With the Industrial Protocol Interface plugin, you can expose Security Center data through standard protocols. The data can then be accessed by customer applications that support these protocols, like BACnet clients or SNMP managers.

Administrator tasks using Config Tool

You can use the plugin to do the following:
Create BACnet objects to expose Security Center events and states through the BACnet protocol
Create data points and assign them values configured from Security Center events. These data points are exposed as BACnet objects to a third-party BACnet client.
Create SNMP traps for Security Center events
Forward events on Security Center entities as SNMP traps to a third-party SNMP manager.
