XV Gateway Installation and Setup (XV-24, XV-60, XV-96)

XV Gateway Overview

The XV Gateway with AlarmVision™ seamlessly integrates cameras, analytics, and the XR Series control panel to create smart motion detectors that trigger panel responses in real time based on real events for real results.

Virtual Keypad users can view live and recorded HD video clips, define video actions, and receive push notifications of real events in real time for real results.

You will need an active Dealer Admin account at dealer.securecomwireless.com to activate the XV Gateway.

Install the XV Gateway

The primary network connection on the XV Gateway and the XR Series panel should be connected to the same network switch. You may also use any network switch that is connected to the same subnet that the panel is connected to.

Using a Network Switch

  1. Connect a network cable from the XR Series panel to a network switch.

  2. Connect a network cable from the XV Gateway’s primary network connector, located on the back of the device, to the same network switch that the XR Series panel is connected to. This ensures that both the panel and the XV Gateway are communicating over the same network.

Using the Same Subnet

  1. Connect a network cable from the XR Series panel to a network switch.

  2. If the XV Gateway cannot be connected to the same network switch that the panel is connected to, you may use any network switch that is connected to the same subnet as the panel is connected to.

Using Dual NIC

If using a secondary NIC at initial installation, connect the secondary network connection on the XV-60 or XV-96 prior to adding the XV Gateway on Dealer Admin. Ensure the primary network connection is also connected to the XV Gateway. Refer to the Configure Secondary NIC for Private Camera Network section for more information.

  • Note: The panel can only be connected to the primary network connection through the network switch or subnet.

Enable XV Series with AlarmVision™

Note: In order to connect an XV Gateway, XR Series panels need to have Version 221 Firmware or higher.

  1. Log into Dealer Admin.

  2. Find the customer and select the relevant system. Click Edit.

Dealer Admin will automatically check to see if the XV Gateway is a model XV-24, XV-60, or XV-96.

If the XV Gateway is a model XV-24, continue to the Add Cameras to the XV Gateway section below.

If the XV Gateway is a model XV-60 or XV-96 and the second NIC port has been connected, the following prompts will display to configure a secondary NIC.

Configure Secondary NIC for Private Camera Network

There are two connection options to choose from when adding a secondary network interface to a private camera network.

The first connection option is using a DHCP Server. This option will automatically assign a dynamic IP address to the XV Gateway so it can change over time. If you can plug in a camera or device into your private network and immediately access other devices on the network, then you likely have a DHCP server.

The second connection option is using a Static IP Address. This refers to an IP address that is manually assigned to the XV Gateway and does not change automatically. If your private camera network consists of only cameras and you set up each camera with its own static IP address, then you likely do not have a DHCP server.

Before configuring a secondary network interface in Dealer Admin, connect a network cable to the second network switch. Allow 5 minutes for the XV Gateway to scan your camera network before proceeding.

  • Note: The panel can only be connected to the primary network connection through the network switch or subnet.

DHCP

  1. DHCP is automatically selected in Dealer Admin. Click Save.

    • Note: Select DHCP to allow your private camera network’s DHCP server to assign the address for your XV Gateway’s secondary NIC.

5 enable second nic - dhcp.png

Static IP

  1. Select Static IP Address from the drop-down menu.

    • Note: If your private network has a DHCP Server, ensure the Static IP Address is reserved.

6 enable second nic - static ip.png
  1. Enter the Static IP Address and Subnet Mask information. Then, click Save.

    • Note: Ensure that the Static IP Address and Subnet Mask are the same network segment used for the cameras on your private camera network.

7 enable second nic - static ip information.png

Configure a Secondary NIC After XV Gateway Has Been Activated

  1. After setting up the XV Gateway, connect a network cable to the secondary network port on the back of the XV Gateway. Allow up to 5 minutes for the XV Gateway to scan your camera network. Then, refresh the Dealer Admin browser before proceeding.

  2. Select the XV Gateway from the XV Series with AlarmVision™ section.

Add Cameras to the XV Gateway

Note: If the XV Gateway was on a different system before, ensure the XV Gateway has been deleted from the previous system on Dealer Admin before adding to the new system. Refer to the Delete an XV Gateway section below for more information.

There are two types of cameras that can be added to the XV Gateway.

The first type is Auto-Discovered Cameras. The cameras will be automatically discovered if they exist on the same subnet as the XV Gateway.

The second type is Manually Added Cameras. These cameras will be outside of the XV Gateway subnet and can be manually added with the camera’s IP Address or RTSP stream.

Refer to the sections below for details on how to add both types of cameras to an XV Gateway.

Auto-Discovered Cameras

  1. In the XV-60 with AlarmVision™ section, click + Camera to XV Gateway to add a camera to an XV Gateway.
