Introduction
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
Chapter 1:
Introduction
The Alarm Monitoring application displays information about individual alarms
and events as they occur. Operators can acknowledge alarms and manually
change the status of devices as well as monitor video and launch Guard Tours.
With the correct permissions, Operators can also perform a variety of
administrative tasks such as adding, modifying, deleting and tracking
cardholders, visitors and assets as well as print badges.
Conventions Used in this Documentation
•
Where a term is defined, the word is represented in italics.
•
Field names, menus and menu choices are shown in bold.
•
Keyboard keys are represented in angle brackets. For example: <Tab>.
•
Keyboard key combinations are written in two ways:
<Ctrl> + <Z> means hold down the first key and press the second
<Alt>, <C> means press the first key, then press the second
•
Window buttons on the screen are represented in square brackets. For
example: [OK].
How this Document is Organized
The Alarm Monitoring User Guide is divided into three sections: the System
Administrator Procedures section, the Operators section and the Advanced
Operator Procedures section.
The System Administrator section outlines the steps involved in setting up an
Alarm Monitoring station. Most of the procedures in these chapters reference
other manuals because they cannot be performed in the Alarm Monitoring
application.
The Operator Procedures section focuses on procedures to monitor alarms,
monitor video, trace devices and execute commands.
The Advanced Operator Procedures section covers the administrative procedures
operators can perform in Alarm Monitoring. For example, adding cardholders or
visitors, printing badges, adding assets to the database and assigning assets to
cardholders.
Note:
Depending on the workflow of your company, some of the procedures
covered in this section may be considered System Administrator procedures.
revision 2 — 31
1: Introduction
Getting Started
Passwords
OnGuard® includes strong password enforcement, which checks the user’s
password against password standards. This functionality is designed to enhance
password security if single sign-on is not used. If single sign-on is used
(automatic or manual), OnGuard does not enforce password standards. For more
information on single sign-on, refer to Single Sign-On on page 35.
The system’s strong password enforcement also checks the Lenel database user’s
password when logging into applications. Database user passwords apply only to
Oracle and SQL databases. For information on changing your database password,
refer to the Accounts and Passwords chapter in the Installation Guide.
Password Standards
When creating a strong password keep the following guidelines in mind:
•
Passwords cannot be blank.
•
Passwords cannot be the same as the user name (e.g. SA, SA).
•
Passwords cannot be Lenel keywords.
•
Although not required, your password should contain numbers, letters, and
symbols. Spaces are also acceptable. (e.g. August 18, 2002).
•
OnGuard user passwords are not case-sensitive.
•
Database passwords conform to the rules of the specific database being used;
passwords in SQL Server and Oracle 11g are case sensitive. Passwords in
Oracle 10g and earlier are case-insensitive.
•
The maximum value for a strong password is 127 characters. The minimum
value is 1.
Notes:
For Oracle databases the following account username and passwords are not
allowed to be used together:
System and Manager
Internal and Oracle
Sys and Change_On_Install
Enable/Disable Strong Password Enforcement
Strong password enforcement is enabled/disabled in System Administration or
ID CredentialCenter. When you install OnGuard, by default strong password
enforcement is enabled. When you upgrade, by default strong password
enforcement is disabled. To manually enable or disable strong password
enforcement:
32 — revision 2
1.
Select System Options from the Administration menu.
2.
Select the General System Options tab.
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
3.
Click [Modify].
4.
Select or deselect the Enforce strong passwords checkbox.
Note:
If you disable the option to enforce strong passwords, you will continue to
receive a message stating your password is weak every time you log into an
application until you change your OnGuard password to meet the password
standards.
5.
Click [OK].
Error Messages
Read weak password messages/warnings carefully to avoid confusion about
whether your user password or database password is weak.
If you have a weak database password you will receive a warning every time you
log into any application, until you change your database password. Although it is
not recommended, you can acknowledge the warning and continue working in
the application. This table describes the password-related error messages that
may be generated and which password you need to correct.
•
To correct the database password, refer to the Accounts and Passwords
chapter in the Installation Guide.
•
To correct the user password, select a password that meets the standards
specified in Password Standards on page 32.
Warning message
Password
to correct
Database password violations: Your password is a keyword that is not
allowed. It is highly recommended that you change your password to
meet our minimum password standards.
Database
Your password cannot be blank. Please enter a password.
User
User password violations: Passwords cannot be the same as the user
name.
User
Your password is a keyword that is not allowed.
User
Accounts
Anyone who wishes to use OnGuard applications must enter a user name and
password in order to access the software. The System Administrator should
create a unique account for each user of the applications. The System
Administrator can also, for each user, create a list of permissions, which specifies
precisely which screens, fields, and buttons the user can access.
During initial installation of the application, default accounts are created. These
include:
User name
Password
Type
sa
sa
system account
revision 2 — 33
1: Introduction
User name
Password
Type
admin
sample
user
sample
badge
sample
These are provided as samples. You may change the passwords and use the
accounts, or remove them. The exception to this is the system account, SA. By
definition this account has permission to do anything in the system. A user with
system access has unlimited access to the application. You cannot delete or
change the system account except to modify the password, which you are
strongly encouraged to do as soon as possible to discourage unauthorized use.
The first time you log into OnGuard to configure the application, you should log
in as SA and your password should be SA.
Log In
This procedure describes how to log in without using single sign-on. For a
description of single sign-on, refer to Single Sign-On on page 35. To log in using
single sign-on, refer to Configure Single Sign-On on page 37.
1.
Click the Start button, select Programs > OnGuard 2012, and then select
the desired application.
2.
Your system may be configured to prompt you to select a database to log
into. If it is not, proceed to the next step. If it is:
3.
Important:

a.
In the Database drop-down, all ODBC system databases currently
defined on your computer are listed. Select the database that you wish to
use for your application.
b.
Click [OK].
The Log On window displays.
a.
In the User name field, type the user name assigned to you. When
logging in for the first time, your user name is SA.
b.
In the Password field, type the password assigned to you. When
logging in for the first time, your password is SA. Note that the
characters you type do not appear in the field. Instead, for each character
you type, an “*” displays. This is intended to protect against
unauthorized access in the event that someone else can see the screen
while you type.
After logging in for the first time, you are strongly encouraged to modify the
password for the system account as soon as possible to discourage
unauthorized use.
c.
In the Directory field, select the directory that you wish to log into. For
user accounts not using single sign-on, the default is “<Internal>.”
d.
Select the Remember user name and directory checkbox if you want
the values you just entered in the User name and Directory fields to
automatically be selected the next time that you log in.

Click [OK].
4.
Your system may be configured to prompt you to confirm that you are
authorized to use the application. To accept the terms of the authorization
warning click [Yes].
5.
If you are prompted to select a monitor zone:
Notes:
a.
Select a monitor zone from the drop-down list. If segmentation is
enabled, only the monitor zones for the segment that you logged into are
available.
b.
Select the Save as monitoring station assignment checkbox if you
wish to make the monitor zone selection the default assignment for the
monitoring station. This means when any operator logs into Alarm
Monitoring at this workstation, this zone will be monitored unless the
operator has monitoring zones assigned to them as a user or the operator
has permission to view multiple zones. This checkbox is only enabled if
the user has proper permissions.
c.
Select the Save as user assignment checkbox if you want to log onto
the same monitor zone EVERY time you log in. This is a persistant
assignment. You will not be prompted to select a monitor zone during
future log ins. This checkbox is only enabled if the user has permission.
To restore the prompt to select a monitor zone, simply remove the
selection from the User's Monitor Zone Assignment using System
Administration.
d.
Click [OK].
Monitor zone user assignments take precedence over monitoring station user
assignments.
For more information, refer to the Monitor Zones Folder chapter in the
System Administration User Guide.
6.
If you are prompted that the monitoring station you are logging into is set up
for event queuing:
a.
Select No, if you want all the queued events deleted.
b.
Select Yes, if you want all queued event for the monitor zone displayed.
Single Sign-On
Single sign-on simply means logging into OnGuard with the same user name and
password that you use to log into Windows or logging into OnGuard using an
LDAP user name and password for authentication. LDAP (Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol) is a software protocol that enables you to locate businesses,
people, files, and devices without knowing the domain name (network address).
Single sign-on allows scripts using the DataConduIT API to authenticate. These
scripts will be run under a Windows account. The account that is making the call
to the API can be obtained easily this way, and the script can be restricted to
revision 2 — 35
1: Introduction
those actions that the user is permitted to perform (using standard OnGuard
permissions).
Note:
The use of the explicit username and password for directory authentication
to Windows is strongly discouraged. It is recommended that you do not store
Windows passwords in the OnGuard system, since OnGuard uses reversible
encryption and Windows does not. If explicit authentication is required, you
should use an account that has view only permission to the directory in
question.
It is possible to assign both an internal account and one or more directory
accounts to a single user. Assigning both types of accounts increases the
flexibility of the system during the authentication process. If the directory service
is down or cannot be found from the workstation where the user is logging on,
that user can instead use the internal account. Using both types of accounts
means that you need to manage the internal account user names and passwords in
addition to managing the directory accounts.
Important:
Allowing a user to log on in multiple ways increases the probability that the
user's access to the system could be compromised. It is recommended that
you standardize on either internal or directory accounts, but not both.
There are cases where assigning both an internal account and a directory account
to a user may make sense. In a system where directory accounts are
predominantly used, you may also assign an internal account to a user who needs
to access the system from locations where the directory service is unavailable. If
internal accounts are predominantly used, you may want to assign a directory
account to a user so that the user does not need to enter in a password to log on.
Directory Accounts
To log into OnGuard using single sign-on, a user name, password, and directory
are required. A directory is a database of network resources, such as printers,
software applications, databases, and users. The following directories are
supported by OnGuard: Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Windows NT 4
Domain, Microsoft Windows Local Accounts, and LDAP.
Automatic and Manual Single Sign-On
When a user account is configured for single sign-on, the user can log into
OnGuard automatically or manually.
For example, with automatic single sign-on, users simply start OnGuard and they
are automatically logged in under their Windows account and directory.
With manual single sign-on, users must manually enter their Windows or LDAP
account information (user name and password). Users also have the option of
selecting a different configured directory.
36 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
If single sign-on is not used, users manually enter a user name and a password
that is different from their Windows or LDAP password. The directory is hardcoded to refer to the internal OnGuard user directory.
Notes:
Manual single sign-on can be used with the following directories: Microsoft
Active Directory, Microsoft Windows NT 4 Domain, and LDAP.
Automatic single sign-on can be used with every directory supported by
OnGuard except LDAP because it doesn’t provide all the account
information required.
Configure Single Sign-On
By default, user accounts do not use sign-on. To configure single sign-on the
System Administrator must add a directory and link a user account to the
directory.
Log In Using Automatic Single Sign-On
Automatic single sign-on is supported with Windows domain accounts.

