Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a way to use a virtual input to trig an event?

I want to use an event to keep an output high for about 15 minutes and the longest time avaiable in the web UI for pulsing the port is 60s.

The cameras we use have the manual trigger option to trig an event but this doesn't seem to be available in the P8221.

It is possible to pulse a port by sending the following command
http://<ip-adr>/axis-cgi/io/port.cgi?action=1:/600000\
to get ten minuets, is this a recommended way to solve the problem? It would feel better to use the event handler for this.

I have also tried to pulse one output connected to an input to trig an event to activate a second output for the desired time but this has the big advantage of using three ports instead of just one.

Found a way through plain config to add SW input to an event.

Event E0:
Name: VirtualInput0
Type: T
Enabled: true
Priority: 1
HW inputs: xxxxxxxx
SW input: IO0:H (or IO0:/)
Weekdays: 1111111
Starttime: 00:00
Duration: 24:00
Minimum trigger interval: 00:00:00
Minimum trigger time period: 00:00:00

Event E0 Actions A0:
Type: N
Protocol: HW
Order: 0
Output: 1
Duration: 10
Unit: m

It reverts to SW input IO5:/ whenever i go into normal web UI event configuration, if I use multiple IOx:s (IO1-IO8) then all reverts to IO5.

Also if I create an event in plain config I can't add an SMTP action, I get a password prompt that doesn't accept anything, I can however add the SMTP via normal web UI and then go back to plain config and change the IO numbering.
