Before you can configure and use the module, you must create the KiwiVision™ Analyzer role in Config Tool.

Before you begin

Ensure that the module is activated.

What you should know

KiwiVision™ Analyzer is the role that performs video analytics processing for assigned cameras. When an intrusion is detected, an intrusion event is created in the KiwiVision Manager database. The intrusion event includes camera, time, intrusion snapshot, and metadata. These intrusion events can then be monitored in Security Desk.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that you do not run KiwiVision™ Analyzer roles on a machine that has a steady CPU usage higher than 80 %. Running KiwiVision™ Analyzer roles on a machine with CPU higher than 80 % can cause video decoding issues.
