  1. Add an Altronix RBST into the circuit if you can. There is a wiring diagram for a latching setup in the pdf aand you might be able to incorporate that https://www.altronix.com/library/pdf/installation_instructions/RBST.pdf

    facing issue with came barrier

    I found this manual, the wiring diagram is on page 10 and 11 http://manuals.easygates.co.uk/PDF/CAME/M02v22.pdf

  5. Does the door need a momentary trigger to activate a built in timer, or does the door open as long as the trigger is closed? If it's a momentary trigger, it can be done with a 4 pole, dual throw relay (4 separate sets of C, NC, and NO contacts), and that relay is powered by the same power going to any locking device you have on the door. When the door is supposed to be secure, the inside ADA button is tied to the access panel RTE inputs, and the outside ADA button is not tied to anything. When someone pushes the inside button, it triggers the locking device to release, and the relay then sends the pressed button to the door opener. Or, if there is a valid card read, it will enable the outer button to open the door. When the door is set to allow normal access, the relay will connect both buttons directly to the door opener. I made a crude diagram or a 4 pole dual throw relay HERE In my example, the red is for the connection to the INNER door ADA button, the blue is for the OUTER door ADA button. the green is the connection to the access control system RTE input. The yellows and orange are for the door opener trigger (Yellows together, oranges together). This relay is powered with the same wires that power the door locking device, and the connections assume that the locking device POWERS to SECURE the door. It also assumes the buttons are the standard normally open momentary buttons.

    Android remote viewing app

    New to servicing GeoVision, and I'm having issues with the mobile app. I've upgraded the DVR to 8.5.9 and have been trying the latest GVAView and GV-Eye apps for Android (the latter at the suggestion of tech support after the upgrade). No matter which port I put in my apps to connect (8080, 8866, 10000, 56000, just to name the ones I can recall off the top of my head), and cannot connect. I have connected my phone to the same network, to make sure I can do it without the network firewall in the way, but I have to be missing something. Any tips or suggestions? Which port should I be trying to connect to? None of what are listed in the settings seem to work.

    How Not to Plant a Roadside Bomb

    Actually, I recall those were friendly Iraqi troops trying to get a bomb OUT of the ground, not plant one.

    difference between NVR and DVR

    The problem I've noticed is the IP cameras take longer to begin streaming than the analog cameras. My guess is that the megapixel cameras are coming into the unit via Ethernet, recoded, then sent back out through Ethernet. But, that is the only real problem I've noticed, and it isn't too big a deal usually

    converting digital to analog?

    Depending on the manufacturer, some offer video decoders to convert the video to analog. Axis I know offers this, and Panasonic used to. Look for IP decoder in association with your camera maker.

    My funeral, How do you plan to go

    At my funeral, I want a huge stand of flowers, with a "Get Well Soon" banner. Perhaps one that will squirt people with water if they go in to smell it. And, when they close the lid, I want it to have a small hammer to knock on the inside of the lid. Maybe a "Let me out", "I'm not dead" voice box thrown in for good measure

    RS2 Tech also talks with mercury panels. You might try to find a local supplier in your area.

    software viewer for mutli platform dvrs

    Do they all support using a web browser? You probably want some standalone application, but if all you're wanting is a live view, it might be the easiest (and quickest) option to consider

    CCTV Customers want Access Control

    It seems you'll have as many opinons as you have replies What CCTV manufacturers do you use? Some do not integrate with certain access control sysems. It might be a good idea to find out who your CCTV equipment can link with. It will give you an idea which companies to scout. You may not be thinking full fledged integration right now, but for the future...

    ACT Pro 2.5

    On page 36 of the Act Pro for Windows User's Manual It talks about the users who can access the program, and what authority they have. You can add a guard user that has only the minimal rights in the program. Hope that helps

    fault on GE STORESAFE PRO11

    Do you have anything heavy resting on top of the DVR? I have had that cause the problem you describe. Also, if you can open the DVR, there is usually a tie-wrap around the IDE cable (flat wide data cable) that is connected to the hard drives. I've seen that tie-wrap too tight, which caused the cable to pull out from the drives.
  21. If I recall right, Dedicated Micros used to have their own ready to go SCSI raid array for their DVR's. They recommended only using their certified unit (of course), but I don't see why a normal SCSI raid wouldn't work. I believe it only recognizes the add-on at startup, so you'll have to shutdown before adding it in.

    Pelco 6800 + Wavereader, Direct Access

    Ok, you have to do this from the front of the DVR, it can't be done from the Wavereader software. And, you will need a monitor plugged into the main monitor output of that DVR. To get into setup, there is a button in the upper right corner of the DVR, that looks like three computers networked together. Press it and the password prompt will appear. Use the camera number buttons to enter the password (the default for a 16 channel unit is 3477), followed by the enter button (te button on the lower right, under the first button. If you get in, you'll see the "main" menu at the top left of the monitor screen. Press enter. and the rest of the menu will appear. Use the inside ring of the jog/shuttle dial to move up and down, use the enter key to go into a menu selection, use the "network" button to go back, use the inner ring to select a field, and use the outer ring to change most fields, some will let you use the number buttons, like the passwords. Anyway, the "Passwords" field should be at the bottom of the main menu. Go to it, press enter, you'll have several options, including network. Te rest should be easy, after you're done, press the network button to back out. And, make sure to set the same network password in the wavereader software

    Pelco 6800 + Wavereader, Direct Access

    Yes, you can go into the DVR setup and create a network password. You would then need to put this password in the address book entry for each DVR. If you go to the address book, and edit one of the entries, you should see a box for network password. That would be the password stored on the unit, and it would not allow a connection if the passwords did not match

    Pelco 6800 + Wavereader, Direct Access

    I do not believe the video files are accessable from anything other than wavereader, nor can you access the drives directly through any networking of the unit.
  25. There are several wireless reader extenders available from Cypress Computer Systems. You might consider putting the readers, and a cypress transmitter, remotely on a power supply, and hardwire the two Lenel products together at the receiving end. Instead of trying to link the two lenel boards, you just link the reader board with the reader. I have used some of Cypress stuff on a few manufacturers systems, with great success. Or, if you're hell bent on remoting the 1320 board, you might have to look into a 485 to LAN, THEN a wireless LAN setup. It's an extra step, but it might be an easier option. Setup the 485 to LAN on a test bench, then add the wireless to that. Hope those ideas help
