X-Security installation and user guide

X-Security installation and user guide, Visiotech, leading CCTV distributor, offers an extensive catalogue of surveillance cameras and recorders; from conventional to professional systems, featuring advanced artificial intelligence. Among our renowned brands, such as Safire, X-Security, Uniview, Hikvision or Nivian, you can choose a wide range of devices for different applications such as general video coverage, perimeter videosurveillance, with alarm filters that can classify objects into humans or vehicles, or facial recognition.

In this article we will see how to configure an ALARMBOX in the recorders X-SECURITY

:XVR -VS2, -H and -HEVC.

For this tutorial we have used the following references:

XS-XVR6116-4KL-HEVC + XS-ALARMBOX16-6 + XS-PIRW-2EHAC.

Very important, the recorders must be updated to the of available, it is essential.

Step 1: Access the recorder and select the option “ALARM”

mceclip0.png

Step 2: Access the “ALARM INPUT” option

mceclip1.png

After accessing this option, we have the possibility to check the status of the ALARMBOX and be sure that it is working and also check which is its address.

mceclip2.png

3rd Step: Once the Alarmbox status has been checked, we are going to configure the HDCVI alarm.

mceclip3.png

In this case, as we are using a camera with PIR (in our example the XS-PIRW-2EHAC) we the HDCVI Alarm and then we will proceed to make the linkage with the desired alarm output.

mceclip4.png

In this option, we can configure the period in which the alarm is going to work, to which alarm output we can associate the event of the selected channel, configure the PTZ of another channel and, in advanced options, we can choose other options such as send e-mail, send a beep, send messages, and so on.

Step 4: the alarm output by clicking on ALARM OUT.

mceclip5.png

If we had more than one Alarmbox, we would have to choose the corresponding one (up to 4). In this case we leave selected the Alarmbox 1 and the Alarm 1 output.

After these steps, the alarm output 1 of the Alarmbox will automatically be activated when the XS-PIRW-2EHAC detects motion.

Remember that this example is basic, we could go further and perform other actions that can be comfortably explored in the ALARMBOX configuration menu.

RTSP stream in X-Security – Dahua

The general form of the RTSP chain in brands such as X-Security and Dahua is:

realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0&unicast=true

realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0&unicast=true>

 channel is the channel number
 subtype=0 indicates main stream, subtype=1 indicates substream

To take advantage of the MJPEG format:

http://<user>:<passwrod>@<IP_address>/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi?subtype=1

To play a video video:

playback?channel

Checking and Updating Firmware on X-SECURITY Recorders

In this guide we are going to indicate the necessary steps to check and update the firmware in the X-SECURITY recorders, both in the firmware version V3.2.

For this update we will use the Internet Explorer and we must install the of the recorder to the web browser.

mceclip0.png

Access the recorder and then go to INFO

mceclip1.png

First we have to check the model of the recorder and the firmware version that is currently installed.

mceclip2.png

Then we go to the Visiotech website and look for the recorder, in this case the XS-XVR6104, click on Downloads and then apply the FIRMWARE filter.

Our recorder currently has the firmware System Version: 3.210.0001.3Build Date: 12-12-2016 and the Visiotech web version is System Version: 3.218.0000002.5. Therefore we proceed to download the firmware:

mceclip3.png

The download file is a .zip file, so let's unpack it. The file we are interested in for the update via web is the .bin file.

mceclip5.png

Then go back to the recorder, press CONFIG / SYSTEM / UPGRADE and then look for the file you have downloaded by pressing Browse.

mceclip6.png

Once the file is selected, we proceed to finish the update by pressing UPGRADE.

To update the firmware of an X-SECURITY recorder with Firmware version V4.0.X or higher, the procedure will be the same, however, it changes a little the interface of the recorder.

