You can monitor events from alarm receivers and connected intrusion panels, areas, and inputs from the Monitoring task in Security Desk.

What you should know

  • When an alarm receiver is added to the Intrusion Manager role, two entities are created: an intrusion detection unit and a receiver unit. Both entities have the same name. The receiver unit is added to the Area view.
  • If you want to receive event notifications from the intrusion panels, areas, and inputs that are connected to an alarm receiver, add the receiver unit to the Event monitoring list.
  • If you want to receive internal messages about the state of the alarm receiver, add the intrusion detection unit to the Event monitoring list.
  • Reports generated in the Monitoring task include the event name, event description, time stamp, source and device.
    NOTE: For area locked and unlocked events, the description includes the name of the cardholder who locked or unlocked the area.

  3. In the Area view, add any alarm receivers, intrusion panels, areas, and inputs that you want to monitor, and then click Add.
