Restricted Security Area Surveillance

To monitor the restricted areas secured by your FLIR Nexus radar system in Security Center, you must first add each radar to a driver container in the Inter-System Gateway (IS Gateway). Then, you need to add the driver container as a tracking system in Config Tool.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Log on to the IS Gateway web portal:
    1. Open a web browser and enter the URL https://<GatewayServer>:4242.
      <GatewayServer> is the name or IP address of the server hosting the IS Gateway service. The default port is 4242. Use the port you configured at installation.
    2. Accept the security certificate.
    3. On the logon page, enter the Username and Password and click Sign in.
      The username and password were assigned during the Inter-System Gateway Configuration step of the IS Gateway service installation.
  2. Add a driver container for the tracking system that you want to add to Security Center:
    1. On the homepage of the IS Gateway, click the Container () tab.
    2. Click the button besides the docker engine label, and then click Add driver container.
    3. In the Add Driver Container window that opens, enter the following information:

      Driver
      Select the driver that you want to install.
      Version
      Select the driver version that you want. The latest version is selected by default.
      Label
      Label used to identify this driver container in the list of containers on the left.
      Port
      Port used to communicate with the driver.
      Network adapter
      Select the network adapter used by the driver to communicate with the IS Gateway service.
    4. The FLIR Nexus driver requires a UDP communication port to be exposed on the driver container for each device you want to connect, starting with port 10000. To expose a port, click Show advanced > Add a new port, and enter the following information:
      Protocol
      Select UDP.
      External port
      The port that is exposed to connect to the FLIR Nexus radar.
      Internal port
      The port that is used internally within the driver.
    5. If you have multiple devices, add a new exposed port for each device.
    6. Click Add.
      The IS Gateway immediately downloads the required driver container image from the repository. A notification is shown in the upper right corner of the browser page during the download process.

      After the download completes, the new driver container is displayed in the list of containers on the left, under the selected docker engine.

    7. Start the driver container. To do so, click the button beside the driver container label and click Start.
    NOTE: If you are adding multiple driver containers, make sure that each driver container has a unique port number. This will prevent any port conflicts if multiple driver containers are running at the same time.
  3. Select the FLIR driver container.
  4. On the FLIR driver configuration page, turn on the Nexus protocol option.

  5. In the Devices section, click Add a new device (), and enter the following information:
    IP Address
    The IP address of the device.
    Port
    The TCP/IP port that the device and plugin use to communicate.
    Name
    Enter a unique name for this device.
    NOTE: If you did not expose a port when you created your driver container, you will be prompted to delete and recreate the driver container with the correct configuration.
  6. Click Save.
