add-on

An add-on is a software package that adds tasks, tools, or specific configuration settings to Security Center systems.

alarm

An alarm entity describes a particular type of trouble situation that requires immediate attention and how it can be handled in Security Center. For example, an alarm can indicate which entities (usually cameras and doors) best describe the situation, who must be notified, how it must be displayed to the user, and so on.

AVL area entry and exit report

The AVL area entry and exit report task is an investigation task installed with the Security Center Fleet Monitoring plugin. Use this task to visually report vehicle metrics, such as how many times a vehicle entered or exited a defined area over time.

AVL data offload status

The AVL data offload status task is an investigation task installed with the Security Center Fleet Monitoring plugin. You can use this task to view the status of queued, in-progress, and recently completed data offload requests.

AVL data offload

The AVL data offload task is an operation task installed with the Security Center Fleet Monitoring plugin. Use this task to offload data and video data from AVL units to an external Archiver.

AVL video offload status report

The AVL video offload status report task is an investigation task in Security Center. You can use this task to generate reports on the size of video offloaded from selected AVL units per four-hour period.

entity

Entities are the basic building blocks of Security Center. Everything that requires configuration is represented by an entity. An entity can represent a physical device, such as a camera or a door, or an abstract concept, such as an alarm, a schedule, a user, a role, a plugin, or an add-on.

event

An event indicates the occurrence of an activity or incident, such as access denied to a cardholder or motion detected on a camera. Events are automatically logged in Security Center. Every event has an entity as its main focus, called the event source.

event-to-action

An event-to-action links an action to an event. For example, you can configure Security Center to trigger an alarm when a door is forced open.

expansion server

An expansion server is any server machine in a Security Center system that does not host the Directory role. The purpose of the expansion server is to add to the processing power of the system.

Federation™

The Federation™ feature joins multiple, independent Genetec™ IP security systems into a single virtual system. With this feature, users on the central Security Center system can view and control entities that belong to remote systems.

Maps

The Maps task is an operation task that heightens your situational awareness by providing the context of a map to your security monitoring and control activities.

offloading

Offloading is the process of transferring data and video data from a vehicle system to a central system.

plugin

A plugin (in lowercase) is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing program. Depending on the context, plugin can refer either to the software component itself or to the software package used to install the software component.

Plugin

Plugin (with an uppercase, in singular) is the role template that serves to create specific plugin roles.

plugin role

A plugin role adds optional features to Security Center. A plugin role is created by using the Plugin role template. By default, it is represented by an orange puzzle piece in the Roles view of the System task. Before you can create a plugin role, the software package specific to that role must be installed on your system.

Plugins

The Plugins task is an administration task that you can use to configure plugin-specific roles and related entities.

role

A role is a software component that performs a specific job within Security Center. To execute a role, you must assign one or more servers to host it.

Security Center Fleet Monitoring

The Security Center Fleet Monitoring plugin detects events from vehicles running the Security Center Vehicle Monitoring plugin. With the Security Center Fleet Monitoring plugin installed, you can track vehicle locations, detect vehicles as they enter or exit areas of interest, and offload from vehicles travel routes and video recordings.

Security Center Vehicle Monitoring

The Security Center Vehicle Monitoring plugin integrates global positioning system (GPS), accelerometer, and general-purpose input and output (GPIO) sensors onboard vehicles into Security Center as automatic vehicle locator (AVL) entities. You can use this plugin to integrate an LCD screen to monitor the status of the system and cameras within the vehicle.

Service Release

A Service Release (SR) is a standalone release that includes minor functionality improvements, bug fixes, and the integration of new hardware, intrusion devices, and plugins.
