Physical tamper alerts are caused when the structure of the device moves, spins or has a sudden impact from other objects and people. This alert will provide a user with proactive notifications for a device that has been physically tampered with. Currently, Physical Tamper is available for our A100, R120, R170, R200, and R230 devices. Below is a quick clip of what a physical tamper event looks like in the Rhombus Console.
This feature is handy for detecting when the camera has been visually tampered with, like when someone covers the dome with spray paint. This feature works by using the full view of the camera window as a reference, and when it becomes "covered," the system will flag and mark the detection time. All of our Rhombus Cameras have the ability for visual tamper detection.
How to set alerts for tamper notifications
To receive tamper alerts for a specific camera, you must create an alert policy and set up alert notifications for that particular user.
To set up an alert policy, go to Rhombus Console > Settings > Alert Polices. From there, you can either create a new policy or edit a previous one. Below is a picture of tamper alerts with alert policies.
To set up alert notifications for a specific user, go to Rhombus Console > Settings > Alert Notifications > Specific User. From there, you set a time frame and get alerts for physical and visual tampering. Below is a picture of setting up tamper alerts for notifications.
