If you are controlling a video wall or analog monitor, you can display a camera a tile or switch cameras on the remote workstation using a keyboard shortcut.

Before you begin

You must know the remote monitor ID. You can find the Security Desk monitor ID in the notification tray (). If it is not displayed, you can show the monitor ID icon from the Options dialog box.

What you should know

Tile IDs range from 1-26, depending on the tile pattern you are using. It is easier to select which camera to display when their logical IDs are shown in the area view. You can enable this option from the Options dialog box.

As you type the shortcut, the monitor, tile, and camera IDs are displayed at the top of your local Security Desk window beside the notification tray. This helps you keep track of what numbers you have entered.


  1. Type the remote Security Desk monitor ID, and then press the Period (.) key.
  2. Type the tile ID, and then press Period.
  3. Type the camera ID, and then press Enter.


If you did not select a tile, the camera is displayed in the first free tile.