If you attempted to log in and were unable to do so, make sure the following
conditions have been met:
–
–

–
–
–
–
You entered the correct user name and password for the selected
directory of a user with permission to use the application.
If the system is configured to display an authorization warning, then you
accepted the terms.
Verify your acs.ini file has the correct LicenseServer Host and Port
settings. The LS License Server service must be started on the specified
Host.
Log into the License Administration application to verify a valid license
is installed.
Software based licenses must be activated.
USB and Parallel licenses must have License Key Drivers installed.
If using single sign-on, ensure the pc user you are logged in as is linked
to an internal OnGuard user through an operational directory.
Assigning Directory and Internal Accounts to the User
It is possible to assign both an internal account and one or more directory
accounts to a single user. Assigning both types of accounts increases the
flexibility of the system during the authentication process. Meaning, if the
directory service is down or cannot be found from the workstation where the user
is logging on, then the user can use the internal account instead.
However, using both types of accounts means that you need to manage the
internal account user names and passwords in addition to managing the directory
accounts. Allowing a user to log on in multiple ways increases the probability
that the user's access could be compromised. For that reason, it is recommended
that you standardize on either internal or directory accounts, but not both.
There are cases where assigning both an internal account and a directory account
to a user may make sense. In a system where directory accounts are
predominantly used, you may also assign an internal account to a user who needs
to access the system from locations where the directory service is unavailable. If
internal accounts are predominantly used, you may want to assign a directory
account to a user for that user's convenience, so that the user does not need to
enter in a password to log on.
Switch Log On
Switch Log On is often used when multiple operators use the same Alarm
Monitoring station. Instead of logging out of the application operators can use the
switch log on feature. This simultaneously logs out the previous operator and
logs in the new operator.

Chapter 3:
System Administrator Procedures
The Alarm Monitoring application is not only designed to monitor alarms and
events, but it can also be used for a variety of administrative tasks such as adding
cardholders or visitors, printing badges, adding assets to the database and
assigning assets to cardholders. Depending on how the System Administrator
sets the cardholder and system permissions, users with access to Alarm
Monitoring can add, modify and delete cardholder, badge and asset information
as well as capture images and perform bulk operations.
This chapter assumes that an Alarm Monitoring Station has been physically set
up and focuses on the procedures the System Administrator should complete to
enable procedures to be performed by Alarm Monitoring Operators. Refer to the
OnGuard release notes to determine the PC requirements for an Alarm
Monitoring Station (client or server) and refer to the Digital Video Hardware
Installation Manual for physically setting up the hardware.
Note:
Additional System Administrator procedures may be included in the
Advanced Operator Procedures on page 195.

Display Option Procedures
Select Event Types to Monitor
If you have permission to edit alarm filters, you can apply an alarm filter to each
view in Alarm Monitoring, including the main alarm view, pending alarm view,
video verification view and any trace view. Each of these views can be
configured to filter out alarms independent of each other, however, only the main
alarm view filter is saved from session to session.
The alarm filter
determines which alarms
display based on the type
of event the alarm is
associated with.
For example, you may wish to display every alarm for a specific reader’s trace
window but you may not wish to display “Access Granted” alarms in the Main
Alarm Monitoring window. You can apply both of these filters to the different

5: Monitor Devices
Device Status
Alarm Monitoring is the only application that displays the status of hardware
devices. Alarm Monitoring obtains the status of a device from the
Communication Server, which in turn obtains the device status from hardware
controllers.
Status icons are located to the left of hardware device icon. There may be one
icon or a combination of icons, depending on the hardware status.
The status of the device is displayed after the entry in parentheses. If viewing the
icons on a map, the device status is displayed in parentheses after the icon or as a
tool tip when the mouse pointer is over the device icon. This is determined by
whether the Display Status on Maps option in the Options menu is checked.
Note:
To view a list of current hardware status icons in your database, as well as
add additional icons, open MapDesigner and select Edit > Icon Library.
Runaway Devices
When configured conditions cause a device to enter a “runaway” state, an alarm
is generated and the status information displayed next to the device icon is
updated to indicate it is a runaway device. A runaway device is characterized by
multiple alarms of the same type coming from the device during a user-defined
time interval. While the device is in the runaway state, the Communication
Server stops sending the runaway events to Alarm Monitoring stations.
When the configured conditions for the runaway state are no longer true, a
restored event occurs and the status information for the device is updated to
normal in the hardware tree.
Runaway device conditions are configured on the System Options > Runaway
Detection tab in System Administration.
Offline Hardware Devices
Important:
The Communication Server must be running in order for the proper offline
status to be reported in Alarm Monitoring.
Devices can be marked offline for two reasons: The connection may be broken or
it can intentionally be set offline. In Alarm Monitoring a different color “X” is
used to differentiate those items that are intentionally taken offline to those that
have a broken connection.
Broken Connection
A red “X” through an icon indicates a broken connection, meaning that the
software cannot communicate to the device. For example:
80 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
If a child device is offline then the parent device is examined. If both child and
parent are found to be offline then a red “X” is used for both devices. If only the
child device is offline then a yellow “X” is used for just the child device.
Although surveillance-only cameras are not associated with a physical video
recorder, they are assigned to a virtual “surveillance-only recorder” to maintain
consistency in the user interface. For example, the Alarm Monitoring hardware
tree below shows two surveillance-only cameras assigned to a virtually
surveillance-only recorder which serves only as a placeholder to group cameras.
A 16-bit OEM code can be programmed into the device which allows for a check
to occur in Alarm Monitoring. If the OEM code doesn’t match the hardware, an
Invalid ID transaction is generated and the device will not come online. The
system status tree will show the status as offline and list the invalid OEM code.
Marked Offline
Many items can be marked offline intentionally in System Administration. When
items are marked offline, a black “X” appears on those items in Alarm
Monitoring. A black “X” also appears for those items that are deleted from the
system. Deleted items are also marked with text that reads “deleted.”
A list of items that can be marked offline are: Alarm inputs, Cameras, Camera
Inputs, Camera Outputs, Elevator Dispatching Panels, Fire panels, Intercom
devices, Intrusion Detection Devices, Lenel access panels, OPC Connections,
Personal Safety Devices, POS Devices, Receivers, SNMP Managers, and Video
Recorders.
Items that show a black “X” if their parent device has been marked offline
include: Alarm inputs, Alarm Mask Groups, Alarm outputs, Alarm panels, Antipassback areas, Camera Inputs, Camera Outputs, Cameras, Elevator dispatching
terminals, Fire Devices, Fire Inputs/Outputs, Intercom stations, Intrusion Areas,
Intrusion Doors, Intrusion Onboard/Offboard relays, Intrusion zones, Local
function lists, OPC Sources, POS Register, Readers, Reader Inputs, and Reader
Outputs.
Map items need to be configured in MapDesigner to use the current state of the
device rather than a default icon for the proper icons to be shown on the map.
Video Failover Status
IP camera icons in the System Status Tree display the status of the primary and
secondary recorders if failover is enabled. For more information, refer to Click
[OK]. on page 92.

Procedures for Monitoring Devices
Update the Hardware Status
Hardware status information displays in several Alarm Monitoring windows.
When alarms and actions occur in the system, OnGuard software updates the
status information “live” for the affected hardware. Operators can also choose to
have the status updated on demand.
1.
Select Update All Hardware Status from the Control menu or by rightclick an alarm, access panel, alarm panel, alarm input, relay output or reader.
2.
The update all hardware status feature polls the currently selected device and
updates the hardware status of the associated devices. A message displays
when the update is complete.
Note:
Hardware Status Update Frequency can be used to set automatic updates.
You can set the frequency to No Updates, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 60 minutes (by
selecting Hardware Status Frequency from the Configure menu).
Perform a Device Test
Operators can perform a test on various devices in the system. A special test
mode operation is available for Input Groups, Reader Groups (Door Forced) and
Reader Groups (Access Grants). Performing this test allows you to see which
devices generated alarms and which ones did not.
82 — revision 2
1.
Display the Device Groups window by selecting View > Device Groups.
2.
Right-click the device group and select the Test Inputs, Test Door Forced
or Test Access Grants. If you select Test Access Grants, skip to step 7.
3.
A dialog box appears:
4.
You have two choices. Choose Show alarms only in Test Mode windows if
you do not want the results to show up on any Monitoring Station. Otherwise
choose Show alarms in all windows on all Monitoring Stations.
5.
Type in the duration (in minutes) of the test. This option is available only if
you selected Show alarms only in Test mode windows.
6.
Click [OK] to initiate the test.
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
7.
A Test Mode window launches. The top portion of the window lists all the
devices being tested and their current status (whether the test was successful/
unsuccessful). Devices that failed the test flash in red. The bottom portion of
the window displays a trace of the related alarms.
8.
When the test is finished, all the windows and monitoring stations resume
their normal display of alarms.
Note:
Device status is not available for Matrix Switchers or Account Panels.
Locate or Search for a Device
Operators can locate or search for a device in any window in Alarm Monitoring.
1.
Display any Alarm Monitoring window.
2.
Verify your cursor is in the window.
3.
Begin typing the name of the device. The system automatically scrolls to the
first occurrence of those letters in column one.
View the Last Connection Time for Dialup Panels
The Last connect time status is displays in parenthesis after each dialup panel. It
reflects the time of the panel’s last “Communications Restored” event and is
updated every time you disconnect from the panel.
To view a dialup panel’s Last connect time within Alarm Monitoring, locate the
dialup panel in the System Status window. In parenthesis after the name of the
dialup panel, the Last connect time is listed.
Last Connection Time Guidelines
The following are guidelines for the Last connect time status:
•
If a dialup panel has never connected, the Last connect time for it is “Never”.
•
If a dialup panel connects while Alarm Monitoring is not running, the Last
connect time for it is retrieved from the database when Alarm Monitoring
starts up again.
•
When a dialup panel is disconnected, the System Status window immediately
reflects the new Last connect time regardless of whether the
“Communications Lost” alarm is acknowledged or not.
•
When a dialup panel and Alarm Monitoring station are in different time
zones, the Last connect time displays both the local time and the panel time.
Download the OnGuard Database or Firmware
Operators can download the OnGuard database and/or firmware to devices via
Alarm Monitoring. Devices include access panels (LNL-500, LNL-1000, and
LNL-2000), dual interface Rdr1 readers, alarm panels, RS-485 command

