Restricted Security Area Surveillance

Before you can monitor the restricted areas secured by your Quanergy lidars in Security Center, you must add a Quanergy tracking system that connects to the Qortex server.

Before you begin

  • Prepare the Quanergy system.
  • Ensure that enough laser licenses are available in Restricted Security Area Surveillance role > Properties > Licenses.

What you should know

WARNING: If you move a lidar on the map in the Config Tool Map designer task, the targets are detected incorrectly. To reposition a lidar on the map, set the coordinates from the Quanergy tracking system's Properties page.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
  2. Click Add an entity (), and then select Tracking system.
    The Add tracking system wizard opens.
  3. On the Tracking system information page, enter the following information:
    Select Quanergy.
    Enter a unique name for this tracking system.
    The model of device that is supported by the RSA Surveillance plugin.
  4. On the Communication page, enter the following information:
    IP address
    The IP address of the Quanergy Qortex server.
  5. Click Refresh connection status () to connect.
  6. When the connection status turns Online (), click Next page ().
  7. On the Specific configuration page, set the coordinates of the main lidar of your Qortex server:
    Latitude and Longitude
    Enter the coordinates of the device. Coordinates are in decimal degrees using the World Geodetic System (WGS84) format. You can use a web site like to find the coordinates of a specific civic address.
    With map
    To set the device's position using a map, select With map. In the Map list, choose a georeferenced map. From the map, zoom in and out as needed using the map controls. Click the map to place the device. After clicking the map, the Latitude and Longitude settings are updated with the coordinates from the map.
    If the device has a field of view, identify the physical orientation of the device using compass points. For example: If the device's field of view point towards true North, set the orientation to 0 degrees. You can use a compass to find the degrees. Or, select With map, click the green dot and drag it to the device's orientation.
