You can configure the auxiliary I/O ports on Axis A1601 controllers to be used as either inputs or outputs, using the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.

What you should know

  • Your Synergis™ unit must be running Synergis™ Softwire 11.2.2 or later.
  • If an auxiliary I/O is already used in a configuration, and you change its type, the I/O goes offline, and you must manually update that I/O in the configuration in Security Center.
  • By default, auxiliary I/O 1 and 2 are outputs, and auxiliary I/O 3, 4, 13, and 14 are inputs. When configured as inputs, they cannot be supervised.


  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Hardware.
  3. Click the Axis unit in the Hardware column, and then in the Channels column.
  4. In the Interfaces column, click the unit to open its settings.
  5. Scroll down to the Auxiliary I/Os section, and change the Aux IO types, as required.
    NOTE: If you change the type to an output, you must configure the normal state as Open or Closed. The normal state of an input can only be configured in Config Tool.
  6. Click Save.
