To speed up the KiwiVision™ video analytics setup of a video unit, you can import analytics configurations that were saved as KiwiVision™ settings files to apply the same configuration to multiple cameras.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you have enough licenses available for the analytics scenarios that you want to add.
  • Ensure that the video units that you want to set up for KiwiVision™ video analytics are available in Config Tool.

What you should know

The following files are compatible for import:
  • Configuration files that were exported from the KiwiVision™ video analytics module
  • Legacy XML configuration files (.xml) exported from KiwiVision™ Configuration.
    NOTE: Importing a legacy XML configuration file creates a Custom Intrusion Detector scenario.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Video task.
  2. From the area view, select a camera onto which you want to apply the analytics scenario.
  3. Click the Video analytics tab.
  4. Open the Options page by clicking .
  5. Click Import to open the file explorer.
  6. Navigate to the settings file (.ks or .xml) that you want to import, and click Open.
  7. Click Apply.


A scenario configuration is created from the imported settings.
