Before you can monitor KiwiVision™ in Security Desk, you must configure intrusion detector general settings for your camera.


  1. In Config Tool select your intrusion detector.
  2. (Optional) Enable or disable Advanced mode as required.
    Advanced mode
    Displays additional KiwiVision™ information. This includes active alerts, velocity, path deviation, travel distance, and other analytics information.
  3. Select the Units type that you require. Choose from Imperial or Metric.
    Specifies the Imperial unit type. For example, 3 ft.
    Specifies the metric unit type. For example, 1 m.
    NOTE: When switching between imperial and metric units, the conversion is rounded to two decimal places. For example, 0.2 m is shown as 0.66 ft.
  4. In the General section, enter or select the following as required:
    The name of the intrusion detector.
    Tip: Give the intrusion detector a meaningful name so that it can be easily identified.
    The stream type to monitor for intrusion. Choose one of the following:
    Monitors the live video stream for intrusion.
    High resolution
    Monitors the high resolution video stream for intrusion.
    Low resolution
    Monitors the low resolution video stream for intrusion.
    Monitors the recording video stream for intrusion.
    Monitors the remote video stream for intrusion.
    Tip: If your camera uses HD or Full HD for the Live or Recording stream, consider using a different stream for analytics to minimize the load on the plugin.
    Min. alert delay
    Specifies that after an alert is sent by the intrusion detector, additional alerts are suppressed until the specified time period has elapsed. The default is 5 seconds. You can specify values in the range 0 - 300 seconds.
    Enable or disable the filters that you require for the following:
    Rain filter
    Removes small, fast moving objects from the image, such as rain or snow.
    Haze filter
    Estimates the haze density in the image based on the image brightness. The image contrast then changes to remove the haze.
  5. (Optional) Click More and select any additional options that you require:
    Show alert overlay
    Temporarily displays the triggered zone and the associated sink (exit point) area.
    Show area overlays
    Permanently displays the source (entry point) and sink (exit point) area layers.
    Show area name in overlays
    Displays the area name in the associated overlay.
    Configure with XML
    Launches a dialog box where XML configurations can be pasted.
  6. Click Apply to save the General settings.


You can now configure your intrusion detector Perspective tab settings.
