How To Setup a Missing Object Rule

The missing object rule allows the user to set a region around an object and if the object is moved or missing from the detection area an alarm will be triggered. . For more information on how to setup a crowd gathering rule, please refer to the information provided below. 

Step 1: Log into the web user interface (web UI) for your camera. For more information on how to access the web UI for your camera click here

Step 2: In the web UI, click on Setup>>Event>>Smart Plan. Click on the IVS icon and click Save


Note: If a Smart Plan is not enabled properly on your camera IVS features will not work. Please make sure to enable the Smart Plan feature before continuing. 

Step 3: Click on the IVS option in the Event menu then click on the ( + ) icon to add the rule and select the Missing Object option from the drop down menu.


Step 4: Click on Draw Rule to begin setting a detection area around the object you would like to monitor. Use your mouse to draw an area on the interface. 


This rule requires you to draw at least a four point area on the interface to function. To draw an area, click the mouse on the interface and move it down or up to create a line. Once the line is created, move the mouse left or right to create another line and repeat the process. Right click on the interface to set the area on the screen then left click on the interface when done to set the area.

Step 5: Enable the Record checkbox to record the event. Click Save when done. 


This rule has now been properly setup for your camera. The target filtering and pixel counter can be used to refine the set rule, however, for optimal experience it is highly recommended to leave these settings as default. All IVS data can be viewed in the Playback menu, if a microSD card has been inserted or can be retained via an Amcrest AI NVR.
