Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 7 is a video management software that can be integrated in HSYCO with a TCP/IP connection. The current release of the I/O Server has been tested with the Avigilon Control Center

Note This driver supports only a single connection with an Avigilon Control Server. If you have multiple Avigilon Control Servers it is mandatory to add more I/O servers to HSYCO, one for each Avigilon Control Server. Every I/O server must use a different TCP/IP port.


Here's an example of how to configure Avigilon Control Center to get a message from HSYCO and trigger an action.

Select POS Trasanction in the Advanced configuration menu

Set the transaction source device to the IP address of HSYCO and TCP/IP port specified in the I/O Server declaration (e.g. 10001)

Edit the Transaction Source Data Format

Configure data format as follows

In this example HSYCO is using the following format:


Where "dummyalarm.z24.open" is a datapoint, "0" its value

Now it is possible to setup Transaction Exceptions, for example to trigger a recording when a zone is alarmed.

HSYCO Configuration

Add an AVIGILON I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:


  • IP Address: IP address of the AVIGILON ACC 7 server. Set to to allow any remote IP address to connect.
  • IP Port: TCP/IP port to use, leave blank to use default port 10001

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to false.


ID Value R/W Description
connection online R HSYCO connection socket is open
offline R HSYCO cannot create the connection socket
write value W write the message <value> on the connection socket

You can send simple events, by writing a plain text message to the write datapoint, for example:

init : {
   if (typeof String.prototype.startsWith != 'function') {
       String.prototype.startsWith = function (str){
       return this.indexOf(str) == 0;};

function IOEvent(name, value) : {
    if (name.startsWith("dummyalarm.z")){
        var message = "#\n" + name + "=" + value + "\n*";
        ioSet("avi.write", message);

This code writes on the Avigilon I/O server "avi" a message everytime a datapoint starting with "dummyalarm" change its value. The syntax of the message it the same described in the Communication section.
