SDS Guardian

You must install the SDS Guardian plugin on a Security Center server and on all client workstations from which you want to monitor gunshot detection events and alarms.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

What you should know

  • Although it is possible to run the plugin on a server that hosts other Security Center roles, it is a best practice to install the plugin on an expansion server to ensure the availability of Security Center.
  • (Optional) To improve system availability, you can enable failover for the server that hosts the plugin role.


  1. Download the SDS Guardian installation package from the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. In the package, browse to the SDS Guardian folder.
  3. Double-click the setup.exe file, and follow the installation instructions.
  4. On the Installation Wizard Completed page, click Finish.
    IMPORTANT: The Restart Genetecâ„¢ Server option is selected by default. You can clear this option if you do not want to restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server immediately. However, you must restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server to complete the plugin installation.
  5. Close, and then open, any instances of Config Tool and Security Desk to load the plugin.
