What features does the Dahua Video Monitoring service offer?

The Dahua Video Monitoring integration includes the following features.

Features include:

  • GetConfig - GetConfig support allows the user to automatically obtain device details without having to input them manually. Input the IP, port, user and password as you usually would, and hit GetConfig and Immix will automatically grab the cameras, relays, alarms and audio devices (where applicable) without the need to input each of these one by one. This process only occurs at site setup. Further changes to the end device will not be kept up to date on Immix.
  • Live Video - This feature allows a live video to be loaded seamlessly within the interface with no need for extra configuration (apart from as listed on the dedicated support page).
  • Live Video (PassThrough) - The ability for live video to pass-through the server without any processing. This feature allows the server to pass H.264 encoded live video from the device through to the client without any processing on the server, resulting in much lower resource use on the Immix server.
  • Quality - Image resolution can be amended in the Immix interface, either during live view, or by setting a level during setup. In Live, select the Quality drop-down menu and choose the quality you require. The image will immediately switch to your selection.
  • PTZ Control - PTZ support allows the operator to maneuver the camera position, if the camera has this ability. By clicking and holding in the position of the live image where you wish to move the camera will perform this task. You can also use the zoom in and zoom out buttons below the live image. This feature is not included in standard VM pricing.
  • Presets - If an integration supports PTZ then the device may also be able to predetermine preset positions for the camera including zoom.
  • Multiview - Multiview opens a separate browser window to display multiple cameras at once, each within a session of its own. Without configuration Multiview will load the first 6 cameras in a listed site. Configuration of Multiview can be acheived in the Site Setup to determine the cameras that you first want the operator to see.
  • Relays - Integrations with Relay support are able to select output commands from the Immix interface. These commands can include door and gate opening. A pulsed relay can be initiated, with the target returning to its original state afterwards, or a pair of buttons can be used to manually operate both an 'On' and 'Off' state.
  • Pre Alarm Recording - This feature obtains 10 seconds of footage immediately prior to the alarm occurring.
  • Post Alarm Recording - The ability to record footage immediately further to an alarm being received in Immix. Integrations with Post Alarm Recording support will be able to record camera footage upon receipt of an alarm into Immix. Configure an Alarm Action to record a camera for the duration you require. This feature does not require support for alarms. This is purely a recording action assigned to any alarm (even from a different device).
  • Ecare -The ability to have Immix generate notifications if communication to the end device is lost. Support for Ecare means that Immix has the ability to connect to the device listed on the site in order to check whether it is alive. Connection is made by using the IP address and Port listed in the Immix site setup and ensures that the port is listening. Connection attempts are made based on the 'Ecare checking interval' set. 'Ecare fail threshold' will determine how many connection failures are made before an alarm is provided to the operator.
  • Camera Playback - The ability to choose a time in the past to view footage from. Integrations with camera Playback support can choose a time in the past to view video from, providing the footage has been stored on the end device. By selecting the calendar icon in the site the operator is asked to choose a time and date to start streaming from. This feature is not included in standard VM pricing.
  • Alarms (SMTP) - Integrations which have Alarm support are able to provide accurate input numbers and allow Immix to perform actions based on decoding input numbers. This includes initiating Scripts and assigning Priority.
  • Attached Image - The ability for the device to send alarm footage in a compatible form to be displayed in the Immix interface. Integrations with support for attached footage receive still images or video footage at the point the alarm is sent. This provides an instant point of reference for the alarm as the footage was created at the exact point the alarm was triggered. Immix is able to present this footage regardless of specific Alarm support being available. Formats Immix can display in include JPG, MJPG, MP4. Other formats, whilst still useable, may require a separate piece of viewing software.
