Can SS get IVS data from the camera....?
  • I was looking at some IP cams online and noticed that some claim to have in camera analytics (IVS) can SS read this data from the camera...?

  • Hi Robert,

    SecuritySpy cannot get analytics data from IP cameras, however it can use the on-camera motion detection in Dahua, Amcrest and Hikvision cameras (this list may expand in the future as we work on this more). This is useful to offload the motion-detection task from SecuritySpy to the camera, to reduce CPU usage on the Mac running SecuritySpy.
  • Hi Ben, isn't "motion detection" data the same as "analytics"... data?


  • "Analytics" implies a bit more than just motion-detection: things like tripwire detection, missing object detection, people counting etc.

Howdy, Stranger!
