To monitor your restricted areas from maps in Security Center, you must first add the radars from your tracking system to the plugin role.

Before you begin

  • Confirm that the tracking system and its radars are configured and functioning properly.
  • Confirm that the plugin role is configured and communicating with the tracking system.
  • (Optional) Position the cameras for each zone so that they have a view of the restricted area and make sure that the cameras are functioning properly.
  • (Optional) Add custom events in Security Center.
  • Ensure that a sufficient number of licenses are available for your radars.

What you should know

A radar is a device that detects the presence, direction, distance, and speed of objects by sending out pulses of high-frequency electromagnetic waves that are reflected off the object back to the source.

The Restricted Security Area Surveillance plugin supports multiple providers of radars, such as SpotterRF and Navtech Radar.
