The RSA Surveillance plugin is a software module that integrates different tracking systems into Security Center.
ComponentsThe following components make up a tracking system integration in the Security Center:
- RSA Surveillance plugin
- The plugin is installed on a Security Center expansion server. The plugin forwards events from tracking devices to Security Center. The events are stored in the plugin database. Communication between the Security Center clients, Security Desk and Config Tool, are encrypted using the RabbitMQ message broker, which is installed with the plugin.
- RSA devices
- Third-party tracking devices. Some of the RSA devices support communication protocols that enable them to communicate directly with the RSA Surveillance plugin. Others must rely on their manufacturer's server and software to communicate with the plugin. For more information on how each type of device communicates with RSA Surveillance plugin, see the following topics:
- Security Center cameras
- Security Center cameras capture the
activity of intruders, called targets in
RSA Surveillance plugin. Depending on your
deployment, the cameras can be configured and managed in your tracking system or
in Security Center.
When you add your cameras to Security Center and assign them to the relevant RSA zones, you can track targets as they move through each camera's field of view. All video is recorded and stored by the Security Center Archiver.
Some cameras include intelligent video analytics and are added to Security Center as an RSA tracking system.
