NVR Services Health Monitoring
In the default setup the DETEXI NVR is working in an unattended mode, this means it is up to the local administrator to check the status of the programs and related hardware manually. However, in most cases a PC Server accommodating the DETEXI software is in a remote location with no local human interaction, therefore a designated person or persons should be aware of the DETEXI NVR status at any given time.
You may not need the recorded video for weeks or even months, but if something happened (camera failure, power failure, network failure etc.) during that time it is possible that the NVR does not have some or any recorded video at all and the required evidence may be lost.
There are several areas that should be checked to insure that you have a healthy and functioning system —
Is the NVR running at all (power is OFF or ON)
Are all selected NVR components running
Are all cameras with an active schedule functioning and being recorded
Is there enough space to make a recording
Are there enough system resources to make a recording
Is the NVR Domain Controller network and all it’s child NVRs healthy and running
The DETEXI NVR services could fail due to unforeseen events and therefore must be monitored and controlled. To monitor the health of the NVR services you need to assign a task (action/notification that will be executed in a case of failure) to each component you wish to monitor.
Tasks to be executed on check status/ health consist of predefined tasks —
Network Client notification
E-mail notification
Phone notification
Speak notification
Execute program action
From our point of view it is most likely user will initiate the E-mail notification task or Execute program action. The Execute program action allows you to execute any external program to do whatever you want to do and is limited only by your imagination and the resources required to develop it.
Before using the e-mail notification task all necessary settings for sending e-mail (SMTP settings and e-mail account settings must be setup in the NVR Alarm Listener).

To setup NVR Services Health Monitoring you need to assign a task (action/notification that will be executed in a case of failure) to each component you wish to monitor. —
  1. In the NVR Control Center — Monitor
  2. Press Health monitor On/Off button in the bottom right corner — the system health monitor No answer task panel appears.
  3. To assign a task to the component select previously created task from the drop-down list next to the component.
  4. Assign a task to each system component.
  • Component failure if any will be detected within 3 minutes and the assigned task will be executed.
  • System will check status only for the components with the checkbox checked.
