You can change the default parameters that apply to all intrusion detection units connected to a particular Intrusion Manager role.

What you should know

If you need to change the parameters of an individual intrusion detection unit, do so on the Properties page of the unit.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Intrusion detection task.
  2. Click the Extensions tab and select GIP.
    Extensions page for the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension
  3. Configure the following:
    Grace period
    Period when offline events from the intrusion panel are treated as live events; they are logged and sent to online users. The default is 5 minutes.
    Alarm grace period
    Period when offline alarm events from the intrusion panel are treated as live events; they are logged and sent to online users. The default is 30 minutes.
    An alarm event is defined as one of the following:
    • Input alarm activated
    • Intrusion detection area alarm activated
    • Intrusion detection area duress
    • Intrusion detection unit tamper
    Persistence grace period
    Period during which offline events from the intrusion panel are logged but not sent to online users. The default is 30 minutes. Offline events outside this period are discarded.
    Trigger input events
    When set to Always, every new event reported by a given input triggers a new alarm event in Security Center. When set to When intrusion detection area is armed, input events are only reported when the associated intrusion detection area is in armed state. Otherwise, events are discarded.
    NOTE: Setting this to When intrusion detection area is armed doesn't affect custom events. This is only for native events, including Input state changed, Input bypass state changed, and Input alarm state changed.
    Partitions
    If you want to change the default partition of intrusion units, you can click Add an item (), and select a new partition. This only applies to units that have not yet been enrolled. If the list is left empty, the units are enrolled under the same partition as the intrusion manager role. It is recommended to have the units enrolled in the same partition as the role. Otherwise, when viewing the entity tree, the units will not be under any role.
  4. Click Apply.
