You can configure a AutoVu™ base unit output to activate when the system registers a hotlist hit. For example, you can use this feature to activate a video recording system when the license plate of a known offender is detected.

What you should know

The base unit outputs are normally closed relays and are not configurable.


  1. Open Genetec Patroller™ Config Tool.
  2. Go to Operation > General.
  3. Turn on Trigger output relay on hit.
  4. From the drop-down list, select the Output relay when a hotlist hit is registered.
  5. Configure the Duration between 500 and 60000 milliseconds.
  6. Click Apply.

After you finish

Configure the system you are activating to react to the trigger from the base unit output. For more information on the base unit inputs and outputs, refer to the AutoVu™ SharpZ3 Deployment Guide.
