Adding layouts to your maps

To allow Security Desk operators to view multiple cameras while focusing on the map, you can add layouts to your maps so that all the cameras associated to the layout are displayed in a tile bubble (like a camera sequence) when you click a single map object.

Before you begin

What you should know

A Security Desk operator can double-click a layout on the map to open a Monitoring task with that layout.

To add a layout to your map:

  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 (), select the layout () you want to add, and drag it to where you want it to be 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 ().
