Assign Wires
Output Defaults

Open the Assign Wires dialog to let the camera know how the wires of expansion modules are connected.

This information is used to flexibly adjust the display and control of the standard inputs and outputs of door station cameras. Even if you are not using the camera as a door station, you can control the signal outputs using VoIP calls to the camera, via MxManagementCenter, MxControlCenter, MxEasy or the MOBOTIX App.


The camera can show the status of the following inputs in the different applications, if the inputs are properly assigned in this dialog:



Door Position Contact

Using a door position sensor, the applications can show if a door is open or closed.

Bolt Position Contact

Using a bolt position contact, the applications can show if a door is locked or not.


The camera can show the status of the following outputs in the different applications, if the inputs are properly assigned in this dialog:



Door opener

A door buzzer connected to this output is used from the remote station to open the door for guests at he door station. Note that you can specify a switching time if it takes too long to walk the door station to the actual door.


Please note that many door openers are not built for continuous operation and can thus melt down if they are operated for too long. The MX-DoorMaster thus limits the switching time to 10 seconds.

When calling the camera on the phone, you can use the Signal output A on Key 1.


A light switch (and the corresponding lamps) connected to this output can illuminate the surroundings of the camera or the entrance of the building, for example. This output can be switched persistently or it can be switched on and automatically off again after the specified switching time has expired.

When calling the camera on the phone, you can operate the time-controlled switching function using Signal output C on Key 3.

Internal illumination

Only on door stations! If present, the MOBOTIX Info module should be attached to this output. The camera can then control the background illumination of the module in conjunction with its own illumination.


Only on door stations!

These settings specify the inputs or keys that are to be used as doorbells. Using their given names, these bells are assigned to remote stations later on, when setting up the door stations. You should set names that reflect the bell position, e.g. "Bell_top", "Bell_center", and "Bell_bottom" when using a bell module with three bells. Using meaningful names makes it easier to assign the proper bell buttons later on.


If required, you can negate (reverse the logic of) the inputs and outputs. You will need to use this option if the devices you would like to switch are reacting differently than expected and are thus not properly displayed or operated by the camera.

You probably should not need to use this parameter.

Output Defaults

Outputs operated by the camera or the attached expansion modules are without current when the camera is booting. If you need to have current persistently at an output (except when switching), you need to create an entry for this output in this list. Note that the camera switches off the output temporarily when rebooting. Only after the camera has finished booting will the output be switched to the state defined in the corresponding profile.

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 Factory button to load the factory defaults for this dialog (this button may not be present in all dialogs).

Click on the Restore button to undo your most recent changes that have not been stored in the camera permanently.

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.
