How does an installer add a firewall inbound rule?

Hi. I am implementing an installer.
Since some of executable files open sockets so Windows Defender alerts for the files. This alert stops the application. So I am going to implement adding firewall rules by an installer. In order to add the rule, I use HNetCfg object.

Is there an installer that adds rules like this?
Is it OK to add a rule automatically by an installer?
Are there any points to consider, such as the security policy of the PC?
