I have a lot of customers ask me what kind of things I can do with the alarm inputs and outputs on the DVR.  I have personally used the alarm outputs for automating things like opening and closing my garage doors, setting off sirens, turning lights on and off, unlocking mag locks, and the options are unlimited.  The alarm inputs can be used to accept signals from door sensors, window sensors, and motion sensors.  You can take these inputs and have them trigger specific cameras to record or send emails, and they can also trigger the outputs.  I am attaching a file with instructions on how to connect a common relay that we use for a multitude of different Alarm output options. Good Luck and let me know what other ways you have found to use these inputs and outputs. Laugh

Here is an updated version of the Relay Setup with a very well done diagram from one of our dealers Jon Pardue. I hope this will help any of you who are visual learners.

I use the dvr relay out with a gate clicker to open the automatic gate. It took some testing to get the wires on the right terminals in the clicker and I had to relegate that clikcer to sit there frankenstien-like just for the task, but it's awesome! From my desk, I hit the relay and the gate opens. Hit it again and the gate closes. I may never have to get out of my chair again! LOL! But actually, I use the ultimate mini dvr relay out for a siren too. I work overnight in security watching cameras, including my own home. I haven't had to set it off yet, thank goodness, but if I see anyone around my house I can just hit the relay and blast that siren! The relay outs on the ultimate mini was one of many big selling points for this choice for me in your lineup. It's one thing to see something bad going down on a camera. But what then? A siren on a relay- priceless.

Cool

Ok I think from the diagram for

Step 5. Connect a wire to the (+) pin of the Relay to the (N\O) terminal of the DVR.
Step 6. Connect a wire from the (COM) port of the DVR to the (+) pin of the Power Supply of the device.

I plug the step 5 into the 3rd hole from the top right then I plug step 6 into the 3rd hole bottom right.

This is how I set it up with the ultra mini. 

Now how do I activate it from my phone? Im trying to use it with my garage door opener. I cant even figure out how to open it with the Dvr.

Arian,

 

You are correct in your placement of the wires.  Now to activate it from the TechproSS application on your phone, once you are logged into the DVR and have at least one camera showing on the screen, you will see a triangle with an exclamation point in it.  Press this button and a dialog box will open showing the 3 alarm outputs and select the one that you are trying to use.

Arlan,

 

That power supply would work, but you can save money and go with this one http://www.securitycameraking......5-prd1.html .
