Intrusion detection allows you to monitor key areas within the video that should not have moevment. Intrusion is perfect for monitoring hazardous areas, customs locations, danger zones and restricted areas of concern. It's a virtual security guard that monitors the area 24/7 and alerts you of changes that occur within that virtual area.


24/7 Monitoring

Don't depend on simple video recording, let intrusion detection be your 24hr security guard. Simply draw a square around the area of concern and let the system do the rest.

Mix Analytics

Use other signature analytics in conjunction with intrusion detection to provide the best possible security. As an example, you can use audio detection while monitoring a specific area to determine if someone is speaking in the room. 


Trigger alerts when someone enters the virtual intrusion area. Signature NVRs can send you a push notification when someone enters or leaves your pre-determined area.
