From the Intrusion detection task in Config Tool, select the intrusion detection unit to
configure, and click the

Configure the heartbeat connection on the control panel
To configure heartbeat monitoring on your control panel, you need to create two links. One link

Manager. If the link is deactivated (the server goes down), the latch timer notifies another input
through link number two, which can trigger another action on the panel.
