Overview of Axis Loitering Guard

By tracking moving objects, such as people and vehicles, an alarm will be automatically triggered if they remain in the predefined area for too long. The application supports multiple profiles each with one 'include' area and three 'exclude' areas, alongside a choice between two loitering conditions. Users can configure different responses to various trigger settings or apply specific trigger settings for different times of the day.
Supported in live or playback mode, alarm overlays are seen as red bounding boxes around the alarm-triggering object - ideal when investigating footage for identification. Users can also be alerted of activity in real-time, before events potentially escalate, via email notification - offering a valuable crime prevention measure for any organisation.
Thanks to analysing movements and ignoring ordinary background motion, Axis False Alarm Filtering technology suppresses common sources of alarm triggers such as swaying trees. This allows users to focus on activity triggered within the scene that is deemed an actual threat. Using perspective configuration, users can associate an object's image size at different distances from the camera - helping to reduce the occurrence of false alarms.
The application can be installed onto cameras as and when required, at any point in time - providing a truly scalable solution. In addition, the intuitive system design tool helps facilitate system setup, to reduce installation and configuration time.
Please note: one licence per camera is required. This product is available as a single licence or pack of 10-licences, please select the required pack-size from dropdown menu above.
