To allow Security Desk operators to focus on a point of interest, you can add camera sequences to your maps so that multiple cameras are displayed when you click a single map object.

Before you begin

  • Create the map where you want to add your camera sequences.
  • Make sure you have camera sequences in your Security Center system.

What you should know

A camera sequence marks a location on the map that requires special attention or close monitoring. You can configure a camera sequence so that when it is displayed, it turns all PTZ cameras that are part of it to a specific location (preset position).

Procedure

  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 camera sequence you want to add, and drag it to where you want it to be on the map.
    The widgets for configuring the map object appear in the right panel. The map object always takes on the identity of the entity it represents.
  4. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
