACCESSORIES
Intellex USB Floppy Drive
The USB floppy drive can be used to save Intellex configurations, single .BMP images
from the image tools feature, and to install software patches and upgrades.
Intellex USB CD-RW Drive
The USB CD-RW drive can be used to export video clips to CD-R or CD-RW disks or
to update the Intellex software.
Intellex USB/RS-232 4-Port Expander
The 4-Port Expander can be used to add serial ports to the Intellex for the recording of
text data.
Intellex Speakers
The speakers can be used to listen to recorded audio information or to monitor live
audio activity.
Dome Control
Camera control can take place locally at the Touch Tracker or remotely at a Network
Client workstation. Refer to the Network Client operating instructions for details.
Concurrent local and remote operation can cause control conflicts. The camera will
respond to the last control action performed whether that is at the Touch Tracker or
the Network Client. Remember that unexpected actions of a camera can be the result
of another user trying to control the same camera.
Use of the Touch Tracker version 2.x firmware can minimize control conflicts. This
firmware permits concurrent control of two different cameras connected to the same
Touch Tracker, one locally and one remotely. Conflicts can still occur if the same
camera is being controlled.

Working with Schedule Segments
Schedule segments define how the unit processes images from any camera at any
time. The unit can record at all times or only during alarms or filter events. Recording
can even be disabled during certain hours.
This explains how the mouse pointer changes according to the function you are
performing and where the mouse pointer is on the screen.
The cursor pointer changes to this when copying a camera
segment.
The cursor pointer changes to this while you are defining a new
segment.
The cursor pointer changes to this when moved over the start or

The cursor pointer changes to this if it is dragged to an area of the
screen without a camera name.
Defining a New Segment
1. Select the appropriate screen: Weekday, Weekend or Holiday.
2. Select the segment type: Active, Alarmed or Disabled.
3. Move the mouse pointer to the schedule line for the camera. An indicator appears

ALARM OPERATION
This chapter describes alarm operation on the Intellex unit. The Intellex unit detects
and responds to four types of alarm events.The following is a list of the topics
discussed in this chapter.
• Mechanical Alarms
• Alarm Review Screen
• Alarm Connectors
NOTE: The unit only processes alarm events for cameras that are being recorded
when the alarm occurs.
Alarm Operation
147
Installation and Operating Instructions
MECHANICAL ALARMS
A mechanical alarm occurs when there is a contact closure or polarity change at any
alarm input.
The alarm connector provides one alarm input and one alarm output for each camera.
The inputs can be connected to any device equipped with either a contact closure or
TTL/CMOS standard output. The outputs can be connected to any device, and can
operate as a contact closure or TTL/CMOS standard device.
Alarm input polarity can be set to either Active-Low or Active-High (see Alarms
Option on page 86). All alarm outputs are automatically set to a low (inactive) state
when starting up the system.
When the unit detects a mechanical alarm:
1. The unit energizes the alarm output associated with the camera.
2. The unit records images from the alarm camera at the alarm record rate and
quality setting.
3. The unit adds the alarm camera to the alarm group and records its images more
often than nonalarm cameras (see Alarm Groups on page 152).
4. The unit lights the Alarms indicator as soon as the alarm is cleared.
5. The unit flags the video segment in the image database with the name of the alarm
input.
6. If the Pre-Alarm Duration option is selected, the unit saves the pre-alarm images
to the image database (see System Setup on page 17, and Use Custom Schedule on
page 58).
7. If the Alarm Message Display option is selected:
a. If the camera is not currently displayed or is displayed in the camera
sequencing window, the unit switches the live display monitor to the 4x4
format and overrides the display settings for the duration of the alarm (see
Display Option on page 89).
b. The unit displays ALARM over the camera image.
c. If the Latch Messages option is selected, the unit enables the Clear Latched
button on the Utility Options screen (see Utility Options on page 108).
d. The unit suspends camera sequencing on the live display monitor.
8. If the Unit Alarm Out option is selected, the unit energizes alarm output 16.
The unit remains in the alarm state until ALL of the following occur:
a. All alarms, including mechanical, are released.
b. The Duration time elapses.
148
Alarm Operation

