By integrating Axis camera into Security Center using the Traffic Sensor Management plugin, you can monitor the volume and occupancy of areas and configure alarms for capacity thresholds.

Procedure

  1. Create an area:
    1. In the Area view task, click a partition () or an area entity () you want to create the new area under.
    2. Click Add an entity (), and select Area.
    3. In the Entity name field, enter a name for the area, and click Create.
  2. For every Axis camera, create a TSS entity, and add inbound and outbound zones for every point of entry.
  3. Create an instrumented area used to calculate volume.
    NOTE: This means you should set the instrumented area's Mode option to Reflective, and add inbound zones.
  4. Create an instrumented area used to calculate occupancy.
    NOTE: This means you should set the instrumented area's Mode option to Cumulative, and add both inbound and outbound zones.
  5. Create a map for the area using an image file.
  6. Add the TSS entities, zones, and the instrumented area to the map. For more information, see Adding map objects to your maps.
