  • Analytics, Usability & Integration Enhancements

    Beam Crossing Detection

    Commonly used for perimeter protection applications, Beam Crossing Detection is an analytic rule type that allows for a beam (or line) to be placed in a camera’s field of view. The camera watches this virtual line and sends a notification to users any time any time an object crosses the line from any direction.
