After you have added an alarm receiver to Security Center, you create the related intrusion panels (alarm panels), areas, and inputs.

Before you begin

  • Add the alarm receiver to the Intrusion Manager role.
  • Get the account code of the intrusion panels that are connected to the receiver and that you want to add to Security Center.
  • Take note of the IDs of the areas and inputs that you want to add to the receiver.

What you should know

  • For DMP only, the first time an event is reported by an unmapped area or input of a mapped intrusion panel, the extension automatically creates and maps that area or input. This means you can choose to add the intrusion panels only and let the extension add the areas and inputs automatically.
  • If you need to rename an entity, go to the Area view task, select the entity, and change its name on the Identity tab. Names cannot be changed from the Unit mapping tab.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Intrusion detection task.
  2. Select the receiver unit from the entity pane.
  3. Click the Unit mappings tab.

    1. Under the unit table, click the Add (Add button under intrusion panel table) button.
    2. Enter a name for the panel and the account code for the panel.

    1. Select an intrusion panel from the first table.

    3. Enter the ID number of the area. A valid entry is a number between 1 and 9999.
    4. Enter a unique and descriptive name for the area you are adding.
