People Counting

Description

It is to make statistics of enter and leave people in the specific area of the image, and finally it comes out the statistics data, providing kinds of data reports such as day report, month report and year report.

Note: People counting supports max half year data, it will operate auto overwrite according to hour when surpassing one year.

Prerequisites

  • Internet Explorer
  • IP Address of Device
  • IVS capable devices
  • Current Firmware

Installation Requirements

IVS people counting Camera mounting 1.jpg

The reason this example works better is that the scene is not as complicated as a horizontal shot. This provides a stable and clear background to differentiate object detection (shown as a green box around the targets) from a static object. If the background is a complicated scene, like a horizontal camera shot outdoors, then the camera loses the efficiency of detecting a moving object. This results in the People Counting IVS rule (seen as a blue box) not reliably triggering. The camera should be mounted at least 9 feet above the target if using a 3.6mm lens. Using a camera with a varifocal lens can help create a better scene if mounting options are limited. Adjusting the image settings: contrast, B&W, and gamma can aid in getting better detection, but will reduce image quality. To assess issues with IVS compatibility between the camera and NVR, please update both devices to the most current firmware and factory reset the NVR, and use the hard reset button to reset the camera.

Height Requirements

1. Vari-focal (H > 2.8 meters): vari-focal device is recommended to make people counting statistics

2. Fixed focal (only for reference):

Resolution f(mm) H(m)
2MP 2.8 2.8
2MP 3.6 3

Coverage Width Requirements

It is recommended that the width of exit and entrance should be within 3 meters, it is advised to install several cameras to make people counting statistics for the entrance whose width is more than 3 meters.

Ceiling Installation Requirements

The device is installed right above the entrance and exit, it forms 90°vertically between lens angle and horizontal. It needs to adjust focal length for vari-focal device:

Resolution Shoulder width
1280*960 Approx. 280px
1920*1080 Approx.420px
2048*1536 Approx. 448px
2560*1440 Approx. 560px
