This settings screen controls the Alarm functions. To enter this screen, press the F7 key.
Enables or disables the speaker alarm tone if an event occurs. This setting does not effect the Auto Save function.
Enter a Y to enable the alarm tone or N to disable the alarm tone. Default: Yes
The number of channels that must be in an alarm state for an alarm and/or Auto Save to occur.
Enter a number between 1 and 6. Default: 1
Note: Make sure that you do not enter a number larger than the number of channels you are recording.
Alarm Minimum Time:
The time in seconds that a small event will sound the alarm tone.
Enter a number between 1 and 1000. Default: 10 seconds
Alarm Maximum Time:
The time in seconds that a large event will sound the alarm tone.
Enter a number between 1 and 1000. Default: 120 seconds
Alarm Lockout Start Time:
Used with the Lockout End Time menu item below to set up a window of time when the alarm will not sound if SDR goes into an alarm state.
Note: Event files will still be saved during the lockout period. This feature only disables the speaker from beeping during an event.
Enter the start time in HH:MM format or -1 for no lockout time.
Lockout End Time:
Used with the Alarm Lockout Start Time menu item above to set up a window of time when the alarm will not sound if SDR goes into an alarm state.
Enter the end time in HH:MM format.
Free Disk Space:
Enter a number between 0 and 10000. Default: 8 megabytes
Example: If you are recording 3 channels, and this number is set to 8, SDR will sound an alarm if the free disk space goes below 24 megabytes.
Alarm Log File Dir:
If a directory is placed in this field, SDR will create a file called ALARM.LOG in it whenever SDR goes into an alarm / auto save state. In the ALARM.LOG file SDR will place the time that the alarm occurred. If the file is already in the directory, SDR will append the new alarm time to the end of the file. A typical line in the ALARM.LOG file will look like this:
TRIGGER=08/28/1999 15:04:14 Note: The time is local time, not UTC (unless you are running SDR on UTC time).
Enter a directory. Example: d:\newalarms
Alarm File Sys #:
Used to trigger another SDR system on a network. Enter the SDR system number to trigger in this field. When SDR goes into an alarm state it will use the Alarm Log File Dir: field to create a ALARM.LOG file that another SDR system can use to save event files.
