    Camera Tampering Detection
    Detect when capture is being disrupted. This can be used to detect when the camera orientation is changed or the 
    video display is obscured with spray, etc. Camera  tampering detection is triggered when an area exceeding a 
    specified ratio of change is continuously altered.
    Passing Detection
    Detect when a person or moving  object crosses a specified line.
    This determines that an object is passing when the decisi on point of the object detection frame crosses a detection

    Detection begins when the 
    decision point crosses the 
    specified detection line.
    Decision PointDetection 
    Intrusion Detection
    Detect when a person or moving object crosses a specified area. This can be used to detect actions such as when 
    someone climbs over a barrier and enters a restricted area in  a museum, etc. This determines that an object is entering 
    when the decision point of the object detection frame enters the detection area and the specified duration has elapsed.
     Auto Tracking
    The camera automatically tracks an object when it is detect ed moving in a detection area. This allows monitoring 
    movement, such as of suspicious persons.
     Audio Detection
    Detects audio input to the camera. There are two types of detection.
    These are set with [Event] > [Audio Detection]  (P. 164), not with [Intelligent Function].
    [Volume Detection]:  Detects when volume level exceeds or falls below a reference volume.
    [Scream Detection]:  Detects screams or cries from people.
    Notes on Intelligent Function Settings and Operations
     When setting the Intelligent Function, do an actual detection  test to confirm that detection will be performed correctly.
     If a sudden change in lightness or darkness occurs within the  entire screen, proper detection may not be possible for up 
    to five minutes.
     When the image is zoomed in (telephoto ), detection may not work as expected.
     Detection will not be performed while the Intelligent Function is restarting.
     If the camera is operated  while configuring or using the Intelligent Functio n, [Restarting intelligent function. Please wait.] 
    is shown and the Intellige nt Function will restart.
     If the display switches between Day mode and Night mode, [R estarting intelligent function. Please wait.] is shown and 
    intelligent function will restart.

    							Setting Page
     If [Basic] > [Video] > [All Videos] > [Video Size Set] settings on the Setting Page are changed, be sure to change the 
    preset position settings ( ) and Intelligent Funct ion settings, and check operations. The Intelligent 
    Function may not operate, depending on the settings.
     Please set the Intelligent Function again if  the angle of view has changed through camera operation, or the preset/home 
    position has changed.
     If [Status] in [Detection Setting List ] has [Enabled] when the camera position is  fixed, control privileges cannot be 
    obtained by the Camera Viewer or RM Viewer . Also, the preset tour will no longer run.
     If you use a preset registered with the di gital zoom, the camera position at registration may not be able to be reproduced 
    with a high degree of accuracy. Therefore, it is recommended  that you use a preset registered in the optical zoom area 
    for the intelligent function.
     Difficult-to-Detect Subjects
    The following subjects may not be detected , or may result in erroneous detection.
     Objects or areas where there is little contrast in color or brightness with the background may not be detected.
     Small objects and changes on the screen may not be detected.
     Partial or entire changes in brightne ss on the screen may trigger detection.
     When there are multiple overlapping ob jects, there may be a change in detection. For example, objects passing 
    may either not be detected or the timing of detection may be incorrect.
     When there are large numbers of  objects in the scene, objects may not be properly detected.
    Registering Presets
    It is strongly recommended that you register the camera angle as a preset  in advance and lock the camera to that position 
    when using video detection. It is also recommended that the fiel d of view that captures targeted objects at a larger ratio be 
    For details on preset registration, please refer to  “[Camera] > [Preset] Registering Presets” (P. 131).
    Selecting the Intelligent Function Operation Mode
    Video detection and auto tracking cannot be used simultaneous ly. You can select which one to use on the Setting Page for 
    the intelligent function.
    The applied settings are retained even if you change operation modes.

    Tracking settings.
    3Set the Selected Operation Mode 
    							Setting Page
    In video detection, select the type to detect, and set the tracking area for video changes while checking images on the 
    camera. You should also set which operati ons (e-mail notification, record video, playing audio from the speaker connected 
    to the camera) should be carried  out when changes are detected.
    Steps for Configuring Video Detection
    Set an area where changes in video are detected and an ar ea where changes in video are not detected (non-detection 
    area) as necessary.
