Use the Camera maintenance incident type to provide operators with a standard operating procedure to resolve camera unit errors.

Camera maintenance incident type: functionality

The incident type is configured for manual trigger. The operator can trigger the incident from the Incident monitoring task in Security Desk.

This incident is also triggered from the Abnormal Events - Video/Camera incident when the operator response to the dynamic SOP includes a request for maintenance.

After the incident is triggered, the system guides the operator through a series of configured dynamic incident procedure steps towards error resolution.

For more information on the how the operator can monitor and manage the incident, see the Genetec Mission Control™ User Guide.

You can modify any of these details such as email recipients, details included in the notification email, and so on by selecting the incident type from the Incident configuration page in Config Tool and modifying the corresponding automation workflow activity in the incident's Automation tab.
