Site Monitor Map
The Map shown in the Site Monitor screen shows the location of the alarms in the current event along with any relevant map pin items such as Cameras or Audio Devices
Alarm Location Detection
SureView will automatically detect the location of each incoming alarm to display on the map. The location is taken from one of the following properties (in priority order, from most specific to most general)
- Location included with the alarm
If the actual alarm data contains location data (such as an alarm contain latitude,longitude values in the data) this will be used to plot the pin.
- Plotted Alarm Point
If the individual alarm point has been manually plotted using the "Map Setup" then this location will be used.
- Area Location
The location of the Area that the alarm is associated with (based on the location configured in Area Setup)
Moving an Alarm Pin Location
Click, hold and drag an alarm pin to move it to a new location. Once the mouse button is released a prompt will ask to confirm or cancel the Location update.
Once confirmed an entry will be added to the audit trail, recording the action and the lat/long location of the previous and new location of the alarm.
