The RSA Surveillance plugin is a software that integrates different tracking systems into Security Center.

Components

The following components make up a tracking system integration in 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.
Tracking systems (RSA devices)
The following list describes how supported third-party systems communicate with the plugin:
  • AXIS D2050-VE short-range radars have the required communication protocols installed. Each radar connects to the IP network and communicates directly with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Avon radars communicate with the plugin through the Asterix protocol.
  • Blighter radar systems use the Interprocess communication protocol (IPC) to connect to the BlighterView HMI over TCP.
  • BOSCH IVA cameras have the required communication protocols installed. Each camera connects to the IP network and communicates directly with the plugin using an RTSP protocol over TCP/IP.
  • CIAS perimeter devices connect to the CIAS IB-System IP server to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • DEA perimeter systems communicate directly with the plugin using DEA's proprietary protocol over TCP/IP.
  • Echodyne radar systems communicate directly with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • EPSI radar systems include a server that connects and communicates with the plugin over TCP/IP. Multiple EPSI sensor units (SU) and processing units (PU) communicate with the EPSI server.
  • Fiber SenSys perimeter systems connect to the IP network and communicate directly with the plugin, using the Fiber SenSys Device SDK over TCP/IP.
  • FLIR radar systems use FLIR PSRServer to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Future Fibre Technologies perimeter sensors connect to a CAMS3 server. The CAMS3 server communicates with the plugin.
  • HGH requires the Inter-System (IS) Gateway to communicate with Security Center.
  • Magos radar systems use the MASS Server to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Navtech Radar systems use the ICD-001 Protocol and connect to the Witness software over TCP.
  • OPTEX lasers have the required communication protocols installed on each laser. Each laser connects to the IP network and communicates directly with the plugin.
  • OWL GroundAware systems use NetMQ message broker to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Quanergy lidars connect to the Qortex DTC server to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Robin Radar devices uses the Elvira System to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • SAMM Fotas devices communicate with the plugin through HTTP REST API.
  • Senstar perimeter systems communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
  • Sensurity microwave radars connect to the Sensurity Universe Service over TCP/IP. The Sensurity Universe Service communicates with the plugin.
  • SICK lasers communicate directly with the plugin over TCP.
  • Southwest Microwave sensors communicate with a POE processor module. The module connects to the IP network and uses the IPP II protocol to enable the plugin to monitor and control the sensors over TCP/IP.
  • SpotterRF radar systems use NetworkedIO API and connect over HTTP. The API is installed on a standalone server to which the plugin must connect. To ensure a secure connection, the plugin must provide a user name and password when it connects to the API.
  • Sysco NeoLine uses the SenseControl application and version 1.6.0 of a proprietary protocol to communicate with the plugin over TCP/IP.
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.
