add-on

An add-on is a software package that adds tasks, tools, or specific configuration settings to Security Center systems.

Genetec™ Enhanced Cardholder Management

The Genetec™ Enhanced Cardholder Management plugin is an access control plugin that extends the functionality of the Cardholder management task in Security Center. The plugin adds cardholder field options and cardholder templates.

entity

Entities are the basic building blocks of Security Center. Everything that requires configuration is represented by an entity. An entity can represent a physical device, such as a camera or a door, or an abstract concept, such as an alarm, a schedule, a user, a role, a plugin, or an add-on.

event

An event indicates the occurrence of an activity or incident, such as access denied to a cardholder or motion detected on a camera. Events are automatically logged in Security Center. Every event has an entity as its main focus, called the event source.

expansion server

An expansion server is any server machine in a Security Center system that does not host the Directory role. The purpose of the expansion server is to add to the processing power of the system.

Federation™

The Federation™ feature joins multiple, independent Genetec™ IP security systems into a single virtual system. With this feature, users on the central Security Center system can view and control entities that belong to remote systems.

plugin

A plugin (in lowercase) is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing program. Depending on the context, plugin can refer either to the software component itself or to the software package used to install the software component.

Plugin

Plugin (with an uppercase, in singular) is the role template that serves to create specific plugin roles.

plugin role

A plugin role adds optional features to Security Center. A plugin role is created by using the Plugin role template. By default, it is represented by an orange puzzle piece in the Roles view of the System task. Before you can create a plugin role, the software package specific to that role must be installed on your system.

Plugins

The Plugins task is an administration task that you can use to configure plugin-specific roles and related entities.

role

A role is a software component that performs a specific job within Security Center. To execute a role, you must assign one or more servers to host it.
