When an event occurs, it will instantly appear on the map interface, giving administrators the ability to see the location of the event and instantly view real-time video feeds from the location. Administrators can then decide on the type of action to take, effectively limiting the potential damage that could happen at home, in the workplace or to other assets.

  • Interactive electronic maps: when an alarm event occurs, the associated IP camera or alarm input device will turn red on the electronic map, indicating the location of the event.
  • Users can click on IP cameras on the map interface in order to view their live feeds.
  • Users can upload maps and intuitively configure the positioning and angle of cameras using “drag and drop”.
  • Electronic map link function: conveniently switch to related maps.

Automated event action rules

Automated event action rules allow administrators to customize alarm handling rules (SOP). When an event occurs, the system can select different measures to handle the situation based on the type of event that occurred or the time the event occurred. These different measures include actively sending out email/SMS notifications to different groups, smartphone push notifications, activating multiple cameras to begin recording, assigning cameras to patrol a specific area or activating other external devices* providing automated and intelligent event handling.

*When an event occurs, event actions can notify other external devices via http commands (CGI/URL).


Event linking

Event linking

Event handling rules allows the system to automatically execute a specified action when an event occurs, minimizing any manual work that has to be done. For example, when a backyard camera detects motion, all cameras along the perimeter of a house can automatically begin to record. Or when a window is opened, PTZ cameras can immediately begin to patrol.

Event notifications

Event notifications

When cameras receive specified events, Surveillance Center can immediately send email/SMS or push notifications to selected individuals.

Linking to external devices

Linking to external devices

Support for external event settings allows other systems (e.g., door security systems) to trigger events in the Surveillance Center system. Surveillance Center can also receive events and proceed to notify external devices.


Immediate notification

When disruptions occur, you'll know immediately. You can use Surveillance Center's Event Management function to keep you informed of critical events. Whether these events are an alarm trigger, motion trigger or a disconnected camera, you can configure Surveillance Center to send you notification immediately via email or SMS.

Immediate notification

Role-based access control

Surveillance Center provides role based access control, allowing administrators to create roles for users according to their responsibilities, administrative tasks that they are able to execute, and the camera feed playback and administrative functions available to them. These roles can then be assigned to users based on their responsibilities and administrative tasks that they are able to execute, significantly increasing management convenience and flexibility.
