You can monitor custom events and alarms generated by the OPC Client rule engine from the Security Desk Maps task.

OPC entities are displayed on maps as custom map objects. The color of the corresponding map object reflects the status of the entity.

  • The icon is green when the entity is online ().
  • The icon is yellow when the entity is in warning ()
    NOTE: The entity is yellow if there is an error in one of its properties, for example, an invalid node ID.
  • The icon is red when the entity is offline ().

For more information on creating maps, refer to Creating maps from image files.

Custom events and alarms

When custom events and alarms generated by the OPC Client rule engine are triggered, you can view them on the map.

  • When an event is triggered, the event information is displayed above the OPC map object. Clicking the event information displays the video feed of the linked camera. If no camera is linked to that entity, real-time property information is displayed.

  • When an alarm is triggered, an alarm icon is displayed above the OPC map object. Hovering over the alarm icon displays the alarm acknowledgment commands.

  • Clicking the alarm icon displays the video feed of the linked camera. If no camera is linked to that entity, real-time property information is displayed. An alarm icon is displayed next to the property that the alarm was triggered by.