Once the unit exits the alarm state, it returns to the previous display mode, record
mode and quality settings.
If the Latch Messages option is selected, the unit displays the alarm message until
the Clear Latched button on the Utility Options screen is clicked (see Utility Options
on page 108).
Live Filter Events
The Intellex live filters enable the unit to respond to specific activity at specific
cameras. When configured, these filters help the unit record important activity and
ignore unimportant activity.
A live filter event occurs when the live filter is triggered by some activity in the
camera’s field of view.
When the unit detects a live filter event:
1. The unit energizes the alarm output associated with the camera.
2. The unit records images from the alarm camera at the alarm record rate and
quality setting.
3. The unit adds the alarm camera to the alarm group and records its images more
often than nonalarm cameras.
4. The unit lights the Alarms indicator as soon as the alarm is cleared.
5. The unit flags the video segment in the image database with the name of the live
filter.
6. If the Pre-Alarm Duration option is selected, the unit saves the pre-alarm images
to the image database
7. If the Alarm Message Display option is selected:
a. If the camera is not currently displayed or is displayed in the camera
sequencing window, the unit switches the live display monitor to the 4x4
format and overrides the display settings for the duration of the alarm (see
Display Option on page 89).
b. The unit displays ALARM over the camera image.
c. If the Latch Messages option is selected, the unit enables the Clear Latched
button on the Utility Options screen (see Utility Options on page 108).
d. The unit suspends camera sequencing on the live display monitor.
8. If the Unit Alarm Out option is selected, the unit energizes alarm output 16.

Alarm Operation
151
Installation and Operating Instructions
Alarm Groups
During normal operation, the Intellex unit samples cameras in camera number order.
Each time through the sequence, the unit samples one image from each camera
(unless disabled). For example, with eight cameras connected, the sequence is:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
1
2
3
4 ...
When an alarm is detected, the unit increases the number of samples from the camera
associated with the alarm. It adds the camera to the alarm group. After the unit
samples each nonalarm camera, it samples from all cameras in the alarm group. As
alarms start and stop, cameras are added to and removed from the alarm group.
For example, if alarms are detected at inputs 5 and 8, the unit creates an alarm group
containing these two cameras. The sequence changes as shown below. The group is
repeated after each nonalarm camera.
5
8
1
5
8
2
5
8
3
5
8
4 ...
Suppose alarm input 8 clears. The unit drops camera 8 from the alarm group, but
camera 5 is still in the alarm group.
Suppose an alarm is now detected at alarm input 2. The unit adds camera 2 to the
alarm group, which still includes camera 5.
The Intellex unit processes multiple alarms in the order they occur.

USB/RS-232 4-PORT EXPANDER-RDVEXP01
The Intellex USB/RS-232 4-Port Expander can be used to add serial ports to the
Intellex for the recording of text data.
Installation
Insert the USB cable of the port expander into one of the USB connectors in the rear of
the Intellex. It is not necessary to exit Intellex. The unit will recognize the new device
and a New Hardware Found message will appear briefly. The port expander is ready
to use.
After the Intellex RS-232 4-Port Expander has been installed, you may continue with
the setup of the text recording interface.
SERIAL INTERFACES AND TEXT RECORDING
Internal COM ports
Intellex units with version 2.1 hardware or later have only one external serial port. It
should be configured as COM 2 and is dedicated to the Touch Tracker interface. (The
motherboard BIOS parameters for COM 2 are I/O Address=2F8, Interrupt=IRQ3).
Any additional serial ports must be added by means of a USB serial port expander.
Premier model Intellex 3.0 includes a RS-232 adapter that provides a single serial port
connection.
Port Expanders
The serial port expander supported by Intellex is the Edgeport/4 by Inside Out
Networks. The Sensormatic part number is RDVEXP01.
Port Assignments
The serial port assignment is made by the Edgeport driver. It assigns COM ports
based on the serial number of the port expander. This means that if you plug one port
expander in and it is assigned serial port numbers COM 3-6, and you remove it and
plug in another port expander, it will then be assigned serial port numbers COM 7-10.
Always keep the same port expander with the same Intellex. If you switch Edgeports,
you must then renumber the COM port setup in Intellex.
Installation and Use of Accessories
159
Installation and Operating Instructions
COM Port Assignments
These are the COM port assignments that are expected by Intellex.
COM 1
Not used (disabled in the BIOS)
COM 2
Touch Tracker interface for “MUX” control of Intellex
and dome control from Network Client. On rear of
Intellex unit.
COM 3, COM 4
These COM ports are assigned to either the external
USB modem or the port expanders. The external USB
modem must use COM 3 or COM4 to be used with
pcAnywhere.
COM 5
This COM port is used by the internal modem if it is
installed. If there is no internal modem, it is assigned
to the port expander.
COM 6 And higher
Assigned to port expanders.
Since the internal and external modems have specific port number requirements,
always install the modems before installing the port expanders. Adding the modem
later will result in reassignment of the serial port numbers. Follow this procedure:
• Install all modems. Power up the Intellex unit and allow Windows to assign COM
port numbers.
• Install the port expander(s). Allow Windows to assign serial port numbers.
• Shut down the Intellex unit and restart. The port numbers should be stable after
this.
Connecting Text Sources
Data from a text source will be recorded by Intellex if the following conditions are
met:
• The Intellex application must be able to open the COM port.
• Serial data must be present for the text stream to be listed in the playback text box.
To set up text recording on the Intellex unit follow these steps:
1. Install all desired serial devices as described above. Be sure to reboot the unit to
minimize the possibility that serial ports may be reassigned the next time the
Intellex unit starts.
2. In the Intellex application, click Setup, then Text. Click Add to set up a text stream
for recording.
160
Installation and Use of Accessories
Intellex® DV8000 Digital Video Management System
3. Type in a name for the text stream and select a COM port. Do not select
“Unselected” or any COM port less than COM 3.
4. Set up the other serial port parameters to match the data source.
5. Click the Camera Associations tab and select the camera(s) that will be associated
with this text stream.
NOTE: Text will only be recorded when the associated cameras are recording video.
6. Click OK to close the window and save the settings.
Connecting the Data Source
The data source must be connected to the COM port configured in the Intellex
application software and the data must be present on Pin 2 of the DB-9 connector that
plugs into the port expander. If the data is on Pin 3, then a null modem adapter or
cable must be used.
To verify the correct COM port, connect to the port expander and send some data
while Intellex is recording. The indicator on the port expander will flash amber when
data is received by Intellex. If it does not flash amber, try a different input.
Verifying Data Recording
To verify data has been recorded, playback the video from the associated camera.
Click the “A” button to open the text display window. The text stream name should
be in the box at the bottom of the text window.
NOTE: The text stream name is not displayed in this box until some text data is
actually recorded. You should be able to use the image playback controls
and/or the text scroll controls to see the text data. It is a good idea to restart
the Intellex and verify that it is still recording on the same ports. You do not
want a power failure or watchdog timer reset to result in lost data after
restarting.
Port Expander Indicators
The front of the port expander has an illuminated indicator that is used to display
status. The display states are:
Green (slowly flashing)
USB connection to the Intellex unit has been
established. No serial data being recorded.
Amber (steady or
flashing)
Serial data is being sent to the Intellex unit.
Red
USB error. Expander is not ready to send data to the
Intellex unit.

