Chapter 11 Map Management
The E‐map function gives a visual overview of the locations and distributions of the installed cameras
and alarm input devices. You can get the live view of the cameras on the map, and you will get a
notification message from the map when alarm is triggered.
E‐map is a static image (it do not have to be geographical maps, although they often are. Depending
on your organization's needs, photos and other kinds of image files can also be used as e‐maps)
which gives you a visual overview of the locations and distributions of the hot spots (resources (e.g.,
camera, alarm input) placed on the map are called hot spots). You can see the physical locations of
the cameras and alarm inputs, and in what direction the cameras are pointing. With the function of
hot region, e‐maps can be organized into hierarchies to navigate from large perspectives to detailed
perspectives, e.g., from floor level to room level.

Chapter 14 Statistics
Reports, created for a specified period, are essential documents, which are used to check whether
a business runs smoothly and effectively. In this software, reports can be generated daily, weekly,
monthly, annually, and by custom time period. You can use reports as basis in creating decisions,
addressing problems, checking tendency and comparison, etc.
14.1 People Counting Report
People counting statistics is to calculate the number of line crossing people in a specific area and a
certain time period by the people counting camera(s), which can help the storekeeper to analyze
the customers flow and number in different time, and the storekeeper can flexibly do some
business adjustment according to the report. You can view the people counting statistics in a line
chart or histogram, and generate reports for exporting the detailed data to local storage.
Before You Start
Add a people counting device to the software and properly configure the corresponding area. The
added device should have been configured with people counting rule. Refer to Add Device for
details about adding people counting device.
Steps
1. Click Report → People Counting to enter People Counting page.
2. Select daily report, weekly report, monthly report, or annual report as the report type.
Daily Report

each hour of one day.
Weekly Report, Monthly Report and Annual Report
As compared to daily report, weekly report, monthly report and annual report can be less‐
time consuming, since they are not to be submitted every day. The system will calculate the
number of people in each day of one week, in each day of one month, in each month of one
year.
3. Select the statistics time type and click
to set the time.
One Period
Generate the statistics in one time period.
Multiple Periods
Generate the statistics in two time periods, which can help you to compare the people flow
and number in two time periods.
For example, if you set the report type as month report, and set the March and April as the
statistic time, the people counting results in March and April will be displayed in a same chart
with different color, and you can compare the data in different day of each month.
