To monitor and control third-party intrusion panels from Security Center, you must install the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension on a Security Center server and on all client workstations.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

What you should know

  • For information about adding the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension to your Security Center SaaS edition deployment, consult the Security Center SaaS edition Deployment Guide 5.10.
  • The Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge and the driver to connect to third-party intrusion panels can be installed alongside the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension.
  • The Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol Bridge and driver can be installed on a distinct server, and connect to the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension hub of your intrusion manager primary server. For example, in a Security Center SaaS environment, you would install the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol Bridge and panel driver on a local server within the same network as your intrusion panels. Once installed, you will connect the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol Bridge to the hub of the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension on your hosted system.
  • Although it is possible to host the Intrusion Manager role on any Security Center server, it is a best practice to host that role on a dedicated expansion server for best system performance.
  • If you already have an Intrusion Manager role set up, install the extension on that server.
  • For your operators to have access to the features added by this extension, you must install this extension on all Security Center client workstations.

  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. From the Download Finder list, select your version of Security Center.

  6. Open the extracted folder, right-click the setup.exe file, and click Run as administrator.
  7. Follow the installation instructions.
    On the Custom Setup page, do one of the following:
    • To install the GIP Intrusion Extension, Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge, and driver on the same server, select the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension and Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge for (manufacturer) panels options.
    • To install the Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge and driver on a distinct server, select the Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge for (manufacture) panels option.
      NOTE: If you install the Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge and driver on a distinct server, following the installation process, you must connect the Genetec™ Intrusion Bridge to the Genetec™ Intrusion Protocol extension on your main server.
