You can create RSA zones in Security Center by importing zones from the management software of the tracking system. Some tracking systems do not support this feature.

Before you begin


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the Restricted Security Area Surveillance role, and then click the Zones tab.
  3. Click Add zone ().
    The Add zone wizard opens.
  4. On the Zones page, select Import from tracking system.
  5. Enter the following information:
    Tracking system
    The tracking systems that contains zones for import.
    The names of the zones created in the tracking system's management software. Select one or more zones from the list to import them.
    The map in Security Center where the zone will be displayed.
    Select the type of RSA zone.
    A horizontal RSA zone is represented as a colored shape on a georeferenced Security Center map.
    A vertical RSA zone is represented as a colored shape on an image map to add context to the location of detected intrusions.
    Vertical RSA zones are only used with tracking systems that support vertical mode.
  6. Click Next page ().
  7. On the cameras page, click Add camera ().
    The Select cameras dialog box opens.
  8. Select the cameras that have a view on the restricted area the RSA zone represents, and then click OK.
  9. If you have multiple cameras, click or to set up the camera priority list.
    The system uses the cameras defined in this list to track targets that enter this RSA zone when auto-tracking is enabled. If no camera in the list can see the target according to their field of view (FoV) defined on the map, the first camera in the list is displayed.
  10. For vertical RSA zones, configure the camera overlays.
  11. If you want Security Center to show live video of a moving target the moment it enters this RSA zone, turn on the Auto-tracking option.
    If you turn this option on, you must turn off the native auto-tracking feature on your tracking systems if you are importing cameras from the latter.
  12. Click Next page ().
  13. (Optional) On the Schedules page, click Add schedule (), select one or more schedules to use for arming and disarming this RSA zone, click OK, and then click Next page ().
    The system automatically arms and disarms the zone according to schedules. If no schedule is assigned, you can still arm and disarm the zone manually.
  14. On the Intrusions page, configure the following:
    Add or remove threat categories that you want the intrusion detection algorithm to ignore. Targets that belong to the listed categories are not displayed on the map, and do not generate events when entering this RSA zone.
    Add or remove the target types that you want the intrusion detection algorithm to ignore. Targets that match a listed type are not displayed on the map, and do not generate events when entering this RSA zone.
    Alarm on intrusion
    Select the alarm that you want to trigger when an intrusion is detected. The alarm selected for this RSA zone replaces the Default alarm on intrusion on the Zones page.
  15. Click Next page ().
  16. (Optional) On the Arm/disarm page, select events to trigger the RSA zone to be armed and disarmed, and the source entity of those events.
  17. Click Finish, and then click Apply.
    The RSA zone is added to the Zones list. Imported zones are displayed as colored polygons on the map.
    NOTE: (For Spotter RF only) To update the RSA zone's position on the map to get the latest position in the tracking system it was imported from, select the imported RSA zone from the list, and click Synchronize ().
