Before you can monitor KiwiVision™ video analytics in Security Desk, you must apply video analytics scenarios to your cameras.
Before you begin
- Ensure that you have enough licenses available for the scenarios you want to add.
- Ensure that the video units for which you want to set up KiwiVision™ video analytics are available in Config Tool.
- If privacy protection is enabled on the camera, the user must have the Remove privacy protection privilege to configure KiwiVision™ video analytics.
You can use recorded video to help configure your analytics scenario. For example, you can export a short video clip (.g64 file format) from your system so that you can test your initial installation and setup.
