The NLSS Gateway provides audio capabilties for attached cameras.

Features

If a speaker is attached to the camera, the Gateway operator can play warning sounds from the Unified Sercurity Suite Web Interface.  These warning sounds also can be triggered using actions and event linkages, configured through the Gateway.

If the user's computer is equipped with a microphone, the user can use the Push to Talk feature in the web interface.

If the camera is equipped with a microphone, or has an external microphone attached., users can talk to a people in standing near the camera.

The camera's microphone is also used to record audio accompanying recorded video.

Optional Audio Analytics can be added to detect sounds such as glass breakage, or gun shots.

Push to Talk

A user can communicate via the camera speaker and a local microphone, if a camera supports audio. The Talk toggle allows the user to be heard through the camera’s
speaker.  This feature is available from the web interface's video player for a selected camera, or via the door options, if a camera is associated with a selected door.
