How to Create Trespassing Alerts

Trespassing alerts are a useful feature that allows users to be notified when a person or vehicle enters a specified area. This can be helpful for monitoring restricted areas or detecting potential intruders. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to create trespassing alerts using our platform.

Step 1: Select a Camera and Navigate to the Timeline Page

To create a trespassing alert, you will need to first select a camera. Once you have selected a camera, navigate to the timeline page by clicking on it.

Step 2: Click on "Alerts" on the Right Side Panel

On the right side panel, you will see an option for "Alerts." Click on this to open the panel where you can configure the alert.

Step 3: Configure the Alert

In the alert configuration panel, you will see various options to customize your alert. These include:

Step 4: Select a Region of Interest

To trigger the alert, you will need to select a region of interest. This can be the entire image, a rectangular region, or an arbitrary shape polygon. This will be the area that the system will monitor for any activity.

Step 5: Choose the Category

Next, you will need to choose the category that will trigger the alert. You can select either person detection or vehicle detection, depending on your specific needs.

Step 6: Set the Days and Time Range

You can also specify the days and time range for the alert's activity. This allows you to customize when the alert will be active and when it will be inactive.

Step 7: Configure Notifications

Finally, you can configure the alert to send notifications to an email and/or mobile number (via SMS). This will ensure that you are immediately notified when the alert is triggered.

Step 8: Receive Notifications

When the alert is triggered, a notification will be sent to the specified email or SMS. The notification will include a link to the video, allowing you to access and review the footage quickly.

Congratulations! You have successfully created a trespassing alert. You can now monitor your selected area for any potential trespassers and receive immediate notifications when activity is detected.
