To integrate RSS feeds into Security Center, you must install the GeoRSS plugin on a Security Center expansion server and on all client workstations from which you want to visualize RSS feeds.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

What you should know

  • Although it is possible to run the plugin on a server that hosts other Security Center roles, it is a best practice to install the plugin on an expansion server to ensure the availability of Security Center.
  • (Optional) To improve system availability, you can enable failover for the server that hosts the plugin role.
  • If operators need the GeoRSS event reports and to see geolocated feeds on maps, you must install the plugin on all Security Center client workstations.


  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. In the Download Finder list, select Security Center, and then select your version of Security Center.
  3. In the Genetec Plugins section, download the package for your product.
  4. Run the .exe file, and then unzip the file.
    By default, the file is unzipped to C:\Genetec.
  5. Open the extracted folder, right-click the setup.exe file, and click Run as administrator.
  6. Follow the installation instructions.
  7. On the Installation Wizard Completed page, click Finish.
    IMPORTANT: The Restart Genetecâ„¢ Server option is selected by default. You can clear this option if you do not want to restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server immediately. However, you must restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server to complete the installation.
  8. Close, and then open, any instances of Config Tool and Security Desk.

After you finish

Create the GeoRSS role.
