So well explain what Auto tracking IP camera sare, and what you can expect them to be able to do for opium!
Finally, in order to use an Auto tracking IP camera, you’ll need an NVR. and NVR is a network video recorder, its a device capable of connecting to and interfacing with IP cameras, also known as Network camera.s Ip is short for internet protocol address, and its how devices on a computer network identify and communicate with each other. Once you have the proper video recorder, in this case, an NVR, you’ll need to interface it with IP cameras. IP cameras utilize a function called PoE, or power over ethernet. This means that they are able to receive their power and transmit their data all over a single cat5e or cat6 ethernet cable. Depending on the recorder you decide on, it will come with a specific number of channels. This could be 4, 8, 16,. or even 32. Make sure to leave a few channels open for your auto-tracking camera!
Now that you know what IP cameras are, let’s talk a bit about PTZ cameras, which will help us fully understand what an Auto Tracker is. A PTZ is a camera that can pan- move side to side, tilt- move up and down, and zoom- magnify its view in or out. An IP-PTZ is a PTZ camera that is also an IP camera. So one important thing to note is any camera that I an auto-tracking IP camera, must also be an IP PTZ, in fact, it has to be an IP PTZ first. Not all IP PTZ cameras have auto tracking,m and it’s an important distinction. With all of that out of the way what makes an auto tracker- “an auto tracker “?
One of the included features in any Auto Tracking PTz, and also found on many IKP camera sand NVRs i IVS- or intelligent video surveillance. IVS allows you to draw imaginary tripwire and intrusion box lines in a camera view so that it can then react when objects such as people or cars cross the line.s Thee reactions can be recorded, alarm triggers, notifications, and more. For auto-tracking capable PTZ however, they have the unique power to use IVs in a way no other camera can do. If an object crosses the break line of an IV rule set by a PTZ with auto tracking enabled, that camera can then attempt to lock onto that object and follow it for a designated amount of time,e. This really works and we can even include a video of how this amazing process in action!
