You can add secured areas to your maps to view people counts on maps.

Before you begin

  • Create the map where you want to add your areas to.
  • Make sure you have secured areas configured for people counting in your system.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Map designer task.
  2. Select a recent map or click Browse all maps to open an existing map.
    The selected map fills the Map designer workspace.
  3. In the toolbar, click Area view (), select the secured area () you want to add, and drag it to where you want it to be on the map.
    A tetragon appears on the map.
  4. Drag the corners of the tetragon to cover the physical space the secured area represents on the map.
    Use Shift+click to add or remove a point between two points.
  5. Use the Color and border widget to change the display attributes of the map object.
    Select Block field of view if the perimeter of the secured area corresponds to actual walls.
  6. (Optional) Click Unassigned in the Links widget to make the map object a map link.
    If you add multiple links to the map object, the operator must click three times to get to a link. The first click displays the entity that identifies the map object. The second click displays the choices of links. The third click selects a link.
  7. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
