You can add input pins to your maps to allow Security Desk operators to monitor the states of input pins from maps.

Before you begin

  • Create the map where you want to add your input pins.
  • Make sure you have input pin in your Security Center 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 I/Os (), select the input pin () 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 Identity widget, click Show states, and then assign colors for the different input states.

    Tip: To avoid cluttering the map, you can hide the map object when the entity is found in certain states. Clear the states you want to hide.
    NOTE: If you use the default input icon (), the map object is shown as a coloured LED (). If you change the icon, then the map object is represented by the icon you selected with a small LED icon superimposed on top.
    When the input state changes, the map object changes to the color configured for that state, or is hidden.
  5. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
