Rules

UnityVision can generate alarms from rules. Rules include events, action sets, and schedules.

You create rules in the server configuration interface. When you create a rule, you either associate existing events, action sets, and a schedule with the rule, or you create new events, action sets, and a schedule for the rule.

An event triggers a rule. Examples include events from video analytics, camera inputs, and access devices.

An action set defines the actions that UnityVision takes when an event triggers a rule. Examples include displaying or recording footage from a camera, sending an email, and switching a relay.

A schedule defines when a rule is active. An event must occur during an active time in the schedule to trigger a rule.

When a rule is enabled, the occurrence of an event associated with the rule during an active period in the rule's schedule causes UnityVision to perform the actions defined in the rule's action set.
