Documentation for Monitoring 10.0. Documentation for other versions of Monitoring is available too.
The Control Panel is intended for quickly assessing the current status of video surveillance components.
Each object has a corresponding graphic element shown as a rectangle. It contains the object's identification area (at the top) and a configurable number of alarm indication buttons arranged in groups by source type:
- Communication Channel.
- Video System Software.
- Size of Archives.
- Detection tools/Detectors.
- Thermal Sensors.
If the Owner panel is enabled (see Configuring the Monitoring interface object section of Administrator's Guide), then only the objects that belong to the selected owner are displayed on the Control Panel.
The number of shown alarm groups can change from 4 to 9, depending on the Monitoring object settings on the Interfaces tab.
Four alarm groups.
Nine alarm groups.
