4. AI Detection Plugin Setup and Configuration

Plugin Manager Configuration

Now open your Network Optix Meta Client, and add one or more camera's.
A 'Plugin' tab should then be visible when opening a camera's settings:
Camera Settings Navigation
The plugin can be enabled/disabled per camera on the Plugins tab:
Scailable Plugin Tab

Visualizing Bounding Boxes

If a model which outputs compatible bounding boxes is selcted and running the Edge AI Manager, bounding boxes can be visualized by visiting the Objects tab on the right pane in the NX Meta Client.
Bounding boxes are only visible when the Objects tab is actively selected.

Adding Event Rules

The Scailable plugin can generate a number of events. Network Optix gives the user control over what these events should do, from sending an email to showing a notification. In this example, we will show a text overlay on the video.
Rules can be added by navigating to the Camera Rules menu:
On the Event Rules window, click the Add button to add a new rule.
From here, several options are available. First, on the left side, select Analytics Event from the When context menu. This is the type of event the Scailable plugin generates.
Select any, or multiple, camera(s) in the At context menu.
Under the Event Type context menu, you will find a number of event types the Scailable plugin can generate, from alarms to counting objects. In this example, we will select the Objects Counted type.
On the right side, it can be configured what should be done when one of these events is triggered. Here you could set up an email or notification trigger. In this example we will select the Show text overlay option in the Do context menu at the source camera
Example Settings for Objects Counted Rule
If set up correctly, and a model generating counts is selected and running, we should see an overlay on the camera feed showing us the object counts:
