Changing entities' icons

Entity icons graphically represent entity functions, acting as a quick visual hint when you are interacting with the entity tree.

What you should know

You can change an entity's icon to match the entity's specific purpose (for example, a door entity that represents a turnstile or a parking gate).

To change an entity's icon:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
  2. From the entity browser, select the entity and click the Identity tab.
  3. From the Icon list, select a new icon.
    NOTE: You can select the default icon that matches the entity's real-world function, or do one of the following:
    • Click Browse... to navigate to and select your own preferred custom icon.
    • Click Reset to restore the default icon.
  4. Click Apply (.