IP camera icons in the System Status Tree display the status of the primary and
secondary recorders if failover is enabled. The camera icon is divided into two
parts, the first half indicates the status of the primary recorder, and the second
half of the icon indicates the status of the secondary recorder if redundancy is
enabled. If redundancy is not enabled, then there is not a continuous connection
to the secondary recorder and the status is not known or displayed in the second
half of the camera icon.
The following indicators are used:
•
Green box - indicates that the recorder and the camera are online
•
Red “X” - indicates that the recorder is offline
•
Yellow “X” - indicates that the recorder is online and the camera is offline
•

Video Monitoring Features
Buffering Streaming Video
Buffering of live and recorded video reduces the amount of network bandwidth
used by buffering the video on the client machine for playback. Video may be
viewed multiple times from the client rather than requesting the video from the
video recorder repeatedly.
This feature enhances live video mode by allowing the user to review live video
that has been cached without switching to recorded video. The live video toolbar
now displays a slider which can be used to navigate the cached video. The
current time of the video is displayed in the toolbar. The live video cache retains
a maximum of 10 minutes. The maximum size per cached video stream is 50 MB
of RAM. Live video can be paused, resumed, slowed, or accelerated. Live video
play will resume if video is paused or slowed down until it reaches the beginning
of the cache or if video is accelerated to the current time.
Buffering of recorded video occurs during playback. During video playback,
recorded video is cached in 10 minute increments.
To turn on the buffering of live and/or recorded video on a per workstation basis,
add the following lines to the [DigitalVideo] section of the ACS.INI file:
•
To turn on live: BufReader0=1
•
To turn on recorded: BufReader2=1
To turn buffering back off, remove the line(s) above or set the value equal to 0.
Browser-based VideoViewer
An alternative to using the video player is to use the browser-based VideoViewer.
The browser-based VideoViewer has some enhanced feature capabilities that are
not available in Alarm Monitoring. Some of these features include:
•
More flexible recorded video viewing options
•
Robust layout manipulation
•
Better joystick control with the use of buttons
For more information about these features, refer to the VideoViewer (Browserbased) User Guide.
The browser-based VideoViewer can be launched from Alarm Monitoring. The
Use browser-based VideoViewer option located in the right-click menus of
supported video devices can be used to enable this feature on a per workstation
basis. A check mark next to the menu option indicates that the feature has been
94 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
enabled. Once the Use browser-based VideoViewer option has been enabled, all
manual requests for live and recorded video will be displayed in VideoViewer.
To use the browser-based VideoViewer, the Web Application Server must be
fully installed and configured. For more information, refer to the Installation
Guide.
Camera Lookup
Camera lookup is used to locate a specific camera or multiple cameras by name.
The search permissions can be configured to include only the current monitor
zone or the entire system. To perform a camera lookup, right-click the monitor
zone or camera device group in Alarm Monitoring and select “Camera lookup...”
Searches initiated from the monitor zone will have the results highlighted in the
System Hardware Tree and searches initiated from a camera device group will
have the results highlighted in the Device Groups window. Searches that return
results outside of the current monitor zone or device group will be added to the
monitor zone or device group.
The extent of the search is limited by a user permission on the Users > Monitor
Permission Groups > Video sub-tab. To enable a user group to search for
cameras across the entire system, select the Camera lookup includes all
monitor zones check box. In segmented systems, users must have segment
access to the segment in which the cameras video recorder resides for it to appear
in the search results.
When a search is performed, the Camera Lookup dialog is displayed. The
Camera Lookup dialog message indicates whether the search will be performed
in the current monitor zone or across the entire system. The search is performed
by entering a portion of the camera name, wildcard characters (*) are not used.
For example, a search for “hall” would return cameras named “Hallway”, “Main
hall”, and “Hall stairwell” if they existed in the system.
If a single camera is found it is highlighted in the System Hardware Tree or
Device Groups window. If multiple cameras are found that match the string
entered, they are displayed in the Select Cameras dialog. Multiple cameras can be
selected for addition to the monitor zone by placing a check mark beside each
camera. The first selected camera will be highlighted and additional selected
cameras will be added to the monitor zone if they are not already included. This
addition to the monitor zone is temporary and restricted to the current Alarm
Monitoring session, camera additions are not saved per user or workstation.
Two-way Audio
Two-way audio enables communication between a monitoring workstation and a
camera equipped with a microphone and speakers. A workstation can
communicate with a single device or multiple devices simultaneously. A
microphone or a pre-recorded file can be used to send audio to the device.
Audio quality is dependent on the quality of the hardware. The two-way audio
streams are retrieved by the client directly from the camera. Audio sent to the
camera from the client is not captured by the video recorder and cannot be
recorded.
Two-way audio is enabled on the Audio tab of the Camera form in System
Administration. If the selected camera does not support two-way audio, the
Allow Two-Way Audio check box will be grayed out. Two-way audio devices
revision 2 — 95
7: Video Monitoring
may support full or half-duplex. Full duplex allows simultaneous two-way
communication, while half-duplex allows communication in one direction at a
time. The Two-Way Audio check box on the Users > Monitor Permission
Groups > Video sub-tab determines user permissions for the feature.
Two-way audio is controlled by the Two-Way Audio Communication dialog.
This dialog can be launched from the right-click menu of a supported camera in
the System Status Tree in Alarm Monitoring or from the Play menu in the video
player or VideoViewer. If the camera is either not configured or not supported for
two-way audio, the option will be grayed out. All devices are controlled from the
same Two-Way Audio Communication dialog. Each device can be controlled
individually or multiple devices can be controlled simultaneously by selecting
the check boxes of the devices and using the Multiple Selection Controls portion
of the dialog.
Note:
Two-way audio is not available if the camera is in MPEG4 mode.

exists in both events, so that parameter will be saved. But the abandoned object
event does not use “Threshold”, so that parameter will be ignored. Lastly, motion
detection did not use the “Duration” parameter, so the original duration value for
the abandoned object event will be used.

Zoom
Enables you to set pre-defined (50%, 100%, and 200%) zoom levels for the
video player.
Frame Rate
Sets the frame rate at which video is fed to the client side. By default, this value
is set to 10 frames per second (fps). If the source video is set at a higher fps,
video will be analyzed at the higher frame rate, but some frames will not be sent
to the client display.
This option is available when the client display is on a computer separate from
the video analysis service and the network connection between client and the
service is less than ideal. Reducing the frame rate will speed up processing
because the server side will not have to wait for the client to consume the video
frames it has sent.

Video Search Performance Requirements
A fast network, 100 Mbps or greater, is recommended between the site where
video is located and the site where the computer running the Video Player is
located. A fast network is recommended because video is analyzed/searched on
the client side, therefore the faster video can be transmitted from the server side,
the faster the search will be.
The hard drive speed on the server side must be able to support the number of
clients using the server. Clients include Video Players and archive servers.
A fast CPU on the client computer is also recommended. Generally, when the
network and server side hard drive are fast enough, the CPU on the client side
can be the bottleneck. A Pentium III based computer is required although a
Pentium IV computer is recommended.
Search Video/Audio
You can search video and audio using the Video Player or Event Configuration/
Search dialog. To search video using the Video Player, simply verify recorded
video is playing and select the start/end date. However, the Event Configuration/

Video Channel Configuration Dialog
Video channel configuration parameters can be applied to real-time
IntelligentVideo processing and to recorded video searches. The Video Channel
Configuration dialog is used to configure event parameters that apply to the
video channel itself and not the video processing algorithms. For example, if the
source video has a lot of motion, background learning time may need to be
increases so the video processing engine picks out static scene elements more
accurately.

