Normally Open / Normally Closed
#1
Does anyone know of a CQC compatible device (ie, a driver is available) that can detect changes to normally open (N.O.) or normally closed (N.C.) outputs? My NVR has alarm out capability to send alarm conditions via configurable contacts in the back of the device.

Also has the ability for alarm in that would trigger actions in the NVR itself.

An example of an alarm out scenario is where I would define a trigger area in one of the cameras. When some walks into the trigger area the alarm would trigger to one of the alarm out pairs. CQC could then detect the contact closure and then take some action I define

I guess something like the Elk could do that, right? Not sure if there's anything more specialized just for that.

Any discrete input device should work. The GC100 input should also do the job. Any alarm panel should also work.

I use a PLC or an M1.

You just need to make sure it is a voltage free contact. If it puts say 5/12V on the pin you will need to do something else to get it to work.

Blue Iris is a better NVR and has better integration with CQC.

Thanks I'll try to use my GC-100-06 that I purchased for testing.

I use a dedicated hardware NVR with 32TB of WD Purple Surveillance hard drives, and PoE cameras. Cameras and NVR are from Security Camera Warehouse. All cameras plug in to the back of the NVR itself and the NVR provides the PoE and networking for each camera. I then connect NVR to my network with 1 cable and distribute the video using an HDMI splitter.

I use a dedicated NVR as well (A dedicated PC) and it only has one cable. A PoE switch handles all the connections for the cameras. If your NVR fails everything stops. If my NVR fails, cameras still work. I dont think dedicated NVR's have any benefits over a PC as a NVR.

Thanks. I've contemplated switching to an Intel NUC with BlueIris when the NVR outlives its usefulness.
