04 - Configure User-Defined Events in XProtect

Post by admin » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:22 pm

It is relatively simple to configure the Milestone Smart Client to receive alerts and playback from Milestone. However, if you want to trigger additional actions, either by Milestone or by 3rd party devices, follow the steps below:

Here are the basic steps:
  1. In the Milestone Management Client Create a User-defined Event (beginning with the prefix "BTX_")
  2. Set up a Rule (with Milestone's "Rules" tool)
  3. Restart BTX -- Repopulates with updated list of Milestone's User-defined events.
  4. Go to BTX's "Device Map" tab
  5. Associate the Mango encoder name with the User-Defined Event created in Step #1
  6. Click "Save Mappings"
