AXIS Video Motion Detection detects and triggers an event when objects move within a predefined area in the camera view. The analytics app is preinstalled on compatible Axis video productsand is ideal for use in small, low-traffic areas in non-critical applications.
An edge-based app, AXIS Video Motion Detection analyzes video directly on the network video product. You avoid the need for costly central processing servers and gain easy scalability and savings on bandwidth use. It integrates with a video product’s event management functions and is compatible with many video management software. You can program automatic responses to event triggers, such as sending live video and email alerts. Sending and recording video only on event triggers makes reviews and searches easier, and reduces bandwidth and storage needs. Automatically playing a message from loudspeakers or turning on lights helps scare off intruders.
AXIS Video Motion Detection analyzes movement and ignores ordinary background motion to reduce false alarms. It can filter out motion from headlights, swaying foliage and small objects.
The app allows you to create multiple profiles with different configurations. Each profile supports one “include” area and three “exclude” areas. You can use different profiles simultaneously or at different times, and set different events for different profiles. Verifying that the setup works is easy with real-time visual confirmation features like bounding boxes that change color on an event trigger.
