Using Non-AI Camera on an AI NVR

The AI features on the device can be used with non-AI cameras. These features include Face Detection, Face Recognition and certain IVS rules such as tripwire and intrusion. Other features such as People Counting and Heat Map may not be available for this configuration.

When using a non-AI camera on the NVR, make sure to enable the AI by Device option in the Type menu for each compatible feature. For more information on how to use a non-ai camera on an AI NVR please refer to the information provided below. 

Step 1: Access your AI NVR and assure the camera is properly connected. For more information on how to access the web user interface (web UI) for your NVR, click here.


Step 2: On the main menu, click on AI


Note: A Smart Plan may not be available if using AI features with a non-AI camera. This is normal if using a non-AI camera on an AI NVR. 


Step 3: In the Parameters section, select which AI feature you would like to apply to the camera. In this example, we will be using IVS but the same concept can apply to other features. In the Type section, you will notice the rules are being applied to AI by Device which indicates the rules are being controlled by the NVR's built-in AI functions. 


From this point, you can not begin applying the rules to your camera. For more information on how to set up IVS, AI rules, or other useful information regarding your AI NVR, please click here.
