Alarm notifications are provided in several different ways:
- VMS Event Integration
- Email/Text Notification
- IO Trigger
HALO can supply any VMS with a video stream of its Live View sensor status. A VMS device license is required to display the live video.
HALO provides any VMS a MJPEG stream which shows the current status/readings of its sensors. The stream is provided via a standard RTSP request. Each sensor in the system has the ability to set its alarm notification points.
Currently Milestone XProtect is supported by HALO. The XProtect Event Manager integration is able to discern the cause of the alarm and whether it is a set or reset of an alarm condition. Similarly, email/texts will provide the cause of the alarm and whether it is a set or reset condition. Video Insight, Panasonic and Sentry VMS are next up for integration.
The email or text notifications can be programmed by the user. Short messages like “Vape detected in Bathroom HS-5” work best. Messages will have a time stamp.
Email notifications will include the following information:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com>
