In KiwiVision™ video analytics, KiwiVision™ Intrusion Detector is the module that adds the intrusion detection analytics capability to Security Center.

NOTE: The KiwiVision™ video analytics module currently only includes the KiwiVision™ Intrusion Detector module.

You can use the module to do the following:

  • Add KiwiVision™ video analytics servers and entities.
  • Create and configure a KiwiVision™ Manager role.
  • Create and configure KiwiVision™ Analyzer roles.
  • Create, modify, and delete video analytics intrusion detectors in Security Center, and synchronize these intrusion detectors in the KiwiVision™ video analytics database.
  • Configure event-to-actions using KiwiVision™ video analytics events. For example, the event Object detected in field triggers the action Display in tile.
  • Import settings from a KiwiVision™ settings file (.ks).
  • Import settings from a legacy XML configuration settings file (.xml). For example, a KiwiVision™ video analytics user migrating to Security Center might want to reuse an existing configuration.
  • Export settings to a KiwiVision™ settings file (.ks).
  • Open files from other sources. For example, open a G64 file to troubleshoot a configuration or setup issue.
  • Monitor intrusion detector events as they occur.
  • Monitor live and playback video related to intrusion detector events received from KiwiVision™ video analytics in the Monitoring task.
  • Monitor entities and events for a KiwiVision™ video analytics system connected to a Security Center system.
  • Generate reports to view, export, or print an activity trail of KiwiVision™ video analytics intrusion detector events.
