Basler BIP2 pins are bidirectional; they can be designated as inputs or outputs. Therefore, before adding Basler BIP2 cameras in Security Center, you must define the pins as inputs or outputs in the unit’s web page.

What you should know

Basler BIP2 units only support one input pin.


  1. Open the unit's web page.
  2. Click Configuration > Camera Configuration > Input/Output.
  3. Click the Digital I/O tab, and then click the I/O 0 (pin 0) tab.
  4. From the Direction drop-down list, select Input or Output, depending on how you want the pin to be configured.
    If you want to receive hardware motion detection events in Security Center you need to select Output for all the pins.
  5. Repeat the steps for each available pin.
  6. To apply your settings, close the Input/Output section of the unit's web page.

After you finish

If the unit is already added in Security Center, then restart the unit.
