Configuring tamper switches in the ATRIUM software
Tamper switches detect when a controller cabinet door is opened or when the cabinet is removed from the wall.
Each controller and expander may have 2 tamper switches per cabinet: a wall and a door tamper switch. However, even when both are installed, only one tamper instance is monitored by the ATRIUM software per module box since they are connected in series.
From the Hardware tab, click on the Tamper Switch icon.

- Display Name: Identifies the tamper switch throughout the ATRIUM software. We recommend using a name that is representative of the tamper switch.
