Security Center

Using the Remote task, you can remotely monitor and control other Security Desk applications that are part of your system, using the Monitoring task and the Alarm monitoring task.

You can use the Remote task in the following two modes:
Simple mode
Lets you control an individual Security Desk workstation.
Wall mode
Lets you control a group of Security Desk monitors acting as a video wall. If you have physical video wall set up on your site, you can control all the monitors on that wall from your local Security Desk. Each monitor from the physical video wall is added as a separate remote Security Desk in the Remote task.

The actions you perform on the remote Security Desk are displayed locally in the Remote task, and on the remote Security Desk you are controlling. While remotely monitoring another Security Desk, you can still use all your local tasks.

IMPORTANT: You cannot remotely monitor Security Desk workstations with an earlier version of Security Center installed. Backward compatibility is not supported for remote monitoring.
