  1. Emergency: System is unusable. This is the highest debug info level.
  2. Alert: Action must be taken immediately.
  3. Critical: System is probably working incorrectly.
  4. Error: System may not work correctly.
  5. Warning: System may work correctly but needs attention.

IP Camera Settings

A security camera can either be connected directly to the unit or to the local network. It is recommended to use an external camera connected to the local network. 

Perform the following steps to configure the device:

  • For Connect mode, select External and click Apply
  • Under IP Camera Settings, configure the following parameters:
    • User - External camera login account username
    • Password - External camera login account password
    • IP Camera brand - Select the camera's manufacturer
    • IP - IP address of the camera
  • Click the Apply button

PG1 will automatically connect to the external camera and display the status.

Intercom settings - MCAST

It is easy and convenient to use multicast function to send notice to each member of the multicast via setting the multicast key on the device and sending multicast RTP stream to pre-configured multicast address. By configuring monitoring multicast address on the device, the device monitors and plays the RTP stream which sent by the multicast address.

MCAST Settings

Equipment can be set up to monitor up to 10 different multicast addresses, used to receive the multicast RTP stream sent by the multicast address.
Here are the ways to change equipment receiving multicast RTP stream processing mode in the web interface: 


In the drop-down box to choose priority of ordinary calls, if the priority of the incoming streams of multicast RTP, lower precedence than the current common calls, device would automatically ignore the group RTP streams. If the priority of the incoming stream of multicast RTP is higher than the current common calls priority, device would automatically receive the group RTP streams, and keep the current common calls in maintained status. You can also choose to disable the function in the receiving threshold drop-down box, the device would automatically ignore all local network multicast RTP streams. The options are as follows:

  • 1 - 10 : To definite the priority of the common calls, 1 is the highest while 10 is the lowest
  • Disable : ignore all incoming multicast RTP streams
Enable the page priority

Page priority determines the device how to deal with the new receiving multicast RTP streams when it is in multicast session currently. When Page priority switch is enabled, the device would automatically ignore the low priority multicast RTP streams but receive top-level priority multicast RTP streams, and keep the current multicast session in maintained statu; If it is not enabled, the device would automatically ignore all receiving multicast RTP streams.

Note: when you press the multicast key for multicast session, both multicast sender and receiver would beep.


Multicast is a sign of listening, but also the monitoring multicast priority. The smaller number refers to higher priority.


Define your monitoring multicast name.The group name would be displayed on the screen when you answer the multicast. If you have not set, the screen would display the Host:port value.


It is a set of addresses and ports to listen, separated by a colon.


Multicast service

  • Send: when you configure the item, pressing the corresponding key on the equipment shell, equipment would directly enter the Talking interface; the premise is to ensure no current multicast call and three-way conference, so the multicast can be established.
  • Monitor: IP port and priority are configured to monitor the device, when the call is initiated by multicast and the call is successful; the device would directly enter the Talking interface.
