Presentation on theme: "EYSTREAM INSTALLATION OF ELINE SIP CAMERAS – QUICK SETUP."— Presentation transcript:


2  First Step is to run the SIP camera utility. This allows you to set up an IP address on each camera.  eyStream software does not allow this function, and will not work with cameras that are not addressed within the local LAN Network ID scheme.  On the eyStream server – open the Windows Start Menu > All Programs > eyStream > IP Utilities. (**Available only on eLine eyStream server)  This will open a window – Open the SIP Series directory and run ‘IPSearch.exe’

3 1. Click ‘Start Search’ 2. Camera IP will appear in this box. 3. Click ‘Stop Search’ 4. Select the IP and modify it in the Address area on the right side. *Be sure to place a check in ‘Device Uses the following IP address’. 5. Click the ‘Modify’ button and wait for ‘Modify Success’ message from camera. 6. Click ‘OK’ on the message to close it. 7. Wait 30 seconds and ‘Start Search’ Again. When address returned shows The new address – the camera has rebooted and is ready. The cameras are now ready to install on the eyStream server.

4  Open the eyStream server and look at the ‘Ribbon’ at the top of the screen.  There are three sections to the ‘Ribbon’ LayoutsAlarmsSettings Click on the ‘Settings’ icon to install cameras.

5 The ribbon will change to ‘Settings’. Select ‘Devices’ to begin installing cameras. The Ribbon is designed to lead you through the steps required. We start with ‘Devices’ then move to the next step – ‘Archive’ – Then on to ‘Detection Tools’.

6 Click on the ‘Search’ icon on the top left side of the ‘List of Devices’ or click the [+] next to ‘Unallocated devices’ in the list to start the camera detection.

7 Black – ‘Fully Supported devices’ - The device's manufacturer, model, and firmware have been definitely determined; it can be added to the list of devices on the server as is. Yellow- ‘Manually adjusted devices’ - When adding the device to the list of devices on the Server, check the manufacturer, model, and firmware version used. Red – ‘Devices with non guaranteed functioning’ - The device's manufacturer, model, and firmware have not been determined. Video cameras must be manually added to the Server's equipment list When the eyStream server has finished detecting devices, the cameras detected will appear at the bottom of tree under one of these categories.

8 Select the device on the left side – and on the dialog that appears on the right – Enable the camera – and select the default eyStream server. Add all cameras and click ‘Apply’ at bottom of page. After applying, select a camera from the list and the image should appear.

9 After assigning cameras to the server – the cameras will move up to the camera list and display features discovered on each camera, including Microphone, PTZ control (Telemetry), Relays, etc. The ‘Settings’ panel will appear to the right when a camera is selected. Set your target Frame Rate, Quality, and resolution for each camera. If your camera is not a PTZ, disable ‘Telemetry’.

10 After adding all cameras to the ‘Devices’ list, select ‘Archive’ from the Ribbon Select a camera from the ‘Linked Archives’ and set it’s recording parameters in ‘Settings for recording to archive’

11 There are four choices under ‘Mode’ No recording – No archiving – view only. Constant recording – Camera will record 24/7 at the specified frame rate. Scheduled recording – Cameras will only record during scheduled times. Initiated recording – The video stream is recorded to archive when detection units are triggered or when an alarm is manually initiated. Camera icons in the Linked Archives list will change to show your settings choices.

12 Clear white – Camera is not set to record Half white, half black – Camera is set to record with scaling. (Specified FPS) All black – Camera is set for Constant or Motion recording with no scaling. A small red dot will appear on the icon when a default Archive is chosen for the camera. Add all cameras to an archive and set their recording parameters. Then click ‘Apply’ at the bottom of the page.

13 Now that all cameras are installed and added to the archive – select ‘Detection Tools’ from the ribbon. Create a tool from the list on the left.

14 There are several types of ‘Detection Tools’ available for every camera. These will appear as ‘child’ objects in the camera ‘tree’. 1.Embedded Detectors – these are tools built in to the camera. 2.Audio Detection – recording initiated by sound or loss of signal. 3.Situation Analysis – Advanced motion/loitering/counting functions. 4.Video Detection – basic motion detection functions. Click on ‘Motion’ under ‘Video Detection’ and ‘Enable’ it in the ‘Detection properties’ dialog

15 After enabling ‘Motion’ the camera image will appear with a green tint covering the image. This is your motion detection mask. To remove a section to exclude constantly moving objects, like trees blowing in wind or video display monitors that will create ‘false triggers’ simply left click on the image to draw an area. A left click will produce a ‘node’. A dotted line will appear between the nodes when you create a second and third node. Create as many nodes as needed to make the shape you want to mask. Click on the first node to ‘close the loop’.

