Acusense cams require logging into the cam via a browser to configure siren / light strobe functions. Below us a step by step guide to show you how this is done.

Step 1

Open up SADP program (download here – SADP will give you the IP address of the recorder . You should see the IP address next to the NVR model number.

Step 2

Open up an Internet browser and type in the IP address of the NVR. If you have Internet Explorer browser, this is ideal.

Step 3

Log in using username and password of the recorder.

Step 4

Go to Configuration > Network > Advanced Settings > Other.

Tick “Enable Virtual Host

Note – if you’ve done this step before, this would already be checked.

Step 5

Go to Configuration > System > Camera Management > Click on the blue link next to the camera you wish to log into, as per image below.

Step 6

Log into the camera. (same username / password as the NVR if the NVR activated the camera)

There you have it – you’re now logged into the camera and ready to perform actions on the camera.

Step 7

Go to Configuration > Event

Step 8 – Go to Smart Event, Use Line Crossing detection to draw lines, draw minimum detection and maximum detection sizes. (as per image above)
Step 9 – Go to the Linkage method tab and select Flashing Alarm / Audible Warning
Step 10 – Go to BASIC > Flashing Alarm Light Output > Select Schedule. Set the schedule you’d like for the flashing alarm. This doesnt have ot be the same as for the speaker. ie. your flashing light can be on 24/7, and speaker for certain times if you wish.
Step 11 – Audible Alarm Output – select a warning sound and set the schedule.
Thats it. Go outside and test when the time is within the scheduled time.
