Create an IPS Point



An IPS Point is an Input that is configured to work with the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). IPS Points can be motion sensors, door position sensor or any Input used for the IPS. This article provides instruction on how to configure the IPS Point to use in BluSKY.

Note: You must configure the IPS Group before configuring the IPS Point as it is a required field.


  1. Log in and navigate to IPS Points. Main Menu-> Setup-> System Setup-> IPS Point-> Create
  2. Use the  icon in the lower left side to create a new IPS Point.

  2. Next, we will give the IPS Point a Name.
  3. Choose the correct Input from the Input drop down menu.
  4. Next, we specify the IPS Point Zone Type. This important because it will determine how the individual IPS Point in the IPS Group will behave. Use our guide on IPS Group States to determine the behavior you are looking for.