7: Video Monitoring
Remote Monitor
Remote Monitor (RM), commonly referred to as “camera call-up”, is a video
monitoring application that can be run on any PC with or without OnGuard
installed. Configuration is performed in System Administration. The RM
application behaves as a slave to the Alarm Monitoring application which is used
to send video commands allowing the user to:
•
Launch video on the RM or Remote Monitor Group (RMG).
•
View status of the RMs in the System Hardware Tree and the RMGs in the
Device Group window.
•
Send matrix mode, camera selection, and video playback commands to the
RM.
•
Mute audio.
•
Drag and drop cameras onto the RM or RMG icon to start live video
playback.
•
Drag and drop alarms with associated video onto the RM or RMG icon to
start recorded video playback.
•
Activate Video Quality Enhancement algorithms for the RM or individual
camera channels.
•
Launch a local monitor window on the Alarm Monitoring workstation to
send commands performed in the window to the RM.
LNVR Security
Currently there is no secure communication between the RM and the OnGuard
software. The RM must use another method of authentication to an LNVR with
security settings because it cannot receive credentials from the OnGuard server.
To enable authentication with the LNVR, log on to the RM client with a
Windows user account that belongs to the LNVUsers group or configure RM to
run as a LNVUsers group member.
Note:
If anonymous DCOM is disabled on the LNVR, the Windows user logged on
to the RM client must be authenticated by the LNVR as Everyone or
Administrator.
Add Cameras to a Remote Monitor
Cameras can be added via multiple drag and drop operations.
The source of the camera can be one of the following:
•
Camera icon in the System Status Tree
•
Alarm icon that has associated video from the Alarm view
The target of the drag and drop operations can be one of the following:
114 — revision 2
•

Cameras that have been added to a Remote Monitor appear in the System Status
Tree below the RM and are referred to as video cells or Remote Monitor Cells
(RMC). RMGs are displayed in the Device Group window with lists of the RMs
that belong to each group. Cameras added to RMGs are added to each RM that
belongs to that group.

Aspect Ratio
By default the aspect ratio of video in the Video Player is pan and scan. In this
mode the video will occupy the entire cell and disregard the camera's default
aspect ratio.
To keep the default aspect ratio of the camera you must edit the
MatrixWideScreenMode parameter under the [DigitalVideo] heading of the
ACS.ini file to be: MatrixWideScreenMode=3.
This will default the aspect ratio to that of the camera. To change the aspect ratio
back to pan and scan change the MatrixWideScreenMode parameter to be:
MatrixWideScreenMode=4.
.
Daylight Saving Time
To search video that was recorded the hour before or after the Daylight Saving
Time changeover, you must perform two searches instead of one. For example, in
the Eastern Standard Timezone the Daylight Saving Time changeover occurs at
2:00 a.m. To view video that was recorded between 1:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m.,
perform two searches. For the first search, specify 1:00 a.m. for the start time and
1:59:59 for the end time. For the second search, specify 3:00:01 a.m. for the start
time and 3:30 a.m. for the end time. Use this same technique when exporting
video recorded during the changeover time.
Attempting to play or export a continuous video clip with a start time before 2:00
a.m. to an end time after 3:00 a.m. is not recommended and may result in
undesired playback behavior. For this reason, search and/or export recorded

Troubleshooting
If you receive the message: “The end time must not be before the start time.” set
the End time to 1:59.59 a.m. not 2:00:00 a.m.
If you receive the message: “The time requested is not available on the Video
Recorder, and could not be located on the Video Archive Server.” set the Start
time to 3:00:01 a.m. not 3:00:00 a.m.

Window Size Configuration
By adding lines to the [DigitalVideo] section of the ACS.INI file of the
local workstation, you can configure the layout of cameras in the matrix view.
You can configure different displays that depend on the total number of video
streams.
First, choose a base resolution for the window size calculations. This base
resolution should keep the same ratio as the most commonly used resolution. For
example, if the most commonly used resolution is 252x240, you can use a base
resolution of 176x120 for determining the window size.
The number located after PlayerWidth and PlayerHeight, <n>,
represents the number of video streams. The PlayerWidth<n> and
PlayerHeight<n> values should then be set to a multiple of the resolution
depending on the number of cameras you want to have in each row and column.
For example:
To calculate the values needed to display 8 video streams with a base resolution
of 176x120 with two cameras on each of four rows, multiply the width by two
cameras (176*2) and multiply the height by four rows (120*4). The following
lines would need to be added to the ACS.INI file:
PlayerWidth8=352
PlayerHeight8=480

Pan, Tilt, and Zoom
Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) control is supported by all Lenel video recorders.
Using PTZ you can control a camera’s movements and its ability to view images
at different ranges (zoom in or out).
Digital PTZ is provided for cameras that do not have PTZ support. Digital PTZ
allows the user to pan, tilt, and zoom throughout the camera’s field of view
without moving the camera.
PTZ presets are imported from NetDVMS recorders when the PTZ camera
channels are imported using System Administration. PTZ presets will have the
same name that is configured on the NetDVMS and will be read-only in the
OnGuard software. Imported NetDVMS PTZ presets are available from the
Video Player.
Configure PTZ with LNVR or LNVS Machines
LNVR and LNVS machines do not need a matrix switcher for PTZ control.
Therefore, these machines do not require special procedures in OnGuard for PTZ
control; simply configure the recorder and camera.
Configure PTZ with all other Digital Video Recorders
LDVR, Loronix, and Generic Video machines require a matrix switcher (either
real or virtual) for PTZ control. Complete the following in OnGuard to configure
PTZ control for these machines.
1.
Verify the default matrix switcher type settings in OnGuard are appropriate.
For more information, refer to “Modify a Matrix Switcher Type” in the
Matrix Switcher Folder chapter in the Digital Video Software User Guide.
2.
Add the matrix switcher. For more information, refer to the Matrix Switcher
Folder chapter in the Digital Video Software User Guide.

buttons to pan or tilt the camera, as well as, zoom in, zoom out, and focus the
camera. You can also press and hold the zoom, focus, or iris buttons to
achieve the preferred view.
•
Using the Mouse. After you click
to activate PTZ you can pan, tilt,
and zoom by right or left clicking your mouse in the video window. A left
click moves the camera toward the cursor. The camera keeps moving in that
direction until the mouse button is released. The camera moves with
direction and speed determined by the mouse position relative to the center
of the video window. If you move the mouse while holding the left button
down, the camera changes the direction and speed accordingly. If you rightclick in the top half of the screen the camera zooms in until you release the
mouse. If you right-click in the bottom half of the screen the camera zooms

out until you release the mouse. You can also use the mouse scroll wheel to
zoom in/out. Scroll up to zoom in and scroll down to zoom out. The farther
away from the center the mouse is the faster the camera moves.
Notes:
•
Using the Keyboard. After you click
to activate PTZ you can use the
keyboard arrow keys to pan, tilt, and zoom. The left and right arrow keys pan
the camera left and right. The up and down arrow keys tilt the camera up and
down. Hold the <Shift> key down while pressing the up or down arrows
zooms the camera in or out. They keyboard keypad may also be used to
control PTZ.
•
Using a Joystick. After you click
to activate PTZ you can use video
controllers, such as joysticks, to pan, tilt, and zoom. Iris and focus are also
available if supported by the joystick.
The Zoom, Focus, and Iris control buttons are only enabled if the
corresponding operations are supported by the camera in the current PTZ
mode.
The speed of the pan and tilt operation is calculated based on the distance
from the mouse click position to the center of the image along with the
current zoom position. If the camera is zoomed in, the same mouse click will
cause a slower movement. This functionality is subject to individual
cameras. If a camera doesn’t support getting the current zoom position, the
movement will not slow.
PTZ Options Dialog
The PTZ Options dialog is used to configure PTZ locking options and PTZ
control behavior. PTZ controls can be customized to send either relative,
continuous, or mixed commands with a single mouse click. The PTZ Options
dialog is available from the Options menu in Alarm Monitoring.

Chapter 12:
Monitor Alarms
When an alarm occurs, it displays in the Main Alarm Monitoring window. Each
alarm displays in its own row and is preceded by a colored dot. If alarms are
configured in the System Administration software so that they do not
automatically delete after they are acknowledged, an alarm icon will also display
beside the colored dot after it is acknowledged.
Alarm Icons
The following table is a list of the different types of alarm icons.

Pending Alarms Window
The Pending Alarms window is similar to the Main Alarm Monitoring window in
that it has the same menu options and toolbars. However, the Pending Alarms
window only displays pending alarms, which are alarms that are configured to
require an operator to take action. Pending alarms are highlighted in the Main
Alarm View and cause Alarm Sprites to be shown on graphical maps for the
devices associated with those pending alarms.
Alarms are configured to be pending alarms in the Alarm Definitions Form in
System Administration. If events configured here are set to be “active” then their
corresponding alarm will be highlighted in Main Alarm Monitoring window. For
more information see the Alarm Configuration Folder chapter in System
Administration.
An example of a pending alarm can be anything depending on the configuration
done in System Administration. Commonly though, higher need alarms such as a
door being forced open are reserved for this type of immediate action.
An initiating alarm is
automatically deleted
upon arrival of its
corresponding canceling
alarm. (e.g. Door
Forced Open/Door
Forced Open
Cancelled).
If the Pending Alarms Window is left open, the window automatically updates
itself. For example, when a pending alarm is acknowledged in the Main Alarm
Monitoring window, it immediately ceases to display in the Pending Alarms
window.
If a pending alarm is an initiating alarm that becomes physically restored and
must be acknowledged, it continues to display as a pending alarm until it is
acknowledged. If a pending alarm is an initiating alarm that becomes physically
restored but does not require acknowledgment, the alarm ceases to be a pending
alarm.
Like the Main Alarm Monitoring window you can determine the type of
information displayed about alarms through the Configure > Columns menu
option. However, you cannot filter the type of alarms displayed through the
Configure > Alarm Filter menu option. That is because the Pending Alarms
window is intended to summarize ALL pending alarms.

