Manual Robin HV / Robin CV ENG - v. 3.0.1
1 Introduction
1.1 Robin HV and Robin CV
Integrated functions
The Robin HV and the Robin CV are unique cameras. They are not only equipped with all modern
IP camera functionality, but they also feature the SIP protocol for full phone functionality. The
cameras are capable of initiating and answering phone calls, so making video calls between the
camera and a video capable phone are easy. The highlights of the cameras are:
ƒƒ Telephone device with audio and video SIP support
ƒƒ High-Definition, full-color camera with a 70 degree lens for the Robin CV and a wide-angle
lens for the Robin HV
ƒƒ The HV is equipped with 4 hardware input contacts
ƒƒ Advanced event mechanism
ƒƒ Security camera with movement- and audio detection
ƒƒ Free programmable warning LED
ƒƒ Remote controllable and configurable through HTTP-commands
ƒƒ RTSP streaming (audio and video)
Easy to install
The Robin HV can be easily mounted in a dropped ceiling. With the addition of an optional
mounting case the camera can also be mounted to a wall or a conventional ceiling.
The Robin CV is equipped with a easy to use ceiling- / wall mount and can be fitted almost
everywhere.
SIP communication
The Robin SV uses the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). This means that the entrance door unit
can be connected to any business telephone exchange (PBX) or VoIP devices that supports the SIP
protocol. To check compatibility please see the compatibility chart on the supplied USB drive or on
our support website: http://support.robin.nl.
Relay switches
The embedded potential free relay switches Robin CV (1x) and Robin HV (2x) can be used to
switch external hardware. The switches can be used to open a door, a gate or a barrier, switch
lights, external ringers etc.
5
gf6
Manual Robin HV / Robin CV ENG - v. 3.0.1
Built-in phone
Both the Robin CV and Robin HV feature a built-in SIP phone. By using a VoIP provider or PBX that
supports the SIP protocol these cameras can setup calls or can be called using a (video)phone. A
real-time audio-video connection between the phone and the camera can established that way. The
Robin cameras feature build-in speakers and microphones to make two way audio possible.
High-Definition video quality
The build-in camera of the Robin CV and Robin HV is capable of displaying the video image in
High-Definition (introduced in software version 3). The image can be set to an aspect ratio of 4x3
or 16x9.
High-quality sound reproduction
The integrated concept means that there are no ‘converters’ which distort sound quality.
Consequently, the Robin CV and Robin HV offer exceptionally good sound quality, without echo or
interference.
The audio of the Robin CV and Robin HV can also be configured as ‘half duplex’ , which will boost
the volume output and the microphone sensitivity.
Security camera function
The built-in security camera is a unique feature of the Robin. The built-in camera in the Robin
operates as a simple camera, allowing you to see who is at the door.
However, it can also function as a security camera. When the Robin detects movement, it starts to
record the video image and sound. In the event of a break-in (or attempted break-in), this feature
provides perfect video registration of the perpetrators.
No separate power supply
The Robin CV and Robin HV are both powered via ’Power-over-Ethernet‘ (PoE IEEE 802.3af).
This eliminates the need for a separate power supply; connection to a PoE network switch or
Midspan is all that is necessary.

gf7
Manual Robin HV / Robin CV ENG - v. 3.0.1
Web-based configuration
The Robin CV and Robin HV can be configured on a PC or Mac via a web browser (e.g. Firefox,
Chrome, Safari). Using a web browser, modification of all the settings for the Robin is easy,
regardless of the physical location of the Robin. You can also watch the live video image of the
Robin.
Compatible with WEBRelay
The Robin CV and Robin HV are compatible with an external IP relays, the WEBRelay Quad-LS.
This external device is equipped with 4 build-in relays and can be connected to the LAN.
The ‘Events’ mechanism in the Robin can control the 4 relays (page. 42).
Four build-in hardware inputs
The Robin HV features four separate hardware inputs. You can connect external triggers, such as:
fire alarms, panic buttons, external sensors etc.

! Note: The number can be entered in various ways.
1. Just the number (e.g. 104, 1002, 6032 etc.). The handset is located on a connected PBX
in the same network.
2. The number, followed by the IP address of the handset that is to be dialled (e.g.
1000@10.0.0.53, 102@192.168.1.21 etc.). The handset and the Robin are connected
to each other directly, i.e. the call is not routed via a PBX. The Robin dials the handset
directly.
3. The number, followed by the IP address of a ‘Proxy server’. The handset is connected to
a PBX that uses a separate ‘Proxy server’ (e.g. 1003@192.168.0.50, 703@172.16.2.5
etc.) The Robin places the call to the configured PBX via this ‘Proxy server’. !
* Peer to Peer connection: If a direct connection between the Robin and a telephone set is
required - without the use of a SIP-PBX - please check our whitepaper: How-To_Peer-to-ENG.pdf

third number.
ƒƒ First
Select the first number to dial.

Manual Robin HV / Robin CV ENG - v. 3.0.1
Schedules:
The Robin CV and Robin HV features a ‘Schedule’ function. The schedules can be defined in the
menu -System-Schedules-.
This function allows you to set multiple time periods (‘Timeslots’): e.g. office hours, the lunch
break, etc.
Consequently, during the lunch break for example, the Robin CV and Robin HV can be set to dial a
different telephone number from that configured for normal working hours.
The ‘Timeslots’ are not prioritised so they must be set consecutively, e.g.:
8:30-12:29 morning -> call reception
12:30-13:00 lunch -> call the canteen
13:01-17:00 afternoon -> call reception
! Note: When the ‘Schedule’ function is in use and ‘Timeslots’ are created, the latter take priority
over the ‘First, Second and Third’ settings in -Telephony-Call settings-Call priority-. So the Robin
CV and Robin HV checks first whether a ‘Timeslot’ is active based on the current time, if not, it
reverts to the settings for ‘First, Second and Third’. !

sending and transmitting
The echo canceller can be set to:
ƒƒ Off, no echo cancellation
ƒƒ Adaptive, good echo cancellation. Allows two-way simultaneous communication
ƒƒ Half-duplex, makes use of sound detection to switch between speaker or microphone. This
means that you can’t have two-way simultaneous communication, but half duplex. You either
speak or listen. The advantage of this setting is that the speaker level can be raised further
than with the adaptive setting and the microphones sensitivity increases. This setting is
useful for use in noisy environments.

5.2.2.2 Audio / Detection
The Robin CV and Robin HV are capable of detecting sound.
This detection can trigger ‘Actions’ such as the staring of a recording, activation of a relay switch or
automatic calling to a phone set. These actions can be defined in the menu -System-Events-.
Depending of the location of the Robin and the type of sound that should trigger the detection, two
parameters can be set: the volume and the duration.
Short audio spikes can be filtered by increasing the duration setting. Background noise can be
filtered by increasing the threshold.
Audio detection:
ƒƒ Enabled
Enable or disable the audio detection
ƒƒ Threshold
Change the volume threshold of the detection
ƒƒ Duration
Change the audio duration of the detection

You use the mouse to define a selection area in the image. Draw a frame in the video image and
enlarge/reduce it by dragging the top left and bottom right corners. The red cross at the top removes
the selection frame.
Consider how to minimise the chance of a false alarm when selecting the zones. For example, avoid
objects that move in the wind such as flags, branches on trees, etc.
Both detection sensitivity and the size of the object you want to detect can be adjusted. The graph
at the bottom of the image allows you to verify whether the settings are correct.
The colour of the bars is green (= no detection) or red (= detection)