Installation and Use of Accessories
RECORD CAPACITY
The following factors affect Intellex record capacity:
Record Rate
At higher record rates, the unit records more images
and uses more storage space, but the video segments
are more complete. At lower record rates, the unit
records fewer images and uses less storage space, but
the video segments are not as complete.
Activity Type
(minimal, casual,
moderate, intense)
Images from cameras with intense activity require more
storage than images with casual activity.
Number of Cameras
(1–8)
As the number of cameras increases, the storage space
required also increases.
Number of Alarms
As the number of alarm events increases, the storage
space required also increases.
Internal Data Storage
Each Intellex unit ships with at least 56 GB of internal
data storage. Options are available for additional
internal data storage. Internal hard disk storage
capacity is summarized on the System information
display from the About Intellex screen.
External Data Storage
Total recording capacity can be increased by installing
an external data storage unit.
Image Quality
(Super, Normal,
Extended Record)
Higher quality images use more storage space and
shorten record duration, but they also retain more
image data. Lower quality images use less storage
space and increase record duration, but they also retain
less image data.
Sensitivity Setting
(High Sensitivity,
Normal Sensitivity)
Recording images at high sensitivity uses more storage
space and shortens record duration, but it also retains
small, subtle changes between images. Recording at
normal sensitivity uses less storage space and increases
record duration, but it also ignores small, subtle
changes between images.
NOTE: Since each installation is different, your unit’s record capacity may vary.
Record Capacity
163
Installation and Operating Instructions
Use this section to estimate your unit’s record capacity. These estimates are based on
an installation with 8 continuously recording cameras, a record rate of 60 images per
second NTSC and 50 images per second PAL at normal sensitivity. These estimates do
not include alarm activity.
The following charts show the relationship between activity type, record capacity and
image quality. They identify the minimum and maximum hours per gigabyte for each
type of activity and quality setting.

Record Capacity
Intellex® DV8000 Digital Video Management System
Figure 14 — 50 ips Record Capacity Factors
To estimate the unit’s maximum record capacity:
1. Identify the image quality that best meets your needs: Super, Normal or
Extended Record.
2. Identify the general type of activity at your installation (minimal, casual,
moderate or intense).

ACTIVITY LEVELS
Minimal
A quiet room or hallway with an occasional occupant
or traffic. No motion due to wind, camera motion, or
camera noise.
Casual
A room or hallway with a couple of occupants or
frequent traffic. A sidewalk or street with some traffic
and little motion due to wind or light changes.
Moderate
A busy room with several moving occupants or a busy
hallway. Several people moving at a time. A street or
sidewalk with moderate traffic and/or some motion of
trees and bushes due to wind.
Intense
Extreme motion caused by camera motion or severe
camera noise. A panning dome camera or severe wind
motion in most of the image.
Multiply the number of hours by the size of the total data storage capacity (in
gigabytes). The total data storage capacity is the internal storage plus attached
external storage (if any).
This Intellex unit can store up to five hours per gigabyte and can record up to 190
hours.
