Link cameras to OPC entities in Security Center, so that when an event or an alarm is triggered from a rule created for those entities, you can see the cameras' video feed in Security Desk. If configured, video is recorded automatically, so you can investigate an event at any time.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, expand the OPC Client plugin role from the entity browser.
  3. Select an entity, and then click the Attached cameras tab.
  4. In the Attached cameras section, click Attach camera ().
  5. In the dialog box that opens, select a camera, and then click OK.

Results

The camera is listed in the Attached cameras section. When an event or alarm is triggered from a rule for an entity with a linked camera, the video feed is displayed in Security Desk.
