The Action Controls

The Actions dialog governs how the camera will react to certain events.

In addition, you can define special Messages in the Messaging and Messaging 2 dialogs. You may select different events in each dialog to send different messages for these events.


General Settings

The Action Profile

Once you have activated the event processing of the camera, it will react to all events selected in this dialog. If Event Selection has been set to All (default), the camera will process all activated events in this list. To select only specific events from the list, use [Ctrl]-Click to highlight the desired events.

If you would like to select deactivated events from the list (gray and in brackets), activate the desired events in the Event Settings dialog, then reopen the Actions dialog.

Option Description
Enable Action Profile Using this option, you can (temporarily) deactivate the entire message profile without loosing the settings.
Time Table Profile

In order to activate the actions defined in this dialog in a time-controlled manner, you need to select a Time Table Profile. Make sure the action profile is set to Enable.

Action Dead Time No further action will be started during the time set in this parameter.
Event Selection

You can restrict the number of events upon which the camera should start a new action by highlighting only the desired events in the list. If this is the case, the actions described hereafter are performed for the highlighted events only.

Note: This selection does not affect image recording in the camera's internal image storage or on a file server.

File Transfer Action (FT)

Transfers an image to an FTP server. Select one of the profiles that you have created in the FTP Profiles dialog.

The Messaging 2 dialog allows setting a second FTP transmission (FT2).

Visual Alarm (VA)

When an event occurs, the live image can be enhanced by a visual effect. You can define the Effect, Color and Duration of this visual effect.

As an additional measure, you may activate Alarm Acknowledge to confirm events manually and to remove the visual alarm.

Note: This feature is not available for Web and Basic models.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
