Surveillance common sense
View operators may find that security video from outside world and customer-device
events is usually more informative than from other events. For example, viewing video
from the time of an alarm, caused by an intrusion detection sensor at your site, makes
good sense. Video from the time of a session start might/might not make as much sense
since the event did not happen at a Multi site. For a list of outside world, customer-
device and other events, see table 16 on p. 6–17.

alarm that you selected at step 1.

Taking action, before, during or after an alarm
You can use outputs to remotely control onsite devices such as lights, sirens, or gates.

To use the outputs, View operators need specific rights in their user account. Your Multi
SA has to:
• add the Use outputs and Live video rights to the user account. This enables a
View operator to run a live session and click the output buttons.
• grant access to the site(s) assigned to the operator by supervisor.

the device. Your Multi SA can inform you as to which output matches which
