Introduction
The following guide will help you walk through the steps necessary to integrate Louroe
Electronics (www.louroe.com) intercom equipment into DVTel’s Latitude NVMS
software. This guide outlines steps for the following Louroe equipment:
•
•
AOP-XD - Audio Tranceiver Interface
AOPSP-PB - Bi-directional Speakerphone with Pushbutton
Note: Other Louroe speakerphones can be substituted, as long as some means is provided to
initiate a call if required.
1.1
Basic Layout
•
Below is the basic layout for connecting the Louroe intercom to the DVTel system.
Please follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the interface and
speakerphone. In the below diagram, the red cable will connect to the camera/encoder
“Audio In”, the white cable will connect to the camera/encoder “Audio Out”, and the
shields from both cables should be tied together and connected to the “Audio GND” on
the camera/encoder. The cable from the pushbutton should be connected to the “Alarm
IN” and “Alarm GND” on the camera/encoder.
1.2 Microphone Setup
•
In the Admin Center, go to the Physical View, and locate the microphone input for the
camera/encoder and in the General tab, set the following parameters:
Sampling Rate
Data Format
Channel
Input Type
Audio Mode
8Khz
PCM
Mono
Line In
Full Duplex
Check the Mute Audio on Start checkbox, and set the volume for about 50%.
•
Highlight the camera, and in the Linked tab, select the microphone and speaker that will
be linked to this camera when the camera is in the alarm tile in Control Center.
1.3 Alarm Setup
•
•
•
If an alarm is desired, go to the System Settings view, right click on Alarm Types, and
select “Add Alarm Type”.
In the General tab, edit the name as desired, select pre-alarm coverage, dwell time,
priority, etc.
In the Cameras tab, select the camera that will respond to the alarm, and select the View
Live, Record and Playback options as desired.
•
In the Recipients tab, select which users that the alarm will be routed to.
•
Locate the desired input pin and in the General tab, set the Normal State to whichever
position you prefer (in my case, Open).
•
In the Actions tab, on “Pin set to abnormal”, pick “Trigger Alarm”, and select the desired
alarm from the Available Items box and move it into the Attached Items box.
1.4 Testing The Intercom System
•
Open Control Center and insert the camera in a tile. In the lower right hand corner, you
should see the icons for the microphone and speaker.
•
You should be able to communicate with the intercom station using the local microphone
and mouse by un-muting the speaker, clicking on the microphone icon to talk, and
releasing to listen.
Arm a tile for alarms, and have someone press the pushbutton on the intercom station.
The associated camera should appear in the alarm tile, and you should be able to
communicate with the speaker station as above.
When finished, acknowledge the alarm.
