Bosch Video Analytics integration (native) - Intelligent cameras that deliver smart data to improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs
Video Analytics is an important enabler of any strategy to substantially improve levels of security, as well as offering clear business advantages beyond security. It acts as the 'brains' of a security system, using metadata to add sense and structure to captured video footage.
Because of the deep integration you can receive specific Video Analytics events like line-crossing, object-in-field or any of the other 16 alarm tasks that are exposed in XProtect by it's given name. (Dynamic Events)
The Bosch "Analytics service plug-in" is because of this integration not needed anymore.
Receiving of alarms and creating events from Bosch cameras with Video Analytics
Traffic monitoring: Wrong-way detection, traffic counts, and detecting parked cars
Advanced intrusion detection: alarms can be set to issue loitering alarms, detect a person or object entering a pre-defined field, etc
Enforcing health and safety regulations: Video analytics can be used to ensure that no one enters or leaves a retail shop using the emergency exit
Optimize retail service level: camera's metadata can trigger an alarm in case the number of people in a queue exceeds the pre-defined threshold.
