2N IP Intercom Settings

  Requirements for 2N IP Intercom

The setting of 2N IP Intercom is very easy. In the first step you have to double check the license uploaded in intercom. Therefore go to section "System – Licence – Licence Status". Next you have to switch to section "Services  – Streaming – ONVIF" and set there “Discoverable” mode as shown in the picture below.

In the second step you have to enable RTSP stream on 2N IP Intercom. Go to section "Services – Streaming – RTSP" and enable RTSP server as well as video stream. As a last step you have to choose video codec H.264 and enable UDP unicast stream. All these settings are also shown in the picture below.
It is now possible to distinguish individual ONVIF Virtual Input Ports, which are identified by the port parameter of the SetOnvifVirtualInput Action block. In the following example Virtual Input Port number 2 is controlled by pressing a quick dial button. It can be of course controlled by different Automation events such as Motion Detected or Input Changed.

  Video from 2N IP Intercom

Go to the Configuration Client, Menu Devices, item Device Tree / VRM Devices / VRM (10.0.27.151) / Pool / Streaming Gateway.

Right mouse click at Streaming Gateway, in the context menu choose Add Encoder/camera / ONVIF Encoder.
Add 2N IP intercom to the Logical Tree - Drag and drop from Device Tree / VRM Devices / VRM (10.0.27.151) / Pool / Streaming Gateway / Camera 1 (10.0.27.15) to Logical Tree / Cameras.
Go to the Operator Client, item Logical Tree / Cameras / Camera 1 (10.0.27.15). Double click opens the camera in a new window. Press the speaker button to turn audio from  2N IP Intercom on.

  Audio from 2N IP Intercom

Go to the Configuration Client, Menu Cameras and Recording, enable Audio in a column Audio.

  Events from 2N IP Intercom

Go to the Configuration Client, Menu Devices, item Device Tree / VRM Devices / VRM / Pool / Streaming Gateway / Helios IP (18), Card ONVIF Encoder Events. Events can be managed via Automation as it is demonstrated above. VirtualInput from Automation: Input Opened.

VirtualInput from Automation: Input Closed.

After setting which events correspond to input opening and closing, you can set which ONVIF Virtual Input ports will activate the inputs shown in the left hand side of the screen. Select one of the 10 provided inputs and set it as shown below. The ONVIF Source Value parameter defines which virtual port will activate this input.
It is also possible to monitor the state of 2N IP intercom output or relays. These are configured in a simillar way as the device inputs, but instead of Input Opened and Input Closed the Relay Opened and Relay Closed events are used.

 

 

 

After setting desired Inputs and Relays add them to the Logical Tree as a Camera was added there before.

 

Now you should be able to see their state in the Operator Client.

  Video from 2N IP Intercom

Once you open Bosch software (Configuration Client tool; BVMS version 4.5) go to "Devices" menu on the top bar and select "VRM devices" on the left side of the screen (in our example there was created path "VRM devices – IP_address_of_VRM – Pool – Streaming Gateway") as shown in the picture below. You will see all found IP cameras there and you will have a possibility to modify selected one (IP address of 2N IP Intercom is 173.215.12.163 in our example). Make a double click on this device and fill in username and password (admin : 2n). Click on the “Connect” button after that.

Once you press "Connect" button, you will connect to 2N IP Intercom and you will be able to set all necessary parameters for ONVIF protocol. The most important one is “Profile 2” – it is profile for H.264 codec which is used for streaming! Specify also the name of VSG camera. Do not forget to save the settings!
As a next step you have to add 2N IP Intercom camera to the right window where all used cameras are placed.
Finally go to “Maps and structure” menu on the top bar and you see there created (added) 2N IP Intercom camera. If you have any maps uploaded in the Bosch system, you can place this camera into the structure.
If everything was set according the steps above, new camera should be available in the Operator client tool structure. Select this camera and see live video stream from 2N IP Intercom.