Column name
Description
Biometric Score
Lists alarms in order of biometric score. A biometric score is based on how well a biometric
access control reader matches a template in the database. By default, this sort option is not
enabled. To enable this sort option, the “Biometric Score” column must first be added via the
Configure > Columns menu option in Alarm Monitoring.
Card
Lists alarms numerically by the card number (badge ID), if the alarm is associated with a
cardholder.
Controller
Lists alarms alphabetically by name of the controller with which the alarms are associated.
The controller can be an access panel, fire panel, intercom exchange, receiver or receiver
account.
Controller Time
Lists alarms in order of controller time. The time includes the hour and minute and the date
includes the month, day and year. The display is based on the time zone setting selected in the
Control Panel of your computer. Typically the display is adapted to the country in which you
are located.
Device
Lists alarms alphabetically by name of the device (reader, alarm panel, intercom station etc.)
associated with the alarm. If the alarm originates at a reader, the reader name displays. If the
alarm originates at an alarm panel, the panel name displays. If the alarm originates at a video
recorder, the recorder name displays.
Input/Output
Lists alarms alphabetically by name of the alarm input, if the alarm is generated at an alarm
input.
Intercom Station
Called
Lists alarms in order of intercom station called.
Intrusion Area
Indicates the name of the area associated with the alarm. This is only displayed when the
controller reported an area number along with the alarm.
Line Number
Displays alarms in order of line number.
Priority
Lists highest priority alarms at the top of the list, followed by medium priority alarms, with
low priority alarms placed at the bottom of the list.
Time/Date
Lists alarms in chronological order. Within a given date (month, day and year) the alarms are
sorted by time, which include hours and minutes and optionally seconds.
Transmitter
•
To view time in seconds go to the Options menu and select (place a checkmark beside)
Display Seconds.

Lists alarms in order of transmitter. Transmitters are devices that generate either an RF or IR
(or both) signal that Visonic SpiderAlert receivers can receive. There are three types of
transmitters: fixed, portable (hand-held) and man-down.
For more information refer to the Personal Safety Devices Folder chapter in the System
Administration User Guide.
Transmitter Input
Lists alarms in order of transmitter input.
For any sort, the second level sort criterion is always Priority and the third level
criterion is always Time/Date. For example:
•
172 — revision 2
If you sort by Controller, all alarms associated with the same controller will
be sorted by Priority then by Time/Date.
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
•
If you sort by Priority, all alarms with the same priority will be sorted by
Time/Date.
•
If you sort by Time/Date, alarms with the same time (to the second)/date
will be sorted by Priority.
The sort criterion applies to the current window only. You can have one Main
Alarm Monitoring window and various Trace windows, each with a different sort
criterion. When you open a new Main Alarm Monitoring window, it is initially
sorted by Priority.

Chapter 14:
Muster Mode
Mustering is a licensed feature that identifies all cardholders in a hazardous
location during an incident. When an incident occurs (triggers an alarm)
OnGuard automatically goes into muster mode. System operators can also
manually initiate muster mode if necessary.
An incident is any situation/emergency where everyone in a hazardous area must
evacuate and convene at designated safe locations. Safe locations are defined by
exit and entry readers called muster readers. These readers are used purely for
registration purposes and not to actually gain access into the safe location.
When an incident occurs a muster report can be generated listing all personnel
within a hazardous location. During an incident cardholders must register in a
safe location by entering the safe location via a designated muster readers.
Registering in a safe location removes the cardholder from the muster report. In
this way the muster report becomes a report of all those who are on-site and have
failed to register in a safe location.
At the end of an incident system operators can remove all cardholders from the
safe locations; this is referred to as a muster reset.
Overview of Hazardous / Safe Locations
Hazardous and safe locations are defined in System Administration as a special
type of global APB (Anti-PassBack) area. APB is the prevention of a badge from
gaining entry in an access control system when that badge has either recently
entered the same reader or area (timed APB) or is not considered to be in the
proper area required to gain entry into a new area (area APB). Global APB is
APB enforced at a system level; areas span across multiple controllers.
Global APB can be soft APB or hard. Soft APB allows badges to enter areas that
would normally be denied due to APB violations whereas Hard APB does not.
Hard APB in Hazardous Locations
Soft global APB is required for hazardous locations but it is strongly
recommended that hard global APB be used when ever possible, because soft
global APB can invalidate the accuracy of muster reporting. For example the
accuracy of muster reporting will be compromised if a person swipes into a
hazardous location that they are already considered to be in or swipes out of a
hazardous location when they are not considered to be in it.
Note:
Soft global APB is required for hazardous locations but it is strongly
recommended that hard global APB be used when ever possible.

Soft APB in Safe Locations
Soft APB must be applied to safe locations. It is assumed that readers entering
safe locations are used purely for registration purposes and not to actually gain
access into the safe location. In other words it is not expected that a badge will be
presented to a reader to register at a safe location except during a muster mode.
Since readers entering safe locations are used purely for registration purposes and
not to gain access, any card transaction at a reader entering a safe location that
contains a badge ID will be used to register that badge as being in a safe location.
This includes granted with entry, granted with no entry, and access denied
transactions.
Note:
Soft Global APB is required for safe locations.
Enable Global APB
Hazardous and safe locations are segmented and can only belong to one segment
at any time. In order to enable mustering functionality in a given segment,
Global APB support must be enabled in that segment.
To enable global APB:
•
In a segmented system, open System Administration or ID CredentialCenter
and select the Global Anti-Passback check box on the Anti-Passback subtab of the Segments form in the Segments folder.
•
In a non-segmented system, open System Administration or ID
CredentialCenter and select Administration > System Options. Select the
Global Anti-Passback check box on the Anti-Passback form.
Mustering Inside Hazardous Locations
For every hazardous location there must be at least one safe location associated
with it, although multiple safe locations can be specified. In addition, multiple
186 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
APB areas can be defined as hazardous, and safe locations can exist within these
hazardous locations. Refer to the example below.
This site wants to do mustering inside of a hazardous location. They also want to
use APB within area 1 (hazardous location) and the two storage rooms (area 2
and area 3). To have APB control within the two storage rooms, area 2 and area 3
must be defined as separate areas.
When a Badge enters “Storage Room B”, the system will consider it to be area 3.
As far as APB goes, that person is not considered to be in area 1 (the hazardous
location). To function properly in this situation APB will not allow the badge to
re-enter area 1 through any reader other than a reader leaving area 3.
However, for purposes of mustering, a person in “Storage Room B” (area 3) or in
“Storage Room A” (area 2) needs to be considered as being in a hazardous
location since everything inside of Building 1 except the safe location (area 4) is
in the danger zone.
How can both of these be achieved? The answer is by considering the hazardous
location to be a combination of area 1 + area 2 + area 3. When determining who
is in the hazardous location, mustering will report anybody who is currently in
any one of those areas.
revision 2 — 187
14: Muster Mode
Only normal APB areas can be configured as being contained in a hazardous
location. Safe locations cannot, even though they may physically reside inside
the hazardous location. This is because Badges recorded in a safe location should
not be considered as being contained in the hazardous location.
General Constraints of Muster Mode
•
Note:
When controllers go offline, OnGuard is not able to provide accurate muster
and safe location reports since OnGuard will be unaware of access activity
and safe location registration that occurs while a controller is offline. When
the controller comes back online, OnGuard will be able to synchronize as
long as the controller queued up all event transactions while it was offline.
It is recommended that dual path panels and communications be deployed to
help avoid offline panel situations.
•
Note:
For the case of safe areas outside of hazardous areas, the muster exit readers
are unlocked providing free access into and out of the hazardous area.
Therefore access into and out of hazardous areas during an incident cannot
be accurately tracked. Registration at the safe locations is what is accurately
tracked.
For the case of safe locations inside of hazardous areas, entry and exit
readers are locked.
Recommendations for Optimal Reliability
•
The operators main concern during an incident is to change the mode of
muster exit readers to unlocked or locked and to run the muster and safe
location reports.
•
If a reader entering or leaving a hazardous location is configured with an
offline mode of “unlocked” or “facility code only” and that reader goes
offline with the controller, badges will be able to enter and/or exit the
hazardous location without a record being made. If an incident occurs before
these badges are swiped again (thus self-correcting the record of their
location), the muster report will not be correct. It may list badges as being in
hazardous locations when they are no longer there. Furthermore, it may not
list badges that are still in the hazardous location as being there.
The same issues can occur if, during normal times, badges are not forced to
swipe at muster readers to gain entry into and out of hazardous areas or if
188 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
physical barriers are not present to enforce one and only one physical entry
per card swipe.
Lenel recommends the following during normal times, at muster entry and
exit readers:
–
–
–
Require that all access to hazardous locations be performed through the
Access Control System. Utilize physical barriers such as full turnstile
and vehicle gates to enforce one and only one physical entry per card
swipe.
This implies that a scenario should not be allowed where people freely
enter a hazardous location and are then issued an access control badge
once inside. If an incident occurs just after they have entered the
hazardous location, there will be no record of them being in the
hazardous area. If personnel, such as visitors, must enter hazardous
locations without being issued a physical badge, they should first be
issued a “virtual” badge in the system and the interface to manually
place their badges inside of the hazardous location should be used.
When they visitors physically leave the hazardous location, the same
interface should be used to manually take them out of the hazardous
location. It is likely going to be simpler and more reliable to actually
issue real visitor badges that are used for access into and out of the
hazardous locations.
Utilize Hard APB enforcement into and out of hazardous locations.
Configure reader offline modes to be “Locked”. If personnel must enter/
exit the hazardous areas through doors whose readers are currently
offline with their ISC, record the badge movement via the interface for
manually moving a badge into a specific area.
Note, however, that if free access is required through muster exit readers
during muster mode, that the door strikes must be physically overridden
during muster mode via an external source to ensure free exit during
muster mode when readers are offline with their ISC’s.
Additionally, all host computers running OnGuard Communication Servers that
are communicating with Access Controllers in the same Global APB Segment,
must be time synchronized.
•
OnGuard will not automatically change the mode of muster exit readers to
unlocked or locked during an incident and back to a card mode at the end of
an incident. It is assumed an external override will be used to override door
strikes and physical barriers. For example if a fire system and access control
system are installed at a site, the access control system is typically not
depended upon to unlock the doors during a fire; the fire system overrides
the door strike.
•
Registration at safe locations is required after muster mode occurs even if
personnel are already in the safe location at the start of the incident.

