Entity icons graphically represent entity functions, acting as a quick visual hint when you are interacting with the entity tree.

What you should know

You can change an entity's icon to match the entity's specific purpose (for example, a door entity that represents a turnstile or a parking gate).


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
  2. From the entity browser, select the entity and click the Identity tab.
  3. From the Icon list, select a new icon.
    NOTE: You can select the default icon that matches the entity's real-world function, or do one of the following:
    • Click Browse... to navigate to and select your own preferred custom icon.
    • Click Reset to restore the default icon.
  4. Click Apply.
