For an intrusion unit that requires more or less time to communicate with the extension than the other units in your network, you can change the connection timeout and polling frequency settings.
The parameters set on the Unit tab override the default parameters set on the Extensions tab of the Intrusion Manager role.
What you should know
- From the Config Tool home page, open the Intrusion detection task.
- Expand the Intrusion Manager role from the entity browser, and then select the intrusion detection unit you want to configure.
On the Unit tab, configure the following:
- Timeout command
- The number of milliseconds Intrusion Manager waits for the panel to respond to a test command. If the timeout is reached, the unit is disconnected. The default is 2000 milliseconds. This setting overrides the settings on the Extensions tab of the Intrusion Manager role.
- Attempts on failure
- (Master panels only) The number of times the Intrusion Manager attempts to connect to the panel after it is disconnected. The default is 3 retries. If the connection fails after the final retry, the intrusion detection unit is reported as offline.
- Control action
- (Master panels only) When enabled, commands sent to the panel include a connection and disconnection request. If you are using ATS8500 for remote connection to panels, set Control action to OFF. If you are using Titan for remote connection to panels, set Control action to ON.
- The frequency (in milliseconds) that the Intrusion Manager requests the state of the areas, inputs, and modules. The default is 5000 milliseconds. When set to 0, polling is disabled.
- Enables or disable the polling of outputs. When this is off, the extension does not request the state of the outputs on a panel. This setting is disabled by default.
- Click Apply.
