You can add hardware to a Multi-Media unit at any time. Multi-Media software is then used to make
Multi-Media units “aware” of the hardware. The steps to do so are outlined in the road map, below.
Before adding more hardware, Honeywell recommends Testing a Connection Using View
Software, as explained on p. 7.
Road map for adding hardware
After testing the connection from an operator’s PC to Multi-Media unit, you can:
Place the Multi-Media unit and its camera(s) in their operational locations.
Use View software to run a Maintenance session at the site to specify other (optional)
hardware connected to the Multi-Media unit: extra cameras, gates controlled by a Multi-
Media operator, heat sensors.
Aside from cameras and communications, a Multi-Media unit can interface with many different
types of hardware, such as:
Sensors: motion, heat, alarm and so on.
Relay triggered devices: locks, gates, warning sirens, and so on.
Alarm panel: a fault relay offers a means to monitor the unit’s operational status, using
an external device.
Point of sale (POS) hardware, using text messaging over serial communications, or other
Securing a Multi-Media Unit
When planning where to place a unit, Honeywell suggests that your planning authority be made
aware of, and consider:
Allowing for access to the unit, if maintenance is required, yet preventing easy criminal
tampering with the system
- and -
Environmental factors that can hamper a unit: lack of ventilation, dust, condensation,
excessive heat or cold.
