The Sync Tab in Device Setup (advanced) allows users to configure devices that support automatic system synchronisation.
Sync allows administrators to create connections to 3rd party systems that can be used to pull in device configuration information, and continually update that information when changed within the 3rd party system.
When adding a Sync with the "Add Sync" button or editing an existing Sync System there are two main configuration pages/tabs
Sync Configuration link to the 3rd party system that we are going to synchronise against. This could be the VMS or Access Control Server.
This screen you will add the details of your system including
The Friendly name of the 3rd party system
The Type of integration for this system (selected with a drop down)
The IP address / Host address of the 3rd party system
The port number used to connect.
Username / Password
The Authentication Details
The OpsLink or OpsLink+ that has been deployed to your infrastructure
The Individual Syncs are the individual entries of the sync configuration. This is where you define what individual group/collection/area of peripherals/devices to synchronise to a SureView Area. You can use this to synchronise all the cameras to a single area within SureView or to split them up into logical groups (e.g. 1st floor cameras, 2nd floor cameras etc)
When Adding or Editing individual Syncs you have the following configurable options
The friendly name for this sync
The area the synced information will be added to.
One or more parameters informing the sync system of the data it should bring in.
Note: Leaving this blank will normally bring in all synced items.
How often to resync (default 24 hours)
Enable or Disable automatic syncing
Allows the sync to automatically delete items in sureview once they've been deleted from the 3rd party system. This is off by default.
Allow update Device Settings
Allows the sync to automatically update individual settings such as default quality or PTZ settings. This is off by default
- Allow update Area
For Area Sync systems this will allow the system to synchronise individual areas (sites)
