The following additional configuration steps are required for some of your units to work in Security Center.

Unit motion detection for Hanwha Techwin units
For Hanwha Techwin units, motion detection works using object sizes.
  • The Motion on threshold setting in the camera's Motion detection tab in Config Tool corresponds to the Maximum Size (pixel) motion detection setting on the unit's web page.
  • The Motion off threshold setting in Config Tool corresponds to the Minimum Size (pixel) setting on the unit's web page.
Motion events for the camera are triggered when objects that are larger than the Motion off threshold setting in Config Tool are detected, and when objects that are smaller than the Motion on threshold setting in Config Tool are detected.
Using auto-focus with Hanwha Techwin SNP-5200H units
After you execute the auto-focus command from the Specific commands section of the PTZ widget in Security Desk, you must move the PTZ before the video image starts focusing automatically.
Adding Hanwha Techwin units that support different view types
Some Hanwha Techwin units such as PNM-9020 and PNF-9010 units, have different view types that can be changed from the unit's web page (dewarped views, half views, and so on). When those video units are added in Security Center, the default view that is selected by the camera when Video Profiles are created in Security Center is not always the same for the different video streams. If you notice that a video stream is not displaying the expected view, you might have to change the view type of the Video Profile (named OmniV4XXXX) on the unit's web page.
Support for H.265
H.265 capability requires the latest supported firmware for the cameras.
NOTE: H.265 will not be added automatically with an upgrade. Cameras must be added into 5.6 and higher.

How color settings for Hanwha Techwin cameras are mapped in Security Center

When you configure the video attributes for a Hanwha Techwin camera in Security Center, the values that you set in the Color tab of the camera entity in Config Tool correspond to different values on the unit's web page.

For each color setting in Security Center, the minimum range value is -100, the middle value is 0, and the maximum value is 100. The following table shows how the range of values for each color setting in Security Center correspond to the minimum, middle, and maximum values on the unit's web page for the different Hanwha Techwin unit series.
