How to Setup an Intrusion Rule
Intrusion allows the camera to trigger an event if an object, such as a human or vehicle, appears or crosses a set intrusion area set by the user. For more information on how to set up an intrusion rule, please refer to the information provided below.
Setting Up an Intrusion Rule
Step 1: Log in to 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.
Step 4: Click on the Rule Type drop-down menu and select Intrusion. Click on Draw Rule to begin drawing the intrusion 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: In the Direction menu, choose how the rule will be triggered if the object enters only, exits only, or enters & exits a set region. An optional object filter can be set that will allow the rule only to be triggered if it detects an effective object such as a human or vehicle. You can choose both filters if needed.
Step 6: Enable the Record checkbox to record the event. Click Save when done.
The intrusion rule has now been properly set up for your camera. The target filtering and pixel counter can be used to refine the set rule however for the 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.
