How to Setup a Smart Plan (Smart PTZ)
A smart plan acts as a “master switch” for all AI and video metadata features associated with your camera. There are 2 types of smart plans, global and preset. A global smart plan is a preconfigured smart plan which only applies to features such as face detection and video metadata. A preset smart plan is a smart plan which is manually created by the user and can be applied to each AI rule (face detection, deep IVS, and video metadata.
Please note, it is highly recommended to manually set up a preset smart plan. For more information on setting up a preset smart plan, please refer to the information provided below.

Note: AI categories, such as face detection, deep IVS, and video metadata can only be applied to one smart plan at a time. If multiple AI categories are being used at the same time, a separate preset will need to be added and an additional smart plan will need to be enabled for the specified category.