16 After completing the area by clicking on the first node, the area becomes active. All nodes are now moveable to fine tune the area. Click the red X to delete the area at any time When the area becomes active, a four button icon will appear next to the first node. Deletes the detection zone inside the outlined area. Deletes the detection zone outside the outlined area.

17 In this example, I clicked the top right icon to remove detection zone outside my area. The area outside my zone turns red – indicating no motion detection in that area. Now I can add another detection zone. Creates a detection zone inside the outlined area Creates a detection zone outside the outlined area

18 Create another zone to capture activity in the non – detection zone. Draw the area you need. Fine tune the area by moving the nodes. Click the lower left icon to create a motion detection zone. You can create zones inside of zones to further fine tune your motion mask.

19 Now that you have the motion detection tool set up, the final step is to set how the event will be handled. Click on the grey arrow to select an action 1.Record to archive 2.Open layout 3.Run program 4.Switch relay 5.Go to preset 6.Send E-mail 7.Send SMS 8.Voice notification

20 Situation Analysis Tools If your eyStream server is licensed for ‘Forensic Search’ the ‘Situation Analysis’ tools can be used. These analytic tools greatly enhance your ‘Search’ capabilities as well as allowing endless flexibility in deploying your Detection modes where simple ‘Motion Detection’ will not suffice. Included Analytic Modules: 1. Line Crossing 2. Object Appearance in the Area 3. Loitering 4. Stop in the Area 5. Motion 6. Object Disappearance in the Area 7. Abandoned Object

21 Situation Analysis - Motion In this example, I have created a ‘Motion’ detector under Situation Analysis. The first difference you will see is that there is no automatic mask for detection. Create your motion zone the same way as in Video detection, by left clicking on the image to create nodes. Your detection zone will be inside the area drawn. To draw another area, create another ‘Motion’ detector. Then create your new zone the same way by left clicking to create the nodes. Right click on a line to create a new node if needed.

22 Situation Analysis – Line Crossing In this example we see a ‘Line Crossing’ detector. Left click to create two nodes with a line between them. This line is the ‘trip wire’. The default is bi-directional counting. To set for one-way counting, click the node on the arrow you wish to disable. The disabled arrow will turn grey. You can not disable both arrows.

23 Situation Analysis - Analytics Using situation analysis tools will cause analytic data to be displayed on screen. The analytic data icons provide information about the objects being tracked. 1.Width of the object as percent of total screen width. 2.Height of object as percent of total screen height. 3.Color of the object as an overall average. These values will help you set parameters for Situation Analysis Tools

24 Situation Analysis Settings All of the Situation Analysis tools settings are accessed by clicking on the ‘Situation Analysis’ object. (1) Enable recording of the tools metadata (2) Set Auto Sensitivity if your lighting will vary, as in an outdoor situation. (3) The other parameters (4) are the sensitivity and dwell times for the rest of the Situation Analysis tools.

25 Situation Analysis Settings In the Max Object Idle Time field, enter the maximum rest time of an object in seconds, after which it is considered abandoned. This value should be in the range [3, 1200]. *This setting is relevant for an abandoned object detection tool - recommended start value = 10 In the Maximum height and Maximum width fields, enter the maximum height and width of a detectable object as a percent of the height of the video image frame. The values should be in the range [2, 100]. In the Minimum height and Minimum width fields, enter the minimum height and width of a detectable object as a percent of the height of the video image frame. The values should be in the range [2, 100]. In the Period field, enter the time in milliseconds. This is the period of time after which the next video frame will be analyzed. This value should be in the range [0, 65535]. If the value is 0, each frame of the video image is analyzed. In the Sensitivity: abandoned object field, set the sensitivity for situational analytic tools for abandoned objects, on a scale of 5 to 30 In the Sensitivity: motion field, set the sensitivity for motion detection tools, on a scale of 1 to 80. (higher is more sensitive)

26 Situation Analysis Settings As with all other detection tools, the final step is to set each tool to record to an Archive. Click on the tool in the tree. Click on the grey arrow in the center dialog. Leave ‘Triggering Rule’ set to ‘Always’ unless you are using scheduling. Leave ‘Alarm’ set to ‘Do not initiate’ unless you are using Alarm I/O. The small darker section at the bottom with the + sign allows ‘Post Motion’ recording time.

27 Installation of all cameras is now complete. Now that all cameras are installed, we need to check the ‘Layout’. Click on the ‘Layouts’ button on the left side of the Ribbon.
