To monitor events from alarm receivers in Security Desk, you must add the receivers to the Intrusion Manager role as intrusion detection units.

Before you begin

Create the Intrusion Manager role.

What you should know

When there are multiple alarm receivers, make sure that each receiver has a unique port number, even if the receivers are on different IP addresses.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Intrusion detection task.
  2. Click Intrusion detection unit ().
  3. In the Manual add dialog box, enter the following information:
    Intrusion Manager
    This setting is only visible when there are multiple Intrusion Manager roles. Choose an Intrusion Manager role.
    This setting is only visible when there are multiple partitions created for the Intrusion Manager role you selected. Choose a partition.
    The name of the company that made the device you want to add to Security Center.
    Product type
    This setting is only visible when the Receiver extension and the Bosch, DMP, or DSC intrusion detection extensions are installed on the same server. Choose the receiver you want to add.
    IP address
    The IP address of the device.
    NOTE: If you are using a DSC Sur-Gard receiver, you have the option of using the serial bus instead of TCP/IP.
    The TCP/IP port that the device uses to communicate with Security Center. The default port for Bosch is 5001, for DMP is 2002, and for DSC is 5001.
    NOTE: For DSC Sur-Gard receivers using serial connections, the default port is COM 1
    Enroll disconnected unit
    Select the Enroll disconnected unit check box to add a device that is not yet physically connected to the IP network or is connected but offline.


Two entities are created for the alarm receiver in Security Center. One entity is added to Intrusion Manager as an Intrusion detection unit and one entity is added to the Area view as a Receiver unit.

NOTE: By default, intrusion detection units have a Peripherals tab, which is not used by the receiver, so it is empty.
