After you add your Restricted Security Area Surveillance zones to Security Center, you can configure the colors of the zones, automatic disarming of zones, and the alarm and event that are triggered when an operator manually sends an alert.

Before you begin

  • Add radars and zones to Security Center.

What you should know

Zone settings apply to all zones in Security Center, regardless of the type of radar selected.
A zone has three possible states: disarmed, armed and in alert.
Disarmed
The zone is not armed, so nothing happens when a target is detected. By default, a disarmed zone shows as gray on a map.
Armed
The zone is armed. When an intrusion is detected in the zone, the zone changes to an "alert" state. If configured to do so, when an intrusion is detected, an alarm and event-to-actions are triggered. By default, an armed zone shows as green on a map.
Alert
The zone is in alert because an intrusion was detected. By default, a zone in alert shows as red on a map.

You can set all of your zones to disarm themselves after a period by setting the maximum arm time.

Maximum arm time
None: Zones remain armed until a user disarms them.
Specified: Zones remain armed for the specified period. If there is an active target in the zone when it is disarmed, the zone remains in alert until the targets are acknowledged. Use this option when you want zones to disarm themselves automatically. For example, if you want zones to be armed during the night from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 A.M., set the Maximum arm time to 16 hours.
