If required, you can change the IP address and port of an existing alarm receiver.
When there are multiple alarm receivers, make sure that each receiver has a unique port number, even if the receivers are on different IP addresses.
What you should know
- From the Config Tool home page, open the Intrusion detection task.
- Select the alarm receiver from the entity tree.
- Click the Properties tab.
In the Connection configuration section, change the IP
address and the port number.
NOTE: If you are using a DSC Sur-Gard receiver over a serial connection, you can change the COM port.
- Click Apply.
The unit goes online when an event is received from the receiver, which will most likely be the receiver's heartbeat message.
