Active components that will interface with the DCS family of Cameras. Passive components must not exceed 5V 100mA. Active components must be self-powered by an external power source. For the demonstration below a D-Link DCS -1000 was purchased from security equipment was purchased from www.smarthome.com, and some cable accessories from a local hardware store.
Basic Hardware Set-up Diagram The diagram below shows the hardware configuration for 1 Active Sensor (PIR Motion Sensor), 1 Passive Sensor (Magnetic Switch), and 1 output (For Relay) for a siren. Passive Component Notes!!! Only simple magnetic or contact switches can be used for Passive components. This limitation is by the camera only supplying 5V and less then 100mA current to those circuits.
Camera Configuration Follow the instructions for setting up the camera either wired/wireless. If this is a home and the camera is behind an Internet router additional set-up notes for you router can be found on www.dlink.com. Once logged into the camera on the main menu click/select trigger and the following screen will appear.
