When configuring the areas of a panel, you can choose how events reported by an area are presented in Security Center, assign custom events to the armed and disarmed events, set up badging to arm and disarm areas, and assign cameras to areas.
On the Areas tab, the following sections let you choose how incoming events are treated in Security Center and allow you to define badging rules. You can configure any or all of these settings depending on your needs.
- Map Security Center alarms to incoming events, so that when an event occurs, the selected recipients receive a Security Center alarm and see video from linked cameras in the Alarms monitoring taskof Security Desk. You can either create alarms from this page, or choose an existing alarm. As usual, Security Center alarms are linked to recipients and cameras.
- Custom events
- Link Security Center custom events to area events.
- Select the number of times a user must present an access key or badge at the reader to arm and disarm the area.
