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

Before you begin

What you should know

Procedure

  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:
    Type
    Select Southwest Microwave.
    Name
    Enter a unique name for this tracking system.
    Model
    Select MicroPoint POE.
  4. Add the processor modules in your perimeter:
    1. On the Specific configuration page in the Tracking system connection section, click Add processor module ().
    2. In the Add processor module dialog box, enter the following information:
      Name
      A unique name for this POE-S processor module.
      IP address
      The IP address of the processor module.
      Port
      The TCP port number that the processor module uses to send event notifications from sensors in the perimeter and to receive command and control information from the plugin.
      User and Password
      The administrator-level credentials used to connect remotely to the processor module.
    3. Click Refresh connection status () to connect.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Repeat the previous sub-steps for each processor module in your perimeter.
  5. In the Zone configuration section, click Configure zones ().
  6. In the Configure zones window, from the Map list, select a georeferenced map.
  7. Add the segments that make up your perimeter:
    1. Click Add a segment ().
    2. To start a segment, click the map.
    3. To add a corner or change the direction of the segment, click the map.
    4. To end the segment, double-click the map.
      The Configure segments dialog box opens. If it does not open, click the segment on the map, and then click Associate cells and processor modules to segment ().
    5. In the Configure segments dialog box, enter the following information, and then click OK:
      First cell
      The ID of the sensor that is closest to the start of the segment.
      First processor module
      The name of the processor module that is closest to the start of the segment.
      Last cell
      The ID of the sensor that is closest to the end of the segment.
      Last processor module
      The name of the processor module that is closest to the end of the segment.
    6. Repeat the previous sub-steps to add all the segments that make up your perimeter.
  8. Compare the Segment length (m) and Perimeter length (m) column to confirm that the length of each segment is accurate within 10 meters.
    NOTE: Cells (sensors) are positioned at equal intervals along a perimeter. The Perimeter distance (m) column calculates the distance in meters from the first cell to the last cell in the segment.
  9. If a segment differs from the actual perimeter by 10 meters or more:
    1. Verify that the correct cell IDs are specified for the first and last cells.
    2. If the cell IDs are correct, delete and redraw the segment.
  10. Name the segments and change the color by color:
    1. In the Configure zones window, select one or more segments from the list.
    2. Click Link segment to zone ().
    3. In the Link segments dialog box, enter a name for the segment, select a color, and then click OK.
      The Configure zones window showing three segments in three RSA zones.
      The segment changes color on the map. In the table, the Zone column and the Zone color column show the updated values. The Southwest Microwave zones refer to the perimeter and are different from RSA zones.
  11. On the RSA configuration page, enter the following information:
    Import on map
    Select the map that you want to use to display the devices in Security Center.
    Events
    Turn on the custom events you want to monitor for this tracking system.
    NOTE: You can modify this later on the Properties page of the tracking system.
    Fence configuration
    Choose the color for the perimeter when its state changes. The available options vary by system.

Results

The device is listed in the Area view entity tree.

After you finish

(Optional) To track RSA targets, create an RSA zone around the Southwest Microwave perimeter.
