SightLogix Introducing Intuitive Setup For Simpler Perimeter Security

SightLogix announced WebConfig, an intuitive, browser-based interface for configuring SightSensor smart thermal cameras.

The initial version of WebConfig supports SightSensor HD, the affordable thermal-visible detection camera announced last October.

Future releases of WebConfig will support the entire SightLogix product line.

“SightLogix set-and-forget, never-tune analytics reduce the cost and complexity of outdoor security,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix president and CEO. “WebConfig enhances these key capabilities with an easy-to-use interface that reduces the time and effort to achieve unparalleled outdoor security.”

WebConfig includes a range of innovations to streamline the setup process, allowing users to calibrate cameras, configure key parameters and create accurate video analytic detection rules quickly and easily. Key features include:

Automatic Size Calibration

Just enter your camera’s height off the ground and the SightSensor’s advanced processing automatically calculates the actual size of all objects in the field of view. Knowing an object’s true size is foundational for video analytic detection accuracy. While SightSensors have supported map-based georegistration since their inception, WebConfig’s no-map option reduces the setup time to seconds.

Single-Click Detection Setup

WebConfig includes pre-built, comprehensive policies for detecting human-sized targets. With a single click, zones are superimposed on a snapshot of the camera’s thermal image, and you can adjust a zone’s shape directly in the browser. You can add new zones to mask high traffic areas, or add policies that detect intruders based on size, speed or direction, among other powerful combinations.

Simplified VMS and Sureview Setup

WebConfig provides easy-to-use drop-down fields for connecting a VMS and SureView Systems’ Immix platform for remote guarding applications.

SureView-specific features include pre and post-trigger video clips that are automatically sent to a monitoring center along with live video, providing critical details so operators can assess a situation in real time.

WebConfig also provides a test button that simulates an alarm for troubleshooting system connectivity.

Guided Setup and Embedded Help

Upon initial login, WebConfig presents steps to configure the camera so you can start detecting. Additionally, every setting in WebConfig includes embedded mouse-over tooltips that explain each feature and their proper use.

WebConfig also includes easy access to the SightLogix support portal with documentation, setup videos and troubleshooting tips.
