Depending on the FW version of cameras and BVMS version you have installed, different possible situations can occur such as: the cameras are not working because the firmware is old, Configuration Client will display a message like: "unknown platform", Gaps in recordings or not recording at all and so on
When accessing the Operator Client from the Kiosk mode, the camera streams displayed on the cameos show a view that does not match the view from Operator Client running from desktop (Under the BVRAdmin account) or Remote Desktop.
Alarm functions include local inputs and relay outputs, plus motion detection in user-defined areas. If an alarm is detected, the DIVAR can: send an e-mail notification and/or FTP push, sound a buzzer and/or display a warning, activate local alarm output
According to its Data Sheet, the Flexidome IP 3000i IR camera has 2 options to activate the alarm input.
Please refer to the diagram from this article if you would like to get alarm input from some physical sensors.
