How to Setup a Tripwire Rule (IP5M-W1150EW-AI)

Tripwire allows the camera to trigger an event if an object, such as a human or vehicle, crosses a set tripwire line. For more information on how to set up a tripwire rule, please refer to the information provided below.

Setting Up a Tripwire 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. Select Tripwire from the Rule Type menu.  Then click on Draw Rule to begin drawing the tripwire line on the interface. Use your mouse to draw a line in the interface. Right-click on the interface when done to set the line. 


Step 4: In the Direction menu, choose which direction the object will be going for the tripwire to be triggered. An optional object filter can be set for tripwire 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. 


Note: A->B = right to left, B->A = left to right, A<->B an object will be detected from both directions.

Step 6: Enable the Record checkbox to record the event. Click Save when done. 


Note: To have the event emailed to you, click on the Send Email option. Please make sure email alerts have been set up on the camera before enabling this feature. For more information on how to set up email alerts, click here.

The tripwire 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 an optimal experience it is highly recommended to leave these settings as default.
