Network Failure Detection Options
Under Detection Switch, select On to enable the network failure detection function, or
select By schedule to enable the network failure detection based on a defined schedule
Schedule Settings on page 128
If you select By schedule, you will also need to select the schedule(s) to be used
for this selection. Click on the Please select field and select the check box for
each schedule to be used.
Under Detection Type, enter the IP address you want to ping in the Ping the IP address
field. Enter how often to ping the IP address in the every [number] seconds field.
The every [number] seconds field should be set from 5 to 120 seconds. The default
setting is 30 seconds. If you set a low number, the network failure detection will be more
sensitive to network failures as it is checking much more often. A higher number of
seconds (120 seconds) will not be as sensitive at detecting network failures as a low
number would be.
Honeywell recommends that you enter the IP address of the local recording
device (DVR, NVR, and/or VMS system) which is used for local hard disk
recording. This way, if the Network Failure Detection function detects a network
failure with the local recording device, the camera can take an action such as
recording to the microSDHC card to compensate.
