To monitor your cameras for tampering, you must configure integrity monitoring on each camera.
Enable the Camera Integrity Monitor module.
Before you begin
Camera integrity monitoring only supports PTZ cameras that are used as fixed cameras. If you change the position of a camera, you must reset the integrity monitoring feature on the camera so that the Camera Integrity Monitor can recalculate what is considered to be the 'normal' camera view.
What you should know
- From the Config Tool home page, open the Area view task.
- Select the camera to configure.
(Optional) Create a video thumbnail.
The video thumbnail is a reference image that the maintenance technician can use to reset the camera to its original position when they fix a camera tampering issue. The thumbnail is not used by the system for integrity monitoring.NOTE: You cannot create nor update the thumbnail if Encryption in transit and at rest is enabled on your camera in the camera Recording page.
- Click the Identity tab.
- Inside the thumbnail area, click Play ().
- Click Update thumbnail ().
- Click Apply.
Click the Video analytics tab and set Camera
integrity monitoring to ON.
In the Selected preset list, select the sensitivity
The sensitivity preset determines how much the Camera Integrity Monitor tolerates changes in the image. The default setting is Medium sensitivity. Switch to High sensitivity preset if you are not getting the expected tampering events, or to Low sensitivity if you are getting too many false positives.
- Click Apply.
