Due to specific hardware limitations within the device, certain AI features may not be enabled simultaneously with other AI features. This is designed to allow the device to work more efficiently with any connected camera and reduce lag or other issues that may occur while in use.
The AI features available on your device may differ based on which AI type is being used by the system. There are 2 AI types, AI by Camera, which allows the NVR to use the camera's built-in AI features (if applicable), or AI by Device, which allows the camera to use the NVR's built-in AI features. Since most AI cameras differ model-to-model we will cover which AI features can be used simultaneously when using the AI by Device protocol type. Please note, if you are using a Non-AI camera with your AI NVR a smart plan may not be required. For more information on using a non-AI camera with your AI NVR, click here.
Face detection is typically used in conjunction with features such as face recognition and may not be enabled when other features such as IVS (tripwire, intrusion, etc) are enabled. For more information on how to use face detection, click here.
Face recognition is used in conjunction with face detection to locate and determine facial similarities detected by the system and may not be enabled if other features such as IVS (tripwire, intrusion, etc.) are enabled. For more information on how to use face recognition, click here.
IVS stands for intelligent video system analytics and is the basis for all the AI rules perimeter protection rules such as tripwire and intrusion, etc. Both IVS rules and Heat Map features can be used simultaneously in the system, however, it cannot be enabled if features such as face detection, face recognition, or people counting are enabled. For more information on how to use IVS features, click here.
People Counting is used to provide a statistic based on the number of people who enter and exit a certain area. This feature cannot be used in conjunction with IVS or any other AI features associated with your device and may only be available if using certain cameras that support this feature such as the IP4M-1048EW-AI or the IP4M-1046EW-AI.

The heat map tool is used to determine the overall crowd flow (density) over a certain amount of time in a specific area. Heat map provides a color-coded layout of the density with red being the highest level to blue which is the lowest level. Heat map may only be available if certain cameras support this feature, such as the IP4M-1048EW-AI or the IP4M-1046EW-AI. For more information on how to use the heat map feature, click here.
