LINE CROSSING

LINE CROSSING - BEHAVIOR DETECTION

Analytics is no longer just as a buzzword. You can now access detailed, real-time insights about customer behavior which offers a competitive advantage in many industries. Megapixall video-based line crossing offers home owners, service industries and retailers a unique way to capture and analyze visitors or customers trespassing onto their properties.


PROTECT KEY AREAS

Line crossing allows you to watch key areas and look for specific movement. Only objects crossing the determined line will trigger an action. This is much better than normal motion detection that picks up movement only.

FULL REPORTING

Protect your properties with virtual fencing and receive alerts when someone crosses the property. This keeps false recording and alerts to a minimum.

FAST SEARCH

Finding events let alone individuals can be very hard to do when you have months of video. Signature Line Crossing allows you to easily find when a line has been crossed and view the video quickly.

NOTIFICATIONS

Use Line Crossing together with alerts to push notifications directly to your mobile phones. Once a line has been crossed in a pre-determined area you can have our NVR send your customer a push alert for instant viewing and playback.


PEOPLE COUNTING EXPLAINED

Line crossing allows you to add a line or lines on a specific camera that should not be crossed. If a set line is crossed you can have the NVR begin recording, send an alert or even sound an alarm. Line crossing is ideal for fence detection, property monitoring and parking areas that should not be entered. Looking at the example video you can see the individual turns red the moment he crosses the defined line.


Trip-wire application

Megapixall Cross Line Detection is a simple trip-wire application that comes pre-installed on Signature network cameras and NVRs. It detects moving objects that cross a user-defined virtual line and automatically triggers an alarm event to record or send an instant notification.


LINE CROSSING MENU


Cross Line Detection is suitable for general entrance and exit detection in low-traffic areas, such as at building entrances, loading docks, and parking lots. It works in most indoor and outdoor installations and in variable lighting conditions.

Signature cameras integrate with the Megapixall Signature NVRs and 3rd Party VMS event management systems, which can respond to a line crossing detection by sending push notifications, email notifications, streaming video to a video management software system, recording video to a micro sd card on the camera, as well as setting off external devices like strobes or alarms through the camera’s output ports. By recording only when an alarm is triggered, Megapixall Cross Line Detection can increase system efficiency by reducing bandwidth and storage needs. It also makes searching recorded events easier.

Megapixall Cross Line Detection allows you to draw and set a virtual line that works together with the direction detection in the camera’s live view. Once the line is drawn and placed in the image, there is no need for further adjustments. Real-time visual confirmation and color changes validate the detection in an easy way that the application records correctly.
