You must connect the OnGuard plugin role with the OnGuard system through the proxy to receive events and alarms in Security Desk.

Before you begin


  1. From the home page in Config Tool, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, select the OnGuard plugin from the entity browser, and click the Properties tab.
  3. In the Host field, enter the IP address of the server that the proxy is hosted on.
  4. In the Port field, enter the port that the proxy uses to communicate with OnGuard.
  5. In the Password field, enter the password that you assigned to the web server.
  6. Click Apply.
    After you connect to the proxy, the proxy automatically generates the certificate that is displayed in the Pinned certificate section. This certificate can be changed manually in the OnGuardConfiguration.json file, which is located in the C:\ProgramData\Genetec\OnGuard folder.
