How to Setup Video Analytics ‑ Intelligent Video Surveillance – DCS‑250

System Requirements:

 IVS Counting License
• Camera Resolution and Frame Rate (CIF/15 fps as minimum)
 
Before you commence with setting up IVS (Intelligent Video Surveillance) it would be advisable to take into the following areas of concern:

• Position and angle of camera
• What type of objects you wish to monitor and count
• Environment conditions

Step 1 – To configure IVS click on the following:

Spanner Icon > Video Analytics > IVS – Intelligent Video Surveillance

Step 2 – You should be prompted to start the “Adv” Service

D-Link
 
Click “Yes”

D-Link

Step 3 – Click on “Insert”

D-Link
 
Step 4 – Enter a name. In our example we have chosen “Monitor Traffic” and the device (CAM01 DCS-7010L) the counting license (*) will be bound to

*One License per device

D-Link
 
Click “OK”

Step 5 – Once the device has been added, you should see the live view of the camera. If not, then please check your settings (i.e. IP address and Password). You must create and define a zone you wish to monitor – To do this, right-click on live view then click “Zone/Line” and “Create zone”

D-Link
 
Step 6 – Once you have clicked on “Create zone” a default shape will appear with the capability of being dragged to the desired shape using the mouse. Move it into its final positon

D-Link
 
In our example we have added a name to the zone “Bus Lane” so it will be easier to identify and relate to later on. You may also change the colour too but we have left it as default (Red)

D-Link
 
Don’t click on “Ok” and go to Step 7

Step 7 – Click anywhere in the live view to lose focus of the new zone you had created in Step 6 and create a new line - To do this, right-click on live view then click “Zone/Line” and “Create line”

D-Link
 
Step 8 – Again you may drag and move the line into the position required

D-Link
 
In our example, we have given the same name as the zone “Bus Lane” and set the direction the object will move over for the new line. You will need to define the direction by clicking “Counting Line” and selecting the desired direction. Once you set the direction you should see an arrow with a letter

Don’t click on “Ok” and go to Step 9

Step 9 – Click anywhere in the live view to lose focus of the new line you had created in Step 7 and add counter - To do this, right-click on live view then click “Counter” and “Add counter”

D-Link
 
Position the counter on live view to the desired positon and modify as below

D-Link
 
In our example, again we have kept the exercise consistent and given the name “Bus Lane” the same. You will need to associate this counter to the line we created in Step 7. To do this, click on “Increment” then select “Inc 0” and click on the drop-down box. Select the line created, in our example it is: “Bus Lane: Cnt Line”.

Step 10 – You should see the counter increasing in total as when an object passes over the line

Click on “OK” to finalise the configuration

Step 11 – Add the following services to “Startup”. This will ensure every-time you open DCS-250 theses services will be active and running

 Spanner Icon > Setting > System Setting > General

Click “OK”
