Ⅰ. Introduction

Event rules are used to associate events and actions. Milesight VMS Enterprise supports rich events, multiple actions and alarm modes, which you can combine freely and configure as your need. Every event can be set to trigger many kinds of actions at the same time. Also, every event can be set to trigger different actions in different time periods. After configuring the event rules, when an event is detected, it can promptly remind or automatically trigger actions according to your settings. In this case, focusing on events becomes easier and you won’t miss the events you care about.

 

By default, some rules have been automatically created for you in the system. These rules are used to notify the abnormalities that may occur in the system. If an event is detected, you will receive a notification in the Notifications panel. It is strongly recommended to keep them. You can also adjust them as needed.