Cardholders Folder Procedures
The following procedures pertain to every form in the Cardholders folder unless
otherwise noted.
Cardholder Search Capabilities
Before you begin searching cardholders you must have cardholder search
permissions enabled. For more information, refer to Cardholder Permission
Groups Form (Cardholder Sub-tab) in the System Administration or ID
CredentialCenter user guide.
In search mode, you can search on any combination of fields in the Visits folder,
including the Status search, Visit and Details forms. On the E-mail and Reports
forms, you can only search for the host name or visitor name.
Comparison Operators
Comparison operators are symbols that represent specific actions. You can refine
your search by prefixing search fields with a comparison operator. Refer to the
following table to identify the comparison operators you can use with different
fields.

Notes:
“Equal to” is the default comparison operator for numeric and drop-down
list fields.
If you type an equal to sign “=” in a field and nothing else, OnGuard will
search for records that have an empty value for that field. For example,
typing an “=” in the Department field will find every record that does not
have an assigned department.
Search Fields Using “Begins With”
For text and drop-down list fields you can search records whose values begin
with specific characters by entering those characters in the field. For example,
when searching by last name, a filter of “L” will find “Lake”, “Lewis”, etc. A
filter of “Lake” will find “Lake”, “Lakeland”, etc.
revision 2 — 201
15: Cardholders Folder
Note:
The default comparison operator for text fields is “begins with”.
Search Multiple Fields
When you search multiple fields, the search criteria for each field is combined.
For example, typing “A” in Last name field and “B” in First name field will
find all people whose last name begins with “A” and whose first name beings
with “B”.
One exception is searching access levels, which uses an “or” comparison for
multiple selections. For example, selecting both “Access Level A” and “Access
Level B” will find all cardholders with either “Access Level A” or “Access Level
B” assigned.
Note:
If you want to search for a range of Badge IDs, take advantage of the two
Badge ID fields on the Badge form. One field is located in the middle-left
section of the form and the other field is located in the right section of the
form. Note, the form must be in modify mode to see both fields. Type “>=
100” in one field and “<= 200” in the other to find all badges with IDs
between 100 and 200 (inclusive).

Keyboard Wedge Settings Window
A wedge scanner, also sometimes referred to as a wedge reader, is a device that is
attached to a keyboard and used to scan badge IDs as direct keyboard input.
Wedge scanners can be used with OnGuard to:
•
Add a badge. In this scenario, each card entry station has a wedge scanner.
The operator clicks [Add] and swipes the badge with the wedge scanner to
read the badge ID. This is equivalent to typing in the badge ID at the
keyboard. When a wedge scanner is used in this manner, no configuration of
the settings on the Keyboard Wedge Settings window is needed.
•
Search for a badge. The normal way to search for a badge in OnGuard is to
click [Search] and then specify what to search for, such as badge ID or social
security number. When a wedge scanner is used, the [Search] button does
not need to be clicked; instead, the system specifically searches on one
predefined criteria. When a wedge scanner is used in this manner, the
settings on the Keyboard Wedge Settings window must be properly
configured.
When to Use the Keyboard Wedge Settings Window
The Keyboard Wedge Settings window only needs to be configured on systems
that will be using a wedge scanner to search for badges. This may include:

MobileVerify stations. MobileVerify stations typically use a wedge scanner
because using a keyboard on a mobile computer is awkward. The wedge
scanner provides a quick way to search for a cardholder and instantly grant
or deny access based on the system’s recommendation.
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
•
Enterprise installations. Some Enterprise installations may choose to use a
wedge scanner as a way of preventing duplicate badges. Since the card is
swiped instead of typing a number in, the possibility of entering a wrong
badge ID is eliminated.
The settings on the Keyboard Wedge Settings window determine the format of
the data that is sent between a wedge scanner and the OnGuard system, and are
specified on a per workstation basis. Administrative rights to the workstation are
required to change these settings because any changes must be written to the
ACS.INI file.
Displaying the Keyboard Wedge Settings Window
The Keyboard Wedge Settings window is displayed by selecting Keyboard
Wedge Settings from the Cardholder menu. (In System Administration, ID
CredentialCenter, Visitor Management, and View/Edit Only the Cardholder
menu is only displayed after selecting Cardholders from the Administration
menu. In Alarm Monitoring, the Cardholder menu is displayed after clicking the
toolbar button.)
CAC Barcodes
A common access card (CAC) is a military-issued ID card that is issued to active
duty personnel, selected reservists, Department of Defense civilian employees,
eligible contractors, and some foreign nationals. Retirees, family members, and
inactive reservists are not currently issued a CAC card.
Configuring OnGuard to Read CAC Barcodes
To set the OnGuard system up to read CAC cards, the If length of input exceeds
limit, assume CAC barcode check box on the Keyboard Wedge Settings
window must be selected. A limit also needs to be specified. If only CAC cards
will be read, then the Limit can be set to 0. However, most systems will also need
to have the ability to read other cards in addition to CACs, so the limit will need
to be set to an appropriate value.
For example, a military base that assigns badge IDs to the people on its base may
want to be able to read those badge IDs as well as CACs because visitors from
other bases will only have a CAC. In this case, the limit would need to be set to
an appropriate number. If the badge IDs were all nine digits long, then an
appropriate limit would be ten because CAC barcodes are much longer than ten
digits.
Scanning Barcodes with a Wedge Scanner
When an ID is scanned, OnGuard determines the length of the number that was
scanned. If the number of digits exceeds the limit, then the number is treated as a
CAC number, and the social security number is decrypted and searched up.
If the number of digits is less than the limit, then the maximum length, start, and
end settings are applied to the string and used to extract the search criteria
(typically badge ID or social security number).
After those settings are examined, the system then examines the Table and Field
and searches that information up. The Table and Field specified depend on what
revision 2 — 205
15: Cardholders Folder
information is encoded on the card that will be read in addition to the CAC.
Common options include:
•
Badge ID. If searching on Badge IDs, select the BADGE table and the ID
field.
•
Social security number. If searching on social security numbers, select the
EMP table and the SSNO field.
•
User-defined field. If searching on a user-defined field, select the desired
table and field. For example, a company may wish to search on a table and
field that is unique to their system, such as an employee number.
The following flowchart describes what happens when a barcode is scanned with
a wedge scanner:

Limit
If CAC is being used and an ID is scanned that has more than the specified Limit of
digits, then the Table and Field will be ignored.
If selected, CAC (Common Access Card) barcodes can be used. This allows military code
3of9 barcodes to be scanned and decoded into the cardholder’s social security number. If you
do not wish to use this feature, leave this check box deselected.
If this check box is selected, you must specify an appropriate Limit. When this check box is
selected and an ID is scanned, the number of digits will be examined.
•
If the number of digits is less than or equal to the Limit, then the system will search on
the Table and Field.
•
If the number of digits is greater than the Limit, then the system will assume the ID was a
CAC, decrypt the social security number, and search the social security number up.
The Limit field is only enabled when the If length of input exceeds limit, assume CAC
barcode check box is selected.
If the Limit is set to zero, then only CAC can be read. Setting a limit greater than zero enables
the system to recognize two different formats. When an ID is scanned, the number of digits
will be examined.
•
If the number of digits is less than or equal to the Limit, then the system will search on
the Table and Field using the Max length, Start, and End settings.
•
If the number of digits is greater than the Limit, then the system will assume the ID was a
CAC, decrypt the social security number, and search the social security number up.
Ignore nonnumeric data
If selected, non-numeric data is removed and not counted as a placeholder. This is important
for scans that include dashes in the social security number. For example, if an ID is scanned
that has 123-45-6789 encoded, the system will search for 123456789.
Max length
A maximum length must be provided if the wedge scanner does not automatically provide a
line feed carriage return. This allows the wedge scanner to be used as long as the length of the
scan is always the same (i.e., social security number).
If 0 or -1 is specified, then the whole string will be read in.

Start
The Start field works in combination with the End field. When an ID is scanned, a string of
numbers are read. As long as the ID is not a CAC, that string of numbers typically contains the
actual badge ID or social security number. For a CAC, that string of numbers doesn’t contain
the actual social security number, but OnGuard does “decrypt” the social security number
from the string.
The Start position is important because the string of numbers may contain other numbers in
addition to what is being searched for; it is the first position in the string of numbers that
contains a digit of what is being searched for. The End position is the last digit of what is
being searched for.
The End position should be greater than or equal to the Start position. Take for example the
string 123456789. If 4 is the Start position and 7 is the End position, then the OnGuard
system will search on 4567.
If you specify an End position that is less than the Start position, OnGuard assumes the end is
255. Therefore, for the string 123456789 with 4 as the Start and 3 as the End, OnGuard would
search on 456789.
End
The End field works in combination with the Start field. As long as the ID is not a CAC, that
string of numbers typically contains the actual badge ID or social security number. For a CAC,
that string of numbers doesn’t contain the actual social security number, but OnGuard does
“decrypt” the social security number from the string.
The Start position is important because the string of numbers may contain other numbers in
addition to what is being searched for; it is the first position in the string of numbers that
contains a digit of what is being searched for. The End position is the last digit of what is
being searched for.
The End position must be greater than or equal to the Start position. Take for example the
string 123456789. If 4 is the Start position and 7 is the End position, then the OnGuard
system will search on 4567.
If you specify an End position that is less than the Start position, OnGuard assumes the end is
255. Therefore, for the string 123456789 with 4 as the Start and 3 as the End, OnGuard would
search on 456789.

