Video Surveillance Software
The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) is crucial in this context. Some cameras might not support ONVIF or might breach its standards. Software should use ONVIF to automatically broadcast a request, locate cameras, record the devices MAC address, and in case of an IP switch, identify it via the MAC address and auto-configure RTSP streams.
SmartVision software, equipped with object detection capabilities, can significantly alleviate the strain on human observers. Instead of relying solely on pixel-change detection, which can result in false alarms due to changes in lighting or minor movements, this software can identify specific objects or unusual activities within the cameras field of view.
