Overview

BTX (Bridge to XProtect) - Receive, filter, classify & transform data from third-party systems into XProtect events & alarms

BTX (Bridge to XProtect) analyzes incoming data streams from third-party systems such as Video Analytics, Access Control, and Security, Safety and Building Automation. BTX receives the data, then based on user-defined rules and schedules, generates XProtect event and alarm records with video bookmarks. With its data filtering features, BTX triggers user-defined alarms across many devices, enabling text and email notifications, relays and digital outputs, Smart Client matrix views, PTZ Commands, and other responses.

BTX filters include Alarm Counters, which reduce false-positives by debouncing high incoming event rates. Timers reduce noise by throttling over-frequent event rates. Schedules define event windows. "Double-Knock" maps data from any combination of devices to produce a single event or alarm. PTZ commands activate any specified camera, regardless of event origin.

BTX is a ready-made platform to integrate your third-party hardware or software with XProtect.
