ActiveView communicates with devices using special software called OSM. OSM uses its own names for event types. You can map those OSM event types to different reactions of the system and name them in a way easier for you to understand.
There are two main categories of events from devices:
ActiveView performs the following types of actions in response to Other events, depending on the event role:
To change events types and names, select Administration → OSM events configuration in the main menu.
On the OSM events configuration panel there is a list of mapped events. The list has the following columns:
Above the list, there are the following table actions:
Above the list and the table actions, there is the Accept unknown events option. If set to No, ActiveView will ignore events with name in OSM and device type not mapped in the event configuration. If set to Yes, ActiveView will treat unknown events the same as plain events.
