In this section UVR support different types of analyses when connect Qualvision IPC by private protocol. But only Line Crossing and Area Intrusion can be used in analogy channels after user enable the smart channel setting in part 4.3.5.1.3;

Note:

> The sum of the smart analyze may differ from different UVR product Line, but the principle is same;

> we need IPC support corresponding smat analyses function from Qualvision.

          1. Line Crossing

Crossing detection is used to detect the object crossing the set virtual line. The direction can be set as bidirectional, or from side A to B, or from side B to A. If there's object move from one side to another, it will trigger the alarm and the NVR will respond those actions as configured, such as record, show message, send email, etc.
