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


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.

deister proxSafe

The deister proxSafe plugin integrates deister proxSafe key management systems into Security Center. You can use this plugin to manage proxSafe cardholders and assets in Security Center and monitor proxSafe events in Security Desk.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 (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.


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