Security Center 5.8

You can add intrusion detection units, which includes alarm receivers, and their related devices, panels, areas, sensors, and inputs to your maps to allow Security Desk operators to monitor the state of these entities from maps.

Before you begin

  • Create the map to which you want to add your intrusion detection unit.
  • Make sure you have intrusion detection units added to the Intrusion Manager role in Config Tool.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Map designer task.
  2. Select a recent map or click Browse all maps to open an existing map.
    The selected map fills the Map designer workspace.
  3. In the toolbar, click Area view (), locate and select the entity that you want to add, and drag it to where you want it on the map.
    The widgets for configuring the map object appear in the right panel. The map object always takes on the identity of the entity it represents.
  4. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
