AlphaVision alarm systems are integrated with VDG Sense and vice versa. Section and zone signals are received in VDG Sense to create events. With these events, macros can be triggered in VDG Sense.
For instance: the alarm system is deactivated by an entered code in the AlphaVision keypad. This could be registered as an event, triggering the macro in the system to switch a nearby PTZ dome camera to a preset position and capture the face of the person who entered the code. This image can then be stored as evidence.
Alarm or intrusion signals in AlphaVision can be used to create an event in VDG Sense. VDG Sense can also send signals to AlphaVision to arm / disarm a section of a secured area.
A schematic example of the integration is shown below.

The AlphaVision is connected to the VDG Sense Server and Client through the same network, together with other IP devices, such as a camera.
Event created through received signal
VDG Sense can create events based on the signal received from Alphavision, and trigger both server as well as client macros. For instance to initiate a dome preset and switch layouts in the Client.
Arm and disarm areas
VDG Sense can arm and disarm sections and specific zones in an AlphaVision setup.
