The latest version of Security Center brings new mapping enhancements, including a new map widget for dashboards and improved zoom behaviour, providing a smoother experience for operators, particularly in large city-wide or multi-site deployments.
With the new map widgets, operators can create mini-monitoring tasks in their dashboards. They can pull cameras (or other entities) from the maps into empty tiles to view video, and easily search for entities they are interested in. The enhanced zoom feature now displays or hides layers depending on how much you zoom in or out. This helps operators see only what’s important at their current zoom level, preventing clutter. For instance, when zoomed out, doors and intrusion zones can be hidden, allowing operators to concentrate on cameras and ANPR units from a bird’s eye view. The hidden features will reappear as operators zoom in to the individual building level.
Security Center has also added new configuration enhancements for authentication services. These improvements include a new configuration wizard that walks users through the set-up process, a troubleshooting window to help detect and diagnose problems, and a testing window to check that everything is working properly before deploying it into production.
