How to setup an alert zone?
Have you created your location and camera profile? The next step is to create an alert zone. Alert zone is an area in which you are interested in controlling activity.
So, first, click the triangular sign Alert zone in your recently created camera profile. Alert zone can be selected both for the entire frame and an arbitrary area on the screen.
Polygon is another name of the alert zone, where the camera is focused to detect alerts. It is made of corners and bones. You can and/delete as many corners/bones as possible.
The first thing that you have to do is to select recognition mode. Let's revise again all the modules:
The Human detector module detects any stranger entering your area.
The Object detector module detects any foreign object entering your area.
The Camdog mode will protect an object placed in the alert zone. If the object disappears from this zone- an alert will be triggered.
The Loitering detection module detects any stranger walking in your area for more than 5 seconds.
The ALPR recognition module determines the license plate number of the vehicle in your area.
So, let's draw an alert zone!
Hold down CTRL and create a geometrical figure. Each click by left mouse button is one more point and one more angle. You can move an alert zone by releasing CTRL and dragging the bones of our polygon with the mouse.
If you want to delete a point or an entire polygon, press the SHIFT button and left-click to select what to delete.
After editing the alert zone on the camera click Save.
Unfortunately, creating and editing the alert zone is not available in mobile platforms, so, take it into consideration.
Now, your alert zone is done and you can use the camera!
