IndigoVision SMS4 release 4 focuses on alarm response
The latest version of SMS4, IndigoVision’s suite of management software, introduces alarm display options that make it easier for users to respond effectively to alarms. Operators choose exactly where an alarm will be shown on their SMS4 Control Center interface, and each alarm is clearly identified when it is displayed.
While no alarm has been activated, the operator can view any live camera feeds in any display pane. When an alarm comes in, however, the allocated pane will switch to the associated camera view with a distinct ‘alarm’ identification. The pane will return to displaying the previous camera as soon as the alarm is cleared. The operator can continue to monitor their chosen cameras in the other panes, allowing site-wide monitoring to continue throughout an alarm.
Other aspects of SMS4 release 4 include the ability to set alarm detectors to activate on one input, and deactivate on another – for example, a detector can activate when a door is opened, but deactivate when it is closed again.
