Searching And Playing Back Door Events

Door Station-specific events and recordings can be searched for and played back with MxMC, just like all other events and recordings. However, there are some small differences, which are discussed in more detail below.

Note: Door Station functions are not supported by MOBOTIX MOVE cameras and third-party cameras that provide an ONVIF S-compatible interface. For an overview of how the camera functions differ, see Camera Feature Overview.


Watching and Playing Doorbell Recordings

Bell Settings
If there were visitors ringing in your absence, you will see this by checking the counter near the Bell Settings (1) in Live view.
Note: The number displayed in the counter depends on the filter settings configured in the Alarm bar.

  1. Click on to see who has rung. Instead of the live image, the event image for the last bell activation is displayed, and a red slider with the number "1" is displayed on the right side of the multislider (2).
  2. If there are several doorbell recordings, click on the red slider and drag it to the left until the next higher number is displayed in the slider. At the same time, the event image also changes to the image of the previous bell activation.
  3. To play the respective doorbell recording, click on again. The view switches to the Playback view. Click on . The recording is played back.

Alarm Bar
A missed bell activation is also indicated by a green Alarm bar. This only happens if the Alarms option has been enabled for the corresponding cameras in the Camera Configuration dialog and if the bell event has been selected as an alarm triggering event. When the Alarm bar is opened, a green bar below the event image indicates a missed bell activation. You can watch the recording of the missed bell activation directly in the Alarm bar using the Instant Playback function.

  1. To do so, move the mouse pointer over the event image. Three icons appear. Click on . The recording is played back directly in the Alarm bar.
  2. You can also jump from the Alarm bar directly to the recording in the Playback view and play it back without having to search for it there. To do this, move the mouse pointer over the event image once again and click on .

Viewing and Listening to Voice Mailbox Messages

Voice Mailbox Messages
If visitors have left messages in your absence, this is indicated by the counter next to the voice mailbox messages (1) in the Live view.

  1. Click on to see who left a message. Instead of the live image, the event image for the last message is displayed, and a red slider with the number "1" is displayed on the right side of the multislider (2).
  2. If there are several messages, click on the red slider and drag it to the left until the next higher number is displayed in the slider. At the same time, the event image also changes to the image of the previous message.
  3. To play and listen to the respective message, click on again. The view switches to the Playback view. Click on . The recording is played back.

Alarm Bar
A voice mailbox message is also signaled to you in the Alarm bar by turning red, and the new event image is marked with the icon. This only happens if the Alarms option has been enabled for the corresponding cameras in the Camera Configuration dialog and if the voice mailbox message has been selected as an alarm triggering event. To play back the message, move the mouse pointer over the event image. Three icons appear. Click on . The message is played directly in the Alarm bar.


Searching and Playing Back Door Events

Like all events, door-specific events (e.g., attempts to open a door with an invalid PIN) can also be searched and played back. Various options are available: Playback View, Grid Playback and Research View.
