Restricted Security Area Surveillance

Before you can monitor the restricted areas secured by your tracking system in Security Center, you must add the Senstar system as a tracking system entity in Config Tool.

Before you begin

  • Confirm that the tracking system and its perimeter devices are configured and functioning properly.
  • Confirm that the plugin role is configured and communicating with the tracking system.
  • Create a georeferenced map in Security Center.

    For more information, see the Security Center Administrator Guide.

  • Ensure that enough perimeter system licenses are available in Restricted Security Area Surveillance role > Properties > Licenses.


  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 Senstar.
    Enter a unique name for this tracking system.
  4. On the Communication page, enter the following information:
    IP address
    The IP address of the Senstar NMS service.
    Enter port 849 and the NMS unit ID, as defined in the manufacturer documentation.
