To receive alarms from the OnGuard access control system in Security Center, you must configure the alarm settings in the Properties tab.

What you should know

  • The alarms listed on this page are imported from OnGuard.
  • User-defined alarms are supported, but must have a text instruction applied in the OnGuard alarm definition in the OnGuard System Administration to be visible to the plugin. See the OnGuard OpenAccess documentation for more details.


  1. From the homepage in Config Tool, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the OnGuard plugin from the entity browser, and click the Alarms tab.
  3. In the list of Alarms, determine which action should take place for each alarm:
    1. Check the Receive triggered box option to trigger an alarm in Security Center when the plugin receives a specific alarm from OnGuard.
    2. Check the Receive acknowledge box option to receive an acknowledgment in Security Center when an alarm is acknowledged in OnGuard.
    3. Check the Send acknowledge box option to send an acknowledgment to OnGuard when an alarm is acknowledged in Security Center.
  4. Beside Recipients, click to add which users or user groups will be notified when alarms are triggered by the plugin.
    NOTE: The recipients indicated in the Recipients list are only applied to alarms when the alarm entity is created by the plugin. To add recipients after the alarm was created, right-click on the plugin role and select Alarms > Add recipients.
  5. Beside Partitions click to select which partitions you want the alarm entities to be added to when they are created by the plugin.
  6. Click Apply.
