How to connect your Kentix AlarmManager with an AXIS Camera
Posted by on 25 September 2014 04:04 PM

To connect the Kentix AlarmManager with your AXIS Camera and start a process like recording a video after becoming an alarm you can doing the following steps.

Note that this guide refers to an AXIS M3024-L but should be similar with other models.

 

Camera setup:

  • Open the AXIS Setup Interface via your webbrowser by entering http://YOUR_CAMERA_IP/ as address.
  • Enable access to the camera
    Enable access to the camera
  • Create a new Action rule 
    Create a new Action rule/event
  • Give an appropriate name [1] and ensure that the new rule is active [2] 
  • Choose Input Trigger as trigger source [3a] and Manual Trigger as type [3b] 
    The trigger must be active [3c] 
  • Select a time range within your event should be work [4]. Always is certainly a good choice. 
  • Additional conditions are not needed for this rule [5] 
  • Select Record Video as action type [6a] and within the Stream profile popup list the quality for this video [6b] 
  • Cause Kentis can only send an command after an alarm occurs but no command after this alarm is quitted or a specific time is elapsed the duration of the recorded video must be declared within the AXIS setup: 
    Within the section Duration activate Pre-trigger time [7a] and Post-trigger time [7c] and set the times the video should be recorded before and after an alarm occurs. 
    Be sure the function While the rule is active is disabled [7b]. Otherwise every recording must be manually end. 
  • At last choose a place where the recordings should be saved [8].
    Define Axis rule/event
  • If you want to use a network share, you must define this within „System Options“ -> „Storage“ -> „Network Share“. 
    By example a share like \\YOUR_HOST_OR_IP\axis must be registered this way: 

    Go to Network Share settings:
    Go to Network Share settings

    Enter your settings (Host and Share without leading or trailing slashes!)
    Enter network share settings

 Kentix ControlCenter setup:

  • Log into your ControlCenter
  • Opening Settings -> Advanced...
  • Jump to tab Network cameras
    Enter your Camera Name, the IP Adresse and Port with which your camera can reached within the network and the HTTP Command
    /axis-cgi/io/virtualinput.cgi?action=6:/\
    Network cameras settings
    Via the button labelled with a small hook you can test the connection. Alternately you can open your webbrowser and type
    YOUR_CAMERA_IP/axis-cgi/io/virtualinput.cgi?action=6:/\

    as address.
  • Don't forget to save the new settings
    Save new settings

From now on your Axis camera will be triggered if a Kentix alarm occurs.
