The Area widget opens when the current tile is showing an area.

The commands included in the area widget are recursive, meaning that they apply to all the entities that are members of the selected area. Click on one of the commands to view a menu of commands you can pick from.

The area widget commands are described below:

Button Command Description
Cameras Apply commands to all cameras that are members of the area:
Start recording
Start recording on the cameras.
Stop recording
Stop recording on the cameras.
Add bookmark
Add a bookmark to the cameras.
Block
Prevent users from viewing the video streams.
Unblock (recursive)
Allow users to view the video streams.
Doors Apply commands to all doors that are members of the area:
Override unlock schedules
Lockdown the doors that might be on an unlock schedule.
Cancel override
Put the doors back on their unlock schedules.
Unlock area perimeter doors
Unlock the perimeter doors of the area for the Standard grant time configured for those doors.
Zones Apply commands to all zones that are members of the area:
Arm
Arm the zones.
Disarm
Disarm the zones.
Intrusion detection areas Apply commands to all intrusion detection areas that are members of the area:
NOTE: Some commands might be unavailable if you lack a necessary privilege, or if the command is not supported by your intrusion panel.
Arm
Arm the selected intrusion detection areas. The following options are available:
Master
Arm all sensors in the intrusion detection areas. Any sensor can trigger the alarm when activated.
Perimeter
Arm only the sensors designated to be on the perimeter. Activity on sensors inside the areas, such as motion detectors, is ignored.
Instant
Arm the areas immediately.
Delay
Arm the areas after a delay. If you do not specify a duration, the panel default is used.
Arming mode
Normal
Arm the intrusion detection areas normally. Areas with active or troubled sensors remain disarmed.
Force
If one or more intrusion detection areas are not ready for normal arming, this option forcefully arms the areas. Force temporarily ignores active or troubled sensors during the arming sequence. If an ignored sensor ever returns to a normal state while armed, future activity can trigger the alarm.
Bypass
If one or more intrusion detection areas are not ready for normal arming, this option automatically bypasses active or troubled sensors before arming the areas. Sensors remain bypassed while the areas are armed. Disarming an area removes the bypass from sensors in that area.
Disarm
Disarm the selected intrusion detection areas. Sensor activity in the areas is ignored by the intrusion panel.
Trigger intrusion alarm
Triggers an intrusion alarm in the selected intrusion detection areas.
Silence alarm
If there is an active alarm in a selected intrusion detection area, stop the siren on the intrusion panel from beeping. Depending on your intrusion panel and the type of alarm, clicking Silence alarm can also acknowledge the alarm.
Acknowledge alarm
Acknowledge the active alarm in a selected intrusion detection area.
