Description of Event Sensor Types

The Internal Events dialog contains all event sensors that can trigger a camera action based on internal state changes.

Using Meta Events to Avoid False Alarms

In order to filter events, the camera provides an Event Logic: This dialog allows linking events to create logic events only if the linked events occur in a certain sequence and within the specified time frame. Another possibility to filter events is the Event Counter: It creates an event only if a certain number of events occurs within the specified time frame.

General Settings



Event Dead Time

The event dead time defines a period of time (0..3600 s) after an event, during which no new events from the same profile are recognized.

By defining an event dead time you can avoid, for example, that a complex action (person walks through the active image area) triggers multiple events.