ID Scan
Using the ID Scan scanners, users can import demographic data on driver
licenses, identification cards, and passports issued by various Countries and State
and Provincial Departments of Motor Vehicles.
Note:
Not all the state and provincial DMV’s currently encode their driver’s
license and identification cards. Therefore, not all state driver licenses are
supported.
Note:
Importation of cardholder and visitor data with ScanShell 800-R and
ScanShell 1000-A CSS devices is now licensed. This license allows only a
certain number of CSS devices, dictated by the license, to be configured
through workstations and scanners.
The ScanShell 800-R is the regular scanner that scans driver’s licenses and uses
OCR to extract data off of them. The ScanShell 1000-A performs the same
function plus passport scanning.
Only data that is mapped to the appropriate DMV-UDF fields in FormsDesigner
is imported into the Cardholder form.
Data Import
Users will be prompted to select an ID, barcode, or passport during the scanning
process. When ID scanning is selected users will have to select the country and
the state/region of the driver license. However, when U. S. is selected (as the
country), users will have an option to select auto detect (for the state). When auto
detect is selected ID scan attempts to detect the state of the driver license that is
being scanned.

ID-Check Terminal
Using the ID-Check Terminal scanner, users can import demographic data on
driver licenses and identification cards issued by various State and Provincial
Departments of Motor Vehicles. These credentials usually use any combination
of a 3-track magnetic stripe, 2D barcode, and 1D barcode. Only data that is
mapped to the appropriate DMV-UDF field in FormsDesigner can be imported.
Notes:
Not all state and provincial DMV’s are supported.
OnGuard supports ID-Check terminals (IDC-1400) version 5.4 and later.
Note:
Importation of cardholder and visitor data with the ID-Check Terminal is
now licensed. This license allows only certain number of ID-Check Terminal
devices, dictated by the license, to be configured.
PIV Card
Using a PC/SC encoder/scanner, users can import data into the Cardholder form
from PIV cards.
Only data that is mapped to the appropriate PIV-UDF or FASC-N-UDF fields in
FormsDesigner is imported into the Cardholder form.
After selecting the PIV card as the data import source, the user must enter their
PIN number to authenticate the process.
Fingerprint Verification and Import
Users will be prompted to verify the cardholder’s fingerprint(s) and the photo on
the PIV card is presented for further verification. Fingerprints from the card may
be imported as well. For more information, refer to Fingerprint Verification with
PIV Cards on page 211 and Import Fingerprints from a PIV Card on page 212.
Photo Replacement
If a photo is encoded on the PIV card, the user may elect to replace the current
cardholder photo with the one on the card. For more information, refer to
Replace Cardholder Photo with Facial Image on PIV Card on page 214.
TWIC Card
Using a PC/SC encoder/scanner, users can import data into the Cardholder form
from TWIC cards which contain both TWIC and PIV data.
Only data that is mapped to the appropriate PIV-UDF or FASC-N-UDF fields in
FormsDesigner is imported into the Cardholder form.
After selecting either the TWIC card or PIV card as the data import source, the
user must enter their PIN number to authenticate the process.

PIN
Displayed in add or modify mode. Indicates the personal identification number for the selected
badge. PIN numbers are used in conjunction with card readers that are operating in “Card and
Pin,” or “Pin or Card,” mode.
The maximum PIN length is determined by the PIN type field in the Access Panels folder.
For increased security, PIN codes are not viewable by any user. However, if the system is
configured to randomly generate a new PIN code when adding a badge, the user can see the
PIN code when they first add the badge (but not later).
Use limit
Displayed in add or modify mode. Imposes a restriction on the number of times a cardholder
can use his/her badge at readers marked with the “Enforce Use Limit” option. A use limit
value of zero (0) indicates that a badge has no uses at readers that enforce a use limit. A use
limit value of 255 or that is left empty indicates that the badge has unlimited uses.
Note:
Users who have upgraded to this current build should note that the Use Limit feature
has changed. Having a use limit of “0” no longer means unlimited. It now means
none. A use limit of “255” now means unlimited. Also, performing a download of
your system will no longer reset the uses count.
Note:
When the use limit for a badge is modified the uses left are updated to reflect the
new use limit assigned. For example, if you have 10 total uses and have already used
5 (so 5 are left), and you increase the Use limit to 15, the panel will be updated so
the uses left will be 10. Conversely if you have a badge with 10 total uses and have
already used 5 (so 5 are left), and you decrease the Use Limit count to 8, the panel
will be updated so the uses left will be 3.
Note:
Making changes to the use limit feature while your system is offline with the host
may cause the badges to become out of synch with the panel.
APB exempt
Displayed in add or modify mode. When this check box is selected, any anti-passback
violation for the selected badge will granted access into the anti-passback area with no
violation noted in the Alarm Monitoring application.
Destination
exempt
Displayed in add or modify mode. Select this check box if you want the selected badge record
to be exempt from destination assurance processing.
When selected, the badge will not be included in the destination assurance processing and no
alarms will be generated if the cardholder violates any of the destination assurance settings.
Via the Reports folder, you can run a Destination Assurance Exempt Cardholders report to see
a list of which cardholders will be exempt from processing.
For more information, refer to the Destination Assurance Folder chapter in the System
Administration User Guide.
Use extended
strike/held times
Displayed in add or modify mode. When this check box is selected, extended held open and
extended strike times will be used for the selected badge.
Note:
Override blocking
This option is supported by Lenel hardware only.
Select this to give the cardholder assigned to this badge the ability to unlock a door that has
been blocked with a blocking card. Locks are blocked to deny entrance in unusual cases such
as a police investigation. It is important to leave this field deselected unless you are certain the
user of this badge template should be able to open a blocked lock. For more information, refer

Badge Form Procedures
Add or Replace a Badge Record
Note:
232 — revision 2
1.
In Alarm Monitoring, select Badge Info from the View menu. In all other
applications, select Cardholders from the Administration menu.
2.
Locate the existing cardholder/visitor record.
3.
On the Badge tab, click [Add].
4.
Select the badge type.
5.
Enter the badge activation and deactivation dates.
6.
Depending on how badge ID allocation is configured, you may need to
manually enter a badge ID.
7.
If the badge will be used for access control and access requires a card and/or
personal identification number (PIN), ask the cardholder/visitor to enter a
PIN.
The length of PIN codes is configured in System Administration under the
Access Panels folder > Options sub-tab and the Cardholder Options folder. If
a PIN code is configured to be n-digits long and a cardholder enters a PIN
code longer than n, the PIN code gets downloaded with the badge record, but
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
gets truncated at n digits. For example, if a cardholder enters “123456” and
the PIN type is 4-digits, then “1234” gets downloaded.
8.
Enter any additional information and click [OK].
9.
If this is the only active badge assigned to the cardholder/visitor, you are
finished. Otherwise, continue with the next step.
10. If the cardholder/visitor record already has an active badge, the Change
Badge Status dialog opens, prompting you to change the status of the “old”
badge. To do this:
Note:
a.
Verify the current active (old) badge is selected.
b.
Select the new status from the New Status drop-down list. Choices
include the default badge status values, and any badge status values that
were added in the List Builder folder.
c.
Click [OK].
d.

Modify Badges window opens.
3.
If you want to update the activation date, deactivation date, badge status, or
use limit, do so in the Fields to Update section.
Note:
234 — revision 2
The Update use limit field refers to the number of times a cardholder can
use a badge at readers marked with the “enforce use limit” option. If you do
update the use limit and leave the field empty it will be set to 255 (unlimited
uses). In previous versions of OnGuard this would be set to 0, which now
means 0 (or no) uses. Also note that a bulk use limit change updates a
cardholder’s previous use number. So, if a badge originally was set to 5 uses,
and has already used 3, and then a bulk update changed the use limit to 4,
then the badge would only have 1 use left.
4.
If you want to filter which badges from the selected group get modified, do
so in the Badge Filter section. You can filter by badge status and/or badge
type.
5.
If you do not want to filter badges, select the Update badges of all statuses
and/or Update badges of all types radio buttons.

Encoding Prerequisites
Several steps must occur in OnGuard to properly encode a magnetic, Wiegand, or
smart card. Each step occurs in a different folder in the OnGuard application.
1.
Note:
In the Workstations folder > Encoding form, configure an inline or
standalone encoder/scanner.
You do not need to configure USB encoders/scanners (e.g. MIFARE Pegoda
contactless smart card reader) in OnGuard applications. Simply install the
drivers and attach the hardware to the workstation. This does not apply to the
ScanShell 800-R/1000-A.
2.
In the Card Formats folder, create a card format that will contain data to be
encoded on a badge.
3.
In the Badge Types folder > Encoding form, assign an encoding format to a
badge type. In other words, assign a card format to be encoded on a badge of
a specific type.
4.
In the Cardholders folder, add a cardholder or visitor record to the database.
5.
In Multimedia Capture, capture the cardholder/visitor’s photo, signature,
and/or biometric data.
6.
In the Cardholders folder, encode the badge.
Encode a Badge
This procedure assumes the magnetic encoder has been set up and configured in
System Administration on the Administration > Workstations > Encoders/
Scanners form.
1.
Display a cardholder/visitor in the Cardholders folder. You can do this by
enrolling a cardholder or searching for one or several cardholders.
2.
Click [Encode]. The Encode Badge window opens.

