Note:
Before continuing, this manual assumes you have completed and understood the setup of IVS. If not, we have a document which explains this setup

Step 1 – If the above have been completed all we need is to associate an event with an event type

Spanner Icon > Video Analytics > IVS – Intelligent Video Surveillance

D-Link 
D-Link

Click “Yes”

D-Link
 
Step 2
– We need to add a new line to an existing IVS and add a new line

In our example, we have given the following details:

Name: Movement
Colour: Yellow
Counting Line: (Direction A) (this is the direction which will trigger event)

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

You will see the following “Confirmation Prompt”

D-Link
 
Click “Yes”

Step 3
– Once the above has been completed, you will now need to setup and event and action – To do this, click on “Smart Guard Configuration”, click on the (+) for “Intelligent Video Surveillance” then select you’re IVS. In our example our IVS is “Monitor Traffic”, then click “Insert

D-Link

Step 4 – Select the event created in Step 2, in our example it was:

“Movement: Zone 4-Cnt Line – Dr A”

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

Step 5 – You will now need to configure the alarm event. In our example we have given as per default

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

Step 6 – Once you have completed the “Event” you need to configure an action for the event. To do this, click on “Insert Action”

D-Link
 
You may choose from 11 options available. However, we have chosen “PTZ Preset Go”.

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

Step 7 - Configure the “PTZ Camera Preset Go” and select the camera from the drop-down box

D-Link
 
Camera:  CAM03 (D-Link DCS-6616)

Start:
Select Preset (Front(H) – this refers to a pre-set position set on the camera

Life Cycle: Stop PTZ action when event disappear

End: Left – this refers to a pre-set position set on the camera

Click on “Add”

D-Link

D-Link
 
To finalize, click on “OK”

Step 10 – To make sure this setup will take affect when DCS-250 open, you must add “Smart Guard System” service to the “Startup”

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

Result:

The overall result of this example is that any object that passes over the line we created in Step 2, will trigger an event and send a signal to the DCS-6613 camera to move to a pre-set positon. Once the event has finished the DCS-6613 will return to its default position.
