How to Setup a Smart Plan for AI Cameras
A smart plan acts as the “master switch” for all AI features available in your camera. These features include, IVS, People Counting, Face Detection and Heat map. A Smart Plan must be saved first to use any AI features in your camera. Both IVS and Heat Map settings can be activated simultaneously, however, People Counting will only function if IVS and Heat Map as disabled.