For this procedure we will also use Internet Explorer as a browser to access the device and perform the update.

mceclip7.png

After accessing the recorder the first thing to do is to check the firmware version, press Management on the upper left side.

mceclip9.png

Then we choose INFO.

mceclip10.png

We see that the recorder is the XS-XVR6208-4KL-HEVC and the firmware version is System Version: V4.000.0000001.13, Build Date: 2019-01-24.

mceclip11.png

We download the most recent version from the Visiotech website and proceed to update.

mceclip12.png

In the option MANAGEMENT / SYSTEM / UPGRADE

mceclip15.png

Press Browse and look for the file that has been downloaded from the Visiotech website.

Remember that the file is a .zip file and you will have to unzip the files contained in it; the update file we are interested in for this procedure is the .bin file.

mceclip13.png

Once updated, we can check again the version to have the confirmation that it was successfully updated.

How to access an X-SECURITY recorder via Web with a P2P connection

We already know that many parameters can only be changed from the web interface of a recorder or directly on the recorder itself.

.

The problem starts after an installation is finished and the recorder is added to our SmartPss only by P2P.

.

Many times we are unable to open the ports on the router because we do not have access to it, but it is possible to access the recorder via browser to change certain parameters only with P2P access.

.

1 – ADDING THE P2P RECORDER TO THE SMARTPSS

mceclip0.png

mceclip1.png

mceclip2.png

.

1 – Define the name of the recorder

 Choose the method by P2P

3 – Enter the Serial Number of the recorder

4 – Leave the Default Group or choose a group created previously

5 – Enter the user

 Enter the user password

.

mceclip3.png

mceclip4.png

.

Check that the IP is that of the LocalHost, however the port is a random one; in each connection we will have a different port, but this does not prevent us from making the configurations via web interface.

.

mceclip5.png

.

Some operations such as adding an IP camera by custom protocol is only possible via web interface (in remote), from the smartpss instead is not possible.

How to enter the OSD menu of X-Security / Dahua 4N1 or HDCVI cameras

The first thing to emphasize is that the OSD menu cannot be accessed using CVBS video technology, which implies that with a traditional composite or video format we will not be able to access the OSD menu.

 

To be able to access the device, the camera must be in HDCVI, or AHD format.

 

If it is in CVBS format we must use a PFM820 control switch, interposing it between the camera and the recorder, and switch the format to HDCVI or HDTVI preferably.

 

mceclip3.png

 

A recorder or a tester is required to access the menu:

With a recorder you can access from local with a mouse and screen or from the web interface, accessed through the PTZ controls.

 

mceclip0.png

mceclip1.png

 

If the device does not allow us to enter with the configuration button, we have to try clicking on the Iris + button.

Separate outputs in X-Security

Usually we are going to find VGA and HDMI video outputs, which normally show the same information, but there are also some models that allow to display different video signals (independent outputs).

The independent output function in X-Security / Dahua is normally available when the device has 2 HDMI outputs.

This wiki explains everything related to the topic:

https://dahuawiki.com/NVR/Basic_Setup/Dual_HDMI

 

And following its explanation, only the main output lets us have control (i.e. it provides the menu tabs) although it is possible to add additional information to the secondary monitor.

 

https://support.visiotechsecurity.com/attachments/token/mli0X4htXLpsZBpZA353R27wo/?name=inline-1370024538.png

 

If, instead, we talk about a spot-type output (typically they have BNC-type connectors), this third-party YouTube video explains exactly that once a specific output is marked as a spot, menus no longer appear in it.

Selection of channels to be displayed in the default view, when connecting monitor to X-Security recorder

For this example we have used the model: XS-XVR6108AH-2FACE

Firmware version: V4.001.0000001.0, Build Date: 2020-09-08

.

By default all channels of the video recorder are displayed when the monitor and mouse are connected, in the default view.

.

To prevent all or some of the channels from being displayed, we have to modify the user group “user”, as this is the default group.

.

mceclip0.png

.

You will only be able to access all or part of the channels if you create a user group with privileges. Having to create a user within this group, we can also limit access within the channels that already have permissions.
