By linking cameras to intrusion detection areas and intrusion detection inputs, when an intrusion event occurs, the video from the linked cameras is displayed in the Security Desk monitoring tile.

What you should know

When cameras are associated to the intrusion detection area and related intrusion detection inputs and an event occurs, the most relevant camera is shown first in the monitoring tile. For example, when an area event occurs, only the cameras assigned to the area are shown in the monitoring tile. When an input event occurs, the camera assigned to the input is displayed first, and the cameras assigned to the area are displayed in the other tiles. You can cycle or unpack the tile to display the video from the other cameras.

To assign cameras to intrusion detection inputs, follow the instructions in Assigning cameras to intrusion detection inputs.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
  2. Select the intrusion detection area to configure, and then click the Cameras tab.
  3. Click Add an item ().
  4. In the dialog box that opens, select a camera, and then click OK.
    The camera is added to the Cameras list.
