What is the Input Signal on Device event?
Many IP Cameras include dry contacts (binary inputs and outputs) which allow hard-wire integration between IP cameras and associated devices like door sensors, alarm sensors, etc. Input Signal on Device is an event that is generated when a camera's binary input receives a signal from a connected device or system and that signal is passed to Nx Witness VMS.