Alarm Monitoring User Guide
Comparison Operators
Comparison operators are symbols that represent specific actions. You can refine
your search by prefixing search fields with a comparison operator. Refer to the
following table to identify the comparison operators you can use with different
fields.
Comparison operator

Notes:
“Equal to” is the default comparison operator for numeric and drop-down
list fields.
If you type an equal to sign “=” in a field and nothing else, OnGuard will
search for records that have an empty value for that field. For example,
typing an “=” in the Department field will find every record that does not
have an assigned department.
Search Fields Using “Begins With”
For text and drop-down list fields you can search records whose values begin
with specific characters by entering those characters in the field. For example,
when searching by last name, a filter of “L” will find “Lake”, “Lewis”, etc. A
filter of “Lake” will find “Lake”, “Lakeland”, etc.
Note:
The default comparison operator for text fields is “begins with”.
Search Multiple Fields
When you search multiple fields, the search criteria for each field is combined.
For example, typing “A” in Last name field and “B” in First name field will
find all people whose last name begins with “A” and whose first name beings
with “B”.
One exception is searching access levels, which uses an “or” comparison for
multiple selections. For example, selecting both “Access Level A” and “Access
Level B” will find all cardholders with either “Access Level A” or “Access Level
B” assigned.

Alarm Acknowledgment Reports Form Overview
The Alarm Acknowledgment Reports form is designed to provide reports on
acknowledged alarms. These reports can be filtered by the date/time the
acknowledgment occurred, the device that triggered the alarm, and the operator
who acknowledged the alarm. When you select a filter, the report displays alarm
acknowledgments for only the filtered device. If you want to view everything,
use the convenient [Report All] button.
The result of the report includes the following:
Notes:
•
Date and time this report was created
•
Date and time the alarm occurred
•
Date and time the alarm was acknowledged
•
Who acknowledged the alarm
•
Any notes included with the acknowledgment
•
The device that caused the alarm
•
The total number of acknowledgments
The details column does not report who acknowledged the alarm, but rather
who was logged into Alarm Monitoring when the alarm was acknowledged.
Therefore, someone other than the person logged into Alarm Monitoring
may have acknowledged the alarm.
The first and last name displayed in the details column are configured in the

Chapter 22:
Guard Tour
Guard tour provides a guard (a cardholder who has been specifically chosen to
conduct a tour) with a defined set of tasks that must be performed within a
specified period of time. Typical tasks include swiping a card at a checkpoint
access reader or turning a key connected to an alarm panel input. (Checkpoints
are designated stops along a tour.)
Guard tour records the location and timestamp for each checkpoint visited by the
tour guard. The Checkpoint Time represents the time it should take to reach a
particular checkpoint. All checkpoints have minimum and maximum checkpoint
times. A guard tour event is generated if a checkpoint is missed, reached early, on
time, late, out of sequence or overdue. A late event means the checkpoint was
reached after its maximum time expired. An overdue event means the checkpoint
has not yet been reached.
A tour is considered complete when one of the following actions occurs:
Note:
•
All of the checkpoints on the tour are reached, even if they are reached out of
sequence or some checkpoints are missed
•
The tour is acknowledged as complete at a monitoring station
•
The tour is terminated at a monitoring station
System Administrator procedures to set up a Guard Tour are located in the

In the Windows start menu click run.
2.
In the Run dialog box type “ACS.INI” without the quotes.

Instant arm - some intrusion panels support the notion of both delay arm and instant arm. With
instant arm, the area is armed immediately.
Interior and Perimeter- in higher end intrusion panels, there is the concept of an interior and a
perimeter of an area. Various zones within the area are associated with either the interior or the
perimeter. Zones that might be associated with the interior are motion detectors placed in the
hallways of an office building. Zones that might be associated with the perimeter are sensors
on external windows and doors.
Master arm - when an area is master armed, the entire area is armed. This includes both the
perimeter and the interior.
Perimeter arm - when an area is perimeter armed, only the perimeter is armed. This means that
those zones associated with the interior will continue to generate alarms, but those associated
with the perimeter will not. This type of arming may be used when an authorized person is
inside a building at off hours. They don’t want the interior armed and reporting alarms since
they will be moving throughout the interior. However, if somebody else breaches the perimeter
of the building (forces open a door, breaks a window, etc.), alarms will be reported. (continued
on next page)
Partial arm - arms only those zones that have been configured for partial arming. All other
zones in the area will not be armed.

When configuring an area as an action, select this radio button if you want the action to be that
the area will be disarmed. When an area is disarmed, protection for this area is “turned off.”
Alarms will not be reported within the area.
For example, consider a home burglar system that has sensors on the windows and doors and
motion detectors inside. When the owner arrives home, he/she disarms the system so that
alarms won’t be reported as they walk around the house.

Run PTZ Tour Properties Window
The Run PTZ Tour action type allows the user to start or end a continuous
background PTZ tour. To use this action, a PTZ Tour Server must be configured
in System Administration and a PTZ tour must be created in Alarm Monitoring.
Background PTZ tours can be interrupted by a user with a higher priority or by
the user that started the tour. If a background PTZ tour is interrupted by the user
that started it, the tour may fail to stop and control may not become available to
the user. This issue will occur for any user of the same priority as the user who
created the tour. In order for this not to occur, the user who creates the tour must
have a priority lower than that of any user wishing to interrupt it.
You can open the Run PTZ Tour Action window using Scheduler or Global I/O.

Video events are typically
created automatically by the
system based on an event
from an external device.
This allows the user to
generate an event that is not
tied to any device. It can be
created from any camera
with any user defined time
limit from within the video
player window in Alarm
Monitoring. This event can
then be included in reports,
or have a trace performed
like any other event in the
system.

LNVR Network Setup
The LNVR Network Setup tool allows you to enable multicast, fix computers
with several network interfaces, and restrict ports usage as well as make them
firewall friendly. Install the LNVR Network Setup tool by running LnrNI.exe
from the directory: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Lenel. Alternatively, the
tool is also provided on the Supplemental Materials disc under Current Digital
Video.
Deliver Live Video to Alarm Monitoring Using IP
Multicast Protocol
Using an IP Multicast protocol to send video is ideal because it saves bandwidth
when more than one machine is watching the same video. IP Multicast video is
sent once instead of multiple times as with a Unicast protocol.
Live video retrieval from LNVR recorders by default is configured to use UDP/
IP, Multicast, and TCP/IP protocols on any available port. Clients can specify
which of these protocol they want to use for each request. The options are to use:
•
UDP/IP
•
Multicast
If all protocols are selected to be used then your computer will try and use IP
Multicast first but if it fails it will then use UDP/IP. If UDP/IP fails then TCP/IP
will be used.
Note:
While you can select to not use UDP/IP and Multicast, TCP/IP is always
used as a last resort if the previous methods fail.
Note:
Recorded video is always retrieved using DCOM protocol. DCOM is also
used to access LNVR recorder for configuration. It is assumed that DCOM is
configured properly and therefore this document does not cover retrieval of
recorded video.
To configure your system to use IP Multicast you must:
•
Configure Recorder for IP Multicast
•
Configure Client for IP Multicast
•
Configure Router for IP Multicast
•
Configure Firewall for IP Multicast
revision 2 — 549
D: LNVR Network Setup
LNVR Network Setup Window
The LNVR Network Setup tool has three tabs that are viewable if you have the
specific network setups. If you only see one or two of the following tabs do not
worry. They are not applicable for your system.
Client Network Settings Form
The Client Network Settings form can be used by all machines and allows you to
specify how the client computer receives video data. You can also enable and
disable multicast and UDP/IP use.
Note:
The Client Network Settings form only affects client applications. It will not
change anything on the server.
Field
Description
Select Network
Interface
Lists the network interface you wish to setup for LNVR Live Video if you computer has more
then one network card.
Connection
Protocol Settings
Area where you select what protocol settings you want to use. These include using Multicast
and UDP/IP. You can also choose what ports to use with UDP/IP.
Use Multicast
Select for client machines if you wish to use Multicast. Multicast allows more than one
computer to view the same video. While this frees up bandwidth some routers and firewalls
don’t allow this sort of multicast packets to pass through them.
Use UDP/IP
Select for client machines if you wish to use UDP/IP. UDP/IP allows more than one computer
to view the same video. Unlike multicast, though, the video will be sent multiple times which
will increase the network load.
Limit port range
Choose which ports should be used for UDP/IP.
550 — revision 2
Alarm Monitoring User Guide
Field
Description
Use TCP/IP
This is always selected as it is the last method of delivery and there is nothing else to fallback
on if all else fails. TCP/IP is preferred over UDP/IP because it is able to deliver much more
data. Because of bandwidth and speed issues this should only be used if there are problems
with the other methods.
Recorder Network Settings Form
The Recorder Network Settings form can only be used by LNVR machines and
allows you to specify the ports used when client computers connect to them using
TCP/IP.
Important:
Multiple recorders should not use the same multicast ports. Doing so causes
video frames from the recorders to conflict with each other and become
interlaced. Each channel on a recorder should be given its own port.
Field
Description
Recorder TCP/IP
Port
The port used for the LNVR recorder.
Any Available
Select if you want the LNVR recorder to use any available port on the system.
Specific
Select if you want the LNVR recorder to use a specific port if firewalls prevent you from using
any port.
First Recorder
Multicast Port
The port used for the LNVR first recorder.
Any Available
Select if you want the LNVR first recorder to use any available port on the system.

OnGuard computer that is going to use Alarm Monitoring to see live video.
2.
Select the Use Multicast check box.
3.
Click [Apply].
Configure Router for IP Multicast
Most network routers and network devices between LNVR and its clients block
IP Multicast traffic. Refer to the device manual of your specific equipment to see
how to enable Multicast on it.
Configure Firewall for IP Multicast
A Firewall between LNVR and its clients can and usually does block both UDP/
IP and IP Multicast traffic. This traffic is one directional communication, so if
there are firewalls between LNVR and its clients they must have UDP/IP and IP
Multicast traffic enabled from LNVR to its clients.
It is enough to open ports in one direction only (from LNVR to clients). If a
firewall cannot be configured to enable UDP/IP traffic on all ports then a range of
ports can be opened instead.
Note:
A client will be able to see no more live video streams from the recorder than
number of open ports.
