You can add intrusion detection areas to your maps to allow Security Desk operators to monitor and control intrusion detection areas from maps.

Before you begin

  • Make sure you have intrusion detection areas 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 intrusion detection area () 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 intrusion detection area 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.
    When the intrusion detection area state changes, the map object changes to the color configured for that state, or is hidden.
  5. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
