Create a rule with Video Analytics

Up to three Video Analytics rules per camera can be configured using the customer website or app. Each rule includes either one Ground Zone or one Trip Wire.

Add the Video Analytics rule

A Video Analytics rule can be created using the app and customer website.

To create a rule using the app:

  1. Log into the app.
  2. Tap Video.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. Tap Recording Rules.
  5. Tap Add New Rule.
  6. Tap Video Analytics.

Rule selection

  1. Click to select the desired camera.  If the camera needs to be calibrated, you are directed to the Calibrate page. For more information about camera calibration, see Calibrate a device for Video Analytics.

  2. Click to select the rule type.
    • Use a Tripwire rule when you expect a target to cross through the camera’s field of view or when objects enter or exit an area (e.g., a car pulling into or backing out of a driveway).

    • Use a Ground Zone rule when you expect a target to loiter in the camera’s field of view (e.g., a person delivering a package on your front porch).

  3. All Video Motion Detection (VMD) schedules associated with a camera must be deleted before setting up a Video Analytics rule. When prompted with this warning, click OK to continue.




Useful information.  Everyone should set up recording rules.
