CCTV DVR Alarm Input / Alarm Relay Output Setup – This video shows how to wire and setup an alarm input and alarm relay output on a CCTV DVR. Magnetic door sensors are connected to the alarm input port of the surveillance DVR and a strobe light is connected to the alarm relay output port. An iDVR-PRO H.264 CCTV DVR is used in this video to demonstrate.

The DVR is configured to take these actions when the door that the sensors are monitoring is opened.

~ The DVR starts video recording.
~ The DVR sounds an audio buzzer.
~ The camera associated with the alarm is displayed on the screen.
~ An alarm message is displayed on the screen.

Although not configured in this example, iDVR-PRO surveillance DVRs can also be configured to send an email notification and FTP upload a snapshot of the event that occurred.

The types of burglar alarm devices used in this video are just a few examples of the types of sensors that integrate with a security DVR. Some other types include: PIR motion detectors, glass break detectors, and infrared trip wires.
